Hyundai introduce de-tiering kits for excavators and wheel loaders

Hyundai Construction Equipment announce the immediate availability of de-tiering kits to adjust machines to those markets with a less stringent emission regulation and high-sulfur fuel

Recently Hyundai launched their all-new Stage IV excavator and wheel loader line-up. Machines that comply with the latest emission regulation, that are up-to 10% more fuel efficient and with 13% more operator’s space, 10% noise reduction, 50% more durability of arm and boom and 100% more safety with Hyundai’s exclusive AAVM (Advanced Around View Monitoring) System.

The all-new HX excavators and HL wheel loaders were predecessed by the Stage III B Hyundai 9A-series. For these models Hyundai have now introduced so-called “de-tiering kits” or “sulfur tolerance kits”. Hyundai dealers can de-tier machines prior to shipment to countries outside Europe and the US. De-tiering means automatically emission decertification.

“Hyundai excavators and wheel loaders last for a long time, so it’s good that when our customers choose for the all-new HX/HL series 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 offer these sulfur tolerance kits”, says Alain Worp, Director Sales CE for Hyundai Heavy Industries Europe.
