Bell Equipment new ADTs
Bell Equipment is now launching new ADTs including the B30E

The final preparations for bauma 2013 are now underway and ABE takes a look at some of the new equipment that will be launched at the show.

With over 3,250 exhibitors and in excess of 420,000 visitors expected, Bauma 2013 will reconfirm its position as the largest trade fair in the world.

Work on placing the new equipment on the 555,000m² showground is now reaching the final stages. But the trend for these new launches isn’t always bigger is better, as there is a growing move towards improving efficiency and productivity. This focus is not only aimed at lowering ownership costs but is also helping the environmental credentials of the newest equipment.

Many manufacturers will also be displaying their solutions to meet the latest emissions regulations.

Drilling, blasting and breaking

The Sandvik DC125R, a new member of the proven Sandvik DC family of compact, rubber-tyred top hammer drill rigs, is a remote-controlled, hydraulic, self-propelled mini-sized unit for drilling 22–45mm holes, and replaces the former Sandvik DC122R (one of the series of rigs launched under the product name Tamrock Commando).

Rammer, the Sandvik Construction-owned range of hydraulic hammers, marks the latest stage in the development of the Rammer-branded products with four new models including the 5011 hammer at the heavier end of the large range product line-up, and three additions to the small range, the Rammer 255, 355 and 455, which plugs a gap in the Rammer line-up, and are suitable for carriers in the 1.2-5.2tonnes operating weight class.

MOBA continues to develop its novel MDS-2000 drilling system, a proven package used for blast hole drilling in many operations; it can now record the orientation of the machine. Elsewhere Atlas Copco launches its new top hammer surface drill rig, the FlexiROC T45, along with its new rock drill COP 3060.

Loading and hauling

Bell Equipment, working on its biggest ever truck which will offer a capacity of 55tonnes, is now launching the new B25E and B30E ADTs to its range. Marc Schürmann, managing director of Bell Equipment Europe said, “There are several improvements over the D series. The A-frame design from the larger trucks is now being used in the smaller trucks.”
