Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas has two new hydraulic excavator models, the HX210A and the compact HX85A, as well as a new material handler, the HW250MH.
Hyundai A-Series excavator models are powered by Cummins Performance Series engines, designed to deliver substantial performance gains from a smaller, lighter power package, while also complying with the international Stage 5 emissions control standard—and delivering “more than a 10-percent increase in power and a nearly 20-percent increase in torque, compared to previous engines, all while using less fuel,” accordint to Hyundai.
The HX210A features general specifications similar to those of the HX220L model, but with standard features and pricing designed to appeal to rental houses and dealers with high volumes of rental business. The HX210A excavator is powered by a 170-horsepower Cummins B4.5 Stage 5/Tier 4-Final engine. The new excavator has a standard operating weight of 48,720 pounds and is equipped with a standard .80-cubic-yard capacity bucket.
Hyundai HX85A excavator
The HX85A is the company’s first compact excavator included among the A Series machines, and the first to be designated an HX model number. The largest of Hyundai’s compact excavator models, the HX85A fills a transitional spot in the company’s overall excavator product line, between the compact and full-sized models.
The compact excavator uses the Yanmar 4TNV98C engine, delivering 65 net horsepower at 2,400 rpm, and has an operating weight of 20,390 pounds with a 12-foot 10-inch two-piece boom and an 8-foot 11-inch arm. Standard bucket capacity (SAE heaped) is 0.33 cubic yards. An optional four-way dozer blade is available.
Hyundai HW250MH material handler
Derived from the company’s wheeled excavator product line, which includes three HW series models and one 9A series compact model, the new Hyundai HW250MH wheeled material handler is designed, says Hyundai, to meet a wide range of on-road and off-road applications.
The HW250MH diverges from the wheeled excavator product line in two fundamental respects, says the company. First, instead of a boom and arm for digging and dumping, the HW250MH features a boom and goose neck designed for lifting and carrying bulk materials and other objects. Second, it features an elevating cab that can rise 8 feet 3 inches above its platform position to provide the operator a better view of the work area.
Key specifications include an operating weight of 57,540 pounds when outfitted with the standard grapple and net power rating of 174 horsepower from the Cummins QSB6.7 engine.
Adding front and rear outriggers and an optional larger grapple increases operating weight to 60,630 pounds.
