Felling Trailers compact loader trailer

The FT-6 CL, FT-10 CL and FT-12 CL compact loader trailer line from Felling Trailers, Sauk Centre, Minn., have been redesigned to accommodate a mini skid-steer, regardless of brand. The company says the trailers now provide sufficient space for mini skid-steers as well as attachments. The trailers have solid steel pan-style sides with multiple D-rings to secure equipment to the deck.




Bobcat compact excavator

The E85 minimal tail swing and the E63 compact tail swing compact excavators from Bobcat Co., West Fargo, N.D., are the latest addition to the company’s M-Series lineup. The 8.5-ton E85 is now the largest in the company’s compact excavator line with an operating weight of 18,960 lbs. and an overall width of 91 in. It is powered by a 59.4-hp diesel engine that is Tier 4 compliant with a high-pressure common-rail fuel injection system, diesel oxidation catalyst and a diesel particulate filter. The 6.3-ton E63 replaced the company’s E60, is powered by the same Tier 4 engine as the E85 and has an upper structure shifted toward the rear of the machine on the undercarriage, which the company says helps to increase efficiency.


Larson Electronics portable light tower

The WAL-C-3XM quadpod mini light tower from Larson Electronics has three lamp fixtures and a wheeled and adjustable tower assembly designed to provide full power illumination in a portable package. The WAL-C-3XM has a four-leg tower design for stability and a triple metal halide lamp assembly designed to illuminate 114,000 sq. ft. of work area. The company says tools are not required to assemble and disassemble the tower and the lamp assembly can be lifted from the tower. Also, the company says the mast and leg assembly can be collapsed and folded for transport in the back of a small truck or a car.


SANY crawler crane

The SCC8150 crawler crane from SANY, Peachtree City, Ga., has a rated lift capacity of 165 tons and achieves its maximum lift capacity at a radius of 16.1 ft. It may be configured with either a main boom that reaches up to 269 ft. or a fixed jib that reaches up to 102 ft. The crane is powered by a Tier 4 interim Cummins engine and a Tier 3 Cummins engine also is available.



John Deere commercial mower

The Z925M Flex Fuel ZTrak commercial mower from John Deere, Cary, N.C., is compatible with ethanol blends up to E85, giving fleet owners an alternative fuel option. The mower is offered in 54- and 60-in. widths, comes with a 7-Iron™ deck and a 24.6-hp electronic fuel injected engine, and has a top speed of 10 mph.


Husqvarna power pack

The PP 518 portable, self-contained power pack from Husqvarna Construction Products, Olathe, Kan., creates a precise flow with its hydrostatic pump system, which does not use engine rpms to regulate flow. As a result, the company says the 298-lb. PP 518 provides consistent flow for any hydraulic tool requiring 5, 8 or 10 gpm flow at 2,000 psi, including wall saws, drill motors, power cutters, diamond chain saws, breakers, tampers, drivers, chippers, drills and earth augers.
