Skid-steers, available from Hyundai Construction Equipment Australia , are suitable for earthmoving contractors and are common on construction sites. A range of attachments for skid-steers are available.
Skid-steers are designed to access tight areas and have higher capacity units with a range of attachments. According to Hyundai Construction Equipment Australia, skid-steers with accessories are an alternative to crawler excavators. Skid-steers can provide fuel savings and are easy to transport and deploy onto construction sites with tight access.
Hyundai Construction Equipment Australia note that the new track-based skid-steers enable operators to work on rough terrains. Improved safety and monitoring systems make for a safer machine and in turn a safer construction site. Operator comfort has also improved due to the ergonomic cabin design and suspension and anti-vibration systems.
Following are the skid-steer attachments:
- hydraulic rock breakers
- brush mowers
- forklift attachments
- stump grinders
- rock saws
- trenching attachments
- cold planers
- pole claws
- vibrating rollers
Hyundai Construction Equipment Australia offer HSL650 and HSL 850 skid-steer models, which provide a range of features including a quick attachment system and an optional self-levelling control system, so that the operator can concentrate on manoeuvring and lifting tasks for fast cycle times.
