December 2017 | 18 marketplace | continued Lighter yet more powerful Vanair touts its new Reliant RS45 air compressor as being 55 percent lighter than its predecessor and having the highest cubic-feet-per-minute rating in its class. It also says it cut the weight of its Reliant RS85 in half while delivering 40 percent more power. Both hydraulically driven compressors' canopies are made of aluminum, which prevents rust and helps reduce weight and fuel consumption. The RS45 delivers up to 45 cubic feet per minute of air power and 150 pounds per square inch of pressure. The RS85, which weighs 238 pounds, delivers 85 cubic feet per minute of air power. Boosting drill production John Deere says it has upgraded its PA15B and PA30B planetary auger attachments to be more powerful and produc- tive. They are part of Deere's B-Series Worksite Pro attachments for skid steers, compact track loaders, compact excavators and compact wheel loaders. Deere boosted the hydraulic motor's operating pressure to 3,100 pounds per square inch to increase digging power for both models. The augers work with such bit styles and diameters as standard 4- to 6-inch, 9- to 12-inch rock and frost, and 18- to 36-inch tree and shrub. Adding extra platform capacity Genie has unleashed a slew of improvements to its aerial work platform models under the XC label. The XC stands for "extra capacity," and the company has added four telescopic boom models to the XC lineup – the S-60 XC, S-65 XC, S-80 XC and S-85 XC. It also introduces its first XC articulated boom model in North America, the Z-45 XC. All five models now have a greater lift capacity, of 660 pounds unrestricted and 1,000 pounds restricted. They are also designed to meet future American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards for aerial work platforms.
