Four Heavy Duty Fork Lifts
Hyundai has introduced four new heavy forklift trucks (110D-7E, 130D-7E, 140D-7E and 160D-7) with load capacities between 11 and 16t.
A Cummins diesel engine, the QSB6.7 with 119 kW (162 hp), provides the necessary power on all four models. The six-cylinder engine meets Tier III emission standards and can take the truck up to a speed of 35 km/h. Not only does it allow for good acceleration, it also provides for a high climbing ability on rough terrain and slopes.
The spacious and well-ventilated cabin makes for a comfortable working place and combines fatigue-free work with high performance. Combined with a powerful air-conditioning and heating system this ensured by a comfortable driver’s seat and an ergonomic and bird's eye view of all of the controls.
CW welcomes any initiatives that help reduce the high number of accidents in the construction industry.
Steel Tracks for Bobcat
The steel tracks are an alternative to the conventional rubber tracked versions, allowing the loaders to work in conditions that are unsuitable for rubber tracks.
These work conditions include arduous applications found in demolition, scrap metal recycling and waste treatment. In addition, the steel tracks facilitate work on rocky and abrasive soils, as well as breaking and clearing concrete/asphalt surfaces and working on slopes and in forests.
The 340 mm wide steel tracks offer up to three times the life of rubber tracks in heavy duty applications. Compared to the rubber tracked versions, the steel tracked T250, T300 and T320 models have an increase in operating weight of approximately 280 kg each and provide a 37-45% increase in pushing force across all three models.
New TCC-750 Crawler from Link-Belt
The retracted gauge, good for transport or work, is 2.56 m (8.4 ft). Two additional working modes at 11.9 ft (3.63 m) and, fully extended, at 14 ft (4.27 m) add jobsite versatility.
The new crane features an exclusive four-section, full-power formed boom with greaseless Teflon wear pads. Boom length is 38 to 115 ft (11.58 to 35.05 m) with a maximum tip height of 121 ft (38.88 m).
Optional equipment includes a 35 to 58 ft (6.09 to 17.7 m), two-piece, on board lattice fly with offsets of 2, 15, 30, and 45 degrees. The maximum boom and jib length is 179 ft (54.55 m).
New Engines from John Deere Power Systems
This means the engines are extremely well suited to heavy-duty pumping of chemical and petroleum products.
The John Deere PowerTech 6081HFH70 has 8.1L of displacement and offers up to 242 kW (325 hp) at 2100 rpm. The 6081HFH70 is a 6-cylinder, electronically controlled, turbocharged and air-to-air aftercooled industrial engine for use in marine auxiliary applications.
The new PowerTech 6081AFH75 also has 8.1L of displacement and offers up to 280 kW (375 hp) at 2400 rpm. It is a 6-cylinder, electronically controlled engine with an air-to-coolant aftercooler and a water-cooled exhaust for use in marine auxiliary applications.
