Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas introduced the Hyundai HX130LCR, the third compact-radius excavator model in the company's HX series product line. The 13.5-ton (12.2 t) machine also is available in a second standard configuration, the HX130LCRD, which includes a dozer blade.

The HX130LCR is the 15th model in Hyundai's HX series of excavators.

The HX130LCR excavator is powered by a 73.6-hp (55-kW) Perkins 854F Tier IV Final diesel engine. The LCR model has a standard operating weight of 29,750 lbs. (13,495 kg), while the LCRD model's standard operating weight is 31,290 lbs. (14,195 kg). It achieves a maximum dig depth of 18 ft. 4 in. (5.6 m) and maximum digging reach of 27 ft. (8.2 m), and provides bucket digging force of 22,860 lbf (10,369 kgf). The HL130LCR excavator is equipped with a standard 0.52-cu. yd. (0.40-cu m) capacity, 30-in- wide (76-cm) bucket.

“The new Hyundai HX130LCR fills an important spot in our excavator lineup,” said Corey Rogers, marketing manager, Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas. “The market demand is growing for this weight class, especially for compact-swing machines that give contractors the added versatility of working in confined spaces.”

Industry-Leading Operating Environment

“The HX130LCR is the latest model to give our customers what we call the Hyundai Edge — a powerful combination of performance, convenience, serviceability and safety features,” Rogers said. “Like all of our machines, the new HX130LCR excavator comes packed with high-end features.”

For example, it includes as standard equipment an 8-in. (20.3-cm) interactive, adjustable, touchscreen cluster-monitor in the cab.

Viewable on the monitor is the Hyundai-exclusive AAVM — or all-around view monitoring — an optional system that provides a 3,600-surround virtual operating view. Included in AAVM is the IMOD (intelligent moving object detection) system that senses and warns the operator when objects come within 16.5 ft. (5 m) of the machine.

Enhanced Fuel Economy, Advanced Hydraulics

Tier IV 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, according to the manufacturer.

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-percent 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 percent.

Serviceability enhancements include ground-level access to the fuel filter and convenient exterior access to the cab air filter.

Warranties

Like the other HX series excavators, both Hyundai 130LCR configurations are protected by Hyundai's three-year, 3,000-hour standard warranty and five-year, 5,000-hour structural warranty. Hyundai also includes five years of free access to its Hi- Mate remote management system which provides a variety of remote monitoring and diagnostic services.
