The versatile aligner provides accurate measurements in four minutes or less for trucks, buses and more
St. Louis—Hunter’s new Hawkeye XL alignment system is designed for maximum speed, durability and ease of use for a wide range of commercial vehicles. The versatile aligner provides 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.”
The new aligner will be on public display for the first time in the Hunter booth at SEMA in Las Vegas, Oct. 31-Nov. 3.
At the heart of the Hawkeye XL is a new camera technology with long range and large targets, expanded from the Hawkeye Elite alignment system.
The aligner features lightweight, three-dimensional XL targets that are durable, low-maintenance and non-electronic. High-definition cameras capture measurements in a single rolling compensation and displaying live alignment readings for up to three axles at once.
The extended range enables the XL to 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. 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 monitor alignment performance remotely and in real time.
