Custom roller

Featuring 20-, 30-, and 45- degree troughing idlers (available in 7- and 8-in. diameters), each CEMA F idler has a 3000-lb. load rating based on a minimum L10 life of 60,000 hours at 500 rpm. The idlers are available with 36- to 96-in. belt widths. Superior Industries. www.superior-ind.com.

Paving admixture

Navitas 33 rheology-controlling admixture acts as a lubricant, improving response to vibration and enhancing consolidation, extrusion, and final surface appearance. Ideal for use in mainline concrete paving, low-slump concrete, curb and gutter, and median barriers, the admixture lowers the yield stress—meaning less force is required to initiate flow in the concrete—without affecting the viscosity. BASF Corp. www.basf.com.

Versatile paver

The Titan 8820 is a 19.3-ton paver designed for placing any kind of wearing, binder, and base course material in large paving widths and thicknesses. Powered by a 243-hp Deutz diesel engine, the paver can install roller-compacted concrete, cement-treated base, nontreated base, stone, and soil cement. Also, the paver can accommodate a variety of screeds, including fixed and hydraulically extendable screeds. Volvo Construction Equipment. www.volvoce.com.

Small laser-guided screed

The Mini Screed offers laser-controlled accuracy in a unit small enough to fit into the bed of a pickup truck. Weighing 352 lbs. and having a 6-ft. head, the machine cuts the concrete to a finished grade, screeds it flat, and vibrates it in a single pass. Somero Enterprises. www.somero.com.

Handheld construction camera

iBeam facilitates communication between a jobsite and offsite personnel. It transmits live images from the heart of the project to viewers located anywhere in the world, so situations can be clearly understood, possible solutions can be discussed, and resolutions can be documented—without travel or costly delays. Project managers find it speeds up responses to information requests and saves significant amounts of time (and travel expense) from not having to repeatedly visit the jobsite. iBeam Systems Inc. www.ibeamsystems.com.


Hammer drill/driver

The innovative, lightweight, and well-balanced SFH 144-A delivers reliable power and durability. With CPC lithium-ion battery technology, you get the power of most 18 V tools with the weight of many 12 V tools. With all-metal gears, the powerful, highly efficient motor delivers long-lasting power with up to 619 in.-lbs. of torque. The drop-resistant, glass-fiber-reinforced casing can withstand even the toughest jobsite conditions. Hilti. www.us.hilti.com.



Deck coating

The 360NF/950NF/951NF polyurethane deck coating system features an extremely versatile, low-odor basecoat that can be applied to any thickness and in sloped areas where build is critical. When mixed with a catalyst, it will cure in three hours without pinholes or gassing. The fast-cure, high-performance topcoats reach a hardness comparable to epoxy within 24 hours, allowing for even the abuse of vehicular traffic. Tremco Commercial Sealants and Waterproofing. www.tremcosealants.com.

Air-ride rear suspensions

PRIMAAX heavy-duty air-ride rear suspensions are suitable for dump trucks, cranes, and other serious jobs. They feature large-volume air springs and durable shock absorbers, which provide the operator with a high degree of control during lane changes and tight maneuvers. Each suspension provides nearly 11 in. of ground clearance, which makes it easier to negotiate rough terrain. They include a number of life-extending features, such as premium torque rods and outboard-mounted longitudinal rods. Hendrickson Truck Suspension Systems. www.hendrickson-intl.com.

Collision avoidance system

The SV-CLCD70B and SV-CLCD56B collision avoidance systems use up to two cameras to cover blind spots and other visibility problems. The day/night sensor ensures good picture quality, even in low-light conditions. The compact, flat-screen monitor takes up minimal space, and it can be set to display automatically when the attached vehicle reverses, or whenever the driver sees fit. A built-in microphone enables the driver to hear what's going on as well. Safety Vision. www.safetyvision.com.
