The Manitowoc 16000 Crawler Crane now is available with a fixed-jib option as well as the standard luffing jib. The fixed jib has a 93-metric-ton (102-ton) capacity and a maximum length of 42.7 m (140 ft). The new jib reduces rigging time for lift applications in which a luffing jib is not required or feasible. Manitowoc Cranes; 920-684-6621; www.manitowoc.com

The Atlas Copco Boomer E1 C-DH drill rig features a drilling coverage area of up to 95 sq meters, or 1,023 sq ft. This reach is a significant improvement over the company's earlier diesel-hydraulic face-drilling rig, the L1 C-DH. The rig does not require external power or water sources in order to operate, allowing for its use in both new tunnel construction and for the expansion and repair of existing tunnels. The rig comes with Atlas Copco's Rig Control System. Further, it can be upgraded for additional automation. Atlas Copco Underground Rock Excavation; www.atlascopco.us

The VMLogix Carbide Cutter G3 mulching head attachment for skid steers features a spiral-tooth pattern that is designed to maintain constant contact with the target material. The carbide-tipped teeth are made of heat-treated steel and arranged in a two-stage cutting chamber, with staggered counter teeth and a shear bar. This configuration results in smaller debris and prevents jamming and wrapping. The Carbide Cutter G3 is available in widths of 51 in., 61 in. and 71 in.
