Global water technology company Xylem released a new dewatering pump developed to significantly increase efficiency, cut costs, and minimize downtime for construction and mining customers. Designed to meet the unique demands of deep-mine and high-pressure water transfers, the Godwin HL270M Dri-Prime Pump can deliver cost savings of up to 10 percent when compared with competing solutions.

With greater hydraulic efficiency and optimized head and flow, it reduces the need for multiple pumps in series, lowers energy consumption, simplifies operations and maintenance, and minimizes premature wear. Field test participants have already used the pump to meet project goals with fewer assets, simpler operations, and reduced maintenance costs. 

The solution, part of the Godwin Ultrahigh-head range, also enables operators to lower their carbon emissions. 

“Meeting the evolving needs of our customers is paramount,” said Mike Ramos, global product manager at Xylem. 
“This product is also a great example of sustainable business being smart business. The pump uses less power, reduces the need for multiple pumps, minimizes premature wear, and offers longer life between repairs.” 
With market-leading higher head and higher-pressure capabilities, the HL270M has delivered immediate and significant benefits during customer trials.  
“One of our customers was facing the challenge of transferring water through an existing pipeline covering seven miles,” explained Jon Craig, application engineer. “Ordinarily this would require using multiple pumps in series, making it an ideal fit for the HL270M. During subsequent testing, the pump has operated seamlessly for more than 1,400 hours and delivered significant operational efficiencies.” 
Designed to meet the needs of mining, industrial, oil and gas, construction and emergency fire backup applications, the Godwin HL270M delivers a maximum head of 984 feet (300 meters) and flows of up to 4,400 gallons per minute. The pump delivers hydraulic efficiency of up to 70 percent through its enclosed impeller. 
With extensive application flexibility, the product also handles a variety of fluids and liquids, including solids up to 1.2 inches in diameter. Available in both diesel and electric drive packages, it will also be offered as a retrofit package for installation on existing customer-owned pumps. All Godwin portable pumps are available with standard engines and motors compliant with regional emissions and efficiency legislation. 
The pump is available with two standard material options – all duplex stainless steel as the primary offering and an option for cast steel pump casing paired with a duplex stainless-steel impeller.  


Mastenbroek, in partnership with Port Industries, unveiled its first-ever utility trencher designed specifically for the North American market. Port Industries will provide full aftermarket parts, sales, and service to support the dealer groups offering Mastenbroek products in North America.

Bulldog’s compact, yet incredibly powerful, design meets the needs of utility cable and pipeline contractors. At 38 feet 7 inches (10.9 meters) long, it can work in confined areas, and its forward discharge conveyor system retracts to an 8-foot-2-inch (2.5-meter) width, making it is easy to transport.  

Borrowing much of Mastenbroek's engineering prowess from the existing 17/17 trencher, Bulldog features a new engine and enhanced digging mechanism. 

Its US EPA Tier 4 Final compliant Volvo 8-litre engine offers the ideal combination of power, efficiency, and emissions. Complementing the Volvo engine, a new diesel hydrostatic drive system was developed by Mastenbroek to power the new heavier digging mechanism, which can achieve the 6-foot trench depth required by US cable layers. 

Bulldog also features an offset cutting head and forward swing conveyor that make it ideal for operating in cities and on highways, where access is restricted and excavated material needs to be loaded onto trucks for removal offsite. A steerable undercarriage enables curved trench lines, and the track lift allows the machine to straddle raised pedestrian walkways. 


Yanmar Compact Equipment now offers the SV40 excavator, an ultra-tight tail-swing excavator boasting power, flexibility and stability in a compact package.

Weighing 4 tons, SV40 features a 39-horsepower electronically controlled Yanmar Tier 4 Final diesel engine. It comes standard with Yanmar’s patented quick coupler, SMARTASSIST remote communication system, and four-year/4,000-hour warranty.  

Available options include a second PTO function, four- or six-way blade and an additional counterweight. 

“Redefining the definition of compact power, our SV40 is pushing the limits on an excavator of its size,” said Buck Storlie, product manager for Yanmar Compact Equipment North America. “With best-in-class power, digging force and lifting capacity, this machine will be a game changer within the compact excavator segment.” 

The addition of the SV40 broadens the current excavator product lineup, with two other ultra-tight tail-swing machines and another six excavators with true zero tail swing. 

Starting with the launch of the world's first compact excavator in 1968, Yanmar has since expanded its excavator offerings to nine total models. Each excavator is purpose-built to overcome the most challenging conditions, work with an efficient use of power, conserve fuel and provide exceptional flexibility, with the same stability and performance expected from more conventional excavators. 

Another all-new, “mini-but-mighty” offering is V7 and V7-HW (Heavy Weight), the smallest wheeled loaders in Yanmar CE’s product range, especially designed to keep ahead of the fast-paced, tough demands of construction, landscaping and rental applications.  

The company has created a wheeled loader that would make life easier for operators in every way possible – starting with maneuverability. With a total height less than 2.5 meters, a width of 1,850 millimeters (with bucket), and overall length of just 5,238 millimeters, the V7/V7-HW can easily fit inside a standard container – transport friendliness that keeps under the 4-meter-height limit dictated by the EU’s Weights and Dimensions Directive of 1996. 

All-wheel drive V7 and V7-HW have an electronically controlled drivetrain, and a top speed of 20 kilometers per hour; 30-kilometers-per-hour maximum speed is available as an option. Customers can further customize their machines by choosing between a premium range of tire brands and sizes, making V7/V7-HW perfectly suited to any application, no matter how tough the terrain. 

