New Hyundai HX85A midi excavator stars in the power utility class at Bauma 2019

Bauma, Munich, April 8th – 14th 2019, Open-air ground FM.812A
Tessenderlo, Belgium – As an extension of Hyundai’s range of medium-size excavators and – as a response to a strong request from many customers – the all-new HX85A concept machine will be presented to the public in a world premiere at Bauma. This compact excavator in the 8 – 9 ton-class is equipped with a two-piece boom and therefore the ideal machine to work in urban environments. The new HX85A will be available in Europe end of 2019 / beginning of 2020.
HX85A – unveiling the Tiger Eye Design
The HX85A’s rear hood design does not only help to improve the stability and rear visibility of the machine, it also represents the first machine with the new charismatic and exciting “Tiger Eye Design”, which will from now on become the distinctive mark of all new Hyundai Mini and Compact Excavators. The cabin interior is clearly structured and has the latest intuitive commands for the operator to take full control over the job site, without getting tired during a long work day. The operator comfort and convenience is guaranteed by the ergonomic interior design and excellent all-round visibility.
HX85A – comes with Tiger Powers
The 49.9 kW-Yanmar engine delivers 66.9 hp and achieves great efficiency, better fuel economy and less engine noise. The load-sensing hydraulic system offers excellent performance especially when conducting multiple machine movements at the same time.
A brand new 2-piece boom gives the midi-excavator an all-dynamic working range and considerable flexibility. It allows the machine to extend the maximum reach of the arm (7,89 m) as well as working very close to its own tracks. Effective vertical digging becomes natural (max. digging depth of 4,65 m), same as an impressive overloading height. The versatility of the HX85A can still be increased by using the optional 4-way angle blade. Levelling has never been so convenient.

Although the machines’ upper structure is of conventional type, it only has a rear swing radius of 1,60 m (measured from machine center). The overall very compact dimensions of the HX85A give the machine a great stability and at the same time makes it perfect to work in confined spaces, such as urban job sites.
