Sun shines on Hatz at Hillhead 2018
Company’s new three- and four-cylinder advanced diesel engines impressed the crowds
The Hatz GB sales and engineering teams have now returned to their Hinckley headquarters from a sunny and very busy Hillhead 2018. At last week’s show they displayed a variety of advanced diesel engines including their new three-cylinder 3H50TIC and four-cylinder 4H50TIC engines.
The 3H50TIC is a new liquid-cooled three-cylinder diesel engine available in a fan-to-flywheel version as well as an OPU (open power unit) variant. With a displacement of only 1.5 litres and a maximum output of 130Nm, the Hatz 3H50TIC is believed to have the highest torque in its class in the market today.
The 4H50TIC is a 2-litre engine fitted with a turbocharged intercooler. An OPU version of the 4H50TIC was also on display.
Hatz GB used the show to explain to visitors how the clean output and modest dimensions of both of these engines would be ideally suited to power a wide range of machinery.
Sales manager Tarryn Jackson explained: ‘Our design and engineering team have put a huge effort into developing these engines and we were delighted to have the opportunity, at Hillhead, to detail all the new features and benefits these engines have to offer.
She continued: ‘The show was busy throughout the three days; a mixture of people visited our display area, some existing customers, but also a high number of individuals that have yet to consider our engines for their projects. They all seemed impressed with the qualities of the H50 range.’
The company also featured a new super-silenced water pump. This new 35hp power pack, powered by the Hatz 3H50TIC, for 4in and 6in hydraulic submersibles, is designed to meet with the forthcoming Stage V emission regulations.
The power pack, which is produced by Active Engineering as part of their Quax pumps range, is very compact and fitted with a 24-hour diesel tank. It also features automatic high oil and low level shutdown, making it safe to run unattended. The complete unit is mounted on a skid with fork pockets plus a safe lifting lug to allow easy movement around site.
Hatz say a brief walk around the Hillhead site uncovered a wide range of machinery powered by either an air-cooled or water-cooled Hatz engine. This included bowsers, crushers, plate compactors, hydraulic pumps, lighting towers and welfare units.
Hatz diesel engines have been in existence since 1910. From their manufacturing base in Ruhstorf, Germany, Hatz produce a range of modern diesel engines from 3kW to 55kW. Their UK subsidiary, Hatz GB Ltd, has centrally located facilities in Hinckley, Leicestershire.
