The 22-tonne HX220AL comes 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. It is powered by a 130kW/174hp Cummins B6.7 engine.

The HX220AL will incorporate some of Hyundai’s new technologies, which include EPFC (Electric Positive Flow Control). Hyundai says that EPFC results in the improvement of fuel efficiency and controllability by a flow reduction technique for excavator operations.

Peter Sebold, product specialist at HCEE, commented: “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.”

The excavator features Auto Safety Lock which is designed to prevent unintended operation/start of the excavator and improve safety.

Eco guidance indicates ‘inefficient operation’ status to prevent fuel consumption by inadequate working habits which is displayed on the machine cluster.All A-series excavators will also incorporate several new service features that have been developed and tested with the aim of improving machine uptime.

ECD (engine connected diagnostics) will support the after-sales technicians and dealers with a diagnostics report (via e-mail, mobile, app or HiMATE, HCE’s own telematic system) on the engine performance. This results in an improved engine fault-code monitoring and will ensure that the after-sales technicians arrive on site with the necessary tools to fix the error in one visit.
