John Deere

V-stick or joystick transmission controls

John Deere has launched its 605K crawler loader as the latest in its K Series line. The machine features the manufacturer’s PowerTech 4.5-liter Interim Tier 4-certified/Stage IIIB diesel engine with a net 110 horsepower at 2,200 rpm and hydrostatic transmission. Operators may choose between the V-pattern or joystick transmission control option. Total Machine Control allows customized machine response that can be tailored to individual operators. There are two-bucket options: a general-purpose bucket or a 4-in-1 multipurpose bucket with lifetime lubricated bucket pivot pins. A rear ripper design helps turn materials on the jobsite.

GOMACO

Sidewalk paver with dual-mold system

GOMACO’s GT-3200 zero-clearance sidewalk paver, being introduced at the World of Concrete 2013, features a dual-mold system with an aggregate base mold on the front and a sidewalk paving mold on the rear of the machine. It was built specifically for zero-clearance sidewalk rehabilitation projects. The base mold is equipped with two heavy-duty hydraulic cylinders that provide 14 inches of hydraulic lift for setting the grade depth below the track line and raising the mold for the paving pass. The sidewalk paver has a 20-inch-wide, 14-foot-long folding conveyor. The conveyor allows ready-mix trucks to discharge from the street instead of driving over existing curbs to reach the paver. The hydraulic pivoting conveyor rotates 180 degrees to allow for easy hopper loading from either side and to avoid obstacles associated with zero-clearance paving. www.gomaco.com
