Excavator designed for heavy-duty applications Kobelco Construction Machinery USA introduces its SK350LC crawler excavator to North America. The 81,800-pound model was engineered for heavy-duty applications. Its 270-horsepower, Tier 4 HINO engine is said to be fuel efficient and deliver significant operational cost savings for a machine in the unit's size class. An improved hydraulic system reduces energy loss, providing better all-around job performance. With three engine modes — heavy, standard, and economic — operators can switch between power and fuel consumption priorities through a one-button operation in the cab. The unit has a digging force of 50,582 pounds; a dig depth of 24 feet, 10 inches; a 1.57-2.09 cubic yard bucket; and a swing speed of 10.0 rpm. The unit also uses Kobelco's proprietary intelligent control system and is equipped with Komex, its machine operation management system. Kobelco | Steel-bottom dump trailer American Carrier Equipment offers a new ultra-high-tensile-strength steel bottom dump trailer. The result of two years of research, the new trailer is said to be 30-percent lighter, have 300-percent greater structural integrity, and accommodate 12.5-percent greater load capacity than competitive offerings. Standard features include fuel-saving super single tires and lightweight aluminum wheels. The trailer can be fitted with risers that extend the bed capacity, allowing it to haul larger volumes of lighter-weight material. American Carrier Equipment | The detail speaks volumes Accuracy, speed, safety. The Topcon GLS-1500 laser scanner makes non-contacting pile mapping and volume calculation easy and highly accurate. With maximum mapping detail, and its simple workflow, your increased efficiency will speak louder than words. Get all the details.
