The Hyundai R200LC-9S excavator has been specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of the civil engineering, plant hire, construction, agriculture and scrap handling industries.

HPE Africa placed an R200LC-9S demonstration unit on site with the largest fleet owners of earth moving equipment in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. The machine built gravel stockpiles and loaded this material into tipper trucks for 14 days.

Fuel consumption was carefully monitored by HPE Africa’s technical staff and was verified by the client. At the end of the 14 day period the R200LC-9S achieved an average fuel consumption significantly below the expected nine litres an hour.
