Outriggerpads launches Hinowa options

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 8:24 am

Outriggerpads is expanding its range of spreader plates for powered access and mobile plant equipment with a ‘shoe pad’ for Hinowa Lightlift tracked booms.

The pad fits snugly around the circular foot plate of each outrigger leg. Once fitted, they remain in situ, so do not need to be placed down and picked back up after each job, says the manufacturer. Attaching the pads to the feet in this way also minimises the risk of theft, or loss.

The product is made from heavy duty polyethylene that retains its shape under extreme vertical pressure. For more details visit www.outriggerpads.co.uk

Efficient Atlas Copco generators

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 8:10 am

Atlas Copco has launched the fifth generation of its flagship QAS generators range. The new QAS5 models are designed to give quieter operation, a compact footprint, reduced engine emissions and enhanced fuel economy.

The first five models in the range are new versions of the QAS 80, 100, 120, 150 and 200 machines, each of which has optimised Stage IIIA engines. Larger capacity, EU Stage V compliant models are set to be introduced in the coming years to facilitate the phased adoption of the new regulations from 2019.

Noise is reduced through the incorporation of a variable-speed motor-driven fan to adjust the cooling flow to match the requirements of the engine. Equipped with up to eight sockets, a terminal board and optional power locks, the generators can be powered up within five seconds, says the manufacturer, and they can be configured in parallel in less than a minute.

Jaama drives forward

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 11:00 am

Jaama has introduced new functionality to its Key2 vehicle management system to enables users to utilise the data available following introduction of the vehicle emissions and MPG (miles per gallon) protocol, the worldwide harmonised light vehicles test procedure (WLTP).

Claimed to be more representative of ‘real-world’ driving, WLTP has been described as the world’s toughest emissions standard, the software developer states.

WLTP test results have been applied to all new car and lighter van models since September last year. From September 1, 2018 all cars and lighter vans (Class I up to 1305kg) must be tested under WLTP rules, along with new types of heavier vans (N1 Class II 1305-1760kg and III above 1760kg). From September 1, 2019 the rules apply to all heavier vans.

Jaama has added new functionality to its Key2 suite to manage this information, which takes vehicle data feeds from automotive industry providers, to give a greater insight into vehicle performance for fleet decision-makers.

MD Martin Evans said, “Introduction of the WLTP testing regime is one of the most significant developments to impact on the UK company car and van market since the turn of the century.” For more information, visit www.jaama.com

JCB develops electric mini

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 2:25 pm

JCB has developed its first ever electric digger in response to demand for a zero emissions machine which can work indoors, underground and close to people in urban areas.

The 19C-1 E-Tec has an electric motor and three advanced Lithium-ion battery packs, to deliver a full energy capacity of 15kWh. The 1.9-tonne machine can be charged from a standard 230V supply, and JCB states that it can dig with the same speed and power as its diesel counterpart.

A ‘super-fast’ charging option will also be available for the new model, which is due for launch towards the end of this year, designed to reduce the re-charge time to 2.5 hours.

Speaking at the unveiling at JCB’s World Headquarters in Rocester, Chairman Lord Bamford said, “With urbanisation, machines are operating more closely to people as well as digging underground, indoors, near hospitals and in food production environments. As a result, there is a new zero emissions sector emerging and it’s emerging very quickly. It’s for this reason we have put ourselves at the forefront of alternative power technologies and developed the first ever electric JCB digger.”

EHN will report on the 19C-1 E-Tec in more depth in our April/May issue, along with other new JCB product developments.
