Komatsu intros D375A-8 with big productivity boost, design/durability improvements

Categorías:
29/09/2017

Komatsu has launched a new and improved update to its D375A crawler dozer that the company says provides a big productivity boost along with lower cost of ownership.

The D375A-8 is powered by a Komatsu SAA6D170E-7 Tier 4 Final engine that delivers 609 horsepower when the machine is moving forward and 748 hp when placed in reverse.

Designed for reclamation, large construction or production mining applications, Komatsu says the D375A-8’s power boost in reverse results in faster cycle times and a productivity increase of up to 18 percent.

The engine is paired with an automatic, three-speed transmission with an automatically engaging lockup torque converter for increased fuel efficiency and faster ground speeds during long pushes.

Komatsu product manager Joe Sollitt says the new dozer also benefits from improvements to the dozer’s mainframe and track frame for increased durability.

“The durability improvements to this new model drive down the total cost of ownership,” Sollitt says. “The improvements to the undercarriage, cab suspension, and operator interface will make D375A-8 operators more comfortable and productive throughout their shift.”

Further improvements to the D375A with operator comfort in mind include larger cab mounts with more vertical stroke and shock absorption and a new heated/ventilated seat with improved suspension and cushioning. The machine’s updated design also improves visibility to the cutting edge and ripper point.

Blade auto-pitch, ripper auto-return and shoe slip control are standard features along with the following:

  • New full wrap-around rear platform.
  • Engine access doors swing forward not upward.
  • Swing-out, hydraulically driven and reversible radiator fan and Mesabi copper-core radiator simplifies cleaning and maintenance.
  • All new, large capacity, automatic air conditioner remote mounted behind cab.
  • Ground level fluid evacuation/service center with Wiggins quick couplers.
  • Remote mounted, centralized grease points.
  • Ground level fast fuel coupler
  • Centralized fluid sampling and PM service connectors.
  • Rearview monitoring system.
  • LED lighting package

A new hydraulic boarding ladder is an available option.

Categorías:
29/09/2017

With prices on pre-Tier 4 machinery rising as much as 20 percent, contractors can face a difficult time in determining how much to pay for used equipment. So the Independent Equipment Dealers Association (IEDA) is providing some free advice.

The association is offering a free white paper called Advice from the Experts: Getting the Best Pricing on Used Equipment in the Era of Tier 4.

The paper looks at how emission control mandates have driven up prices on non-Tier 4 machinery and made it harder to find Tier 3 and earlier excavators, backhoes, wheel loaders, dump trucks, dozers and compact equipment.

The 13-page paper also offers tips from dealers on the types of questions to ask sellers, where to buy equipment, evaluating online listings for used equipment and how to inspect the equipment.

Equipment World also recently released its Used Equipment Guide for 2017. Click here to download a copy.

The Federal Highway Administration will send $40 million in “quick release” emergency relief funds throughout Puerto Rico to help restore roads and bridges damaged by Hurricane Maria.

“It is critical to get the island’s infrastructure in working condition as soon as possible so relief supplies and other assistance can be delivered to the people of Puerto Rico,” said U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao.

Hurricane Maria caused widespread damage to roads and bridges across the island. In addition to restoring essential traffic, emergency work will include repairs to bridges, guardrails, traffic signal systems and address a variety of damages related to mudslides and flooding.

The $40 million “quick release” payment is an initial installment of funds used to restore essential traffic and limit further highway damage, according to FHWA.

The Colorado Department of Transportation’s $487 million U.S. 36 Express Lanes project earned the Grand Prize in the 2017 America’s Transportation Awards competition.

A multimodal project in Colorado and the removal of dangerous intersections in Idaho won top honors at the 2017 America’s Transportation Awards competition.

The Colorado Department of Transportation’s $487 million U.S. 36 Express Lanes project earned the Grand Prize and the Idaho Transportation Department’s $11.2 million U.S. 20 Thornton Interchange project was voted the People’s Choice Award winner. The 10th annual competition was sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), AAA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

CoDOT’s project between Denver and Boulder included the installation of intelligent transportation systems for incident management, tolling, transit and traveler information, along with the replacement or widening of 13 bridges, the addition of bus rapid transit lanes and a commuter bikeway.

The IDOT’s project in rural eastern Idaho was the last of seven new interchanges built in the past 17 years to provide safe access to and from a 34-mile stretch of U.S. 20.

The 2017 competition attracted a record 92 nominations from state transportation departments in 39 states and the District of Columbia, the AASHTO reports.

Four regional competitions were held, and the three projects from each region receiving the highest ratings competed for the final two awards. An independent panel of industry judges selected the Grand Prize winner, and the project receiving the highest number of online votes earned the People’s Choice Award.

The awards came with $10,000 cash prizes to be used to support a charity or transportation-related scholarship program.

