CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 EXHIBITORS TO FOCUS ON SOLUTIONS ADDRESSING INDUSTRY CHALLENGES

Alot has changed since CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 – a global pandemic, supply chain interruptions, economic uncertainty, and skilled worker shortages are a few of the challenges that our industry has experienced in the last three years. In this landscape, dialing in to the needs of contractors is more important than ever, and manufacturers have stepped up to deliver exciting advancements in equipment and technology to give contractors an edge.

Electrification and alternative drives is a big one – electric compact machines were novel attractions at CONEXPO-CON/ AGG 2020, with just a few models working out in the field at that time. More manufacturers have jumped into this space since 2020, and simplified maintenance and flexibility to work in sensitive environments have made these machines a darling of the rental industry. Expect to see even more electric equipment, and other alternative power options, such as hydrogen, in greater prominence at CONEXPO 2023 and beyond.

Machine control and telematics have grown substantially in popularity on heavy iron. These tools were established in the industry long before CONEXPO 2020, but contractors’ ability to leverage the data that flows to and from these connected machines is becoming more sophisticated. More information, whether sent from the office to the machine, from the machine to the office, between workers on the job site, and through other connected technologies, such as drones, means that everyone involved in the construction process has more actionable information at their fingertips. Look for more emphasis on job site connectivity at CONEXPO 2023 and demonstrations that show how this data can make your projects more efficient.

A good operator can be hard to find – and that has become more true over the past couple of years. We’ve noticed an uptick in focus on the operator in two respects: cab comfort aimed at improving operator experience, and technology, such as automation of some functions, that is designed to get new operators up to speed with more precision and skilled operators working more efficiently. Look for manufacturers to emphasize the incab experience that is so important for retaining the operators who make the machine their office.

Finally, not every job site requires equipment with all of the latest technology, and manufacturers are making it easy for contractors to select a workhorse machine with limited premi-

um features. Look for an emphasis on value at CONEXPO-CON/ AGG 2023.

A lot has changed since CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, but some things stay the same – connecting in person to touch and demo the latest equipment and technology, and forge relationships with others, remains of paramount value. If you’re attending the show, don’t forget your walking shoes – the expanded footprint now includes the Diamond Lots and West Hall – and if you’re not attending, stay tuned to heavyequipmentguide.ca and our social channels throughout the week for all the big announcements and highlights. For now, we’re excited to show you what’s coming this March – for an advance look at what to expect, check out our CONEXPO-CON/ AGG 2023 show preview in this issue.

DOOSAN REBRANDS AS DEVELON

From a list of more than one hundred options, and after considering how a name would translate globally and culturally, the powers that be decided Doosan Infracore will be rebranded as DEVELON going forward. The new brand is essentially a combination of “develop onward.”

Todd Roecker, vice president of growth initiatives explains, “What identified with us, and what we’re trying to do as a company, what we’re trying to do within the industry, is really focusing on the future. Looking at a 10-year, 20-year plan and really what that means is, how can we continue to develop onward.”

The new brand was revealed at a small gathering of media and company executives at World of Concrete in Las Vegas, Nevada. DEVELON will take advantage of the maximum exposure offered at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 to be the major launching pad of the new brand and provide the first opportunity for customers to see it in person, along with the latest developments in the Concept-X autonomous equipment solution that it has been developing over the last few years. Its booth will be adorned with the new DEVELON logo and colour scheme, as will the equipment on display.

Machines bearing the new badging will roll off the assembly line starting in March this year and are expected to be available in the North American market in the second quarter. Dealers are also in the process of re-branding signage and sales and marketing materials. Roecker adds, “And of course our customization plant in Savannah, Georgia, will start to do some rebranding as well in March, so our customers and the dealers will start to see them in early to mid Q2.”

The sale of Doosan Infracore to HD Hyundai in August 2021 provided the opportunity for the brand change.

