Rising above the competition

The Hyundai HX140L fitted with a Kocurek hi-rise cab proves to be a perfect fit for any waste recycling yard.

Through listening to customers feedback and understanding their requirements, Hyundai dealers, Molson have worked with Kocureck to modify a standard HX140L with a 2m hi-rise cab allowing operators on waste recycling sites to pick through material and load bins safely and efficiently.

Molson Service Director, Martyn Tucker said: “With a tried and tested base machine like the Hyundai HX140L, we knew we had a solid and reliable machine to use as a platform for this conversion”. He went on to say; “We have worked with the team at Kocureck on many projects before, so we know how to achieve the best result together. Their engineers worked with us every step of the way on this, from concept to completion and will continue to provide after sales care alongside Molson”.

The standard HX140L comes with a powerful and reliable Perkins 126Hp, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. This complete with Kawasaki variable displacement, tandem axis piston pumps make this one of the leading machines in the 14t category.

With the finished machine weighing in at 17,700Kg, with a total reach of 8m (4.6m boom and 3.0m arm) and a 2m hi-rise cab, it really is a highly versatile option. Other additional specifications Molson have put on this custom built unit include 700mm steel tracks fitted with bolt on rubber blocks to prevent damage to concreted yards. A revising fan to keep the engine running perfectly in a typically dusty environment.

For operator and working environment safety Molson have fitted a front screen guard, boom and arm check valves, white noise travel alarm, blue strobes and a green seat belt beacon in addition to the standard orange working beacon. The final addition of a rotation circuit allows full operation of the NPK DG14 (300l capacity) selector grab.

NPK are world-renowned for their high build quality throughout their attachment range and the DG14 is no different. Offering operators a smooth yet quick cycle time, but with superior build quality and low running cost.

Molson Green will be exhibiting at the RWM exhibition on stand number OA134 at the NEC in Birmingham from 12th - 13th September 2018. The compan will showing the HX140L fitted with a Kocurek hi-rise cab.
