Komatsu’s new line of D65-16 crawler dozers are powered with a fuel-efficient 8.27-liter Komatsu SAA6D114E-3 engine that pushes with a net 205 horsepower at 1,950 revolutions per minute. Operating weight ranges from 43,690 to 48,940 pounds. The new dozers feature the Sigmadozer blade; an automatic transmission with torque converter; a new six-way, power angle tilt blade; and the Komtrax fleet monitoring system.
KPI-JCI’s redesigned FT6203CC-3 track-mounted, closed-circuit horizontal screen, replacing the FT6203CC, creates three products instead of two while still maintaining the ability to return oversize material in a closed-circuit operation. Redesigned features include I-beam construction for improved strength, more ground clearance, larger tracks for greater load capacity, a more elaborate and user-friendly blending system, and a bogey attachment that allows increased portability.
Hydraulic breaker ventilation system
Atlas Copco says its new carrier-integrated breaker ventilation system delivers additional air to the breaker, minimizing the risk of extensive wear. The system installs using a simple hydraulic connection to the carrier, requires no separate tow-behind air compressor or additional air hose, is synchronized with the hydraulic breaker, and is said to operate without emissions.
EarthCorp Industries says its new multi-use loading equipment (MULE) systems can be customized to meet specific loading needs. The 26-, 30-, or 40-foot systems have a non-folding main conveyor with folding clam shell hopper, 48-inch feed belt, and 35-horsepower diesel engine. The systems can be towed behind a standard pick-up truck and can be set up and ready to feed in minutes.
IRock Crushers’ new Hydraset Hopper is designed to attach and remove the hopper/feeder module as a unit without the aid of any outside lifting devices, allowing the entire module to be detached and transported in minutes, not hours or days. The system has its own internal power pack for operating the removal or installation process. The company says the system can be safely and easily loaded on a trailer, moved, and reassembled with the crushing unit by one person.
GIW Industries says its new ZW Pump Series has proven to be a durable, low-maintenance, and affordable pump for vertical sump requirements. Features include a double-suction vertical design, a top- and bottom-suction design that allows it to run continuously in a “snore” condition to provide consistent pump action and reduce pump stress, and a semi-open impeller design that permits large solids to pass freely.
