Hyundai Construction Equipment is entering the articular dump truck market with two models, the HA30A and HA45A

Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe is entering the articulated dump truck market with two models, the HA30A and HA45A.

The HA30A and HA45A have rated payloads of 28 tonnes and 41 tonnes respectively and are built around a full-time six-wheel drive concept, with front and rear limited slip differentials and a longitudinal differential than can be manually locked, for maximum drive and traction on difficult terrain.

EU Stage V-compliant Scania diesel engines to power both trucks. The HA30A uses a five-cylinder, 9.3-litre, DC9 turbocharged diesel, developing 375hp (276kW) and 1,876Nm of torque. The larger HA45A employs a six-cylinder, 12.7-litre DC13 diesel engine, producing a maximum 500hp (368kW) and 2,476Nm of torque.

The Hyundai HA30A and HA45A articulated dump trucks  are said to provide an ideal excavating partner for a wide range of crawler excavators and wheeled loading shovels.

Designed primarily for major earthmoving and muckshifting projects, highways construction and mine and quarry operations, the haulers provide maximum drive and traction in the worst site conditions, maintaining all-year round productivity for the customer.

The two ADTs are the first visible sign of the new cooperation between Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe (HCEE) and Hyundai Doosan Infracore (HDI), since the purchase of the Doosan business last year by Hyundai Heavy Industries Group. HCEE and HDI now operate as separate divisions within Hyundai Genuine, maintaining their independent management and dealer network structures.

Further technological integration will create natural synergies between the two companies, in research and development, design, engineering, procurement and manufacturing, boosting profitability for the Group. The two companies will develop integrated platforms for excavators and wheeled loaders in the future.
