Danish Kjeld Werner Jensen founded the Hydrema Company on the 1st of June 1959, at the age of 29.

... Aalborg is managed by Jan Werner Jensen, of the second generation.

In Germany, in 1996, with the takeover of the Weimar-Werken (a significant producer of excavators), another production site was established. There also is the seat of the German distribution network. Todays products include dumpers, excavator loaders, mobile excavators and mine-clearing vehicles for military use. The dumpers of the 912F series are offered in many different configurations and are highly manoeuvrable.

They are also available as a road-rail version, as a concrete mixer and even as a chassis only, to suit individual requirements of the customers.

The 912FS has a front axle with suspension as a standard for better drive comfort during long uses. The machine has an empty weight of 8 t and the dumping bin has a maximum capacity of 5.6 m3 or 10 t. The dumper is powered by a Cummins QSB 4.4L engine with 108 kW (147 hp).

The model from IMC

At the end of 2019, a very successful serial-produced model with a high metal content emerged from the rather fragile looking pre-production sample shown at the Bauma. It comes in a pleasant little box, protected between two clear plastic clam shells and has been replicated to scale by IMC. Despite its modern design, the wide all-terrain tires give it a rustic look. The drive train has been modeled continuously and in addition to the cylinders for the steering, one can find a further two where the articulation is located; they are mounted crosswise to the driving direction to stabilize the vehicle when traveling over rough ground. The turning radius is too small but it is just enough to be satisfactory.

Compact, manoeuvrable and modern; so too is the model for which IMC is responsible.


The front part of the unit with the cabin is especially nicely detailed.


The dumping bin can be turned 90° in both directions, like the original.


The front part of the articulated unit is exactly engraved and is richly endowed with separately-applied details; it looks very much like the original. There are handrails made from solid wire, steps, running boards, a super finely-etched heat shield in front of the exhaust, rear view mirrors, window wipers and headlights with inserted glass. An especially nice detail is the fine protective grille over the rear window. A further etched part is the radiator grille which includes the logo. The multi-color interior of the almost fully glassed cabin is very visible and extremely exactly modeled and, of course, the Hydrema logo on the driver’s seat is visible.

The fully-functional dumping bin is made from a metal casting and is a good replication of the original. It turns to both sides by 90° and the 75° dumping degree of the original is even surpassed. The rear lights on the rear part of the unit are separately attached while the others are printed on to the dumping bin.

The applied paint color is without any faults and the many, sometimes very tiny stickers, make the model even more detailed. It would be desirable if further variations of this small dumper were to be made, for example, a two-way road-rail version matching the excavators.

The original of the nimble Hydrema 912FS small dumper weighs a maximum of 18 t when loaded.
