Vogele Pavers Hard at Work

In July, 2016 Vogele Pavers seen in this video are part of an enormous one-day road building project on Tverskaya Street in Russia.

This huge undertaking included over 300 units including Vogele Pavers and various other support equipment including rollers and haulers. The project required over 8,000 tons of asphalt and resulted in over 32,000 square meters of product!

The street was paved in one-day as a single piece of asphalt which should result in improved performance over time.

Vogele pavers are world-renowned for their performance and reliability, whether here in the United States or half-way across the world, in Russia. Below is a time lapse of the road being constructed. Brandeis Machinery is proud to be an authorized distributor of Vogele products.

Komatsu Adds 2 New Tier 4 Off-Road Haulers

Increased horsepower, reduced fuel consumption, improved access, and all new operator environment

HD465-8 and HD605-8

Rolling Meadows, Ill., November 3, 2016 – Komatsu America Corp., a leading global heavy equipment manufacturer, today introduced the new HD465-8 and HD605-8 off-highway trucks.  Equipped with EPA Tier 4 Final certified engines, these latest additions to the rigid frame truck family combine increased horsepower and the Komatsu Traction Control System (KTCS) to provide improved productivity. These models have payload capacities of 61 U.S. (short)/55 metric tons and 69.4 U.S. (short)/63 metric tons, respectively. They replace the HD465-7 and HD605-7 models.

The new trucks feature a Komatsu SAA6D170E-7 engine that has increased to 724 HP (540 kW) and reduced fuel consumption for the HD465-8 by up to seven percent, and the HD605-8 by up to 12%, compared to their predecessors.  Machine access is improved with sloped stairs and handrails in front, to replace the previous ladder configuration.

For HD465-8 and HD605-8 machines, Komatsu Traction Control System (KTCS) is now standard. KTCS automatically applies independent brake assemblies to achieve optimum traction in varying ground conditions.  Because the system operates without the need for differential lock-up, steering performance is not compromised.

Other new standard features for both truck models include a seven inch, LCD color monitor, dedicated rearview monitor, fast-fill fuel system, an engine compartment light, and a premium heated and ventilated operator’s seat with air suspension.

“With an increase in horsepower and improved fuel economy, the HD465-8 and HD605-8 are designed to maximize production efficiency,” said Rob McMahon, product marketing manager for Komatsu America. “With enhancements to the cab layout and maintenance access, combined with new technology features, these trucks have something everyone will like,” McMahon said.
