Hyundai HW140 at Collins Plant Hire

Owner-operator Richard Collins of Ireland-based Collins Plant Hire has invested in a brand new Hyundai HW140 wheeled excavator, with an operating weight of 13,880kg. Richard purchased the machine from Hyundai dealer Whelan Plant Sales, based in the Carrowdotia, County Clare.

The machine was supplied as a package from Whelan Plant Sales, based in Carrowdotia, County Clare, complete with an Engcon EC219 tilt-rotator, which was retrofitted in Whelan’s yard, in addition to a Leica iCON iXE2 2D machine control system, supplied and fitted by Eoin Genochi, a Leica Machine Control Technician at Levelling Equipment Services (LES), based in County Kildare.

The Leica 2D system allows multiple elevations and slopes to be constructed, at any orientation without resetting the machine or laser height. The iCON iXE2 also provides integrated tiltrotator support, giving the operator clear guidance information about the actual tilt and rotation position relative to the job. The tilt-rotator also has DC2 controls, Engcon’s proportional control system, and integrated ePS, enabling the operator to see the exact excavation area via the machine control system’s display in the cab.