CDOT to install weather, speed monitoring on I-70

Categorías:
29/09/2017

Twenty-two variable speed limit signs, along with three weather stations, will be placed on the I-70 Glenwood Canyon corridor. The signs with two “XX” will show separate speed limits for passenger vehicles and heavy vehicles. The signs with single “XX” will show only one speed limit.

The Colorado Department of Transportation plans to install interconnected weather and road sensors and other devices on a particularly dangerous section of the Interstate 70 Glenwood Canyon corridor to improve driver safety.

Three weather monitoring stations will be installed along a 15-mile stretch of east and westbound lanes to give drivers advanced warning of dangerous conditions, the CDOT says.

The highway section will also get 22 new variable speed limit signs, which will increase the standard speed limit during good conditions to 60 mph for passenger vehicles, and to 50 mph for vehicles over 26,000 gross vehicle weight.

Conversely, they will lower speed limits when conditions worsen. Nine closed-circuit cameras will be added to show real-time traffic conditions.

The work is scheduled to begin in October 2017 and be completed in October 2018, the CDOT says.

ARTBA elects Cummings as 2017-2018 chairman (VIDEO)

Matt Cummings

The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) has announced the election of Matthew G. Cummings, executive vice president with global infrastructure company AECOM, as its 2017-2018 chairman.

Cummings has worked in the transportation construction industry for 30 years, with the last 23 years at AECOM, where he led AECOM’s $2 billion transportation business in the Americas since 2014.

Cummings has held volunteer leadership positions at ARTBA , including senior vice chairman, first vice chairman, Surface Transportation Advisory Council chairman, Planning & Design Division president, ARTBA chair of the AASHTO/AGC/ARTBA Joint Committee, ARTBA Foundation Trustee, and member of the Strategic Planning Committee and Project 2019 Task Force. He is also a 2004 graduate of the Young Executive Development Program, now called the Industry Leader Development Program. Cummings also served as the 2016-2017 president of the American Council of Engineering Companies Pennsylvania chapter, and as director of the Associated Pennsylvania Constructors board from 2009 to the present.

During an ARTBA members business meeting, Cummings outlined his agenda for the coming year. “Most importantly, ARTBA will remain laser-focused on its core mission of ensuring a long-term Highway Trust Fund fix that provides the necessary revenue to help gain future market stability and significant market growth,” Cummings said, in an ARTBA press release.

Cummings said ARTBA will continue to push Congress and the Trump administration to pass a major transportation infrastructure plan and passage of a multi-year aviation program bill, as well as work to build a federal regulatory environment conducive to more efficient and safe project delivery. He said he would personally focus on expanding the number of firms and organizations supporting the “Transportation Makes America Work” lobbying and advocacy communications program to help ensure the industry has the necessary financial resources to achieve its legislative and regulatory goals.

According to ARTBA, Cummings has two key safety initiatives on the agenda. “Safety training and education have always been core ARTBA competencies,” Cummings said in the press release. “We will be launching a new Transportation Construction Safety Center to serve as the consolidated home for the many value-added safety services that are available for all industry firms and executives.”

The second key safety initiative is to ensure continued recognition and growth of the “Safety Certification for Transportation Project Professionals” program in its second year by earning American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accreditation. ARTBA will work to incorporate its Online Learning Center safety courses — which have been approved for Professional Engineers’ Continuing Education units in Florida, New York and North Carolina — into corporate Learning Management Systems of engineering firms.

Cummings highlighted his plans to engage ARTBA officers and directors, the Industry Leader Development Council, and the Women Leaders Council to increase “peer-to-peer” membership development outreach to target key firms and potential new chapters, and greater leverage programs aimed at developing the industry’s workforce.

VIDEO: Cat M105 DEUCE a combat dozer that moves 6x as fast as a D5

Categorías:

What do you get when you throw some armor on a D5 and make it capable of speeds up to 30 miles per hour? You get a DEUCE.

The M105 Deployable Universal Combat Earthmover (DEUCE) was first produced by Caterpillar in 1999 under contract with the U.S. Army, according to a page at Military-Today.com. A total of 227 DEUCEs were made and the high-speed combat dozer was a purpose-built machine created to replace the use of Cat’s D5 in military service.

Cat powered the DEUCE with a 7.2-liter Cat 3126 engine delivering 185 horsepower in earthmover mode and 265 hp in traveling mode. The machine can be airlifted by the C-130 Hercules and upon being airdropped can be re-assembled for work in less than 30 minutes.

Here are the type of situations Military-Today says the dozer is used for:

The M105 DEUCE performs excavation in support of mobility, counter-mobility and survivability missions. Typical missions of this high speed dozer are digging of pits and positions for armored vehicles, troops or artillery systems, preparing airstrips. It also performs other typical engineering tasks.

There are three videos below. The first shows the DEUCE in action. The second gives an up close look at a DEUCE repurposed for forestry work, and the third shows Cat dealer Yancey Bros. restoring and rebuilding one.
