In-cab backhoe attachment for skid steers increases producitivity

The design of the new EDGE In-Cab Backhoe for skid steers allows the operator to remain in the comfort and protection of the cab, operate all of the backhoe functions including vertical stabilizers, side-shift, boom extension, swing, dipper and bucket, as well as the ability to move the machine as needed. Without ever leaving the cab, operators will experience more productivity as they are able to increase cycle times in any trenching application.  

The EDGE In-Cab Backhoe is easy to assemble and basically consists of installing new cylinder pins, attaching the top and bottom mounts, connecting to the skid steer loader and securing arm hooks. Steps on the backhoe frame make it easy to get in and out of the cab. Once seated, the control assembly tips back and all of the controls for the backhoe and the skid loader are conveniently at your fingertips.

Features of the new EDGE In-Cab Backhoe include a powerful digging depth of 9’4” (2850 mm), an extended reach of 10’11” (3340 mm), pivot rotation of 180 degrees and a maximum angle of bucket rotation of 206 degrees. Vertical stabilizers and 40” (1016 mm) side-shift features allow operators to dig next to buildings, fence lines or other obstacles. Cushioned swing pads at three points offer smooth stop at maximum swing and stick retract.

This new EDGE In-Cab Backhoe fits up to most Gehl and Mustang skid steer loaders and comes standard with auxiliary hydraulics, hoses and flat face couplers. Buckets are available in 12” (300 mm), 16” (400 mm), 20” (500 mm) and 24” (600 mm) for any size trenching job.

Atlas Copco Previews New Dynapac F800T Tracked Paver

Atlas Copco’s new Dynapac F800T tracked paver joins the company’s 10-foot highway class paver range. The new paver meets Tier 4 Final emission regulations and enhances productivity through operator comfort and optimal visibility.

The operator has high visibility of the paving surface with the paver’s dual, swing-out operator platforms. The dual operator platforms swing out from each side to give the operator a clear view of the worksite. The platforms also eliminate operator fatigue from prolonged leaning that can occur when an operator strains in a stationary seat to get a clear view of the work surface.

Mid-size paver provides stability of a large machine and maneuverability of a small machine

A smaller-size asphalt paver with the right dimensions is giving a Kitchener, Ontario asphalt contractor the ability to profitably place pavements from residential streets to bike paths with a single machine.

Quality Paving does government road construction, in addition to suburban residential work. “We’re 75 percent civic or government work and the rest commercial,” said Dave Tittley, president and owner, Quality Paving 1994 Ltd. “We get the call because we can do the small and the big pavements.”

Cat pavers feature new screed heating system, oscillating bogies and high visibility touchscreen

An integrated generator, the power behind a new screed heating system on the AP1000F and AP1055F asphalt pavers, is directly connected to the paver engine. The screed can reach operating temperature in approximately 15 minutes, compared with the previous 30 to 45 minutes. Also, the F-Series pavers run at about 1,300 rpm, reducing sound levels which can lead to earlier start times in residential areas.

The 167 kw (225-hp) Cat  C7.1 ACERT engine meets EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. On some F-Series models, a Tier 3, 186 kW (249-hp) engine is available Eco-mode is standard and when used with automatic engine speed control, it manages engine rpm to optimize fuel economy, reduce sound levels and keep the paver running smoothly. Touchscreen high-visibility, colour displays provide increased flexibility for operating and adjusting the machine. New features are controlled through the touchscreen while the most frequently used functions are still controlled by switches.

Asphalt Drum Mixers’ single-drum counterflow plant

The EX Series of asphalt plants from Asphalt Drum Mixers, Inc. (ADM) use single-drum counter-flow technology. They offer high efficiency and a compact design for contractors with low- to medium-production needs, and produce 100 to 425 tons per hour at a very low cost per ton. The company says that these plants have the longest aggregate drying and mixing times in the industry, and are capable of processing high percentages of RAP. The EX Series is available in portable or stationary versions.

Using counter-flow technology, the EX Series has separate drying and mixing zones to achieve the maximum level of heat transfer and fuel efficiency. Furthermore, this system virtually eliminates unsafe hydrocarbon emissions. To make the plants even more environmentally friendly, ADM designed the system to reintroduce residual gases back to the drum’s combustion zone.
