Backfill Blade for TRX Trenchers


For trenching and backfilling utility lines to water pipes, contractors and do-it-yourselfers can get their jobs done faster with the new backfill blade option for Toro TRX dedicated trenchers. Contractors using Toros TRX 15 and TRX 19 models can install the new backfill blade on these dedicated trenchers in less than one minute, giving users the ability to more efficiently backfill trenches on any jobsite. The Toro TRX backfill blade mounts directly to the trencher, locking into place with a simple pin mechanism. No special tools are required to mount the backfill blade, and it can be quickly be put on, or taken off, in less than one minute. Weighing 55 lbs (25 kg), the new backfill blade measures 40.5 inches (103 cm) wide, 45.6 inches (116 cm) long, and it stands 18.6 inches (47 cm) high. Toros TRX trenchers are designed with a low center of gravity and a large footprint for increased stability on side hills and smooth operation on uneven terrain. Plus, these machines feature a less-intimidating control system that follows the same design of Toros Dingo TX controls. All traction and trenching functions can be done with three levers, allowing contractors and homeowners to quickly learn and master this system.

BPR100/80D Reversible Vibratory Plate


The largest of BOMAGs reversible plates, the BPR100/80D is a powerful compactor designed for large projects. It offers contractors and rental customers a faster working speed and greater compaction force, as well as advanced productivity and control features. Ideal for work on granular, cohesive and mixed soils, the BPR100/80D features a 14.75-horsepower Hatz air-cooled diesel engine. Its new vibratory exciter design provides a maximum working speed of 88.6 feet per minute, and a gradeability of 35 percent. Maximum vibration frequency is 3,360 vibrations per minute, and centrifugal force is 22,500 pounds. Both vibration frequency and centrifugal force are easily adjusted using the throttle control. Heavy-duty wear-resistant base plates feature reinforced edges and have a working width of 25 inches. It also comes standard with BOMAGs exclusive Economizer system. By detecting soil stiffness, the Economizer system provides an accurate overview of soil compaction status. It allows jobs to be completed more quickly, with up to 25 percent fewer passes, saving fuel costs and reducing machine wear. The Economizer system also helps the operator achieve optimum compaction by avoiding over-compaction and identifying and eliminating soft spots.

Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) Engines


In addition to its current line of engines, Subaru offers a new line of electronic fuel injection (EFI) engines, which are ideally suited for use with a variety of equipment, including welders, generators, pressure washers and lawnmowers. The line includes two models, the EH72 V-Twin and EH72 UTV, both of which are designed to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, while providing fast, easy starts in a wide range of ambient temperatures. The EFI engines run on an open-loop system, which utilizes an electronic control unit (ECU). Using several different sensors that are able to accurately detect manifold pressure, ambient temperature and throttle position, the ECU is constantly relaying information to the injector, which is then able to deliver the proper air-to-fuel ratio. The result of this continuous relay of information is an engine that is always running at an optimal level, resulting in better fuel economy and emissions control. Allowing for differences in operating speed, applications and fuel type, the estimated fuel economy improvements are 11 to 25 percent over that of a similar carbureted engine. Additionally, exhaust emissions are reduced by more than 20 percent. Both models are available in a 653 cc or 720 cc configuration, with power outputs ranging from 20- to 27-horsepower. The engines feature a two-barrel manifold with a fuel injector for each cylinder. This allows each cylinder to operate independently of the other, which aids in fuel optimization and also in improving the engines efficiency and performance.

CS Unitecs new Non-sparking Hand Tools are manufactured from Copper-Beryllium or special Aluminum-Bronze alloys that are certified for safe use in areas where hazardous, flammable or combustible vapors, liquids, dusts or residues may be present. This line of safety tools consists of hammers, flange wedges, striking wrenches, pipe wrenches, sockets, screwdrivers, shovels and other hand tools. They comply with the ATEX Directive stating that no tools which can cause sparks are permissible in Ex Zones 0, 1 and 2 (Gas, Mists or Vapors); Zones 20, 21 and 22 (Dusts) and M1 and M2 for mining. Each tool is laser engraved for the proper Ex Zone classifications indicating the zones for which it can be used. These Non-sparking Safety Tools from CS Unitec are specifically designed to eliminate the risk of sparks at sites where explosive atmospheres may be present. Appropriate applications include oil drilling platforms, petrochemical plants, oil refineries, natural gas installations, ammunition plants, mining and other industries where non-sparking safety tools are required. The non-magnetic feature of these alloys also make them ideal for working on special machinery with powerful magnets such as MRI machines. CS Unitecs safety tools are forged for the highest quality in hand tools. They are corrosion resistant.
