Expanding the A Team

The new HX210AL, 22-tonne crawler excavator forms part of Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe’s (HCEE) new A-series machines. The new machine

The HX220AL, launched in June of last year, is the sister machine to the new HX210AL – both machines have the same power output of 129kW, however, the HX220AL machine, is powered by a Cummins B6.7 stage V6 cylinder engine and offers 880Nm torque (+20% torque) and is also EGR-free. Both machines share an identical undercarriage platform.

The Hyundai HX210AL features similar general specifications to those found in the HX220AL model, but with standard features and pricing that are designed to appeal to rental houses and dealers with high volumes of rental business. “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, We are convinced the HX210AL will become the new standard throughout Europe when it comes to performance and operating experience” said Gert Peeters, Product Specialist Supervisor at HCEE.

At the heart of the HX210AL is a robust Stage V-compliant B4.5 Cummins engine, with an innovative integrated ‘all-in-one’ exhaust aftertreatment system, that reduces both emissions and maintenance requirements. Removing the need for EGR leads to enhanced reliability and simplified maintenance. It also enables the owner to reduce operating costs through better fuel economy and longer service intervals.

The HX210AL delivers more power and performance with 780 Nm of peak torque, which is approximately seven percent more than its predecessor the R210LC-9A, setting a new industry benchmark, delivering the best in class fuel efficiency, while not compromising on power. The new EPFC (Electronic Pump Flow Control) takes the machine to a whole new level of controllability, allowing operators to tailor their machine for the job at hand, ensuring the optimal balance of power and precision.

For increased safety audible and visible alert functions have been included to encourage the operator to wear the seatbelt, reducing the risk of serious accidents for operators using the machines. Another new feature is the auto safety lock which prevents unintentional ignition – when the lock is activated, the excavator is not controlled by the RCV lever.

An Eco guidance is displayed on the machine cluster which indicates ‘inefficient operation’ status to prevent excessive and unnecessary fuel consumption by inadequate working habits.

New smart technologies have been installed to further improve machine productivity and fuel efficiency, in a move away from hydraulically controlled pumps, Hyundai has installed its new EPFC (Electronic Pump Flow Independent Control) system. This computerised system takes individual control of the hydraulic pumps, helping to reduce losses in hydraulic flow and maximising production capacity.

All A-series excavators will incorporate several new service features that have been developed and tested with the aim of improving machine uptime.

Machine diagnostics is an important feature of modern-day excavators. Hyundai’s Hi-MATE is a remote management system that gives access, no matter where the location, to vital service and diagnostic information for Hyundai machines.

ECD (Engine Connected Diagnostics) will support the After Sales technicians and dealers with a diagnostics report (via e-mail, mobile, app or Hi-MATE, HCE’s own telematics system) on the engine performance. This results in an improved engine fault code monitoring and will ensure that the After Sales technicians arrive on-site with the necessary tools to fix the error in one visit.

The report generated by Hi-MATE allows improved fleet management by sending monthly e-mail reports including a summary of the operation and the fuel consumption analysis.
