The first 707G delivered for the U.S. market arrived at the Hydrema U.S. headquarters in Cumming, Ga., in August.
Introduced at bauma 2019, the all-new Hydrema 707G is a class size that essentially straddles the classification of articulated truck and site dumper. The Danish manufacturer designed this smaller-sized truck based on its 912 dump truck and incorporated features that meets or exceeds current world-wide safety specs for site dumpers, according to the manufacturer.
Site dumpers are prone to safety concerns stemming from a wide range of issues which include poor stability and visibility. The new 707G design moves away from the old site dumper design and moves toward what may be considered a "hybrid" site dumper/articulated dump truck. This versatile machine now puts Hydrema in the 6-9-ton sector and expands its offerings into a new class size for even greater flexibility and for use in even more confined working areas.
The overall cab design has complete visibility to the front and sides of the machine and utilizes large mirrors and a rear-view camera to provide complete 360-degree visibility. The roomy cab takes the design of the Hydrema MX wheeled excavator and has enhanced comfort and protection and is both ROPS and FOPS certified.
At the heart of the machine is a 3.8-liter Stage 5 Cummins diesel engine, which meets 2020 emissions regulations. The new 707G comes in two models with engine sizes of 74 hp (55 kW), which does not require AdBlue, and 122 hp (90 kW) with the 122 hp version being named the Power+ model.
These machines feature a fully variable hydrostatic transmission and are capable of speeds over 20 mph without interrupting traction. In ECO-mode, the hydrostatic transmission keeps fuel consumption to a minimum.
