For more information on these exhibitors, go to worldofconcrete.com or download the app, available on the site.

 


MULTI-TOOL

Outfitted with Allied-Gator’s Quick-Change MT Cracker/Crusher Jaw Set, the MT Series Multi-Tool makes for a powerful demolition combination that processes concrete, heavy cast and rail materials. The 90-degree jaw opening of the jaw set holds more material and enables the the Multi-Tool to demolish objects that are much larger than the actual jaw opening, such as concrete piers, foundations and building corners. The Cracker/Crusher Jaw Set features disposable wear components and interchangeable bolt-on tooth segments can be changed in less than five minutes allowing the operator to control and regulate material size with several tooth configurations. Cracker tooth segments penetrate heavily reinforced concrete and dense rock, and safely process cast materials. Crusher tooth segments efficiently de-rod and pulverize concrete in one bite, allowing contractors to demolish and process materials simultaneously. Finish tooth segments send a clean, flat and controlled crack through curbs and walls, reducing costly and time-consuming precision work like facing and edging. Finally, MT Rail Breaker tooth segments process rail and, as an added benefit, cleanly remove any concrete or asphalt that may be bonded to the rail. The Multi-Tool is available in sizes from 800-52,000 pounds. Text INFO to 205-289-3715 or visit www.eqwinfo.com.

 

 


EXCAVISION

Ocala Instruments’ ExcaVision fits on any excavator or backhoe and eliminates the need or a helper to measure the depth of excavation. The operator can monitor the depth, slope, and width of the work without others working around deep holes. The system installs in less than one hour and a basic version can be purchased and then upgraded later with either Ocala’s GPS option or your own existing GPS rover.  Text INFO to 205-289-3715 or visit www.eqwinfo.com.

CHAIN-DRIVEN OHC

Subaru’s EX Series features seven engines with power ranges from 4.3 to 14 horsepower that use chain-driven overhead cam (OHC) technology. Chain-driven OHC allows the intake and exhaust valves to be positioned in order to lower resistance for the mixture and flow of air and fuel. An automatic decompression system reduces the required recoil pulling force by 30 to 40 percent, meaning easier engine starts and with fewer moving parts and less noise. EX Series engines include the EX13, EX17, EX21, EX27, EX30, EX35 and EX40 models, which produce 4.3-, 5.7-, 7-, 9-, 9.5-, 12- and 14-horsepower respectively.

PINPOINT PRECISION

E-Z Drill’s Model 20 UTL allows utility companies to pinpoint the site of a gas leak without the need of tearing out a significant stetch of roadway. The Model 20 UTL is used to drill through the road surface in periodic intervals, narrowing the potential leak area to a stretch between holes that can simply be repaired, rather than destroy a whole section of road. E-Z Drill says that while the Model 20 UTL is built for the gas industry, it can handle just about any type of vertical drilling application.
