Hyundai CE debuts HW250MH material handler


The new Hyundai HW250MH wheeled material handler is designed to meet a wide range of on-road and off-road applications. 

The wheeled material handler is derived from Hyundai’s wheeled excavator product line, which includes three HW series models and one 9A series compact model. 

However, the HW250MH deviates from the wheeled excavator product line in two fundamental respects. First, instead of a boom and arm for digging and dumping, the HW250MH features a boom and goose neck, which is designed for lifting and carrying bulk materials or other objects. 

Second, it features an elevating cab that can rise up to 2.5 metres above its platform position to provide the operator with a better view of the work area.

“The HW250MH wheel material handler will find a variety of applications in marine terminals, scrap yards and other bulk materials handling facilities where its agility, load-and-carry capacity and versatility will deliver outstanding productivity and efficiency,” said Stan Park, vice president of distribution and marketing at Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas.

HW250MH specifications

Key specifications of the HW250MH wheeled material handler include an operating weight of 26,100 kg when outfitted with the standard grapple from SNS, and net power of 174 hp at 2,000 rpm through a Cummins QSB6.7 diesel engine. 

The addition of front and rear outriggers, and an optional larger grapple assembly, increases the operating weight to 27,500 kg.

As well, the wheeled material handler features a swing speed of 9.7 rpm, and a maximum travel speed of 35 km per hour. 

In the cab, the machine features an intelligent, 20-cm touchscreen monitor, an advanced audio system, auto climate control and a deluxe operator’s seat.

For serviceability, the HW250MH is designed with centralized lubrication, car air filter access, a batter disconnect switch, an auto-diagnostic system and Hi-Mate — Hyundai’s telematics system. 

The material handler can also be equipped with Hyundai’s AAVM (All-Around View Monitoring) system.

Equipped with four cameras, including one on the left and right-side mirrors, one on the front of the cab and the standard backup camera, the monitoring system is able to provide a virtual 360-degree operating view of the jobsite.
