Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas debuted two new articulated dump trucks (ADTs), marking its entry into the ADT market. The new HA30 and HA45 ADTs target the 30- and 45-ton segments, Hyundai says. The trucks are now available for order through Hyundai’s North American dealers. The HA30 and HA45, with respective payloads of 28 and 41 tons, are designed to provide a haul truck match for Hyundai’s larger crawler excavators and wheeled loaders. Hyundai says the two models are made primarily for high-volume earthmoving projects, highway construction, and mine and quarry operations.

Caterpillar unveiled the 966 GC wheel loader, which it designed for reliable and efficient operation. According to the company, the Cat-designed components, on-demand fan, load-sensing hydraulics and intuitive controls keep fuel consumption and operating costs low, making the 966 GC a versatile machine that fits the needs of the rental and municipal markets. The Cat C9.3B engine meets Tier 4 Final emission standards with a gross power rating of 321 hp. Cat says the engine’s automatic Cat clean emissions module, including selective catalytic reduction catalyst and diesel particulate filter, works in the background without impacting the production schedule.


Carryback solutions simplify conveyor maintenance

Martin Engineering introduced two secondary conveyor belt cleaners that are engineered for fast and easy maintenance. According to the company, the design of the DT2S and DT2H reversible cleaners reduces system downtime and labor for cleanup or service while helping to prolong the service life of other conveyor components. The cleaners, which feature a split-track blade cartridge that slides in and out on a stainless-steel mandrel, can be serviced or replaced without stopping the belt when on-site safety approvals are in place. Martin Engineering says both products significantly reduce material carryback, and they’re engineered to accommodate reversing conveyors to avoid damage to the belt or splicing.

Haver & Boecker Niagara launched its next-generation Niagara T-Class vibrating screen. The company says the new design retains the technical benefits the original concentric technology is known for while improving screening uptime and performance with new features. According to Haver & Boecker Niagara, the T-Class deck frame is now primarily lockbolted rather than welded to provide optimum strength, reliability and safety. Haver & Boecker Niagara says lockbolts are more effective than welding in the demanding, load-bearing, high-vibration operation of a vibrating screen to ensure the machine’s structural integrity.
