Link-Belt Excavator Company recently introduced its all-new X4S series of excavators. Built on the award-winning X4 series, the Link-Belt 170 X4S, 190 X4S, 220 X4S, 260 X4S, and 300 X4S feature design improvements aimed at increasing durability, performance, serviceability, and operator comfort.
New features on all models include Custom Flow Balance, customizable joystick function buttons, new work modes, and Trimble-ready components. Additional options include reversible engine fans and Precision Grade on select models. Dynamic Stability Control; payload, height and depth alarms, and even a digital level, are all standard equipment on the Premium 220 X4S machine.
The 190 X4S excavator features a 120-horsepower Yanmar Tier 4 final-compliant engine. Boasting an upsized undercarriage compared to its little sibling, the 170 X4S, the 190 X4S offers superior lift performance, improved stability, and productivity.
“The new X4S line, with a focus on performance and innovative features, delivers up to
17 per cent increase in engine HP and 19 per cent improved fuel economy over its predecessor,” said Adam Woods, general manager of innovation and product portfolio strategies at LBX.
The machines also feature WAVES, the company’s Wide Angle Visual Enhancement System that offers a 270-degree birds-eye view to improve site awareness.
Cabs offers ergonomics and comfort, with a high-back seat with air, tilt and heat features as standard equipment. Adjustable pivoting armrests, headrests, seat height, and lumbar support are designed to provide operators with comfort on long workdays.
