New Hyundai excavator set for ScotPlant debut

The R430LC-9A has several innovative features and will be on display for the first time at ScotPlant.

THE latest addition to Hyundai’s Robex excavator range will be shown for the first time in the UK at ScotPlant.

The R430LC-9A has an operating weight of 42,600kg and is ideal for bulk earthmoving, large civil engineering and quarrying work.
At the heart of the R430LC-9A is the low emission and low noise, Cummins QSL9 Tier 4 Interim/Stage IIIB engine, which offers a rated power output of 310hp (231kw). This engine features the Xtra-High Pressure Injection (XPI) fuel system, which delivers a constant stream of pressurised fuel across all engine rpm speeds, providing cleaner combustion and improved engine response.
This engine is designed to provide the lowest cost of operation in its class, offering customers the most economical and quiet operating machine with exceptional power and performance. Hyundai say that the EGR engine is ‘hassle-free’ and Adblue free.
The R430LC-9A features Hyundai’s Computer Aided Power Optimization (CAPO) system. The operator can set their own preferences for boom or swing priority, power mode selection, including three working modes, and optional work tool settings at the touch of a button.
Optimum precision has been achieved in the redesigning of the hydraulic system. Improved pump flow control reduces flow when controls are not being used to minimize fuel consumption. Thanks to improved hydraulic valves, precision-designed variable piston pumps, fine-touch pilot controls, and enhanced travel functions, the operator has super fine control of the machine during all operations.
The R430LC-9A features the legendary Hyundai -9A cab, which has been well received by operators around the world.
The cab amenities include a transparent polycarbonate glass sun roof, with integrated easy to control sun visor.
The R430LC-9A will be on display on the Young Plant & Equipment Sales stand from the 25th–26th April at the Ingliston showground, Edinburgh.
