Hyundai in a Dash

Hyundai used Bauma for the European launch of its latest excavators and wheel loaders. The new

Dash 9 mini excavators include the 1650kg R16-9 and 5650kg R55-9 conventional tracked models, the 2880kg zero tail swing R27Z-9 tracked machine and the 5550kg wheeled R55W-9 mini. The standard sized Dash 9 excavators include tracked machines ranging from the 14 tonne R140LC-9 to the 51 tonne R520LC-9. Hyundai has also introduced a new 14.6 tonne R145LCR-9 short tail, tracked excavator. The new range of standard sized Dash 9 wheeled excavators extends from the 13.7 tonne R140W-9 to the 20.5 tonne R210W-9.The company has also launched a new 21 tonne class R210W-9 MH wheeled materials handler (shown above) with waste handling equipment. Also being promoted by Hyundai was the company’s new GPS-based remote machine management system called Hi-Mate. This live, factory-fitted monitoring system will enable owners to check the current location of their machines. They can also use H-Mate to retrieve operational and diagnostic date, usually on a daily or weekly basis.

New generation JCB backhoes

As well as showing a beautifully preserved example of one of its original backhoe loaders dating from 1953, JCB surprised many Bauma visitors by revealing a new generation of 3CX and 4CX models. Available later this summer, the latest designs feature an improved cab and a new EcoDig system that maintains hydraulic output at a lower engine speed in order to save fuel.

New to the JCB compact excavator line-up is the 8.5 tonne 8085ZTS model. The Loadall telescopic handler range

gets a new 527-58 (with a maximum lift height of 5.8m) and JCB is developing a high capacity (5 tonne) 550-80 which lifts to 8m. Bauma visitors were also able to inspect three new JCB Vibromax

vibrating rollers. These are the 1675mm drum width VMT860 articulated tandem roller (that weighs 9250kg with ROPS/FOPS cab) and two walk- behind double drum rollers - the 700kg class VMD70 (with 650mm wide drums) and the 900kg class VMD100 that has 750mm wide drums.

Important new IHIMER mini

An important new IHIMER compact excavator was the VXE12, which weighs in at 1260kg. The machine has a 9.5kW Yanmar Tier 4 compliant diesel engine and variable displacement main hydraulic pumps. The mini has a variable width undercarriage that retracts to 870mm to allow travel through 900mm wide doors. When fully extended to 1130mm, the operational stability of the machine is maximised and, as the tail radius is 550mm, it becomes a true zero tail swing excavator. Usefully, the TOPS/FOPS certified roll bar does not protrude beyond the tail radius. The maximum digging depth of the VXE12 is 2010mm

and the machine’s boom can be offset 80° to the right and 50° to the left. The boom cylinder is top mounted to minimise the risk of site damage and the hydraulic hoses are neatly routed inside the boom and through the top of the dipper arm.Two speed tracking (up to 2.3 and 4.0km/h) is standard.

Expanding Kramer Allrad lines

Whilst this Wacker Neuson company has traditionally been best known for wheel loaders, it now has an expanding line of telescopic handlers. Bauma provided a good opportunity to inspect the new, small 1245, which has a maximum capacity of 1200kg and a lift height of 4.5m.

This compact telehandler is 1.56m wide and 1.94m high. Powered by a 23.0kW Yanmar engine, it has a hydrostatic transmission and all wheel drive and steer. Maximum travel speed is 20 km/h as standard. Kramer also be exhibited its new 2506 telescopic handler. This 50.7kW machine has a maximum capacity of 2500kg and lifts loads up to 6m. Its width and height are 1.96m and 1.98m respectively, so it will compete in the popular 2x2m class.
