“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,” stated Jeff Pate, vice-president of compact equipment sales for HD Hyundai Construction Equipment North America. “These three models build on Hyundai’s decades-long history of leadership in compact excavator design, engineering and manufacturing.”
All three models also come with five years’ free use of Hi MATE, Hyundai’s proprietary remote management system that allows 24/7 global tracking and monitoring of engine, hydraulics, electrical systems and other key components to facilitate preventive maintenance and reduce downtime.
