Hyundai introduce De-Tiering kits

Hyundai de-tiering kits

New kits allow dealers to adjust machines for markets with less-stringent emissions regulations

HYUNDAI Construction Equipment have announced the immediate availability of De-Tiering kits that allow Hyundai dealers to adjust their machines for markets with less-stringent emission regulations and high-sulphur fuel restrictions.

Hyundai recently launched their all-new Stage IV excavator and wheel loader line-up. These machines comply with the latest emission regulations and are said to be up to 10% more fuel efficient.

Preceding the new HX excavators and HL wheel loaders were the Stage III B Hyundai 9A series. For these earlier Hyundai models, the manufacturer has introduced ‘De-Tiering kits’ or ‘Sulphur Tolerance kits’.

These engine-conversion kits allow Hyundai dealers to de-tier machines prior to shipment to countries outside Europe and the US. De-tiering a machine’s engine means automatic emission decertification.

Alain Worp, director of construction equipment sales for Hyundai Heavy Industries Europe, said: ‘Hyundai excavators and wheel loaders last for a long time, so it’s good that when our customers choose an all-new HX/HL series machine 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 ensure that the new owners have the same peace of mind when operating their machines, we now offer these engine-conversion kits.’

The new HX range of machines, in addition to being up to 10% more fuel efficient, also benefit from 13% more operator space, a 10% reduction in noise levels, 50% more durability in the arm and boom, and much greater safety with Hyundai’s exclusive AAVM (Advanced Around View Monitoring) system.
