New “J” Series Crusher added to McCloskey Line

Machine diagnostics can drastically reduce maintenance downtime

McCloskey International has introduced a new addition to its "J" series of crushers, with some unique features that make the J44 Jaw Crusher a standout in its category.

The J44 main conveyor has a large stockpile capacity (12’ – 11") as a result of the standard extended 42" conveyor, and the large gap between crusher discharge and the main conveyor feedboot. The folding Hardox hopper is mounted over the vibrating feeder with integral pre-screen. Further, the feeder rate can be regulated manually or automatically by the load sensing jaw.

The J44 has an I-beam plate fabricated chassis construction, and features a true 44" x 26" (1118 mm x 650 mm) single toggle jaw with reversible hydrostatic drive and jaw plates as well as fully hydraulic closed size setting adjust capability.

Ease of maintenance is a strong advantage for the J44. The Control Panel is user-friendly and has machine diagnostics that can drastically reduce downtime for maintenance. Adding to the ease of maintaining a J44, the conveyor is easily removable as it raises and lowers hydraulically and the CAT C9 ACERT engine has all round access.

With the advantage of the efficiency of McCloskey’s integrated hydraulics, better fuel economy is realized and the J44 can be on-site and operational in a matter of minutes with its folding hoppers and conveyers. Easy to move from site to site, the J44 has transport dimensions of 11’-1.8" (3.4 m) high and 47’ - 5.5" (14.465 m) long, and weighs in at 88,184 lbs. (40,000 kgs).

With additional options like a water pump and dust suppression system, hopper extensions, an overband magnet or Crusher Deflector Plate, as well as robust standard safety features, the J44 is high performance and productive.

Ditch Witch RT80 Ride-On Trencher for Heavy-Duty Trenching in Small Places

Powered by a 74.5-hp (62kW) Deutz Tier 4 diesel engine, the new Ditch Witch RT80 ride-on trencher enables operators to perform big jobs in small places. The compact design and extensive axle capacity give the machine a best-in-class static load rating of 39,000 pounds (17,690 kg) to meet the demands of any heavy-duty trenching job. Standard rear steering gives the machine a tight turning radius for improved maneuverability on small sites.

For improved versatility, a three-speed, shift-on-the-fly ground drive control provides more options as jobsite conditions and requirements change. Further advancing versatility and productivity, the RT80 features a standard cruise control system for automatic adjustment to ground speed to changing soil condition. The system also senses engine loads and automatically adjusts ground drive speed to maintain maximum production.

Sonic pile anchor (building rests on and is anchored at same time).

It has taken more than 50 years for sonic drilling research to come full circle and back to one of its earliest uses as a pile driver. Today, new sonic piling technology is far superior and set to revolutionize the construction industry as well as help create new revenue streams for drilling companies.

Canadian engineer, Ray Roussy, who originally patented and successfully commercialized modern sonic drilling technology, is the inventor of this latest development. Roussy's new sonic pile-anchor allows a building to rest on top as well as be bolted and anchored to it.

Cat 272D3 SSL with BU118 Utility Broom in a working application

The new Cat 272D2 Skid Steer Loader, 297D2 Multi-Terrain Loader, and 299D2 Compact Track Loader – along with their more powerful XHP counterparts – build on the engineering advances in performance, operator comfort, visibility, control, and machine security of their D Series predecessors. Now standard on all six D2 Series models is the Caterpillar heads-up Advanced Display, and all feature a new engine-compartment sealing system for enhanced airflow debris control. Non-XHP models have increases in rated operating capacity (ROC), and XHP models now maintain their excellent ROC numbers without external counterweights. All models have a vertical-lift loader linkage and use a Cat C3.8 engine meeting U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV emissions standards.

With increases in Rated Operating Capacity of up to 8 percent, the D2 Series models provide excellent lifting performance for heavy loads and/or handling larger hydro-mechanical work tools. The 272D2, 297D2 and 299D2 models deliver ROC ratings of 3,400, 4,700 and 4,600 pounds, respectively, at 50 percent of tipping capacity. Ratings for the 272D2 XHP, 297D2 XHP and 299D2 XHP are 3,650, 4800 and 4,725 pounds, respectively, at the 50 percent rating. For applications that require additional lifting capacity, all six models can be equipped with optional bolt-on external counterweights.

VMAC RAPTAIR-G30 Gas Drive Air Compressor Boasts Small Footprint

VMAC's RAPTAIR-G30 is a high performance, gas engine driven, rotary screw compressor which has a price point comparable to its reciprocating gas drive competitors, but with reliability, durability and performance that is synonymous with VMAC rotary screw compressors. This marks the first time a rotary screw air compressor has been able to compete in the smaller CFM gas drive market.

At a continuous 30 CFM at 100 PSI (tested to ASME standards), it provides enough power to get most day-to-day jobs done, only faster because the RAPTAIR-G30 rotary screw compressor is rated for 100 percent duty cycle, meaning it never stops producing the air that is required. With VMAC's WHASP tank technology, both the air and oil are cooled in this fully integrated package, eliminating the need for bulky accessories. And with the constant and smooth air delivery of the VMAC rotary screw air end, most customers will not require a large cumbersome receiver tank.
