New Hyundai machine for Holzer Tiefbau
German demolition firm takes delivery of Stage V-compliant HX220AL crawler excavator
HOLZER TIEFBAU- und Baggerbetrieb are a family-owned and run business specializing in demolition, earthworks and civil engineering. Based in Zusmarshausen, and operating in the south of Bavaria, the company said quality, customer care and sustainability plays an important role in the daily running of the business.
To help maintain their strong reputation and foothold in the market, Holzer recently took delivery of a Hyundai A-series crawler excavator – the HX220AL.
Equipped with a Stage V engine platform, improved operator controls with 2D/3D machine guidance, new safety features and enhanced uptime support, the 22-tonne A-series HX220AL, since its launch, has already won the praises of many in the construction equipment industry.
Holzer are using the acclaimed excavator for demolition contracts, where it has proven itself working with variety of attachments including a sorting grab, hydraulic hammer, pulverizer and bucket. With a maximum digging depth of 6.73m and a maximum digging reach of 9.98m, the HX220AL has a bucket breakout force (ISO) of 165kN, an arm digging force (ISO) of 116.1kN and is powered by a Cummins B6.7 engine with a 130kW (174hp) net power output.
The new HX220AL also incorporates an array of new Hyundai technologies, including:
- EPFC or Electric Positive Flow Control. This results in the improvement of fuel efficiency and controllability by a flow reduction technique for excavator operations.
- Auto Safety Lock to prevent unintended starting/operation of the excavator for improved safety.
- Eco guidance, which indicates ‘inefficient operation’ status on the display cluster to prevent excess fuel consumption by inadequate working habits.
- MG/MC or Machine Guidance/Machine Control. This indicates the work status and automatically controls the attachment to assist the driver. MG displays the position of the bucket tip, whilst MC automatically controls grading with the bucket tip or face and has an automatic stop control (up, down, forward and cabin protection).
Excavator operator Peter Müller, who has 20 years’ experience as a plant operator, is full of praise for his new South Korean workhorse. ‘The excavator stands out from the others. It is incredibly quiet inside the cab and, because it is easy to preselect working pressure and oil quantity for the attachments, I have a really versatile machine,’ he commented.
Owner Jakob Holzer added: ‘We have enjoyed, and continue to have, a very good relationship with our local Hyundai dealers Fischer u. Schweiger GmbH for many years. When it was time to get our next heavy excavator for demolition and civil engineering works, we had no doubt that we wanted to invest in the latest generation of machines from Hyundai – the A-series.’
