HD Hyundai Construction Equipment showcased its latest advancements for the recycling industry at ISRI (Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries).

Held in mid-April in Las Vegas, ISRI is the largest event in the scrap and recycling industry. At the show, Hyundai CE showcased its updated HW250AMH material handler, the HX235AL CRD excavator with SAS Auto Dismantler and an HL960AHDXT wheel loader.

“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 Vice President at HD Hyundai Construction Equipment North America. “These machines are designed to handle the rigours of scrap and recycling.”

The recently updated Hyundai HW250AMH wheeled material handler now features Hyundai EPFC (electronic positive flow control), which allows greater control of hydraulic flow to suit operator preferences, specific applications and attachments. Some of the adjustments include:

  • The ability to set up to 10 single-flow and two-way settings
  • Load sensitivity, adjustable between swing and boom and boom and arm speed priority
  • Preferred timing before auto engine shutdown to idle 

Operators can set the preferences and other controls through the 20-cm touchscreen monitor in the cab.

The material handler is also equipped with guarding to protect the machine and operator, and a telescoping cab to provide exceptional 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 27,900 kg when outfitted with a standard SNS grapple and a net power of 170 hp with a Cummins B6.7 diesel engine. 

Powered by a Cummins B6.7 Tier 4 Final and Stage V-compliant diesel engine, the HX235AL CRD 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 ISRI model was outfitted with an SAS automobile dismantler attachment.

The Hyundai HL960AHDXT wheel loader on display was equipped with front and rear cab guard and 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 Cummins B6.7 Tier 4 Final and Stage V-compliant diesel engine, heated and air-ride seat, a hood that tilts back for easy access by the flip of a switch, filters serviceable from the platform, heavy-duty ZF axles with outboard wet breaks and a rear hood design that provides better visibility to the rear of the machine.
