A new video has appeared, which features Hidromek, the Turkish machinery manufacturers, specially built tunnelling excavator the HMK 220LC TX.

Built on the foundation of the company’s best seller and most popular machine, the HMK 220LC, the TX version features a specially constructed boom which can be hydraulically rotated 45o to both sides, and a specially profiled ripper bucket which works well in the tunnelling operation. The machine is also fitted with extra cab ROPS and FOPS, protection which has been designed to protect the operator in the event of any possible tunnel collapse.

Other additions include extra air filters to deal with the dusty underground conditions, additional lighting package and additional protective covers on the hydraulic rams.
