Two models from Hanix at the EHSOn show this year will be the H09D micro and the H17D mini. With their versatility, durability and uncompromising performance, these models are perfectly suited to the rental market. Both models are compact yet easy-to-service machines which are easily transported, simple to operate, and boast impressive digging depth. Both are Kubota-powered with variable piston pumps providing efficient yet powerful performance as well as smooth, responsive operations, and expanding tracks to ensure stability with ‘pin on’ dozer blade extensions. Pilot-controlled hydraulics are employed as standard together with 2-way auxiliary hydraulic lines.

In addition to these two models, Hanix offers a comprehensive range of mini-excavators currently up to 5.5t with a view to expanding its product range in the near future.
