Hyundai’s HL780-9A loader is built with an electronically controlled, fuel efficient, 351 hp Cummins QSX11.9 Interim Tier 4 engine. The loader has three engine modes, power mode for heavy-duty work, standard mode for general work, and economy mode for light-duty work, giving operators flexibility and allowing for full power or reduced fuel consumption depending on the task. The HL780-9A is also equipped with a fully automatic transmission designed for minimum power loss, improved travel speed, and low noise.

The HL780-9A loader has an operating weight of 66,800 lbs., a bucket capacity of 7.1 cubic yards, and a bucket breakout force of 52,360 lbs.  For jobs such as loading high-sided trucks or hoppers where a higher dump height is needed, this machine is available in an extended reach (XTD) model.

This loader is equipped with a long-life cooling system with relocated cooling fan and radiator designed to resist thermal shock, impulse, and vibration. Operators will also find a redesigned steering cylinder lug and bucket link, made of steel cast, for additional strength and reliability.  The new load sensing hydraulic system with a variable displacement piston pump and closed center main control valve is set to provide operators with efficient hydraulic power and additional energy savings. Other improvements include an enhanced axle to provide better driving over variable ground conditions and self-adjusting brakes, which automatically regulate disc clearance.
