44 • ROCK products • March 2019 EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY LOADING & HAULING CASE Construction Equipment intro- duced two new C-Series motor graders. Available in both standard and All Wheel Drive (AWD) configurations, the 836C and 856C achieve Tier 4 Final compliance with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) engine technology that increases fuel efficiency, keeps exhaust temperatures down and eliminates the need for regeneration. The new models include: •  836C: 138 to 156 hp; 24,466-lb. oper- ating weight. •  836C AWD: 138 to 156 hp; 27,128-lb. operating weight. •  856C: 173 to 190 hp; 33,966-lb. oper- ating weight. •  856C AWD: 173 to 190 hp; 34,848-lb. operating weight. Precision Performance – The motor graders include several innovative fea- tures that help simplify operation and allow operators to focus on precision and jobsite safety. An Ergopower transmission and torque converter provide smooth automatic shifting. An automatic differential lock combined with automatic no-spin power split- ting instantly transfers torque from a slipping tire to one with more traction without any operator intervention. The AWD models feature a "Creep Mode" that engages just the front wheels at the push of a button. This allows the machine to move at extremely slow speeds for finish grad- ing and applications with exceptionally tight tolerances. Advanced Hydraulics – The 836C and 856C motor graders feature one of the most intelligent high-precision load-sensing hydraulic circuits avail- able on the market. A direct-activated axial piston pump delivers only the required amount of hydraulic pressure where it is needed. Direct-mounted hydraulic controls increase lever rigidity and reduce play in the system, giving the operator pos- itive feedback and better control from the hydraulic system during precision applications. Innovative Design – An exclusive A-frame drawbar provides superior stability due to its heavy-duty boxed frame design. The roller-mounted encapsulated circle is activated by inter- nal gearing, which minimizes wear and increases the lifetime of its components. CASE, Philippi-Hagenbuch Innovates New Tailgate Style Philippi-Hagenbuch Inc. (PHIL) has revolutionized a new version of its Autogate Tailgate – a PHIL innovation unveiled 50 years ago specifically for Komatsu rigid frame trucks. With its introduction in 1969, PHIL's Autogate Tailgate was the first commercially available tailgate and has since become the de facto standard in off-highway truck tailgates utilized in quarries and mines around the world, according to Josh Swank, the company's vice presi- dent of sales and marketing. PHIL unveiled this newest version of the Autogate Tailgate at AGG1. The new design reflects PHIL's commitment to keep pace with client feedback and con- stantly innovate new ideas to maximize efficiency and minimize maintenance on the ever-changing models of off-highway haul trucks available. PHIL's new Autogate Tailgate for Komatsu rigid frame trucks is designed with a traditional outrigger that bolts to the undercarriage of the off-highway truck. This new design does not require any welding to the frame, allowing operators to retain Komatsu's original OEM truck frame warranty. The design's new "banana superstruc- ture" provides the stability, quality and structural integrity that Philip- pi-Hagenbuch is known for without sacrificing best-of-class opening clear- ance at full dump. The new design minimizes frustrations of end-user service departments concerning premature tailgate chain wear and roller-box maintenance found previ- ously on tailgates designed for Komatsu rigid frame trucks. When capacity is a concern, the PHIL Autogate Tailgate for Komatsu rigid frame trucks can also be built up for sideboards. Sideboards are available in one-inch increments from 6-inches to 40-inches in height and provide a unified body height while increasing the volumetric capacity of the truck body, helping operators achieve opti- mal loads. The newest Autogate Tailgate and its full slate of options are available for order on Komatsu HD405-8, HD465-8 and HD605-8 haul trucks. Retrofit kits to convert legacy tailgates for Komatsu HD series rigid frame trucks in -5, -7 and -7EO models will be available in late spring 2019.
