New -9A series excavator model from Hyundai
South Korean manufacturer fills the gap with new Interim Tier 4 R430LC-9A excavator
HYUNDAI have extended their range of -9A series excavators with the addition of the R430LC-9A model (operating weight of 42,600kg), which slots in between the existing R380LC-9A and R480LC-9A machines, offering customers an even greater choice with this new weight class.
Designed for bulk earthmoving, large civil engineering projects and quarrying activities, the new excavator model is fitted with the latest Tier 4 Interim engine to meet the latest emissions standards.
The machine is powered by a Tier 4 Interim/Stage IIIB-compliant Cummins QSL9 engine, offering a rated power output of 310hp (231kW). The engine features an Xtra- High Pressure Injection (XPI) fuel system, which delivers a constant stream of pressurized fuel across all engine rev/min speeds, providing cleaner combustion and improve engine response.
The Cummins engines has been designed to provide the lowest cost of operation in its class, giving customers the most economical and quiet operating machine with power and performance. Furthermore, new innovations such as a variable speed remote fan, two-stage auto decel system and new economy mode, help to conserve fuel and reduce the machine’s impact on the environment.
As with previous -9A series models, the R430LC-9A features Hyundai’s computer aided power optimization (CAPO) system. Using this system, the operator can set their own preferences for boom or swing priority, power mode selection, including three working modes – P (Power), S (Standard) and E (Economy) – and optional work tool settings at the touch of a button, to suit the task in hand. Optimum precision has been achieved in the redesigning of the hydraulic system.
Improved pump flow control reduces flow when controls are not being used to minimize fuel consumption. The operator has fine control of the machine during operation, thanks to improved hydraulic valves, precision-designed variable piston pumps, fine-touch pilot controls and enhanced travel functions
Inside the R430LC-9A excavator, the cab features a new advanced 7in wide LCD colour monitor with touch screen controls. The screen is also used to select and view a rear view camera, further enhancing the machine’s all-round visibility.
Hyundai -9A series excavator models (12 tonne and above) are equipped with a smart key system (with anti-theft transponder) as standard. This allows the operator to start the engine by the push of a starter button without inserting a key in the ignition.
The machine also feature Hyundai’s HI-MATE telematics remote-management system, which provides operators and dealer service personnel direct access to vital service and diagnostic information from any computer with Internet access.
Users can pinpoint machine location using digital mapping and set machine work boundaries, reducing the need for multiple service calls. HI-MATE saves time and money for the owner and dealer by promoting preventative maintenance and reducing machine downtime.
