New lighting tower from Atlas Copco

Atlas Copco launched a new mobile lighting tower, designed specifically for the European market. Called the QLT H40, this unit has a 9.2kW Perkins three cylinder diesel engine, driving an 8kVA Mecc Alte generator to power four 1000W metal halide lamps. The machine is equipped with an eight section

vertical mast that is extended hydraulically upwards to its maximum height of 9.2m in 15 seconds. Mounted on a trailer complete with forklift slots and a central lifting eye, the QLT H40 is a fully bunded unit with a 140-litre fuel tank designed to provide a running time of 85 hours. Other new Atlas Copco products at Bauma included an updated range of

hydraulic power packs. Complete with an improved cover design that provides better engine protection, there are two new packs with Briggs & Stratton Vanguard petrol engines and two units with electric motors for indoor operation. Depending on model, the packs weigh either 118kg or 130kg and buyers have the choice of 20-30, 30, 20-40 or 40 litre/min hydraulic flow rates.

Battery-powered Takeuchi

A particular highlight on this Japanese plant maker’s stand was a working demonstration of the latest prototype of its battery-powered mini excavator. The machine on show was the TB117E, weighing 1720kg and powered by Lithium-ion batteries. Complete with a variable width (980-1300mm) undercarriage and the same performance as the popular TB016, this machine provides a maximum dig depth of 2141mm. The self- contained (no trailing supply cable) electric

TB117E is said to be able to operate for a

full six hours before recharging (which takes six hours) is necessary. Designed to reduce servicing and operating costs by 80%, the quiet, fume-free TB117E is scheduled to go into production in 2011. Takeuchi also hopes to produce a 2.5 tonne class electric mini.
