On November 9, 2014 Hitachi Construction Machinery hosted the 11th HCM Festival at the Tsuchiura Works. Torrential rains fell prior to the start of the festival. However, once the festival got underway, the rain died down to a drizzle. Despite the cold, around 4,500 people thronged the event.

This year characters representing different regions all gathered together. From the north, Uraha and Horoma, representing the town of Urahoro, Hokkaido the home of the Urahoro Test Site, Batamocchi from Kita-Akita City the home of Shintohoku Metal Co., Ltd., and local characters Mairyu from Ryugasaki and Tsuchimaru from Tsuchiura were all present.
