Terex Minerals Processing Systems introduces the Terex Cedarapids CFJ3750 plant, which combines a JS Series jaw crusher with a high-stroke, 52-inch by 20-foot vibrating grizzlyfeeder to create a high-production portable crushing machine. The system boasts a new hopper design to handle severe primary applications, while the jaw crusher features improvements such as wedge-release jaw dies and hydraulic-assist crusher settings. Isolation of the jaw reduces plant vibration, while the tail of the product conveyor lowers for operation, maximizing clearance under the crusher. The conveyor discharge adjusts to reduce material impact on the receiving conveyor.

The Cat 834K builds on the machine’s nearly 50-year history with a completely new cab, drive train refinement, new monitoring and diagnostic features, new safety features, and structural enhancements. Available blade types include straight, universal, semi-universal, and coal, ranging in capacity from 10.3 to 29.0 cubic yards. The 496-horsepower Cat C18 engine is available in three configurations, including Tier 4 Final, Tier 3 equivalent without after-treatment, and Tier 2 equivalent without after-treatment. The Cat 4F/3R planetary power-shift transmission features a new Advanced Productivity Electronic Control Shifting system, which is designed to provide greater momentum through shift points, enhancing performance and saving fuel.

For customer convenience in using Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) and other fluids in its Tier 4 Final equipment, John Deere offers a full range of fluids and handling equipment. The company now offers a line of pump kits and portable dispensing units for handling larger volumes of DEF. The 110V and 12V pump kits come fully assembled and include everything needed to dispense DEF, including 4-foot suction hose with closed system dry break coupler and 20-foot discharge hose with stainless steel automatic shutoff nozzle. It also offers 20- and 60-gallon portable dispensing units, which consist of a DEF compliant tank, removable 12V pump with 20-foot dispensing hose, and stainless steel auto shutoff nozzle with swivel. These units are designed to fit in a pickup truck or on a fuel trailer for easier transport.

Lake Erie Portable Screeners adds three roller bed conveyors — ground, stacking, and radial stacking — to its line of screening equipment. The manufacturer says roller bed conveyors excel in applications that require consistent and continuous transfer of materials and move heavier loads faster and with less power than slider bed conveyors, which typically have smaller drive pulleys that require more torque to operate. The ground conveyor is mounted on a steel frame that rests directly on the ground, with a large footprint for enhanced stability. The stacking and radial stacking models move from 5 to 11 feet high and feed material directly into a loading vehicle or to create stockpiles. The units can be used with the company’s Pitbull 2300 screening plant to produce three grades of material at once.

The new Terex Cedarapids MVP380X cone crusher, from Terex Minerals Processing Systems, includes enhancements that increase the unit’s productivity and ease of use. The 300-horsepower crusher incorporates pinned cylinder ends that remove quickly to allow fast cone separation for quicker manganese changes and less downtime. At the press of a button, fully guided dual-action, tramp relief cylinders provide a 6-inch lift for easy clearing of jammed material to reduce downtime and increase productivity. The hydro-pneumatic tramp iron relief system instantly resets the crusher setting after passing uncrushable material without having to activate valves and pumps. Computer-optimized main frame components are all-cast construction, while a more rugged cone head is designed for abrasive, hard rock crushing applications.

Terex Minerals Processing Systems introduces the Terex Cedarapids V Series horizontal screens, which combine the efficient, high G-force ElJay oval stroke motion with variable slope operation to handle larger deck loads. The new design features more steel in the ‘rock zone’ to improve durability. The LJ-TSV screens have multiple new patent-pending features to boost production, including a variable slope that handles larger deck loads and bigger screen openings to increase production. The screens install up to 10 degrees in 2.5-degree increments to suit the application. A patent-pending vibration damper system offers low maintenance, while a patent-pending optional bottom deck deflector boosts efficiency.

Montabert introduces its V46SHD heavy-range hydraulic breaker, which features an automatic speed variation system, adjusting its impact energy and striking rate to match material hardness in demolition, excavation, and quarrying applications. Designed for use on excavators weighing between 59,500 and 88,200 pounds, the 5,616-pound hydraulic breaker delivers between 510 and 1,160 blows per minute. For optimal breaking power, the V46SHD requires a hydraulic flow rate of between 47-1/2 and 70 gallons per minute and is rated within the 7,500 foot-pound impact energy class. Standard features include a progressive start system that prevents the breaker from slipping, a blank-fire protection system that reduces harmful metal-to-metal contact, and an energy recovery system that recycles recoil energy to increase strike power. The fully hydraulic breaker’s enclosed energy chamber provides maximum and constant energy with every blow.

The new Cat M Series motor graders —12M3, 140M3, 160M3, and their all-wheel-drive counterparts — meet Tier 4 Final emission standards. The graders use Cat’s after-treatment solution, with the addition of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). A new standard economy mode can be used to help save fuel by reducing engine speed so the machine works in a more efficient range. The average fuel savings is up to 10 percent, depending on application. Product Link tracks location, hours, fuel usage, productivity, idle time, and diagnostic codes through the online VisionLink interface. In the cab, two electronic joysticks reduce arm movement by up to 78 percent to lessen operator fatigue and increase productivity.

Volvo’s new G-Series articulated haul trucks — including the A35G, 135G FS, 140G, and A40G FS — feature new turbocharged six-cylinder Volvo engines that meet Tier 4 Final emission regulations. The drivetrain and inline dropbox are designed for high ground clearance, while the drivetrain delivers high rimpull, lowers fuel consumption, and provides reliability in heavy-duty applications. Oil-cooled wet multiple disc brakes are said to reduce maintenance costs and increase uptime, even on muddy or dusty sites. A retardation system controls downhill haul speeds using wheel brakes and the engine brake. Automatic traction control and differential locks are standard, while an onboard weighing system allows the equipment operator to optimize payload. The machines are also fitted with CareTrack, Volvo’s telematics system.

The new Geith Generation 3 hydraulic quick coupler is said to provide operators with a safe, simple, and durable design that allows quick changes of attachments. Featuring four independent safety components, the double locking, fully automatic quick coupler configuration complies with the impending safety standards set forth by ISO/FDIS 13031:2013(E). The front safety lock retains the attachment in the event of improper link/rear pin connection, while the front safety lock and the mechanical secondary rear safety system independently retain the attachment in a working position should a loss of hydraulic power occur. It also features a hydraulic cylinder check valve, as well as a patented “curl to release” control system for safe attachment engagement and release.
