Designed for heavy breaking applications and demolition work at floor level, Hilti introduces its newest electro pneumatic tool, the new TE 3000-AVR breaker. Weighing 65 pounds, the TE 3000-AVR delivers 50 foot-pounds of impact energy to break up to six tons of material per hour at a rate comparable with a 60- to 65-pound air tool. The tool features Hilti's active vibration reduction system as well as an active cooling system to reduce wear and tear on the motor, electronics and hammering mechanism. The TE 3000-AVR also has a brushless SR motor that eliminates the need to replace carbon brushes, allowing longer service intervals between service and twice the expected motor life.

General Pipe Cleaners

General Pipe Cleaners' four new Auto-Feed power drain cleaners are engineered with automatic feeds and open drums. The Speedrooter 92R, Metro-Rooter, Mini-Rooter XP and Drain-Rooter PH are easier, cleaner and faster than manual machines. The variable-speed feed drives and retracts cable at up to 20 feet per minute, and the power feed and guide tube combination allows the cable to feed smoothly into the line while keeping the operator's hands clean and away from the spinning cable. The open drum design allows visibility to the condition of the cable after it comes back from rental so it can be cleaned and lubricated if necessary.

Volvo Construction Equipment

The latest generation Volvo L20F (pictured) and L25F compact wheel loaders from Volvo are designed for more operator comfort and improved compact design. The machines were developed incorporating feedback from operators around the world. The frame concept features an articulating/oscillating joint in the center of the machine between the front and rear frame. This, combined with 100-percent operator-selectable differential locks on the front and rear axles as standard, provides optimal stability and traction on rough terrain. The air- and oil-cooled Volvo diesel engine complies with EPA Tier-3 standards. Separate working hydraulic pumps improve cycle times because steering actions do not affect the speed of the lifting arm.

Husqvarna Construction Products introduces its newest remote-controlled demolition robot, the DXR 140. The DXR 140 is available with a 14.75- or 20.12-hp motor and it allows the operator to utilize up to 100 percent of the breaker's force. The power output and small design allow it to work in restricted spaces where the substrate requires a lightweight machine. With a reach up to 12 feet, including breaker, the DXR 140's arm system can be rotated 360 degrees without restrictions. The outriggers can be controlled individually, allowing it to remain stable even on unlevel surfaces or when close to walls. The Bluetooth remote-control is easy to use with a clear, plain-text display showing when it's time for various servicing jobs.
