HPE Africa’s Hyundai R220LC-9S excavators for high productivity

HPE Africa’s Hyundai R220LC-9S tracked excavators, which are considered premium machines in the Hyundai range, are designed to cope safely and efficiently in all conditions, including steep and slippery terrain in remote locations.

The robust Hyundai R220LC-9S excavator series – with an operating weight of 21,9 Tons, a bucket digging force of 133,4 kN (2 m arm) and an arm crowd force 144.2 kN (2 m arm) – boasts features for fuel-efficiency, reliable operation, enhanced safety, minimal maintenance requirements and extended service life.

“New innovations include the two-stage auto deceleration system and a highly-efficient economy mode, that reduce fuel consumption and minimise the negative impact on the environment,”

explains Ross, Collard, managing director of HPE Africa.

“A Tier 2 Hyundai HM 5.9 engine, with a power ratings of 107 kW @ 1 950 RPM, offers efficient fuel consumption of an average 15,00 litres per hour in economy mode, an average of 16,62 litres per hour in standard mode and an average of 18,17 litres per hour in power mode. Added to this, these machines have an efficient pump flow, rated at 2 x 222.3 litres per minute.


What’s also important to customers, is the long undercarriage design

What’s also important to customers, is the long undercarriage design, with nine rollers on each side of the machine, for greater stability in tough operating conditions. The undercarriage has tapered side frames for efficient debris clean-out, a sealed track chain, with urethane seals, a track rail guard, a grease-type track tensioner and safe and comfortable bolt-on steps.

The advanced operator cluster, with a colour LCD screen and toggle switch control, allows the operator to select machine preferences for precise control during various operations. These options include boom or swing priority, power mode, machine diagnostics and optional work tools. A computer aided power optimisation (CAPO) function automatically selects the ideal hydraulic flow balance for boom and swing motions, smooth operation and reduced fuel consumption.

Ground-line access to critical services and grease points of the excavator, ensures easy serviceability and reduced maintenance time.

HPE Africa – sole distributor in Southern Africa for Hyundai Construction Equipment, as well as McCloskey crushing and screening units and Soosan hydraulic hammers – offers national sales, spares, technical, maintenance and repair services.
