The Hydrema MX14 wheeled excavator is able to comfortably operate on Causeway street in downtown Boston. The mobility of the Hydrema MX wheeled excavators allows contractors to avoid the extra cost of hiring a lowboy and driver to move the machine to different sites. The operators can simply drive the machine down the road to relocate as needed. The notorious narrow, congested streets of Boston are no match for a Hydrema compact wheeled excavator.

ATS Equipment has been named the exclusive New England dealer for Hydrema.

The Boston-based dealer will carry the full Hydrema line.

“Hydrema has been looking for a way to strongly enter the Boston market, and ATS Equipment is the perfect match,” said Kris Binder, executive vice president of Hydrema – North America. “The Hydrema machines are a nice complement to the lines that ATS already carries, such as Kobelco excavators and Kawasaki-KCM loaders. ATS Equipment is a family-owned and operated company, with an outstanding reputation for customer service, and strong work ethic. We feel confident that their company will best serve the New England market.”

Hydrema's MX Series compact wheeled excavators meet the weight class of any competitor's excavator, but is compact enough to effectively work in confined spaces, such as narrow streets, busy roads, and other confined spaces, according to Hydrema. With the machine's 130-in, (3,300 mm) swing circle, and ultra short 61-in. (1,550 mm) back end, this machine can easily work on the cramped side streets of any city, and even on Greater Boston's antiquated rail and subway system.

The MX Series, which includes the MX14, MX16 and MX18, features a dual-circuit system with load sensing and a high pressure hydrostatic swing system with separate pumps, electronic power regulation of pumps for working hydraulics, a mode-control for precision work and an ECO-mode for fuel savings.

MX Series compact excavators sport a Cummins QSB 4.5 Stage 3b engine with DOC catalyst. Maximum performance is 167 hp (123 kW) and maximum torque is 624 Nm at 1,500 rpm.

Hydrema's 912 Series dump trucks, which include the 912E, 912ES and 912HM, offer a load capacity of 22,046 lbs. (10,000 kg) and run on a Cummins QSB 4.5l EPA Tier IVi engine with DOC catalyst. The 912 Series boasts an intelligent transmission that will automatically shift two gears in the right direction to smoothly increase acceleration, regardless of payload.

The 922 dump trucks are equipped with a QSB 24 valve , 6.7 L 6 cylinder engine with turbo and intercooler 264 hp max. torque 730 lbf. ft. at 1,300 to 1,500 rpm.Hydrema also manufactures backhoes, rail excavators and rail dump trucks.

ATS Equipment is excited to be welcoming the Hydrema line to its product offerings.

“Not only is Hydrema the perfect complement to the other major lines that we rent and sell, but the Hydrema machines also will be a tremendous asset to our customers, primarily those in the utility market that need a wheeled, mobile excavator, which can lift street plates, handle heavy digging and operate large hydraulic hammers for ledge work,” said JC Connolly of ATS Equipment. “We are ecstatic to be able to provide such a quality machine from a reputable manufacturer.”
