Boom time for Hyundai as new version of HX130 LCR launches

HYUNDAI has unveiled a two-piece boom version of its new HX130 LCR excavator.

The 13-tonne machine, which is now available in the UK, is the third compact-radius excavator model in the manufacturer’s HX series and is also available in a second standard configuration, the HX130 LCRD, which includes a dozer blade.

Hyundai said the two-piece boom version allows for a bigger reach, while maintaining the possibilities of a reduced front swing. This option is often requested by firms operating in confined spaces such as road projects, utilities and urban environments. The two-piece boom version comes with the boom articulation mounted to the underside of the standard boom.

The HX130 LCR made its European debut at ScotPlant 2018 on the Young Plant stand. The machine is powered by a 73.6 hp Perkins 854F Tier 4 final/Stage IIIB compliant diesel engine.
