New Kid on the Block – Brand New Hyundai R125LC-9A midi excavator makes world-debut at Hillhead.

The 12 tonne midi short tail swing crawler excavator from Hyundai fits perfectly between the R80LC-9, 8 tonne and the R140LC-9 , 14 tonne machines. This new weight class machine is perfect for the UK market for use in urban areas where space is limited and where manoeuvrability is a problem. The boom is not offset, which makes the machine more compact when operating in ‘tight spots’.
Hyundai_R125LC-9AThe new midi excavator offers arm digging force to 6,140kgf and a bucket digging force of 9,200kgf. The machine has an operating weight of 12,500kg’s and a maximum digging depth of 5,060mm. The R125LC-9A cabin structure has been fitted with stronger but slimmer tubing for added safety and improved visibility. Low-stress, high strength steel is integrally welded to form a stronger, more durable upper and lower frame.
The R125LC-9A is fitted with a Perkins 1204E Engine. The Tier 4 interim/Stage IIIB compliant engine provides maximum power, reliability, optimum fuel economy, and reduced emissions. Electronically controlled fuel injection and diagnostic capabilities add to the engines efficiency and serviceability.
Visitors to Hillhead should look out too for the new R430LC-9A crawler excavator on the Hyundai stand – the new machine has an operating weight of 42,600kg’s offering customers an even greater choice with this new weight class. The R430LC-9A is the ideal machine for bulk earthmoving, large civil engineering and quarrying work. You can watch it in action here