SKID-STEER LOADER INVENTORS INDUCTED INTO NATIONAL INVENTORS HALL OF FAME

Cyril and Louis Keller, the brothers who invented the world’s first compact loader, later named the Bobcat skid-steer loader, have been selected as 2023 inductees for the National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHF).

In the 1950s, brothers Cyril (April 8, 1922 – Oct. 28, 2020) and Louis (May 9, 1923 – July 11, 2010) operated a small machinist-blacksmith shop in Minnesota together, building and repairing machinery for local farmers. A farmer approached them with a need for a self-propelled loader light enough to be lifted to the second floor of a turkey barn and small enough to clean around the barn’s upright poles. In 1957, the Kellers built a three-wheeled loader with two drive wheels in front and a caster wheel in the rear – the precursor to the modern skidsteer loader.

The loader came to the attention of Melroe Manufacturing Company (now Bobcat Company), which invited the Kellers to demonstrate their invention in their booth at the Minnesota State Fair in 1958. After a successful demonstration at the fair, the Melroe Manufacturing Company was awarded exclusive manufacturing rights to the machine on a royalty basis and hired the Keller brothers to refine the design and put the machine into production.

To improve the design of the loader, a second set of drive wheels was added to the back of the loader in 1960. With this four-wheel drive, the M400 became the world’s first skid-steer loader. “Skid-steer” describes the unique steering system, which enables the machine to turn within its own length. Later, the Bobcat brand name was established because of the machine’s quickness and agility.

BUILT ROBOTICS ACQUIRES ROIN TECHNOLOGIES

Built Robotics has acquired Roin Technologies. The acquisition aims to increase the capabilities of Built Robotics’ engineering team and help accelerate automation technology developments beyond construction applications. Construction costs have slowed the building of infrastructure, clean energy, transportation, and housing. Built Robotics aims to combat that issue by creating autonomous technology to lessen the impact of labour shortages.

As part of the acquisition, Roin’s CEO, Jim Delaney, will join Built’s engineering team. The technologies underlying Roin’s automated power trowel and shotcrete robot will be integrated into Built Robotics’ systems. Engineering efforts will focus on Built’s existing and future product lines.

TRIMBLE ACQUIRES RYVIT

Ryvit helps users integrate data and coordinate their workflows for greater project visibility by processing data records between different construction partners. These integrations will be supported as part of Trimble Construction One, with the offerings from Ryvit rebranding to Data Xchange and App Xchange.

TIRE MADE OF 90 PERCENT SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has unveiled a demonstration tire comprised of 90 percent sustainable materials. The tire contains 17 different ingredients, 90 percent of which come from sustainable sources. The tire has passed applicable regulatory testing as well as Goodyear’s internal testing. The tests have shown that the tire has a lower rolling resistance when compared to the reference tire made with traditional materials. Bringing a 90 percent sustainable-material tire to market will require further collaboration with Goodyear’s supply base to identify the scale necessary for these sustainable materials to produce the tire at high volumes.

VOLVO CE ELECTRIC WHEEL LOADER INVESTMENT STEPS TOWARD FOSSIL-FREE FUTURE

Volvo CE will invest around $6.3 million into electric wheel loader production at its Arvika factory in Sweden. The facility specializes in medium and large wheel loader production. The investment will help build a new building, expand the current facility, and upgrade the manufacturing capabilities to allow for the phased manufacturing of electric wheel loaders.

While it has not yet been announced which Volvo CE wheel loaders will be electrified, the production of both electric wheel loaders and wheel loaders fitted with combustion engines will continue on the same production line.

CANADIAN BUYERS SEEK VALUE FROM THEIR FULL-SIZE EXCAVATORS

New excavators on the market these days are the most advanced they’ve ever been. There are a lot of unique features and options which take advantage of technology to improve reliability and efficiency. For contractors who aren’t after the most advanced features, today’s market is responding by providing contractors with a broad range of options.

