The Hyundai HX130LCR is the third compact-radius excavator model in the company's HX series product line. The 13.5-ton machine is also available in a second standard configuration, the HX130LCRD, which includes a dozer blade.
The HX130LCR excavator is powered by a 73.6-hp (55-kW) Perkins 854F Tier 4 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 (5,570 mm) and maximum digging reach of 27 ft (8,220 mm), and provides bucket digging force of 22,860 lbf (10,369 kgf). The HL130LCR excavator is equipped with a standard 0.52-yd3 (0.40-m3) capacity, 30-in- wide (760-mm) 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."
"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 noted. "Like all of our machines, the new HX130LCR excavator comes packed with high-end features."
For example, it includes as standard equipment an 8-inch (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 360⁰-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 feet (5 m) of the machine.
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.
An advanced hydraulic system includes an innovative 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.
