Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas has added the R260-9A crawler excavator to its line of 9A series excavators.

A 178 horsepower Cummins Tier 4 Interim QSB6.7 engine powers the excavator, which has a 56,880-pound operating weight, a 35,270-pound-foot bucket digging force and a 23-foot maximum dig-depth.

The machine has multiple fuel-saving features. Cummins Direct Flow air filter delivers improved fuel economy versus previous models, while the variable speed fan clutch, two-stage auto decel system and economy mode conserve fuel. The excavator’s three engine modes–Power, Standard and Economy–reduce fuel consumption by adjusting to the appropriate fuel consumption for the task at hand.

The R260-9A features a redesigned hydraulic system, designed to provide improved controllability. Also included is Hyundai’s Hi-mate Remote management System, which gives operators and dealers access to the machine’s service and diagnostic information–like location, fuel consumption, necessary maintenance and more–via an internet connection.

The enlarged cabin includes an upper skylight, a large one-piece right-side glass, scratch- and fade-proof safety glass windows on all sides, a closeable sunshade and a reduced window seam, which are all designed to improve visibility.

Inside the cab, the seat is integrated with the console, and the seat, console and armrest are adjustable. The cab comes standard with heated suspension and ergonomic, height-adjustable joysticks. Other cab features include a climate control system and an advanced audio system with USB player, AM/FM stereo, and MP3 capabilities.

An optional Smart Key System for keyless ignition is also available.
