Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas’ R35Z-9 compact excavator has an operating weight of 8,050 lbs., and is powered by a 26.5 hp Tier 4 Certified Yanmar 3TNV88 engine. The R35Z-9 boasts a dig depth of 10 feet, 4 inches; a bucket digging force of 7,050 lbf; and bucket capacity of 3.78 cubic feet. The R35Z-9 offers a tail-swing radius of 2 feet, 10 inches (870 mm), allowing for efficient operation on sites where space is limited.

Hyundai designed the R35Z-9’s hydraulic system to give the user super-fine touch and top-level controllability. Optimized matching between the joystick and main control valve improves control and smoothness of operation. An arm flow summation system provides energy savings, reduced cavitation, and increased speed, according to the company. To improve safety and avoid boom drift, the R35Z-9 is equipped with an integrated boom holding system.

The R35Z-9 features a fully customizable operator’s station, allowing end-users to set their operating preferences to meet their individual needs. Some of these customizable options include an easily adjustable seat and wrist rest settings, foldable pedals that provide increased floor space, and ergonomically located left and right control levers for convenient access. The monitoring system of the R35Z-9 provides the operator with machine status information including engine oil pressure, battery charge, engine coolant temperature, and a fuel gauge.

Reliability is improved and maintenance costs are reduced on the R35Z-9 compact excavator. The addition of lubricated bushings has extended lube intervals throughout the attachment to 250 hours and polymer shims resist wear and reduce noise. Extended-life hydraulic filters (1,000 hours) and long-life hydraulic oil (5,000 hours) are also provided to maximize service life and reduce downtime. 

Doors, covers, and hoods built for complete open access make regular maintenance easier. A centralized lubrication bank and easy change air cleaner are also available for faster and easier servicing.