According to Lee McMartin, vice president, construction/forestry with Wajax, many customers are seeking value at the core of their purchasing decisions. Wajax has been the sole Hitachi distributor coast to coast in Canada for three decades, but the newly formed direct Wajax–Hitachi partnership has opened

doors to new product and opportunities. Hitachi excavators that are becoming available through the partnership, McMartin said, are designed with that need for value in mind.

In a broad sense, Canada saw a slight decrease in the excavator market for 2022 due to supply chain issues. “A lot of business was created out of fear that there wouldn’t be anything available,” McMartin described.

Rental markets were challenged with availability, but with recession concerns, previous capital spend, and interest rates creeping higher McMartin suspects some clients will be looking to move back to rental purchase opportunities.

Regional demand will be project-driven with specific industry sectors influencing the excavator purchasing market, McMartin noted. Large cities are ramping up for public transportation projects, while oil and gas is behind much of the interest in the prairies and Northeastern B.C. Mining and general infrastructure seem to be holding consistent nationwide.

SAFETY AND EASE OF USE INFORM EXCAVATOR DECISIONS

When talking to potential excavator buyers, there are some specific requests that are top of mind for McMartin: reliability, safety, and support. In many ways, the decision-making process for buying full-size excavators comes down to profit versus expense, he said. That doesn’t necessarily mean buying the most tricked-out excavator on the dealer lot.

30 heavyequipmentguide.ca | FEBRUARY 2023
A lot of people are looking for simplicity. It’s bells and whistles that can potentially make machines less reliable and require more training that their operators may not have the time for.
EARTHMOVING

“Bells and whistles have almost played themselves out with some customers – it seems like a lot of people are looking for simplicity. It’s bells and whistles that can potentially make machines less reliable and require more training that their operators may not have the time for,” he said. “They’re looking for simplicity with reliability and performance – if a technology helps them and is easy to use, then there’s value in it for them.”

In Hitachi’s case, that comes down to technology that makes the machine more useful while saving money with no additional training or maintenance – technology like Hitachi’s TRIAS pump system. TRIAS uses three pumps to drive the hydraulics rather than two, which reduces loss of hydraulic drag in the system. That improves the excavator’s efficiency and saves money.

“By having a three-pump system you can actually have a pump dedicated to the attachment at the end of the stick while not taking away your ability to multifunction,” McMartin described.

TELEMATICS AN ATTRACTIVE ADDITION FOR CONTRACTORS

Machine control is not necessarily a basic requirement when it comes to new excavator purchases, McMartin noted, but telematics and operator assist features are attractive to many contractors.

Telematics adds the ability to check the use and performance of machines remotely, which gives owners added advantages

such as improved maintenance and easier connections with their dealers. Hitachi offers the ability to remotely monitor engine and hydraulic oil and intends to expand that to other fluids in the future.

The right maintenance program can extend the life of a machine, which is important to contractors, and telematics are a starting point toward that.

“Customers are looking for safety and ease of serviceability, for the ability to capture information on their machines a lot easier . . . relying on the telematics to give them the right information and help them understand when they should be doing maintenance,” McMartin said. “Telematics is a huge part of the maintenance schedule, along with understanding how their machines are operating and the fuel they are burning.”

That added knowledge improves the quality of service when dealers and other partners are involved. “How do we make things easier for a customer to solve a problem before sending a technician eight hours into the bush? By using telematics, we can best estimate what’s required and send the technician with the right product to complete the job,” McMartin said.

Looking ahead, McMartin and the Wajax team are excited for 2023 and Hitachi’s newest introductions to the North American market. These excavators are based on machines with a strong track record both in North America and throughout the world –and Hitachi is just getting started, McMaster suggested.

