HD Hyundai Showcases Impressive New Heavy Equipment at Hillhead 2024

HD Hyundai Construction Equipment made a significant impact at the Hillhead 2024 quarry exhibition with the introduction of two powerful crawler excavator models and its largest wheel loader to date. On June 25, attendees gathered to witness the unveiling of the new HX1000A L and the HL985A in person, underscoring HD Hyundai’s commitment to innovation in the heavy equipment sector.

HD Hyundai has introduced its largest Stage V crawler excavators: the 80-tonne HX800A L and the 100-tonne HX1000A L. Engineered for peak performance in mines, quarries, and large-scale construction projects, these heavy-duty machines ensure maximum productivity while reducing total cost of ownership (TCO).

Powered by robust Perkins diesel engines, these excavators deliver unparalleled power and fuel efficiency. The HX800A L features the Perkins 2506J engine, generating 400kW (539hp) and 2,468Nm of torque. The HX1000A L is equipped with the Perkins 2806J engine, offering 460kW (629hp) and 2,952Nm of torque. An advanced electronic hydraulic power control system enhances digging efficiency and minimizes fuel consumption, utilizing nine sensors to optimize pump output and flow.

The HX800A L supports 4.25-5.24m³ buckets, while the HX1000A L accommodates 5.4-6.8m³ buckets, making them versatile for various excavation tasks. Both models offer short mass excavation and longer monoboom options, with hydraulic systems designed for precision and efficiency.

Operator-Focused Design

The operator cab of the HX800A L and HX1000A L is designed for comfort and safety, featuring level 2 FOPS protection and advanced vibration damping mounts. Equipped with HD Hyundai’s All-Around View Monitoring (AVM) camera system, operators enjoy a 360° view, enhancing operational safety. The 8” touchscreen monitor provides easy access to control menus, power settings, and auxiliary hydraulic settings, ensuring optimal machine performance.

Advanced Wheel Loader

The new HL985A wheel loader, HD Hyundai’s largest, incorporates the latest Cummins X12 diesel engine, delivering 321kW (430hp) and 2,300Nm of torque. This powerful machine is designed to operate efficiently with a 6.5m³ or 7.0m³ bucket, offering exceptional breakout force and load capacity.

The HL985A’s cab is approximately 10% larger than previous models, providing a quiet, comfortable working environment. The operator benefits from an air-suspended heated seat, a 7” touchscreen for real-time monitoring, and a Bluetooth audio system. The integrated rearview camera and HD Hyundai’s All Around Vision Monitor (AAVM) system further enhance safety and operational efficiency.

Industry-Leading Technology

The HL985A is equipped with a five-speed transmission with a lock-up clutch, achieving speeds up to 40km/h. The Intelligent Clutch Cut Off (ICCO) minimizes power loss and enhances braking efficiency. A hydraulically-locking differential ensures maximum traction during digging and loading operations.

“HD Hyundai’s new HL985A sets a new standard in performance and productivity,” said Product Manager Stefan Schwill. “This machine is ideal for a variety of applications, offering more power for less fuel, making it a cost-effective solution for our customers.”
