The 52-tonne Hyundai R520LC-9 is suited to hard-rock applications, such as those in BWC’s granite quarry. Powered by a 255kW Cummins diesel, the R520LC-9 sits on a long reinforced track frame suited to the job.

"The track frame on the Hyundai is exceptionally strong, built with huge steel plate, gusseted in all the correct areas, and braced to minimise any fatigue areas one would probably expect when executing heavy rock work such as this," Ron says.
