Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas debuted two new articulated dump truck (ADT) models, marking its entry into the ADT market.

The new HA30 and HA45 ADTs target the 30- and 45-ton segments, Hyundai says. The trucks are now available for order through Hyundai’s North American dealers.

“Hyundai is excited to enter the ADT market to better serve our customers in aggregates and infrastructure construction,” says Mike Ross, senior vice president of construction equipment sales, parts and service at Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas. “Our new ADT models are the first collaborative results of the combined design, engineering and manufacturing expertise of Hyundai Construction Equipment and Hyundai Doosan Infracore.”

Last year, Hyundai Heavy Industries Group purchased the Doosan business, which now operates – along with Hyundai Construction Equipment – as a separate division within Hyundai Genuine. While maintaining their respective management and dealer network structures, Hyundai says the two divisions plan further integration in R&D, design, engineering, procurement and manufacturing.

About the new models

The HA30 and HA45, with respective payloads of 28 and 41 tons, are designed to provide a haul truck match for Hyundai’s larger crawler excavators and wheeled loaders. Hyundai says the two models are made primarily for high-volume earthmoving projects, highway construction, and mine and quarry operations

Additionally, Hyundai says the HA30 and HA45 are built around a full-time, six-wheel drive concept with front and rear limited-slip differentials and a longitudinal differential that can be manually locked for maximum drive and traction on difficult terrain.

The trucks have a compact chassis design, Hyundai adds, to aid maneuverability. They also feature a sloping rear frame and a front-mounted differential integrated into the ZF transmission, allowing for a shorter front-frame section.
