A working prototype of the new Hyundai R18E electric-powered compact excavator was among the highlights for Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas at Conexpo 2020.

The two-ton compact machine is designed for use indoors or in urban settings and offers power and productivity equivalent to the diesel-powered Hyundai R17Z-9A compact excavator while being 60 per cent more efficient.

The machine can operate for eight hours on a full charge and can be fully recharged in five hours. The R18E produces no on-site carbon emissions and operates at just 70.1 decibels.
