Hyundai Robex R180LC-9S now in South Africa

HPE Africa has launched the Hyundai R180LC-9S in the country

HPE Africa – exclusive distributors in South Africa for Hyundai earthmoving equipment – has launched the new fuel efficient robust Hyundai Robex R180LC-9S excavator to the local market.

“These high power machines have been engineered for optimum performance, precision control and enhanced operator safety. This model boasts the highest fuel efficiency in the industry’s 20 Ton class – an increasingly important feature as fuel prices continue to rise,” says Alex Ackron, managing director, HPE Africa, Capital Equipment Group (CEG) of Invicta Holdings Limited. “The R180 series, which is fitted with a specially manufactured bucket for the local market, has an operating weight of 19,1 tons and is operative in the 20 ton class range. Hyundai Robex R180LC-9S excavators are particularly well suited for demanding applications in plant hire, civil engineering, construction and agriculture.”

A computer aided power optimisation (CAPO) system ensures the optimum level of engine power and hydraulic flow for every application. The CAPO system also provides complete diagnostic features and digital gauges for critical information. For example, fuel levels and hydraulic oil and water temperatures.

These variable operating modes are: P – Power Max, which maximises machine speed and power; S – standard mode provides a reduced, fixed rpm and for maximum fuel savings and improved control, E – economy mode provides precise flow and power based on load demand.

Hyundai R180LC-9S excavators are fitted with air cooled six cylinder Tier 2 diesel engines, with class leading fuel efficiency equating to as much as 100% of the purchase price during the recommended useful life of a machine.

These machines have ground-line access to all critical services and grease points. The compact size of the engine allows for easy maintenance and the low engine height, with a side-mounted, gear-drive camshaft, ensure easy access.
