Hunter Engineering Co. has introduced its new Hawkeye XL alignment system for commercial vehicles.
According to Hunter officials, the aligner provides measurements in four minutes or less and will be on display at the Hunter booth at the Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas, Nev. on Oct. 31 – Nov. 3.
“With our old system, I was doing 15 trucks in one 10-hour day,” says Vernon Embree, technician of Prime Inc., who tested the Hawkeye XL with its fleet of newer trucks.
“Now I’ve hit 26 trucks in one day. I would definitely recommend the XL to anybody.”
The aligner features new camera technology with expansion from the Hawkeye Elite alignment system. It also features three-dimensional XL targets that are non-electric; high-definition cameras that display live alignment readings; an extended range that allows the system to align with 53-foot trailers; and more.
The XL offers optional fully integrated alignment with Hunter’s L494HD alignment rack, or FIA-compatible turnplate kits to streamline processes. Standard self-centering adaptors fit wheels from 15- to 28-inches.
The Hawkeye XL also connects to the HunterNet 2 customer portal.
“Technicians love the simplicity and ease of the Hawkeye XL,” says Alan Hagerty, product manager, for Hunter.
“It’s perfect for heavy-duty shops looking to speed up and supersize their alignment capabilities.”
