Hyundai expands heavy construction range with two articulated dump trucks

Hyundai Construction Equipment has introduced two articulated dump truck models to its growing line of heavy construction and earthmoving equipment.

The HA30A and HA45A have rated payloads of 28 tonnes and 41 tonnes respectively, providing an ideal haul truck match for Hyundai’s larger crawler excavators and wheeled loaders.

Aimed at the popular 30 and 45-tonne sectors, the HA30A and HA45A are built around a full-time six-wheel drive concept, with front and rear limited slip differentials and a longitudinal differential that can be manually locked, for maximum drive and traction on difficult terrain.

According to the company, the new trucks have a compact chassis design, “to aid manoeuvrability”, with a sloping rear frame and a front-mounted differential integrated into the ZF transmission, “allowing for a shorter front frame section.”

“This results in the smallest turning radius in the sector and outstanding stability. Self-levelling hydro-gas suspension on the front axle further supports a comfortable ride, delivering maximum tractability in tough ground conditions,” Hyundai CE added.

The HA30A and HA45A are equipped with a full hydraulic retarder, combined with an electronic engine brake as standard. This supports the oil-cooled wet disc brakes to achieve an extended service lifetime of up to 15,000 hours. Among other features, the trucks are supplied with a gradient metre, with flip-over protection and a Body Over Centre of Gravity function, to assist drivers when tipping and operating on rough terrain.

The two ADTs are the first visible sign of the new cooperation between Hyundai Construction Equipment Europe (HCEE) and Hyundai Doosan Infracore (HDI), since the purchase of the Doosan business last year by Hyundai Heavy Industries Group. HCEE and HDI now operate as separate divisions within Hyundai Genuine, maintaining their independent management and dealer network structures.
