One of the most interesting American manufacturers of construction equipment, LBX Company LLC is again ready to please with its new product. Here is the new Link-Belt LBX 210 X4 crawler excavator. This car belongs to the fourth generation “X4”, which replaces the models of the “X3” generation.

In the world of people who know a lot about high-quality construction equipment, there is an opinion that machines from Link-Belt, like from Volvo, stand aside from most manufacturers. The main reason is high quality and the maximum number of possible functions.
The new Link-Belt LBX 210 X4 excavator has the following main characteristics – the operating weight of the machine is 22,200 kg. (complete with a 650 kg bucket, 3920 kg counterweight, 5.7 m boom, 2.94 m arm, and 800 mm tracks). The Isuzu AR-4HK1X engine acts as a power unit. With a working volume of 5200 cc. the motor has a capacity of 160 hp. This power unit has four cylinders, a high-pressure fuel rail with direct injection common rail, electronic injection control ECM, and in addition, an intercooler and a variable geometry turbine VGT impeller.
The engine is very economical and efficient. The powertrain of the new excavator meets the strictest Final Tier 4 emission standards. This significant figure was achieved thanks to a set of systems: Exhaust Gas Recirculation (CEGR), Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and Catalytic Reduction (SCR).
The extensive sensor package and advanced electronics in the new Link-Belt LBX 210 X4 excavator are responsible for controlling the Isuzu engine and Kawasaki hydraulic pumps. Thanks to the complex interaction, the machine has a shorter cycle time – 9% faster than the previous generation. In addition, the excavator is more economical – by 12%.
