At Conexpo-CON/AGG 2020 Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas introduced two wheel loaders models (the HL930A and HL975CVT) and excavators, as a part of the new A-Series, all of which feature new generation Cummins Performance Series diesel engines that achieve compliance with international Stage 5 emissions-control standards.
Three new A-Series models – the Hyundai HL930A wheel loader, HX210A crawler excavator, and HX85A compact excavator – made their debuts at this year’s show, along with several upgraded models that join the A-Series lineup.
The new Hyundai HX210A features similar general specifications to those found in the HX220L model, but with standard features and pricing designed to appeal to rental houses and dealers with high volumes of the rental business.
The HX210A excavator is powered by a 170-hp (127-kW) Cummins B4.5 Stage 5/Tier 4 Final diesel engine. The excavator has a standard operating weight of 48,720 lbs (22,100 kg). The HX210A excavator is equipped with a standard .80-yd3 (1.3-m3) capacity bucket.
A series a result of Hyundai, Cummins collaboration
The new A-Series wheel loaders reflect the benefits of Hyundai’s collaboration with Cummins. For example, they include Engine-Connected Diagnostics (ECD) that service technicians can use to remotely diagnose and report on engine problems, and help assure the proper approach to resolving the problems.
“Hyundai is pleased to collaborate with Cummins in the introduction of our A Series wheel loaders and excavators,” said Stan Park, Vice President of Distribution and Marketing, Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas. “The Cummins Performance Series engines, combined with the engineering and product design expertise of Hyundai, will enable our customers to achieve substantial performance gains from a smaller, lighter power package. Customers will experience more than a 10-percent increase in power and a nearly 20-percent increase in torque compared to previous engines, all while using less fuel.”
While Stage 5 guidelines do not apply in the United States, an important feature of the A-Series machines is the use of Cummins Performance Series engines that comply with the international Stage 5 emissions-control standard. Combined with the engineering and product design expertise of Hyundai, these engines will deliver substantial performance gains from a smaller, lighter power package. Customers will experience more than a 10-percent increase in power and a nearly 20-percent increase in torque compared to previous engines, all while using less fuel.
The Cummins Performance Series engines integrate the newest after treatment system – the Single Module – with leading combustion and air-handling technology to be Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR)-free. These engines offer a simpler installation with lower installed costs.
The Single Module system combines a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), and urea-dosing technologies in one unit, providing up to a 50-percent reduction in envelope size and a 30-percent reduction in weight compared with earlier models. Cummins Performance Series engines are capable of removing emissions almost entirely by passive regeneration, with no impact on equipment operation and without an operator interface or intervention.
The HL960A has an operating weight of 42,330 lb (19,200 kg), standard bucket capacity of 4.3 yd3 (3.3 m3), and achieves 222 net hp (166 net kW) through a Cummins B6.7 Performance Series diesel engine equipped with certified Stage 5 emissions control.