Unlike other models in the Yanmar CE range, V7/V7-HW are also unique in eliminating the exterior oscillation and, instead, featuring a clever joint that combines articulation with oscillation, enabling the machine height to be lowered.  

The units are also a useful half-ton lighter than the next largest machines in the Yanmar CE range (weighing 4,250 kilograms and 4,450 kilograms, respectively), making these light-footed and nimble workers ideal for customers landscaping on soft surfaces. Using a new platform that can support both diesel and electric power trains, they fill a gap at the smaller end of the company’s compact wheel loader range. 

Whether transporting materials, rehandling loading, lifting pallets, clearing or laying pipes – all can be tackled with a single V7/V7-HW, thanks to a hydraulic quick hitch that enables the operator to seamlessly swap between buckets, forks, sweepers, snow blowers to name but a few. The versatility is paired with a mechanically controlled joystick for precise operation of lift and tilt cylinders, and super responsive tools with a 63liter-per-minute, 250-bar pressure pump.  

V7/V7-HW have a bucket capacity of 0.7 and 0.8 cubed meters, respectively, and V7-HW has a higher payload on forks (1,900 kilograms) compared to V7’s 1,750 kilograms. The maximum tipping load for V7 is 3,000 kilograms, while V7-HW can tip 3,250 kilograms.


DD130 is the newest addition to the DEVELON dozer lineup. The mid-size 145.8-horsepower machine has more pushing power, superior traction, leading visibility, and advanced technologies for more job-site productivity.

The standard ECO mode can be used for light grading, without sacrificing performance, and reduces daily fuel consumption by up to 5 percent. Auto idle and auto shutdown are standard features to help customers increase fuel efficiency on the job site. 

A blade shake button also comes standard, quickly removing materials stuck to the blade without the need to leave the cab. A standard oscillating serrated track system ensures consistent, stable ground contact for optimal grading performance and comfort. Also available is a blade float function for smooth back grading; the dozer blade moves up and down following the contours of the ground.  

Operators can work more efficiently and reduce the number of passes on each job by lifting, tilting and angling the six-way power-tilt angle blade to move dirt or other materials exactly where they need to go. A two-way mechanical adjustment also allows operators to change the blade pitch from 52 to 58 degrees to control how steeply it bites into the ground. 

DD130 comes standard with an electronically operated tilting cab that provides access to internal components when maintenance is needed. Even with the cab tilted, the dozer can be started while the machine is being diagnosed or repaired. 

An in-line pre-cleaner, also standard, helps improve filter life and is integrated with the air cleaner. It’s also more compact to fit in the smaller engine compartment. Self-cleaning and maintenance-free, the intake system can expel a variety of debris, including mud, snow, leaves, sawdust and chaff. 

Featuring a reduced-wear undercarriage link design, single- and dual-flange rollers help maintain a reliable track system while reducing wear to increase expected component life. Areas of the undercarriage that naturally experience greater wear and tear are easy to access.  

The DD130 dozer comes standard with piping for an optional 3-shank ripper attachment that helps maintain a constant angle to the ground, regardless of the height. The attachment can quickly break up hard, rugged materials prior to grading, and can be used to install erosion control. Also available as an attachment is a towing draw bar. 

All-new mini excavators for tight spaces 

With an updated design and impressive horsepower and weight, the six-metric-ton DX62R-7 and DX63-7 offer standard telematics, powerful digging and lifting, attachment versatility, exceptional operator comfort and durability features.  

Developed to optimize productivity, DX62R-7 and DX63-7 are equipped with features that enable operators to tackle big jobs in challenging environments. Top applications for these new mini excavators include landscaping, construction and underground utilities. 

DX62R-7 has a reduced tail swing design that extends just a few inches beyond the width of the excavator tracks, minimizing the chances of encountering objects or buildings when rotating the machine. The DX63-7 is a conventional tail swing excavator. Both are available in standard or optional long arm configurations, for when more reach and dig depth are needed. 

For enhanced durability, the new -7 Series mini excavators are designed with a width-protected swing frame. Operators can get closer to their work, including being flush against a structure or wall, when offset digging. The excavators’ swing casting and cylinders remain within the track width at full left-swing, making it less likely that operators will damage these components when working in tight or confined areas. An integrated counterweight improves the machines’ lifting capacity and robustness. 

When turning, grading and maneuvering, DX62R-7 and DX63-7 will auto downshift, so they won’t bog down when traveling. As the load decreases, the excavators automatically shift back into high range. 

To reduce noise, improve job-site communications and save fuel, the standard auto idle feature idles the engine automatically when machine functions are not used for a few seconds. When an operator moves the controls, the excavator automatically returns to the previous throttle setting.  

A steel track undercarriage option is available for demolition work or other applications where working around sharp objects could damage the standard rubber tracks. New -7 Series mini excavators offer steel-track and rubber-shoe conversion with minimal modification required. 

For improved control, hydraulic flow is activated through the joystick, not the pedal. One-way hydraulic flow only requires hydraulic power in one direction, for such attachments as hydraulic breakers and plate compactors. Two-way hydraulic flow is ideal for mini excavator attachments that need bidirectional flow, such as hydraulic thumbs (clamps), rippers and grapples.  

To facilitate daily maintenance, the mini excavators offer easy access to filters and oil service points. Centralized boom swing cylinder greasing makes critical maintenance simple. 

A convenient battery disconnect completely disables the battery connection, protecting the battery life during extended storage periods. It can also provide an added measure of security on the job site after working hours.  

In addition, color-coded and labeled wiring and hydraulic hoses enable plug-and-play installation of electrical accessories – including the rotating beacon – and allow quicker, easier electrical troubleshooting.
