In the winter versatile: Loaders as “Snow-Kings”

To facilitate the task of removing the snow, many local authority have already decided to invest in a Kramer machine. The main task of the loader is  to clearing streets and parking spaces as quick as possible so that the residents have access to roads. Due to snowfall, it is not uncommon, that the machines are used  at night, on holidays or weekends. Most machines are used between eight and ten hours a day and are indispensable for those areas. “Due to its agility, speed and flexibility, the machine gives completely new opportunities for companies and can be used for a variety of work even after the winter,” says the producer from Pfullendorf. It continues: “The two attachment points allow the optimal use of the machines, whether snow plow, spreader or only snow blower. That means nearly all winter service implements can be attached and that makes the Kramer to a Snow King.” Especially the telescopes suit well for clearing the streets. In addition, due to their high loading height, they are also suitable for for filling the gritters. “Icy roads are for Kramer Machines no big deals” hightlights the producer. The rigid frame and the 4×4 steering wheel grants for stability and precise work. In addition, the company offers many options that are prerequisites for many companies. For example, additional hydraulicpower, low-speed control, depressurrized return, hand throttle, load stabilizer and much more. Furthermore the manufacturer provides the preheating of hydraulic oil and fuel. “Additionally, the variety of attachable devices and system compatibility of Kramer loaders makes the all investment to a valuable voucher for the future”.

Perfectly made for roads and civil engineering

At the TiefbauLive exhibition in booth B129 Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment is going to present the current machines and attachments of the brand Doosan and Bobcat. Amongst others the short- tail excavator E50 from Bobcat will also be displayed. This machine has an operating weight of 5 tons and maximum digging depth of 3524 mm. It has a breaking load of 30,4 kN at the showel shaft and 41,2 kN with the showel. The excavator is equipped with a Quick-Oil ful-hydraulic-quick-change-system, which reduces the time of changing attachments enormously. Thank to ful hydraulic clutch in combination with the “Tool Control” (chip detection), the excavator can detect the attachments itself and regulate the pressure and the oil flow automatically. You can probably meet with the Doosan DX140LCR in their booth as well. Due to round shape of the superstructure in combination with the rear swing radius of 1.48 m or alternatively the surrounding diameter of only 3.36 m, the 15 ton the excavator is according to the manufacturer “perfectly made for roads- and civil engineering, no matter out side or in the cities, the excavator can be applied everywhere, where high performance is demanded in a small places.” The another hightlight will be the Bobcat compact tracked loader T870 with the grader as an attachment. It is the most powerful loader produced by Bobcat so far. “Combined with tremendous power and performance with an exceptional height, it can be said, that we have put a new stadards for skid steer loaders”, tells Bobcat. The machine perfectly suits for selfmade attachments, which requires alot of power like a grader. This machine is going to be exposed by the company Bobcat in Bensheim (Germany), which is the branch office of Doosan-Infracore-Group. With 15 offices, Bobcat is the one of the biggest company as a construction equipments dealer in Germany.

Excavator attachment by Indeco

During construction of the bypass in Farchant, where the company Gebr Stort out of Egfling was also involved, an excavator by Hitachi type 280 with a hydraulic hammer Indeco HP 2500 and a Komatsu 180 with Indeco MES 1750 as well as a Case 210 with Indeco HP 2000 were used. The hydraulic hammers Indeco are equipped with an intelligent hydraulic system that is able to automatically adjust the punch and beat frequency to the hardness of the material. By this, the hammers ensure maximum productivity. A specifically developed central lubrication ensures that the movable parts inside the hydraulic hammer are working smoothly and reliably. A double shock system provides for a very small load on the excavator boom, since only a little bit of vibration is transmitted.

In Seefeld more than 20 new and used hydraulic hammers by Indeco are available to customers for carriers from 0.6 to 120 t. Furthermore, 250 plus fitting adapters and quick coupler plates are available. This equipment and technical expertise allow SAT the construction and fabrication of adapter plates in the latest version with hydraulic coupling systems such as the LH Likufix, OilQuick and Coupfix up to special hammer cases, for example for underwater use.
