Hyundai’s latest addition to the Robex excavator range, the R430LC-9A, has an operating weight of 42,600 kg and is suitable for bulk earthmoving, large civil engineering and quarrying work, this new machine is fitted with the latest Tier 4 interim engine technology, which meets the latest emissions standards.
At the heart of the R430LC-9A is the low emission and low noise, Cummins QSL9 Tier 4 Interim/Stage IIIB engine, which offers a rated power output of 231 kW (310 hp). This engine features the Xtra-High Pressure Injection (XPI) fuel system that delivers a constant stream of pressurized fuel across all engine rpm speeds, providing cleaner combustion and improved engine response. This engine is designed to provide the lowest cost of operation in its class, offering customers the most economical and quiet operating machine with exceptional power and performance.
Like existing models in the -9A series, 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. Thanks to improved hydraulic valves, precision-designed variable piston pumps, fine-touch pilot controls, and enhanced travel functions, the operator has super fine control of the machine during all operations.
A new in-cab monitor features a 7 inch wide LCD colour screen, which features a touch screen facility in addition to the toggle switch, which allows the operator to select his personal machine preferences, including the aforementioned work modes, self-diagnostics, maintenance check lists and start-up machine security codes. In addition, this screen is also used to select and view the rear view camera, further enhancing the machines excellent all round visibility. Video functions are also available, enabling the operator to view footage via the USB port.
Hyundai -9A series excavators (12t and above) also provide 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.
These new machines 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 on the machine 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.
