CASE introduces the new Tier 4 Final TR310 Alpha Series compact track
loader (74 horsepower, 3,100 pound operating capacity and bucket
breakout force of 8,680 pounds).
CASE introduces the new Tier 4 Final TR310 Alpha Series compact track loader (74 horsepower, 3,100 pound operating capacity and bucket breakout force of 8,680 pounds). The TR310 features wider tracks (15.75 inches), a greater overall width (74.3 inches) and lower ground pressure (5.0 psi) than other medium-frame CTLs in the CASE lineup. These features provide greater power, stability and flotation for owners who need that performance without upgrading to a large-frame machine.
With the Leica PaveSmart 3D control system from Leica Geosystems, the machine is controlled without stringlines. The actual 3D position is measured by robotic total stations and/or GPS receivers and transmitted to the Leica Machine Computer. High-accuracy machine-mounted slope sensors provide long- and cross-slope to keep the machine on-grade, typically within an accuracy of ± 5mm (±3 mm for concrete), depending on jobsite conditions.
Terex will exhibit the latest product advancements on the Terex® FD4000 front discharge mixer truck in booth #C5861 during World of Concrete 2015 held in Las Vegas. The four-axle mixer is powered by the Cummins CNG (compressed natural gas) engine or 2013 EPA-compliant Cummins or MTU diesel engines, offering power packages ranging from 350- to 450-hp (261- to 336-kW), depending on the model. Today’s FD4000 truck boasts a number of design improvements, including a 15% reduction in turn radius, 12% increase in wheelbase and 8.5 in (21.6 cm) additional leg room inside the cab. The FD4000 truck offers a standardized 11-yd3 (8.4-m3) mixer drum that excels in transporting and discharging low-slump concrete.
Dust Control Technology has announced its new and largest-ever suppression design: the DustBoss® DB-100. Engineered to reach the working face of large quarries and open cast mines, the atomized mist unit has a range of more than 100 metres. Able to reach stockpiles 200-300 feet high, the DB-100 can cover a massive area of 280,000 square feet (more than 26,000 square metres) from a single location. See us at WOC 2015 booth #C6902.
The John Deere 329E compact track loader features an 83 hp, Interim Tier 4-emission certified engine. The large-frame CTL boasts a flat floor design with 33 per cent more foot room than previous models and lower cab noise levels also contribute to reduced operator fatigue and increased productivity. The 329E includes low-effort electro-hydraulic (EH) controls and an option to allow the operator to switch between three popular industry control patterns (ISO, H, and foot control patterns).
Visit the Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment America booth (C5487) at the 2015 World of Concrete to see the newest line of Doosan wheel loaders and crawler excavators. See why Doosan heavy equipment is designed for demanding applications, such as quarries and gravel pits, and how attachments available for excavators and wheel loaders makes the machines more versatile. Learn about improvements in performance, fuel efficiency and operator comfort in the latest models.
Allied Construction Products, LLC has announced the addition of the Model AR 70D to their AR Series hydraulic impact hammer product line.
The Allied Model 70D AR Series hammers are built to meet the growing demands of the rental market and to offer an alternative hydraulic hammer to contractors. The Model 70D AR Series hammer offers reliable performance and minimum maintenance. The Model 70D (SSU) is a 748 pound hammer that mounts quickly on a skid-steer. It adapts easily to a mini-excavator or loader/backhoe with new mounting bracket configurations and two-position brackets for increased productivity.
The five compact radius Cat® E2 Series Mini Hydraulic Excavators will be on display at World of Concrete. The E2 models are designed to carry on the solid performance of their E Series predecessor, while adding even greater value for the customer. For example, the new High Definition Hydraulic (HDH) System in the E2 machines provides a load sensing and flow sharing capability leading to operational precision, efficient performance and greater controllability. The simple valve architecture reduces heat, which leads to a reduction in hydraulic instability and improved overall efficiency.
For concrete drilling projects needing exceptional accuracy and no disturbance to the subgrade, E-Z Drill offers its 210B SRA slab rider. Users can stitch or drill horizontally, vertically or at an angle and with diameters from 5/8 to 2 ½ inches and a depth of 18 inches.