“We’re just scratching the surface on what the future holds for Wajax, Hitachi, and our customers,” he concluded. HEG

HOW TO MAINTAIN AND OPERATE A CTL WHEN YOU WORK IN EXTREME CONDITIONS

Extreme conditions – whether exceptionally hazardous terrain or very hot or cold temperatures – can present additional challenges when it comes to maintaining and operating a compact track loader (CTL). Here are a few key con siderations to keep in mind when working in tough conditions.

FREEZING TEMPERATURES

Lee Padgett, product manager for Takeuchi, recommends always referring to the operator’s manual for detailed mainte nance instructions and performing a walk-around inspection of the machine before starting it up.

“When starting the machine in cold weather, use proper warm-up procedures as found in the operator’s manual and always limit engine idling time,” Padgett says. “A cold weather kit, such as a block heater, can help promote proper engine warmup in regions where glow plugs and intake air heaters are not sufficient to effectively start the engine.”

Operators should also always make sure the windows and front glass are completely defrosted before operating. It can be

machine cooling. Refer to the operator’s manual to ensure your machine is prepared for the change in season and temperatures.

First, clean and inspect the radiator and hydraulic cooler. Additionally, remove the belly pans so you can properly clean the compact track loader’s tub, and then reinstall it before operating the machine. Often, this area becomes packed with mud and debris which can insulate components and prevent heat from dissipating efficiently.

“Keep an eye on the operating temperatures of engines and hydraulic components as well,” Padgett says. “This is especially important when operating hydraulically powered attachments in hot weather. Before operating the machine, consult your manual to learn your specific machine’s temperature guidelines.”

If the operating temperatures approach the upper end of your machine’s recommended range, remove the load until the machine has cooled. Then, take a few moments to clean and inspect the coolers again to ensure they are clear of debris.

“Your dealer can also be a valuable resource to not only make sure you have the right machine for the application, but to also advise of proper maintenance and care of the machine when operating in extreme temperatures,” Padgett says.

ed so you can effectively avoid them for greater peace of mind.” Respecting the terrain when operating should also be a key priority. Slopes and soft ground can cause a CTL to shift sud denly and become unstable. It can also impact the machine’s operating capacity and performance. It’s also important to first consult the operator’s manual before traversing up and down the face of a slope, as your ability to do so will be dictated by your CTL’s capabilities, as well as the load and attachment.

“On certain terrain, speed can be the difference in main taining machine control versus losing it,” Padgett says. “It’s best to travel with the load low and at a reasonable speed for the conditions.”

Working around water presents additional and unique haz ards, like ledges, water depth, and undercut banks. Crossing shallow water is sometimes necessary. As with all other opera tions, be sure of the terrain and exactly how deep the water is, what the bottom conditions are like, and if there is any current. Should operators need to cross water, they should never exceed the allowable water depth as instructed by the manufacturer, or let the engine, fan, or electrical components come in contact with the water.

“Understanding safe operational practices is a must, but it’s especially critical in any harsh or potentially dangerous

terrain,” Padgett says. “Make sure that the most seasoned operators are in control of the machine, otherwise it could lead to a dangerous situation for the operator and possibly damage

For comparison, a newly licensed teenage driver may be capable of driving a few miles to school; however, the same driver may not be qualified to drive a pickup truck and small travel trailer through a mountain pass. Both involve driving a vehicle, but one requires much more skill and experience than the other. If the operator feels uneasy about using the CTL on a certain terrain, it’s best to not take any chances.

“Be cautious and careful out there, whether in extreme temperatures or terrain,” Padgett says. “Because at the end of the day, getting home safe and unharmed is the most important

5 TIPS TO MAINTAIN ROTATING AND FIXED-BOOM TELEHANDLERS

As job sites become more congested and equipment and labour shortages continue to impact project schedules, rotating telehandlers have risen in popularity. But rotating telehandlers are still a relatively new concept in North America, even to those who regularly use telehandlers, so it’s understandable that equipment owners and users are asking about the differences between fixed-boom and rotating models – particularly when it comes to maintenance.

