Hyundai introduce De-Tiering kits for excavators and wheel loaders
Hyundai Construction Equipment
announce the immediate availability of De-Tiering kits that allow Hyundai dealers to adjust their machines for markets with less stringent emission regulations and high-sulfur fuel restrictions.
Hyundai recently launched their all-new Stage IV excavator and wheel loader line-up. These new machines comply with the latest emission regulations and are up-to 10% more fuel efficient. Preceding the new HX excavators and HL wheel loaders were the Stage III B Hyundai 9A-series. For these earlier Hyundai models the manufacturer has introduced ‘De-Tiering kits’ or ‘Sulfur Tolerance kits’. These engine conversion kits allow Hyundai dealers to De-Tier machines prior to shipment to countries outside Europe and the US. De-Tiering a machine’s engine means automatically emission decertification.
Alain Worp, Director Sales CE for Hyundai Heavy Industries Europe said, “Hyundai excavators and wheel loaders last for a long time, so it’s good that when our customers choose an all-new HX/HL series machine from Hyundai, their previous machines can enjoy a second life in other countries. That’s how we can all help to make better use of our natural resources and build a better world. However, to assure that the new owners have the same peace-of-mind when operating their machines, we now offer these engine conversion kits.”
The new HX range of machine , in addition to being up to 10% more fuel efficient, also benefit from 13% more operator’s space and a 10% noise reduction. There’s 50% more durability of arm and boom and 100% more safety with Hyundai’s exclusive AAVM (Advanced Around View Monitoring) System.
