Tieman Unveiles PBS Approved 20m B-double Tanker

Tieman has recently unveiled PBS-approved 20m B-double bulk liquid combinations that offer significant payload gains for the bulk tanker transport market.

Using the Conventional Mass Limits (CML) network, it can reach 59.75 tonnes, and importantly according to Tieman it is also approved to run on General Access routes with a 50.5-tonne limit.

“Our new Tieman tri-bogie combination is a game changer for the bulk liquid segment of the industry, as it can provide payload gains between eight and 12 per cent compared to a conventional 19m B-double on HML routes,” says Joint Managing Director, Colin Tieman.

According to Colin, the eight to 12 per cent increase is the result of reducing tare weight – “a major reason why we they are able to achieve such a huge net payload advantage on the 20m design,” he explained.

History of Volvo Construction Equipment

Volvo Construction Equipment, started in 1832, is the world’s oldest industrial company still active in the construction machinery market. Today, Volvo CE is a world leader for the design, engineering and manufacturing of equipment for industry and construction. Volvo machines are recognised as being the world leader for quality, safety, comfort and reliability.


Industrial development of the old agricultural ways was accelerated in the mid-1800s. Ideas and innovations grew from the technical talent of regular farm owners solving their everyday problems with mechanical solutions. Three technical genius in particular, Johan Theofron Munktell and the brothers Jean and Carl Gerhard Bolinder built up the company of Bolinder-Munktell which today is Volvo Construction Equipment.

From the beginning, the company produced on demand for customers like simple tools for lathes, grinders and iron chests. In the 1850s Bolinder started producing its own steam engines and in 1853 the first Swedish steam locomotive was produced but the big seller starting that same year was the locomobile – a type of steam-powered traction engine for heavy haulage and driving mobile machinery. Munktell in particular was a innovative genius designing a printing press, tooling machines, drills and even started his own brewery.

In 1906 the first of the companies many construction machines saw the light of day, the steam roller. Following the steam roller was the first Swedish farm tractor that came a few year later in 1913. Even from very early in both the Bolinder company as well as Munktells engines were a large part of the production. Together with Palmcrantzs Verkstäder, J & CG Bolinders Mekaniska Verkstads Bolinder-Munktell even built a steam powered submarine between 1879 and 1883.

In 1950s Bolinder-Munktell was acquired by Volvo and this began one of the most innovative periods in the company’s history. The Wheel-loader was created by reversing a tractor and adding a bucket over the rear larger wheels. Then in the 1960s Volvo introduced the world’s first articulated hauler – the Gravel Charlie. By 1985 Volvo had entered the North American market and soon after South America and later with the opening up of Europe acquired many industrial producers through out the region and even became a pioneering investor in Korea in the late 80s.

Today Volvo Construction Equipment is a global group and one of the world’s leading manufacturers of trucks, buses, construction equipment and marine and industrial engines – truly a global powerhouse that sprung from the very beginnings of the industrial revolution.

Caterpillar D5G XL Track-Type Tractor Review

The new D5G Track-Type Tractor is designed for all of your construction needs.



The D5G has the power of proven turbocharged six-cylinder Caterpillar 3046T engine which delivers plenty of push. The power is smooth and responsive with excellent fuel economy and low noise emissions thanks to the turbocharger and high pressure fuel injection results. The CAT 3046T engine is designed for improved performance at lower engine speeds important for operators working in tight spaces at part throttle.

One thing I’m not a big fan of is the steering is proportionally controlled by the joystick position, but not the speed. Speed is not controlled by proportionally pushing the joystick further forward of backwards, but rather by two push buttons on the joy stick. You push one button to step up the speed, and the other to step it down. Each time you push the button it goes a little faster or a little slower. An indicator on the dash displays the machines current operating speed. When the joystick is moved to the neutral position, the tractor stops.


The D5G easily maneuvers through side loading blade applications by engaging counterrotation briefly to correct machine position. Counterrotation also provides quick and easy maneuvering in confined work areas. The D5G has excellent tracking providing increased productivity on side slopes.


The Variable Pitch, Power Angle and Tilt (VPAT) blade has 14% increased capacity and is designed and built for versatility, durability and strength. The trunion is now mounted on the c-frame instead of the blade and the trunnion ball size has been increased to provide longer life and reduce ownership cost. The pin joints have also been improved to enhance durability and lengthen life. The mainframe has been modelled after larger Caterpillar tractors with a solid back bone for handling forces generated during tough dozing. Robotic welding process delivers reliability and durability need for construction remediation sites.

