KATY, TEXAS — LiuGong North America’s compact 9035EZTS excavator is its first zero tail-swing model in the 3.5 metric ton class. The rig is an ideal tool for utilities work, residential construction and all other applications benefiting from a mini-excavator’s compact size, ease of transportation and lower cost of operation.
With an operating weight of 8,510 pounds, the 9035EZTS tows easily to and from worksites behind a standard pickup truck. Its 0.14-cubic-yard bucket with 5 foot 7 inch arm reaches digging depths of 11 feet 3 inches. Maximum ground level reach is 18 feet 9 inches.
Model features include a mechanical quick-coupler connecting system that allows operators to easily swap between bucket and attachments.
Zero tail swing means the rig stays completely within its own 6-foot-11-inch by 5-foot-7-inch footprint, allowing operators to work right up against buildings, trees and other barriers. It can also save contractors the expense of shutting down a lane of traffic while working on or along roads and highways.
The 9035EZTS achieved its zero tail-swing design without compromising cab room or serviceability from its engine and hydraulics placement. It features a full-sized, ROPS-certified cab available in both open and fully enclosed, climate-controlled options.
All 9035EZTS machines feature systems and components that are immediately familiar to the North American market, ensuring high part availability and coast-to-coast serviceability. The 24.4 hp, Yanmar Tier 4 Final engine provides the optimum combination of ample power with low fuel consumption, offering high productivity with low operating cost. Robust Kawasaki hydraulics ensure reliable performance and minimize the risk of unscheduled maintenance downtime.
A strong, straight blade with blade float comes standard on all 9035EZTS excavators. The blade provides operators a built-in tool for ground finishing and smoothing over backfilled trenches. It also lowers the rig’s center-of-gravity for secure travel over uneven terrain, and operators can set the blade for additional stability during excavation.
Rubber tracks and compact size with low, widely distributed ground pressure greatly reduce the risk of marring a newly paved surface or sensitive ground. Steel tracks are available as an option.
Curb appeal is an often-overlooked added value. The strikingly attractive design of the LiuGong 9035EZTS ensures that current clients and potential customers always see operators looking their best on any jobsite.
