Bobcat's new soil conditioner and disc harrow Category 1 three-point hitch implements.

The type 567 Butterfly Valve now includes sizes 14 to 16 inches in diameter. The new size range features a unique double eccentric off-center design and excellent chemical compatibility. Suitable applications include landfills where large size valves are required for drainage of underground leachate. Other uses include industrial water treatment, potable water treatment, and waste water systems in such industries as chemical, chemical distribution, electroplating and power plants. The 567 Valve’s unique double eccentric design features an off-center shaft that allows the disc to completely disengage from the disc seal, even when partially open. The new large size valve features industry-standard ISO flange mount for easy electric or pneumatic actuation with most actuators. Other features include bi-directional capability, pressure rating of 90 psi at 70 degree F, and hand wheel.

Volvo is now fitting as standard its remote monitoring (telematics) system on all larger machines along with a no charge 36 month CareTrack service subscription. The CareTrack telematics system is used to manage a machine’s productivity and maximize its availability for work. Using GPRS (mobile network) or satellite technology to send information, data is available securely and instantaneously to any remote online connection. Through fault reporting and activity warnings and by facilitating remote diagnosis, the goal is that machine problems will be identified sooner and resolved faster. Machine operation and deployment can be optimized via functions that monitor fuel consumption, location, hours of operation, speed and approaching service intervals. 828.650.2043, www.volvoce.com
