he new Zaxis 240LC-3 excavator, which replaces the 230LC model, comes standard with an 11 ft, 10-in. arm; an 11,094-lb counterweight and 32-in. triple semi-grouser shoes. A 9- ft, 9-in. arm is also available as are 28-in. triple semi-grouser shoes. It is equipped with a Isuzu Tier-3-certified, overhead-camshaft, four-valve engine that has a rated power of 177-net peak hp at 2,000 rpm. The new CRES II cab is the largest in its class, the manufacturer says. anufacturer introduces a new self-contained, self-rescuer called the Oxy K plus S series. It features a new quick-flip stainless-steel easy opener allowing for faster and easier donning during emergency situations. Unlike other SCSR models, the lightweight Oxy K plus S series has the starter oxygen automatically activate as soon as the user takes the breathing hose from the apparatus, the company says. he line of Ingersoll Rand attachments has expanded with the introduction of several new attachments available for use on any manufacturer�s skid-steer loaders or compact track loaders. The line includes the box blade, which is designed for rough grading applications with the ability to fill in low spots and carry material to bring the surface close to grade. The 32-in.-high blade has a reversible cutting edge that can be flipped over when the wear limit is reached. The line also includes pallet forks, industrial grapples and three compact bucket configurations in a variety of sizes. esigned for confined areas and crowded construction sites, the new 3803ZT zero-tail-swing compact excavator allows the operator to push material with maximum efficiency, the manufacturer says. It provides a maximum drawbar pull of 6,614 ft-lb. A load-sensing system automatically shifts between low and high range to lower cycle times. The zero-tail-swing design of the 3803ZT eliminates rear overhang and provides increased maneuverability and visibility for the operator. anufacturer adds a new chemical corrosion inhibitor to its line of FastSet Commercial Grade products to help improve full depth repairs of highway bridges. The added corrosion inhibitor is designed to protect structural steel reinforcement bars by preventing oxidation after full depth repairs of highway bridges, parking garages, coastal facilities and other structures. The additive will allow the Commercial Grade products to absorb moisture and oxidation before it reaches the rebar.
