The new R235LCR-9 excavator features new hydraulic technologies and a multitude of standard features that make it outstanding performer and a great value.

The base machine configuration includes numerous valuable standard features at very a competitive price. The R145LCR-9 has an operating weight of 53,830 lbs and comes equipped with a 18’8” boom and 7’10” arm and a 0.87 yd3 heavy duty bucket. Unlike most manufacturer’s, all Hyundai machines include a bucket within the base machine price. The 9 series goes beyond expectations with regard to standard features. All 9 series excavators include the following in the base machine price: Heated air-ride suspension seat, transparent skylight, CD player – radio with mp3 input and remotely mounted controls, adjustable sunshades, cup holders, hands-free cell phone mode, ultra bright 7” color cluster display, control pattern selector valve, battery cut-off switch, lockable fuel cap, right and left side boom flood lights, HI-mate (remote management system), and Hyundai’s industry-best Total Coverage Warranty.


All 9 Series models feature a new larger, operator’s cab with additional sound proofing insulation and a reinforced structure for a quieter and safer operating experience. 9 Series cabs are truly designed for operators of all shapes and sizes. The R235LCR-9 features a left side control console that rises to an upright position for easy access and exit from the cab. The heated air-ride seat is fully adjustable with infinite custom configurations for the most ergonomic operator preference. A redesigned air conditioning and heating system provides enhanced climate control with 20% more output, improved defrosting and better air circulation. Visibility is significantly enhanced now with a larger one-piece right side window, larger rear window, smaller front window seam and upper transparent skylight. Storage compartments and cup holders are placed in convenient locations for optimal access.


Hyundai invests significant time and resources in product testing and comparative analysis. Real world competitive tests have proven the new 9 series to be one of the most fuel efficient machines on the market today. New engine efficiencies, improved electronic control, and new hydraulic technologies are incorporated in the 9 series to make it one of the most efficient machines on the market.


Hyundai’s 9 series may be extremely efficient, however, power and performance are still top priorities. Hyundai’s R235LCR-9 proved to be an outstanding performer as compared to leading competitors. New tier III Cummins engine technology in the R235LCR-9 provide state-of-the-art electronic control with maximum horsepower and optimal torque. Harnessing the newly improved engine and hydraulic technologies, the new CAPO (Computer Aided Power Optimization) system offers a user friendly interface and customizable machine operation through power mode, work mode and user mode selection. Insuring machine performance and reduced maintenance issues, all Hyundai’s include the HI-mate remote management system which uses GPS – Satellite technology and a user friendly, internet-based system to access critical machine information from anywhere in the world. HI-Mate service is provided free of charge for the first 3 years of ownership.
