Hyundai R200LC-9S excavator modified for use as a scrap metal handler.
The modifications included: Raising the cab by 1 meter to give the operator better visibility when loading scrap with the machine and extending the reach of the machine by fitting a removable extension.
In addition extra protection for the hydraulic pipes was provided and high pressure safety filters were fitted on the hydraulic return lines to protect the excavator’s hydraulic system in the event of a failure on the grab.
The two major factors influencing the customer’s decision to go with the Hyundai machine were the positive feedback they received from other HPE Africa customers in the Pietermaritzburg area and the exceptional fuel efficiency of the R200LC-9S excavator.
Warren Best of HPE Africa’s Pinetown branch took care of the sale and delivery of this unit.
