Hyundai Construction Equipment Introduced H930C Backhoe at ConExpo
Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas, Inc., a leading earth moving and material handling equipment manufacturer, recently displayed their H930C backhoe at ConExpo held March 4-8, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This fast, smooth and easy to control machine is currently available to the Latin America market but will be released in North America towards the end of 2015. With an inherently strong design, this versatile machine is perfect for heavy duty jobs in various applications such as small trenching projects, site preparation and road and utility work.
Hyundai’s H930C backhoe has an operating weight of 14,881 lbs (6,750 kg) and is powered by a reliable and fuel efficient 87 hp (65 kW) Tier 2 Perkins 1104C-44T engine. The engine combines new combustion technology with internal Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), long oil change interval (600 hr) and an air grid heater as a cold start aid. The H930C boasts a loader bucket capacity of 28.3 cubic feet (0.8 cubic meters), a trenching bucket capacity of 6 cubic feet (0.2 cubic meters) and a backhoe dig depth of 14’3” (4,335 mm).
The H930C’s loader boom is integrally welded with a large diameter tube, dual lift and tilt cylinders for maximum strength and power. A strong and rigid loader frame allows for greater lift capacity, improved line of site and overall visibility. The H930C’s four wheel drive system improves mobility and loader performance in ground conditions underfoot and can be activated on the go. The loader attachment is equipped with an automatic return to dig function, designed to reduce loading cycle times. The return to dig function returns the loader to the dig position when the operator pulls the lever.
The H930C’s backhoe boom also has a robust design, perfect for heavy duty applications. The boom allows for excellent visibility into the trench when the operator is digging around buried obstructions such as water mains, sewer pipes and utility lines. Pilot controls offer the operator improved precision when excavating. An optional extendable dipper significantly increases the machine’s versatility.
Heavy duty front and rear axles are designed to withstand the most demanding applications. Outboard, planetary gears improve serviceability while multi wet disc brakes eliminate possible external contamination. The parking brake can easily be activated from within the cab by the push of an electric switch.
Hyundai’s H930C backhoe is available with optional hydraulic performance features such as a load sensing hydraulic system, which matches the engine power to the appropriate hydraulic flow based on the load demand required. An adjustable flow control system option allows the operator to divert any unused hydraulic fluid from the second pump to the hydraulic reservoir.
Lastly, a control pattern selection option allows operators to change from ISO to SAE control patterns simply by pressing a button.
Operators can look forward to a large, spacious cab in the H930C backhoe, which was designed for maximum comfort, safety and low noise. Standard features include a tilting, adjustable steering column, hinged-type side windows for excellent ventilation, conveniently located gauges, switches and levers for quick and easy use and a suspension seat with full adjustment for improved operator ride. One piece rounded front glass and large windows around the cab provide the operator with a full 360 degree range of visibility. An AM/FM radio with MP3 input also contributes to a pleasant working environment. An optional climate control system allows for full heating and defrosting and an optional air conditioning system provides the operator with optimum temperature regardless of the weather.
Service is hassle-free on the H930C backhoe with convenient access to key machine components. A tilt-up hood makes the engine compartment easily accessible. The one-piece hood tilts away for easy ground line access to all critical service and grease points for reduced maintenance time and operator safety. The hydraulic oil sight gauge is installed on the side of the hydraulic tank for quick inspection from ground level. An integrated safety bar and locking pin are an integral part of the loader arm and guarantee operator safety when servicing.
