By Leila Steed26 March 2020
Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe (HCEE) has introduced a new 22-tonne HX220AL crawler excavator as part of its A-series equipment range.
Peter Sebold, Product Specialist at HCEE, said, “The HX220AL kicks off the introduction of our new A-series – a range of machines with intelligent features, that will cater for the demand of our modern society for smart machines, clean machines, but still robust and productive powerhouses. And that is Hyundai’s strength - solid and unbreakable products.”
Described by the manufacturer as “a game changer”, the new model features a Stage V-compliant engine by Cummins and improved operator controls with 2D/3D machine guidance and machine control.
The HX220AL has a maximum digging depth of 6.7m and a digging reach of 9.9m.
The company’s A-series excavators all include a number of service features. Designed to improve uptime, these include Hyundai’s Engine Connected Diagnostics (ECD) which provides a diagnostics report for aftersales technicians and dealers, and Hyundai’s Machine Connected Diagnostics (MCD), which allows users access to machine performance data.
In addition, owners of A-series machines will received a monthly report, including an operation summary and a fuel consumption analysis, from HiMATE, the manufacturer’s remote fleet management telematics system.
Hyundai said the model would also include some of its latest technology. Among its offerings are Electric Positive Flow Control (EPFC) for improved fuel efficiency, an Auto Safety Lock feature to prevent accidental machine starts and Eco Guidance, which identifies inefficient operations and allows users to reduce fuel wastage.
