The All In One Machine

The All In-One Machine

Thanks To Their Versatility Backhoe Loaders Are Among The Most Widely Used Machines On Middle East Jobsites And Manufacturers Are Bringing New Features And Models To The Market. Undoubtedly Among The Most Common Pieces Of Equipment On Any Jobsite In The Middle East And The Wider Region Backhoe Loaders Are Designed To Be Able To Do Almost Everything. On Top Of That They Can Easily Traverse A Large Site. As A Country Develops The Size Of Its Construction Machinery Typically Shrinks – One Reason Mini Excavators Are So Popular In Europe – But In The Gcc Large And Spread Out Jobsites Make The Backhoe A Perfect Machine For A Wide Variety Of Jobs. “We Have A Saying That The Backhoe Loader Is A Machine That Can Do It All. It Digs Loads Grades Cleans Dozes And Lifts” Explains Ahmed Shouman Gm Of Jcb Middle East. With The Addition Of Various Attachments Such As Street Sweepers Soil Compactors Millers And Breakers The Machine Becomes Even More Versatile He Adds. The Most Popular Attachments Are The Breakers And 6 In 1 Hydraulic Buckets While An Additional Option Is To Use The Machine To Power Hand Held Tools Such As Power Washers Or Jigsaws Rather Than Have To Use A Compressor. There’s No Doubt That Jcb Is The Best Recognised Bhl Brand – Globally Its Market Share Is Around 55 60% Says Shouman. The 3 Cx And 4 Cx Are Its Bestsellers In The Gcc. When Designing And Manufacturing Its Backhoe Loaders The Goal Was To Deliver Leading Performance And The Lowest Cost Of Ownership He Explains. Key Specifications And Options Include Auxiliary Third Pump Or Variable Displacement Pumps Fixed Or Extending Dippers Manual Or Seat Mounted Controls Auto Manual Shift Or Power Shift And Two Wheel Or Four Wheel Drive. “Every Option Offered Has Its Value To The Customer And Each Of These Options Brings A Better Return On Investment From The Machine. When We Design The Machines We Have In Mind The Customer And His Return On Investment” He Says. Strong After Sales Support Is Also A Core Part Of The Offering. Shouman Believes That Every Second Machine Is Sold On The Basis Of The After Market Offering. “This Is Displayed By The Quality And The Size Of The Dealer Network We Have In The Gcc And The Middle East. We Are Represented In Every Country By A Well Established Local Partner Who Shares Our Values.” Performance And Durability Can Help Improve Residual Values On Its Backhoes Says Caterpillar. Jcb’s Live Link Has Been Fitted As Standard Since 2012 (And Can Be Retrofitted On Older Machines) And The Telematics Tool Was Additionally Handy While There Were Restrictions On Movement Due To The Pandemic For Machines On Critical Sites That Remained Operational. Overall The Telematics System Allows Jcb To Offer A Higher Level Of After Sales Support To Customers Through The Dealer Network With Technicians Monitoring Machines And Providing Instant Feedback To Customers Via The Telematics Platform If There Are Any Issues. “What We Excel In Is The Quick Response And The Proactive Approach With Our Existing Customers” Says Shouman. Jcb Has Also Introduced A Mobile App That Operators Can Use To Complete Their Daily Checks And Submit Daily Reports To Supervisors And Fleet Managers. “The Aim Is To Reduce The Amount Of Administrative Paperwork Required And Speed Up The Process In Case There Is A Quick Response Required To Prevent Machine Failures.” In The Coming Months Jcb Is Looking To Update The Standard Controls Offered On Its Middle East Backhoe Loaders A Measure That Shouman Believes Will Improve Operator Productivity And Efficiency On Both The Loader And The Backhoe. While Business Was Down Sharply In March And April And Uncertainty And Project Delays Mean Customers Are Cautious About Buying New Machines There Has Been A Slight Recovery In Demand For Machines Over The Past Two Months He Adds. Efficiency Focus Caterpillar’s Two Most Popular Backhoe Loaders In The Gcc Are The Newly Introduced 428 And 426 F2 Models Says Mamoun Mutair Building Construction – Product Manager At Mohamed Abdulrahman Al Bahar. The Machines Feature A New Hydraulic Quick Coupler To Make It Easier To Change Work Tools. “The New Powered Coupler Engages Tools Hydraulically So You Can Switch Tools From The Comfort And Safety Of The Seat” Explains Mutair. Drive Control Allows The Operator To Switch Between Two Wheel Drive (2 Wd) And All Wheel Drive (Awd) Using The Three Position Drive Selector. A Third Mode 2 Wd With Allwheel Braking Activates Awd When Braking And Returns To 2 Wd When The Brake Pedal Is Released Ensuring Positive Braking Effort In Hazardous Driving Conditions And Reducing Tire Wear. A Lock Up Torque Converter Provides A 16% Increase In Fuel Efficiency And 11% Higher Average Speed Making It An Invaluable Addition For Those Travelling Between Sites. Other Key Product Features Include A Dry Type Axial Air Cleaner With An Integral Pre Cleaner And Automatic Integrated Dust Ejection System To Extend The Life Of The Air Filter When Working In Dusty Conditions Reducing Service Time And Costs And A Large 160 Litre Fuel Tank With A Composite Material That Prevents Rust From Forming In The Tank Protecting Fuel Injection Components. Additionally The 428 Is Protected By An Undercoat Of Electro Deposited (E Coat) Primer Sealing Each Metallic Component From Damage And Corrosion For Optimum Resale Value. Product Link Comes As Standard On The Caterpillar Backhoes With Features Such As Service Hours And Location To Allow The Owner To Access Machine Data To Increase Productivity While Reducing Costs. “Product Link Along With Vision Link Makes Equipment Management Possible. Operators Can View Fleet Information Online With Vision Link And Use It To Make Informed Decisions That Boost Productivity Lower Costs Simplify Maintenance And Improve Safety On Your Jobsite” Says Mutair. Customer Driven Best Known For Its Skid Steer And Compact Track Loaders Bobcat Launched A Range Of Backhoe Loaders Four Years Ago After Numerous Customer Requests Says Gaby Rhayem Regional Director Middle East And Africa For Doosan Bobcat Emea. The Bh Ls Are All Powered By A Highly Efficient Diesel Engine With 74.5k W (100 Hp) Power Output At 2200 Rpm And Maximum Torque Of 408 Nm At 1350 Rpm. “[The Engine] Provides More Than Enough Muscle For The Most Demanding Applications While Delivering Low Operating Costs Due To Low Fuel And Oil Consumption” Notes Rhayem. Bobcat Launched A Range Of Backhoe Loaders Four Years Ago Following Customer Requests. The Firm Is Currently Streamlining The Range From Four Models To Two And Coming Up With A New Model In The Near Future Says Rhayem “Offering Several Machine Options To Meet All Our Customers’ Needs”. It Is Also Working Hard To Increase Commonality Between The Bh Ls And Other Products By Ensuring They Share The Same Bobcat Dna And Developing A Shared Parts Platform For Bobcat Customers That Will Cover All Products And Enhance After Market Support. “This Will Bring A Number Of New Or Significantly Upgraded Products In The Future That Will Help To Strengthen Our Position Not Only In Backhoe Loaders But Across All Markets.” Overall The Bobcat Loaders Are Versatile And Powerful; Combined With A Wide Range Of Bobcat Optional Equipment They Can Be Readily Configured To Carry Out A Wide Range Of Applications With Ease Such As Digging Trenching Breaking And Material Handling Says Rhayem. “Similarly For Loader Applications They Offer Premium Performance With Powerful Breakout Forces Strong Full Lift Capacities And Enhanced Load Over Height And Reach To Meet The Most Demanding Material Handling Jobs. There Is A Choice Of General Purpose Or 6 In 1 Buckets Or Other Optional Equipment To Enhance Both Versatility And Productivity.”

