Louisville Ky.– HD Hyundai Construction Equipment North America announced the immediate North American availability of three new models in its HX-A series of compact hydraulic excavators. The Hyundai HX35AZ, HX40A and HX48AZ excavators are featured in the company’s exhibit (Booth K341) at The Utility Expo at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

All three new models received their first public showing earlier this year at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023.

“The Utility Expo provides the perfect venue for announcing that these three new compact excavators are now available from Hyundai dealers across the United States and Canada,” said Jeff Pate, VP of Compact Equipment Sales, HD Hyundai Construction Equipment North America. “Utility contractors – and others – can see firsthand why we are calling these Hyundai machines ‘the new standard in compact excavators.’ 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. These three models build on Hyundai’s decades-long history of leadership in compact excavator design, engineering and manufacturing.”

All three new models feature low-emission engines that are Tier 4 Final compliant. The Hyundai HX35AZ excavator is powered by a Kubota D1703 diesel engine with a net power rating of 24.8 hp (18.2 kW), while the HX40A and HX48AZ feature Yanmar 4TNV88C engines, rated at 37.4 hp (27.5 kW).

The HX35AZ has an operating weight of 8,300 lb (3,765 kg), dig depth of 9 ft 8 in (2.95 m), and bucket breakout force of 7,081 lb (3,212 kg).