Whether you have a rotating or a fixed-boom telehandler, pre-operation checks and proper machine maintenance ensure your equipment will be ready for everyday operations and significant downtime can be prevented from unexpected failures. Follow these five preventive maintenance tips to keep both types of telehandlers in peak operating condition.

TIP 1: BE PREPARED TO PERFORM MAINTENANCE

For a telehandler to operate at full capacity, it needs to be in proper working order. Knowing when and what to check on your telehandler will also help reduce unplanned downtime. For example, JLG recommends equipment owners and operators follow the pre-delivery inspections, pre-operation checks, and maintenance intervals outlined in a machine’s Operation & Safety manual.

Pre-delivery inspections should be done before each sale, lease, or rental delivery. Telehandler OEMs provide new Machine Delivery and Pre-Delivery Inspection forms that are unique to the particular type of machine. For example, rotating telehandlers will come with a form that calls specific attention to those models' standard features and functionality.

Pre-operation checks should be completed at the beginning of each shift or each change of operator. This type of inspection includes, but is not limited to, the following items:

• Cleanliness – Check all surfaces for leakage, debris, slippery substances, and/or foreign objects.

• Structure – Inspect the machine’s structure for dents, damage, weld, or parent metal cracks, as well as any other discrepancies.

• Decal & Placards – Check all for cleanliness and legibility and make sure none are missing. Clean or

replace as needed.

• Operation & Safety Manuals – Make sure a copy of the Operation & Safety Manual and AEM Safety Manual is enclosed in the weather-resistant storage container.

• Battery – Charge as required.

• Fuel – Add the proper fuel, as necessary.

• Engine Oil – Make sure the oil level is at the Full mark on the dipstick.

• Hydraulic Oil – Check the hydraulic oil level, add as required.

• Walk-Around Inspection – Perform as instructed by the machine’s Operations & Safety Manual.

• Function Check – Following the walk-around inspection, perform as instructed by the machine’s Operations & Safety Manual.

A pre-start inspection should also include a check to ensure that all safety devices are operating properly and perform a check for modifications to the machine’s components. It is important at this point to verify that any modifications on the machine have been approved by the manufacturer to avoid safety violations.

If the machine is equipped with accessories and/or attachments, please refer to the machine’s Accessories section in the Operations & Safety Manual, or look at the accessory installed on the machine for specific inspection, operation, and maintenance instructions.

Details on preventive maintenance to be completed at specific periodic intervals will be highlighted in the machine’s Service & Maintenance manual.

40 heavyequipmentguide.ca | FEBRUARY 2023 CRANES & LIFT

It is important to note that a few key attributes differentiate a rotating telehandler from a fixed-boom model in maintenance. One is the ability to rotate the upper frame 360 degrees. While the rotating turret requires minimal maintenance, it is recommended that all functions used during machine operation are inspected during pre-operation checks. In addition to the unique rotating functionality, rotating telehandlers are also generally equipped with more standard features which may vary on fixed telehandlers based on preferred customer configurations. Be sure to check the machine’s manuals for guidance on how to check and maintain these specific items.

TIP 2: KNOW WHEN TO PERFORM MAINTENANCE

Following a maintenance schedule allows you to keep the telehandler in proper working order before a failure or issue occurs. Here’s an example of a maintenance schedule for JLG’s rotating telehandlers:

• As Needed: Air conditioning system, filters (air, engine oil, hydraulic oil, air conditioning system, etc.), brake, parking brake, electrolyte level and battery charge, lighting, hydraulic oil level, alternator belts/services, engine oil level, radiators, radiator expansion tank, tire pressure, and wear check.

• Every 10 Hours: Window washer tank, safety decals and devices, coolant, engine oil level, metal structural work (no cracks), and radiators.

