Recognizing leadership
The construction equipment industry has a Hall
of Fame whose mission is to recognize, celebrate
and preserve the history of outstanding people
in the construction equipment industry whose
inventions, ideas, leadership and courage have
made supreme contributions to the industry and
to our quality of life.
It was originally created in 1993, and after a
period of inactivity, the Association of Equip-
ment Manufacturers (AEM) re-introduced it this year as the AEM
Hall of Fame with ve new inductees. Candidates were judged by an
independent panel of industry experts and supporters on how well they
exemplied ve guiding principles: innovation, industry contributions,
leadership, corporate citizenship/social responsibility and sustainability.
Our inductees this year represent some of the most inuential
minds in the history of construction and equipment manufacturing,
AEM President Dennis Slater said at the induction ceremony.
This issue, I will present two of these people to you and in an up-
coming issue, I will cover the other three.
Sir Anthony Bamford
Before he became chairman of JCB in 1975,
Sir Anthony Bamford established JCB SA, the
companys French subsidiary in Paris, which has
become the model for JCBs worldwide devel-
opment. Under his leadership, the company has
grown from a regional equipment manufacturer to
one with 300 products and manufacturing plants
on four continents selling to over 150 nations.
JCB has won more than 50 awards for exports, marketing, design, tech-
nology and for its care for the environment, among them 23 Queens
Awards for Technological and Export achievement. He has also over-
seen efforts to promote industry workforce development. One is a
company educational centre now being developed to educate students
in engineering, manufacturing processes and international business.
LeRoy G. Hagenbuch
LeRoy G. Hagenbuch, P.E. is co-Founder
and president of the engineering rm Philippi-
Hagenbuch, Inc. His patent for the rst commer-
cially available tailgate designed for off-highway
haul trucks was only the beginning. He is now
credited with 89 patents, 51 in the United States
and 38 in other countries. The most recent patent
renes rear-ejection technology, allowing opera-
tors to push the load from the back of a haul truck instead of raising the
bed. To advance the process of mine reclamation, he developed many
products to efciently haul overburden and other materials. Hagenbuch
has made outreach and industry progress a mainstay of his career. He
has written white papers on vital industry topics, spoken at conferences
and trade shows worldwide, and been active with many associations on
behalf of the industry. His operating philosophy has been to extend the
safety focus beyond training and awareness; each Philippi-Hagenbuch
engineer is challenged on the safety of their product designs. In ad-
dition, each staff and production meeting at the company starts with a
discussion of a critical safety topic.
Best wishes for 2009.

Reaches difcult spots
The low-prole, telescoping-boom action
of the new Gradall XL 4100 III excavator
allows the unit to work where conventional
knuckle booms cannot, under bridges and
tree limbs or in tunnels. A live boom exten-
sion gives the ability to reach over obstacles
and into ditches.
The carrier is available in two versions:
a 6 x 4 model which weighs approximately
47,500 pounds (21,545 kg); and a 6 x 6
model that weighs approximately 49,420
pounds (22,416 kg). The operator can also
select the Gradall, Deere or SAE joystick
Rated bucket force is 24,900 pounds
(111 kN) while the telescoping boom crowd
force is 24,500 pounds (109 kN). Unlike
conventional excavators, the telescoping
boom forces are constant through the en-
tire dig cycle. The versatile boom delivers
a maximum reach of 30 feet, 3 inches (9.22
m) at grade; a dig depth of 20 feet, 3 inches
(6.17 m); and a lift height of 22 feet, 6 inches

Greater lift and stability
The 34.8-ton, 107-hp (143-kW) Volvo
ECR305CL short-swing excavator can
work in conned areas and still perform
well, and sets a new standard in the indus-
try for not only lifting capacity but also
stability. With better weight distribution
and increased swing torque, it also offers
superb swing performance when working
on slopes.
Even when not working close to obstruc-
tions, the short front/rear radius has other
uses highway work being a prime ex-
ample where the machine can safely swing
within a typical single road lane width,
minimizing disruption to trafc ow.
The new rounded cab on Volvos short
swing models is also designed to stay
within the rear swing radius.

Not every mix and application is the same, so your asphalt compactor should be versatile
and easy to set up to match performance to ever-changing conditions. If it isnt easy to use,
how can it be productive?

Asphalt Compactors get the work done on the breakdown pass, when the mat
temperatures are higher and conditions are optimal for compaction. They are comfortable
and simple to operate: high amplitude for aggressive compaction, low amplitude for gentle
massaging. They match high paving speeds with high frequency, and low paving speeds with
low frequency. Simple and reliable, with predictable density every time in minimal passes.
No complexity and constant tweaking, as there is using non-aggressive compaction
technologies; no hoping your density numbers will catch up on the intermediate or final pass.
Caterpillar is the market leader because we offer proven technology that makes turning a
profit easier. Isnt that what technology is supposed to do? To get the real story on asphalt
compaction, visit your Cat Dealer today.

