New Link-Belt 235 X3 Spin Ace Excavator now available

17.5% better fuel efficiency and 15% better lift capacity

The new Link-Belt 235 X3 Spin Ace Minimum Swing Radius Excavator is now available in North America in LC and Dozer models. This new model replaces the popular 225 Spin Ace minimum swing radius excavator. New features include an Interim Tier 4a Isuzu engine with 17.5% better fuel efficiency, a ROPS-certified cab with new interior and 7-inch color monitor, up to 15% more lift capacity, 7% faster cycle times and improved serviceability. The 235 X3 Spin Ace can be equipped with an optional auxiliary hydraulic system which allows the operator to change both pressure and flow settings from inside the cab, a real timesaver when working with a multitude of hydraulic tools.

The 235 X3 is equipped with an advanced, electronically-controlled Isuzu diesel engine to deliver unparalleled performance and power to respond to peak demands of heavy digging and lifting applications. This advanced engine is EPA certified to Interim Tier 4a standards utilizing cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) and diesel particulate filter technology (DPF). The 235 X3 features an all new Fuel Management System to squeeze every ounce of power from every drop of fuel. Technological advancements in engine electronics and enhancements to the hydraulic system have helped reduce fuel consumption by up to 17.5%. This intelligent new fuel efficiency system controls consumption by lowering engine rpm during non-critical functions. In combination with additional engine controls such as Auto-Idle, the advanced Fuel Management System lowers overall owning & operating costs like never before. With a high-pressure common-rail fuel injection system, there’s no wasted fuel with precision, electronically-controlled metering. A new variable geometry turbocharger provides high velocity air flow at lower rpm’s for clean, efficient combustion and power even when performing precision tasks at slower speeds.


Refinements to the X3 Series hydraulic system have resulted in gains in lift capacity up to 15% and up to 7% faster cycle times. Many of the innovative hydraulic features of generation’s past have been carried through to the new X3, including the smooth functionality of the open-centre design. At the end of the day, it’s better performance and more productivity.

Terex GEN2 R265T Compact Track Loader – Heavy-Duty Machine with a Light Footprint

Featuring a 74-hp turbocharged Tier 4 Final diesel engine with variable flow hydraulics for powerful productivity and quick cycle times, the new 2,650-pound rated operating capacity Terex R265T compact track loader is the newest member of the Terex Generation 2 (GEN2) loader line-up. Boasting a narrow machine width (70 inches), the R265T radial lift path compact track loader can easily maneuver and operate in confined or congested work sites, making it an ideal loader for rental stores and contractors working in site preparation, construction, landscaping, infrastructure development and demolition applications. Its purpose-built chassis is designed to be a heavy-duty machine within a compact package.

Proving it has the power and productivity to get the job done, the R265T loader has 221 ft-lb of peak torque, a tipping load of 7,571 pounds, a bucket breakout force of 5,800 pounds and a lift height of 125 inches, enabling it to get loading, picking and carrying, grading, back dragging or snow removal jobs done faster and more efficiently. Compact track loaders, like the R265T unit, engineered with a radial lift path – meaning the loader arms raise in an arc pattern – excel at digging and grading applications. Another benefit of the radial lift path configuration is the visibility around the unit it provides to operators, especially when working around existing infrastructure, such as homes and in backyards.

New Transmission Options for Freightliner 122SD

The Freightliner 122SD can now be spec’d with Allison 4700 Rugged Duty Series (RDS) and Oil Field Series (OFS) automatic transmissions. The combination of the 122SD with Allison’s vocational transmissions is ideal for tough off-road and oil field applications.

Better performance comes from such features as 2nd Reverse, which offers a second “deep reverse” in addition to the standard reverse; automatic shifts, which automatically and smoothly make the right shift at the right time; and greater startablity, which uses less torque to launch and go. Both transmissions are available with Detroit DD13, DD15 and DD16 and Cummins ISX heavy-duty engines.

Hilti PS 50 Multidetector Takes the Guesswork Out of Drilling Concrete

The new Hilti Multidetector PS 50 brings new depth to area scanning. The self-calibrating tool uses pulsed radar technology to detect a variety of concealed objects: ferrous and non-ferrous, wood or plastic and electrical conduits at depths up to 5-7/8 inches (15 cm) in concrete with high accuracy. Two additional sensors allow for the classification of those objects and the detection of live wire.

The PS 50 helps users drill right the first time by quickly and easily locating objects under the surface of structures which helps avoid costly repairs and saves time. Applications such as drilling anchor holes or through penetrations for pipe and cable installation; locating underfloor heating pipes or other pipe and cable runs; setting anchors in hollow or thermally activated slabs, can be performed with minimized risk.
