28 • ROCK products • November 2017 The Q&A Forum to offer products aimed at the typical demanding customer applications, but we also offer "GC" products for support applications where customers expect fewer hours per year. On the opposite end of the spectrum, in higher hour applications that require the ultimate in productivity and efficiency, we have developed and introduced machine platforms and technology such as our "XE" models with hybrid power trains. One great example of this is electric drive technology. We know that cer- tain machine applications benefit from electric drive and we've recently announced our 988K XE electric drive loader which can deliver 25 percent or greater overall efficiency and up to 10 percent more productivity in load- and-carry compared to the standard powershift 988K. CLARKE: We continue to focus on all products; impactors, jaws, cones and screens. and we have several new products we are excited to launch in 2018. For the record, Kleemann's product brand names are the Mobicat mobile primary jaw on crawler chas- sis with feeding unit, pre-screen and conveyors built in various sizes rang- ing from 221 to 1,100 tph capacity; the Mobirex mobile primary impac- tor on crawler chassis with feeding unit, pre-screen and conveyors built in various sizes ranging from 386 to 772 tph capacity; the Mobicone mobile secondary crushing machines with feeding unit, cone crusher and a screen to produce up to three particle sizes; the Mobifox mobile secondary crushing machines with feeding unit, impact crusher and a screen produc- ing up to three particle sizes; and the Mobiscreen mobile screening units, producing up to four particle sizes with fixed or swiveling discharge belts, with a screening surface depen- dent on ultimate use. SEUSS: The WA500 yard loader is the perfect tool for two-pass loading on highway trucks leaving the gate. It allows owners to move more trucks through the facility faster, with less chance that trucks are re-assigned because they are waiting to get loaded. MCLAUGHLIN: Our core product lines of crushing, screening, material handling, washing and classifying, track- and wheel-mounted portable units remain our focal points. We are currently expanding our focus on stationary and modular systems both in the United States and international markets. With such a broad product offering, KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens offer com- prehensive total market solutions to the end users. LEPP: Van der Graaf 's Extreme Duty line is growing quite well. With our new Planetary Gear systems, we are now competing in harsh environments with drives up to 350 hp. SPAKE: I deal mainly with the large end of our product portfolio – large wheel loaders and excavators and articu- lated haulers. Most of our customers know Volvo for our articulated haulers. Volvo developed the world's first artic- ulated hauler over 50 years ago. Today, Volvo haulers tend to enjoy worldwide favor. Most recently we have introduced three brand new products. Two are state-of-the-art wheel loader models – the L260H and the L350H, which will be quickly adopted in the industry. The third is the new A60H articulated hauler – the first true 60-ton hauler on the market. Volvo is still on the leading edge of introducing this product to a very interested marketplace. In early 2017, Volvo launched ActiveCare Direct, a service which provides 24/7/365 machine monitoring and monthly fleet reports directly from Volvo and man- aged by local dealers. The service helps customers manage fleets and improve operations by reducing idle times and machine abuse, and improving overall fleet utilization. It helps cut through the noise of telematics and allows cus- tomers to use telematics data to its full potential without having to spend a lot of extra time deciphering alarm codes. KRAUSE: We have a very broad product line in both crushing and screening and wet processing for the aggregates indus- try. There does seem to be the growing trend, which we saw some years ago start in Europe, of modular systems which require little to no engineering and can be set up quickly and moved as the market changes. Speed to market and ability to deliver the savings that were needed to acquire the capital for the project are a very large focus.
