Hyundai Heavy Industries will show its range-topping R1200-9 heavy excavator at bauma in Munich in April, before the machine is delivered to a customer in South Africa.

First presented at InterMat last year, the 120-tonne hydraulic excavator is designed for the mining and quarrying sector worldwide.

"Demand for efficient, large-scale mass excavation in minerals extraction and overburden removal has fuelled an increase in sales of large mining trucks and the equipment to load them," said Hyundai HI.

The R1200-9 is powered by a 23 litre, 6-cylinder Cummins QSK23-C engine rated 567 kW.

Machine design focused on insulation to achieve low internal and external noise levels.

The model on display at bauma is equipped with a heavy-duty, 7.55m back-acter boom, 3.4m dipper-arm, and 6.7 m³ bucket, which gives a maximum digging depth of nearly 8m, an outreach of 13.76m, and a load-over height of 7.8m. Maximum breakout force at the bucket is a massive 64.9 tonnes, with three selectable power modes.

"This is clearly a machine designed for extra-heavy digging duties and loading of large capacity dump-trucks," said Hyundai HI.
