Hyundai Earthmovers, Alternative Power Shown at Conexpo 2023

March 9, 2023

Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas (HCEA) will exhibit its excavators and wheel loaders, as well as its new entries in the skid steer and compact track loader markets. It will also display one of its ADTs built in collaboration with Develon. Both operate under the Hyundai Genuine umbrella, an operating arm of Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).

“This…marks our first CONEXPO-CON/AGG since the recent Hyundai acquisition of Doosan Infracore, now known as Develon, said Stan Park, president, in a statement. “Visitors will see some of the promising, early results of our collaborative efforts, including one of our new articulated dump truck models.”

Three new compact excavators—HX35AZ, HX40A, and HX48AZ—will be displayed. They have larger windows for increased visibility, enhanced operator comfort, load-sensing hydraulics (HX40A and HX48AZ) incorporating adjustable auxiliary flow, zero-tailswing (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 4-way dozer blade.

The company is re-entering the skid steer and CTL categories with its HS120V skid steer loader and HT100V compact track loader. The two models are powered by a Hyundai 4HTI4 turbocharged, electronic controlled diesel engine.

Full-sized earthmoving machines include five HL wheel loaders, six HX excavators, and two HW wheeled excavators. Some of the machines will be featured in demonstrations of Hyundai safety, technology, and telematics systems.

Among the wheel loader models is the new Hyundai HL985A, the company’s largest capacity loader with a standard 9-cubic-yard bucket, available in the third quarter.

The exhibit also will include 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 two-ton-class machine is designed for use both indoors and in urban settings.
