3 Great Reasons to Purchase a Hyundai HX130 LCR

3 Great Reasons to Purchase a Hyundai HX130 LCR

Why the Hyundai HX130 LCR?

Hyundai’s recent addition to its crawler excavator range, the HX130 LCR, is big news at the moment. The 13-tonne LCR model has filled a gap in Hyundai’s portfolio. There is a growing demand for this weight class as a compact swing machine. Operators can, therefore, enjoy enhanced performance features even whilst working in confined spaces. The  HX130 LCR has star billing. This is a result of its combining power with performance, ease of serviceability and a whole raft of safety features. These include the exclusive AAVM (All Around View Monitoring). In order to give our clients extra reasons to purchase the HX130 LCR, we have put together the following great package of incentives. Every Willowbrook Plant territory customer who orders a new Hyundai HX130 LCR for delivery between the 1st November and 31st December 2018 will qualify for:

  • 3 Years 0% Finance*
  • 3 Year/5000 Hour Manufacturers Extended Warranty
  • Hyundai HY 296 – 287 Piece Toolkit Including Roller Cabinet

0% Finance

The great benefit of 0% loans is, of course, that you pay no interest. That means that you have the chance to pay the same amount of money as a cash buyer, even though your payments are spread over a longer period

Manufacturer’s Extended Warranty

The HX130 LCR is typically covered by Hyundai’s industry-leading two-year 3,000 hours standard warranty. Willowbrook Plant will extend this warranty to a full 3 years or 5000 hours to give you extra peace of mind.

Hyundai HY 296 Toolkit

The HY296 contains a wealth of sockets, screwdrivers, spanners and wrenches. These are all contained within a robust powder-coated steel cabinet on castors for ease of movement and storage. This is the perfect addition to any workshop or garage facility.

The Willowbrook Difference

Come and visit us in Corby. Try the HX130 LCR or any of our other machines in our special demonstration area. Talk to our experts and enjoy our friendly Willowbrook welcome. Call us today on 01536 261671. * Terms and Conditions apply and are available on request.
