It is offered in two configurations: the standard version has a track gauge of 74 inches (188 cm); the Low Ground Pressure (LGP) configuration has an 81-inch (206-cm) track gauge. Both are available with either powershift transmission or direct drive.
Standard configuration, direct drive tractors were manufactured in the USA, using a 23X, 25X, or 26X serial number prefix; in Japan, using a 47X prefix; and in France, using a 21Y or 43X prefix. The 26X and 21Y components are special application (SA) tractors with 90 FWHP. The 47X unit has [[roll over protection system] (ROPS) adaptability.
Standard configuration powershift tractors were manufactured in Japan, with a 48X prefix, also in France, with a 44X prefix. The 48X unit features a direct injection scroll metering fuel system (SMFS) and 75 FWHP.
LGP configuration, direct push tractors were manufactured in Japan, using a 49X prefix, also in France, with a 45X prefix. The 49X unit includes ROPS.
LGP configuration powershift tractors were manufactured in France just, using a 46X prefix.
Caterpillar also manufactured three D5B tractors with 60-inch (152-cm) monitor gauges. The drive unit has been created using a 22X prefix only, in USA. The powershift unit was fabricated with a 24X prefix, in the united states, also in France. The 8MB unit includes a 3306 direct injection (DI) engine.

Modifications
Between 1978 and 1981, Caterpillar installed a 3306 DI engine, SMFS and a fail-safe parking brake into most units manufactured in Japan and France, beginning with 44X00411, 21Y00558, 43X00722, 45X00422, 46X00724, 47X00520, 48X00589, and 49X01412.
However, many of the above features were added separately on the American units. The 3306 DI engine and SMFS were installed in 1980, beginning with 22X00439, 23X00778, 24X00413, 25X01815, and 26X00878. The fail-safe parking brake was added in 1981, beginning with 22X00531, 23X00842, and 25X02073.

Production of 23X ended in 1982.
In 1984, Caterpillar installed a standardized blow fan in both SA units (26X and 21Y), beginning with 26X01146 and 21Y00608. The 26X unit had its horsepower increased to 105 FWHP at the same time.
Production of 25X and 26X ended in 1984.
Production of 22X, 24X, 43X, and 45X ended in 1985.
Production of 47X, 49X, 44X, and 46X ended in 1986.
Production of 48X ended in 1987.
Production of 21Y and 8MB ended in 1988. Caterpillar began production of the D5B in Brazil the same year.
Two units were manufactured in Brazil. Both are standard configuration tractors with 3306 direct injection engines and Bosch fuel injection systems. They were intended for the domestic Brazilian market only. The direct drive unit has 105 FWHP and was given a 5LD prefix; the powershift unit has 114 FWHP and was given an 8HD prefix.
Production in Brazil ended in 1992.

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.

volvo-history

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.

Catd5gxl

Driving

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.

Maneuverability

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.

Construction

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

Visibility

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.

Summary

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.