Versatile Cat

Asphalt Compactors use proven technology

that is easy to set up for any mix or application.

duty undercarriage system versus being
built as a skid-steer loader with a bolt-on
undercarriage. The result of this exclusive
engineering is a stronger track loader.
With an operating weight of 5,952
pounds and a width of just under 58 inches,
the MTL312 gives operators the small
size they need outside the operators com-
partment, yet offers operators a spacious
and comfortable cab. A nger tip-control

Hydrostatic 4WD compactor
Bomag has taken innovations from their
single-drum rollers and meshed them with
proven design features from their refuse
compactors to produce a machine that is
well-suited to push, spread, and compact
soil for medium to large-scale dirt projects.
Providing power, gradeability and traction,
the BC462EB features four-wheel hydro-
static drive and a 255-hp, water-cooled,
Deutz diesel engine.
Unlike Bomags full line of single-drum
vibratory rollers, the BC462EB achieves
superior compaction through sheer weight
(51,000 pounds), the wheel design, and the
impact force of the teeth. The BC462EB is
ideal for highways, bridges, dams and other
projects where spreading and compacting
large amounts of soil is required.
It features a sealed frame design to keep
job site materials from entering the frame
or engine compartment while providing
complete protection to the drive train com-
ponents. A scraper bar system keeps the
wheels free of dirt, maintaining the highest
level of compaction performance.

nine-wheel Tru-Pac 915 has a 68-inch
compaction width. All-wheel oscillation
increases kneading action during compac-
tion and eliminates oating over low spots
for consistent compaction.
Frame articulation is rated at +/- 40
degrees, while the tire oscillation is rated
at +/- 10 degrees. Powered by an 80-hp Cat
diesel engine, the Tru-Pac 915 has hydro-
static wheel-motor drive to provide inn-
itely variable control of the roller at speeds
from 0 to 15 mph. Ballastable up to 30,500
pounds, each of the nine wheels delivers

Faster compaction
The Sakai SW652ND double-drum os-
cillating roller oscillates or vibrates on
both drums simultaneously. Each drum is
independently controlled for optimum ex-
ibility. This advanced technology machine
achieves the required compaction faster
on both thin and thick lift asphalt applica-
tions. The vibration mode is a typical Sakai
dual-amplitude, high-frequency 4,020 vpm.
Sakai high frequency permits high ground
speeds that enable the roller to reach density
The more gentle oscillation mode offers
a new drum motion that will neither over-
compact the mat nor fracture the aggregate.
By developing a horizontal, rather than
vertical motion in the oscillatory mode,
the SW652ND can successfully vibrate
two drum configuration options. The
SD116DX smooth drum model, with an
operating weight of 23,930 pounds (10,852
kg), is ideal for compacting granular soils.
The SD116F padfoot model, designed
for compacting cohesive-type materials,
weighs 25,050 pounds (11,360 kg). Both
machines have an 84-inch (2,134 mm)
rolling width.
The SD116DX compactor can be con-
verted from a smooth drum to a padfoot
drum machine by using the patented Volvo
two-piece, clamp-on, padfoot shell kit. The

lower costs per ton. It also allows operators
to efciently monitor crusher operations
(while protecting the crusher from over-
load), easily make adjustments to crusher
settings, and conveniently collect oper-
ational and maintenance data all without
having to rework existing plant controls.

Independent auger system
Volvos PF6160 and PF6170 wheeled
highway-class pavers have been designed
with independent auger and conveyor sys-
tems, automatic conveyor tensioning, and
a patented front-wheel suspension.
The auger system is now independent of
the conveyor system. Each of the two auger
and conveyor drives uses sonic sensors
for more precise handling of material. The
conveyor system has chains that are auto-
matically tensioned for proper performance
and less downtime. The conveyor chain
cover cleans itself, providing easier main-
tenance. Reversible augers and conveyors
are optional equipment. A hopper capacity
of 14.38 t (13.04 mt) gives each paver a
practical production rate of 820 t (744 mt)
per hour.
Each paver is powered by a 205-hp (153-
kW) Cummins Tier 3 engine. The PF6160
and PF6170 pavers have a paving speed
of 297 feet per minute (90.5 metres per
minute) and a traveling speed of 12 miles
Clean-sheet design
Vgeles next-generation asphalt pavers are
quieter, cooler and more productive. The
Vision Series is a completely new clean-
sheet design. There is a 10-foot tracked
Vision 5200-2 and wheeled Vision 5203-2,
and an 8-foot tracked Vision 5100-2 and
wheeled Vision 5103-2. Three drive ver-
sions are available on the Vision 5203-2:
rear-wheel drive, optional two-wheel
front-wheel assist, and a new optional six-
wheel drive.
The slope of the machine and hood have
been designed so the operator can see the
sides, the hopper, and the conveyors in the
back, without having to move around.
The Vision Series has eliminated ow
gates and implemented independent con-
veyor and auger drives. Each conveyor is
driven separately and independently from
the auger.

