BREAK IT UP
Perform a range of jobs including drilling, breaking and cutting with Atlas Copco’s Cobra Pro drill/breaker, designed for medium to heavy demolition of concrete and asphalt. The Cobra Pro delivers 44 foot-pounds of impact energy at the tool tip and is self-contained with no compressor or hoses. Improved features include a redesigned tank cap that offers better regulation of tank pressure than previous models, a trimmed silencer with catalytic element and a new heat shield.
Enable upper and lower boom simultaneous operation with the compensated boom option from Terex Utilities. Available for the Hi-Ranger RMX Series material handling aerial lifts – the RMX65, RMX70 and RMX75 – the compensated boom option uses hydraulic cylinders to perform all functions, delivering smooth operation while eliminating compensating chains and walking links. As the lower boom is raised or lowered, the upper boom maintains the same angle to the ground. The RMX Series has working heights from 70 to 79.7 feet and are available in either end or side mount platform configurations.
Improve operation and lower lifetime operating costs with the L110G and L120G wheel loaders from Volvo Construction Equipment. The new additions to the G-Series deliver a 25-percent increase in lifting force and a 15-percent increase in breakout force over previous models, as well as offering up to 5 percent lower fuel consumption in load-and-carry applications. Both models have a Tier 4 Interim Volvo six-cylinder turbocharged V-ACT engine that features cooled gas recirculation, a particulate filter with active regeneration and delivers between 256 and 268 horsepower. The L110G and L120G feature two variable displacement load-bearing axial piston pumps for higher working hydraulic pressure that delivers higher breakout force ranging between 35,460 and 38,870 pound-feet, better control of the load and attachments and faster lifting and tilt functions.
