Firefly launches two new Hybrid Generators at the Show.

November 18, 2014

Filed under: Latest News — Louise @ 4:34 pm

Firefly supplies a range of Hybrid Power Generators (HPGs) and will be launching two new hybrid models at the Show. Firefly’s HPGs have become particularly popular on construction sites for contractors looking to reduce carbon emissions.

Firefly's Cygnus Hybrid Power Generator

The two new models offer advanced autonomy, increased power and operating capacity, longer run times as well as new battery technology. In addition, visitors to the stand can view Firefly’s current offering of Cygnus® models, which range from 1.2kVA to 24 kVA.

Andy Mead, Director and Founder of Firefly, commented, “We pride ourselves on having become the ‘go to’ company for hybrid power technology in the rental market. The Executive Hire Show is an ideal platform for us to showcase our two new models, which complement our existing range.”

Hybrid generators provide a host of benefits; providing clean energy storage solutions that integrate a range of power sources to optimise energy efficiency, reducing fuel costs as well as CO2 emissions by as much as 50% (and more in some cases). In fact, since the launch of the Cygnus 24kVA, Firefly has saved 1 million litres of diesel.  They also allow contractors to reduce the runtime of onsite generators by as much as half and see a decrease in particulate (PM10), carbon and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions of up to 50%. This also helps to reduce the chance of mechanical breakdown and smoking from running at low load.

MUV Electric Wheelbarrow Wheels Away Inefficiency!

November 17, 2014

Filed under: Latest News — Louise @ 11:34 am

Nu-Star will be displaying the new MUV Electric Wheelbarrow on stand X46 at The Executive Hire Show, taking place on the 11th and 12th February 2015 at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.

The new MUV Electric Wheelbarrow, or mini-dumper, from Nu-Star Material Handling not only allows operators to transport heavy loads with ease, it eliminates the unnecessary ergonomic challenges and production halts associated with traditional wheelbarrow solutions. Furthermore, the savings made in reduced labour and enhanced efficiency ensure rapid return on investment in sectors that include construction, industrial, agriculture, horticulture, landscaping and gardening.

Increase efficiency with the new Wheelbarrow from Nu Star

Demanding industries such as construction call for increased profitability and efficiency, while at the same time protecting workers from over-exertion. The MUV Electric Wheelbarrow eliminates the pushing and pulling required when using a conventional manual wheelbarrow and, since it has a push-button operated electric dump (capable of tipping loads up to 350kg), it also removes the lifting effort required when emptying/dumping a wheelbarrow.

With a choice of either 800W or 1,200W DC electric drive motors, the MUV Electric Wheelbarrow is virtually noise free in its operation, making it ideal for internal use and in areas where noise-pollution is a concern for local residents.

Since there are no handle-bar vibrations to cause Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) or ‘dead finger’ the Electric Wheelbarrow may be used without having to assess this potential risk to the operator.

The MUV Electric Wheelbarrow is available with both moulded industrial plastic and galvanized steel tubs, which may be interchanged by removing locking detent pins on the sub-frame. Other attachments, such as a flat-bed for transporting bricks, tiles and blocks are also available.

Power comes from two 12V, 90AHr batteries, each is sealed-for-life and maintenance free. The waterproof battery charger is fitted on-board and may be connected to either a 220V or 110V power supply. The batteries and battery charger are matched to enable opportunity charging, at any point in the charging cycle, thereby considerably extending run-time. A coloured, LED battery-charge indicator gauge on the control panel clearly shows the battery state.

Featuring a highly manoeuvrable design, the MUV Electric Wheelbarrow is operated using an infinitely variable, twist-grip throttle on the right handle in conjunction with a forwards/backwards direction switch on the control panel. Maximum speed is up to 4.6km/h for the 800W version and up to 6km/h for 1,200W version. An additional ‘tortoise’ mode switch on the control panel reduces maximum speed by 50% to enable inch-perfect positioning when activating the electric-tip and to help achieve a graduated release of the wheelbarrow contents.

The front drive wheels and rear swivelling castor are fitted with industrial foam-filled tyres, making them puncture-proof and impervious to the nails/screws and sharp objects often found on littering construction sites. In addition to regenerative braking provided by the 125Amp motor controller, there is a 6Nm electromagnetic brake for holding the wheelbarrow when on slopes and when in transit between locations.

No driving licence is required to use the MUV, which may be loaded quickly into a van or onto a trailer using three scaffold planks, a tail-lift or ramp.

The MUV Electric Wheelbarrow is now available for both sale and hire, direct from the OEM.

Information reached us last week that The Construction Index is passing itself off as the official magazine of the Executive Hire Show to solicit advertising.

This is completely unacceptable and is in breach of our Terms & Conditions, namely Clause 13, which relates to an exhibitor that is or maybe engaged in activities which are deemed to be contrary to the best interests of the Exhibition.

As a result, we have terminated The Construction Index’s contract with immediate effect.

Whilst we are not under liability to refund charges paid, we have done so in full.

To avoid any further confusion for exhibitors, we would like to make it clear that Executive Hire News is, and always will be, the official magazine of Executive Hire Show.

