Hatz get mixed up with Trojan

Trojan mixers in build

UK asphalt mixer manufacturer uses German-built diesel engines on two special-build projects

TROJAN Mixers, a division of Suffolk-based Tex Engineering Ltd, have just completed two asphalt mixer special-build projects, both involving the use of Hatz diesel engines.

The first project was for two Trojan special-build 1.0-tonne asphalt mixers and the second was for two Trojan special build 1.25-tonne asphalt mixers, with each mixer featuring a 1D81C Hatz silent pack engine.

These bespoke mixers are outside of the normal range of Trojan machines and were individually designed and built so that each pair can sit side by side on the back of a standard flat-bed lorry.

Wayne Luckie, Tex Engineering’s sales manager, explained: ‘The most important element in building these mixers was having the correct physical size engine along with low noise and clean emissions. We selected this particular engine primarily because Hatz were able to supply an engine that fitted exactly to our proportions.’

The robustly designed and fully encapsulated Hatz 1D81C has a power range from 5.4kW to 9.6kW, is certified to EPA Tier IV final and fulfils EU Stage V below 19kW. It is suitable for operation in remote areas or for applications without constant monitoring.

Established more than 30 years ago, Ipswich-based Trojan are one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of mastic asphalt mixers, and currently offer six standard models ranging from the 12cwt Scorpion to the 4.0-tonne Chieftan.

Hatz diesel engines have been in existence since 1910. From their manufacturing base in Ruhstorf, Germany, Hatz produce a range of modern engines from 3kW to 55kW. The company’s UK subsidiary, Hatz GB Ltd, is centrally located in Hinckley, Leicestershire.
