Most heavy equipment operators work long, hard, 10 hour days. Keeping your operators happy and comfortable is important to help eliminate downtime. Hyundai’s HX Excavator series offers you an improved operating experience with cab comforts that are better than ever. Hyundai engineers were heavily influenced in the design of the HX excavator cab by the comfort and technology found in modern luxury cars.
“The big thing is the cab has a lot of space. You can’t not like this cab,” Corey Rogers, HCEA Marketing Manager says.
“The HX Series excavator cabs are 13 percent larger than those found on the 9A Series, while the HL wheel loaders are 10 percent larger. The entire structure of the cabs has changed with both being ROPS and FOG 1/2. Beyond the added comfort and safety of these changes, the new cab design gives us more space and an improved flat glass front design on the HX machines for better visibility,” Corey says.
1. Quieter Cab
Additional sound insulation, new viscous spring cab mounts and a quieter electronic fan clutch, reduce in-cab sound levels by as much as 4 dBA as compared to previous models.
2. Auto Engine Shutdown
When the machine idles for a programmable time frame in minutes, the engine will automatically shut down to save the operator on fuel. This is often the case when the operator leaves the cab and forgets to turn off the machine which can burn excessive fuel – another amenity found in the HX series cab.
3. Improved A/C
Cabs now include 9 vents (2 that can be adjusted for face.)
4. Flat Front Upper and Lower Glass
Flat glass for improved visibility eliminates any kind of distortion that you would have with curved glass.