Case Launches World’s First Fully Electric Backhoe Loader Concept To The North American Market

At Conexpo Case Construction Equipment Launched The Construction Industry’s First Fully Electric Backhoe Loader. The 580 Ev (Electric Vehicle) Concept Dubbed Project Zeus Offers The Same Power And Performance As A Diesel Powered Case Backhoe Loader But With Zero Emissions And Considerably Reduced Operating Costs. Two Machines Have Already Been Sold To Us Based Utilities Companies With The Concept Planned To Remain Exclusive To The North American Market. “Since Designing The First Fully Factory Integrated Backhoe Loader In 1957 Case Has Remained At The Pinnacle Of Backhoe Innovation” Said Egidio Galano Compact Line Product Manager Case Construction Equipment Europe. “The 580 Ev Both Continues This Evolution And Represents A Significant Step Forward For Case’s Wider Commitment To A More Sustainable Future For Construction Equipment. By Producing This Concept Machine We Are Bringing The Viability Of Electrified Large Compact Equipment Ever Closer To The North American Market.” The 580 Ev Is Powered By A 480 Volt 90 Kilowatt Hour Lithium Ion Battery Pack. This Can Be Charged Through Any 220 Voltthree Phase Connection To Give Around Eight Hours Of Run Time Depending On The Application. As This Battery Powers The Drivetrain And Hydraulic Motors Separately Breakout Force Is The Same As A Diesel Powered Machine And Overall Performance Is Improved During Simultaneous Loader And Drivetrain Operation. While Also Drastically Cutting A Business’ Carbon Footprint It Is Estimated That That 580 Ev Could Save Fleets Up To 90% In Annual Vehicle Operating Costs. This Is Due To Either Reduced Or Eliminated Spend On Diesel Engine Oil Diesel Exhaust Fluid And Long Term Engine Maintenance. To Further Support This The 580 Ev Comes With Case Site Watch™ As Standard. All Of This Is Achieved While Retaining The Hallmark Features Operators Expect From A Case Backhoe Loader As Galano Explains: “The 580 Ev Performs And Handles Exactly Like A Traditional Case Backhoe. This Is Crucial When Looking To Apply Exciting New Technologies To Any Case Machine And Means Operators Can Experience The Same Digging Lifting And Craning Capabilities From A Much Quieter And Emissions Free Working Environment.” As With Project Tetra The Methane Powered Concept Wheel Loader Launched At Bauma 2019 Case Has Partnered With Michelin On The Tyres For The 580 Ev. The Michelin Cross Grip Tyres Used On The Concept Machine Feature A Non Directional Tread Design Resulting In Exceptional Handling Comfort And High Load Capacity On Surfaces Ranging From Asphalt To Snow. The 580 Ev Represents Case’s First Official Entry Into The Electric Construction Equipment Market. In Partnership With Its Sister Company Fpt Industrial Case Will Continue To Look For Electrification And Alternative Fuels Options That Make A Sustainable Construction Equipment Future Possible.
