New Hyundai HX900L

February 20, 2019

Hyundai Construction Equipment launches the mighty HX900 L Crawler Excavator, available from Molson Equipment.

Hyundai Construction Equipment has recently added a new heavy-line excavator to the HX line-up of machines – the long anticipated HX900 L. This 90-tonne machine replaces the R800LC-9 model and has been developed using market-leading technology to deliver exceptional productivity. It is the second largest Hyundai machine in the stable sitting behind the gargantuan 120 tonnes R1200-9.

Extreme power and performance

At the heart of the HX900 L crawler excavator is the environmentally-friendly Scania DC16 084A – 478 kW (641 hp) water-cooled stage IV compliant engine. The HX900 L model has an operating weight of 88,800 kg (196,000 lbs) and is designed and engineered to handle hard and abrasive materials in challenging working environments. Its robust build is ideally suited for quarry and demolition work and on tough construction sites where a powerful ‘work horse’ is required. This latest HX model can be used with a variety of attachments and in various work modes to maximise its capabilities.

The high rigidity boom and arm has been manufactured following rigorous testing and provides the operator improved stability working with high and heavy loads. With the strengthened boom – and the installation of the highly wear-resistant shims – the HX900 L also offers excellent durability.

HX900 L – designed for harsh environments

The machine has been designed and manufactured with a ‘Full Track Guard’ which helps prevent separation of the track and strengthens durability by protecting the link and roller when working in harsh environments. The X-shaped lower frame guarantees maximum strength and its reinforced belly pans protect the machine’s internal functional parts preventing damage especially when working on rugged terrains. The high-rigidity swing motor has also passed strict resilience verification.

Enhanced fuel economy, advanced hydraulics

Latest engine technologies, a more efficient vertically stacked cooling design, a twin cooling system combining a radiator & Charged Air Cooler (CAC) Fan with a reversible oil cooler fan, and hydraulic system innovations on the Hyundai HX series excavators contribute to an overall fuel efficiency improvement of up to 9 percent compared with previous models.

State-of-the-art IT technologies – with Hyundai the future is now

The 8-inch high resolution cluster with touch screen provides integrated information on diverse operations and control functions to maximize the operator’s convenience. In addition, intuitive control is made possible with the adoption of haptic control. The Audio System has an integrated Bluetooth hands free feature, and a built-in microphone
allowing the operator to take and make calls when in the cab.

Quieter cabin – improved comfort

The new cabin mount has made it possible to reduce cabin vibration and noise significantly and the latest air-conditioning system makes it possible for the operator to adjust the desired temperature through the Air Mix type cooling/heating system and the APTC (Automatic Positive Temperature Coefficient) with increased capacity and can quickly regulate the air flow in the cabin. A deluxe air suspension seat and a sun roof (application permitting) will also make the operator more comfortable working in his machine.

The ergonomically designed joysticks are very responsive and provide easy manoeuvrability which can minimize an operator’s fatigue when working over an extended period of time – especially on challenging job sites.

Ease of maintenance

The fully accessible engine hood is designed to ensure there is sufficient space for servicing and to make sure that daily checks and maintenance are simple.

Like the other HX series excavators, the Hyundai HX900 L configurations are protected by Hyundai’s industry-leading two-year, 3,000-hour standard warranty. Hyundai also includes five years of free access to its Hi-Mate remote management system which provides a variety of remote monitoring and diagnostic services.

Hi-Mate helps you operate machines more efficiently – you can check the difference between total engine hours and actual working hours. See how productive your machines are and plan any required cost saving solutions. Hi-Mate offers working information such as working / idling hours, fuel consumption and rate.
