Trailer-Mounted Generator: Quick Start

The dual-frequency capable QAS 200 generator is powered by a John Deere 6068 Tier 4 Final diesel engine, and delivers 200 kVA/160 kW of prime power. An AREP alternator excitation system provides the operator stable power in under six seconds, according to the manufacturer. Its 335-gallon fuel tank allows it to run for 28 hours at 100% load or 37 hours at 75% load. An optional parallel controller allows multiple generators to be linked and managed in parallel.

Tower Crane: Improved Comfort and Precision

Improvements to the 11LC Series tower crane include new access elements to the cat head and jib sections, as well as new drives in the hoisting winch and trolley that allow for linear movement. Potentiometers allow operators to position sensitive loads with ease and precision, according to the manufacturer. New to this series is an M-sized CUBE cab with a full glass front for better views of the load and the work area, and a more comfortable seat than in earlier cab models. The 11LC can also be erected easier than earlier models. Comansa;

The ProFlex 7551 gloves feature a dual layer of latex and nitrile. The 13-gauge high performance polyethylene liner is ANSI A5-rated for cut protection and also meets EN 388: 4X43E cut resistance standards. The gloves are coated in latex to be waterproof, and a sandy textured nitrile palm dip helps with gripping. A 10-gauge brushed acrylic fleece liner provides thermal protection. Ergodyne;

Demolition Hammer: Vibration Reduction

The 23-lb AVT Demolition Hammer has a 14-amp motor that delivers 18.8 ft-lb of impact energy. It features anti-vibration technology that uses an internal counterbalance system to minimize vibration, which is further reduced by a spring-loaded, vibration-absorbing rear handle. The hammer has both a variable-speed control that can be set by users and a constant-speed control that maintains speed by adjusting the power necessary under load for the job. The hammers comes with two LED warning lights: one to notify users of switch failure or cord damage and another to indicate that brushes need to be replaced. Makita;
