New HX480AL crawler excavator to headline comprehensive range of heavy-duty quarry machines

AT Hillhead 2022, Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe will showcase their comprehensive range of heavy-line equipment that has been purpose built for the quarrying sector.

Headlining will be the 48-tonne HX480AL crawler excavator, which makes its first UK public appearance and will be at work in the demonstration area.

Powered by a fuel-efficient Stage V Cummins engine, the new machine is said to boast the highest engine power and hydraulic flow on the market. Its increased pump size allows the machine to work at lower rev/min for greater fuel efficiency and there is no EGR valve requirement.

Four-way proportional piping is available with hydraulic pressure and flow customizable on the cluster, whilst the HX480AL’s stacked cooling system delivers improved cooling capacity. A reversable fan for automatic cleaning is a further boost in the demanding quarrying environment.

Also showcased on the stand will be a series of further products from Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe’s heavy-duty wheel loader, wheeled excavator, and crawler excavator ranges – including the latest A Series models.
