McLaughlin, Booth C-7474
Air-water combo vacuum unit mounts to trailer
McLaughlin’s trailer-mounted combination air/water vacuum excavator provides contractors with the advantages of both systems in one package for potholing utilities. A power pack added to the McLaughlin 500-, 800- and 12,000-gallon units make the combination possible. Powered by an 85-horsepower, turbocharged Kubota diesel engine, the 150 cfm-rotary compressor and a 3,000-psi water system enable safe soil removal. Water pressure reduces to 1,500 psi using either a four-jet reduction tool or a “wobble” nozzle digging tool. The unit’s three-stage filtration system with micro-poly filter eliminates bag houses.
Multiquip, Booth C-4529
Rechargeable welder runs off battery pack or power unit
Powered by five 12-volt rechargeable batteries, Multiquip’s BDW180MC 180-amp welder recharges itself during operation and can run off the battery pack or while plugged into a standard 120-volt receptacle.

Okada America, Booth C-4332
Pulverizers feature maximum jaw openings and oversized cylinders
Okada America now offers secondary crushing attachments for carriers ranging from 6 to 50 metric tons. The OSC pulverizers handle tough concrete recycling applications with an internal speed valve. The units can crush oversized concrete, as well as remove and cut rebar, all while operating with higher flows and pressures than that of today’s excavators.
RMT Equipment, Booth C-6125
On-board scale technology now available for compact machines
The same on-board scale technology used to keep accurate weight measures of larger loaders is now an option for smaller machines. VEI’s Helper Mini, available through RMT Equipment, provides small wheel loader and skid steer users with immediate feedback regarding weight and other information during loading and beyond. The Helper Mini’s technology works with the machine to detail an accurate weight of each bucketful of material. Up to 20 different materials – along with their properties – can be stored into the mini’s memory, so each time a user loads material into the bucket, the scale can recall the amount based on its weight. Users can also track other information each time a load goes out, such as project ID and product name.
Roadtec, Booth C-5357
Cold planer’s cutting housing material evacuation improved
Powered by a 325-horsepower Caterpillar C9 ACERT engine, Roadtec’s RX-400 4-foot cold planer allows contractors to cut as narrow as 26 inches at an operating speed of 172 feet per minute. Improved evacuation of material from the cutter housing allows users to achieve cutting depths up to 12.5 inches, even in clog-prone, loose material. The conveyor and cutter housing design of the RX-400 solves the significant tooth and tooth holder wear problem that can be encountered with other designs.
Vermeer, Booth C-7301
Horizontal directional drill delivers 16,000 pounds of force
Powered by a 63-horsepower Kubota diesel engine, Vermeer’s D16x20 Series II Navigator horizontal directional drill provides 16,000 pounds of thrust pullback force and 2,000 foot-pounds of torque. For added control in varying soil conditions, the standard AutoDrill function allows the operator to set rotation, thrust and pullback pressure. The drill then adjusts bore and pullback speeds as it works through the bore. Sliding tracks adjust outward for improved stability in uneven terrain. When returned to inward position, the drill has a compact footprint.
Ashland Industries, Booth N-2269
Scraper attachment allows 38 degrees of rotation
Ashland Industries’ Ground Hog 2500 scraper attachment moves three to four times the payload of traditional buckets, while tackling the extra weight with ease. When combined with compact power units, the 2.5-cubic-yard heaped capacity Ground Hog 2500 delivers the reliability of a small self-propelled tracked earthmover and the maneuverability of a skid steer – all with reduced mobilization costs. Designed for use with 70-plus horsepower compact track loaders or steel-tracked skid steers, the Ground Hog uses its power unit for traction and hydraulics only, as its oscillating front beam and large caster shoulder most of the weight while minimizing stress to the loader arms.
Bandag, Booth N-2301
