Excavators Latest News 

Hyundai ducks in

Hyundai has announced the introduction of its new A-Series of wheeled excavators.

The four Stage V compliant machines have operating weights of 14-23 tonnes and are each powered by low emission Cummins diesel engines.

The revised line-up starts with the HW140A, weighing in at 14.9 tonnes with a monoboom and 15.8 tonnes with a two-piece main boom. The HW160A is available with operating weights of 17.5 to 18.39 tonnes The compact radius HW170ACR is offered exclusively with a two-piece boom, and weighs in at 18.8 tonnes. The range is completed with the HW210A, which weighs in at 22.2 to 23.6 tonnes.

Access to the cab has been improved with additional steps, that conform to safety regulation ISO 2867, making it easier for the operator to enter and leave the seat. Additional steps also make it easier to access the machines’ upperstructure for service work.

The operator’s cab now features parallel wipers on both sections of the front windscreen, delivering increased coverage of lower and upper windows. An additional mirror on the right-hand side of the machine and a front upper pillar that is 50mm slimmer further improve visibility. The cab door features a larger lower window, making it easier to see the ground to the left of the excavator.

The wheeled A-Series models also feature Hyundai’s Advanced Around View Monitoring (AAVM) system, that uses video cameras to provide the operator with a 360° view of the machine on the in-cab monitor. The system includes Intelligent Moving Object Detection (IMOD) alerting the operator to the presence of other workers or objects within a 5m range of machine operation. The A Series wheeled excavators are offered with an optional radar with a second monitor, to provide rear detection of static or moving objects to a distance of 10m, in day or night-time conditions.
