Latest Hyundai excavator boasts EPIC features

HYUNDAI Construction Equipment Europe (HCEE) has launched the latest machine in its A-series range: the HX300AL 30-tonne Stage V-compliant crawler excavator.

Described by the manufacturer as the ‘ideal workmate’ for infrastructure and general construction, the model boasts a new hydraulic flow regulation, operator controls with 2D/3D machine guidance, and new safety functions.

New technologies include EPIC (Electric Pump Independent Control), Auto Safety Lock, Eco guidance, and MG/MC (Machine Guidance/Machine Control).

The HX300AL incorporates Hyundai’s new engine platform, which includes a stage V Cummins engine with all-in-one exhaust after-treatment system. The exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) has been removed, which Hyundai said results in a ‘de-complexed, powerful and environment-friendly’ solution.

Peter Sebold, product specialist at HCEE said, “One of the standout features of the new HX series is named EPIC, and rightly so. The new Electric Pump Independent Control (or: EPIC) is an energy-saving technology that reduces the pump flow rate during levelling and truck loading operation by controlling the pump’s displacement individually.

“Think next-level load sensing, fuel saving of up to 8% daily average and general all-round operator and owner satisfaction, that’s just another win for this highly anticipated machine.”
