Doosan’s DX140W wheel excavator delivers power and performance via a 135-horsepower, six-cylinder, water cooled, Tier 4 Interim diesel engine. The DX140W has an Electronic Power Optimizing system that maximizes both power and fuel efficiency with four work modes (digging, breaker, shear and lifting), as well as an auto-idle. Doosan has included a new electronic fan clutch that reduces fuel consumption and noise while improving the cooling system. An enhanced ROPS cab includes a tilt function for the seat, lockable door window position slider, larger door, expanded cabin size, improved joystick angle and an internal coil spring that reduces cabin vibration by 20 percent. Additional machine features include individually controlled outriggers, an oscillating front axle and an optional Intelligent Floating Boom that enables to boom to move up and down freely without hydraulic flow.

Tire Tackler Untitled 1Iowa Mold Tooling has revamped its lineup of TireHand tire manipulators, including adding two new models. The units are available in loader or forklift truck-mounted options and provide capacities ranging from 5,500 to 36,000 pounds. The two new models – the TH20K167 and TH36K164 – offer 20,000 and 36,000 pounds of capacity, respectively. Design enhancements include an optimized pad design that features a new grip pattern and tapering, enabling a firm grip on the tire without damage; increased arm length that allows the TireHand to reach the back flange on the wheels; a minimized arm profile that reduces interference with chassis components; dual pinion pad rotation that reduces pinion stress while increasing life; and 100-degree cylinder body rotation that moves the center of gravity closer to the machine, allowing a smaller loader to be used. Integrated fallback protection arms are hydraulically controlled for easy operation and improved operator safety. The feature can be activated from the control panel or a remote control. Options include quick coupler attachments, fully proportional controls and a mounted camera.

Compact Design Untitled 1Experience all-around visibility and intuitive controls with BOMAG’s BW100ADM-5 tandem vibratory roller, which features an operator’s platform with a smaller diameter steering wheel, multifunctional travel lever, adjustable seat and circular instrumentation. Powered by a 20.2-horsepower water cooled Kubota diesel engine, the BW100ADM-5 delivers 3,822 pounds of centrifugal force at a 3,780-vpm frequency. The engine’s Ecomode system idles the engine while the roller is inactive, saving fuel. The roller, which has a 39.4-inch working width, has its travel motors contained within the drums instead of hanging from the drums, ensuring a compact design and boosting maneuverability. Additional features include a 26.4-gallon water tank, pressurized spray system with triple filtered nozzles, BOMAG’s Intelligent Vibration Control, spring-applied hydraulically released parking brake, ROPS with retractable seat belt, backup alarm, emergency stop button, front and rear lights for night operation and a lockable engine hood and instrument panel.
