Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas Inc. R25Z-9A zero swing excavator provides operators with enhanced features and benefits compared to its prior model including a certified Interim Tier IV engine upgrade, improved hydraulics, increased operator comfort and added durability, according to the manufacturer.
The excavator is ideal for tight, confined job sites in residential and urban settings with applications ranging from landscape/hardscaping and light construction to light demolition, road and utility work. The R25Z-9A is part of Hyundai’s new line of 9A series excavators, all of which meet Tier IV Interim standards.
The 5,730 lb. (2,600 kg) R25Z-9 is powered by a 23 hp (17.2 kW) Interim Tier IV, Mitsubishi S3L2 engine. The machine boasts a dig depth of 7 ft. 11 in. (2.4 m), bucket digging force of 4,740 lbf (21.1 kN) and bucket capacity of .09 cu. yds. (.07 cu m). A dozer blade comes standard for light grading, backfilling and for stability while excavating.
The R25Z-9A offers a tail swing radius of 2 ft. 7 in. (.8 m) giving end-users easy, efficient operation on sites where space is limited. The compact size and low weight allows the R25Z-9A to be towable by a pickup.
Hyundai designed the hydraulic system to give the user super-fine touch and top-level controllability, allowing the excavator to be nimble and accurate while operating in congested areas.
The roomy cabin features slim, strong tubing for safety and visibility as well as increased storage.
