Hyundai Construction Equipment Features New Compacts, Largest Wheel Loader, Alternative Power Prototypes

At CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas displayed a major 31,000-square-foot exhibit featuring a wide range of new, current, and future machine models, plus demos of machine safety and remote management systems.
New Compact Excavators Feature Award-Winning Design
Among new Hyundai models at the show are three compact excavators – the HX35AZ, HX40A, and HX48AZ – that collectively earned a coveted international Red Dot Design Award, honoring the best product and industrial designs from around the globe. 

In addition to complying with Tier 4 Final emissions standards, the three compact excavators feature a distinctive new “Tiger Eye” design, large cabs, larger windows for increased visibility, enhanced operator comfort, load-sensing hydraulics (HX40A and HX48AZ) incorporating adjustable auxiliary flow, zero-tail swing (HX35AZ and HX48AZ), 5-inch full color LCD monitor, new auto safety lock function which prevents unintended use of a machine both from an engine and hydraulic standpoint, and five years’ free use of Hyundai’s exclusive HiMATE telematics system.

All three of the new HX-A series compact excavators will be offered in both canopy or cabin versions along with the choice of standard or four-way dozer blade.

Hyundai Re-Enters Skid Steer, Compact Track Loader Categories
Also at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, Hyundai displayed for the first time its newly available model HS120V skid steer loader and HT100V compact track loader, representing Hyundai’s reentry into these compact equipment categories. The two new Hyundai compact models are powered by a 148-cubic-inch Hyundai 4HTI4 four-cycle, turbocharged, electronic controlled diesel engine. This new Hyundai engine meets Tier 4 Final emissions standards.
New, Largest Wheel Loader Leads Parade of Full Sized Hyundai Machines
Hyundai featured full-sized construction machines such as five Hyundai HL wheel loader models, six Hyundai HX excavator models, and two Hyundai HW wheeled excavator models, equipped with a variety of productivity-enhancing attachments and quick-couplers. Some of these workhorse excavators and wheel loaders were featured in demonstrations of Hyundai safety, technology, and telematics systems. Among the wheel loader models was the new Hyundai HL985A, the company’s largest capacity loader with a standard 9-cubic-yard bucket, available in Q3 2023.
Alternative-Powered Excavator Prototypes Point to Future Direction
The Hyundai exhibit at CONEXPO-CON/AGG also included two alternative-powered, working prototype excavators. The Hyundai HW155H is a prototype wheeled excavator, powered by a hydrogen-fueled engine. The prototype Hyundai R19E is an electric-powered compact excavator. The 2-ton-class machine is designed for use both indoors and in urban settings.
