Chicago Pneumatic Red Hawk PDF Print

Chicago Pneumatic introduces its new gas powered breaker, the Red Hawk. This is a tough and easy to handle tool that doesn´t depend on an external power source with hoses or cables attached.
It is an ideal tool for quick jobs and easy portability, such as use in breaking concrete, cutting asphalt, tamping and compacting soil, driving posts, fences, rods or spikes, in soil sampling and in driving profiles and tubes. Transportation to and from a worksite is a piece of cake in a van or the back of a car. 

The vibration level is unmatched in this tool class: 2,4 m/s2 is by far the lowest level on  the market. Thanks to new vibration-dampening handles, a slim body design and a low service weight of 50 pounds (22.5 kg), Red Hawk is a tool that offers maximum ergonomic protection and easy handling for the operator.

An easy engine start, due to efficient choke control and carburettor, rounds off a state of the art product that completes the Chicago Pneumatic handheld product range.

Since 1901, Chicago Pneumatic has been well-known for its pneumatic tools. In 2008 a wide range of Chicago Pneumatic handheld hydraulic tools has been added and the new gas powered Red Hawk breaker is now rounding off the handheld range.

New Holland Zero-Turn-Radius Mowers PDF Print

New Holland has introduced a new series of zero-turn-radius mowers to its commercial mower line. The new G5000 Series commercial zero-turn-radius mowers have a number of industry-leading features that provide smooth, fast mowing.

The mower deck is mounted to the front axle, rather than the frame, allowing the deck to float over changes in ground contour for a clean cut without scalping. With a pivoting front axle that allows 5.5 inches of travel on each side, the G5000 Series provides a smooth cut on uneven terrain.

A massive 149-square-inch discharge opening more than doubles the industry standard to allow grass clippings to spread evenly in an eight-foot pattern without bunching or clumping. Each blade overlaps 1½ inches to prevent streaking. The deep-tunnel deck design eliminates deck packing and directs clippings away from the cutting edge enabling a high volume of clippings to be discharged. This design allows for an excellent cut even in tall grass.

G5000 mowers are built for durability with a high-strength channel frame and seven-gauge mower deck. Powered by efficient Kawasaki air-cooled gas engines, the G5030 is a 27 hp model with a 54-inch or 60-inch mower deck. The G5035 is a 31 hp model with a 66-inch mower deck. Both have twin six-gallon fuel tanks for all- day mowing.

Bobcat E80 Excavator PDF Print

Bobcat Company introduces the E80 excavator, a machine with a completely new design that sets a high standard by increasing service intervals, operator comfort and durability. Everything about the E80 excavator has been created to keep operators working longer, including the elimination of daily service points; a spacious cab and a top-of-the-line seat to keep operators working comfortably; and polymer shims to decrease wear on the lateral pins.

Longer service intervals
Daily greasing of the bushings at the boom, arm and bucket pivot is a thing of the past with the E80 excavator. Normally, this process takes up to 30 minutes of an operator’s time each day. Now, the operator will be able to spend that time working because the E80 has increased the service interval of greasing the bushings to 250 hours.

Operator comfort
The E80 revolutionizes operator comfort by offering a spacious cab with an operator seat that adjusts six ways and a heating and air conditioning system that has true automotive-style controls. These features have been designed to keep operators who spend many hours in their machines comfortable and productive.

The top-of-the-line seat allows the operator to create an individually designed ergonomic work environment. The operator can adjust the seat in six ways:
•    The angle of the bottom of the seat.
•    The bottom of the seat may be moved forward or reverse.
•    The lumbar support on the backrest.
•    The bottom and backrest of the seat may be moved forward or reverse as one.
•    The armrests and joysticks may be moved forward or reverse, independent of the seat.
•    The seat bottom, seat backrest, armrests and joysticks may be moved forward or reverse as one group.

With these adjustments, operators of any size can adjust the seat to their personal preference in the placement of the armrests, joysticks and seat bottom and back. These adjustments also let the operator move the seat to an area where the operator can best control the foot pedals and see the work area.

The high-capacity climate-control system has true automotive-style controls and vents in front of and to the rear of the operator, placing the air movement exactly where needed. This system has five modes of air placement: to the operator’s upper body from the front and rear, to the upper body from the front only, to the feet and upper body from the front, to the feet from the front, and to the feet and the upper body from the front and the rear.

A fixed instrument panel on the right side of the cab is a central, easy-to-read display for all of the information the operator needs on machine performance.

Attachment readiness and pin durability
Each E80 is delivered clamp ready for operators who want to quickly and easily add and use a clamp.

In addition to clamps, Bobcat provides a number of attachments available for use on the E80. The optional pin coupler system allows the operator to quickly change between attachments. Bobcat also provides a platform for attachments previously used on the 442, allowing owners who have a 442 to use the attachments they already own on the E80.

Polymer shims are used in lateral joints to create tightness and prevent slop in attachments, such as buckets. Slop is created by wear on the pins, and the polymer shims used in the joints decrease pin wear and increase tightness in the attachment workgroup.

Fuel use
The E80 has a 54.2-horsepower Tier-compliant engine. While this engine provides substantial power to complete work, it doesn’t mean contractors will waste a lot of extra fuel. The engine control system also has an auto-idle feature, reducing fuel consumption when the excavator is not working. Engine rpm is controlled electronically so that the operator uses only as much engine power necessary for the application. The quiet operation of the engine is also a benefit, as many cities and work areas are becoming more sensitive to construction noise.

Additional features
With minimal tail swing, the E80 can work in compact work environments and next to buildings or other obstructions. The E80 features the Bobcat in-track swing frame. The swing frame for the boom stays within the width of the tracks, also making it easier for the E80 to work in constricted job conditions.

The E80 has a dig depth of 15 feet 6 inches and an operating weight of 18,880 pounds with rubber tracks. The auxiliary hydraulic system has a rated capacity of 31.7 gallons per minute.

JLG Launches Two Compact Telehandlers PDF Print
JLG Launches Two New Compact Telehandlers

McConnellsburg, Pa., April 2, 2009 – JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE: OSK], announced today that it has expanded its offering of compact telehandler with two new models. The JLG® 619A and 723A will be sold for use in landscaping, construction and agricultural applications.  The 619A provides nearly 6,000 lb. of capacity at the maximum reach height of 19 ft., while the 723A allows nearly 7,000 lb. at a height of 23 ft.  Both models are equipped with all-wheel-steer.

“The compact dimensions of these machines provide the maneuverability necessary for loading or unloading mulch, transporting hay bales or moving pallets on a crowded jobsite,” said Brian Boeckman, JLG Product Parent for Telehandlers. “Equipment operators in these applications will enjoy a spacious cab with a comfortable suspension seat and tilt steering, designed to optimize comfort and visibility.”

In addition to the compact size and premium cab, these models include a single joystick control design tha
t combines smoother and more precise control with the speed operators need for peak performance when picking or placing loads. The controls feature a standard lift/loader mode feature that allows the operator to switch the primary function of the “X-axis” from controlling the telescopic function of the boom to controlling the tilt or dump function of the attachment. This feature combined with a variety of available attachments and the ability to utilize skid steer attachments, further increases the versatility of these models.

These models will complement the existing G5-18A creating a JLG branded line-up of three compact telehandlers and eleven construction models. With the launch of these models, JLG will discontinue the G5-19A and G6-23A.
