Willowbrook Support Hyundai at Hillhead 2018

Willowbrook Support Hyundai at Hillhead 2018

The sun beat down amid record temperatures at the end of June as the bi-annual Hillhead Construction Exhibition rolled into action for 2018. Willowbrook Plant Services were pleased to be involved with their manufacturing partner Hyundai in the delivery, set up and removal of the machines. Their sales team also joined dealers from all over the country in manning a busy and vibrant stand for the popular plant manufacturer.

Hyundai HX130 LCR Showcased at Hillhead 2018

Hillhead 2018 was an opportunity for Hyundai to showcase their newly launched HX130 LCR. This was their third compact-radius excavator and it forms part of their HX-Series range. Powered by a 55Kw Perkins 854 diesel engine the HX130 excavator produces optimum power and fuel-efficiency.

HX130 LCR Safety Features

Another key feature of this brand-new machine is an adjustable touchscreen cluster monitor and optional 360-degree monitoring system. This is called the AAVM. This system can also detect objects that come within 5 metres of the machine and warn the operator. This has helped the HX Series to be among the UK’s safest excavators.

HX130 LCR Improved Efficiency and Fuel Consumption

The HX130 LCR excavator’s hi-tech hydraulic system results in 13% faster cycle speeds than earlier models. It also features a ‘boom float’ setting for improved grading and a ‘fine swing’ setting for improved load control. IPC (intelligent power control), computer-aided power optimization according to load requirements, and an  ‘Eco breaker’ mode for reducing fuel usage are also featured.

This was just one of eight Hyundai machines shown at Hillhead 2018. Other crawler excavators, compact excavators and wheeled loaders completed the range.

Hillhead 2018 Breaks Attendance Records

Hillhead in Derbyshire is the world’s biggest working quarry show. The hot weather and a record number of exhibitors swelled the attendance at Hillhead 2018.  There was a record number of nearly 20,000 visitors. Willowbrook Plant Services were delighted to have been involved in showcasing Hyundai’s impressive array of machines and playing their part in such a successful trade show.
