Construction Equipment Guide

The new R235LCR-9 excavator features new hydraulic technologies and a multitude of standard features that make it an outstanding performer and a great value.

The R145LCR-9 has an operating weight of 53,830 lbs. (24,416 kg) and comes equipped with an 18 ft. 8 in. (5.6 m) boom and 9 ft. 7 in. (2.9 m) arm and a 1.18 cu. yd. (.9 cu m) heavy duty bucket. All Hyundai machines include a bucket within the base machine price.

The R235LCR-9 is designed to be compact and stable, practical for working in confined work areas. When working over the side of the machine, the rear counterweight hangs only 6 in. (15 cm) beyond the 32 in. (81 cm) track pads.

All 9 series excavators include the following in the base machine price: heated air-ride suspension seat, transparent skylight, radio with mp3 input and remotely mounted controls, adjustable sunshades, cup holders, hands-free cell phone mode, ultra bright 7 in. color monitor, control pattern selector valve, battery cut-off switch, lockable fuel cap, right and left side boom flood lights, HI-mate (remote management system), and Hyundai’s total coverage warranty.

Think Comfort

All 9 Series models feature a new larger, operator’s cab with additional sound proofing insulation and a reinforced structure for a quieter and safer operating experience. The R235LCR-9 features adjustable height left and right control consoles for additional operating comfort. The heated air-ride seat is fully adjustable with infinite custom configurations for ergonomic operator preference.

A redesigned air conditioning and heating system provides enhanced climate control with 20 percent more output, improved defrosting and better air circulation. Visibility is significantly enhanced now with a larger one-piece right side window, larger rear window, smaller front window seam and upper transparent skylight. Storage compartments and cup holders are placed in convenient locations for optimal access.

Think Performance

Hyundai’s 9 series may be extremely efficient, however, power and performance are still top priorities, according to the manufacturer. New Tier III Cummins engine technology in the R235LCR-9 provide electronic control with maximum horsepower and optimal torque. Harnessing the newly improved engine and hydraulic technologies, the new CAPO (computer aided power optimization) system offers a user friendly interface and customizable machine operation through power mode, work mode and user mode selection.

Ensuring machine performance and reduced maintenance issues, all Hyundai’s include the HI-mate remote management system which uses GPS/Satellite technology and a user friendly, internet-based system to access critical machine information from anywhere in the world. HI-Mate service is provided free of charge for the first three years of ownership.

Each new 9 series machine comes with Hyundai’s total coverage warranty, which includes three years or 3,000 hours of full machine warranty, five years or 10,000 hours of structural guarantee, three years of free fluid analysis, and a free initial service call.
