Love’s and Hunter Engineering announced the rollout of Hunter’s new HawkEye XL alignment system at five Love’s locations. The new aligner is designed for speed, durability and ease of use for heavy-, medium-and light-duty vehicles, delivering accurate measurements in four minutes or less, the company noted in a press release.
The centerpiece of the HawkEye XL is a new camera technology with extra-long range and extra-large targets, expanded from the HawkEye Elite alignment system. The lightweight, three-dimensional targets are highly durable, low-maintenance and non-electronic, Hunter Engineering explained. 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 enables the XL to easily align 53-ft. 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. Standard self-centering adaptors fit wheels from 15 to 28 In. Optional QuickGrip adaptors are available in both heavy-duty and passenger versions.
