Technical details

Product Overview

The HX520A L is powered by a robust Stage V-certified Cummins X12 engine with an innovative integrated after-treatment system that reduces both emissions and maintenance requirements. It delivers all the power you need to handle demanding jobs, along with better fuel efficiency and fast levelling and truck loading times. A range of smart technologies enable precise management of the engine output and pump flow rate. The new EPIC (Electric Pump Independent Control) hydraulic system improves efficiency through automated control of the individual hydraulic pumps, while a lifting work mode improves fine control by boosting RPM, activating power boost and controlling pump flow. Additional features optimise operation and monitoring to enhance productivity every single day.
