The Hidromek machines bring together sophisticated first-class technology with unique design that resembles luxurious or sports cars. Their basic recognizable feature is the combination of shiny white varnish with red painted accessories.


Apart from that, they are easy to use and provide a high degree of comfort thanks to a wide view and ergonomic working space. The Hidromek machines have enforced construction and they can work in difficult working conditions.


Testing possibilities

Ford Trucks vehicles with the Hidromek technology were up for testing and the company representatives were there for questioning. To be able to test the technology in the field is always interesting and attractive for the customers. Even we did not resist the offer of a ride in a Ford Trucks vehicle on a sunlit storey of the quarry.
