Product profile: Hydrema 707G site dumper

The Hydrema dump truck series have been popular ever since they entered the New Zealand market

Both the 10-tonne 912 range and the 20-tonne 922 range have proven themselves to be good machines for the harsh New Zealand conditions.


Hydrema says that the machines, which are designed in Denmark and built in Germany, have incredibly low ground pressure that enables them to reach places that others cannot.

Hydrema recently introduced a brand-new site dumper in the six- to nine-tonne size range. This machine has been designed to meet new required safety specs for site dumpers around the world.

It’s known that traditional site dumpers are unsafe and unstable, so the design team at Hydrema took the opportunity to develop the well-proven 912 dump truck and incorporate all its qualities into a much safer and productive six- to nine-tonne site dumper.

The manufacturers say the new machine—the 707G—has excellent all-round visibility, high stability, easy one-step access to the cab, and great performance. It’s fitted with a 3.8-litre Stage 5 Cummins engine and has a fully variable hydrostatic transmission achieving speeds of up to 34km/h, without interrupting traction.

Hydrema says its main focus for the 707G was safety and visibility and they’ve achieved 100% visibility forward and to the sides and have provided large mirrors and rear-view cameras for the rear. The cab, taken from Hydrema’s excavator range, offers the operator high levels of protection and comfort.

The machine comes as standard with the 180-degree multi tip (swivel tip)

For the best possible stability, Hydrema says they have copied the chassis design of the 912-model. The chassis comes with the unique Hydrema articulation with oscillation joint and double hydraulic stabilisers.  

The machine comes as standard with the 180-degree multi-tip (swivel tip), which gives the 707G greater flexibility and makes it ideal for working in confined areas. In addition to the new safety standards, the Hydrema 707G dump trucks are also able to ‘tread softly’ in the literal sense of the word.

All the operator functions are controlled by means of a multi-function joystick in the right armrest. Just as in the 912 dump truck, it follows the movements of the seat. In addition, the cab is suspended and equipped with air conditioning as standard.

In the future, Hydrema says they are hoping to release a multi-chassis model, which will enable users to mount a variety of chassis on the dump truck such as a flatbed, salt or water spreader, fuel bowser, etc.

The 707G will be released in New Zealand at the NZ National Fieldays® in June at the NZAM Machinery site (Site D22) and will be available to pre-order.
