Power and precision
Power is provided by a Hyundai D34 diesel engine with two-can exhaust aftertreatment, that includes a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC), Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). This Stage V compliant engine has no requirement for Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) contributing to reduced fuel consumption and lower maintenance costs.
The engine develops a powerful 75kW (100hp), with 460Nm of torque available from just 1,400 rpm. It employs a variable pressure turbocharger, delivering optimal air flow to the engine under all load conditions. Like on Hyundai’s heavy excavators, operators can choose from three power modes - Power, Standard and Economy.
Robust and durable
The rigid chassis with low-maintenance heavy-duty axles is built to last. The transmission is directly connected to the rear axle for optimum ground clearance and the front axle has oscillation with a ram lock function for uneven ground. The HW100A boasts an advanced disc brake system and it is possible to use up to 100% of pump performance through the travel motor to drive or brake the machine by hydraulic flow.
The driveline has a two-speed mechanical transmission and a two-speed hydrostatic travel motor. This allows the operator to define the maximum travel speed for each application, with a maximum of 40 km/h in the highest gear.
At the working end, the HW100A comes with a two-piece main boom and a long reach dipper arm. Maximum digging reach is 7,820mm, while maximum digging depth is 4,245mm. Lift capacity at a 5m radius ranges from 1.55 tonnes over the side, to 2.33 tonnes over the front of the machine with the blade down.
Customers can choose between a front-mounted parallel dozer blade and independent stabilisers at the rear, a front grapple bar with rear-mounted dozer blade or front and rear outriggers. All options are interchangeable with the same bolt-on mounting system. In each case, the outriggers operate within the machine width.
Despite its compact rear end, the HW100A provides easy access to all service and maintenance items from ground level. There are wide access doors at the rear and to the sides of the machine and maintenance data is also available directly from the monitor in the cabin.
A superb operator environment comes as standard on the HW100A, with a completely adjustable steering column and heatable, air-suspended operator’s seat as standard. The machine boasts low-effort proportional joystick control and breaker plus other function buttons on the servo lever heads. An 8” touchscreen, familiar to operators of Hyundai’s larger A-Series machines, provides all operating data and function control.
The operator also benefits from a DAB radio with Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity. Hyundai’s Hi-Mate telematic monitoring system is available, making it easier for fleet managers to maintain control of service and maintenance work across the fleet.
“The new Hyundai 10 tonne wheeled excavator is the ideal machine for demanding customers looking for a high-performing, versatile machine, offering maximum manoeuvrability,” says Peter Sebold, Hyundai’s Product Manager for Wheeled Excavators. “It will bridge the gap between our existing line-up of wheeled excavators, ranging from 5 to 21 tonnes, turning Hyundai’s product offer into one of the most comprehensive in the market.”
