New Bobcat and Doosan Portable Power Products at EHS

Visitors to next year’s Executive Hire Show in Coventry, England from 7-8 February 2018, will be able to see the latest products for the plant and tool hire industry from Bobcat and Doosan Portable Power on Stand Number B115. They include the Bobcat 1.7 tonne E17z Zero Tail Swing (ZTS) canopy excavator and, being shown at the exhibition for the first time, the new G20IIIA generator and 7/31+ compressor generator incorporating a new 8.5 kVA on-board generator from Doosan Portable Power.

The E17z canopy model completes Bobcat’s 1-2 tonne range of compact excavators. It provides an unmatched combination of features for a machine of this size, from ZTS and the roomy and comfortable operator area to the ease of transport thanks to a shipping weight close to 1.6 tonne; its impressive digging forces and working range; the smoothness of the workgroup functions; the fast hydraulic performance in terms of low cycle times and its reliability, durability and easy service access.

In the E17z, the ZTS functionality is taken a level further using Bobcat’s Zero House Swing design, in which the front upper structure is also fully protected by ensuring the front corners are kept within the swing circle when the tracks are in the fully expanded position.

The uncompromised operator environment on the E17z in combination with excellent visibility, provides unmatched operator comfort and safety. The E17z has a standard operating weight of 1749 kg and a maximum digging depth of 2249 mm. Many of the well accepted features in the current Bobcat 1-2 tonne range such as the retractable undercarriage, upper-structure tie-down points and advanced diagnostics are available as standard on the E17z.

As well as the E17z, Bobcat offers a complete range of micro- and mini-excavators, compact loaders, telehandlers and attachments for the plant and tool hire industry.

New G20IIIA Generator

The new G20IIIA generator from Doosan Portable Power provides a prime power output of 19 kVA and is driven by a Yanmar 4TNV88 19 kW diesel engine, meeting EU Stage IIIA engine emission regulations for generators. Sharing a similar design to the G40-IIIA to G200-IIIA platforms launched previously, the new G20IIIA generator offers robustness and reliability, high performance and a wide choice of features to meet the needs of temporary power applications.

Of particular interest for the rental market, the fuel tank configuration on the new G20IIIA generator will ensure autonomy of at least 47 hours at 75% of the load. Safe and easy access to operation and maintenance areas has been a priority throughout the design of the new generator.

A user-friendly feature is the electrical control and power compartment which has been designed to meet the highest safety, reliability and flexibility requirements. All control functions are grouped together on the 4510 Deep Sea Electronics simple-to-use operator control panel, displaying critical operating parameters at a glance.

From the construction site, to the concert stage, to the front lines of disaster relief efforts, the new G20IIIA generator offers hire companies, contractors, event organizers, emergency services, general industry and many other customers the highest quality, backed by dedicated technical and service support worldwide.

New Compressor Generator

Another development from Doosan Portable Power on the EHS stand is a new generator option for the company’s portable compressor range aimed at the utilities industry and rental companies serving this sector. The new 8.5 kVA generator option meets a specific requirement in utility work to meet the demands of the latest fusion welding equipment, providing electrical power that can also be used for lights and tools together with compressed air for powering breakers and other pneumatic equipment.

The new generator option is available on two machines – the 7/31+ model, which is being shown at EHS, providing a free air delivery of 3.0 m3/min at an output pressure of 7 bar. The 8.5 kVA generator option is also available on the larger 7/41+ portable compressor, supplying 4.0 m3/min of compressed air at 7 bar output pressure.

Like all Doosan compressors, the modular design of the 7/31+ and 7/41+ ensures that a wide range of optional equipment can be added easily. As well as the ‘Tough Top’ polymer canopy, they can include LED lights, a Heavy Duty light grill, a number plate clip, wheel nut indicators and a ‘bunded base’.

Doosan Portable Power offers a comprehensive range of portable compressors, generators and lighting products for the plant and tool hire industry. Completing the line-up are construction tools such as air-powered chipping hammers, pickhammers, jackhammers and paving breakers for work in demolition, utilities, quarrying and industrial markets.
