New Cat 140 GC offers low owning and operating costs

skill levels quickly achieve high production with the 140 GC, and options that include adjustable seats and efficient heating/ cooling systems guarantee comfort. With 45 years of refinement, the 140 GC’s conventional steering wheel and le- ver controls are familiar to operators and ensure positive control. The control con- sole adjusts to the operator’s preference, and the powerful heating and cooling system option dehumidifies and pressur- izes the cab, while circulating fresh air to seal out dust and keep windows clear. Seat upgrades include mechanical or air suspension; static seat is standard. The 140 GC’s standard no-spin differen- tial activates with no operator input to in- crease traction in poor ground conditions and to protect drive-train components from damage. The optional Digital Blade Slope Meter takes the guesswork out of slope control and keeps the job site safer by eliminating manual grade checks. Cat Detect with Vision System (optional) uses a rearview camera to show a wide view behind the machine. b

The new Cat ® 140 GC motor grader is designed to combine high performance with low owning and operating costs. The 140 GC’s powerful Cat C7.1 engine, 6F/3R automatic power-shift transmission (which eliminates the inching pedal), and precisely

designed hydraulic system ensure balanced performance in all operating situations. An ECO operating mode and de- mand-fan reduce fuel consumption, and extended maintenance intervals further reduce operating costs. Operators of all

New range of skid steer loaders from Wacker Neuson Wacker Neuson has developed two new wheeled skid steer loaders from the ground up, said to offer the power and torque

needed to lift more, push more, work more and manoeuvre through challenging jobsite obstacles. Both machines have the comfort and convenience owners and operators expect and the durability they demand. With a 1-year/1 000-hour bumper-to- bumper warranty, as well as a transfer- able engine warranty of four years/4 000 hours, the new models are ideal for inventory management and resale. The two new wheeled skid steers are built for performance, versatility and con- venience. Class-leading hinge pin height on the vertical lift loader provides maxi- mum loading and unloading capabilities. An engine torque of 308 Nm pro- vides the power needed for improved ground-engaging performance in all kinds of terrain. The Kohler diesel engine features a zero maintenance and regen- eration-free exhaust emission treatment system, eliminating the impact of extreme heat as well as the need for filters. With a fuel tank capacity of 113 ℓ , the operator is able to spend more time in the cab and less time refuelling. “Versatility comes standard with every Wacker Neuson Loader. The universal skid steer attachment plate enables attach-
