HD Hyundai Construction Equipment North America will present at ISRI2024  Convention and Exposition. Hyundai will showcase the updated HW250AMH material handler, an HL960AHDXT wheel loader, and the HX235ALcrd excavator with an SAS auto dismantler.

"We've seen increasing interest in specially outfitted machines like the Hyundai material handler, heavy-duty wheel loader and excavator with auto dismantler that we are featuring in our exhibit this year," said Mike Ross, senior VP at HD Hyundai Construction Equipment North America. "These machines are designed to handle the rigours of scrap and recycling."

Updated Hyundai material handler features

The recently updated Hyundai HW250AMH wheeled material handler now features Hyundai's EPFC (electronic positive flow control), which allows greater control of hydraulic flow work modes to suit operator preferences, specific applications, and attachments. Some of the adjustments include the ability to set up to 10 each single-flow and two-way settings; load sensitivity, adjustable between swing and boom priority, and boom and arm speed priority; and the preferred timing before auto engine shutdown to idle. Operators can set these and other controls through the eight-inch touchscreen monitor in the cab.

The material handler is also equipped with guarding to protect the machine and operator along with a telescoping cabin to provide ideal visibility when loading and unloading trucks and containers in scrap and waste yards. In addition to handling scrap and recycling work, the Hyundai material handler is suitable for other on/off-road applications, including forestry and marine terminals.

Key specs include an operating weight of 61,510 pounds (27,900 kilograms) when outfitted with a standard SNS grapple and a net power of 170 horsepower (127 kW) with a Cummins B6.7 diesel engine. The Hyundai material handler on display at ISRI sports a GRYB Model #B4T16-075SC four-tine orange-peel grapple.

The Hyundai HL960AHDxt wheel loader on display will be equipped with front and rear cab guards, a rear grille guard, and other light guarding that will help protect operators moving sharp, heavy, and abrasive materials. The heavy-duty wheel loader comes standard with a powerful Cummins B6.7 Tier 4 Final and Stage V-compliant diesel engine, a heated and air-ride seat, a hood that tilts back for easy access by the flip of a switch, filters serviceable from the platform, easy-to-service and repair ZF axles with outboard wet breaks, and a rear hood design that provides better visibility to the rear of the machine.

Powered by a Cummins B6.7 Tier 4 Final and Stage V-compliant diesel engine, the HX235ALcrd incorporates HX A-series features like improved visibility and handling, EPFC hydraulic system, automatic engine shutdown, auto safety lock, and eco gauge lifting mode to help improve productivity. The floor model will be outfitted with an SAS automobile dismantler attachment.
