Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas has introduced a seventh model in its 9A series of Tier 4 Final-compliant compact excavators. The new R30Z-9AK is a three-ton-class model that features a zero-tail swing design for optimum maneuverability in confined work spaces.
The Hyundai R30Z-9AK excavator is powered by a Kubota engine delivering 23.2hp (17.3 kW). It’s maximum digging depth is 8ft 2 in (2 490 mm), and its maximum digging reach is 15 ft 3 in (4 648) mm. Bucket breakout force is 4,520 lbf (20.1 kN). Configured with a canopy, the R30Z-9AK has an operating weight of 6,380 lb (2 894 kg). When specified with an optional cab, the machine’s operating weight is 6,625 lb (3 005 kg). Standard bucket capacity is .10 yd3 (.076 m3).
Standard features include thumb brackets, large dozer blades, hydraulic quick-couplers for attachments, and hydraulics-ready auxiliary piping.
The spacious, ergonomically designed cab reduces noise and increases comfort and visibility. A tilting left-side console makes it easier for the operator to enter and exit the cab, and the left and right control levers are located for convenient access. The optional lever-pattern-change valve, positioned for easy access, allows joystick control to be changed from SAE to ISO pattern, depending on operator preference. Button selections are provided for auto idle mode, max power mode and travel speed. An adjustable suspension seat and plenty of space help reduce operator stress and fatigue.
Hyundai's 9A series compact excavators include bushings designed for long-life lube intervals, wear-resistant and noise-reducing polymer shims, and integrated preheating systems which extend service intervals and reduce machine downtime. Serviceability enhancements include wide-opening engine hoods, centralized grease fittings and easy-change plastic air cleaners.
The Hyundai R30Z-9AK is protected by Hyundai’s industry-leading three-year, 3,000-hour full-machine standard warranty and five-year, 10,000-hour structural warranty. An optional program, Hyundai Extend, offers a customized extended warranty with the industry’s longest-term coverage.
