Case Construction Equipment has introduced its first pneumatic-tire compactor, the PT240, an eight-wheeled machine designed for rolling hot-mix-asphalt surface treatments, such as chip-and-seal, as well as soil-stabilization applications.
Case Construction Equipment has introduced its first pneumatic-tire compactor, the PT240, an eight-wheeled machine designed for rolling hot-mix-asphalt surface treatments, such as chip-and-seal, as well as soil-stabilization applications. The PT240 has a compaction width of 78 inches and a fully ballasted operating weight of 52,910 pounds. With a turbocharged engine rated at 99 horsepower, the PT240 can operate on grades up to 25 degrees and on materials with high rolling resistance. The compactor features standard hydrostatic steering, independent axles, four-plus-four tire configuration (with 2-inch tire overlap), and automotive-style controls with left- and right-side operating positions.
The GRW 280i series pneumatic compactors has been updated with 114-horsepower Deutz Tier 4-Interim engines.
Considering the increasing importance of the pneumatic-tire roller for today's asphalt mixes, design enhancements in Bomag's new 99-hp BW24RH and 131-hp BW27RH should be well received. The new machines are hydrostatically driven, providing infinite speed control to 12 mph and smoothing forward/reverse changes.
The 580N EP backhoe loader is positioned as an “efficient power” (EP) version of the 580N.
Staying true to its legacy as an early adopter of SCR technology, Case Construction Equipment has introduced two Tier 4-Final skid steers (SR270 and SV300) and two Tier 4-Final compact track loaders (TR340, TV380) that use SCR to achieve T4F, as well as two skid steers (SR240, SV280) that use a particulate matter catalyst solution (no DPF) to meet regulations.
