The big show is fast approaching, and ConExpo exhibitors have given us a sneak peek into what they’ll have in store for those attending the March 7-11 massive exhibition. To view previous preview entries for ConExpo 2017 click here. Here’s the spotlight on three exhibitors in the Central Hall:

Atlas Copco, booth C-31486


Atlas Copco will showcase several new products, including the F1200C compact track paver, which has a laying capacity of 330 tons per hour. Equipped with a V240VE screed, the machine can be used in a wide range of jobs, including cycle paths, sidewalks, repair work, parking garages and sports fields. Featuring a 4-cylinder Tier 4 Final Deutz engine, the machine can pave up to 10 inches thick and 10 feet wide. Improved long tracks and hydraulic motors give the unit a fast transport and working speed. A 5.5-ton capacity hopper offers advantages in tight areas where refilling is a problem.

Other equipment on display: HiLight V5+ light towers, the R TEX pneumatic breaker and Next Gen bucket crusher.

Thunder Creek Equipment, booth C-22521


Multi-Tank Trailers (MTT) legally transport bulk diesel on the road without requiring drivers to maintain a CDL or HAZMAT endorsement. Available in 460-, 690- and 920-gallon capacities, the MMT also includes bulk diesel exhaust fluid storage and dispensing solutions. Diesel is isolated in four, six or eight separate 115-gallon DOT-compliant non-bulk tanks. These tanks are joined by a manifold to a common pump, creating isolation during transport and controlled dispensing of fuel at the jobsite.

Other equipment on display: The redesigned Service & Lube Trailer, capable of holding 440 gallons of fluid in up to eight tanks.

Bair Products, booth C-22032

Super Forks offers a utility carrier with an extra wide frame to safely move large and long pipe, in addition to large flat sheets of material. Hauls pipe both horizontally and vertically.
