Hyundai announced the HX130LCR excavator at the International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) in Louisville, KY. The 13.5-ton machine is the company's 15th HX series excavator model and the third compact radius model in its HX series product line. The unit is also available in a second standard configuration, the HX130LCRD, which includes a dozer blade.
“The Hyundai HX130LCR fills an important spot in our excavator lineup. Market demand is growing for this weight class, especially for compact swing machines that give contractors the added versatility of working in confined spaces," said Corey Rogers, marketing manager, Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas.
An advanced hydraulic system includes a Boom Float mode for better grading control, Fine Swing mode for improved load control when swinging, and up to 13% faster cycle speeds than previous models. The HX130LCR also features IPC (Intelligent Power Control) computer-aided power optimization based on load demand, and Eco Breaker mode for selectable pump flow and improved fuel consumption when working with Hyundai hydraulic breakers and many other attachments. The combination of faster cycle times and more power result in productivity increases of up to 5%.
