During tours of the facility of the Hyundai North American headquarters, guests visit the training center.
On Sept. 17, U.S. and Canadian Hyundai dealers, as well as the press corps, came together at the headquarters of Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas Inc. in Norcross, Ga., for a facility tour and briefing on the newest machines being unveiled for the North American market. Afterwards, the crowd boarded buses for Silver City Farm in Cumming, Ga., for a live demo and walk around of the machines and some hands-on operation time.
A picture perfect day provided dealers and press representatives an opportunity to get familiarized with the new Tier IV final Hyundai HX series hydraulic excavators ranging from 24 to 57-tons (22 to 52 t). The next new machines introduced were the Tier IV final HL900 series of wheel loaders, which tout a 10 percent lower fuel consumption than the previous 9A series loaders. The series 9 single and tandem rollers were unveiled, which includes four single drum models and two compact tandem-drum models. Hyundai hydraulic breakers also were showcased in a static display.
After the demo, guests made the short walk to the Silver City Saloon to enjoy beverages, a pig roast barbeque and some down home southern rock. The entire Silver City Farm facility made for a truly unique experience to see and operate the newest Hyundai machines, and opportunity to mingle and dine with the Hyundai staff and dealer network representatives.
