Toyota unveils 2019 Tundra, Tacoma, 4Runner TRD Pro lineup

Toyota paid tribute to its off-road racing experience today during the unveiling of its 2019 TRD Pro lineup at the Chicago Auto Show.

The latest TRD Pro packages for Tundra, Tacoma and 4Runner, which go on sale this fall, will feature Fox internal bypass shocks tuned by TRD engineers.

“These are not some kind of off-the-shelf part, folks,” Jack Hollis, group vice president at Toyota Motor Sales, told reporters during this morning’s livestream reveal. “These are tailor made. Lessons learned in racing led to the technology that you’re going to see here today.”

Bobcat updates E85 excavator with more power, redesigned cab

Bobcat has unveiled the latest version of its largest compact excavator, the 8.5-ton E85, which is part of the company’s R-Series lineup.

Its 66-horsepower Bobcat turbo-charged diesel engine does not require a diesel particulate filter or selective catalytic reduction.

It is designed to work in tight spaces with 13 inches of tail overhang, and the boom frame stays within the width of the tracks as it swings. Bobcat also added a standard lift eye to help operators lift and place objects.

Test Drive: How Kenworth’s fuel cell T680 delivers a quick, quiet ride

California Governor Jerry Brown wants 5 million zero-emission vehicles on state roads by 2030. By the end of next month, one of them will be moving around the ports of SoCal.

Kenworth’s hydrogen fuel cell Zero Emissions Cargo Transit (ZECT) T680 tractor, the fruit of a $7 million project between the Kirkland, Washington, truck-maker, the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and Southern California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District, has been undergoing testing in the Seattle-area since December and will head off to Total Transportation Services and the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach in about six weeks.

Doosan’s new DL280-5 loader designed for the dirtiest environments

Attendees of the recent World of Concrete show got a sneak peek at Doosan’s new 172-gross-horsepower, 3.7-cubic-yard DL280-5 wheel loader.

The new loader fits between the company’s DL250-5 and DL300-5 loaders. “The DL280-5 is a model line extension for us,” says Aaron Kleingartner, Doosan Infracore North America marketing manager. “It fits a gap that was created over time between model sizing and engine development.”

Aimed at two primary markets – general construction and scrap handling – the 34,262-pound loader features a wide fin radiator, which uses larger fin spacing for more effective cooling and less clogging. “This is especially good for heavy duty applications that have a lot of trash and debris,” Kleingartner says.
