Manufacturer has tooled a guarding package to protect the HL960HD wheel loader from site hazards and ensure key system or component operational integrity. Hinged steel front and rear cabin guards prevent glass damage, while enabling quick access for window cleaning and maintenance. A radiator grille guard protects against hazards such as debris, falling objects and collisions with stationary or moving objects, but also provides quick cooling system and engine compartment access. Guards for exterior lights, the bucket cylinder, axle seals, attachment hoses, engine belly and front-chassis undercarriage complete the package.
The HL960HD is a heavy-duty version of the standard Hyundai HL960 wheel loader. It features as standard equipment a heavy-duty axle configuration plus front and rear axle-oil coolers. The HL960HD’s Tier 4 Final Cummins QSB 6.7 engine produces 222 hp and 1,070 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,500 rpm. Equipped with a standard 4.3-yd. bucket, the HL960HD wheel loader has a standard operating weight of 44,092 lbs. and rated tipping load of 31,691 lbs. An extended reach version is available, designated as HL960HDXT, featuring longer lift arms that provide approximately 16 inches (406 mm) of additional dump height and reach. — Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas, Inc., Norcross, Ga., 678/823-7777; www.hceamericas.com
