/ 912G / 912GS / 912HM
In 1983, we explored new territory and launched our first compact dump truck. Since then, our skilled engineers have developed 9 generations of the dump truck, with the 912G-Series as the newest edition.
All of our dump trucks are easy to operate, have low maintenance costs, and are suitable for a wide range of applications, making them ideal for rental.
The combination of compact design, low weight, high stability, outstanding traction and power gives the 912G-Series excellent driving capabilities even in rough, hilly and muddy conditions.
The unique articulation point with oscillation and hydraulic stabilizers keeps the machine stable and safe by automatically transferring the weight to where it is needed.
In combination with the low centre of gravity and balanced weight distribution between the chassis parts, the dump truck is stable even on inclines, regardless of whether it is carrying a load or unloading over the side.
The chassis design, with a centrally located articulation point ensures that all wheels constantly track, which gives outstanding traction with minimum ground damage.
Maneuverability is maximized with a low turning radius of just 6,1 m and great positioning characteristics.
In combination with optional smart features like the swivelling body, the truck can work on sites with limited space.
Beneath the robust body are two strong double-acting tipping cylinders. These two cylinders provide a tipping time of just 6 seconds, to an angle of 75 degrees. The body is also designed with rounded corners so wet and sticky material will easily slide off when tipping.
The ground clearance when tipping is 110cm, making it possible to unload the material over edges, or in high piles to save space.
A popular feature is the MultiTip (option), where the dump truck body can turn in a 180-degree radius (90 degrees to each side) and delivers the payload with high precision. For example, the MuliTip is outstanding when unloading a certain amount of load sideways, while moving forward, or into a ditch. The MultiTip also allows you to work in places with limited space.
With the optional Auto-Body-Return function the body is automatically lowered back onto the chassis with a push of a button. With this feature, the operator can move on to the next task while the body lowers itself. It saves valuable time and allows the operator to focus on what happens in front of the truck.
The dump truck is fitted with a switch operated tipping throttle that automatically increases the engine speed when activated to quickly raise the body and thereby increase the efficiency. In cases where additional stability is required (e.g. when tipping over the side) the optional pivot lock can be activated.
A new hoist-assistance is available as an option. An inclination sensor in the dashboard shows the machine’s gradient both sideways and longitudinally. Should the inclination become too severe, a warning will appear to let the operator know if it is unsafe to tip.
Whether the machine is working on steep gradients or in poor ground conditions, the 912G-Series has the power to cope, with a state of the art 147 hp Stage 5 Cummins engine that offers the best power-to-weight ratio on the market.
The high torque offers power at low revs. Together with a new electronic cooling fan, this improves fuel economy and noise levels which is beneficial for both environmental and financial reasons.
The engine has an upgraded, fully welded cooler resulting in a 10% increased cooling capacity.
A well-proven intelligent 6-speed ZF Soft-Shift transmission offers full auto or manual gearshift. The gearbox will automatically shift 2 gears in the right conditions to smoothly increase acceleration regardless of the payload.
With its 1-step entry and ROPS /FOPS approved cab, we have designed a workspace, where the operator is safe and comfortably seated whilst operating the machine with a joystick. The operator quickly becomes familiar with the machines functions and operations in no time.
To improve the operators work performance, we have incorporated an A/C system with 8 air nozzles in the cab, so the operators feels comfortable at all times.
The spacious cab offers a soft-touch interior with ergonomically placed instrumentation, while the seat and armrests are fully adjustable. An optional driver’s seat with ventilation and automatic weight adjustment can further enhance the comfort.
The multi-functional joystick is an integrated part of the right armrest, providing intuitive finger-tip control of the main dumper functions: tipping, gear selection, forward/reverse and differential lock.
The engine is placed behind the front-facing cab, providing an unobstructed view both forward and to the sides. In combination with large side mirrors and the optional rearview camera, the 912G-Series dump truck has superb all-round visibility, which meets ISO standards 5006 and 14401.
Opening the large engine hood provides easy, ground-level access to the different service points. The new engine bay layout means it is easier than ever to service the dump trucks and to control oil levels and various filters. Wider steps let you safely reach all parts of the engine with ease.
Quick and easy access to the cooling package can be made through opening the service door behind the driver’s seat.
A new, automatic battery isolator shuts off all the electric systems of the machine when the operator turns off the ignition key and leaves the dump truck. At the same time, sensors in the doors turn on the electric system when the operator returns.
The timer can be adjusted via the dashboard to manage the shut-off process. An emergency battery isolator is located inside the cab.
New drain valves make it easier and more controllable to drain the oil, as you now have full control over the process.
With the optional, automatic central greasing kit, the machine takes care of its own lubrication requirements.
Depending on your needs and requirements, the machine range and configuration possibilities provide an array of different options.
All the Hydrema 912 models are available with standard rear tip, MultiTip (180°) and MultiChassis (without body), while the Flatbed is exclusive to the HM model.
As well, items like brushes and snow blades can be mounted both at the front and on the rear of the truck to enhance the usability and flexibility further.
The basic model in our line of articulated compact dump trucks is the Hydrema 912G. This model is well-known for its sure-footed handling characteristics and robustness, making it particularly suitable for rental.
The compact dump trucks of the 912G-Series are engineered and built to last for many years. They provide dependable performance, with low maintenance costs, and are easy to use for a wide range of applications.
The Hydrema 912GS (G-series Suspended) is equipped with a suspension system on the front axle. The system is an electrohydraulic spring system featuring independent suspension cylinders and level control that aligns the machine in the optimal position.
The driver will be less affected by vibrations during a long work day and will experience considerably greater efficiency, particularly on long transport stages or in rough terrain.
The Hydrema 912HM (High Mobility) is the same machine as the 912GS, but with higher and wider tyres of up to 800 mm, which gives it higher ground clearance and minimal ground pressure. Fully loaded the truck only has a ground pressure of 85 kPa.
This means the 912HM has exceptional off-road performance. It is perfect for soft and muddy terrain or sensitive surfaces such as fragile fairways on a golf course.
Reach remote and difficult to access worksites without a sweat! The 912HM Flatbed is the ultimate service truck. It is fast, strong and stable in uneven and rough terrain
The MultiChassis version is a universal platform where a variety of customized solutions can be mounted, such as water tanks, concrete mixers or salt spreaders.
Hydrema’s factory-fitted rail wheel system is an option specifically designed for the Hydrema 912GS. With this rail-wheel system, you can operate with high performance and efficiency both on and off the rail.
The rail machine is capable of operating in both low-rail and high-rail mode (where the rubber wheels are lifted 10 cm from the rail tracks).
A front 3-point hitch (category II) to mount items like brushes and snow blades can be installed at the front of the truck to enhance the usability and flexibility further. The hitch can lift objects weighing up to 1250 kg and operated from within the cab via the joystick in the right armrest.
All Hydrema machines can be delivered in customized colours to match your preferences, ensuring your dump truck will stand out and make a unique impression.
Extensive LED lights packages are available. Orange LED flashing lights (both front and rear) increase the visibility of the dump truck.
The new LED headlights and up to 12 powerful LED work lights change night into day.
