The HX210AL, 22-tonne crawler excavator forms part of Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe’s (HCEE) new A-series machines – a new generation in the Hyundai family – which have been designed to create better conditions for operators and deliver the ultimate ownership experience. Every detail has been carefully fine-tuned to match and exceed modern-day requirements, including improved safety and comfort, higher productivity, maximum uptime, and easy servicing.
The HX220AL is the sister machine to the new HX210AL – both machines have the same power output of 129kW, however, the HX220AL machine, is powered by a Cummins B6.7 stage V6 cylinder engine and offers 880Nm torque (+20% torque) and is also EGR-free.
The Hyundai HX210AL features similar general specifications to those found in the HX220AL, but with standard features and pricing that are designed to appeal to rental houses and dealers with high volumes of rental business. “We’re really excited about this model. We think this is going to be a great entry into that 20-ton class that the market is demanding, We are convinced the HX210AL will become the new standard throughout Europe when it comes to performance and operating experience” said Gert Peeters, Product Specialist Supervisor at HCEE.
At the heart of the HX210AL is a robust Stage V-compliant B4.5 Cummins engine, with an innovative integrated ‘all-in-one’ exhaust aftertreatment system, that reduces both emissions and maintenance requirements. Removing the need for EGR leads to enhanced reliability and simplified maintenance.
The HX210AL delivers more power and performance with 780 Nm of peak torque, which is approximately 7% more than its predecessor the R210LC-9A, setting a new industry benchmark, delivering the best in class fuel efficiency, while not compromising on power. The new EPFC (Electronic Pump Flow Control) takes the machine to a whole new level of controllability, allowing operators to tailor their machine for the job at hand.
Safety and security are always at the top of HCE’s list and the new HX210AL is no exception. The spacious cabin allows excellent visibility, while the optional Advanced Around View Monitoring system (AAVM) gives the operator a 360° clear overview of the surroundings. It also includes Intelligent Moving Object Detection (IMOD) technology that senses and warns you when people or objects come within five metres.
For increased safety audible and visible alert functions have been included to encourage the operator to wear the seatbelt. Another new feature is the auto safety lock which prevents unintentional ignition.
The HX210AL benefits from improved operator controls which include optional MG/MC machine guidance/machine control, which indicates the work status and automatically controls the attachment to assist the driver. The MG displays the position of the bucket tip and assists the operator by the use of positioning guidance. The MC will automatically take over control of the grading with the bucket tip or face and will have an automatic stop control: up, down, forward, and cabin protection.
High-end precision-engineered Kawasaki joysticks feature which allows for precise and ergonomic handling.
New smart technologies have been installed to further improve machine productivity and fuel efficiency, in a move away from hydraulically controlled pumps, Hyundai has installed its new EPFC (Electronic Pump Flow Independent Control) system. This computerised system takes individual control of the hydraulic pumps, helping to reduce losses in hydraulic flow and maximising production capacity.
The A-series comes complete with its fresh new look with the dark grey boom and dipper.
The 8” touch screen monitor groups all machine functionalities and provides the operator with all machine status feedback and a variety of options that can be accessed via settings, which can be selected by the touch screen, or the haptic jog-shuttle rotary controller.
The new engine hood design allows convenient access for regular maintenance checks.
ECD (Engine Connected Diagnostics) will support the After Sales technicians and dealers with a diagnostics report on the engine performance.
