DX490LC and DX530 Excavators

West Fargo, N.D.

The Doosan DX490LC-3 and DX530LC-3 excavators are equipped with upgrades that provide power and performance in road building, site development, oil and gas pipeline development and other construction applications. These machines replace the DX480 and DX520 respectively, and have been designed with improvements that include increased engine horsepower and lift capacity, improved bucket digging force, enhanced cooling capabilities and better fuel efficiency. The excavators are powered by a six-cylinder, 389 horsepower, water-cooled diesel engine that optimized for use with a cooled exhaust gas recirculation system, a diesel oxidation catalyst and a diesel particulate filter.

Paver Edging Spikes

Paver Edging Spikes
Edgetite Products Inc.’s paver edging spike makes paver installations stronger. Edgetite spikes help solve the separation problem that can occur when installing paver edging with common spikes. They were created when a landscape/hardscape contractor continually encountered this problem while installing paver edging. Edgetite spikes are unique, because of the patent-pending, angled-tip design. As an Edgetite spike is hammered into the compacted base, the angled tip deflects away from the installation as the head pushes the edge restraint tightly against the brick.

Tulsa, Okla.

HIT- HY 200 Adhesive Anchor System
The Hilti HIT-HY 200 Adhesive Anchor System has Hilti Safe Set Technology that eliminates this factor almost entirely and improves reliability and productivity, because no manual hole cleaning is required to obtain optimum performance. For holes that clean themselves, use the new Hilti TE-CD and TE-YD Hollow Drill Bits in conjunction with the Hilti VC 20/40 vacuum. Dust is removed by the Hilti VC 20/40 Vacuum System, while drilling is in progress for faster drilling and a virtually dustless working environment. This installation is only allowed with Hilti HIT-HY 200.
