Hydrema’s 912HM flatbed truck will join seven other models in the articulated dump truck product line. Based off the 912HM articulated dump truck model, the 912HM flatbed features a 1.6 ft. (.5 m) extended rear half with a built-in tipping frame ideal for the construction, utility and oil and gas industries.

The 912HM flatbed is equipped with a 131 hp (97.6 kW), Perkins E1104D-44TA Tier III engine and accommodates up to 22,000 lbs. (18,144 kg) providing superior hauling capacity and combined with a 24 mph (38.6 kmh) travel speed, Hydrema’s newest addition offers maximum productivity, according to the manufacturer.

“We are pleased to expand our product line with the addition of the 912HM flatbed truck,” said Kris Binder, vice president of Hydrema North America. “The launch of this new model closely aligns with our goals to continually diversify our equipment offerings in order to provide innovative solutions for the evolving needs of our customers.”

The 912HM flatbed includes a heavy-duty, robot-welded, articulated chassis as well as Hydrema’s front axle suspension. The newly developed suspension features a center pivot with pendulum bar and double hydraulic stabilizers allowing operators the option of locking the oscillation movement at up to 22 degrees.

Along with the durable design, Hydrema’s 912HM offers low ground pressure — 7.6 front psi and 12.3 rear psi — which makes working on even the softest ground conditions possible. The machine utilizes its 2.6 ft. (.8 m) wide 30 in. (79 cm) wheels, high ground clearance, articulated pivot steering system and automatic weight transfer to successfully and efficiently traverse delicate terrain.

Standard features of the 912HM flatbed include a suspended front axle, suspended cab, front outside heated mirrors, adjustable steering wheel, interior red cab lighting for night use, heated seats, radio with CD and MP3 players, rotating beacon, eight megabeam working lights and automatic AC.
