Case's new C Series motor graders provide feature-driven solutions for municipalities and small-to-mid-size site prep contractors
Case Construction Equipment has introduced two new C Series motor graders which deliver a wide offering of new weights, horsepower ratings and feature-driven grading solutions for municipalities, as well as small-to-mid-size site prep, road-maintenance and general construction businesses. These new motor grader models feature a variety of standard features designed to maximize productivity and performance. Available in both standard and All Wheel Drive (AWD) configurations, the 836C and 856C achieve Tier 4 Final compliance with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) engine technology that increases fuel efficiency, keeps exhaust temperatures down and eliminates the need for regeneration.
Getac announced that Leica Geosystems has selected its fully rugged ZX70 Android tablet as hardware of choice for the new Leica Zeno GG04 plus Tablet Solution. The new partnership will allow Leica Geosystems to bring comprehensive geospatial data collection capabilities to its customers in all terrains and weather conditions such as utilities, public services, transportation and construction.
Engcon has joined with Kobelco Construction Machinery and Leica Geosystems to provide an automatic height and tilt function on its Kobelco tiltrotators. Engcon is the world's leading manufacturer of tiltrotators - a kind of tilting and rotating quick coupler for excavators.
Drones continue to be a growing part of the construction industry, and efforts to collect and process the data collected by unmanned aerial vehicles have expanded with the release of new tools by solutions provider Airware. Designed around a secure, cloud-based platform, Airware leverages machine learning and artificial intelligence to help quarries digitize their business and improve operations with visualization, collaboration, analysis and reporting on drone-captured data.
Hexagon has introduced the Leica Rugby CLH and Leica Rugby CLA lasers. This next generation of lasers offer the unique capability to adapt to user application needs through software upgrades – an industry first, according to the company.
John Deere will have a strong emphasis on SmartGrade technology, which has been added to the new 104-hp 650K crawler dozer, joining the 700K, 750K and 850K. The integrated Topcon 3D-MC2 Grade Control System improves jobsite accuracy and work quality, delivering precise grading performance while eliminating vulnerable external masts and cables.
Excavators equipped with 2D or 3D excavator guidance solutions from Leica Geosystems and tilt rotators supported by SVAB Quantum can now use a new functionality, iXE CoPilot, that enables the tilt function on a tilt rotator to be handled automatically. The tilt will automatically be adjusted so it is held parallel to the surface as the operator pulls in the excavator arm.
Heavy construction has come a long way when it comes to grade control and measurement. Gone are the days when ensuring an excavation was progressing correctly involved a surveyor with a grade rod manually checking slopes throughout the project.
