Bridgestone Americas Off Road Tire, a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC, Booth N-2501
Bridgestone’s V-Steel J-Traction (VJT) radial off-road tire features a computer-optimized center block that minimizes vibration levels, reducing friction between the center block and the ground to improve wear resistance and tire life. The tire has a specialized self-cleaning tread design and non-directional tread pattern to maximize tread volume and traction in all directions. The tires are available in five sizes — 17.5R25, 20.5R25, 23.5R25, 26.5R25, and 29.5R25.
Cardinal Scale Mfg. Co., Booth C-7733
Cardinal’s EPR+ Plus truck scale features interconnecting load blocks and receivers for an efficient, no-bolt installation. The scale arrives on site ready for the pouring of concrete — no rebar or other materials are required. Its Con-Lock system design allows concrete to flow through the I-beams and lock into place. Mounting brackets are flush mounted to allow for pit-type applications.
Caterpillar, Inc., Booth N-1913
Caterpillar says its new G Series 775 off-highway truck will be the first Cat machine to go into production with a Tier 4 Final emissions solution. The company says emissions reduction technologies are integrated into the machine’s design, allowing the truck to perform at peak production while reducing emissions by approximately 90 percent.
