Working with Bobcat Leads to Greater Competitiveness

Working with Bobcat Leads to Greater CompetitivenessFor over 25 years, Spanish company, Transports i Excavacions Jocar, has been in the business of earthmoving, transport, truck-mounted cranes and special excavation projects, in addition to the sale of aggregates in the Maresme area.

"We have a wide range of machinery so we can offer the best quality and optimal solutions for each client’s projects and needs," explains Manager, Joan Carles Mora. "We also have a crushing plant for recycling concrete, which provides us with subbase aggregates and recycled sand for use in other projects."

"We purchased a Bobcat E10 micro-excavator, one of the smallest in the range, with zero tail swing (ZTS) design and an operational weight of 1176 kg. We also purchased a ZTS Bobcat E35 compact excavator weighing 3.5 tonne. We already had a Bobcat 334 excavator."

"Several factors influenced our decision. The first was the quality of the product, and the second was the high level of service offered by the Bobcat distributor in our area."

"In the case of the E10 micro-excavator, we chose the machine because it sets us apart from our competitors. The recession has forced us to adapt and offer solutions for jobs that used to be performed manually. "

"I was amazed by its high working capacity in difficult-to-access areas due to its small size. It has allowed me to perform many jobs that would not have been possible with other excavators."

All Terrain Crane For Hoisting Pipelines

All Terrain Crane For Hoisting PipelinesH & S Autokrane mobile crane company of Hesse, Germany, had challenging conditions marked a lack of space. They chose their Terex Challenger 3160 all terrain crane.

"We had to hoist pipelines and steel elements up to a height of 42 meters (137.8 ft) for assembly in an existing steel structure," Jens Hartung explains. In doing so, the team had to overcome several particularly tricky challenges.

For one thing, the approach was extremely narrow, with some passages allowing for a width of just 2.60 meters (8.5 ft) and a height of only 3.60 meters (11.8 ft).

The compact design of the Terex Challenger 3160 crane was able to safely manoeuver the equipment through each "needle eye" without scraping the sides. Since there were also drains passing underneath the workspace, the maximum total crane weight for the job was limited to 40 tonnes (44.1 US tons).
