The new, robust Hyundai R260LC-9S crawler excavator from construction equipment manufacturer Hyundai Earthmoving Equipment is now available and has been introduced to the Southern African market, says Hyundai Construction Equipment distributor HPE Africa.
The R260LC-9S crawler excavator is designed for civil and construction applications and is suitable for efficient operation in civil engineering, mining, aggregates, construction and plant hire industries, according to HPE Africa.
The excavator is equipped with features that benefit construction in the mining industry, and includes a longer undercarriage and larger bucket than the R220LC-9S (22 t) crawler excavator model, a more powerful engine and more powerful hydraulic pump than the 22 t R220LC-9S, but a similar boom and stick to that of a 30 t R300LC-9S.
“Notable features of this series include advanced engine technology for high productivity, fuel efficiency and low emissions; computer-aided power for optimum control of the machine and a high-strength operator cab with ‘exceptional’ visibility for greater safety on site,” explains HPE Africa MD Alex Ackron.
Ackron adds that the Hyundai 9S series excavators are fitted with carefully selected components, designed for extended service life.
