Wheel Loader: Smooth Lifting, Strong Rollback

The L50F Wheel Loader features a torque parallel loader linkage system for smooth parallel lifting and high rollback torque. The power-steering and load-sensing hydraulic pumps are completely separate, ensuring heavy loads do not compromise steering capacity. Differential locks on both axles keep tire spin synchronized and allows for better traction in rough conditions. Volvo Construction Equipment; 828-650-2000; www.volvo.com

JobSite Waste Disposal: Takes All Kinds

The Badger Shredding System is a waste-recycling system capable of processing concrete while shearing and removing rebar, as well as removing 7-strand, high-tension cable from concrete panels. It can accept many other construction waste materials, including glass, carpet, rubber, wood and plastics, as well as organic and industrial waste. The system is powered by a 325-hp Cummins diesel engine, and its hydraulically driven, blade-lined shafts reduce material to 5-in.-or-less aggregate at 12 to 15 rpm. Its standard 5-cu-yd hopper can be extended with optional add-ons, and it discharges aggregate along a rubber conveyor belt with a variable height of 6 ft.

The Daredevil Spade Bit has a full-threaded cone tip for faster drilling. The bit’s contoured paddles aid in chip removal and speed up drilling. According to the manufacturer, these two features greatly increase the spade bit’s drilling speed compared to traditional spade bits.

The spade bit is available in a wide range of sizes, in standard 6-in. length as well as in 4-in. stubby length and in 16-in. extended length.
