Hyundai Construction Equipment offers wheel loaders, excavators, and compaction rollers to meet the harsh job site demands contractors, material handling operations, and other equipment users will likely encounter, and they’re known for their industry leading standard warranties.

New Hyundai Hi Care Adds To Long-Popular Hi Mate Service

SOMETHING BETTER, MATE!
Hard to believe it could get better!  But it is easy to see why Hyundai has always been a leader in equipment service innovations.  Their new Hi CARE service augments the already crowd-pleasing Hi MATE remote management application in some very significant ways.

Hi CARE IS EVEN SMARTER
Hyundai Hi CARE is a telematics system providing aftermarket support — a feature-rich platform that enables factory, dealer service teams, and fleet managers to provide remote support to their customers.  And with Hi Mate, they’ve considerably beefed up the information available, and connected service capabilities…

Hi Care begins with all the amazing features of the Hi MATE system

  • GPS-Satellite Technology — real time, up-to-date machine location information
  • Operating History — daily reports on engine hours, remaining fuel, and key on/off time
  • Geo-Fencing — enables you to protect equipment from theft with a virtual fence and a (very) real alarm
  • Fuel Level Monitoring — end downtime with advance notice of refueling needs

Hi Care then adds integrated information from several other sources: such as warranty data, oil analysis program results, and additional engine-function reports (see below).  And it’s all managed by Hyundai at the Hi CARE Center, within their corporate offices — using the Cloud, and bringing together data through Hyundai’s collaboration with Cummins.

5 Most Commonly Ignored Wheel Loader and Excavator Maintenance Tips

To do list socialWe like lists. They’re quick reads and the information in them is organized so it’s easy to process and remember. This list of five most commonly ignored wheel loader and excavator maintenance tips is excellent. Consider including these on your contractor list of maintenance tips right away. The consequences of ignoring them can hit you in a number of ways—like downtime, lost productivity, lost revenue and unexpected costs.

 

Wheel Loader Maintenance Tips

  1. Tires and wheels — Checking tire air pressure and missing lug nuts should be part of your wheel loader operator’s daily routine. Check the angle of wheels compared to axles, as excessive lean can be an indication of worn or 
damaged wheel bearings.
  2. Drive shaft —Check the drive shaft U-joint straps and retaining bolts, along with any carrier bearings, for 
misalignment or lack of lubrication. Poorly maintained driveline 
components can lead to costly repairs.
  3. Radiator —Make sure the radiator is clean of buildup to avoid engine 
overheating in warmer months. Any coolant leak or hydraulic/transmission leak near the radiator can lead to excessive buildup of dirt on the radiator fins, which restricts or blocks airflow, causing an overheat condition that can damage the engine and other components.
  4. Transmission oil levels —Check levels regularly and be careful not to 
overfill. Overfilling the transmission can 
actually cause it to overheat during heavy-use conditions.
  5. Bucket  —Make sure to regularly check bucket edges and flip when needed. Not only will this extend the life of the bucket cutting edge, but it will reduce the effort needed as the machine drives into material to fill the bucket.