planer milling machines from BOMAG are
designed to remove damaged or deterior-
ated asphalt surfaces from highways, streets
and parking lots. Both units offer a 79-inch
cutting width to remove a half lane of road
surface in one pass.
The BM 2000/50 features a 469-horse-
power engine that delivers a horsepower-
per-cutting-tooth ratio of 2.8 and maximum
working speed of 112 feet per minute

consistent foaming at varying production
rates without the use of a powered mixing
device. As a result, the AC and water can
be introduced at widely different ow rates,
temperatures, and pressures.
The Ultrafoam GXs patent pending
design provides variable orices for both
AC and water and a means to keep the
two ows in intimate contact so that the
available mixing energy is used efciently.
As a result, the Ultrafoam GX maintains
the perfect ratio of AC and water at all
production rates and creates smaller, more
stable bubbles for even consistent asphalt

crawler crane with a 40- to 200-foot (12.2-
to 61-m) tube boom. The optional angle
boom is 40 to 150 feet (12.2 to 45.7 m).
Both tube and angle attachments use the
same respective extensions as the 138H,
HII, and HYLAB 5. A live mast is standard
for either attachment. Maximum tip height
is 242 feet (62.2 m) with tube boom and jib,
and 204 feet (62.2 m) with angle boom and
jib. The jib is offsettable to 5, 15, and 25
degrees. The top sections come standard
with mounting lugs for the jib. A 5-foot
(1.5-m) auxiliary tip, and universal pin-
on pile-driving lead adaptor are optional.
These features help make this the most
exible crane in its class.
High line-pull, front and rear drums,
and the optional rear-mounted fourth drum,
incorporate the latest Link-Belt wet brake
technology used in other HSL models. The
wet brake is on the output side of the winch
planetary after the reduction.

signed specically for tight working condi-
tions. While Liebherr does not label it as
a rough-terrain crane, the LTC 1055-3.1
has features that make it suitable for rough
conditions. Overall length is just 27.5 feet
(8.38 m), and the width is 8.3 feet (2.54 m).

Virtual pivot boom design
Genie Industries has recently introduced
redesigned versions of its S-80 and S-85
telescopic booms. The signicant changes
include: xed width axles; an exclusive
virtual pivot boom assembly; faster eleva-
tion time; improved software design for
smoother, more comfortable operation;
and intuitive operator and serviceability
features. The fixed width axles on the
redesigned booms give the machines an
eight-foot two-inch total width, both on the
trailer and on the jobsite.
New to the S-80 and S-85 telescopic
booms is the virtual pivot boom design
which Genie Industries introduced in 2003
on the S-60 and S-65 booms. The primary
benet of a virtual pivot boom is its abil-
ity to keep the weight of the boom over
the chassis centre of gravity as it elevates.
To enhance operator efciency, the eleva-
tion time on the S-80 and S85, from fully
stowed to fully elevated, is decreased to
68 seconds.

New digging system
The EZ Di g
System for mini-
excavators is an
i deal di ggi ng
tool for trench-
ing jobs where
soil conditions
are sticky, hard
or filled with
rocks or roots.
The unique EZ
Dig is designed
with multiple
spades, one be-
hind the other, to chisel multiple cuts with
every curl cycle. The number of spades is
determined by the machine size.
The EZ Dig guarantees operators will
dig faster in sticky soil conditions because
the spades always dump cleanly. The EZ
Dig System doubles the amount of material
moved per pass when compared to a trad-
itional bucket, allowing operators to work
quickly and efciently.
The EZ Dig cuts clean trenches as
narrow as four inches, removing only the
necessary material. With this system, an
operator can change the spade width to
match the trench width.

The vibration produced by the Ho-Pac
is an ideal force for compacting granular
materials since vibration generates stress
waves which bring the soils air to the
surface. As a result, the particles of soil
are rearranged and moved closer to each
other, which reduces voids in the soil. Ho-
Pacs compact in densities in excess of 95
percent Proctor.
