Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas Inc. HL740-9A joins Hyundai’s new lineup of 9A series wheel loaders, all of which provide power and productivity across a wide range of applications including construction, demolition and recycling, utility and agriculture. This new model will provide operators with many improvements from previous models including a certified Interim Tier IV engine upgrade, improved durability and enhanced operator comfort, according to the manufacturer.
Hyundai’s HL740-9A wheel loader was engineered for maximum power and performance. This model is built with a fuel efficient, low noise 156 hp (116 kW) Cummins Tier IV Interim and EU Stage IIIB QSB6.7 engine. The eco-friendly engine offers advanced electronic controls and a self-diagnostic system, both of which lead to reliable performance. The combination of a high pressure common rail system and an advanced in-cylinder combustion technology results in increased power, improved transient response and reduced fuel consumption.
The HL740-9A loader has a fully automatic transmission designed for maximum durability, minimum power loss, improved travel speed and low noise. An improved clutch control and minimized shifting shock when travelling contribute to a smoother ride. The HL740-9A model is designed to allow the operator to customize the machine’s engine power, automatic transmission, shift time and clutch cut-off activation based on the job condition and personal preference. Three engine power modes are available for ultimate flexibility: power, standard and economy, as well as four transmission power shift modes: manual, light, normal and heavy, making this model well-suited for any working condition. Convenient rotary type switches allow for easy adjustment of engine power modes, transmission power shift modes and clutch cut-off modes.
Hyundai’s HL740-9A wheel loader has an operating weight of 28,000 lbs. (12,700 kg), a 3.0 cu. yd. (2.3 cu m) bucket capacity and a bucket breakout force of 24,800 lbs, making this machine suitable for any application. The HL740-9A is available in an extended reach (XTD) model for jobs where a higher dump height is a necessity such as loading high-sided trucks and hoppers, stock piling material and for agricultural applications including as stocking feed lots on dairy farms. The loader also is available in a tool carrier model which offers parallel lift and is ideal for tasks like pallet handling and pipe laying.
In addition to power and performance, Hyundai’s HL740-9A offers enhanced operator comfort. A larger, redesigned cab provides users with a comfortable, convenient and spacious work space making the toughest of jobs a bit more enjoyable. The newly designed loader also provides operators with a wider field view due to a rounded front windshield that is 17 percent wider than previous models, along with larger door glass. This model carries many improved convenience features including increased cooling and heating capacity with fully automatic climate control system, a tilting and telescopic steering column, an adjustable wrist rest for reduced operating stress, multiple storage compartments, an AM/FM radio with MP3 interface, a USB input and hands-free Bluetooth. An improved ladder with 20 degree incline and large, deep tread, aluminum cast steps also is provided for safer entering and exiting of the cab.
Hyundai’s HL740-9A has many amenities including an advanced, multimedia functional, 5.7 in. touch screen LCD color monitor with adjustable swivel, which allows the user to easily and efficiently control the machine. Boom kick-out and bucket position can be adjusted through overhead switches while viewing the settings through the screen. An integrated load weighing system, also viewable through the monitor, contributes to improved work efficiency and a self-diagnostic system with an active display of engine, hydraulic system, transmission and electrical component information, make the machine more versatile and the operator more productive. The LCD monitor also is functional as a rearview backup camera providing improved safety and convenience on any job site.
With a focus on maximizing profitability and improving durability, Hyundai has designed the HL740-9A model with many enhanced service features, efficiencies and longer life components. The HL740-9A loader provides easy access to key servicing components making routine maintenance hassle-free. A tilting transmission and hydraulic oil coolers swing open for easy access and the rear door can be open to more than 70 degrees. Conveniently located transmission oil site gauges make checking fluid levels fast and efficient. This Hyundai loader also provides users with critical ground level access to common service points, filters and sight gauges as well as an extended life hydraulic filter and oil for reduced operating costs.
As with all of Hyundai’s 9 series equipment, the HL740-9A features the Hi-mate remote management system, which allows operators and dealer service personnel to access a machine’s vital service and diagnostic information from anywhere with internet access. Hi-mate users can remotely monitor daily reports outlining a machine’s location, working hours, fuel consumption and any periodical maintenance needed, reducing downtime and saving the owner time and money.
