What's New in Plant & Equipment
New Hyundai HX480 L Crawler
Hyundai used the UK's Hillhead exhibition to première
the new HX480 L (49,500 kg/199,130 1b) crawler
At the heart of the HX480 L is a Scania DC13 084Ac
4-cycle turbocharged air cooled diesel engine which
complies with the latest emission standards Stage IV for
the reduction of particles and Nox in exhaust gasses
rated at 444 HP (331kW).
One important innovation on the new HX range is
the new and larger 8 inch touchscreen monitor – the
cluster monitor is 30% larger than previous models. It’s
also easy to read and the main view of the screen can
be adjusted according to the preferences of the driver.
It can be controlled via touch control and/or new haptic
New, Exclusive Safety Features
New safety features include Hyundai’s exclusive Around
View Monitoring (AVM) system that gives a 360°-sur-
round virtual operating view and an Intelligent Moving
Object Detection (IMOD) system that senses and warns
the operator when objects come within working distance
of the machine.
The HX series of excavators have a function that turns
the machine off when it enters an ‘idling’ state which
also minimises unnecessary fuel consumption and emis-
sions. Operators can select operating mode and ‘idling’
time depending on work environments which improves
its efficiency even further.
The new machines can offer up to 10
breaker and 10 crusher settings, where both
flow and pressure requirements for the at-
tachments can be saved on the machine.
Cycle time improvement
The HX480 L provides higher productivity
onsite by faster operation and can load
trucks up to 3% faster and levels up to 7%
faster than the 9A-series. In order to achieve
efficient grading, the HX series can apply an
optional boom floating control using arm-in
and arm-out operation only, allowing stable
operation even in high-load work.
