Hyundai launches ‘game changer’ excavator

HYUNDAI has introduced its new A-series HX220AL Stage V-ready excavator.

The manufacturer described the 22-tonne crawler as a ‘game changer’, with the model featuring a new engine platform, new hydraulic flow regulation, improved operator controls with 2D/3D machine guidance, and new safety features.

The HX220AL incorporates some of Hyundai’s new technologies including EPFC (Electric Positive Flow Control), Auto Safety Lock, Eco guidance, and MG/MC (Machine Guidance/Machine Control).

The A-series exhaust after-treatment is based on an ‘all-in-one’ solution that combines an exhaust muffler, integrating the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), the DEF injector (SCR) and a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). The exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) could be removed by further improving the other technologies.

Peter Sebold, product specialist at Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe 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.”
