Telsmith says its new H2238 Hydra-Jaw Series crusher reduces operating costs through a hydraulic toggle system that features a heavy-duty, custom-engineered, hydraulic cylinder. The company says the unit’s hydraulic adjustment, relief, and clearing systems eliminate costly downtime and prevent component damage, while also protecting workers. The crusher is engineered with a Pitman Lockout Pin that locks the Pitman in the forward position, allowing the toggle to be retracted and lowered away for maintenance in one safe, simple operation. The unit features a 22- by 38-inch jaw opening and is said to be easy to install on wheeled or tracked mobile units.
More horsepower, lower costs
Komatsu says its new WA1200-6 wheel loader was designed with environmental, technological, and ergonomic enhancements for greater productivity, while lowering operating costs. The machine is powered by a Komatsu SAADA16V160E-2 engine that delivers 1,892 gross horsepower at 1,800 revolutions per minute (rpm), yet offers increased fuel efficiency.
Features include an operating weight of 477,100 pounds; a dual-mode active working hydraulic system, allowing the operator to select between normal and powerful loading; an engine rpm control system with auto deceleration that allows the operator to set the engine rpm at the optimum work performance level and control speed smoothly with the accelerator; and an additional torque converter cooler that reduces oil temperature and increases cooling capacity.
Cardinal Scale has two new truck scales on the market — the SRC Guardian and the Yukon. The concrete deck of the full-platform SRC Guardian scale (right) is installed flush with the ground surface for easy access. Its hydraulic load cells are said to be invulnerable to common truck scale problems such as lightning damage, electrical surges, water damage, and rodent damage.
The Yukon scale is designed specifically for mining and off-road vehicle weighing, featuring a 150-ton capacity with high 70-ton concentrated load capacity. The scale is available in impervious hydraulic or electronic scale types and features extra-wide 12-, 14-, and 16-foot scale platforms.
TCI Manufacturing’s new 100-foot cantilever conveyor has the ability to rotate a full 360 degrees and will stockpile 60,000 tons of material in a 270-degree stockpile. Its axle assembly consists of three axles around a center pivot point that includes 12 tires with dual power drive assemblies. The unit features walkways along both sides of the conveyor for safety.
Case Construction introduced four new N Series loader/backhoe models — the 580N, 580 Super N, 580 Super N Wide Track, and 590 Super N — which replace the company’s M Series 3 machines. The machines feature 4.5-liter, turbocharged engines ranging from 79 horsepower to 108 horsepower, respectively. The company describes the N Series as “stronger everywhere,” touting increases in backhoe breakout force and lift, along with increased loader breakout force, lift, and reach.
Additional features include:
• Improved visibility and operator comfort;
• A new Power Lift that channels hydraulic power directly to the boom with the touch of a button, increasing lift capacity by as much as 39 percent;
