Countless construction machines work on loading and feeding the crushers on the 15,000 m² treatment site in Unterschleissheim and at further sites belonging to the group. Four Hyundai wheel loaders have been in use since 2010. At the start of 2020, the latest Hyundai wheel loader was brought into use - a 19.5 tonne, 168 kW HL960A equipped with a 7 m3 high-lift tipping bucket.

Johann Hartmeier Jun., whose responsibilities include the fleet of twenty construction and transfer loading machines and 80 trucks, opted for the modern Stage V machine from Hyundai because of its power, fuel consumption and ergonomics. The superb, rapid service from Hyundai Construction Equipment service partner Fischer & Schweiger was another decisive factor in the purchase. Features include solid rubber tyres which make for easy working in often sharp-edged recycling material. The high-lift tipping bucket is required for loading high-edged and walking floor semitrailers. The tipping height of the high-lift bucket is 4,200 mm.

The machine is in use around 2,500 operating hours/year, and permanent drivers ensure excellent availability. Hyundai authorised dealer Fischer & Schweiger GmbH from Zusmarshausen near Augsburg provides customer care and services all wheel loaders and some transfer loaders.

In view of the sustained strong demand for large wheel loaders in the European market, HCEE introduced the new A-series with Cummins engines (Stage V) at the Bauma 2019 show. The 19-tonne HL960A is powered by a Cummins QSB6.7 Stage V (168 kW). The new A-series wheel loaders from HCE Europe offer a broad range of performance features and functions. HCE's product development division is proud to present a wealth of leading technological improvements. These are all directly connected with improved fuel efficiency, increased safety, longer uptimes and better fleet management.
