Rollouts July 2012
Easy conveyor idler replacement
Martin Engineering’s new EVO Return Roller is a track-mounted, pivoting, return-side idler that allows service and replacement from one side of the conveyor. The roller features an integrated fine adjustment to completely square the belt. Its one-pin quick-change function makes service fast and easy, so the roll can be replaced by one person. The assembly includes a three-piece adjustable hanger bracket and swivel/pivot component, which allows the roll to be swung away from its support prior to removing the entire assembly. Return rollers can be used anywhere the belt sags on the return side of the conveyor, or in situations where there are seizing issues that require frequent roll replacement.
Suite of technology solutions
John Deere WorkSight is an integrated suite of technology solutions for business optimization. It consists of five technologies, including:
• JDLink — a machine monitoring system that provides machine location, utilization measures, and maintenance tracking via an easy-to-use website.
• Fleet Care — a program that processes JDLink data, fluid analysis, and machine inspection results to identify problems, determine criticality, and e-mail corrective actions to take before it causes downtime.
• Service ADVISOR Remote — a program that enables a John Deere dealer to connect remotely to a machine to read diagnostic trouble codes and record machine performance data.
• Grade control systems — technology used to reduce the cost of a job in terms of labor, material, and engineering.
• Payload weighing — a system that measures and transmits the weight of a load of material in the bed of an articulated dump truck or the bucket of a wheel loader.
