New Holland Construction show new equipment at Samoter 2011
Tier IV-compliant equipment and new ranges of wheel loaders and crawler excavators to be launched at Italian earthmoving and building machinery exhibition
New Holland Construction will present their Tier IV solutions and exhibit the first models with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology at the Samoter show, which will be held in Verona, Italy, from 2-6 March. The company will also launch their brand new ranges of wheel loaders and crawler excavators, featuring the new Tier IV technology, and delivering increased productivity and fuel economy. The brand will also introduce new features to their backhoe loaders, and showcase their dedicated product offering for the quarry, road building, pipelines/sewage/cabling and residential industries.
New Tier IV models
The new E305C crawler excavator and the two wheel loader models – the W170C and W190C – all feature New Holland’s SCR technology to achieve compliance with Tier IV interim emissions regulations. This is an after-treatment system, which breaks down the NOx into nitrogen and water, which occur naturally in the atmosphere, through a chemical reaction with AdBlue, a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). The DEF is available through all New Holland dealerships, and the tank only needs to be refilled every 4th or 5th fuel tank refill. With New Holland’s SCR solution, the combustion process is optimized for maximum efficiency, so less fuel is consumed and more power is generated.
The new E305C crawler excavator features a new, high-efficiency hydraulic system that ensures 100% pump utilization in all applications and keeps friction losses and pressure drops to a minimum. Together with the new engines and SCR technology, this results in a 10% increase in productivity in terms of cubic metres per hour and a 10% reduction in fuel consumption in ECO mode compared to the equivalent B-series model. The new EVO cab offers a range of comfort and safety features: low noise and vibration levels, new joystick controls, all-round visibility and rear-view camera, and ROPS/FOPS compliance. The heavy-duty design, with improved undercarriage, and easy serviceability result in enhanced reliability. The E305C is available in a variety of configurations, with guards and protections for applications such as quarry or demolition.
The new W170C and W190C wheel loaders features high-pressure common rail engines that deliver best in class power and torque. The operator can select one of four pre-set power modes according to the job at hand, maximizing engine efficiency and productivity. The new five-speed lock-up transmission and open differential axles enhance fuel economy. The SCR system contributes to these models’ exceptional fuel efficiency, achieving 9-17% better fuel economy than the equivalent Series B models. The new hydraulic system delivers high productivity and fast cycles. The spacious cab offers excellent access and all-round visibility, enhancing safety on the jobsite and operator comfort. The adjustable seat, ergonomic control layout and low noise ensure full comfort. The joystick steering allows the operator to switch from joystick to steering wheel seamlessly for high production applications, further enhancing controllability and productivity.
The B115B and B110BTC backhoe loaders introduce new features that significantly increase fuel efficiency, operator comfort, productivity and durability. The new variable displacement pump only delivers the necessary oil flow when it is needed, resulting in fuel savings of up to 10%. The pump also reduces engine stalling to a minimum, increasing productivity. The self-levelling of the B110B tool carrier’s bucket when lifting and lowering further enhances productivity, as do the 20in front tyres, which ensure excellent grip and stability. Operator comfort is enhanced by an automatically managed hydraulic speed control switch, power brake and soft-touch steering wheel. The new transmission, front axle and heavy-duty rear axle, together with the PowerShuttle’s blocker-style synchronisers that prevent gear clash when shifting, all contribute to higher reliability and durability.
