Mitsubishi Fuso Introduces New 2013 Model-Year FUSO Canters

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. (MFTA) has announced the availability of its 2013 model-year medium-duty cabover trucks. The new 2013 FUSO Canters are in production now, and the first models were displayed in the Mitsubishi Fuso booth at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, March 5-8. These trucks feature the same great lower-cost-of-ownership benefits as the 2012 models, with some additional refinements and options.

In addition to the five cab colors MFTA has traditionally offered, the 2013 Canters can be ordered in Solid Black—which helps give these trucks a striking appearance, and can save some customers from having to paint the cabs to match their company colors.

All new 2013 Canters will come standard with dual batteries, and will also include a factory-installed PTO wiring harness designed to receive an optional, matched control switch and to make connection to optional PTOs easy. Moreover, a 33-gallon side-mounted fuel tank will once again be available as a factory-installed option, and mirrors will have new, wider mounting arms that facilitate the installation of bodies with outside widths up to 102” on all Canter FE models, including the Canter FE160 Crew Cab.

Cedarapids CR652RX Remix Paver Boasts New Tier 4 Final Engine, Improved Operator’s Platform Design and Telematics

Offering its industry-exclusive Remix Anti-Segregation System, the Cedarapids CR652RX from BOMAG is powered by a 260 hp (194 kW) Cummins Tier 4 Final diesel engine, offering the latest technology to meet today’s stringent emissions standards. The powerful turbocharged engine offers plenty of horsepower to operate the machine’s Remix Anti-Segregation System augers, paver functions and electric screed, plus it offers reserve power to operate options such as lights for night paving. This mainline paver delivers the production required for full-width paving applications such as airports, interstates and state highways, and major county road and highway construction.

The new operator’s platform design for the CR652RX Remix and all Cedarapids Tier 4 Final pavers significantly increases operator visibility to improve paving quality and efficiency. The new swiveling seat pivots the operator beyond the paver’s side, providing unobstructed line of sight to the front wheel bogies and/or track. The redesigned operator’s console also moves and pivots to line up with the operator’s seat, improving operator comfort.

Roadtec Presents Autotracking Package for Material Transfer Vehicles

The Autotracking package for the Roadtec Shuttle Buggy Material Transfer Vehicle automates the Shuttle Buggy allowing it to operate at a continuous speed with a paver. This new option enables the paver to set the speed for the Shuttle Buggy preventing any defects in the mat associated with stopping and starting the paver.

Currently, MTV operators have to continuously monitor and adjust their speed to keep their distance from the paver constant; with the Autotracking package, that constant worry is eliminated. The speed of the Shuttle Buggy is automatically adjusted up or down to maintain a set distance from the paver. This option seamlessly links the paving train and improves operation by eliminating inconsistencies with speed and distance.

Roadtec RX-600e Tier 4 Final Transition

The RX-600e cold planer offers a unique combination of power, balance, and efficiency. Previously meeting Tier 4 interim compliance, the new RX-600e is powered by a Cummins QSX 15 Tier 4 final engine with a maximum power of 675 hp (496 kW) @ 1,850 engine. True to the Roadtec way, the machine remains extremely accessible and operator-friendly with simplified controls.

The tier 4 final version of the RX-600e comes with a number of updated components including back lit ground controls. In order to provide additional safety and operator comfort, a dust extraction system is now a standard feature on the RX-600e. This system pulls dust from the primary conveyor and ejects the particles into the dump truck alongside the secondary conveyor.

TanGO rear-drum tangential oscillation increases roller’s flexibility

The BOMAG BW190ADO-5 tandem vibratory roller offers traditional front-drum vibration and BOMAG TanGO rear-drum tangential oscillation, increasing the machine’s flexibility. With TanGO, vibration forces are always directed horizontally, and the drum maintains continuous ground contact, so the roller delivers efficient compaction results after only a few passes. Reaching beyond traditional highway and roadway projects, the versatile BW190ADO-5 roller can be used to compact more sensitive applications such as working within close proximity to buildings and on bridge structures.

The BW190ADO-5 offers a mainline 78.3-inch (1,990mm) rolling width. The TanGO vibration system is built on careful coordination of exciter system to drum weight ratios to deliver optimum compaction performance. The rear drum boasts a highly wear resistant drum wrapper surface, covered by an eightyear/ 8,000-operating-hour warranty, ensuring years of reliable service with low operating costs.

MOBA-matic levelling system with new temperature sensor

MOBA Mobile Automation AG’s MOBA- matic levelling system for asphalt pavers now has a material temperature sensor that displays to the MOBA-matic II control panel in real time while paving is in progress.

The temperature sensors can be installed with a magnetic mount at different positions on the paver, either in the hopper to monitor temperature on delivery, or in the area of the screed. The material temperature is measured throughout the paving process. This process will work best where agitated material can be measured.

ROAD BUILDERS SEE BIG GAINS IN PERPETUAL PAVEMENT

A perpetual pavement is a multi-layer design consisting of a renewable surface layer, a strong, rut-resistant intermediate layer, and a flexible, fatigue resistant rich-bottom layer.

Designed to last a minimum of 50 years, perpetual pavements initially cost approximately 30 percent more than conventional road structures but deliver numerous advantages, notably reduced costs for road rehabilitation over the long term.

FIVE WAYS TO PREVENT ASPHALT RAVELLING

Ravelling is one of the most common, but easily preventable failure modes of asphalt pavements. Ravelling occurs as individual aggregate particles dislodge from the pavement surface downward. It usually starts with the loss of fine aggregate (fines) and advances to the loss of larger aggregate sizes.

A ravelling pavement will deteriorate in an exponential manner, meaning that deterioration will become progressively faster with time. A ravelling pavement will initially lose fines, leaving a pock-marked surface texture, followed by the loss of larger aggregate sizes leading to a rough surface texture with large, exposed aggregate, eventually resulting in the loss of the entire lift of asphalt pavement.
