Horizontal directional drill handles pipe with ease
Fit into tight spaces such as backyards and alleys with Ditch Witch’s JT922 horizontal directional drill. The JT922 holds up to 300 feet of pipe and has a carriage speed of 188 feet per minute. The rack-and-pinion thrust drive has a welded double rack rather than a bolted one, which prevents misalignment with the pinion. Other features include a heavy-duty anchor system, open-top vise wrenches and an integrated remote display.

Low vibration rammers provide traction in cohesive soils
With narrower and shorter handles, simple hood latches and larger air filters, Dynapac’s redesigned four-stroke gas- and diesel-powered rammers stand up to the strict requirements imposed on compaction in pipe trenches, confined areas and repair work. The LT5000 and LT6000 gas versions feature Honda GX100 engines, while a GX120 powers the LT7000 gas version. Each rammer has a multi-function fuel tank and throttle control in three fixed positions. For the LT8000, a 1B20 Hatz diesel engine ensures the compaction effort with less strain on the operator and rammer components.

Lightweight plasma cutter delivers cuts at 10 inches per minute
Achieve smooth, steady cuts with Miller Electric’s Spectrum 375 X-Treme lightweight plasma cutter. Notch I-beams, cut steel studs, steel roofs or sheet metal at a rate of 10 inches per minute. The 18-pound unit provides 3/8-inch cutting capacity on mild steel and / inch on aluminum. Selecting the correct Multi-Voltage Plug and linking it with the power cord allows the cutter to connect to any 115- to 230-volt single-phase power supply. An optional drop-tested X-Case with reinforced corners protects the 375 X-Treme during transport and storage.

Hooklift loader lifts up to 65,000 pounds
With a sliding jib and an adjustable hook height of 54 or 61.75 inches, Stellar Industries’ Slider65 hooklift loader accommodates container bodies from 16 to 22 feet and works with flatbeds up to 24 feet long. The weight of the Slider65 has been reduced by more than 1,600 pounds, allowing for a greater payload. The loader also has a patented dump load/interlock system with a 49-degree dump angle and a maximum lifting capacity of 65,000 pounds. Use of the hexagonal jib adds strength, reduces flexing and makes it easier to replace wear pads. Standard features include stainless steel pins and DuPont Imron 5000 paint.

Direction sensing controls keep boom lift on track
Axle based four-wheel drive systems provide maximum traction and maneuverability on Skyjack’s new SJ 40T and SJ45T T Series telescopic boom lifts. A Detroit Locker differential on the rear oscillating axle and limited slip differential on the front axle ensures the least amount of power loss when one or more wheels lose traction. Both models feature 45-percent gradeability and are drivable at full height. The lifts also incorporate Skyjack’s direction sensing controls, which maintain driving and steering with respect to the operator rather than the orientation of the base. Other features include color-coded, analog-based control systems and relay-based electrical systems as opposed to multiplex control and wiring systems. For quick and easy maintenance, the central grease points are located at the rear of the turret.

Vibratory screener handles primary screening for feeding a crusher
McCloskey’s new R155 High Energy vibratory screener provides a 16- by 5-foot screen box with 155 square feet of area for maximum production in heavy screening applications. The screen box is coupled with a lower screen deck measuring 15 by 5 feet for increased throughput. In addition to the screen box, a 125-horsepower Caterpillar engine enables the R155 to process rock, quarry, construction and demolition and soil products, as well as finer material with equal efficiency. Like the company’s S-Series screeners, the R155 runs at a high-powered vibratory stroke of up to 10 millimeters at 950 rpm, or at 6 millimeters at 1,130 rpm.

Cab option offers 360-degree visibility
Vermeer’s climate-controlled cab option for its D24x40 Series II and D36x50 Series II Navigator horizontal directional drills provides 360-degree visibility, allowing the operator to monitor all machine operations. Independent heating and air-conditioning controls enhance comfort and a full-size hinged door offers easy access to the operator’s station. The cab’s tinted glass windows help reduce glare and heat.

Remove the hassle of installation of hard-wired remote stations
Control your pressure washer’s pump, burner and detergent injection operations from up to 300 feet away with Landa’s LanCom wireless remote option. The wireless remote signal travels through building walls and saves energy by shutting down the unit when not in use. The remote system also saves time with simple startup and shutdown of the unit from a remote washing area, such as washing at a site away from the main unit or from a ladder or scaffolding. Available with Landa’s VHG, PHWS, VNG, EHW and SEA pressure washer series.

Hybrid scissor lifts maintain high lifting capacity
Custom Equipment’s HB-1030E and HB-1430 scissor lifts for indoor use in construction are light enough to travel on delicate floors, fit through standard doorways and can be transported in most elevators. The HB-1030E weighs 1,323 pounds with a rated load capacity of 750 pounds. A lowered platform height of 2 feet provides easy access with an extended working platform height of 16 feet. Standard features include a 2- by 5-foot platform with a 2.5-foot extension, a four-wheel front steering design to prevent floor damage, a quiet electric drive system with fully proportional steering, an independent hydraulic system and a powder coat finish. The HB-1430 weighs 1,650 pounds with a rated load capacity of 670 pounds and includes a two-person platform with a slide out deck extension. Wheel size has also increased to 10 inches on the HB-1430.

Pump up to 250 gallons per minute with rugged diaphragm pump
Featuring 3-inch suction and discharge ports, Subaru’s self-priming PTX301D diaphragm pump pumps up to 250 gallons per minute at a maximum pressure of 21 psi. The pump has a maximum suction lift of 25 feet and a maximum lift head of 49 feet. By isolating the pump mechanism from the fluid being moved, the model pumps abrasives, slurries, re-circulated water and other high-solid material content up to 2 inches that can’t be handled by a centrifugal pump. With no moving parts the pump can run dry indefinitely. The positive displacement type, hermetically sealed compression chamber prevents loss of gases and liquids, while the large air cushion chamber decreases shock on the hoses.
