FlexiROC T30 R

Atlas Copco
Commerce City, Colo.

Atlas Copco has launched the FlexiROC T30 R radio remote control tophammer drill rig, equipped with either a COP 1240 or COP 1640 drill for two- to 3.5-inch holes. The standard hydraulic, carousel-type rod-handling system uses 12-foot rods. The carousel carries four rods for a maximum drilling depth of 57 feet. The FlexiROC T30 R comes with an interim Tier 4 Cummins QSB4.5 turbo-charged engine, providing improved diesel consumption over its predecessor, the ROC D3 RRC. The rig’s low center of gravity and high ground clearance provide mobility over the most challenging terrain.

Nontoxic, Green Method of Deterring Pest Birds
Nontoxic, Green Method of Deterring Pest Birds
Bird-B-Gone Inc.’s Bird-OFF Clear Gel is made from all-natural, environmentally safe ingredients and is safe for humans, birds and animals. The gel is the original bio repellent gel created as an efficient and economical means of deterring pest birds. Birds have a natural distaste for sticky things, making Bird-OFF Clear Gel ideal for any surfaces birds may congregate or roost on, including pipes, HVAC units, conduits, I-beams and ledges. The gel is heat resistant, non-corrosive and easily applied with a caulking gun. Once in contact with Bird–OFF Clear Gel, birds are presented with a smell and texture they don’t like.

ECCO Mobile automatically generates a list of suitable products, either by vehicle application or by measuring ambient work site noise, using the app’s built-in dB meter. Users also can access detailed product information, listen to sound samples and locate ECCO dealers. It is available at the App Store and Google Play. For additional information or details of a local distributor, contact ECCO Customer Service at 800-635-5900.
