New WinAlign HD alignment system
increases fleet management efficiency!

Hunter's new WinAlign HD alignment system allows fleet operators to perform truck and trailer alignments without unhooking the trailer from the tractor, maximizing workflow and reducing setup time. WinAlign HD also allows technicians to perform trailer alignments using a simple kingpin adaptor. The option to align trailers with or without the tractor simplifies the alignment schedule for heavy-duty fleets, and increases overall fleet productivity.

Hunter's new DSP700T heavy-duty sensors drastically reduce setup time by using Hunter's exclusive roll-forward compensation to compensate all six sensors at once without the need to jack each axle. Six DSP700T heavy-duty sensors communicate with Hunter's WinAlign HD system to capture and produce live, simultaneous measurements on three axles in just four minutes. DSP700T sensors are accurate to a range of 600 inches (1,524 centimeters) to cover all truck, bus and trailer lengths.

Complementary, on-site demonstrations are available. Customers in North America may schedule demonstrations by contacting their local Hunter Heavy Duty Representative at www.hunter.com/demos-hd



Introducing the world's fastest and
most accurate wheel aligner for multi-axle trucks!

Hunter Heavy Duty customers can now diagnose tire wear conditions in 1/3 of the time. New technology from Hunter Engineering provides accurate, 3-axle wheel alignment readings in just 4 minutes. Hunter's previous generation aligner took approximately 12 minutes.

Hunter's improved Winalign HD Alignment System uses four or six revolutionary DSP700T heavy-duty alignment sensors. DSP700T sensors use exclusive roll-forward compensation to compensate all sensors at once without the need to jack each axle. The new system decreases setup time and equipment wear through a completely reengineered setup process.

DSP700T sensors are cordless and are compensated at the same time by Hunter's unique pusher. Hunter's DSP700T sensors are accurate to a range of 600 inches (1,524 centimeters) to cover all truck, bus and trailer lengths. When equipped with the timesaving capabilities of Hunter's optional Fully Integrated Alignment Turnplate Kit (FIA), the system produces full vehicle measurements in as little as 4 minutes.

Hunter sensors are engineered to be shop-tough and protect impact-prone areas. Each sensor is protected by a lightweight, durable and rubberized shell. Hunter's self-centering wheel adaptors offer high-versatility for trucks and buses, which often have low- hanging bumpers or air dams, and fit steel and aluminum wheels ranging from 15 to 28 inches (38 to 71 centimeters) in diameter.

The new WinAlign HD Alignment software allows Hunter customers to align trailers without unhooking the power unit. The system can also align trailers without a power unit using an optional kingpin adaptor.

New WinAlign HD Alignment Systems also feature new, copyrighted adjustment videos to guide technicians through the alignment procedure. Just-in-time videos help train new technicians and make sure each wheel alignment is completed properly.

Complementary, on-site demonstrations are available. Customers in North America may schedule demonstrations by contacting their local Hunter Heavy Duty Representative at www.hunter.com/demos

New! Fully Integrated Alignment for Heavy-Duty Vehicles

Hunter now offers Fully Integrated Alignment (FIA) for heavy-duty vehicles. Hunter's patented FIA process streamlines the alignment process by eliminating trips around the vehicle.

Hunter's heavy-duty PowerSlide turnplates automatically lock and unlock at appropriate times, saving technicians time and hassle. They also reduce maintenance cost by relocking automatically after each alignment, so technicians will not drive off the turnplates with lock pins out.

Hunter's heavy-duty PowerSlide turnplates can operate on the floor or with an alignment rack. All PowerSlide turnplates feature built-in turnplate bridges for Hunter's exclusive rolling compensation.

Complementary, on-site demonstrations are available. Customers in North America may schedule demonstrations by contacting their local Hunter Heavy Duty Representative at www.hunter.com/demos
