Pictured rolling into Tilbury docks is Hyundai’s latest crawler excavator, the HX130LCR, designed for roadwork, railway right of way, bridge areas and urban sites.
It offers reduced machine length and added manoeuvrability with a shorter tail swing profile that aids work in confined areas. Its operating weight is 12,700kg.
The HX series has an eco-friendly, high-performance engine which ensures both excellent fuel efficiency and high power. It is equipped with a diesel particulate filter, while engine power is gross 55kW (73.6hp) at 2,200rpm.
Viewable by the driver in his cab is the Hyundai-exclusive All-Around View Monitoring, an optional system that provides a 360° virtual operating view. This includes the Intelligent Moving Object Detection system that senses and warns the operator when objects come within 5m of the machine.
