Sakai America introduced upgrades to three of its single-drum vibratory rollers. The Sakai SV204, SV414TF and SV544FB now feature Tier IV Final engines and enhanced capabilities as single-drum vibratory roller solutions in drum widths 54 to 84 in. (137 to 213 cm).

The upgraded designs are available with either smooth (D) or padfoot (T) drum, with smooth shell kits available for all models and either style, padfoot or smooth (DF and TF), on the SV544. A strike-off blade will be available across the line as well for the padfoot drum model (TB) and padfoot with shell-kit models (FB).

SV204

The enhanced safety and performance of the new 54-in. roller include an elevated exhaust pipe promoting health and safety even while compacting in trench applications.

The SV204 includes Sakai’s drum vibration system and floating deck, isolating the operator from vibration. The roller is powered by a high-output, EPA Tier IV Final 3.3 L Kubota engine.

Maximum operating weight and axle load specifications are for full fuel and water and vary by rig configuration. Maximum weight for the various configurations range from 10,220 lbs. (4,675 kg) to 11,980 lbs. (5,435 kg); load on front axle, from 4,795 lbs. (2, 175 kg) to 6,560 lbs.s (2,975 kg); with load on rear axle generally 5,425 lbs. (2,460 kg).

Vibratory frequency of 1,800 vpm with amplitude of 0.039, 0.060 or 0.065 in. (1, 1.52 or 1.65 mm) depending on configuration.

Ground clearance is 11 in. (29 cm) with smooth drum and 12 in. (30 cm) for pad foot configurations. Curb clearance is 12 in. (31.5 cm) in all but the padfoot with blade version, for which curb clearance is 13 in. (33 cm).

SV414TF Soil Roller

Powered by a Cummins QSF2.8, Tier IV Final diesel engine, the Sakai SV414 roller’s basic maximum operating weight with pad-foot drum and shell kit is 18,464 lbs. (8,375 kg) with a front axle load of 10,450 lbs. (4,740 kg) and rear axle load of 7,893 lbs. (3,580 kg).

Like all Sakai compaction machines, the SV414 soil roller with 67-in. (170 cm) wide drum offers a variety of frequency and amplitude combinations. For the SV414 these are two frequency options, a low frequency of 1,800 vpm and high frequency of 2,280 vpm, with two amplitude options, low amplitude of 0.020 in. (0.5 mm ) and high amplitude of 0.039 in. (1.0 mm).

Ground clearance is 13.4 in. (34 cm). Curb clearance is 17.3 in. (44 cm), and side clearance of 3.98 in. (10.1 cm).

The SV414 soil roller features Sakai’s proprietary traction control system, and all vibration controls are ergonomically located in the instrument panel.

The SV544FB

The SV544FB is an 84-in. dirt roller featuring a Cummins QSF3.8 diesel engine and Sakai’s ECO-Mode for high-performance and low-fuel usage without requiring DPF or Regen cycling.

Excellent drum edge visibility, and Sakai’s traction control system combine for speedy, high-quality compaction with an expanded speed range: 2.5 to 6 mph (4 to 10 kmh).

Maximum operating weight of the SV544 with pad-foot drum, strike-off blade and shell kit is 31,530 lbs. (14,315 kg) with front axle load of 20,020 lbs. (9,090 kg) and rear axle load of 11,310 lbs. (5,135 kg).

Several frequency and amplitude combinations are possible, ranging from low frequency 1,700 vpm to a high frequency setting of 2,000 vpm, with a low amplitude of 0.021 in. (0.53 mm ) or a high amplitude of 0.049 in. (1.24 mm).

Ground clearance of 18.5 in. (47 cm). Curb clearance 22.2 in. (56.5 cm) and side clearance of 7.3 in. (18.5 cm).

Specifications may change without notice.

UTC touts $23 billion deal as stock drops, Boeing turns critic

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Investors and Boeing Co gave two thumbs down on Tuesday to aerospace and industrial company United Technologies Corp $23 billion plan to buy avionics maker Rockwell Collins Inc.

The acquisition, announced on Monday, would be the largest in aerospace history and create a new player in the top echelon of suppliers to Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier and other plane makers.

United Tech shares were down 5.2 percent after Boeing said it would and use the power granted by its contracts with the companies, and its sway with regulators, “to protect our interests.”

The stock had fallen more than 4 percent before Boeing’s statement, as analysts factored in United Tech’s decision to halt share buybacks for three to four years and earnings dilution caused by the cash-and-stock deal. Analysts expected $2 billion in buybacks in the second half of 2017 alone.

The loss of years of buybacks and Boeing’s unusual blowback came as plane makers are pressing United Tech and other suppliers for price cuts and trying to compete against them on high-margin services and spare parts.

