Latest Brokk

demolition machine

This long established Swedish

maker of small remote controlled demolition machines used Bauma to add an additional model to its range. The new Brokk160 has an operating weight of 1600kg and slots in between the existing 1015kg Brokk 90 and the 1930kg Brokk 180 models. The rubber tracked 160 has a width of 780mm wide, which is 20mm narrower than the 180. The newcomer is 12% more powerful than the heavier 180 and it can also carry attachments such as hydraulic breakers and crushers weighing up to 270kg. Powered by an 18.5 kW electric motor, the Brokk 160 has a hydraulic system that allows use of a breaker with blow energy of over 406 Joules at its tip. The machine’s three section articulated boom provides a maximum reach of 4.8m when fitted with a breaker such as the Atlas Copco SB202. The machine is operated by cable/radio remote control.

Significant Wacker Neuson additions

A significant addition to this company’s range of tracked excavators appeared at Bauma. With an operating weight of 14 tonnes, the new 14504 is Wacker Neuson’s most powerful excavator to date. The 14504 has boom offset so that it

can operate more effectively in confined spaces. The 2.49m wide machine has a 74.9 kW Deutz turbocharged diesel engine and three work modes - High (full power), ECO (75% power) and LO (for precision grading work). Maximum digging depth is 5.5m. Compaction equipment is an important part of the Wacker Neuson product portfolio and a Bauma highlight was the company’s big new DPU130. This infrared remote controlled reversible plate has the compaction performance to match a 7.0 tonne vibrating roller. It is powered by a 21.0kW Lombardini engine and produces a centrifugal force of 130kN - 30% more than Wacker Neuson’s previous top-of-the-range DPU100-70.

Clear-sided Bomag

An important launch from this well-known plant

maker was its new fifth generation of lightweight (under 1800kg) ride-on tandem rollers. The latest versions of the popular BW80AD, BW90AD and BW100ADM models are joined by the clear-sided models BW90SC-5 and BW100SC-5, powered by Kubota engines. With drum widths of 900mm and 1000mm respectively, the models have their drums offset by 50mm to give working widths of 950mm and 1050mm. These drums are suspended on one side only where they connect to the frame; thus the roller operator can compact flush to walls or kerbs on the left and right, and then steer away from the obstacle without damaging it. The recently introduced BMP 8500 articulated sheepsfoot trench

roller can now be supplied with the back-up safety system. This is the Bomag Operator Security System – called BOSS. Other light equipment developments include the new petrol rammers BT60/4 and BT65/4 as well as new BP and BVP forward travel plate compactors.

Hitachi swings in

More Dash 3 mini excavators were launched by Hitachi at Bauma. These units include the ZX18-3 (1770kg) and ZX27-3 (2890kg) conventional swing models and five minimal swing minis - the models ZX29U-3, ZX33U-3, ZX38U-3, ZX48U-3 and ZX52U-3. With maximum operating weights of 3320, 3580 and 4070kg, these short tail minis utilise ‘Eco Zone’ technology to reduce fuel consumption. The 5080kg ZX48U-3 and 5410kg ZX52U-3 short tail minis each have a EU Stage IIIA emissions compliant engine rated at 28.4kW which powers a three pump hydraulic system. Hitachi also launched three new compact articulated wheel loaders.

The ZW65, ZW75 and ZW95 each feature a spacious cab, Z-bar loader linkage and a newly designed quick coupler

compatible with a wide range of attachments. Each loader also has a Kubota V3307-DI-T water-cooled four cylinder engine and a hydrostatic transmission. Standard bucket capacities are 0.7m3 0.85m3

, and 1.05m3 . 0191 430 8400 Page 1  |  Page 2  |  Page 3  |  Page 4  |  Page 5  |  Page 6  |  Page 7  |  Page 8  |  Page 9  |  Page 10  |  Page 11  |  Page 12  |  Page 13  |  Page 14  |  Page 15  |  Page 16  |  Page 17  |  Page 18  |  Page 19  |  Page 20  |  Page 21  |  Page 22  |  Page 23  |  Page 24  |  Page 25  |  Page 26  |  Page 27  |  Page 28  |  Page 29  |  Page 30  |  Page 31  |  Page 32  |  Page 33  |  Page 34  |  Page 35  |  Page 36  |  Page 37  |  Page 38  |  Page 39  |  Page 40  |  Page 41  |  Page 42  |  Page 43  |  Page 44  |  Page 45  |  Page 46  |  Page 47  |  Page 48  |  Page 49  |  Page 50  |  Page 51  |  Page 52  |  Page 53  |  Page 54  |  Page 55  |  Page 56
