HPE Africa’s new 20 ton class crawler excavator is the Hyundai R200LC-9S which was recently launched in South Africa.

With an operating weight of 19,1 tons and a heavy duty 0,90 m³ bucket, it has been specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of the plant hire, civil engineering, construction, agriculture and scrap handling industries.

According to Alex Ackron, managing director of HPE Africa.  Due to improved fuel efficiency, when compared with competitors’ offerings in this class, customers can save up to 80% of their capital expenditure in diesel costs over 12 000 hours of a machine’s service.

“Users are also impressed with the long undercarriage design, which ensures greater stability in arduous operating conditions. Customers also appreciate the low maintenance requirements of this series and are impressed by the Hyundai factory offering of a two year/3 000 hour warranty as standard on the series.”
