By Mike Hayes29 March 2022

Hyundai Construction Equipment is launching two new Stage V-compliant excavators, adding to its A-Series range.

Hyundai CE’s new HX160A L and HX180A L midweight excavators

The HX160A L and HX180A L are powered by Cummins diesel engines, which promise a 5% improvement in fuel consumption, as well as a 60% reduction in particulate matter emissions without the need for exhaust gas recirculation.

Hyundai says the 16 and 18 tonne machines will deliver a 13% increase in power, plus 27% more torque than their predecessors.

The company highlights the addition of its electric pump independent control (EPIC) system, which allows both new machines to harness the extra power of the Cummins engine. Both machines promise a 115kW gross power output, with 712Nm peak torque at 1200rpm.

Operator benefits

A new Lifting Mode feature is standard with the new models, which improves both fine control and lift capability, while Fine Swing Control is an option, making the movement of the boom smoother.

For operators, the A-Series cab has 13% more internal space. Upgraded technology also features heavily, with a 200mm touchscreen, which can be controlled through an automotive-style jog/dial module.

Both models also feature a Miracast feature, which allows operators to smartphone functions through the cab’s screen.

Hyundai says drivers can operate their phones hands-free, listen to music directly from their smartphone and use a number of internet-based applications through the Miracast system.

The new models also promise reduced service costs, with engine oil and oil filter intervals extended to 800 hours, and fuel filter intervals doubled to 1,000 hours.
