B.A.G. Corp.; 800/331-9200; Aggregate equipment manufacturer’s new Nordberg GP550 cone crusher and C3054 wide-jaw crusher are the newest to join its product lineup. The GP550 crusher allows an installation height of 9.2 ft and has a top power output of 471 hp. New lube systems, pumps and bearings boost reliability, says the producer. The new C3054 fits both stationary and mobile plants. It has a 30-in. by 54-in. nominal feed opening and crusher speed of 260 RPM. Chemical maker offers a new, 100% acrylic sealer designed specifically for decorative concrete. The EverClear sealant’s breathable technology allows moisture to evaporate out while resisting discoloration, peeling or flaking, the manufacturer claims. Applied with a sprayer or roller, it offers a satin finish without excessive shine. What this heavy equipment supplier calls a "metallurgical breakthrough" may cut undercarriage costs significantly on crawler dozers. Bushings coated with the new SC-2 technology are compatible with existing John Deere dozers as well as several other brands, the producer says. The coating offers corrosion-resistance similar to chrome plating but is 25% harder. During the manufacturer’s three-year field test, the SC-2 coating showed twice the wear-resistance of typical bushings. Equipment manufacturer’s new Model 12000 crawler is the largest of six cranes imported into North America under a licensing agreement with Japan-based Kobelco Cranes Co. Ltd. Built this year on a new platform developed since the 2003 import deal, the lattice-boom crane lifts up to 120 tons with a 230-ft-long, main boom reeved with a 10-part line. A Mitsubishi turbo diesel engine supplies 332 hp at 2,000 RPM. The crane offers up to 310 ft of reach with optional luffing attachments. It has a maximum line speed of 535 fpm and handles up to 12.5 tons of material in clamshell mode. Bulk container supplier has a new 1-ton bag in its "Super Sack" family of products. The new bag features an open duffel-top design that users can secure with an attached web tie. These containers can hold up to 2,200 lb of construction materials, including sand, cement, aggregate, paving stone, brick and soil. Users can transport the bags from above with lifting loops (included) or from below with a pallet (not included).
