LBX Company has released three new heavy-duty excavators for the North American market. The 210 X4 HD, 250 X4 HD and 300 X4 HD are all purpose-built for challenging applications including demolition, land clearing, heavy-duty excavating, and pipeline work, the company states.
"These Heavy Duty machines give our dealers and customers the ability to buy a machine that has been designed and engineered specifically for tougher applications," said Chris Wise, Market Development Manager at LBX. Wise said the new machines are built with an aggressive stance and use upsized components, full track guards and stronger carrier rollers to protect against rock and debris.
LBX Heavy Duty models arrive from the factory with a high-wide and heavy-duty undercarriage designed with larger components that add durability, strength and performance. Compared to standard LBX machines, the new models offer an 11 to 17 percent wider stance, as well as 40 to 50 percent higher ground clearance, which gives them stability and higher lift capacities to handle rugged work situations. Traveling performance is also improved, with up to a 30 percent increase in drawbar pull.
All of the new models come with standard double bar grousers to give additional traction on rough terrain. In addition, HD attachments feature a high lift bracket for a greater working range and increased lift capacities.
Built from the LBX X4 platform, the Heavy Duty models offer lower operating costs, the company states. All are powered by Isuzu Tier 4 Final engines that deliver exceptional power and low fuel/DEF consumption without the use of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) to maintain. The X4 cab has numerous creature comforts, including a high-resolution 7-inch LCD monitor, excellent visibility through a standard rear-view camera, a high-back air suspension seat with heat and tilt functionality, onboard Bluetooth, Free Swing, and straight travel pedal - all factory equipped. In addition, all models come standard with combination hydraulics and proportional joysticks for added tool versatility and performance.
The machines are backed by a three-year/3,000-hour full machine warranty, a five-year/3,000-hour SPA Emissions Warranty, and three-year/10,000-hour structural warranty. All regular maintenance items are easy to reach. RemoteCARE offers 24/7 remote monitoring, machine health and security features, and is included on each of these models with no subscription charges or fees.
