Hidromek shows H4 Series excavators

By Leila Steed21 June 2022

Hidromek is displaying its latest H4 Series excavators at this year’s Hillhead equipment exhibition, which is currently taking place in the United Kindom and is expected to attract around 20,000 industry visitors from the recycling, construction and quarrying sectors.

On display at Hidromek’s stand (X4) are the HMK 145 LC SR, HMK 230 LC and the HMK 390 LC HD crawler excavators. 

The excavators, which are powered by diesel engines from Izuzu, have operating weights of 16, 23 and 39 t respectively, and are designed to be fast, productive and efficient. 

While the HMK 145 excavator model has a more compact design that makes it suitable for projects in urban locations, the larger HML 230 and HMK 390 are suitable for more demanding tasks - such as those involving aggregates and quarrying materials. 

The two larger machines offer significant improvements over the models in the manufacturer’s previous equipment range.

Thanks to shorter cycle times, bigger bucket capacities and faster operational speeds, both excavators are 17% more productive than their respective predecessors. 

Improvements to the attachment and hydraulic systems also mean that the HMK 230 is 21% more efficient, while the HMK 390 is 14% more efficient. 

Alongside these, the Turkish manufacturer is also showing the HMK 102B SUPRA backhoe loader, the HMK 640 WL wheeled loader and its HMK 635 WL wheeled loader - which was launched last year and features a Stage V compliant Mercedes-Benz engine that saves fuel by providing high torque at low rpms. 

While visitors at Hillhead can get a closer look at all of the machines, Hidromek’s HMK 640 wheeled loader and its HMK 390 LC HD excavator have also been made available as demonstration machines.
