Concrete Pumping/Placing Without Compromise - continued
By doing this, the manufacturer avoids the space required when swivelling the supporting legs. Instead, the concrete pump operators can thread the support and lower the support legs through narrow gaps e.g. between containers, stored form panels or other construction materials.
For optimum convenience, there is the option of cable connected or remote control box.
For safety reasons, check valves on all boom cylinders, the swing gear, the outriggers and boom hydraulic cylinder protect against overloads and pipe bursts.
Restoring Efficiency of Solar Panels
The number of solar panels being installed are rapidly increasing as people recognize the cost savings and environmental benefits of this mode of electricity generation.
However, the efficiency of the panels can rapidly deteriorate as dust and other materials build up on the panels.
To gently clean roof mounted solar panels Klein GmbH introduced a mobile washing system. A large heated water tank and demineralization plant are mounted on a light truck frame. A 4-section boom carries the water line.
On the last boom section, a 4.6 m wide, roller-shaped rotating washing brush
KLEIN developed the attachment to clean the often difficult accessible glass surfaces, even of larger solar systems. So the often mossy gaskets between the glass and frame become thoroughly clean.
Yanmar Zero Tail Swing Midi Excavator
Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe S.A.S. used Bauma as the launch platform for the introduction of the B7 Sigma-6.
The 8-ton zero tail midi-excavator features the unique Σ boom, which the company claims is a breakthrough in the concept of the ultra tight turning machine.
With the flexible, forward articulation in the boom, it is possible to reach out and excavator under trench props, pipes or other obstacles.
Powered by a Yanmar engine delivering 41.5 kW, the 8,080 kg (rubber tracks) excavator has a maximum digging depth of 6,550 mm, forward reach of 6,550 mm and dump height of 5,480 mm. Width is 2,270 mm and maximum bucket capacity 1,005 litres.
A 2,280 mm x 450 mm dozing blade is fitted as standard. The ROPS/FOPS cab provides the operator with a safe, comfortable and well appointed working environment.
Recognized for its range of innovative material carriers, Yanmar presented the new and improved models C50R-5 and C50R-5TV now equipped with an automatic 2-speed hydrostatic transmission.
Other new products included the new wheel loaders V7 and V8 as well as the SV100 2-Piece Boom.
Two of the mini-excavators SV26 and ViO12 had a special outfit: a SV26 in complete black coating and a ViO12 in Bavarian blue-and-white-coating.
