This week we look at an upgraded concrete pumper chassis from Mack Trucks and a rebar-bender for Bobcat loaders.
The Bobcat Rebar Bender is designed to fit a Bob-Tach mount, and it is able to bend rebar up to No. 6 grade to angles up to 200°. A wired remote control allows for the operation of the rebar bender from outside the cab. The rebar bender comes with five mandrels for different sizes of rebar, and an optional bar stop is available for making repeated bends with ease. Bobcat Co.; 701-241-8700; www.bobcat.com
Mack is now offering its TerraPro Concrete Pumper with a high-performance MP8 engine. Available in ratings from 425 hp to 505 hp, the MP8 can deliver 1,760 ft-lb of torque. It uses a Mack ClearTech selective catalytic reduction system to meet emissions standards. The TerraPro Cabover is designed to navigate tight turns for better mobility on jobsites.
