ConExpo-Con/Agg preview | part 2 Sneak peek: See more of what the big show has in store BOMAG, booth 50675 BOMAG will showcase tangential oscillation on its new BW 161 ADO-4 tandem roller. This established exciter system has been optimized in key areas for increased compaction production. Coordination of the exciter system to drum weight ratios is the basis for BOMAG's tangential oscillation. This compaction technology targets bridge structures, close proximity to buildings, and intermediate and finish rolling applications. With TanGO always directed horizontally, it maintains continuous ground contact and efficient compaction is often evident after a few passes. The interaction of TanGO oscillation from the rear drum and traditional vibration from the front drum provides advantages on difficult to compact asphalt mixes. Caterpillar, booth 10915 (North Hall) and 1015 (Gold Lot) Cat will showcase the new M Series wheel loaders, which will launch throughout 2014. The series will eventually include the 966M, 972M, 980M, 982M, 950M and 962M. The 972M and 966M are XE designated models, which deliver a fuel efficiency gain of 25 percent when compared to the predecessor K Series. The M series overall offers 10 percent better fuel efficiency. The medium size wheel loaders all feature Tier 4 Final engines, Caterpillar's Regeneration System, a standard lock-up clutch torque converter matched with engine power and hydraulics and a planetary transmission with a new split-flow oils system that uses multi-viscosity oil.
