On September 26, 2023, Tobias Nilsson, who owns and runs TN Grävtjänst in Sweden, switched to Huddig's latest model. The step was then taken from HUDDIG 1260D CITY to HUDDIG 1370 CITY, and the improvements are significant, according to him. He is incredibly impressed with the updated excavator unit.
"My 23 years at Huddig have been a fascinating journey. I have to pinch myself sometimes when I think about the many models I have been involved in, not least the world's first full hybrid loader excavator. A lot has happened during my years at Huddig, and our development together is fantastic. I am proud of where we stand today, with TIGON and our latest model, HUDDIG 1370."
