Since then the company has been conducting rigorous testing at a quarry test site in Queensland to ensure it meets conditions intrinsic to the Australian mining industry.
The R1200-9 is powered by a Cummins QSK23 diesel engine, producing 740HP (551 kW) and is part of the Hyundai Dash 9 family.
It features new technologies and innovations such as Hi-Mate, Hyundai?s remote management system that uses GPS satellite technology to enable remote evaluation of machine performance, access to diagnostic information and verification of its location.
The R1200-9 will be launched by HCEA later this year.
