New Products

Beta Max Inc.
Melbourne, Fla.

New Products for Masonry Contractors

Designed for attaching hoists to conventional walk-through frame scaffold that utilize either seven- or eight-foot cross braces, the Beta Max Scaff-Trac hangs just under the horizontal members of the frame scaffold, allowing a load to be rolled back into the scaffold for unloading. Multiple pin configurations are available, allowing the user flexibility to mount the system to most brands of frame scaffold. The Scaff-Trac allows a maximum lifting capacity of 1,200 lbs. and a cantilever of 3-1/2 feet. Also, unlimited system lengths are obtainable using seven-foot Scaff-Trac extensions. For more information, call (800) 233-5112, or visit www.betamaxhoist.com.

Hilti Inc.
Tulsa, Okla.

New Products for Masonry Contractors

Ideal for solid base materials, such as grout-filled and hollow block, stone and brick, the HIT HY 150 MAX offers up to 20 percent higher load capacities than the HIT HY 150 and may be used in oversized holes up to 1/4-inch larger than the rod diameter. Packed in dual-fill containers, the HIT HY 150 MAX features an innovative new mixer helix and connector, which reduce dispensing forces and optimize mixing quality. It also features an improved temperature range (14 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit or -10 to 40 degrees Celsius) and an increased curing speed, which helps reduce installation time. For more information: in the United States, call (800) 879-8000, or visit www.us.hilti.com; or from Canada, call (800) 363-4458, or visit www.ca.hilti.com.

Manitou North America
Waco, Texas

New Products for Masonry Contractors

Manitou's MVT 665T has been specifically designed for handling heavy loads in the building and industrial industries. The MVT 665T has been upgraded with a tier 2 Perkins 1104C-44 Turbo engine, producing 101 hp, and also benefits from a two-speed hydrostatic transmission, which gives great flexibility and very precise movement when working. The performance of the MVT 665T has been upgraded as well: the drawbar pull has been increased to 22,700 lbs. (at low speed); increased maneuverability (two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and crab steering); not to mention the user's comfort and good visibility through the wide windows.

Mustang Manufacturing Company Inc.
Owatonna, Minn.

New Products for Masonry Contractors

Mustang has introduced two new skid-steer loader models — the 2026 and 2041 models — that maintain the compact size of their predecessors, yet offer higher capacities and more features. With SAE-rated operating loads of 1,050 and 1,350 lbs., respectively, the 2026 and 2041 were designed specifically to meet requests from customers seeking more power from even smaller machines. The 2026 — now the smallest unit in the Mustang line in terms of dimensions — remains strong with 35 hp at 2,600 rpm, while the 2041 boasts 46 hp at 2,600 rpm. Both models continue to offer many Mustang features, including a choice of controls, the Multi-TachTM universal attachment mounting system, tilt-back ROPS for easy maintenance and an operator-restraint bar with armrests.
