Hyundai introduces its HW150A CR wheeled excavator

Manchester-based groundworks and civil engineering specialist contractor PD Developments has enhanced its operational capabilities with the addition of a Hyundai HW150A CR wheeled excavator to its growing fleet of equipment. The machine is the company’s first wheeled excavator, joining a line-up of crawler machines from three to 23 tonnes operating weight.

“We’ve hired in ducks before and found them to be a very versatile piece of kit,” says director Damian O’Grady. “The ability to move about quickly on site, to lift and carry and to be able to dig as well, it does a bit of everything.”

PD Developments was established three years ago by Damian and fellow director Paul Lackey. The groundworks sub-contractor initially hired in its equipment as required, for a variety of civils projects across the North-West. It purchased its first machine, a 9-tonne HD Hyundai, from local dealer HES Enterprises and has since built the fleet to 10 excavators and a growing number of site dumpers.

“Dealing with Andrew at HES is easy,” says Damian. “If you want a new machine, you rarely have to wait, as HES usually has the equipment in stock. They also provide a good level of service, looking after all of our Hyundais.”

HD Hyundai’s HW150A CR is one of a growing range of A-Series wheeled models, with operating weights of 6-21 tonnes. Tipping the scales at just over 17-tonnes, the HW150A CR has a compact radius counterweight design, making it ideal for urban use or for confined job sites. The machine is powered by a Stage V compliant Cummins diesel engine with an all-in-one exhaust after treatment system.