• Every 50 Hours: Grease level in the automatic lubrication system (if installed), prop shafts, axle oscillation, wheel reduction gear points, mechanical joints of parking brake on axle, mechanical joints, cab ventilation filter (closed cab), brake oil level, hydraulic oil level, hydraulic system leaks, air filter, fuel filter, coolant, engine oil level, tire pressure, and wheel nuts tightening.

• Every 250 Hours: Seat belts, rear-view mirrors, electrolyte level and battery charge, torque specifications – hydraulic fittings and fasteners, alternator belts/services, transmission oil, differential axle oil, and epicycloidal reduction gear oil.

• Every 500 Hours: Differential axle oil, epicycloidal reduction gear oil, cab ventilation filter (closed cab), brakes oil, electrical system, filters (air, engine fuel, engine oil, hydraulic oil, and water separator), engine oil, drum gearbox oil, and transmission oil

• Every 1,000 Hours: Differential axle oil, epicycloidal reduction gear oil, cab structure, brakes oil circuit (including pressure), brake, electrical system, hydraulic system, hydraulic oil, engine valve clearances, engine speed fuel tank, drum gearbox oil, chassis, and transmission oil.

• Every 2,000 Hours: Axle oscillation, hydraulic system, hydraulic oil tank, alternator, starter motor, and radiators.

• Every 3,000 Hours: Diesel exhaust fluid filter and coolant.

• Every 3,600 Hours: Engine AdBlue tank filter.

• Every 4,000 Hours: Prop shafts, reduction gear universal joint, wheel reduction gear clearance and gear pins, steering ball joints, and brake wear.

• Every 10,000 Hours: DEF collector filter.

• Every 2 Years (regardless of hours on the machine): Air conditioning system.

Please note that these intervals are for normal conditions and usage. Additional checks might be needed depending on a machine’s daily usage or configuration, so it’s always important to reference the machine’s Operation & Safety Manual.

TIP 3: STOCK UP ON PARTS

Preventive maintenance tasks often require equipment owners and operators to change fluids or replace common wear parts. To ensure that you have the right fluids or replacement parts on hand for these maintenance intervals, telehandler OEMs provide a recommended service parts stock list in the machine’s Parts manual. JLG recommends that you always keep parts from this list in inventory and readily available for required maintenance and repairs.

TIP 4: COMPLETE ALL REQUIRED MAINTENANCE TASKS

Preventive maintenance tasks should be completed at the intervals outlined in the machine’s manuals and/or according to the maintenance charts located on the machine.

Here are the key items you need to complete before maintaining a telehandler, fixed-boom or rotating:

Before beginning any inspections or checks, lower and fully retract all mobile parts (boom, attachments, etc.), park on flat ground, and follow the machine’s proper shutdown procedure. Put a lockout tag on the cab door and inside the controls, indicating maintenance work is underway.

Some key things to keep in mind as you’re going through this process:

1. If the maintenance procedure requires the mobile parts to remain up, apply the boom prop to prevent the descent or fall of the boom.

2. Maintenance should not be performed if the engine is running. To do this, put the lever in neutral, set the parking brake, run the engine at a minimum for 60 seconds to cool down, turn off the telehandler, and remove the key.

3. A telehandler must also be level to ensure your fluid readings are accurate.

4. If this work is being done in the field, set up barriers or spacers to prevent unauthorized personnel from approaching the machine.

Once the telehandler is ready for maintenance, you can follow the guidance below to complete many of the most common tasks:

To check the hydraulic oil level, look at the sight gauge to ensure the oil level is visible in the gauge window. If it’s not, remove the fill cap and add hydraulic fluid until the oil is up to the centre of the gauge and replace the cap.

The brake fluid level should be between the maximum and minimum marks on the brake reservoir. If the fluid is low, the telehandler will need to be serviced before it’s operated.

To check the engine coolant level, open the engine cover and check the surge tank. The coolant should be between the “Full” and “Add” marks. If it’s not, add engine coolant. The windshield washer fluid should be visible in the reservoir.

