Hyundai Construction recently introduced their R60CR-9A compact radius excavator. This versatile, nimble machine is designed for maximum performance and is ideal for tight, confined job sites where space is limited such as urban or residential settings and sensitive landscapes.
The 13,010 lb (5,900 kg) R60CR-9A is equipped with a 63 hp (47.0 kW), fuel efficient, Tier 4 Final Yanmar 4TNV98C engine for proven, reliable power. The engine is electronically controlled for optimum fuel to air ratio and clean, efficient combustion and provides low noise, anti-restart features. The R60CR-9A boasts a bucket breakout force of 9,190 lbs (40.9 kN), a maximum dig depth of 11’9” (3,570 mm) and a .24 cubic yard (.19 cubic meter) bucket capacity. The tail swing radius on the R60CR-9A is a tight 3.7 feet (1,080 mm).
The R60CR-9A’s advanced hydraulic system features optimized matching between the joystick and main control valve to improve smoothness of operation. An arm flow summation system provides energy savings, reduced cavitation and increased speed. To improve safety and avoid boom drift, the R60CR-9A is equipped with an integrated boom holding system. The R60CR-9A’s boom swing function allows the boom to be offset left or right within an operating range, making for efficient work in congested areas. Other valuable features include a hydraulic damper in the travel pedal and a hydraulically lubricated swing reducer with a leak-free grease chamber.
Hyundai’s R60CR-9A was built to last with improved structure strength. This model’s cabin structure has been fitted with stronger but slimmer tubing for added safety and improved visibility. Low-stress, high-strength steel is integrally welded to form a stronger, more durable upper and lower frame. Structural integrity was tested by the Finite Elements Method (FEM) analysis and long-term durability tests.
Operator comfort was kept a top priority with the R60CR-9A. This model features a roomy and ergonomically designed cabin for an enhanced operating experience. A large upper roof glass provides additional visibility and a roller shade is provided to reduce sun glare. An advanced audio system with AM/FM stereo with USB player input, plus remotely located control is perfect for listening to music favorites. A Bluetooth hands-free cell phone function is available for safe and convenient phone use. A suspension seat, adjustable arm rests, easily accessible control levers, multiple storage compartments and a fully automatic air conditioning system are also provided for the utmost comfort.
The R60CR-9A comes standard with an advanced LED cluster allowing the operator to select personal machine preferences. The monitor displays engine rpm, engine oil temperature, water temperature and information for all electronic devices. Button selections are provided for auto idle mode, max power mode and travel speed. A security feature is also provided to prevent the machine from starting without a proper password.
Maintenance is easy on the R60CR-9A compact excavator. A newly-designed wide open engine hood, easy change air filter, centralized grease fittings, and a tilting cabin make for convenient, hassle-free servicing. Additionally, Hyundai’s R60CR-9A is equipped with long life components including bushings designed for extended lube intervals of 250 hours – and polymer shims to resist wear and reduce noise. Extended-life hydraulic filters (1,000 hours), long-life hydraulic oil (5,000 hours), along with more efficient cooling and pre-heating systems help extend service intervals to reduce operating costs and machine down time.
As one of the latest models in the R2-Series excavator lineup, the Bobcat® E88 delivers durability, performance and quality for more productivity. Technically speaking, it's a compact machine, but it brings big performance with its redesigned engine and optimized lift performance, plus undercarriage and counterweight improvements. All these enhancements make this excavator one of the highest-performing models in its size class. With impressive over-the-side lift capacity, you can dig with greater confidence over the side of the machine. Put it to the test against similar models from other manufacturers. You'll see that the E88 can outwork the competition.
