About the company

Simple and ingenious

Our founder, Swedish contractor John Sonerud’s, vision of streamlining agricultural tractors by retrofitting excavators, was as simple as it was ingenious. Now, decades later, we have taken this idea and done something extraordinary.

Huddig develops, manufactures and sells HUDDIG excavator loaders for the overhead line, railway and construction industries. Our own brand, HUDDIG, has long been Sweden's market leader in excavator loaders. We offer the ultimate solution for effective work in the segments we call City, Cable and Rail.

HUDDIG excavator loaders employ a unique combination of articulated center pivot and transmission that allows the machine to operate in almost any terrain.

Since its inception in 1959, Huddig has made more than 12,000 excavator loaders.
