Hyundai launch the new A-series HX220AL excavator
Introducing the new A-series – the HX220AL is one of the first Stage V ready Hyundai machines. Packed with new technologies, excellent fuel efficiency, advanced machine controls and augmented uptime support, the new 22-tonne crawler excavator is what Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe (HCEE) describes as ‘a game changer’....
Advanced technologies for the modern jobsite
The HX220AL introduces a new era. Coming with a new engine platform (Stage V), a new hydraulic flow regulation, improved operator controls with 2D/3D machine guidance, new safety features, and improved uptime and productivity, this 22-tonne crawler excavator will leave its mark on the construction equipment industry.
Matrix of New Technology on the HX220AL
The HX220AL will incorporate some of Hyundai’s new technologies, which include:
- EPFC or Electric Positive Flow Control. EPFC results in the improvement of fuel efficiency and controllability by a flow reduction technique for excavator operations.
- Auto Safety Lock prevents unintended operation/start of the excavator which improves safety.
- Eco guidance indicates ‘inefficient operation’ status to prevent fuel consumption by inadequate working habits which is displayed on the machine cluster.
- MG/MC or Machine Guidance / Machine Control. Indicates the work status and automatically controls the attachment to assist the driver. The MG displays the position of the bucket tip. The MC will automatically control the grading with the bucket tip or face and will have an automatic stop control: up, down, forward and cabin protection.
New Service Features on the HX220AL
All A-series excavators will incorporate several new service features that have been developed and tested with the aim of improving machine uptime.
All-in-one exhaust after treatment with the Cummins engine: best-in-class solution
The A-series stage V exhaust after-treatment is based on an all-in-one solution, which combines a unique exhaust muffler - integrating the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), the DEF injector (SCR) and a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).
Importantly, the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) could be removed, by further improving the other technologies. This results in a simple but powerful and environmentally-friendly solution - with increased reliability and easy maintenance – and most of all reduced fuel consumption and a lower operating cost.
Commenting on the HX220AL
Peter Sebold, Product Specialist at HCEE, comments: “The HX220AL kicks off the introduction of our new A-series – a range of machines with intelligent features, that will cater for the demand of our modern society for smart machines, clean machines, but still robust and productive powerhouses. And that is Hyundai’s strength - solid and unbreakable products.”
