Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas released its 9A series of Tier 4 Final-compliant compact excavators. These machines include the mini R17Z-9A, R25Z-9A, R35Z-9A, R55-9A and R60CR-9A models and the midi R80CR-9A model.

“The new Hyundai 9A series compact excavators are all about bringing big power to small spaces,” said Corey Rogers, marketing manager for Hyundai. “Each model features an environmentally friendly engine that provides impressive performance and reduced fuel consumption. Our customers in the building, landscaping, road and bridge, site prep and underground markets in particular will appreciate the hefty power, durability and reliability of these compact machines, along with their ability to work productively in confined spaces.”

Kubota engines power the new Hyundai 9A series models R17Z-9A and R25Z-9A, and Yanmar engines power the R35Z-9A, R55-9A, R60CR-9A and R80CR-9A. Both the Kubota and Yanmar engines provide efficient fuel combustion and reduced noise, Hyndai said. The product line gives contractors a choice of models in each of six popular weight classes: 1.7, 2.5, 3.5, 5.5, 6.0 and 8.2 metric tons.

According to Hyundai, the 9A series machines also include the following features:

  • Spacious, ergonomically designed cabs that deliver reduced noise and increased comfort and visibility;
  • A tilting left-side console, making it easier for the operator to enter and exit the cab;
  • An adjustable suspension seat;
  • Safety features, including optional boom and arm cylinder locks and an optional overload alarm; and
  • A boom swing function designed for efficient work in congested areas, such as near buildings or single lane roadways.
