Breaking standards in safety

HD Hyundai compact excavators have some of the highest safety standards, offering state-of-the-art features, some of which are unique in the industry.

  • The Auto Safety Lock prevents unintended operation due to the excavator not being controlled solely by the RCV lever.
  • The cabin structure of the HX17A Z is made with integrally welded low-stress, high strength steel to meet ROPS (Roll-Over Protective Structures) and TOPS (Tip-Over Protective Structures).
  • The hydraulic accumulator has a reservoir that reserves a little pressure when the machine's off, enabling you to lower the boom and arm and leave your equipment in a safe place after use.
  • The anti-theft system includes a password-protected ignition. Additionally, there is an optional GPS tracker (Hi-MATE) that allows you to quickly locate the machine in case of theft.
  • A safety valve on the dozer blade cylinder delivers exceptional safety during loading & digging operation