Look at the fuel gauge on the right side of the cab’s instrument panel and fill the tank as needed. To check the engine oil level, open the engine and check the oil mark on the dipstick.

Take out the cab air filters to inspect them. If it’s damaged, it will need to be replaced.

Remove the valve stem cap and check the pressure to maintain the tire air pressure. Add air if needed and then replace the cap. If there’s any damage to the tires, they will need to be replaced.

If any of the maintenance tasks can’t be completed as outlined by the machine’s manuals, or if any systems aren’t working properly, the telehandler must be removed from service and repaired before being operated again.

TIP 5: EDUCATE OPERATORS ON PROPER MAINTENANCE

Maintenance needs to become a regular part of your team’s schedule if it isn’t already. That includes providing the proper education and training on how to perform maintenance tasks. Be sure to follow the manufacturer-recommended guidelines outlined in the Operation & Safety Manual, as well as industry standards, for specifics related to the proper care and maintenance of your telehandler.

The Roto 50.35 delivers a maximum capacity of 11,000 pounds and a lift height of 115 feet. The turret allows 360-degree continuous rotation and is equipped with an intelligent Hydropneumatic Suspension on the axles, which keeps the machine level on uneven ground. The Merlo CVTronic hydrostatic transmission grants a smooth and progressive 0–40 km/h acceleration, improved precision, safety, and ease of use. This machine also features a tilting cab to ensure greater levels of comfort, ergonomics, and safety. The Roto comes with a remote-control feature allowing the operator to safely control the unit from a distance without sacrificing precision or control.

3Magni’s RTH 13.26 offers a maximum lift height of 85 feet, a maximum lift capacity of 28,660 pounds, and a maximum lift height capacity of 17,600 pounds. Over 100 attachments provide users with several machines in one, including a telescopic forklift, rough-terrain crane, and aerial work platform. All Magni rotating telehandlers include full LMI (Load Moment Indicator) resulting in users getting to work more efficiently, productively, and safely. Magni’s RTH 13.26 is equipped with a 10inch full-colour touchscreen, which is used to operate the machine. The touchscreen displays a dynamic load chart that shows operators exactly where the load is within the chart, preventing overload situations.

4The JLG R11100 rotating telehandler has a capacity of 13,000 pounds and a maximum reach height of 97 feet; it is JLG’s highest reaching telehandler to date. Front and rear scissor-style outriggers with automatic levelling jacks enable the operator to position the machine and then level the frame up to 6 degrees to compensate for uneven terrain. It is powered by a 168-hp FPT diesel engine and features a 2-speed, stop-toshift hydrostatic transmission that delivers a smoother ride over uneven terrain. Foamfilled tires come standard; air-filled tires are optional in two different treads. Thirteen specialized attachments are available.

ELECTRIC POWER LEADS WAY AS TANDEM ROLLERS ADVANCE

Tandem rollers are an integral part of asphalt paving – without compaction, there’s no road. Found on any roadbuilding job site, these machines have one job, and with a growing focus on precision compaction technology, they are doing that job better than ever. Today’s tandem rollers are also a focus for alternate drives, with a number of electric options coming on to the market.

ASPHALT MANAGER SOFTWARE DELIVERS IMPROVED PRECISION ON BOMAG’S BW206 AD-5 AM ROLLER.

BOMAG FOCUSES ON TECHNOLOGY

The BW206 AD-5 AM tandem vibratory roller from BOMAG integrates the company’s Asphalt Manager compaction system, which allows it to complete breakdown, intermediate, and finish rolling on high-production applications. Offering an 84.1-inch compaction width, the machine has a 55.1-inch drum diameter that BOMAG says puts more impact surface area in contact with asphalt. When using Asphalt Manager, the operator only needs to input layer thickness, and from there the system continually measures compaction progress while adjusting front drum vibration automatically between true vertical and horizontal as the mat stiffness increases.

