Efficient digging with Westquay

Takeuchi distributor, Westquay Trading, showed a TL250 tracked loader fitted with a Tesmec T450 excavating wheel, which is

reported to be proving a popular combination for hire to contractors installing cables for television, telephone and broadband services. The attachment can dig to a depth of 300-600mm, with a trench width of 130mm. Also on show, from Westquay’s range of considerably larger equipment, was the Tesmec TRS1150 Rock Hawg machine, which is targeted for use in quarries and open-cast excavations, and is designed to trench, excavate, crush and recycle.

01925 265333 Avant Tecno’s compact performer

First-time Hillhead exhibitor Avant Tecno’s stand display included the 420 diesel powered multi-purpose loader which features a telescopic boom. The compact machine can lift 650kg and has a maximum lift height of 2.8m. The off-centre boom configuration gives the operator good forward vision and a clear view of front-mounted attachments. A load sensor is fitted as standard. An audible

warning signal is given if the rear wheels are about to lift off the ground, such as when the operator has the load extended too far away from the body of the machine.

01953 714896 Precision from Prolec

Machinery guidance systems supplier, Prolec, and one of its distributors, Infomap Surveys, promoted GPS systems that can guide construction plant on a site and through digging processes. Sensors mounted on a machine read the location, orientation and position of the equipment, with key information then relayed to a machine guidance module and displayed on a cab-mounted screen in real-time and three dimensions. By following the on-screen information, the operator can dig exactly to plan, enabling

quicker, shorter working cycles and avoiding unnecessary overdigging, while reducing environmental impact.

01202 681190 Low vibrations from Atlas Copco

Amongst new launches from Atlas Copco was a range of vibration-reduced, hand-held hydraulic breakers. Their spring-mounted handles are suspended in a dampened pivot pin to reduce HAV, a configuration derived from the manufacturer’s pneumatic breakers. Four models are available, namely the LH 190 E, LH 230 E, LH 280 E and LH 400E, which have respective oil flows of 20, 20-30, 20-30 and 30-40 litres/minute, and impact rates of 1600, 1500-1950, 1400-1850 and 1100-1350. They can be driven by the manufacturer’s portable power packs or from the hydraulic outlet on a mini excavator or similar machine.

Ritelite’s bright idea

The battery powered K9 30 LED portable work light from Ritelite

has 30 high-efficiency lights and fully focusable three-stage optics that can be varied between full flood to spot lighting. The mast extends to a maximum 1.8m and it retracts and

locks down neatly into the product’s base. The head rotates through 360° and can be detached via an integral extension cord. The battery gives eight hours operation at full power or 33 hours at 25%, and it recharges from flat in four hours. The operating controls are housed in a waterproof panel, and a remote control module is available as an option.
