Brigade Electronics offers a line of radar ob-
stacle detection systems. All four models of
the Backsense radar system divide a specified
detection area into five zones and provide a
visual and audible warning when objects enter
the hazard area. The cab display includes five
LEDs corresponding to each of the five dis-
tance zones from the vehicle. A warning buzzer
has an adjustable sound level of 65 to 90 dB.
The manufacturer says the sensor is impervious
to water, dust, and mud. The system controls
the radar beam pattern, so the spread of the
beam can be restricted to the desired width
to minimize false alerts. Detection areas up to
nearly 100 feet are available.

Performance and efficiency with a fuel economy that will
blow you away. Using half as much fuel as similar rigs, the
Atlas Copco FlexiROC T45 also comes with 50 percent fewer
hoses and 70 percent fewer couplings for easier maintenance
and reduced risk of leakage.

Tier 4 final loaders
Case Construction Equipment offers Tier 4 final loader options with its
821F and 921F wheel loaders. Each is equipped with a selective catalytic
reduction (SCR)-only solution that treats emissions separately with Diesel
Exhaust Fluid (DEF) and does not require the engine to recirculate exhaust
gas. Case says this optimizes combustion and machine performance, lowers
engine temperatures, and eliminates maintenance and downtime associated
with filter replacement and regeneration. The loaders sport a 6.7-liter Tier
4 final engine. The 821F and 921F loaders produce 212 and 241 net peak
horsepower, respectively. The 821F features a bucket range from 3.2 to 4.5
cubic yards, while the 921F has a bucket range from 3.8 to 4.75 cubic yards.

Reduces need for
McLanahan Corp. says its deep cone thickener helps
producers do more with their existing resources by
reducing or eliminating the need for settling ponds
and other structures. They are meant to achieve the
highest solids concentration possible through gravity
separation. A full-time operator is not necessary.
