NORCROSS, Ga.,– Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas announced a variety of improvements to its 3-1/2-ton class Hyundai R35Z-9A compact excavator, designed to provide users a competitive edge in performance, convenience, serviceability and safety. One of seven 9A series models, the Hyundai R35Z-9A compact excavator was introduced to the market in 2015. It features a zero-tail swing design for maneuverability in confined work spaces.

"The new improvements to our popular R35Z-9A are the result of valuable input from our VOC (Voice of the Customer) meeting conducted last year with North American dealers and customers,” said Corey Rogers, marketing manager, Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas. “Hyundai conducts frequent competitive comparison tests and annual VOC meetings with dealers and customers to improve current machine models and contribute to the development of new products. Hyundai greatly values our customers’ ideas and feedback, and we strive to make our products responsive to their needs."

New standard features include a Werk Brau-compatible thumb bracket, a diverter valve for easy switching between a thumb or attachment, proportional control levers with two-way piping, pin-grabber style dual-locking quick coupler and O/C piping, enhanced bucket design with lifting-eye and two-piece tooth design for easy replacement, increased curve profile on dozer blade for better grade and cutting ability, an easily replaceable cutting edge to the dozer blade, a wider opening engine compartment, and a durable centered boom LED work light for improved jobsite illumination. A new optional feature is the 4-way angle dozer blade.

Other enhancements. “The R35Z-9A new improvements combine to make this bullet-proof designed machine one of the best compact excavators on the market,” Rogers said. “This machine embodies all the characteristics that deliver what we call ‘the Hyundai Edge’ in performance, convenience, serviceability and safety.”

The R35Z-9A model features a fuel efficient Yanmar engine producing 23.7 hp (17.7 kW), large cab with air conditioning, suspension seat and fold-up travel pedals for enhanced floor space. The machine’s boom swing capability allows the operator to offset the boom 75 degrees to the left and 50 degrees to the right, facilitating close work alongside foundations and other structures, especially in congested areas.

Maximum digging depth is 10 ft 3 in (3 135 mm). Bucket breakout force is 6,900 lbf (3 130 kgf). Standard bucket capacity is 0.14 yd3 (0.11 m3).
