Cat cold planers designed for production, maneuverability

Cat cold planers designed for production, maneuverability

The new Cat PM820, PM822, and PM825 Cold Planers are designed to be highly productive, highly maneuverable, half-lane milling machines capable of controlled full-depth removal of asphalt and concrete pavements in a single pass. Operating weights for the new models range from 36 130 to 37 500 kg (79,630 to 82,650 lb.), and cutting widths from 2 010 to 2 505 mm (79 to 98.6 in.). All three new machines use the Cat C18 ACERT engine, rated at 563 kW (755 hp), meeting EPA Tier 4-Final/EU Stage IV emission standards, and iso-mounted to reduce vibration.

Volvo releases Compact Assist for Soil, providing real-time operator feedback for fast, accurate soil compaction

Compact Assist for Soil offers real-time guidance to the operator by displaying number of passes and Compaction Meter Value (CMV), showing operators the exact number of passes across the entire work area, as well as whether those areas have reached sufficient compaction. This real-time guidance ensures operators of any skill level will easily spot gaps in coverage and won't spend time on unnecessary passes once the soil is sufficiently compacted.

Intelligent Compaction, How Volvo is preparing for the new norm in paving

Real-time, visualized pass mapping and temperature mapping allow operators to ensure that they get 100 percent uniformity across the mat, avoiding over- or under-compaction, which is detrimental to road quality.

One of the most recent technological innovations in paving equipment is Intelligent Compaction (IC). IC features pass mapping and temperature mapping technology, which gives operators real-time information, including how many passes they have made over a certain area and the temperature across the mat. With its capabilities, IC offers opportunities to dramatically reduce the guesswork and improve quality control by the operator during the paving process. The value of IC is well recognized by many states and agencies in the U.S. but adoption in Canada has not taken off.

​New Compact Crusher Range to be Unveiled at Steinexpo 2017

McCloskey's new I34 Impactors are designed for compactness and high mobility, capable of moving while crushing in small spaces. The lines' small footprint (less than 2.5 m wide) is uniquely suited to the demolition and asphalt recycling industry, aggregates and smaller scale construction projects, and for easy transport from site to site.

PETERBOROUGH, ON -July 28, 2017 - McCloskey International's expanding crusher line now includes compact crushers, which will make their worldwide debut in Europe's largest basalt quarry at Steinexpo 2017, held from August 31 - September 2, 2017 in Homburg/Nieder-Ofleiden, Germany. Situated in a 1400m2 stand in Demo Area C, Stand C17, the position will allow visitors to witness the power of McCloskey equipment in action, as well as explore new products on the stand.

Updated sealcoating pumps for asphalt trucks

Neal Manufacturing, a division of Blastcrete Equipment Company, has launched its new Generation IV pumps. The pumps offer improved durability as well as enhanced spraybars and require less frequent routine maintenance than their predecessor, resulting in greater uptime and productivity. Road pavement maintenance contractors also save money since they can retrofit their existing asphalt trucks with the new Neal pumps Gen IV rather than purchase a new truck.

Tier 4 engine powers paver truck and meets emissions regulations

The new M310CS truck-mounted slurry seal and micro surfacing paver from Bergkamp Inc. receives power from the Tier 4 truck engine that fulfills stringent emissions regulations. Based on customer feedback, Bergkamp developed the M310CS with the same proven design, efficiency and productivity as its M310 paver, but with PTO-driven hydraulic pumps that allow elimination of the side engine. This feature, along with the Tier 4 truck engine technology, allows customers to reduce their emissions reporting and equipment maintenance needs.
