Torque Parallel loader linkage

The mid-sized Volvo L45F and L50F wheel loaders are made for performance with features that include the patented Torque Parallel (TP) loader linkage, separate working hydraulic pumps for maximum power, 100 percent axle differential locks, and long service intervals. Rear axle oscillation increases machine stability.

The TP linkage gives smooth, parallel lift, high rollback torque, excellent lifting power throughout the lift range, and a clear view of attachments. A wide rollback angle retains loose bucket material, while the parallel lift action makes it suited for material handling and pallet handling.

The Volvo L45F and Volvo L50F wheel loaders provide separate power steering and load-sensing hydraulic pumps. The advantage of this design is that separate pumps ensure full steering power, regardless of the load on the main hydraulic pumps. Oil flow on the load-sensing pump automatically adjusts to match work demand. The result is lower fuel consumption during lighter work and increased component life – along with no compromise in performance when operating in tough conditions or demanding applications.

K-Tec 1263 ADT: World’s Largest Construction Pull Scraper Has Heaped Capacity of 63 Cubic Yards

K-Tec Earthmovers, a Canadian-based manufacturer, has just launched its latest and largest construction pull scraper for massive scale earthmoving. The K-Tec 1263 ADT is the world’s largest earthmoving scraper available on the market today. With a heaped capacity of 63 cubic yards (ISO) and empty tare weight of 61,000 pounds, the K-Tec 1263 ADT is built for massive dirt moving projects. Designed to be pulled with a 40Ton+ Articulated Dump Truck, this scraper is ready to help contractors substantially reduce their dirt moving costs and gain a massive advantage in the earthmoving industry. The hitch system transfers 32 percent of the scraper load weight directly to the point where the truck is designed to carry weight. An exclusive digital display screen is included in the cab for visual operating details, tracking load count productivity, and troubleshoot serviceability. The 1263 ADT has a bolt-together design which enables overseas container shipment, and ease of maintenance.

To maximize the 1263’s capacity, a push dozer in the cut is recommended to utilize the standard roller push-block innovation (an exclusive feature in today's scraper market). Additionally, for contractors with excavators, the K-Tec 1263 ADT works exceptional as a haul wagon with the large target area making for easy and efficient loading. The K-Tec 1263 ADT was enhanced from its predecessor, the K-Tec 1254 ADT. The extra 9 cubic yard capacity comes from a 15.25' long bucket and larger gate belly to contain more material. K-Tec has recognized the need for increased capacity and efficient scrapers for large contractors, and the 1263 ADT fills this gap in the market.

National Trucking Week 2015: We’ll Take Truck Drivers over Driverless Trucks

News articles earlier this year about driverless trucks operating in Nevada and the Alberta oil sands under restricted conditions set off speculation about whether we’ll need truck drivers within a few decades – and whether autonomous vehicles are an answer to the driver shortage.

National Trucking Week, celebrated September 6 to 12 this year, is a good time to consider the truck driving occupation and what we can do to encourage the best candidates to enter a demanding and essential career that requires judgment, planning, know-how and a host of other skills. Unlike autonomous vehicles, drivers may be called upon to react quickly to unexpected incidents on the road, bringing all their varied experience about their equipment, the load they’re hauling, and road conditions into play. The question is, is the trucking industry appealing to enough quality candidates to meet our needs today – and in the future?

DEUTZ Builds Its Nine Millionth Engine

In the middle of 2015, Cologne-based engine manufacturer DEUTZ produced the nine millionth engine in its 150-year-plus history. Thanks to continuous improvements in efficiency and cutting-edge exhaust aftertreatment systems, DEUTZ engines are in demand all over the world.

DEUTZ AG was founded in Cologne in 1864 and in 1867 the company’s founders, Nicolaus August Otto and Eugen Langen, developed the atmospheric gas powered engine – known as Engine No. 1. This was followed in 1876 by the world’s first four-stroke engine, whose German name, Ottomotor, still honours its inventor today.

Terex GEN2 R265T Compact Track Loader – Heavy-Duty Machine with a Light Footprint

Featuring a 74-hp turbocharged Tier 4 Final diesel engine with variable flow hydraulics for powerful productivity and quick cycle times, the new 2,650-pound rated operating capacity Terex R265T compact track loader is the newest member of the Terex Generation 2 (GEN2) loader line-up. Boasting a narrow machine width (70 inches), the R265T radial lift path compact track loader can easily maneuver and operate in confined or congested work sites, making it an ideal loader for rental stores and contractors working in site preparation, construction, landscaping, infrastructure development and demolition applications. Its purpose-built chassis is designed to be a heavy-duty machine within a compact package.

Proving it has the power and productivity to get the job done, the R265T loader has 221 ft-lb of peak torque, a tipping load of 7,571 pounds, a bucket breakout force of 5,800 pounds and a lift height of 125 inches, enabling it to get loading, picking and carrying, grading, back dragging or snow removal jobs done faster and more efficiently. Compact track loaders, like the R265T unit, engineered with a radial lift path – meaning the loader arms raise in an arc pattern – excel at digging and grading applications. Another benefit of the radial lift path configuration is the visibility around the unit it provides to operators, especially when working around existing infrastructure, such as homes and in backyards.

New Options for Freightliner 122SD Enhances Rugged Performance

The Freightliner 122SD can now be spec’d with Allison 4700 Rugged Duty Series (RDS) and Oil Field Series (OFS) automatic transmissions. The combination of the 122SD with Allison’s vocational transmissions is ideal for tough off-road and oil field applications.

Better performance comes from such features as 2nd Reverse, which offers a second “deep reverse” in addition to the standard reverse; automatic shifts, which automatically and smoothly make the right shift at the right time; and greater startablity, which uses less torque to launch and go. Both transmissions are available with Detroit DD13, DD15 and DD16 and Cummins ISX heavy-duty engines.
