Engine solutions from Barrus

E.P. Barrus showed new engines from John Deere that are designed to meet the requirements of the EU Stage V emissions regulations. John Day, General Manager of Barrus’ Industrial Division, said, “John Deere has been employing DPF (diesel particulate filter) technologies since Interim Tier 4/Stage IIIb, so Final Tier 4 engines that are already in use and equipped with DPF will need no further modifications whatsoever to comply with the 2019 Stage V regulations.” Highlighted models included the 6068CP550-G, which has a

200kVA unit that can be used in generators. It incorporates a DPF, DOC (diesel oxidation catalyst) and requires the use of AdBlue, but the manufacturer says the engine consumes a smaller proportion of the

additive than some other engines. John Deere’s Stage V range for generators extends from 30kVA to 315kVA. Barrus also had a separate stand to promote Loncin generators.

The new LC7000i inverter is a compact, low-noise variable speed model rated at 6kW. Its sine wave output allows it to run sensitive electrical equipment and a tank of fuel allows 6.5 hours’ running time under full load, says Barrus. The LC10000-AS model is the largest open framed model in the range and is rated at 7.3kW.

01869 363675 Bobcat’s electric attraction

Plantworx saw the first appearance in the UK of Bobcat’s new E10e electric mini excavator, a battery-powered, zero tail swing model. The manufacturer states that the machine has been introduced to meet customer demand for a

zero emission and low noise mini for work indoors and at locations such as in gardens and confined spaces. Its width of 71cm enables it to pass through standard doors and in and out of lifts. The E10e is based on the diesel powered E10 1-tonne mini, which is now designated the E10z.

The battery-powered machine has identical external dimensions and is claimed to offer equal or better performance. Bobcat says it can work continuously for four hours on a single charge in standard working conditions, but by coupling the machine to an optional external ‘supercharger’, it can be recharged to 80% of the capacity in less than two hours. Bomag’s two green contenders

Bomag showed two eye-catching variants of its popular BW120AD tandem roller. The BW120ADe is a prototype electric version powered by six batteries, four for the drive system and two for the hydraulics and steering. The machine on display has a quoted running time of up to 2.5 hours, with a similar re-charging period, but the manufacturer says that a version offering up to four hours’ operating time is under development. The other unit shown was

an LPG version targeted at contractors working in low- emission zones such as are being introduced in London. The gas bottle slides neatly into position behind the front roller, and the quoted running time is four hours.

Thwaites’ super seven

Thwaites displayed a dumper with a 7-tonne skip capacity derived from its 6-tonne model. The skip has a lower front edge for clear forward vision, and a 180° front facing camera is fitted to give a view of the front blind spot for low-speed manoeuvring. Day-glow yellow steps, grab rails and roll bar highlight the

important three points of contact and the machine has the same axles as used on Thwaites’ 9-tonne dumper to give a wider, more stable track. The engine is EU Stage V-compliant and does not require AdBlue.
