bauma 2016 was a successful show for HKS. With this year's appearance HKS showed its high quality and technological diversity to a large, international audience. There were interesting discussions with numerous customers and partners from different countries and there were also some new projects discussed in this course.
New products of HKS
More than 54 versions in 18 sizes up to 100t weight HKS provides as product portfolio in the pivoting segment. XtraTilt - as the pivot actuator by HKS is called - has been exhibited in several sizes at bauma, even with different attachments to show the customer the variety.
The TiltRotator of HKS was demonstrated on a Terex of 11t class based on live demonstrations and here it was shown how versatile and effective this can be used in many different applications. The different requirements could be understood from the two excavator classes that can be used for gardening / landscaping on one side or the road works on the other side.
The new RotoBox was refined and shown with all advantages live on a Komatsu mini excavator.
