Suction Excavator Innovation Proves Itself - continued

Mounted on the two metre wide Mitsubishi Fusso chassis, the City Sucker incorporates a single hydraulically driven high performance fan with a maximum capacity of 11,300 m/h. The power assisted suction hose has a maximum reach of 3.55 m with the option to extend and also rotates 180°. TT-UK introduced them to the City Sucker and arranged a demonstration. All those in attendance quickly appreciated the efficiency and suction power of the City Sucker, which surpassed anything previously seen.

Most of all, due to its size which can manoeuvre onto many restrictive job sites thus greatly improving productivity. Mounted on the two metre wide Mitsubishi Fusso chassis, the City Sucker incorporates a single hydraulically driven high performance fan with a maximum capacity of 11,300³ m/h.

The holding capacity of the material container is 1.1 m³. Material can be discharged into skips, directly into Dumpy bags using the City Suckers unique holder or it can be taken off site.

As with all TT-UK/RSP Suction Excavators, design and options can be tailored to suit particular job applications. The 7.5t City Sucker offers Utility companies and contractors additional opportunities to use Suction Excavation at job sites not previously accessible, increasing Health & Safety, keeping job sites clean and increasing job productivity.

A-Plant’s Considerate Solution with VCAS

a modified Vehicle Collision Avoidance System (VCAS) sensor.

A-Plant, working in partnership with Spillard Safety Systems, has found a solution to reduce noise levels on construction sites using a modified Vehicle Collision Avoidance System (VCAS) sensor.

VCAS vehicle safety enhancement system warns operators of immediate dangers within a predetermined range. The system consists of three sensors mounted on the front of the dumper to monitor obstructions; the sensors send a signal to a control box on the dashboard, which then produces an audible alarm.

When mounted on a vehicle in a predetermined configuration a 4 metre primary sensing zone can be achieved, providing effective visual and audible warnings to the vehicle operator. It cannot be turned off or ignored by operators unfamiliar with its features.

A-Plant discussed a number of options with Spillard to safely modify the audible sensors to turn the audio warning alarms off at night and fit a warning light as the alert during the night.
