Liebherr to bring ADT to market in 2021

Liebherr recently provided Heavy Equipment Guide with an up-close look at the development of its new 30-ton articulated dump trucks at its development and demonstration centre in Kirchdorf, Germany. Liebherr has plans to put its new 30-ton articulated dump trucks (ADT) into its company's rental fleet starting mid-year and make the first unit – the TA 230 – available for sale to European end users in 2021. North American customers can expect to see it for the first time in 2021, when it will be available in dealer rental fleets. The company says it will expand its lineup to include both 40- and 45-ton models, which will be introduced at the 2022 Bauma show in Munich. 

Canadian compaction solution shows solid paving potential

A new asphalt compactor that has been tested on Canadian highways and bridges for years is one step closer to becoming a marketable product. Called the AMIR TRAK, the machine uses rubber tracks instead of steel drums to achieve better densities in less passes and better permeability leading to less aggregate loss.

Mini pavers offer unique features tailored to small jobs

Small asphalt paving machines occupy a comfortable, valuable and identifiable niche in the paving equipment market. The smaller, commercial class of pavers – basically anything 16,000 pounds or less – often get relegated to the side when discussing asphalt paving. The larger, mainline highway-grade pavers appear to be where innovation and technological advances flourish.