The new range of Bobcat 1-2 tonne excavator models comprises the E17, E19 and E20 compact excavators.  The new models are towable on trailers for up to 2000 kg, with transportability further enhanced by new tie-down points.  An expandable undercarriage, automatic slew brake and advanced diagnostics and instrumentation are just some of the many standard features included on all three excavators.

Optimum Performance and Operator Comfort

These new high performance excavators provide an unmatched combination of class-leading breakout forces, working range, smoothness, hydraulic output and fast cycle times.  Like all Bobcat compact equipment, the new E17 to E20 excavators are built around the operator, providing the best possible operator comfort and safety.

The unique hydraulic systems on the new E17, E19 and E20 models make the best possible use of the engine power on the excavators.  Fast cycle times, combined with smooth control of the class-leading breakout forces provide maximum productivity.  Boom and arm cylinder cushioning, another unique feature in this class of excavator also increases overall smoothness.

With enhanced stability and lifting capacity, combined with best-in-class proportional auxiliary flow, the new E17, E19 and E20 models offer the highest versatility in operating a wide range of attachments.

Doosan Tough Top Compressors  

As well as offering outstanding durability, the canopy on Doosan Tough Top portable compressors is also non-corrodible and can be supplied in customer colours.  The Yanmar-powered 7/31E+ model supplies 3.0 m3/min of compressed air at 7 bar output pressure.  Like all Tough Top models, the 7/31E+ compressor has an intuitive, simple key-start sequence, ideal for plant and tool hire companies.  Serviceability is also excellent, with easy access to all maintenance points.

Doosan Portable Power - Tough Top’ portable compressor

The Tough Top 7/26E+, 7/31E+ and 7/41E+ models are part of a complete line of portable compressors from Doosan Portable Power comprising 24 different models, with free air deliveries between 2 and 45 m³/min and operating pressures between 7 and 25 bar.

Doosan Portable Power also offers a comprehensive range of portable generators and lighting products for the plant and tool hire industry.  Completing the line-up are construction tools such as air-powered chipping hammers, pickhammers, jackhammers and paving breakers for work in demolition, utilities, quarrying and industrial markets.

The stand display at EHS 2015 will also feature the Montabert range, offering tools for use on machines as diverse as compact loaders and 90 tonne excavators, with a comprehensive selection from hydraulic breakers to crusher buckets, covering every application in demolition and recycling from primary and secondary demolition to handling, sorting and recycling.

The SC8 model being shown is one of nine models in the Montabert Silver Clip hydraulic breaker range running from the 65 kg SC-6 model to the 500 kg SC-50 breaker for carriers ranging from 700 kg to 14 tonne.

November 12, 2014

Filed under: Latest News — Louise @ 7:35 am

Avant Tecno (UK) will be showing examples from its selection of compact tool carriers and attachments including the very latest 760i model which is now the company’s largest and most powerful machine in a range of twelve.

The New Avant 760i at the EHS next year... See it first.

It is still a compact unit, measuring just 3080 mm in length and 1400 mm in width, and is powered by a new Kohler KDI engine developing 42 kW (57 hp) @  2200 rpm meeting the latest Tier 4 Final emission regulations. Compared with Avant’s previous range topping 750, the new model offers 20% more engine power, 40% more torque and 20% lower fuel consumption.

The ultra-low emission figure has been achieved with a new 16 valve power unit featuring a high pressure, common rail fuel injection system plus turbocharger, intercooler, cooled exhaust gas recirculation and a diesel oxidation catalyst. This highly efficient and quiet engine is also equipped with CAN bus technology and an electronic control unit.

In addition, Avant will be promoting AVANTHIRE on its stand with recently appointed national sales manager John Spencer in attendance to discuss  the many advantages available to hire partners.

Air Seal Products back at the EHS.

Filed under: Latest News — Louise @ 1:18 pm

Air-Seal Products tyre sealants can prevent up to 95% of all punctures up to 1¼ inches (30 mm) and stop all rim, bead and other slow air leaks. They are widely used in over the road equipment and all items of plant. The company says it can help hire companies increase customer loyalty and increase tyre life at a very low cost. It also says that operational efficiency is improved by reducing costly downtime for idle machines and labour. A single treatment can cost less than the full cost of one tyre repair and lasts the legal life of the tyre.

Air-Seal Products tyre sealants play a major part in tyre management and have been well proven over the past thirteen years. And there is no doubt a correctly maintained tyre is made safer with its quality tyre sealant installed.

Air-Seal - Not just for punctures any more!

Air Seal said that all of its products work using mechanical action and do not rely on glues or other harmful additives to function which means the casing is fully re-treadable at the end of its first life.

Air-Seal’s Alex Burnand said, “Our sealants are now fully proven to be an integral part of all good tyre management programmes by providing a major contribution to tyre longevity and increased profitability.  Operational efficiency is improved by reducing costly downtime for idle machines and labour.  A single treatment can cost less than the full cost of one tyre repair and lasts the legal life of the tyre.  Our sealants are backed by first class technical service based on extensive on-site experience.”

Come and meet the Air-Seal team on Stand E05 at the EHS in the main hall to discuss how they can help you to achieve substantial savings and improved profitability whilst banging nails and spikes into a tyre!
