Product Spotlight: The Hyundai HX160L Excavator
THE HYUNDAI HX160L: A TRUE PRODUCTIVITY MACHINE... The design philosophy for this Hyundai is maximum output with minimum effort. Both the machine and the operator are able to get more done, with less fuel and less fatigue. It's a perfect recipe for daily & long-term productivity. The new HX160L is a great example from Hyundai’s latest, HX series excavators, which feature major advances in power, efficiency, safety, and comfort. Let's take a closer look at all of these key features...
POWER AND EFFICIENCY The Hyundai HX series features eco-friendly, high-performance engines that meet Tier 4 Final emission requirements. For the HX160L, the power-plant is a 137 gross hp, Perkins 1204F water-cooled, 4 cylinder (in line) 4 cycle direct injection, turbocharged diesel. Hydraulic advancements and electronic improvements throughout the machine improve overall fuel efficiency by as much as 10% compared to Hyundai's previous series.
The HX series also offers variable power control with three power modes to ensure the highest efficiency for required performance in a variety of operating environments.
P (power mode) maximizes speed and power for heavy work.
S (standard mode) optimizes performance and fuel efficiency for general work.
E (economy mode) improves control and efficiency for light work.
With even faster cycle speeds than previous models, the HX 160L further extends the productivity advantages of this new series.
STATE-OF-THE ART HYDRAULICS: The HX series gives operator independent control of two pumps: enabling optimized flow-rate settings according to the type of attachment being used. There are 10 breaker types and 10 crusher types, enabling operators to get precisely the power they need for a wide array of jobs. How precise? Dig this video of a Hyundai HX160L paired with a SAS Fork, doing surgery on expired cars. Now that looks like FUN!
SUPER-DURABLE AND SUPER-SAFE Like all Hyundai construction equipment, the HX 160L is manufactured with the highest grade of steel. ...Hey, Hyundai’s dominance in the steel and shipbuilding industries pays serious dividends! Their knowledge does too: rigid cycle testing, heat testing, vibration and shock-load testing is conducted in the design and manufacturing process for all their models. Hyundai's emphasis on quality components — right down to the steel — means less downtime, reduced operating cost, and improved productivity.
AAVM (ALL AROUND VIEW MONITORING): The Hyundai-exclusive AAVM video camera system provides the operator a 360-degree field of view on the monitor. With just the touch of a button, operators can see all the working angles of their machine. And if that's not enough: the system also includes IMOD (Intelligent Moving Object Detection) — alerting operators to the presence of people or objects. For excavators, the maximum range of operation for the AAVM is 16.5 feet (5 meters.) Who knows? Some fine day, these machines won't even need to BEEP BEEP BEEP whenever they move!
For fleet owners, HI MATE is Hyundai's proprietary telematics-enabled management system that provides 24/7 access, no matter your location, to service and diagnostic information for all Hyundai mid- to large excavators. Hi MATE is offered for FREE for the first 5 YEARS of your ownership of the HX 160-L.
OPERATOR COMFORT & CONVENIENCE A key feature of the new operator’s cab for the HX series excavators is an intuitive clustering of electronic controls and monitoring functions, resulting in improved operator accuracy and efficiency. Check out this video of the 8-inch interactive touchscreen color display which allows the operator to check and manage most features of machine operation, switches and diagnostics. The audio system includes an AM/FM radio, a USB-based MP3 player, an integrated Bluetooth hands-free feature and a built-in microphone to allow for phone calls while at work and in transit. To keep that luxury-car feeling going, a haptic remote control guides the operator through menu selections using vibrations and pulses, and enables control of the accelerator, air conditioner, and all functions within the cluster. But nothing's more important than the comfort of the deluxe operator's seat: with air suspension, selectable heat and adjustable arm rests and control consoles, it's easily the best seat in the house!
THE HX 160L CAN DO THE JOB — AND WE HAVE YOURS! Whether you're doing surgery on parked cars, loading crates onto ships, building roads, lifting railroad ties, or digging foundations, the HX 160L will help you do it faster, with less fuel, and with greater safety and comfort. It's the very latest in a long-line of innovative new excavators from Hyundai. We'd love to answer any questions you have, or show you around one of these machines. Just give us a ring or stop by at any Martin Implement location, and we will be happy to put you in that super-deluxe seat!
