Dig into Hillhead

Taking place near Buxton on 26 to 28 June, this year’s Hillhead will be bigger than ever with more than 525 exhibitors serving the construction, quarrying and recycling industries. EHN previews just some of the new launches planned.

Barrus on Stage

Barrus will focus on the upcoming EU Stage V engine emission regulations, being the UK distributor for Yanmar power units. The new standards for engines on non-road machinery come into force in 2019 and 2020. The aim is to progressively reduce particulate and NOx emissions and to phase out equipment with the most polluting engines. Barrus states that Yanmar customers with TNV-CR water-cooled

series industrial engines are already prepared, and John Day, General Manager of the company’s Industrial Division, said that “the engines have a compact profile and the same footprint as Stage IIIA engines allowing for a smooth, trouble-free transition.” Yanmar engines are available as a power pack, radiator and


mounted, including wiring harness and

CAN panel. The diesel particulate

filter (DPF) is designed to resist clogging, even under

light load, and can be mounted in

multiple positions for flexibility where space is limited. “The gas management technology for the DPF, which has a lifecycle of between 6,000 and 10,000 hours and beyond depending on the application, effectively means that the DPF is maintenance-free for the lifetime of a machine,” added John Day.

CRH tackles dust

CRH Plant will demonstrate a new addition to its fleet, namely a self- contained, 30m dust suppression cannon. The unit is mounted on a 3.5-tonne road towable trailer with a generator and water bowser. It is for users on construction, demolition and landfill sites where the client is concerned with airborne dust. CRH can also supply treatments that can be added to the mist to remove odours.


Epiroc to make Hillhead debut

Epiroc UK & Ireland will show hydraulic attachment tools developed and supplied by its factories in Germany and Sweden, building on its Krupp and Atlas Copco heritage. Products on show will

range from hydraulic breakers in the SB range, up to the HB 10000, described as the largest serial hydraulic breaker in the world. Also on the stand will be models from the silent demolition tool range, and Epiroc’s Mining division will present its Speedcut diamond wire cutting machine for the dimension stone industry.

Lightweight Probst launches

Probst Handling Equipment will launch a range of equipment specifically for handling larger tiles, under the Flieguan name. These provide less suction than existing Probst machines that are designed to handle much heavier objects such as paving stones and slabs and kerbs, and the new products are therefore lighter in weight themselves. They are designed to be attached to industrial vacuums commonly found in hire fleets. Several Flieguan models have lifting capacities of 25kg. These

include the hand-held FXH-25 which has a suction plate weighing 1kg and connects to an appropriate vacuum cleaner via a feed hose and connecting cone. Installing tiles is easier as there is no need to grip on the side, especially for the last slab. The FXES-25 model has detachable wheels that facilitate the installation of a large number of floor tiles.