By making more of the components used on each Boeing and Airbus SE aircraft, analysts say, United Technologies-Rockwell Collins would gain leverage to resist that pressure.

United Tech Chief Executive Greg Hayes, who would lead the combined company, brushed aside Boeing’s concerns.

“The whole idea of this deal is to be able to drive more innovative solutions at lower cost for our customers – both the (plane makers) and the airlines,” Hayes told Reuters on Tuesday, shortly before Boeing issued its criticism.

Rockwell’s skill with software combined with United Tech’s expertise in numerous aircraft components allows the company to offer new “digital” products that airlines want, he said.

“We’ll be able to do predictive analytics that many others can’t do, and that’s how you add value to airline customers,” Hayes said, referring to data-crunching that allows airlines to spot problems in engines and other components before they fail.

HAYES ASSURED ENDERS

Hayes said he had assured Airbus CEO Tom Enders that United Tech’s Pratt & Whitney unit will stay on track to deliver between 350 and 400 jetliner engines this year.

United Tech fell behind on engine deliveries this year due to production problems, and Airbus raised concern last week about the deal distracting United Tech.

“Pratt has nothing to do with this,” Hayes said, noting United Tech’s aerospace unit, not Pratt, will combine with Rockwell Collins to create Collins Aerospace.

Hayes also knocked down speculation that the purchase would prompt United Tech to spin off its Carrier air conditioner or Otis elevator units, saying the company needs their cash flow to help pay down debt from the deal.

But Hayes did not rule out such sales in the longer term.

“After the deal is done, and after we pay down some debt, we’re going to go back and look,” he said.

If the company’s share price does not reflect its value, he said, “we’ll need to do something.”

United Tech could sell “non-core pieces” such as home security in the meantime, Hayes said. But given taxes and lost earnings, “it’s hard to make financial sense out of those transactions” unless they fetch a high price, he said.

Rockwell’s shares rose 0.3 percent to $131.00 in afternoon trading. United Tech shares, part of the Dow Jones industrial average, fell 5.2 percent to $111.82.

“We see limited upside near term as share repurchase is withdrawn and deal timing becomes an investor focus,” analyst Jeff Sprague at Vertical Research Partners said in a note.

United Tech’s engines and systems portfolio has little overlap with the avionics, seats and interiors businesses of Rockwell, which Hayes said should mean little trouble during the necessary regulatory review.

The combination, if successful, would mark the rise of a second engines-to-seating supplier, after jet-engine maker Safran SA’s pending $7.7-billion deal to buy seat maker Zodiac Aerospace. Safran said on Tuesday it would look at assets that might come up for sale after the United Tech-Rockwell deal.

United Tech expects to borrow $15 billion and will assume $7 billion in Rockwell debt to fund the deal, which is expected to close by the third quarter of 2018.

United Tech said the acquisition would add to earnings in its first full year and yield at least $500 million in cost savings by the fourth year of operation.

Raiders One Step Closer to Building Las Vegas Stadium :: Story ID: 36310 :: Construction Equipment Guide

LAS VEGAS (AP) The Oakland Raiders are one step closer to being able to start building their proposed stadium in Las Vegas after local officials approved the use of the land the team purchased near the city’s world-famous casino-resorts.

Commissioners in Nevada’s Clark County voted unanimously to approve use permits required for the proposed 65,000-seat stadium. They also waived a requirement for thousands of onsite parking spots. But they gave the team a year to figure out a solution for a problem that has dogged the project.

Grading and other site-preparation work can take place at the site west of the Las Vegas Strip, near the Mandalay Bay casino-resort. But the county and the Raiders still have to enter into a development agreement, which among other things would detail infrastructure requirements for the team, before major construction begins.

“Thirty-one months is what we have available,” John Wood, senior vice president at Mortenson Construction, said of the project’s construction timeline. “… That is exactly the schedule that we had in Minnesota to build U.S. Bank Stadium, and there we went through three harsh Minnesota weekends. So, we’ll have two-and-a-half Nevada summers to go through. But we still have great confidence in our ability to complete on time.”

FAA Clears Raiders’ Plan for Las Vegas Stadium

LAS VEGAS (AP) The Federal Aviation Administration has determined that the Oakland Raiders’ proposed stadium in Las Vegas would not be a hazard to aircraft.

The federal agency’s decision cleared the way for officials in Nevada’s Clark County to consider approving construction permits.

The FAA last month issued a notice requesting public comments on the proposed 65,000-seat stadium. It later cut the five-week public comment period by three weeks. The change allowed the $1.9 billion project to stay on schedule.

The agency’s review of the project concerned the stadium’s proposed 225-ft. height.

The Raiders want to play in Las Vegas in 2020. Their ambitious construction timeline for the partly tax-funded stadium calls for some site work to begin by December.
