History of Hanix Excavators
In 1965, the Handozer Group was founded in the Japanese city of Nagano, which consisted of three divisions. Handozer Industry was engaged in the production of small-sized construction machines, Nissan Kizai Co Ltd - sales of products, and Lease Service Ltd - provided service support and equipment rental. This separation of powers still exists today. The first product of the Handozer Group was a manual digger - dozer, which is why the concern was called Handozer. In 1971, Handozer produced the world's first rotating hydraulic mini-excavator, and in 1983, the company's engineers invented a rotating mini-excavator with a minimum rotation radius. In 1984, Nissan Kizai began selling its products in the US. In 1987, the company's mini excavators were awarded the excellent quality medal.
In 1992 Nissan Kizai became Hanix, taking the first 2 letters from Handozer and the first 2 letters from Nissan. An "x" was added at the end, as a symbol of the infinity of the company's development. Hanix is a name known in Europe. In the mid-90s, the need for maneuverable equipment in Europe increased, and Hanix mini excavators began to be sold here in excess of 1000 units annually. In 1998, the year of the Winter Olympics, the company's specialists developed a platform on which the Olympic flame was delivered to Nagano. In 2000, Hanix model H75B mini excavators with a lifting capacity of 7.5 tons were put into production, and in 2004, industrial production of the H36R model with a rotary bucket began. In 2005, Hanix 180 degree mini excavators received the award for the best design among models of this type. In 2008, Hanix launched the first model of the D series mini excavators, the H55DR. This is the latest generation of mini excavators that can work without an operator in places of radiation contamination, explosions, etc.
