marketplace | by Amy Materson R'S ITO K ED IC P OPERATOR FRIENDLY UPGRADES Hyundai Construction Equipment's latest addition to the company's wheel loader line, the HL 730-9A, boasts a number of improvements over the previous model, including a Tier 4 Interim engine upgrade. The 128-horsepower Cummins QSB4.5 engine is fuel efficient, low-noise and is electronically controlled for the optimum fuel-to-air ratio. The self-diagnostic system provides dependability, while the combination of a high pressure common rail system and advanced in-cylinder combustion increases power. The 23,249-pound wheel loader features a 2.5-cubic-yard bucket capacity with a bucket breakout force of 20,170 pounds. Available in an extended reach model for jobs requiring a high dump height, the loader also comes in a tool carrier model that features parallel lift. The HL730-9A's fully automatic transmission boosts travel speed while reducing noise and power loss. Machine power, automatic transmission, shift time and clutch cut-off activation are customizable. Power, standard and economy engine modes provide flexibility, and four transmission shift modes ensure suitability for a range of construction, demolition and recycling and utility applications. A large, redesigned cab with a 17-percent wider windshield has improved features that include fully automatic climate control with increased cooling and heating capacity, tilting, telescoping steering column, adjustable wrist rest, AM/FM radio with MP3 interface, USB input and hands-free Bluetooth. EASY CLEANUP Simplify cleanup jobs with the new walk-behind rotary broom line from SweepEx, which includes ergonomic features for comfortable, easy-to-use operation, and a design that enables working against walls or in open areas. The line includes three models – the SWB-320, with a 32-inch working width and one-speed transmission; the SWB-400, with a 40-inch working width, three-speed transmission with reverse, locking differential, multi-step brush speed and variable down pressure; and the SWB-480, which includes all the features of the SWB-400, but with a 48-inch working width and infinitely variable brush speed. Powered by a Honda engine, the brooms feature a centrally driven brush that allows the unit to work against walls from either side of the machine. Additional features include five angle settings that control the windrow of debris, a broom hood constructed of a durable elastic material that resists damage, intuitive controls, seven-position handle height and folding handlebars. Available options include a debris collector box, leaf collector, protective cover and winter-tread wheel set. Brush kits for special applications such as snow or sensitive surfaces are also available. 14 January 2014 |
