Volvo Compact Track Loader
The MCT110C compact track loader is
the latest addition to Volvo's C-Series
line of compact loaders, filling a
gap between the MCT85C and the
MCT125C. The MCT110C has a rated
operating capacity of 2,250 pounds, a
single loader tower arm design, and a
Tier 4 Final four-cylinder engine (74
hp/55 kW) with an advanced combustion system that cuts emissions while
increasing fuel economy. Due to the cooled-exhaust gas recirculation (EGR),
common rail system, and fixed-geometry turbocharger, a diesel particulate
filter isn't required in the engine. The automatic idling system returns the
machine to idle if controls aren't operated for 5 seconds. This reduces fuel
consumption and noise. Once the operator resumes controls, the engine
quickly reverts to the preselected speed.

Wirtgen HT22 Quick-Change Toolholder System
The HT22 Quick Change Toolholder
System for Wirtgen cold-milling
machines minimizes downtime and
increases the service life of the drum.
Service intervals for the new toolholder
have been doubled to 500 hours and
service can occur at the job site. The
HT22 has enlarged contact areas
between the upper and lower parts,
which transfer the cutting force to the lower part of toolholder, increasing
the useful life of the milling drum. The maximum longitudinal wear of
the upper part of the toolholder has been doubled in relation to that of the
conventional version, and the newly designed system has a larger shank
cross-section and optimized shank geometry to increase the strength of the
shank and provide greater resistance to deformation. Older Wirtgen machines
may be retrofitted for use with the new toolholder system.

ASTEC Voyager 120 Plant
The new Voyager 120 MTPH
plant features a compact, portable
design. Unique for a plant in this
class, it can run up to 30 percent
recycled asphalt pavement (RAP).
It is built around a counter-flow
drum and is designed for greater
uniformity of the aggregate veil
during the drying process, which
results in improved heat transfer and fuel efficiency. To enhance portability,
a hydraulically driven swing out drag and batcher can be set up in just 10
minutes. Other features include a reverse-pulse baghouse, a controls cap
with fully automated PLC controls, gravity take-up with direct drive, air ride
suspension, and up to five cold feed bins and two RAP bins.
