Bauma Conexpo India, Hyundai Construction Equipment, Anup Nair, VP & Business Head
Hyundai Construction Equipment India has emerged as the fastest growing excavator manufacturer in the country, having crossed the 20,000 mark. The company offers the entire range of excavators, from 8T to 51T, manufactured at their plant in Chakan, besides the mini-excavator, which they import.
At the expo, the company launched its globally acclaimed wheeled loader – HL635. The HL635 has a 3,000 kg rated operating load and is used in wide range of applications including construction, mining, quarrying and earthwork among others.
The loader has a proven powerful, fuel efficient and energy saving engine coupled with reliable transmission and sturdy axle, and features that would boost the productivity of the customers while also reducing their operating costs. Additionally, the HL635 sports operator cabin that is best-in-class in terms of comfort, ease of operations and safety.
As with its other offerings, the HL635 wheel loader too will be positioned in the value segment, and will be available for sale beginning Feb 2019 onwards. “We do not want to be a price player in the country. We do not want to sell our machines to customers who put price above the value of the machine,” said Nair. Hyundai is banking on two propositions: One, modernisation, and second, expansion of production capacities. “We are investing about Rs 300 crore,” informs Nair.
