"Productivity-driving features, such as automatic blade float, hydraulic quick coupler, built-in lifting hook, and guards for boom, arm, and bucket hydraulics come standard on these new machines," described Jeff Pate, Hyundai vice president of compact equipment sales. "These three models build on Hyundai's decades-long history of leadership in compact excavator design, engineering, and manufacturing."
The new Hyundai compact excavator models are covered by the Hyundai standard warranty of three years or 3,000 hours plus a five-year, 10,000-hour structural warranty, with optional Hyundai extended warranties. All three models also come with five years' free use of Hi MATE, Hyundai's proprietary remote management system that allows 24/7 global tracking and monitoring of engine, hydraulics, electrical systems, and other key components to facilitate preventive maintenance and reduce downtime.
