Be FRAP ready
The beFRAPready.com website from KPI-JCI helps users determine whether reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) is right for your next project. The website’s cost-savings calculator can help determine a ballpark figure on how much money using RAP and/or FRAP can save, and also offers case studies, technical papers and frequently asked questions. A dealer locator is also on the site to help users find the nearest FRAP expert.
Just load and go
Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies’ new Load’N’Go Sportsman utility body replaces the company’s Lowboy model. The lightweight transferable service body that is a universal fit for all major makes of pickup trucks is built rugged to work on half-ton and larger trucks, and it can be moved on and off the bed fully loaded in a matter of minutes. The Sportsman’s new design features: a hinged aluminum diamond plate rear door that safely secures parts, tools and equipment in a pull-out drawer; two full-length side storage compartments over the wheels; and protective black spray-on liner. The transferable service body does not require holes to be drilled into the truck and uses a four corner tie-down clamping system.
Digital remote-control protects workers
Brokk AB’s 100 demolition machine introduced at World of Concrete features a more compact design, yet 35-percent greater breaking power. It replaces the Brokk 90 machine. A new digital remote-control box allows the operator to stay clear of any hazards on the jobsite, and monitor some of the key functions of the machine on an LCD display.
The Long Range Layout Laser from LaserLine Mfg. featuring “LineLokr” technology allows the user to snap a 3,000-foot laser straight line with the push of a button.
The ‘Monster Brokk’
The Brokk 800 demolition machine seen at World of Concrete and referred to by the company as the “Monster Brokk,” is more than twice as big as Brokk’s previous largest model, the Brokk 400. It’s the most powerful demolition robot available in the Brokk lineup and currently on the market. The Brokk 800 is available in two versions, the 800S and 800P. The 800S features Brokk’s signature three-arm system and offers a maximum reach of nearly 30 feet. When equipped with the included MB1000 breaker, the Brokk 800S produces 1,500 feet per pound at the tip of the tool, nearly twice the hitting power of the Brokk 400. Specially designed with added heat protection, the 800P is intended for use in challenging process applications.
Single and dual-engine configurations
The Schwarze M6000 street sweeper is a rugged mechanical broom sweeper, available in single- and dual-engine configurations. The sweeper can be mounted on a variety of conventional and cabover chassis. The mechanical sweeper works by picking up the debris from the roadway and moving it into the sweeping path, where the rear broom sweeps the debris onto a conveyor system, which in turn carries the debris to the 5-cubic-yard hopper.
Easily switch pipe lengths
The Spin Screed is an aluminum pipe, up to 22 feet long, that is caused to spin by a heavy-duty right-angle drill opposite to the direction it is being advanced. This is so that concrete rolls up in front of the screed cutting off high spots and filling in low spots. The aluminum pipe screed can be purchased or cut into any length up to 22 feet, making screeds tailor-made for various jobs. Contractors can switch from one length of pipe to another in just a matter of seconds by means of quick disconnects.
Tough, reliable gearbox
Rexnord Industries says its new Falk V-Class line of gear drives is designed for maximum uptime and durable performance. The housing’s shape and features were designed through the use of computational fluid dynamics to enhance the drive’s thermal dissipation qualities. The drive incorporates Magnum no-leak seals with oil drain backs and purgeable grease chamber to eliminate oil leaks.
Armour-Seal from Rhomar Industries is a semi-permanent, high-strength rubberized polymer-blended undercoating used to stop rust and corrosion. Resistant to sodium, magnesium and calcium chloride, it has passed salt spray test ASTM B-117 at greater than 1,000 hours. The company says that Armour-Seal can be applied in the shop, and is used extensively on frame and chassis components such as oil pans, diesel fuel tanks, brake cables and wiring harnesses of work trucks and other vehicles. Featuring a pistol-grip spray gun applicator, Armour-Seal is non-flammable and HAPS-free with low-volatile organic components.
