“We make around 185 million brick a year here in Macon, GA, and another 45 million in Jackson, Mississippi. We start the process of making a brick from the beginning. We mine the clay, we bring it to the plant, and the clay is processed through our grinding operation. About six years ago we had all these different companies trying to sell us wheel loaders because we run about 4 at a time. I bought 3 different units from 3 different companies, and the Hyundai gave us less trouble….so from that point on, I’ve stuck with Hyundai loaders and have been happy with them since.”

One of the best warranties in the industry...
Our excavators and wheel loaders are powered by reliable and fuel-efficient tier 4 engines. Hyundai loaders feature Cummins engines on small and medium size models and Scania engines on larger models. Hyundai excavators feature Perkins, Cummins or Scania engines according to model size. Smaller mini excavators are powered by Mitsubishi or Yanmar engines.
Our loader cabs are generously-designed to be spacious and cozy with great features like: heated air-ride seats, bluetooth-enabled radios with hands-free calling, tilting / telescoping steering columns, two-way radio provisions, large 7” color and touchscreen monitors, heated mirrors and high-powered automatic climate control systems.
Service is designed to be easier on Hyundai loaders. Our machines are equipped with remote-mounted fluid drains, ground level access to engine oil filters and fuel filters, fully-tilting engine hoods, swing-out oil coolers, maintenance-free center pivot pins, remotely-located grease zerks, no DPF, and our industry-leading telematics solution, Hi MATE (free for 5 years.)
We design our loaders to be the safest machines on the jobsite, featuring standard rear-view cameras, optional 360 view camera systems with dynamic object detection, excellent operator visibility, convenient anti-slip steps and large grab rails, cab, attachment and rear-grill work lights, and automatic back-up alarms.
“Hyundai Edge is less downtime, comfortable cab, and productivity on moving materials.”
