Hyundai Construction Equipment launches brand new HX130 LCR crawler excavatorPublished 10/10 at 16:23
Hyundai Construction Equipment has launched the new HX130 LCR, the third compact radius excavator model in the company’s HX series product line.
The 13t machine is also available in a second standard configuration, the HX130 LCRD, which includes a dozer blade. The new machine is the 15th HX series excavator model, filling an important gap in Hyundai’s excavator line up. The machine has been developed as market demand is growing for this weight class, especially for compact swing machines that give contractors the added versatility of working in confined spaces.
The HX130 LCR excavator is powered by a 55kW Perkins 854F Tier 4 final / Stage IIIB compliant diesel engine, providing impressive performance and productivity. The LCR model has a standard operating weight of 12.7t, while the LCRD model’s standard operating weight is 13.56t. It achieves a maximum dig depth of 5,570mm and maximum digging reach of 8,220mm with a bucket digging force of 10,369kgf . As with all Hyundai’s machines, the new HX130 LCR excavator comes packed with high end features, such as a 203mm interactive, adjustable, touchscreen cluster-monitor in the cab.
The monitor enhances operational safety using Hyundai exclusive AAVM (all around view monitoring), an optional system that provides a 360° surround virtual operating view. Included in the AAVM, is the IMOD (intelligent moving object detection) system that senses and warns the operator when objects come within 5m of the machine.
A two piece boom version enables the excavator to work with a bigger reach, while maintaining a reduced front swing. It comes with the boom articulation mounted to the underside of the standard boom; a solution ensuring effective protection against soiling and damage. The former is often requested by European construction companies working in road construction, utilities and urban environments, where working often involves confined spaces.
The HX130 LCR also features IPC (intelligent power control), computer aided power optimisation based on load demand, and an eco-breaker mode. The latter comprises of a selectable pump flow and improved fuel consumption when working with Hyundai hydraulic breakers and other attachments.
