Two-pass Hyundai HL985A loader teams with the HA30 articulated dump truck.

The HL985A Hyundai wheel loader is the company’s largest-capacity loader at 9.1 cubic yards. The loader will fill a Hyundai HA30 articulated dump truck in two passes.

The Hyundai HL985A is powered by a 430-horsepower Cummins X12 Performance Series engine. Heavy-duty ZF axles with wet outboard brakes and with coolers are standard equipment on the HL985, which is powered by a ZF 5-speed transmission.

Smart Power Mode reduces fuel consumption by adjusting the engine speed in heavy-duty applications.

Eco Gauge function enables the operator to monitor fuel consumption in real time or to review historical data. Displayed values include engine torque, fuel efficiency, average, and total fuel consumed. Hourly and daily fuel consumption also is viewable through the menu.

The Electro-Hydraulic (EH) control lever facilitates easy operation of attachments with integrated, third-spool proportional auxiliary control. Other important operator comfort and safety features include heated air-ride seat; cab heater and air conditioner; rearview camera; electronically adjustable, heated, and foldable rearview mirrors; AM/FM radio with Bluetooth; and a 7-inch multi-function monitor and control panel.

All-Around View Monitoring (AAVM) system includes four cameras, providing 360-degree views, and incorporates motion detection for enhanced operator and job site safety.
