Caterpillar introduces the Cat TL1255C Telehandler

The Cat TL1255C Telehandler, the largest machine in the new C Series range, has a maximum lift capacity of 5,443 kilograms (12,000 lbs) and a maximum lift height of 16.6 metres (54.3 ft). The TL1255C Telehandler is ideal for general construction and industrial markets.

The high-strength boom enables the TL1255C to handle job site loads and the large box sections are designed to handle the demands of the side tilt and swing carriages. High boom pivot and side-mounted power module ensure improved, all-around visibility. Job site productivity is enhanced due to the simultaneously extending telescopic boom.

The TL1255C’s Cat C4.4 ACERTM meets 4 Interim/Stage IIIB emissions regulations, developing 106 kiloWatts (142 hp).  It is specially designed for telehandler applications and can accommodate B20 biofuel. These diesel engines are built with Cat components that ensure smooth, quiet operation and long life. Fuel consumption is optimized to match operating applications, which lowers operating cost.

The TL1255C features the new Cat power shift transmission, which has 4 forward and 3 reverse gears. The transmission has clutch modulation fitted as standard, resulting in smooth gear change and increased operator comfort.

The cab is comfortable and stylish with a Cat full-suspension seat and improved job-site visibility. A pilot-operated, single lever joystick combines boom crowd and lift functions with an adjustable, two-position button for work tool tilt.

A range of Cat work tools extends the versatility of the machines. A high visibility manual IT coupler comes as standard, with the option of a hydraulic quick coupler to allow work tool changes without leaving the cab.

Service points are readily accessible and major components are at ground level. Service access points are conveniently located under the engine cover, and routine daily maintenance is now reduced to checking fluid levels and a walk-around inspection. The TL1255C Telehandler is easier to maintain and benefits from the Cat dealer support network.

Kenco Model KL12000 Barrier Lift

The Kenco Barrier Lift can be used on any concrete median barriers, sound walls, curbing & piling. It can also be used to align barriers that have already been placed.

  • Fully automatic grab and release action allows hands free operation.
  • Ready for immediate operation on any type or model of machine with lifting capabilities. No need to attach additional hydraulics. It hooks up with a typical sling and shackle assembly (not included).
  • Handles on both sides allow ground laborers to guide the lifter into position.
  • Huge 6 by 36 inch elastomer pads grip the sidewalls to provide superior performance, even in wet weather.
  • A wide 6 to 12 inch grip range handles several types of wall.
  • Pad angles swivel to match the slope of the wall to be lifted.

Available with optional self-aligning guides. The guides extend down from one set of the pads to allow the lifter to align itself with the barrier wall whenever the lifter is lowered into position. This optional feature can also be purchased separately for earlier models of the Kenco barrier lift. Models are available in capacities from 1500 to 40,000 pounds.

SK35SR Is KOBELCO’s Smallest Model with Integrated Noise and Dust Reduction Cooling System (iNDr

KOBELCO Construction Machinery has enhanced their SK35SR model. It is now the company’s smallest model to feature their exclusive Integrated Noise and Dust Reduction Cooling System (iNDr). The newly redesigned, SK35SR model offers full-size performance with short-radius capabilities, quiet operation and exceptional performance features. Prior to the SK35SR, KOBELCO’s iNDr system was only available in larger-model excavators.

This compact, robust machine incorporates KOBELCO’s iNDr technology into an advanced dual arrangement cooling system – the iNDr and eco-friendly system (iNDr+E). KOBELCO’s iNDr+E feature utilizes the same high-tech iNDr system found in the company’s conventional excavators but differs by directing the muffler exhaust underneath the machine. In addition, the SK35SR’s cooling system suppresses the machine’s noise to a low 76 decibels.

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.

Equipment Theft on the Rise

Ontario Provincial Police estimate that 15 to 20 million dollars worth of heavy construction equipment is stolen in that province alone each year. According to CBC News, across Canada the cost to the industry for heavy equipment theft is estimated at 46 million dollars per year. Organized crime has moved onto building sites, CBC says, and as a result, stolen Canadian equipment and materials are ending up everywhere from Russia to the Middle East.

Individual thieves and crime rings whose sole business is stealing heavy equipment access unattended jobsites, load equipment onto trailers and haul it away to resell to unsuspecting buyers, or dismantle the equipment to sell the parts, or they illegally export the heavy equipment to buyers overseas.
