McElroy Acrobat 315 fusion machine

The Acrobat 315 from McElroy meets the demand for polypropylene pipe fusion capability up to 12 inches, while offering low- and high-force options for pipe. The compact, lightweight machine functions indoors in tight workspaces and outdoors in the smallest trenches. The machine can be paired with two different hydraulic power units to meet the maximum system pressure desired. There are also two options for carriage pressure configurations: low force, for fusing in low-drag situations or with thinner-walled pipe; and high force, for fusing in high-drag and vertical applications. The facer has a motor and gear reduction, which creates a lightweight, compact assembly that is balanced and it also has a trigger-released lock to secure it in the carriage during use. 918-836-8611; 

Water Cannon 12-volt fluid transfer pump

The EF4000 Everflo 12-volt diaphragm pump from Water Cannon is ideal for fluid transfer applications, agricultural sprayers and spot sprayers. The lightweight and versatile pump comes equipped with a polypropylene housing and valve plate, Viton valves, and a Santoprene diaphragm. It also features a low-demand switch that automatically turns the pump on and off, as flow is required. This feature eliminates the need for a pressure regulator or bypass valve, making it more efficient. Power is only used when the pump flow is in demand. It is self-priming up to 8 feet and has a maximum fluid temperature of 140 degrees F. 800-333-9274;

CASE N Series backhoe loader line

CASE Construction Equipment’s N Series backhoe loaders feature an all-new Pilot Control hydraulic system for optimal precision and smoothness, offering the operator more control in critical applications. Improvements have also been made to the hydraulic system in order to reduce cab noise for greater operator comfort. The fuel economy package is now standard, and includes ECO mode switches for both the loader and backhoe functions. The package also includes the Auto Engine idle feature, which brings the engine RPMs down to idle when the backhoe controls are not used for a set period of time. The engine will also shut down if the machine idles for a set period of time. Externally adjustable Extendahoe wear pads allow for easier maintenance and serviceability while keeping tight tolerances, reducing strain and wear on components. 866-542-2736;
