Love’s invests in latest Hunter alignment innovation for commercial vehicles
Love’s and Hunter Engineering are pleased to announce the rollout of Hunter’s new HawkEye® XL alignment system at five Love’s locations.
The new aligner is designed for maximum speed, durability and ease of use for heavy-duty, medium-duty and light-duty vehicles, delivering accurate measurements in four minutes or less.
“Love’s is excited to further our partnership with Hunter on the new HawkEye® XL alignment technology,” said Eric Daniels, Vice President of Total Truck Care for Love’s. “Hunter has proven to be a leader in heavy-duty alignment with industry-leading training and support. The HawkEye® XL aligner will allow Love’s to continue to grow offerings to serve our customers’ needs.”
“Hunter is proud to work with Love’s on this exciting initiative,” said Chip Hiemenz, Hunter Vice President, Key Accounts. “We believe the HawkEye® XL technology will give Love’s another option in providing customers a world-class experience and we look forward to supporting them in this endeavor.”
The centerpiece 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 lightweight, three-dimensional targets 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 expanded range delivers expanded 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 aligner’s capabilities extend from Class 8 down to passenger vehicles.
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 QuickGrip® adaptors are available in both heavy-duty and passenger versions.
“Love’s is known for providing quick and comprehensive service, and the XL dovetails perfectly,” said Alan Hagerty, Hunter Product Manager. “It’s fast, very easy to use and very efficient at getting large vehicles in and out. It’s a natural fit.”
