BrandFX composite utility & service bodies fit chassis with a cab to axle of 39” to 84”. These composite bodies offer a powerful return on investment with 40% weight savings over an equivalent steel body. In a recent study comparing a Ford F-350 with a 1000-pound composite body with a Ford 350 and a 1500-pound steel body, the heavier body was found to have an increased emissions penalty of 52%, used 2.6% more fuel, and required more frequent maintenance of tires, brakes, and shocks. Many fleets re-use composite bodies, transferring them over two or three chassis life cycles, while averaging resale values of 35 to 50% more than steel. That is a powerful return on investment. Standard features include all stainless steel hardware, rust free composite construction, air-tight/water-tight ventilated compartments, tough .25 ml. gel coat exterior, and PVC high-density foam core.

Versatile, practical, affordable BrandFX Toppers and Inserts are designed for easy removal and are available for all popular Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, and GMC pickup models in both 6.5’ and 8’ beds. Composite offers equivalent strength and durability while weighing considerably less than steel or aluminum, which means less fuel consumed in every mile of operation, or the ability to haul more tools and equipment. Composite construction also provides worry-free, rust-free performance and fiberglass has the flexibility to absorb impacts that routinely dent metal. What’s more, BrandFX Toppers and Inserts won’t warp or weaken from fatigue, and thanks to their tough .25 ml. gel coat, don’t need repainting. BrandFX Toppers and Inserts offer shelving, drawer, cabinet, and lighting options to make your truck a more productive mobile storage space and workplace.

418 Compact Excavator Works Where Space is Limited

Click here to enlarge image

Bobcat introduces the 418 compact excavator, which replaces the model 316. The Bobcat 418 excavator has an operating weight of 2,593 lbs and a dig depth of 6’. The 418 excavator was developed with zero tail swing (ZTS) with tracks extended.

Pilot-operated joysticks control the 418 excavator. With these joysticks, the operator has consistent, smooth and fluid control of the machine. The operator may also choose between ISO and standard pattern joystick operation through a control pattern selector valve.

Bobcat has given operators more room by creating an exclusive two-position joystick console. The undercarriage of the excavator retracts to less than 28”. The Tip-Over Protective Structure (TOPS) folds down so that the excavator can travel through a standard-size doorway and work in interior jobsites.

Two travel speeds are available to operators with a range of 1.3 to 2.1 miles per hour. The hydraulic cylinder is mounted on top of the boom to prevent the cylinder from coming into contact with the trench, bucket or nearby obstacles. The hoses on the 418 excavator have been routed through the inside of the work group to protect them from damage.

Bobcat Company introduces the S70, the smallest model in the company’s line of skid-steer loaders. The Bobcat S70 replaces the model 463 and is 71.4”H, 35.4”W and 75.5”L without an attachment.

The S70 has a rated operating capacity of 700 lbs and is powered by a 23.5-hp diesel engine that powers a fully hydrostatic, four-wheel drive system with a travel speed of 6.1 mph. With an operating weight of 2,845 lbs, the S70 is also easy to transport.

The S70 incorporates new features, including an updated engine mount, hydrostatic pump centering and belt drive system. The new engine mount reduces vibration in the machine for greater operator comfort. The new hydrostatic pump centering is based on a similar setup in Bobcat mini track loaders and uses a tension spring instead of a torsion spring. A micro, serpentine-style V belt is used in the new belt tensioner system.

The indicator lights for the Bobcat Interlock Control System (BICS) have been moved from the rear of the cab to the right-hand instrument panel. The S70 includes the Bob-Tach attachment system and a 14-pin attachment control kit.

The S70 has a transversely mounted engine and a tip-up cab for easier access when the machine needs to be serviced. The center-mounted, maintenance-free chaincase allows the S70 to travel through deep mud and other areas more easily because of its keel-shaped belly pan.

Doosan Infracore Portable Power offers a new hydraulic-drive, truck-mounted air compressor module. The Ingersoll Rand HP60CMH is a rotary-screw air compressor unit that delivers free air up to 60-cfm at a rated operating pressure of 150 lbs psi.

Powered by the hydraulic system on the truck, the HP60CMH requires only 18.1 gallons per minute of hydraulic flow at 2,295 psi hydraulic pressure to maintain full load. The air compressor is rugged, durable and designed for 100% continuous-duty operation.

Maintenance is made easy with conveniently located service panels to let operators reach the most important components of the system. A remote compressor oil drain, a no-spill, spin-on separator element and an easily accessible oil filter simplify changing the compressor oil. The HP60CMH provides an air / oil separation system integrally designed into it.

This system has a built-in hydraulic oil cooler. There is a hydraulic pressure relief valve incorporated into the unit to prevent system damage should a spike in hydraulic pressure occur. The hydraulic motor is equipped with an electronic solenoid valve. Other equipment can be operated off of the same hydraulic circuit without running the air compressor.