Operator Station

The redesigned Operator Station is quieter and more spacious, based on the cab designs of the large Caterpillar track-type tractors. A new climate control system, increased leg room and enhanced visibility all enhance the ergonomics.

Other Cab comforts:
• Armrest adjustments
• Directed air vents
• Wide angle rear view mirror
• Cup-holder
• 12 volt power port
• Radio ready factory installed speaker and antennae
• Dome light
• Coat hook
• Tie down for lunch box
• Air conditioner


The operator station provides an improved view of the blade and work site with 13% more glass area. The Angled doors on the left and right hand sides delivers improved visibility to the blade corners and edges. The operator can easily see blade corners and cutting edges so no more grading by feel.


The D5G combines the power of a larger tractor with the versatility and maneuverability of a smaller machine in meeting a wide range of job applications. Its comfortable operator station, excellent visibility and simple joystick control is everything you expect from Caterpillar.

Komatsu D65ex-15eo Dozer Walk Around


D65EX-15EO Crawler Dozer

The GALEO brand is Komatsu’s lineup of advanced construction and mining equipment. Designed with high productivity, safety and environmental considerations in mind, these machines reflect Komatsu’s commitment to value, reliability and versatility.


Featuring a turbocharged diesel engine with 153KW at 1950rpm which makes Komatsu superior for ripping and dozing operations. The direct fuel-injected engine with turbocharger ensures fuel efficiency while meeting Tier3 EPA emission standards and mounted to the mainframe with rubber cushions to minimise noise and vibration. The electronic power-train control improves reliability and smoother operation while maintaining optimal operational efficiency.

Steering and Travel Controller

The Hydrostatic Steering System delivers smooth, powerful turning powered by and independent hydraulic pump. When turning the outside track moves faster than the inside track resulting in smoother turning while not damaging the ground as the inside track is not locked. When load is applied and travel speed reduced the controller automatically downshifts to optimise the gear operation and fuel efficiency.

Console Interface

The palm controlled travel joystick delivers excellent control with a relaxed posture to reduce fatigue and the proportional pressure controlled blade joystick delivers fine control. Gear shifting is as simple as press of the thumb buttons. The seat has full 15 degree adjustment for ease of operator control during reversing and the console has travel control adjustment both for, aft and height as well as arm.


To ensure convenient maintenance the transmission, HSS and power train oil level gauge and tank are all on the right side of the dozer. A self-diagnosis function occurs when the machine is switched on and action codes are displayed on the console to alert the operator to abnormalities. A warning buzzer sounds for critical actions. The hydraulic piping for the blade is completely enclosed to ensure protection from damage and the modular power-train allows component to be mounted and dis-mounted without oil spillage.

Komatsu components are designed to work together for higher production and longer reliability. Building on almost 100 years of technology and expertise Komatsu provides exceptional technological innovation with reliability and value for money.

The Power of Concrete Pumps

Concrete Pumps in Construction

Concrete Pumping is an efficient and reliable method of placing concrete. A pump works by one piston drawing liquid concrete into one cylinder while the another one simultaneously pushes its concrete out into the discharge pipes. Each time the piston pushes the concrete out a valve switches over and the second piston pushes concrete out while the first draws it in. This ensures a smooth constant flow. The pistons generate the differential in atmospheric pressure required to drag the viscous liquid in and significant force to expel it.

Concrete pump can be attached to a truck or longer units are on semi-trailers. This is known as a boom concrete pump when using a remote-controlled articulating arm to accurately place concrete. Boom pumps are used on mostly on the larger construction projects as they are capable of pumping at very high volumes. They also reduce the necessity for ground-based pipes which are time consuming and often difficult install and require extra labour.

The other type of concrete pump is commonly referred to as a line pump requiring steel or flexible concrete placing hoses to be manually attached to the outlet of the pump. By linking them together concrete can be manually placed. This is time-consuming and they usually pump concrete at lower volumes than boom pumps. Usually not used in construction they are often used for smaller volume concrete placing such as swimming pools, new concrete slabs or concrete patching.

The biggest advantage of boom pumps is their pinpoint accuracy and capacity to deliver concrete to areas that might not be easily or safely accessed. In 1986, Putzmeister 52Z’s were used in the Chernobyl nuclear accident, pumping over 400,000 cubic yards of concrete to entomb reactor number 4. In 2011 Putzmeister 70z and 62z were used on the Fukishima Nuclear reactor to pump seawater to cool the reactor.

The Concrete Pump was particularly important in revolutionising the construction of high rise buildings replacing lift large buckets (or skips) full of concrete via a crane. However a crane could lift one bucket at a time. The ease and speed of pumping concrete makes it the most economical method of concrete placement.
