New Holland focusses on demolition
By Lindsay Gale31 March 2009
New Holland's new machines will focus on the demolition and waste industries. In the wheeled loader segment is a new long reach version of the W190B, which can be adapted to waste handling with options like solid tyres and additional protection for axles, cylinders, hoses and so on.
In the demolition sector the company is adding a demolition version of the E245B Multifunction excavator. Although at 45 tonnes it is a relatively large base carrier, New Holland has put the emphasis on medium reach and flexibility with a four-piece boom and a maximum tool weight of 1.5 tonnes. New Holland will be displaying two other models specially designed for the demolition role - the E385B Demolition and the all-new E215B Demolition package for ground level operation. The latter is a 21 tonne excavator equipped with a protection package that will allow contractors to have a unit that can be safely used for demolition applications and also in the standard earthmoving role.
