Hyundai Construction Equipment, Norcross, Ga., has introduced the newest offering in its line of Robex 210 crawler excavators the R210LC-9. It’s part of Hyundai’s new 9 Series of construction equipment that the company says provides operators many improved features and benefits including optimized safety, enhanced technology and operator comfort, reduced operating costs and an extended life of machine components and wear parts.
The R210LC-9 is a mid-size crawler excavator, powered by a reliable Cummins QSB6.7 water-cooled, 4-cycle, low emission diesel engine with 143 horsepower at 1900 rpm. At 49,390 pounds, the excavator has a dig depth of 19 feet, 1 inch and bucket digging force of 29,320 foot pounds making it ideal for mid-size excavating projects, road and utility work and demolition, says the company.
New steel tube construction on the cab has increased its safety, protection and durability. Inside-the-cab improvements include more room due to an increased cab size, better visibility, reduced sound, improved storage and better climate control.
Operators of the R210LC-9 will also benefit from a reconfiguration and consolidation of controls and easier access to critical switches. For operator convenience, controls for volume, channel or song seek, mute, buttons for hands free answering phone calls, a USB port, and jacks for headphones and phone connections are all located together on the right side of the console. AM/FM Radio/MP3 player all come standard.
The R210LC-9 also comes standard with Hyundai’s 7 inch wide color LCD screen cluster with toggle switch. The cluster allows the operator to select their personal machine preferences as well as power and work mode selection, self diagnostics, maintenance check lists and machine security making the excavators more versatile and operators more productive. Hyundai offers as standard, rear-view camera which is viewed from the cluster display.
In addition to the cluster, the R210LC-9 comes standard with Hi-mate, Hyundai's proprietary remote management system that provides operators and dealer service personnel 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 by promoting preventative maintenance and reducing machine downtime.
Hyundai’s 9-series excavators offer bushings designed for extended lube intervals of 250 hours – and polymer shims to resist wear and reduce noise. You also get extended-life hydraulic filters (1,000 hours), long-life hydraulic oil (5,000 hours) and more efficient cooling systems and integrated preheating systems. These help extend service intervals thus reducing operating costs and machine down time.
