Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) introduced that it has developed a new HL975 wheel loader with Cummins engine, which boasts low fuel consumption and high efficiency, and it will start selling in October.

High horsepower engine and heavy-duty, high-capacity axles have been mounted to achieve the high durability of the HL975 wheel loader and to make it more suitable for handling aggregate. By applying a high-capacity bucket whose standard dimension is 4.8m3 and the special dimension of 5.2m3 (optional) exclusively for aggregates, the working efficiency of HL975 increases by as much as 25% compared with the HL970. In particular, the fuel consumption of HL975 is reduced by about 4.7% per hour, and the productivity per 1 liter of fuel has been improved by around 6%.

Additionally, the functions of eco-gauge and momentary fuel efficiency display enable the driver to monitor the energy economy of the wheel loader, with the eco-accelerator pedal preventing unnecessary fuel consumption.

The Soft End Stop function relieves shock caused by the boom and end part of the bucket so that the driver feels as little shock as possible during operation. The high-resolution touch screen monitor provides an integrated display for not only monitoring but also operating various apparatuses.

Furthermore, the ergonomic operating room has an air suspension seat with a integrated joystick and centralized arrangement of switches for improved convenience of operation.

“The new wheel loader is a medium-sized model between the existing HL970 and HL980 equipment. It has been developed to correspond to the 25-ton dump trucks that are manufactured to be larger than the existing ones. Especially, we expect the new model to draw enthusiastic responses from customers,” a source at HHI said.
