Hyundai construction equipment is manufactured with the highest grade of steel due to Hyundai’s dominance in the steel and shipbuilding industries. Rigid cycle testing, heat testing, vibration testing and shock load testing is conducted in the design and manufacturing process of all new models to insure optimum durability and reliability.
Ed Harseim, Hyundai Construction Equipment North Central District Sales Manager, recently reviewed the Hyundai standard bucket on the HL955XT wheel loader at the 2019 National Cattle and Beef Association show in New Orleans.
“Hyundai also offers standard features like an additional spill guard, also made out of AR400 steel. The design of the additional spill guard provides a protective design to assist in keeping material from impacting the pins and bushing areas where the Z Lever dog bone and lift arms connect to the bucket frame. A great feature which aids in longer pin and bushing life,” says Chad Parker, HCEA Product Specialist and Sales Trainer.
The curved side plates and spill guard on Hyundai’s HARDOX AR400 steel proprietary standard buckets allow as much as 5% more payload per bucket compared to industry-standard buckets.
The Hyundai HL900 series wheel loaders are available in Standard, Extended Reach (XT) and Tool Master (TM) models with standard capacities ranging from 3.0 to 8.1 yd3 buckets. Visit our product information page for more information on the HL955XT Hyundai Loader.
