Durable, powerful, compact, easy to handle, maintenance-friendly, efficient and much more – that’s the promise for the i.Comp from Kaeser Kompressoren. This versatile trades and workshop compressor is suitable for continuous operation and, thanks to its variable-speed motor, there’s no need for an air receiver. Even at cable lengths of 150 metres, it delivers constant, oil-free compressed air with a pressure of up to 11 bar.
The kind of compact design that makes them the ideal fit for confined construction sites is what Wacker Neuson is boasting for its two new tracked excavators in the 4- or 5-metric ton class. The tracked conventional tail ET42 excavator and the tracked zero-tail EZ50, benefit from high lifting and digging power, whilst four additional control circuits allow the use of a great variety of attachments. The machine is operated simply by means of a joystick, jog dial, 3.5in. display and keypad.
ZERO TAIL SWING
It’s the zero tail swing design that makes the Yanmar ViO26-6 particularly suited to the tightest spaces, while its dimensions allow easy transportation (even with accessories) on a trailer. Described by the manufacturer as powerful, durable and comfortable, a flow sharing hydraulics system ensures smooth control, while a large operator station with state-of-the-art instrumentation and ergonomic design makes the mini excavator comfortable and productive for the operator.
COMPACT PLANT RANGE
A major series of launches from Bobcat includes the R2-Series generation of 5-6 tonne Stage V compliant mini-excavators – the E50z, E55z and E60 models. There will also be two compact wheel loaders, (CWLs) and two small articulated loaders (SALs), as well as a move into light compaction equipment
