The A-series stands for machines that comply with the European stage V emission levels – and cover HCE Europe’s complete product range, mini and medium sized excavators, heavy excavators and wheel loaders. The company has driven product development to a level where it can proudly say it exceeds by far the market requirements.
The introduction of Hyundai’s A-series will have its opening on this year’s Bauma exhibition in Munich, where the company has a first selection of this new breed of machines on display. Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe (HCEE) has decided to not only fulfil the European mandatory requirements, but to go way further, in order to offer to its broad customer base a new range of machines delivering a maximum in performance, enhance productivity, add crucial safety features, improve uptime management and uptime of the machines while at the same time stay convenient for the operators – in short: the birth of the new A-series!
At Bauma 2019 HCE Europe is going to unveil its first models of the brand-new A-series crawler excavators. The 22-ton HX220A L and the 30-ton HX300A L models will pave the ground for its smaller and larger siblings. The roll-out of the different models will follow a well-defined introduction schedule, stretching over the coming two years.
Major topics like fuel efficiency, productivity, safety, convenience, improved uptime and detailed machine management are key. There are multiple new technologies applied on the new A-series excavators. These novelties will be showcased at Bauma, implying the new products entail more than an engine upgrade.
The HX220A L will incorporate some of Hyundai’s new technologies, as there are:
All A-series excavators will incorporate several new service features that have been developed and tested with the goal to improve machine uptime, reducing unnecessary time wasters caused by the machines' downtime.
The A-series stage V exhaust after-treatment is furthermore based on an all-in-one solution, which means a unique exhaust muffler integrating the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), the DEF injector (SCR) and a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Most notably the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) could be removed, having been compensated by further improving the other technologies. This results in a simple but powerful and environmental-friendly solution with increased reliability and easy maintenance – and most of all reduced fuel consumption and lower operating cost.
Facing a continuous strong demand on heavy wheel loaders in the European market, HCEE is ready to present its new range of wheel loaders, the A-series, to tackle the challenges of its many diverse customer segments.
As a forerunner of the new Hyundai wheel loaders A-series, the 19-ton HL960A will be shown at Bauma 2019 in a world premiere. Powered by a Cummins QSB6.7 Stage V engine, delivering 225 hp, this model, as well as the whole range of Hyundai A-series wheel loaders will be available for the market shortly after Bauma.
The new A-series wheel loaders of HCE Europe offer a whole new range of features and functions. HCE’s product development will proudly present a plethora of leading technological improvements, which directly relate to improved fuel efficiency, enhanced safety, longer uptime and improved fleet management.
IWM for improved fuel efficiency
An intelligent work mode (IWM) optimizes the engine performance to increase engine torque at a lower rpm. This provides just another means for improved fuel efficiency, while optimising engine power and improving engine response time.
The large-sized operators cabin features an electro-hydraulic joystick to conveniently control all functions of the front-loading arm. Optionally the machine can be equipped with a second advanced steering lever enabling driving the machine by joystick – a function much requested by many operators.
With the convenience and safety of the operators in mind, HCE has developed a remote door opening system. This allows the operator to open the cabin door already when approaching the machine, reducing several risks when opening the door while standing on the steps.
The Hyundai A-series wheel loaders are standard-equipped with a rear-view camera. For increased safety on the job site, an advanced 4-camera system is available as option. The highly advanced AAVM (Advanced Around View Monitoring) system is a combination of AVM which secures the field of vision in all directions by nine views including a 3D bird’s eye view, and IMOD, the intelligent moving object detection. In addition, Hyundai offers a reverse drive radar system, similar to that of a car, allowing to detect obstacles by day or night. All these safety features installed, makes the Hyundai A-series wheel loaders become one of the safest in the industry.
For increased versatility Hyundai Construction Equipment offers also some of its wheel loader models with an extended loading frame as well as a dedicated “Toolmaster” version providing exact parallel lifting forces, for its customers working in agriculture, recycling, waste handling, forestry or industrial applications.
