The first Hyundai 90-tonne HX900L sold in Europe has gone into service with a UK demolition contractor.
The machine is carrying a 10-tonne Fortress shear and was also supplied with a 4.85 m³ bucket for excavating. Customer ABLE UK has put it into operation on the north-east coast of England where it is shearing metal to size for recycling.
Negotiations with Cumbria-based dealer Taylor & Braithwaite on price and cost took five months from initial enquiry to delivery on site.
Chris Jordan, sales manager at the dealership, said there were several new enquiries for the HX900L following the deal with ABLE. “We are anticipating more orders in the near future.”
