New Vermeer trommel allows for production of three products

Vermeer has introduced the TR620 trommel screen that allows for an optional third product conveyor, and which will handle the majority of screening needs for compost, mulch, aggregate and topsoil producers, in a compact design for sites with limited space.

“This new trommel screen can fit into a smaller space than our other models, which is a requirement for customers who have a limited amount of space on their site,” said Jeff Bradley, product manager for recycling and forestry at Vermeer. “We listened to contractors who told us they wanted a trommel that could produce three separate products without running the material through the machine twice. That is why we developed the optional third conveyor.”

Put To the Test: TEREX CC 8800-1 Crawler Crane with Boom Booster Kit Erects Wind Turbine with Ease

The Terex Boom Booster kit is a lattice boom structure with a width of 10 meters (32.8 ft) and a length of up to 72 meters (236 ft) that is designed to increase the lifting capacity of Terex CC 8800-1 crawler cranes. Terex Cranes developed the kit specifically for application scenarios with large loads and long boom systems, which is characteristic of the requirements involved in erecting large wind turbines. “It’s as if the kit had been designed specifically for our project at Windpark Noordoostpolder. Needless to say, that’s why we decided to try it out there,” says Sarens project manager Hendrik Sanders. Sarens’ client, ENERCON, had asked for a Terex CC 9800 lattice boom crane, but the latter was not available at the time due to Sarens’ large workload. Because of this, Sarens instead offered the customer a CC 8800-1 crane in combination with a Boom Booster kit, which, when configured as required for the lifts at the wind farm, would make it possible to reach the lifting capacities of the next higher crane class without a problem. The increased reach means that the Boom Booster kit is further enhancing the versatility of Sarens’ fleet, which has a total of six CC 8800-1 crawler cranes.

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.

Skid-Steer & Compact Track Loaders

New Terex Generation 2 Loaders Boast More Than 100 Upgrades, Build On Popular Features

Terex introduced its new line of skid steer loaders and compact track loaders specifically designed for rental stores and contractors working in site preparation, construction, landscaping, infrastructure development and demolition applications. Based on proven designs and engineering, the new Terex Generation 2 (GEN2) loaders feature more than 100 enhancements from the previous models and are available in radial and vertical lift-path patterns with rated operating capacities (ROC) ranging from 665 to 3,600 pounds. These features combine to offer operators powerful machine productivity on every jobsite and equipment owners a high return on investment.

As part of the company’s continuous improvement methodology, many of the enhancements to the Terex GEN2 loader lines are aimed at increasing machine performance through additional ROC and loader breakout forces, while increasing durability and reliability in the field, which reduces the cost of ownership during the life of the loader.
