Page 14 of 75 | December 2017 15 marketplace | by Don McLoud | Skid-steer attachments made for excavators Caterpillar has introduced a universal coupler designed for use with 4-ton, 5-ton and 8-ton compact excavators. The new Cat Mini Hydraulic Excavator Universal Coupler allows for skid-steer attachments to be used and changed quickly on excavators. The coupler either pins to the stick or can be picked up with Cat's Dual Lock Coupler. Manual handles lock the tools in place. Attachments compatible with the coupler include bale spears, pallet forks, and multi- and general-purpose buckets. Handles challenging jobsites Case Construction Equipment has debuted its seventh C-Series model compact excavator, the CX30C, which has an operating weight of 6,020 pounds and a bucket digging force of 4,520 pounds. Powered by a 24.8-horsepower Tier 4 Final engine, the compact excavator can handle challenging jobsites but is small enough to operate in confi ned areas, the company says. It can also be towed by a pickup truck in most jurisdictions without the need of a commercial driver's license. JCB has designed its new compact track loaders, the 210T and 215T, for work- ing in confi ned spaces yet still able to lift a pallet of sod or brick. The machines weigh less than 10,000 pounds each and have 74-horsepower JCB Diesel by Kohler engines that require no diesel particu- late fi lter or diesel exhaust fl uid. The radial-lift 210T has a rated operating capacity of 1,900 pounds at 35 percent of tipping load and 2,650 pounds at 50 percent. The vertical-lift 215T has a rated operat- ing capacity of 2,100 pounds at 35 percent tipping load and 3,000 pounds at 50 percent. CONFINED SPACE MOVERS EDITOR'S PICK EDITOR'S PICK
