Rollouts September 2010
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.
The JRB Side Dump Bucket, manufactured by Paladin Construction Group, provides wheel loader operators with the flexibility of dumping material from many angles. One side of the bucket is shaped like a standard bucket to hold material, while the other side has a 45-degree, side-shoot dumping angle that allows full side dumping and angle backfilling. The bucket carries up to 4 cubic yards and is available in left- and right-hand dump functions.
Cardinal Scale Mfg. Co.’s new 825-CBW continuous bulk weigher is a compact control package for continuous weighing of bulk materials. The control package includes an 825 Spectrum weight indicator, software package, and tape printer. Display features include an interactive touch screen, color-coded QWERTY keyboard for data entry, pictorial representation of the bulk weigher and gates, target weight to be filled, total drafts required, navigation keys, and multiple language selection.
Eriez says its new Metalarm MA3600 Metal Detector with pulse induction technology provides balanced coil detection sensitivity and performance. Available in two models, the Hawk and Eagle, the units are microprocessor based with self diagnostics and fault indication. Features include local or remote on/off, sensitivity control, healthy signal relay, trip counter, hile pile detector, and various reject systems that can be added.
The new track-mounted mobile pivot base from Superior Industries delivers free-ranging conveyor movement. The unit is self-contained and powered by an onboard 48-horsepower Deutz diesel engine with a 30-gallon fuel and hydraulic oil tank. Features include wireless remote control operation and heavy-duty, hydraulic-drive rubber tracks nearly 9 feet in length. A two-axis gimbal provides maximum stability and rotational freedom on uneven ground or rugged terrain.
The new Michelin X-Traction tires from Michelin Earthmover Tires are now available in North America. The E4 tires are designed for earthmover transport equipment operating in rocky terrain. Two new technologies — a new cooling system shoulder design and C2 Technology casing architecture — reduce heat build up, allowing trucks to operate continuously at higher speeds. Features include up to a 13-percent deeper tread and thicker under-tread rubber for resistance to cuts and impacts.
Special articulation system
Doosan says its Moxy MT41 articulated dump truck offers high horsepower per ton of loaded weight, a free-swinging rear tandem bogie, and a special articulation system for outstanding productivity and driving performance. The truck’s 444-horsepower Scania diesel engine provides a power-to-weight ratio of 6.38 horsepower per ton and an 82,010-pound payload capacity. Other features include permanent six-wheel drive, independent front-wheel suspension for better traction, a sloping body for low center of gravity, a fully automatic transmission with six forward and three reverse speeds, and a top speed of 32.9 miles per hour in high range and 21.1 miles per hour in low range.
