The Toro Company aims to be producing Stone Construction Equipment machines at Stone’s Honeoye facility in New Jersey in the “near term” before switching production to its existing facilities in Nebraska and Minnesota.
The Toro Company has announced that it has acquired light construction product assets of Stone Construction Equipment, the compaction and concreting equipment business which went into bankruptcy earlier this year. The price was not disclosed.
IRN looks at some of the new compaction equipment available, including machines from JCB, Hamm, Paclite, Weber MT and Masterpac. We start, however, with Chris Sleight’s report on the latest tandem rollers from Bomag.
Compaction specialist Hamm will take the wraps off the 311 compactor at the bC India exhibition. The unit was designed in co-operation between its German and Indian engineers and is manufactured at a new factory in Pune.
Singapore-Chinese company Uni-corp is marketing its own Paclite Equipment brand of light compaction and concreting equipment worldwide after many years acting as an OEM supplier to manufacturers in the west.
Wacker Neuson says its new DPU 130 vibratory plate offers the same compacting power as a 7 t roller. A key feature of the remote controlled unit is the use of two ground plates that make it more maneuverable.
