HPE Africa has supplied a Hyundai R200LC-9S excavator to Agni Steels SA, which has been specially modified for scrap metal handling application.

HPE Africa customises Hyundai R200LC 9S excavator for scrap metal handling pic 1 002“This Hyundai R200LC-9S 20 T excavator is currently being used during 24-hour shifts at the Agni Steels mini steel melting unit, commissioned in the Coega Industrial Development Zone of the Eastern Cape. Of note is the machine’s low diesel consumption, which has been monitored and confirmed at 9,8 l/hour,” says Alex Ackron, MD of HPE Africa.

“Apart from the machine’s impressive productivity at the plant and its features for smooth and easy control, Agni Steels management is pleased with the swing speed, the long undercarriage design, which ensures greater stability and the auto idle facility that contributes to diesel savings. Other benefits are the non-common rail engine which reduces service costs and the Hyundai factory warranty of two years or 3 000 hours,” adds Ackron.

To cope efficiently with the demands of scrap metal handling, the HPE Africa workshop raised the cab of this machine by 1 m and extended the dipper by 1 m. An ‘Orange Peel’ grab was installed, which provides a grab capacity of 650 dm³ and load weight of 920 kg.

The excavator, with the grab attached, has a maximum lifting capacity of 1,7 tonnes (with a 70% safe working load) at a 4,5 m height and 6 m reach.

A computer aided power optimisation system in the Hyundai R200LC-9S excavator ensures optimum level of power and hydraulic flow for every application. The operator is able to select preferences for boom or swing priority, power mode and optional work tools. The operator cab ensures clear visibility on site, greater safety and enhanced comfort. The excavator has ground-line access to all critical service and grease points for easy maintenance.

HPE Africa works closely with its broad customer base to modify equipment, when necessary, to meet exact performance requirements. Field tests ensure every machine conforms to stringent quality and safety specifications, while meeting exact application requirements.
