CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 will see Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas share a range of its new, current and future machine models including new compact equipment, its largest wheel loader, and alternative powered excavators this March.

"Hyundai brings to CONEXPO-CON/AGG our strongest and deepest lineup of products, along with exciting, alternative-powered working prototypes and some of the industry's top safety and support systems, plus our team of sales, support and product experts," said Stan Park, president, Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas. "This also marks our first CONEXPO-CON/AGG since the recent Hyundai acquisition of Doosan Infracore, now known as Develon. Visitors will see some of the promising, early results of our collaborative efforts, including one of our new articulated dump truck models."

Award-winning trio of compact excavators

Hyundai will display three new compact excavators, the HX35AZ, HX40A and HX48AZ, that have earned the international Red Dot Design Award which honours the best product and industrial designs from around the world. These compact machines have 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 colour 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 4-way dozer blade.

Return to the skid steer, compact track loader segments

Hyundai has returned to other compact segments as well, and will display for the first time its new HS120V skid steer loader and HT100V compact track loader. These machines are powered by a Hyundai four-cycle, turbocharged, electronic controlled diesel engine that meets Tier 4 Final emissions standards.

On the large end of the product lineup, Hyundai will display five HL wheel loaders, six HX excavators, and two HW wheeled excavators, equipped with a variety of productivity-enhancing attachments and quick-couplers. These will include the HL985A, Hyundai's largest capacity loader, which is equipped with a standard 9-cubic-yard (6.9 cubic metre) bucket. It will be available in the third quarter of 2023.

Alternative excavators show two different future approaches

Hyundai will also show two alternative-powered working prototype excavators at CONEXPO. The Hyundai HW155H is a wheeled excavator powered by a hydrogen-fuelled engine, while the R19E is a two-ton electric-powered compact excavator designed for use indoors and in urban settings.
