Hyundai Construction Equipment is entering the 20-ton size class of excavator with the introduction of the HX210A, one of two new machines added to the company’s A series of machines.
The new Hyundai HX210A, as well as its new A series wheel loaders, are powered by Cummins Performance Series engines that deliver substantial performance gains from a smaller, lighter power package, while also complying with the international Stage 5 emissions control standard.
The new Hyundai HX210A delivers a more than 10 per cent increase in power and a nearly 20 per cent increase in torque compared to previous machines, all while using less fuel.
“We’re really excited about this model. We think this is going to be a great entry into that 20-ton class that the market is demanding,” said Juston Thompson, national account specialist with Hyundai.
The Hyundai HX210A features similar general specifications to those found in the HX220L model, but with standard features and pricing that are designed to appeal to rental houses and dealers with high volumes of rental business.
“It fits into a different product class than what we had with the 220. It’s lighter, it has extremely efficient performance and its more fuel efficient,” Thompson said.
The HX210A excavator is powered by a 4-cylinder, 170 hp Cummins B4.5 Stage 5/Tier 4 Final diesel engine. The excavator has a standard operating weight of 22,100 kg, and it is equipped with a standard 1.3 cubic metre-capacity bucket.
“Demand is growing for this weight class, especially among equipment rental houses and dealers that have a high volume of rental business,” said Stan Park, vice president of distribution and marketing at Hyundai Construction.
“The HX210A meets this need with a set of specifications and standard equipment features that make it an economical, yet productive, machine.”
The HX210A is also equipped with Hyundai’s All-Around View Monitoring (AAVM) which provides the operator with a 360-degree view around the excavator on the cab’s monitor.
As well, the system provides a view of all working angles of the machine with the touch of a button. Part of the AAVM system includes IMOD (Intelligent Moving Object Detection), which alerts the operator to the presence of people or objects. For excavators, the maximum range of operation is 5 metres.
The Hyundai HX85A
The new Hyundai HX85A model is the company’s first compact excavator included in the A Series machines, and the first to be designated with an HX model number.
The largest of Hyundai’s compact excavator models, the HX85A fills a transitional spot in its overall excavator product line between the compact and full-sized models.
The Hyundai HX85A compact excavator is powered by a Yanmar 4TNV98C engine delivering 65 net hp at 2,400 rpm.
The HX85A excavator has an operating weight of 9,250 kg including the 3.9 metre, two-piece boom. The standard bucket capacity is 0.25 cubic metres. An optional four-way dozer blade makes backfilling and grading more efficient and precise.
