Hino launches 2011 medium- and light-duty trucks

Hino Motors Canada are introducing their 2011 medium-duty truck (MDT) line-up in September. The 268, 338 and 358 models feature a bold new design and functional improvements that improve the trucks’ flexibility and driver comfort, efficiency and safety. The MDTs will also boast significant technological improvements to meet new emissions regulations. All 2011 Hino MDTs will employ Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) to fully comply with 2010 EPA emissions requirements. Hino’s application of the technology is also expected to reduce fuel consumption by three to five percent.

Driver safety and efficiency is improved with the addition of a Bluetooth-enabled GPS stereo and a new easy-to-read driver information display.

The 2011 Hino 338 will receive a boost to 260 hp while the torque on the Hino 358 increases to 660 lb-ft. The changes will improve the throttle response and driveability of both models. Front-axle capacity on the Hino 358 also increases to 14,000 pounds.

A ‘clean chassis’ option will be available for the Hino 268, 338 and 358. Parts that were previously mounted on the outside of the frame rails have been moved to behind the cab.

Eric Smith, national sales manager, said, “The launch of these new trucks is a milestone for Hino. The trucks have been redesigned virtually from the ground up. Drivers will notice the bold new styling in addition to chassis and power train refinements.

“New chassis configurations and power improvements will open up new market opportunities for our products.”

The all-new, light-duty, Class 5 Hino 198 truck for 2011 is built on a 19,500-pound GVWR truck chassis coupled to a 220-hp, 7.6-litre turbocharged Hino diesel engine.

According to Smith, “the new Hino 198 will have the extra power and performance requested of our light-duty trucks by Canadian customers.”

Caterpillar Adds AP1000F and AP1055F Pavers

Performance improvements and technology with a customer-friendly interface are key benefits of the new F-Series Pavers from Cat Paving Products. Several features help improve fuel economy while maintaining high performance levels. Engine performance is aided by the 167 kw (225 hp) Cat C7.1 ACERT engine, which meets European Stage IV and U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations without sacrificing power. On some F-Series models, a Cat C7.1 engine is also available that meets emissions equivalent to U.S. EPA Tier 3 and E.U. Stage IIIA. It provides power of 186 kW (249 hp).

Eco-mode is standard on F-Series pavers. When used with automatic engine speed control, Eco-mode efficiently manages engine RPMs to optimize fuel economy, reduce sound levels and keep the paver running smoothly. The control automatically adjusts RPMs when the engine reaches a high load threshold or needs additional cooling.

New DuraPatcher ECO Released

Cimline Pavement Maintenance Group has redesigned their successful DuraPatcher trailer-mounted spray injection pothole patcher. The new DuraPatcher ECO combines environmental, safety and cost-saving features while maintaining the performance of the leading pothole patcher. The Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) cites spray injection as the most cost-effective and fastest pothole repair method.

The new machine receives a fully compliant Tier IV diesel engine/blower package that is enclosed for security and safety. With 18% better fuel economy, the new engine powers the machine’s blower that is the basis for the spray injection process. A high volume, low-pressure air stream is used to transport the aggregate / emulsion mix with sufficient force to compact the material and provide a permanent patch. The DuraPatcher system utilizes virtually no moving parts in the delivery system. The new low profile design provides better visibility.

Astec V-Pack Stack Temperature Control System Receives Patent

ASTEC, Inc., has been awarded patent number 8,863,404 for its V-Pack Stack Temperature Control System. The V-Pack Stack Temperature Control System extends the range of mixes that can be produced without requiring that the flights be adjusted. The system’s “V-flights,” unique drum flights with a deep V-shape, and its use of variable frequency drives (VFDs), which provide control of the drum rotational speed, are keys to the control system managing an asphalt plant’s exhaust gas temperature and increasing overall efficiency.

The Stack Temperature Control System automatically controls exhaust gas temperature across a range of mix types and operating conditions by making drum speed changes. The system keeps baghouse temperature relatively stable as mix temperature changes and even as mix types change from hot mix to warm mix, from virgin to high RAP, and from dense graded to open graded mixes. These kinds of production changes would cause baghouse temperature changes of over 100° F (38° C) without the V-Pack Stack Temperature Control System.

Roadtec Brings Back Innovative Design for SP-100e Stealth Paver

Roadtec has brought back an innovative paver design with various updates. The SP-100e Stealth Paver is a simply-designed, low-maintenance gravity-fed paver built specifically for operating with the Roadtec Shuttle Buggy material transfer vehicle.

Gravity feeds the material directly to the auger from the mass flow hopper, replacing the need for slat conveyors, hopper wings, push rollers and tandem front boggies, thereby significantly reducing maintenance costs and initial purchase price. It also requires less engine power compared to a traditional conveyor system, which increases the machine’s fuel economy. The gravity-fed hopper is also used on Roadtec’s SP- 200e spray paver.
