Hyundai’s Finnish Dealer Sells Very First R430LC-9A in Europe

Suomen Telakone Oy has been the Finnish importer of Hyundai construction machinery since 1998. The company has recently sold the very first R430LC-9A crawler excavator in Europe to rock crushing company Murskaus Rämö & Karén Oy, based in the Finnish town of Humppila, which is a ‘stone’s throw’ from Suomen Telakone Oy!
Murskaus Rämö & Karén Oy carry out professional crushing , excavation, and a wide range of civil engineering works in its home town of Humppila and to the rest of southern Finland.
The brand new Hyundai R430LC-9A , operating at 42.6 tonne, works alongside the crushers and screener onsite tirelessly shovelling rock in its large bucket (2.75 cubic yard capacity and bucket breakout force of 20,411kg). The company also have other Hyundai models in its fleet – these include a 29 tonne R290LC-7A and a 36 tonne R360LC-7 tracked excavator.
A spokesman for Murskaus Rämö & Karén Oy said, “We purchased the R430LC-9A because it’s the ideal machine for large civil engineering and quarrying work, which is our core business. We have other Hyundai’s in our fleet and they are reliable, hardworking and do the job in hand and also represent good value for money. The aftersales service we receive from Suomen Telakone is also very good. The dealer is our neighbour and spare parts are always available and servicing is always fast. ”
The R430LC-9A is powered by a low emission and low noise, Cummins QSL9 Tier 4 Interim/Stage IIIB engine, which offers a rated power output of 310hp (231kw). This engine features the Xtra-High Pressure Injection (XPI) fuel system, which delivers a constant stream of pressurized fuel across all engine rpm speeds, providing cleaner combustion and improved engine response. This engine is designed to provide the lowest cost of operation in its class, offering customers the most economical and quiet operating machine with exceptional power and performance.
Hyundai -9A series excavators are engineered to be extremely fuel efficient with a proven 5% fuel savings in comparison to previous models. New innovations like the variable speed remote fan, two-stage auto decel system and the new economy mode help to conserve fuel and reduce the impact on the environment.
Like existing models in the -9A series, the R430LC-9A features Hyundai’s Computer Aided Power Optimization (CAPO) system. Using this system, the operator can set their own preferences for boom or swing priority, power mode selection, including three working modes, P (Power), S (Standard) and E (Economy), and optional work tool settings at the touch of a button, to suit the task in hand. Optimum precision has been achieved in the redesigning of the hydraulic system. Improved pump flow control reduces flow when controls are not being used to minimize fuel consumption. Thanks to improved hydraulic valves, precision-designed variable piston pumps, fine-touch pilot controls, and enhanced travel functions, the operator has super fine control of the machine during all operations.
These new machines also feature Hyundai’s HI-MATE telematics remote management system, which provides operators and dealer service personnel direct access to vital service and diagnostic information on the machine from any computer with internet access.
Users can pinpoint machine location using digital mapping and set machine work boundaries, reducing the need for multiple service calls. HI-MATE saves time and money for the owner and dealer by promoting preventative maintenance and reducing machine downtime.
The Hyundai R430LC-9A is making its UK debut at the ScotPlant exhibition on the Young Plant & Equipment Sales stand from the 25th – 26th April at the Ingliston showground, Edinburgh.
