All-Terrain Crane: Low Cab for a Closer View All-Terrain Crane: Low Cab for a Closer View The CD4430 is a 30-ton, cab-down, rough-terrain crane intended for work in railroads, bridge construction and refineries. The crane’s low profile increases stability and improves handling in rough environments. It features a six-sided boom and is powered by a Tier 3 Cummins engine. An optional Hi-Rail gear system can be integrated into the crane for use in rail construction. Standard features include a two-door high-visibility cab, all-wheel drive and crab steering.

Laser Measurements: Rugged Handheld Design Laser Measurements: Rugged Handheld Design The DW030 laser-based distance measure allows for the quick measurement of distance, square footage and volume on the jobsite. The measure has a rubber over-molding andis designed to withstand a 6-ft drop; It also is water- and dust-resistant. The unit features large, clearly marked buttons and a backlit display. The laser is projected from the back of the unit during measurements so that users do not have to take the device’s height into account during calculations. DeWalt; 800-439-258; www.dewalt.com
Fire-protection duct wrap: Easier To Install Fire-protection duct wrap: Easier To Install The Fire Barrier Duct Wrap 615+ is a fire-resistant wrap that is designed to meet ASTM E 2336 fire-test requirements. The lightweight, flexible wrap is made of a ceramic fiber surrounded in scrim-enforced foil, and it is significantly lighter and thinner than earlier 3M duct wraps. It can withstand temperatures up to 2,190°F and can provide up to two hours of fire protection for grease and air ventilation ducts. The duct wrap weighs approximately 6 lb per cu ft and requires a less elaborate installation than gypsum-wallboard shafts. The complete foil outer layer reduces dust and increases the overall wrap strength. 3M; 888-364-3577; www.3m.com
Redesigned Paving Materials Vehicle: New Hydraulics Redesigned Paving Materials Vehicle: New Hydraulics The Shuttle Buggy Materials Transfer Vehicle now features hydraulic drive control for each wheel. The change to hydraulic motors from an axle-and-gear configuration is designed to improve handling and reduce wear on the vehicle’s transmission. The Shuttle Buggy MTV remixes segregated asphalt mix and loads it into the paver, reducing temperature and consistency differences in the mix. Roadtec; 423-265-0600; www.roadtec.com
Heavy-Equipment Monitoring system: Tracks Fuel Usage Heavy-Equipment Monitoring system: Tracks Fuel Usage The Spectrum Equipment Service System monitors fuel usage and maintenance schedules for service trucks, fuel trucks and other heavy equipment.
