Visibility features, performance bucket attend Hyundai workhorse

Shown earlier this year at World of Concrete 2019, the 197-hp HL955 wheel loader is outfitted with a GEM Attachments heavy-duty bucket and hydraulic coupler. The GEM GP bucket is designed for use in general purpose and abrasive applications. It features a reinforced shell to extend bucket life; internal liner plate for maximum wear protection; reinforced edge and bolt-on corner protectors to improve pile penetration; and, V-style guard curtailing machine linkage damage from debris spillage. The GEM hydraulic coupler’s standard four-point pick up system streamlines stress loads through the loader arm; creates seamless coupling and uncoupling transitions on uneven terrain; and, supports heavy-duty production demands of two- and three-shift operating schedules.

The HL955 sports a GEM heavy-duty performance bucket and hydraulic coupler, plus Hyundai’s safety-driven All-Around View Monitoring and Intelligent Moving Object Detection systems.

In addition to the performance bucket, the HL955 features the Hyundai AAMV (All-Around View Monitoring) system, whose four cameras provide a 360-degree-surround virtual operating view of the wheel loader’s working environment. Views from the cameras—mounted on the left- and right-side mirrors, front of the cab and rear hood—are displayed individually or in computer-generated composite on the in-cab monitor screen. The AAVM system uses proprietary imaging software to display multiple 3D and 2D views of the operator’s working environment, including a unique bird’s-eye perspective. The system’s Intelligent Moving Object Detection feature senses and warns the operator with onscreen flashing arrows and an alarm when objects come within either of two selectable ranges, 6.5 feet or 22.9 feet, of the machine. The image is integrated into the 7-in. touch screen cluster-monitor in the cab. — Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas, Inc., Norcross, Ga., www.hceamericas.com
