March 2010 – Rollouts
Sandvik Mining and Construction says its new electric-powered loader, the LHD, offers higher production while lowering operating costs and environmental impact. The 14-ton machine features an upgraded cabin design and vehicle control and management system. The loader is easy to service and maintain, resulting in less downtime. Other features include 30,865 pounds of tramming capacity and buckets ranging from 4.6 to 7.0 cubic meters.
Direct-drive tracked cone crusher
The Terex Finlay C-1550 incorporates the company’s 1300 cone crusher with direct drive. The unit features a pre-screen system with a single-deck 8- by 5-foot screen and 1,200-millimeter belt to remove fines. The cone offers variable speed, tramp relief system, and on-the-fly closed-side setting. The hopper/feeder has an automatic metal detection and purge system to protect the cone.
Portable tower structure
TCI Manufacturing says its portable tower structure plant is available with side-discharge conveyors and a high-frequency or dual-frequency screen. The gas/hydraulic-powered unit features a 13-horsepower, Honda four-stroke engine with electric start and direct-coupled, variable-volume pressure compensated pump. The engine allows the screen to be raised without electricity.
Angled-edge excavator bucket
According to Leading Edge Attachments, Inc., its patent-pending Stag bucket is a high-penetration excavator bucket that uses “staggered tooth” technology, allowing operators to focus the excavator’s full breakout force on one tooth at a time. The bucket is manufactured using T1 alloy steel and is available to fit on any excavator from 22,000 to 200,000 pounds.
Portable, compact wheel wash
Innovative Equipment Solutions says its new compact and portable wheel wash solution, the Tracinator, is a one-tire revolution dirt removal system for use where a complete, heavy-duty wheel wash system is not practical. The unit is designed to flush itself clear of debris by attaching a 2-inch hose from a water truck or fire hydrant and placing the clean-out valve in the open position. Debris is then flushed out through the open ports.
