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. You can check out previous entries in our ConExpo 2017 previews here. Here’s the spotlight on three exhibitors in the Gold Hall/Lot areas:
ASV, booth G-4464
The ASV Posi-Track RT-120 compact track loader is capable of using large attachments for long periods without bogging down or overheating. Optimized for forestry, the unit features metal guarding against brush and debris around key areas, such as lights, the AC condenser and the rear screen. The unit has a FOPS Level 2 cab, improved ROPS and reinforced windows for impact resistance. The dual-level suspension includes suspended wheels and axles, allowing the machine to travel quickly over all types of terrain.
Worksaver, booth G-71225
The SSGB-8B skid steer grader blade is designed for asphalt, landscaping and concrete flatwork contractors. The unit has an 8-foot, six-way hydraulically controlled moldboard operated by an in-cab remote. With an optional laser system, the grader will maintain grade to tight tolerances.
Other equipment on display: The SARG, or Sweep Action Rock Grapple, which handles rocks, brush, logs, stumps and more.
