Hi,

I would like to know a little bit more about the history of Hymac.
Can someone give me a timeline or something like that?
We have done that for Åkerman:

Brief Hymac History

Production of the first Hymac excavator the 480 which only featured 270 degree slew began in 1962. Between 1962-1966 312 of these were manufactured.
The 480 was replaced by the 5/8 cu yd 580 in 1964 versions of this model were prime products of Hymac until 1987 with over 10,000 units sold.
other models were introduced later including there largest ever machine the 33ton 1290 which first appeared in the early 1970s.
Hymac and the German firm Hanomag based in Hanover were acquired by the IBH group in 1980.
In the early 80's the Hymac range of four basic models were..the crawler 580D/DS, the crawler 450E/ELC and its wheeled version W450E+W350D, the crawler 201LC and its wheeled version W201 which were introduced in 1983 these were designed jointly by Hymac & Hanomag, IBH collapsed in 1983.
In 1984 Hymac was bought by Northern Engineering Industries production of all Hymac models recommenced soon after near Wolverhampton, however in 1987 the BM group took over the company and renamed it Hymac Group Ltd the following year ownership changed again!! Gordon Brown formed Brown Engineering (Hymac) during this time badged Italian models made by FAI were introduced the 13t W121, 21t 211 and the 25t 251.
Following the collapse of the Brown group in 1991 the company was bought by Irish dealer John Kennedy but despite launching new models in 1992 the Synchron 1301 & 1501 which featured Linde's Synchron load sensing hydraulic systems, production finally ceased in 1993 the very last machine ever built by Hymac was an 18t 181B model a sad end to a great British company. :sad:

Not only Hymas got a bad end. If we are thinking about many lorry makers in England many of them have also gone and are now in the history-books. It is too bad :sad:

Yes Lars,

That is very true, there have been so many great British companys that have sadly folded, as you say many truck firms like British Leyland, Guy, Seddon, AEC, ERF, all gone now.

Also along with Hymac we also miss Priestman, another British excavator manufacturer who are sadly no longer with us :sad:

Hi Pelle,

Welcome to the Hymac section & Thanks for your question, :wave:

Ok if you can possibly find out your machines serial number I may be able to find out its age, it may take a little while to research it but we will get there!! :???:

Sure would be nice to see some photos of your machine in the Hymac section of the Album.

I look forward to more contributions from you Pelle :buga:

Best Wishes

Nick. :thummar:

I guess that means Right Hand Drive, (Cab on the right) :driver: which most Hymac's were until the introduction of the 580D models

Plattlarvare fanns i slutet på 60 talet. Traktorlarven BT kom nog alldeles i början på 70 talet
