Case Construction Equipment introduced the TV620B compact track loader (CTL), which the company says is the “largest and most powerful” CTL ever built. The TV620B has a 114-hp and 6,200-pound rated operating capacity. According to Case CE, it includes standard adjustable electrohydraulic controls, high-flow hydraulics, auto ride control, one-way self-leveling, a hydraulic coupler, an auto-reversing fan, LED lights and a one-year subscription to Case SiteWatch telematics. Operators of the TV620B will have access to the Case SiteConnect module and can remotely connect and update software through the SiteManager app. They will also have access to the Case Uptime Center for collaborative fleet management between Case CE, the local Case CE dealer and the equipment owner.

Curry Supply Co. debuted a new line of truck bodies in the Keystone and Keystone Pro, which feature heavy-duty aluminum designs. The Keystone and Keystone Pro will be positioned alongside Curry Supply’s current offerings of Stellar, Autocrane, Reading and Wilcox bodies. According to the company, all Keystone bodies feature a 52-in.-wide and 129-in.-deep bed, with tie-down rings and a textured floor for added safety. Each side features four compartments – three vertical and one horizontal. Every compartment is designed with at least 20 in. of depth and adjustable shelving. Protected door seals and stainless steel rotary latches keep all compartments secure and watertight. The Keystone Pro features a crane tower that can hold up to a 25,000-ft.-pound crane, while still providing space for tool and equipment storage.

The enhanced M1700X mobile washing screen from Terex Washing Systems is a redesign of the M1700 and an improvement on the M range of mobile washing screens. The M1700X can produce up to five products – three aggregate and two sands – in applications such as aggregate, recycling, industrial sands and mining. The screen can be connected with the FM120 C-2G, which allows sand to be recovered when both machines work together. Terex Washing Systems says the M1700X features increased media wear life, an adjustable spray system, a standard hydraulic raise and lower, standard hydraulic tensioning and a one-piece catch box for easy machine reconfiguration. The model was redesigned to focus on wet processing efficiency, with a 16 percent increase in spray capacity across all decks, configurable catch box outlets and configurable blending to maintain material specifications.


Tire pressure control system designed for trailers

The Tiremaax Pro-LB tire pressure control system inflates, relieves and equalizes tire pressures across all wheel positions, with the added benefit of load-based pressure adjustments. Unlike a passenger car, Hendrickson Trailer Commercial Vehicle says commercial vehicles experience significant changes in overall vehicle weight between the loaded and unloaded condition. The change is so significant, the company says, that the optimum air pressure for the tires is different for laden versus unladen vehicles. According to Hendrickson, tire manufacturers provide complex charts to calculate the tire pressure required for a specific axle load. So Tiremaax Pro-LB will help to eliminate the guesswork of tire pressure management by monitoring the pressure in the air springs and reacting to changing loads automatically. Tiremaax Pro-LB will be available sometime in the second half of 2021, the company adds. 


Explosives system offers new possibilities

Orica launched 4D, a bulk explosives technology enabling real-time tailoring of explosives energy to geology across a blast. According to Orica, 4D delivers improvements in fragmentation, on-bench productivity and an overall reduction in drill and blast costs. The tech enables users to match a greater range of explosives energy across a mine’s geology and target specific blast outcomes in real-time. By combining emulsion blended with ammonium nitrate porous prills, the company says 4D supports both pumped and augered loading methods across dry, wet and dewatered hole conditions. Orica says 4D delivers up to 23 percent more relative bulk strength for hard rock applications and up to a 43 percent reduction in soft rock.
