Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH, based in Garching near Munich, unveiled new products in timber handling with special focus on sustainability and safety. Cat MH3040 – The MH3040 material handler for use with trailers with a towing capacity of up to 50 tons. It is equipped with a trailer hitch, a robust front end with a maximum reach of 14.4 metres and a good 13 metres of pile height, and a 1.75-square-metre timber grab. This allows timber loading and onward transport to be realized in one complete system, which significantly increases efficiency at the timber yard. The Cat MH3040 impresses with the highest payloads and greatest stability in its class, and with fuel consumption that Zeppelin says is second to none.
Output and efficiency improved in equal measure
Also a new-generation Cat 972 wheel loader, equipped with all the performance, comfort and safety features relevant to timber operations. The Cat 972 features further reduced fuel consumption combined with higher productivity, helping the timber industry to improve output and efficiency in equal measure in the interests of sustainability.
Even the most robust technology needs reliable service
As a rule, machines must be able to operate quickly and reliably under full load. A key criterion here is their availability, which is due to the extensive mass movement. To this end, customers can take advantage of extensive service offerings provided by Zeppelin so that routine machine maintenance is constantly ensured. They play a central role for companies that work with wood. It is therefore all the more important that construction machines offer good visibility. Such features can also be the subject of technical discussions at the show. “We hope to be able to talk to many visitors and give them an understanding of our high-performance Cat construction machines and services,” say Markus Riedlberger and Stefan Besendorfer, who are responsible in Zeppelin’s product management for product groups such as the exhibits on display.
