The industry’s first SCR skid steer, the CASE SR270, is also the industry’s largest radial lift skid steer with a rated operating capacity of 2,700 pounds at 90 horsepower. It weighs in at 8,117 pounds, delivers best-in-class torque of 282 foot-pounds and has a bucket breakout force up to 8,776 pounds.
The versatile Terex Bid-Well 3600 paver will be on display at World of Concrete 2016 in Las Vegas, Nev. February 2 – 5, 2016 in Terex Central Hall booth # C5861.
The 3600 paver offers a variety of paving widths ranging from 8 to 86 feet. Extremely flexible, it paves both standard duty slab-on-grade and bridge deck paving projects to increase machine utilization. Its standard 18-foot end segments offer 15 feet of leg travel, so the paver can instantaneously offer up to 30-foot variable width paving.
Doosan will display a variety of heavy equipment in its booth, C5487, in the Central Hall at World of Concrete. On display will be the new DL220-5 wheel loader, paired with a Z-bar loader linkage arm, as well as an optional hydraulic quick coupler and pallet fork attachment. The new DL220-5 is a 3.0-cubic-yard wheel loader and replaces the “dash-3” (interim Tier 4) model with a Tier 4-compliant Doosan DL06 engine. Also at the exhibit will be the new DX140W-5 wheel excavator with a new power tilting coupler and a DXB100H hydraulic breaker.
The four-axle, Terex FD4000 and six-axle, Terex FDB6000 front discharge mixer trucks on display will feature a new drum drive design. The new lighter weight gearbox reduces overall truck weight to increase truck payload.
Terex 2016 front discharge mixer trucks will include new front and rear tandem drive axle designs with disc brakes vs. the previous drum design that delivers a shorter truck stopping distance. The disc brakes also provide faster service time and less costly brake replacement compared to previous designs.
