Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas

Hyundai introduced the Hyundai HX130LCR, its 15th HX series excavator model and third compact-radius model, which gives contractors the added versatility of working in confined spaces.

The 13.5-ton machine is powered by a 73.6-horsepower Perkins 854F Tier 4 Final diesel engine. It has a standard operating weight of 29,750 pounds, achieves a maximum dig depth of 18 feet 4 inches and maximum digging reach of 27 feet, and provides bucket digging force of 22,860 foot-pounds. Also standard is a 0.52-cubic-yard capacity, 30-inch-wide bucket.

High-end features include the cab’s 8-inch, interactive, adjustable, touchscreen, cluster monitor.

Viewable on the monitor is the Hyundai-exclusive AAVM (All-Around View Monitoring), an optional system that provides a 360-degree-surround, virtual operating view. It also has the IMOD (Intelligent Moving Object Detection) system that senses and warns the operator when objects come within 16.5 feet of the machine. This helps make the Hyundai HX series among the safest excavators to operate on any job site in North America.

Tier 4 Final engine technologies, a more-efficient vertically stacked cooling design, efficient electronic fan clutch, and hydraulic system innovations on the Hyundai HX series excavators contribute to an overall fuel efficiency improvement of up to 10 percent compared with previous models.

Hyundai also announced that its exclusive Hi-Mate remote management system – already available on the HX series and other equipment – is now standard on four of its compact excavators, including three crawler models and one wheeled model.

Another significant announcement was rollout of a comprehensive new dealer signage and identity campaign that incorporates an updated Hyundai Construction Equipment logo. Reflecting the continued expansion of its North America dealer network, the new design  incorporates a more streamlined version of the company’s logo and a new graphic element using stylized letters to represent crawler tread marks.
