Creature Comforts

Boost performance with Hyundai’s R60CR-9 compact radius excavator, which has a range of features aimed at improving productivity. The 13,010-pound machine’s Yanmar 4TNV98 engine delivers 56 net horsepower at 2,400 rpm, and includes heavy duty rings, pistons and bearings manufactured from high strength alloys. An advanced hydraulic system ensures smooth, precise control through improved joystick-to-attachment response time, and an arm-in/boom-down hydraulic flow regeneration system enhances function speed without requiring additional engine power. The CAPO (Computer Aided Power Optimization) system controls engine speed, variable pump flow, boom priority function and all other electric-powered functions, as well as offering two operator power mode selections, three work mode selections and two user mode selections. The system simplifies service by displaying service fault codes on the monitor, and additional service information can be downloaded to an external laptop. The R60CR-9 also has an auto-lubrication system as well as easy access to the filters and service areas. The cab has an adjustable seat and armrests, ergonomic joysticks, 360-degree visibility, a large capacity air conditioner and more.
