Cat wheel loader features improved serviceability
The Caterpillar 980H wheel loader features key changes to improve productivity, operator comfort and serviceability when compared to the 980G Series II, which it replaces. A new Cat engine with ACERT technology, the addition of electronic clutch pressure control, and a new cooling system work together to boost productivity. Increased cab insulation reduces sound, and an improved ladder design eases access and egress. A new hood actuation system and grouped hydraulic pressure taps improve serviceability. Options include a windshield cleaning package, the Lincoln Quicklube automatic lubrication system, and the next-generation Product Link for tracking and managing the 980H, and high intensity quartz halogen work lights for applications requiring additional lighting. www.cat.com  Reader Service 1072

Timberwolf features Back Saver Package
The TW-5 is Timberwolfs most popular commercial log splitter. Its reliability, fast cycle time and powerful push-block make it a good choice for commercial users demanding dependability and reliability. To make the unit more productive, easier to operate, as well as easier on the back, Timberwolf has added a package of options: hydraulic lift, table grate and six-way wedge. With a touch of a lever, the hydraulic lift will handle large, unwieldy logs up to 500 lbs. The six-way wedge greatly increases yield, and the table grate holds the split logs at splitter height for back-saving sorting and stacking. All components are of the same high quality used in Timberwolf's heavy-duty commercial line of log splitters and firewood processors. www.timberwolfcorp.com Reader Service 1074

New tire puncture technology from Goodyear
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has developed what it calls revolutionary commercial tire technology that repairs tire punctures when they occur, greatly reducing vehicle downtime and service calls. Goodyears new DuraSeal technology features a built-in sealant that allows truck drivers to continue operating after a tire is punctured, and the tire to remain in service until it is retreaded. The new technology uses a gel-like, solvent-free compound built into the inner liner of the tire. It is designed to consistently and instantly seal punctures up to 1/4 in the tread area. DuraSeal adds only about five to seven pounds per tire, and provides excellent sealing efficiency from 40 degrees to 100 degrees (F). www.goodyear.com Reader Service 1075
