Hyundai Construction Equipment launched its Stage IV/Tier 4 HX/HL excavator and wheel loader lineup which meet the latest in European and US regulation standards. Preceding the new machines were the Stage III B/Tier 4 interim 9A series. It’s for these models that the De-Tiering kits have been introduced.

As US/EU customers upgrade to the new models, the previous models are expected to be sold as used machines overseas. The De-Tiering kit allows modifications to be made to the diesel engines to allow the use of high-sulphur fuels, before the machine is shipped to countries outside the US/EU.

"Hyundai excavators and wheel loaders last for a long time," Hyundai Heavy Industries Europe sales director Alain Worp says.

"So it’s good that when our customers choose an all-new HX/HL series machine from Hyundai, their previous machines can enjoy a second life in other countries. That’s how we can all help to make better use of our natural resources and build a better world."

"However, to assure that the new owners have the same peace-of-mind when operating their machines, we now offer these engine conversion kits," Worp says.
