Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas recently revealed plans for its participation in CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023, with a major exhibit featuring a wide range of new, current and future machine models, plus demos of machine safety and remote management systems.
The company’s 31,000-ft2 (2,900-m2) exhibit will be located in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth W42501. The triennial construction equipment exposition — the biggest in North America — runs from March 14 through 18.
“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.”
New Compact Excavators Feature Award-Winning Design
Among new Hyundai models at the show are three compact excavators — the HX35AZ, HX40A and HX48AZ — that collectively earned a coveted international Red Dot Design Award, honoring the best product and industrial designs from around the globe.
In addition to complying with Tier 4 Final emissions standards, the three compact excavators feature 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-tailswing (HX35AZ and HX48AZ), 5-in. 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.
Hyundai Re-Enters Skid Steer/Compact Track Loader Markets
Also at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, Hyundai will display for the first time its newly available model HS120V skid steer loader and HT100V compact track loader, representing Hyundai’s reentry into these compact equipment categories. The two new Hyundai compact models are powered by a 148-in3 (2,435-cm3) Hyundai 4HTI4 four-cycle, turbocharged, electronic controlled diesel engine. This new Hyundai engine meets Tier 4 Final emissions standards.
