Hyundai HL740-9 Wheel Loader

HL740-9A_ResizedThe HL740-9A joins Hyundai’s new lineup of 9A series wheel loaders and will provide operators with many improvements from previous models including a certified Interim Tier 4 engine upgrade, improved durability and enhanced operator comfort.

Hyundai’s HL740-9A wheel loader has been engineered for maximum power and performance.  This model is built with a fuel efficient, low noise 156 hp Cummins Tier 4 Interim & 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 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  model is designed to allow the operator 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.

The wheel loader has an operating weight of 28,000 lbs, a 3.0 cubic yard bucket capacity and a bucket breakout force of 24,800 lbs, making this machine suitable for any application.  It 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 is also available in a tool carrier (TM) model which offers parallel lift and is ideal for tasks like pallet handling and pipe laying.

Hyundai’s HL740-9A has many other features including an advanced, multimedia functional, 5.7” 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 is also functional as a rearview backup camera providing improved safety and convenience on any jobsite.
