The new HX900 L, which is specifically designed for the demands of the European construction and quarry industries, will replace the R800LC-9. This 90-tonne machine has been developed using market-leading technology to deliver exceptional productivity. The HX900 L is the second largest Hyundai machine in the range sitting behind the gargantuan 120 tonnes R1200-9.
