Hunter to Exhibit New HawkEye XL Aligner at MATS

New commercial alignment system offers speed, versatility and ease of use.

Hunter Engineering announced it will be exhibiting the new HawkEye XL aligner at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) March 21-23 in Louisville, Ky. Frequent live demos will take place in booth no. 22185.

The versatile aligner, designed for maximum speed, durability and ease of use for a wide range of commercial vehicles, provides highly accurate measurements in four minutes or less.

“With our old system, I was doing 15 trucks in one 10-hour day,” said technician Vernon Embree of Prime Inc., who tested the HawkEye XL with their large fleet of newer trucks. “Now, I’ve hit 26 trucks in one day. I would definitely recommend the XL to anybody.”

At the heart of the HawkEye XL is visionary new camera technology with extra-long range and extra-large targets, expanded from the industry-leading HawkEye Elite alignment system.

The aligner features lightweight, three-dimensional XL targets that are highly durable, low-maintenance and non-electronic. Precise high-definition cameras provide extra-long-range sight, capturing measurements in a single rolling compensation and displaying live alignment readings for up to three axles at once.

The extended range delivers extended results, enabling the XL to easily align 53-foot trailers. With a moveable camera beam and portable cabinet, technicians can perform alignments on either the floor or a lift, in any bay.

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. For even more speed and wheel protection, optional Quick Grips are available in both heavy-duty and passenger versions.

Additionally, HawkEye XL connects to the HunterNet 2 customer portal, allowing shop owners to remotely monitor alignment performance in real time.

The XL’s efficiency, versatility and low maintenance combine to yield more uptime and a lower cost of ownership. Misaligned wheels can have a sizeable impact on commercial vehicle fuel cost and tire wear.

“Technicians love the simplicity and ease of use of the HawkEye XL,” said Alan Hagerty, product manager for Hunter. “It’s perfect for heavy-duty shops looking to speed up and supersize their alignment capabilities.”
