Several leading machinery manufacturers have recently released upgrades and new models which are designed to deliver better performance and power. These could be worth considering as a solution for your business.
Caterpillar Rotary Mixer
In late February, Caterpillar announced the availability of its RM400 to replace their RM300 rotary mixer. This new CAT has many new features which improve performance especially in soil stabilisation and full-depth reclamation work. Improvements include better manoeuvrability and operating environment as well as 19% more power. The RM400 has 23,500 kg weight and delivers 2.4 metre cutting width. The C9.3 engine delivers 417 HP while meeting EU Stage 5 standards in emissions. The operating length is 44 cms shorter than the RM300 which contributes to the better manoeuvrability – great for tight sites in commercial and residential work.
The operating environment has been enhanced with a sliding cab for side to side viewing, greater operator efficiency and production increases. Side-mounted cameras add to safety while improving vision. Three different rotor speeds are available and hand wheel steering and joystick controls improve operator control and manoeuvring.
CAT has simplified the service process too with the daily points accessible and grouped.
If the CAT RM400 sounds like a possible solution for your business, head to our equipment finance calculator or loan comparison calculator to work up repayment estimates. We’ve listed the different our selection of loan types along with the current interest rates we are achieving for each finance product. You simply enter your loan amount and term and the system automatically calculates repayment estimates for each loan for your consideration.
Another manufacturer releasing updates is Liebherr. The company has increased the capabilities on both the L550 and the L556 XPower wheel loaders. Updates include structural reinforcement to the lift arms as well improving the capabilities of the engine and overhauling the hydraulics. According to reports, these updates have the objective of enhancing operator experience in particular for applications such as waste disposal.
The company reports working with landfill and recycling customers that face tough operating conditions and have introduced machinery updates to provide improved versatility and performance.
Liebherr-Australia, the Australian arm of the German manufacturer, offers a range of machinery to the local market including tower cranes, crawler cranes, offshore cranes, deep foundation machines amongst others.
