provides workers, handlers and end customers with a safer working surface.

Roadcrusher Processes Road Waste
The Fahr Roadcrusher Forester C-2000 from Fahr Industries is able to continuously process waste material on the road surface, avoiding the costs associated with removing oversized material to be crushed and then replacing it. The Roadcrusher quickly attaches to a front-end wheeled loader, after removing the bucket, and uses a hammer and anvil system to recycle asphalt, concrete and rock into smaller aggregate. Powered by a 225-hp Cat 3208 diesel engine, the crusher is capable of processing a single windrow of material at a time, while travelling about one mile a day, and can crush material up to 16 inches in diameter down to two inch aggregate (mostly one inch) in a single pass, the company says. www.fahrindustries.com   Reader Service Card #389

Wagner Introduces Stat-Pak for Windows

Wood Hog Features Tilting Hammermill
The Fecon BA 6000 and BA 8000 wood hogs offer an all-new tilting hammermill feature for easy servicing. The hammermill hood is elevated by first raising the feed roller and pinning it into a locked position vertically against the engine compartment. Using the same cylinder function, the 62 hammermill is then tilted vertically to 90 degrees. The tilt feature increases safety levels, the company says, because the operator no longer stands beneath the feed roller during servicing. In addition, screen changes are simplified, as the screens can be removed and replaced through the top of the wood hog instead of through the sides or back. The 73,000-lb BA wood hogs efficiently reduce wood waste and other organics and feature a 40x60 feed opening, a 600-hp or 800-hp Caterpillar engine, 24 fixed-position hammer assemblies and a hydraulically-operated 55 wide primary rubber belt discharge conveyor. www.fecon.com  Reader Service Card #393

New Snubber Features Grease Groove
The Prolenc snubber from Quadco Equipment offers a new exiting
grease groove design to the original alloy friction sleeve. During lubrication of the sleeve, grease is allowed to exit the housing, ensuring lubrication of the wear surface and purging the groove of wear contaminates. All new assemblies are shipped with this design and replacement sleeves are available for existing systems. Housings with single grease points will require a simple field modification of drilling an additional grease zerk location, the company says. www.quadco.com   Reader Service Card #394
