Gehl telescopic handler

The RS5-19 telescopic handler from Gehl, West Bend, Wis., now has an upgraded Yanmar Tier 4, 69-hp engine. The machine has a rated lift capacity of 5,500 lbs. with a maximum lift height of 19 ft. 1 in., a maximum forward reach of 11 ft. and a turning radius of 11 ft. The RS5-19 has an overall height of 6 ft. 4 in., allowing for operating in buildings, garages and confined areas. A spring-applied, hydraulic-release (SAHR) parking brake is automatically applied when the engine is shut off or manually engaged by pressing a rocker switch.


BOMAG tandem roller

The BW100AD-4 tandem vibratory roller from BOMAG, Kewanee, Ill., has a Tier 4i, 32.6-hp, water-cooled Kubota diesel engine and is designed to deliver up to 8,350 lbs. of centrifugal force per drum and a maximum frequency of 4,200 vibrations per minute. The company says the “Smart Drive” steering wheel has a smaller diameter to give the operator more comfort and a better view of all indicator controls. A bolt-on articulating and oscillating joint and flexible scrapers for each drum are designed to simplify service requirements, the company says. A 58.1-gal. water tank and pressurized spray system has filtered nozzles and windscreen protection to provide uniform coverage.

Doosan Portable Power generators

The G70WCU, G85WCU and G125WCU mobile generators from Doosan Portable Power, Statesville, N.C., are Tier 4i-compliant and have a cooling system with a variable speed cooling fan to keep the generators cool in extreme temperatures. The company says the cooling system also helps maximize productivity and fuel efficiency, and that the enclosure includes deep air intake pockets that protect the generator from external elements and virtually eliminates water ingression. The generators are powered by Cummins QSB5 engines and have extended runtimes ranging from 24 to 38 hours at 100 percent load, the company says.

Hyster electric lift truck

The J80-100XN electric lift truck series from Hyster, Greenville, N.C., is available in 8,000-, 9,000- and 10,000-lb. models. The company says the electric lift trucks have an 80V configuration and an extended shift feature to help balance battery and shift life by equalizing the truck’s performance and battery usage. The trucks have a thermal management system to continuously monitor truck functions while protecting the components by automatically adjusting truck performance modes.

Takeuchi excavator

The TB260 hydraulic excavator from Takeuchi-US, Pendergrass, Ga., has a 47-hp turbocharged engine that meets Tier 4f emission requirements. The company says an automatic idle helps reduce fuel consumption and engine noise levels. When combined with ECO mode, the company says fuel consumption of the excavator can be reduced by as much as 21 percent in typical working conditions. The hydraulic system is designed to provide 12,756 lbs. of bucket breakout force and the company says the excavator also comes standard with primary and secondary auxiliary hydraulics operated using independent fingertip proportional controls.

Terex Environment Equipment arborist chipper

The TAC Woodsman 790 arborist chipper from Terex Environment Equipment, Farwell, Mich., now is available with added options, including a conveyor, a hydraulic loader and a winch. The company says the conveyor allows the chipper to more easily process tangled and broken large material as well as large amounts of bush and longer stem material. The hydraulic loader allows for drawing material into the cutting system with limited trimming. The company says this provides a more efficient way of processing treetops as well as longer material. The company also says the purpose of the winch is similar to that of a loader, only the winch is operated manually while a loader is hydraulically operated.