DYNAPAC ELECTRIC ROLLERS

Dynapac’s two Z.ERA tandem rollers, the CC900 e and CC1000 e, are battery-powered machines with the same performance as their diesel-powered counterparts. The rollers have operating weights of 3,730 and 3,910 pounds respectively, and they are both powered by 48V lithium-ion batteries, which Dynapac says are capable of a full day’s operation without recharging. Multiple charging solutions, including 110/240V 1-phase options, as well as a fast charging option, will be available. The machines deliver the same static linear load, amplitude, gradeability, and travel speed as diesel rollers, but are quieter, have fewer moving parts, and have reduced maintenance needs.

DYNAPAC HAS INTRODUCED TWO BATTERYELECTRIC TANDEM ROLLERS.

AMMANN ELECTRIC ROLLER

Ammann’s new eARX 26-2 light tandem roller has no diesel engine or cooling system and few hydraulic components. Ammann says its 48V LiFePO4 battery pack is unique because each internal battery cell is independently protected to improve flame resistance and increase safety. The machine can operate for up to 18 hours on one charge. All of the electric drive and vibratory motors are equipped with a recuperation mechanism – when the machine stops or vibration is turned off, power is generated and sent back to the battery to increase charge.

HAMM PIVOT-STEERED LINE

A new generation of pivot-steered tandem rollers, the HX series, replaces Hamm’s DV+ line. Nine versions are available with operating weights of 17,000 or 19,842 pounds. Various models feature two vibrating roller drums, an oscillation and a vibrating roller drum, as well as combination rollers; vibration and oscillation drums are available as split or non-split drums. Engines operate at lower rpms, which reduces fuel consumption. Smart Compact, a compaction assistant that reviews and analyzes data about asphalt condition and determines the compaction needs individually for each drum, is a world first, according to Hamm.

CATERPILLAR SMALL ROLLERS

Caterpillar’s ten 2- to 5-ton rollers are ideal for low- to medium-duty applications and the rental market. All are designed with power management software as well as advanced hydraulics. Operator controls have been re-engineered to feature rocker switches and easy-to-read displays. A two-inch drum offset improves compaction efficiency, and a narrow frame design improves visibility to the job surface and drum edge. Optional Compaction Meter Value displays material stiffness to the operator and eliminates unnecessary passes.

5 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT EMMA

VOLVO’S ELECTRIC MACHINE MANAGEMENT APP HELPS

OWNERS AND OPERATORS OPTIMIZE THEIR ELECTRIC EQUIPMENT FLEETS

Fleet managers who have added electric equipment are used to ensuring their machines are fuelled and running. Now, they need to monitor the charge levels of their equipment to ensure uptime is maximized. Volvo Construction Equipment has introduced its Electric Machine Management App (EMMA) to provide an overview of the electric machines in a fleet, their condition, and their location. Here are five things to know about EMMA.

1. EMMA can monitor one machine or several: Users log in to the system either through their browser or the app and can get a snapshot of their fleet, whether it’s just one Volvo battery-electric unit or more, at any time. Owners, fleet managers, and operators can see the location of their machines with one glance.

2. EMMA tracks key conditions on electric equipment: The EMMA app allows users to review a range of data from their machines. That includes machine location, remaining battery capacity, and the estimated remaining time the machine can run on the current charge. The app monitors charging as well, including AC Level 1 or 2, as well as DC fast charging.

3. The app is customizable: Owners can set the information they want to see re-

garding their machines and program alerts for specific events. For example, users can set a certain charge level in the app and will receive an alert when that level has been reached. They can also see an estimate of how many working hours are available, allowing for better planning.

4. A map view provides immediate access: Managers can see exactly where their machines are and then can determine their charge level as well as whether they need to be charged before continuing work. This helps protect against machines running out of charge.

5. EMMA is available on a range of Volvo machines: The app will be rolled out to both the current range of compact machines as well as future machines, like the upcoming 22-ton LC230e excavator. HEG
