Visibility features, performance bucket attend Hyundai workhorse

Shown earlier this year at World of Concrete 2019, the 197-hp HL955 wheel loader is outfitted with a GEM Attachments heavy-duty bucket and hydraulic coupler. The GEM GP bucket is designed for use in general purpose and abrasive applications. It features a reinforced shell to extend bucket life; internal liner plate for maximum wear protection; reinforced edge and bolt-on corner protectors to improve pile penetration; and, V-style guard curtailing machine linkage damage from debris spillage. The GEM hydraulic coupler’s standard four-point pick up system streamlines stress loads through the loader arm; creates seamless coupling and uncoupling transitions on uneven terrain; and, supports heavy-duty production demands of two- and three-shift operating schedules.
