After releasing HL780-7A, a well accepted 30 ton wheel loader at Intermat 2006 and R800LC-7A, an 80 ton backhoe excavator more recently, Hyundai Heavy Industries Europe (HHIE) now reaches out to the quarrying and mining sector again by introducing R800-7A FS, an 86.5 ton Front Shovel crawler excavator
Based on the R800LC-7A backhoe, this front shovel version can rely on a wide range of extensively tested structures, systems and components. Hyundai’s well-known expertise in excavator manufacturing has been put to use when developing the front attachment of the R800-7A FS. Other than that, HHI engineers succeeded in limiting noise and emission levels notwithstanding a powerful TIER III Cummins QSX15 engine, delivering 497 HP. As one might expect from any Hyundai machine, R800-7A FS provides the operator with all comfort necessities for a pleasant work experience. The smooth and sensitive hydraulics system delivers precision, while performance and comfort levels can be set to the operator’s preference in the proven Hyundai -7A Series cabin, which, mounted on a riser, provides the operator with a better view on his working area.
