Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas’ new guarding package for its HL960HD wheel loader protects the machine from jobsite hazards found in various wheel loader applications to ensure the operational integrity of key systems and components.

Hinged steel front and rear cabin guards protect glass from damage, while enabling quick access to the windows for cleaning and maintenance. A radiator grille guard protects against hazards such as debris, falling objects, and collisions with stationary or moving objects, but also provides quick access to the cooling system and engine compartment. Guards for exterior lights, the bucket cylinder, axle seals, attachment hoses, engine belly, and front-chassis undercarriage complete the package.

The Hyundai HL960HD wheel loader is a heavy-duty version of the standard HL960 wheel loader. It features as standard equipment a heavy-duty axle configuration plus front and rear axle-oil coolers.

The HL960HD wheel loader is powered by a Tier 4 Final Cummins QSB 6.7 engine, producing 222 net hp and 1,070 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,500 rpm. Equipped with a standard 4.3 cubic-yard bucket, the HL960HD wheel loader has a standard operating weight of 44,092 lbs. and a rated tipping load of 31,691 lbs.
