Gradall; 330/339-2211; This clamp-down mounting base for concrete-placing booms can be clamped down to a foundation or structure, provided the structure is strong enough to absorb reaction loads. When used with self-climbing form systems, the base can become part of the framework and ride with the form scaffolding. The clamp-down base can be used with or without a tower. It can be attached to an 80-ft, freestanding tower for climbing to a 20-ft tower within a form-frame system, or merely clamped to floor truss work. Blastrac 2-4800DH shot blasting system is used for preparation of large concrete and steel surfaces such as highways, airport runways and bridge decks. With a travel speed up to 350 ft per minute and a 48-in. blast pattern, the machine strips, cleans and profiles up to 30,000 sq ft of concrete or 7,500 sq ft of steel per hour. The M Series 2 is the newest addition to the manufacturer’s product line of loader/backhoes. The new series includes the 580M, 580M Turbo, 580 Super M, 590 Super M and 580 Super M+models. These five models range from 76 hp to 98 hp with loader capacities from 6,182 to 7,327 lb. New engines and a new low-effort pilot control option have been added to all M Series 2 models. With the in-cab pattern change switch, an operator can easily switch between backhoe and excavator control preference. Manufacturer introduces the ProPaver 813RT. Key features on this model include a turbo-charged, 80-hp Isuzu diesel engine; and an exclusive load-sensing hydraulic system that saves on fuel consumption by delivering power only when needed. Paving widths from 4 to 14 ft are standard, while optional 18-in. bolt-on extensions increase the overall paving width up to 16 ft. Screed extensions are hydraulically controlled, allowing the operator to change paving widths on-the-go between 8 and 14 ft. Model XL 4300-II, a new hydraulic excavator in the 45,000-lb class, offers the combined advantages of a tilting, telescoping boom for full versatility, even on low-overhead jobs, says the manufacturer. Equipped with load-sensing hydraulics, the XL 4300 is capable of performing excavations, demolition and other high-productivity jobs. Its telescoping, tilting boom actions also maximize the productivity of a range of attachments, enabling the machine to complete fine grading, sloping, ditching and other delicate functions.
