Jescraft Spreader Beam Moves Heavy SlabsJescraft
A spreader beam by Jescraft makes moving large slabs or heavy bundles around the yard or fabrication shop easier. Stone handlers now can use a forklift to move loads quickly and safely. Designed specifically for stone fabricators who need to transport material in and out of buildings or make tight turns in a crowded yard, Jescraft’s spreader beam features fork-access slots that provide a secure way of engaging and lifting the beam with a forklift, which is a more mobile and maneuverable alternative to hoisting with a stationary overhead crane. The beam also is ideal for loading and unloading containers.
‘Next Generation’ Pump TruckLATICRETE SUPERCAP
LATICRETE SUPERCAP has added the First Next Generation Mobile Blending Unit (MBU) to its fleet of pump trucks. The power of the pump has been combined with the next generation of self-leveling materials. The System has proven to be a time-saving, cost-effective method in finishing new concrete or capping existing slabs. LATICRETE SUPERCAP applicators use their pump trucks to blend and deliver problem-solving underlayment systems right to the jobsite. Pumping is done from ground level, and material is delivered quickly and efficiently, directly from the hose to the floor on large-scale surface preparation and remediation projects.
MQ POWER tier 4i generator modelsMultiquip
Four generator models powered by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-compliant Tier4i engines are being shipped by Multiquip. These new MQ Power models are the DCA150SSC (150Kva), DCA180SSC (180Kva), DCA220SSC (220Kva) and DCA300SSC (300Kva). Each is equipped with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) to trap particulate matter, or soot, from the diesel engine exhaust. The self-cleaning design uses a regeneration process, manual or automatic, to burn off accumulated soot, once it reaches its factory set limit. The manual option allows the operator to select the best time to begin regeneration. Visual indicators and diagnostic troubleshooting are provided in the control panel to alert the operator.
