Hyundai HX220L excavator loads a truck.

Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas has launched the HX series of Tier 4-Final-compliant hydraulic excavators in the U.S. and Canada.

The first models, which range from 22 to 52 metric tons and include the HX220L, HX260L, HX300L, HX330L, HX380L, HX480L and HX520L, are reaching dealers now. Smaller models and compact-radius models will follow in 2016, the company says.

Among standard features is an 8-inch interactive, adjustable, touchscreen cluster-monitor with haptic remote control for all major functions, easier operator accessibility and better ergonomics. The haptic remote control delivers reactive, tactile sensations using vibrations and pulses to guide the operator through menu selections. The cab also features a more powerful climate-control system with improved air efficiency and temperature response, 15-percent more capacity, improved defrost capacity and more airflow mode selections.

 

New control features and improvements include a Boom Float mode for improved grading control, Fine Swing mode for improved load control when swinging, up to 13-percent faster cycle speeds than the previous Hyundai 9A series excavators, IPC (Intelligent Power Control) for computer-aided power optimization based on load demand, and Eco Breaker mode for selectable pump flow and improved fuel consumption when working with hydraulic breakers and other attachments.

Models HX220L, HX260L, HX300L, HX330L and HX380L are powered by Cummins engines, and the larger HX480L and HX520L models are powered by Scania engines. Cummins and Scania engine technologies both achieve Tier 4-Final emissions compliance through a combination of SCR and DOC systems using DEF.

Operators at IUOE Local 150 give their take on the HX220L excavator.
