Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas has introduced the Hyundai HL975 wheel loader, the newest addition to its HL900series of Tier 4 Final-compliant wheel loaders available throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Powered by an all new Cummins QSG12 engine, producing 331 net hp (247 kW), and equipped with a standard 6.3 yd3 (4.8 m3) 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 HL975 has a standard operating weight of 58,420 lb (26,500 kg) and a rated tipping load of 44,090 lb (20,000 kg). An extended reach version is available, designated as HL975XT that feature Hyundai’s newly redesigned longer lift arms that provide approximately 14 inches (355 mm) of additional dump height and reach.
The HL975 offers a standard drivetrain featuring ZF axles and transmissions. Hyundai buckets are constructed of wear-resistant AR400 steel and feature the company's exclusive design that incorporates curved side plates and an enhanced spill guard to carry up to 5 percent more material than typical buckets.
