E&TL Jones has swapped seven of its older machines for new crawler excavators from Hyundai’s HX range: five HX140L and two HX220L excavators.
The contractor first started using Hyundais in 2014, buying three R140LC-9A and two R160LC-9A tracked excavators
Now these have reached the end of the warranty period, they are being traded in for new machines.
The HX140L crawlers are a straight swap for the R40LC-9A excavators that the team has been using but the two R160LC-9As have been upgraded to larger HX220L excavators.
“We have kept in close contact with everyone at E&TL Jones throughout the warranty period, making sure everything was in order and that service levels were kept up,”said Luke Mercer, area sales manager of Hyundai dealer Molson. “That has also given us the opportunity to listen to what the team there actually need to make their work easier. They decided they needed a couple of larger machines and that upgrading the R160LC-9A excavators would be ideal.”
