Fontaine Heavy-Haul rolled out the Magnitude 60HD, a new modular lowbed trailer. According to the company, the 60HD is a heavy-duty, 60-ton trailer that hits a “sweet spot” for operators who need more capacity than standard 55-ton models but want to avoid the financial jump to a 65- or 70-ton trailer. The Magnitude 60HD hauls 60 tons in 16 ft. utilizing the Fontaine EQ2 spreader and two additional axles that are in a three-plus-two configuration. Equipped with a modular tridem bogie, Fontaine Heavy-Haul says the trailer can connect with four different deck options so users can match their load configuration to the task at hand – from a flat level, drop-side rail or beam deck, to an extendable deck that will be available early this year.

Belt splice and fastening system offers strength, flexibility

ASGCO added to its line of conveyor belt products with the Grizzly screw splice, which provides a strong and flexible rubber splice that screws directly onto a conveyor belt with accuracy and precision. The Grizzly screw splice conveyor belt splicing and fastening system delivers power, strength and flexibility in every application, according to ASGCO. Compared to traditional metal fasteners, ASGCO says the splice is stronger, wears less and has a low-profile silhouette that is easier on conveyor system components. The screw splice includes self-tapping and self-drilling screws that uphold the toughness of the belt by passing through the belt carcass.

Keep debris from collecting underneath scales

CynDes Solutions introduced a debris control solution for elevated platform scales that keeps the scale structure inspection ready. Control of debris allows for efficient system operation with reduced cleaning requirements, CynDes says. The ability to control propagation of debris to load cells and support structure provides operators with confidence that the scale will be protected from blowing snow, dust, dirt and other loose debris, the company adds. Installation of the debris control solution is completed with no scale modifications and can be done by a preferred scale maintenance provider.

Hammers built for high production on large excavators

The new H190 S and H215 S Performance Series hammers deliver consistent breaking power, according to Caterpillar. Cat says the hammers’ efficient operation cycle results in less waste from internal heat and more power delivered to the tool. With piston and tool matched in diameter and mass, the hammers offer increased power transmission frequency. Operators can switch power mode from high frequency/low power to low frequency/high power, giving the ability to fine tune power to the material being broken. While powerful, Cat says the hammers lead in operator comfort and machine protection with their buffering material that dampens vibration feedback to the carrier.
