Hyundai's new HX300L heavy line excavator
Hyundai’s 30tonne HX300L and 26tonne HX260L heavy line excavators will be making their UK debut at Plantworx 2015 in county Leicestershire, England.
The South Korean construction equipment manufacturer’s new machines are equipped with new Cummins engines compliant with the latest Tier4 final and EU Stage IV engine exhaust emissions regulations. Hyundai has opted for a combined solution of EGR and SCR technologies, without the need for an additional DPF. At the same time a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 10% has been achieved – in line with the nature of the machine activity.
The cab on these machines has also been redesigned, not just the front window but also the door which is now easier to open from the inside with an extra handrail. These finishing touches on the inside of the cab are said to provide greater comfort for the operator. The interior of the cabin has been rearranged to provide 10% more space for the operator and better air circulation with the newly developed air conditioning system. The operator has more available storage space and a new instrument panel and controls.
Inside the cab is a new and bigger eight-inch monitor screen which is easier to read, full colour and with more functions, including centralised switches for a number of applications. The main view on the screen is adjustable to the operator’s preference and can be controlled by touch and/or by the new haptic control button, which is a common feature in passenger cars.
There is also Bluetooth connection to make ‘hands free’ calls in the cab. Wifi Direct (Miracast) provides screen mirroring of a smartphone on the cab’s monitor.
