Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas introduced its R60CR-9A compact radius excavator.
First showcased at ConExpo in Las Vegas, the machine weighs 13,010 pounds (5,900 kg) and is equipped with a 63 horsepower (47.0 kW), Tier 4 Final Yanmar 4TNV98C engine.
The R60CR-9A features a bucket breakout force of 9,190 pounds (40.9 kN), a maximum dig depth of 11 feet 9 inches (3,570 mm) and a .24 cubic yard (.19 cubic meter) bucket capacity. The tail swing radius on the R60CR-9A is 3.7 feet (1,080 mm).
A hydraulic system includes optimized matching between the joystick and the main control valve. An arm flow summation system provides energy savings, reduced cavitation and increased speed. For safety and to avoid boom drift, the R60CR-9A is equipped with an integrated boom holding system. The R60CR-9A’s boom swing function allows the boom to be offset left or right within an operating range.
The machine includes a hydraulic damper in the travel pedal and a hydraulically lubricated swing reducer with a leak-free grease chamber.
The model’s cabin has been fitted with stronger but slimmer tubing for improved visibility and safety. The upper and lower frame are made from welded low-stress, high-strength steel.
The cabin also features an upper roof glass for better visibility and a roller shade to reduce sun glare. A Bluetooth hands-free cell phone function is available for safe phone use. A suspension seat, adjustable arm rests, accessible control levers, storage compartments and an automatic air conditioning system are also provided.
The machine comes standard with an LED cluster, which allows the operator to select personal machine preferences. The monitor displays engine rpm, engine oil temperature, water temperature and information for all electronic devices. Button selections are provided for auto idle mode, max power mode and travel speed. A security feature is also provided to prevent the machine from starting without a proper password.
