HPE Africa recently showcased the Hyundai R260LC-9S tracked excavators which they say can cope especially in harsh operating conditions in many industries, including construction, civil engineering, mining, and quarrying.
The robust Hyundai R260LC-9S excavator series – with an operating weight of 25.2 tons and a bucket digging force of 0.60 ~ 1.50m³ – is commended globally for fuel-efficiency, dependable operation in tough conditions, enhanced safety onsite, minimal maintenance requirements and extended service life.
“What’s impressive about the Hyundai 9S series is that operators are able to fully customise their work environment and easily adjust operating preferences, to suit their individual needs and tasks,” says Ross Collard, managing director at HPE Africa, part of the Capital Equipment Group (CEG) of Invicta Holdings.
“The engine and hydraulic horsepower work in unison through an advanced CAPO (Computer Aided Power Optimisation) system, to control flow for every application. At the touch of a button, operators can select their own preferences for boom or swing priority, power mode and optional work tools. The CAPO system also provides complete self-diagnostic features and digital gauges for critical information, including hydraulic oil temperature, water temperatures and fuel level. This system interfaces with multiple sensors placed throughout the hydraulic system, as well as hydraulic flow.
“Operators are also able to easily select the correct power mode for specific applications. For example, P (Power Max) mode maximises machine speed and power for mass production.
S (Standard) mode provides a reduced, fixed rpm for optimum performance, greater control and improved fuel economy. E (Economy) mode provides precise flow and engine power, based on load demand. By using the versatile U (User) mode, the operator can customise engine speed, pump output, idle speed and other precise machine settings for the specific job.”
