Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas introduced the HL975 and HL965 wheel loaders, the newest additions to its HL900 series of Tier 4 final-compliant wheel loaders available throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The company also announced at ConExpo-Con/AGG a longer boom on its HL940XT extended reach wheel loader for applications requiring higher lifting and dumping of lighter-weight materials, such as livestock feed. Hyundai also introduced a heavy-duty axle configuration for its HL960 wheel loader – designated as the HL960HD model – intended for use in severe conditions such as landfills, scrap yards and forestry operations.
“The new HL975 wheel loader takes an important place in our wheel loader lineup,” said Juston Thompson, product specialist, Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas. “It gives customers a more affordable alternative to larger loaders like the Hyundai HL980, and provides higher horsepower, larger bucket capacity and improved tipping load than the Hyundai HL970 model.”
Powered by an all-new Cummins QSG12 engine, producing 331 net hp and equipped with a standard 6.3 yd3 bucket, the HL975 wheel loader is well suited for digging and loading in quarries, gravel pits, surface coal mines and other high-production applications, the company said. The HL975 has a standard operating weight of 58,420 lb. and a rated tipping load of 44,090 lb.
