JLG Adds Custom Simulator to Its Training Tools

JLG Industries, Inc., has added a lift and access equipment simulator to its arsenal of teaching tools at its recently expanded training center in McConnellsburg, PA. The simulator employs advanced gamification learning to familiarize operators with the controls and operation of the JLG800S telescopic boom lift and the JLG G10-55A telehandler. It offers three training sessions on each piece of equipment, including controls familiarization and two operation scenarios (beginner and advanced levels).

“All of the controls work just like those on a boom lift or telehandler. Two joysticks allow an operator to maneuver height and reach, and also drive the machines,” said Richard Smith, JLG Industries’ senior director of product training. “Everything is to scale, and the module offers two views: one from the operator’s perspective and a second external side view of the equipment. The simulator helps reduce the learning curve when a user first operates a piece of JLG equipment, as it replicates working with an actual machine on an actual job site.”

Facelift: The New 172 EC-B 8 Litronic Flat-Top Crane

Liebherr has updated its 160 EC-B Flat-Top crane and has now unveiled its successor, the 172 EC-B 8 Litronic. The crane's lifting capacity has been increased to provide users with increased performance. The crane's erection process has also been simplified even further.

The redesign of the new 172 EC-B 8 Litronic Flat-Top crane has resulted in a major increase in performance in terms of its lifting capacity. Its lifting capacity has in fact been increased by 15% over the full length of the jib. The new Flat-Top crane will now hoist 2,100kg at the jib head with a radius of 60.0m and offers a maximum capacity of eight tonnes. This represents an increase of 250kg at the jib head over its predecessor. The modular concept and the compatibility of the tower systems among each other ensure that the crane is suitable for a wide range of uses. With the Liebherr 120 HC, 170 HC or 256 HC tower systems, free-standing hook heights of up to 71.4m can be achieved.

Put To the Test: TEREX CC 8800-1 Crawler Crane with Boom Booster Kit Erects Wind Turbine with Ease

The Terex Boom Booster kit is a lattice boom structure with a width of 10 meters (32.8 ft) and a length of up to 72 meters (236 ft) that is designed to increase the lifting capacity of Terex CC 8800-1 crawler cranes. Terex Cranes developed the kit specifically for application scenarios with large loads and long boom systems, which is characteristic of the requirements involved in erecting large wind turbines. “It’s as if the kit had been designed specifically for our project at Windpark Noordoostpolder. Needless to say, that’s why we decided to try it out there,” says Sarens project manager Hendrik Sanders. Sarens’ client, ENERCON, had asked for a Terex CC 9800 lattice boom crane, but the latter was not available at the time due to Sarens’ large workload. Because of this, Sarens instead offered the customer a CC 8800-1 crane in combination with a Boom Booster kit, which, when configured as required for the lifts at the wind farm, would make it possible to reach the lifting capacities of the next higher crane class without a problem. The increased reach means that the Boom Booster kit is further enhancing the versatility of Sarens’ fleet, which has a total of six CC 8800-1 crawler cranes.

Xtreme Manufacturing Uprates Largest RT Telehandler Made In North America

Xtreme Manufacturing is uprating its new XR6538 roughterrain telehandler to the XR7038. Introduced at ConExpo 2014 as the Xtreme XR6538, the machine has since undergone full testing and has been uprated to a lifting capacity of 70,000 pounds. This is a 5,000-pound increase in lift capacity from the initial ConExpo specifications and further cements its position as the largest-capacity rough-terrain telehandler manufactured in North America, according to the company.

The XR7038 has been designed by Xtreme’s in-house engineering team for mining, bridge construction and pipe handling applications, plus any jobsite where there is a need to lift and move heavy loads. Weighing in at 115,000 pounds (unloaded) with 38 feet of lifting height, and featuring 6.5-foot-tall foamfilled tires and a 24-foot turning radius, the XR7038 is an ideal alternative to small crane applications, especially as it can transport as well as lift a load. It is powered by a Cummins 300-hp Tier 4 Final engine and has a large 150-gallon fuel capacity to reduce the frequency that the machine will need to be refuelled.

A CAD representation of the new J D Neuhaus 100 metric ton Profi super silent hydraulic hoist unit.

Hoists incorporating the latest generation of super silent hydraulics have now been added to the J D Neuhaus range of high performance lifting and handling equipment. In both their Profi and EH monorail hoist ranges, units providing 75 and 100 metric ton lift capacities have been added. Where heavy loads are lifted and transported in highly restricted spaces with only minimum headroom, then a JDN ultra-low monorail hydraulic hoist range has been introduced, initially available with 50 and 100 metric ton lift capacities and designated as JDN UH 50-H and JDN UH 100-H.

All these new lifting products can be deployed as viable alternatives to air driven equipment in locations where hydraulic lines, control hydraulic systems or hydraulic aggregates form part of an existing power set-up available at a proposed location site.
