Tier 4-Compliant Off-Road Truck: Meets Emissions Regs As new EPA emissions regulations take effect in 2011, Tier 4-compliant machines are gaining ground. Set to debut in North America at CONEXPO-CON/AGG later this year, the G Series 775 Off-Highway Truck will be the first Cat machine to go into production with a Tier 4 final emissions solution. Caterpillar Inc.; 309-675-8995; www.cat.com
Demo Hammer: Lightweight Design At the World of Concrete 2011 trade exposition, Makita featured some of its latest demolition hammers, including the corded 11-lb HM0870C. The hammer has a variable speed control, managing 1,100 to 2,650 blows per minute. The demolition hammer features electronic speed control as well as a soft-start motor. The hammer’s relatively light weight allows it to be used comfortably on horizontal demolition jobs. Furthermore, the tool features 12-bit angle settings for quick adjustments to different jobsite conditions and an automatic brush cutoff, which prevents damage to the commutator during use.
