Hunter Introduces Hawkeye XL Alignment System

It is designed for maximum speed, durability and ease of use for a wide range of commercial vehicles.

Hunter’s introduced its new Hawkeye XL alignment system, which it said is designed for maximum speed, durability and ease of use for a wide range of commercial vehicles.

The new aligner will be on display for the first time in the Hunter booth at SEMA in Las Vegas, Oct. 31-Nov. 3.

The versatile aligner provides highly accurate measurements in four minutes or less, according to Hunter.

“With our old system, I was doing 15 trucks in one 10-hour day,” says 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, Hunter said, 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 monitor alignment performance remotely and in real time.

The XL’s efficiency, versatility and low maintenance combine to yield more uptime and a lower cost of ownership, according to Hunter. 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,” says Hunter Product Manager Alan Hagerty. “It’s perfect for heavy-duty shops looking to speed up and supersize their alignment capabilities.”
