Pull grader built from old graders

CW Enterprises offers a grading option for large construction sites and road building. The Pull Grader is built from older motor graders. The old graders get stripped down, rebuilt, and reworked into a pull type design. The Pull Grader was originally designed for agricultural use, including drainage and levelling. The weight of the unit and its ability to penetrate the soil in tough conditions also make it very useful on the construction site. The Pull Grader can be pulled with virtually any power unit however 250-hp to 400-hp 4WD Ag tractors seem to be the best fit. 

There are some definite advantages to the pull type design. With the added length of the grader they do an excellent job of levelling and also work well in soft and wet soil. Another reason they work so well is there is a lot more horsepower and traction for pulling the grader through tough spots where a motor grader would spin out. The company says you can move the same amount of dirt with a 25,000-pound Pull Grader as you would a 40,000-pound motor grader. CW Enterprises also custom conversions as well. The standard pull grader is 34 feet long, weighs 22,000 to 25,000 pounds, has a 14-foot moldboard, 14 x 24 rear tires, and requires four hydraulic remotes.

Vacuum Lifting Makes Road and Bridge Work More Efficient

The Octapad from Vacuworx is a flat pad vacuum lifter for concrete slab removal during road and bridge construction. A vacuum lifter greatly reduces the need for traditional slab-removal methods such as air or hydraulic hammers, drills, cables and slab buckets.

Each pad has individual vacuum that can be shut off for areas of the slab that are too damaged to lift. The Octapad is designed for use with hydraulic excavators that can lift and place materials directly into a truck for removal without re-handling. Vacuum technology allows for complete removal of the slab from the road bed, leaving the sub-base undisturbed for the subsequent patch pour. This lifting system handles up to 16,588 pounds and is engineered to lift reinforced concrete slabs up to 6x12 feet, 12 inches thick.

Fecon, Inc. New Depth Control Rotor Now Available for Excavators

Fecon, Inc. Depth Control Rotor system (DCR) is now available on all six excavator Bull Hog models. This brings a new level of performance and value to mulching, controlling the depth of bite and efficiently directing material flow so that energy is reserved for production. DCR cuts faster, delivering better fuel economy and more uniform particle size. The DCR system is an evolution that builds on Fecon’s reversible Samurai Knife Tool.

Depth control rings of the DCR system work in harmony with the Samurai Knife to enable more cutting with less HP. The shape of the Samurai knife edge efficiently slices as it chips, providing greater forgiveness on rock than straight-edged tools or saw teeth. Depth control rings lend further impact protection to the tool body, and reduce shock loading to the mechanical or hydraulic drive line.
