Sept. 15, 2011, Two Harbors, MN –
Northshore Manufacturing, home of Builtrite branded products, has announced
enhancements made to one of its most popular stationary electric material
handlers, the model 2100-SE.
The enhancements include:
The 2100-SE is extremely versatile in a
number of material handling applications such as handling municipal solid
waste, loading and tamping applications, scrap handling, wood handling, etc. A
wide range of options is available, including various boom configurations,
allowing it to handle hanging or wristing type attachments, boom lengths, cab
risers, catwalks, remote operator’s station, remote power unit placement, etc.
The cost of operation (electric power versus diesel, maintenance, and
downtime), as compared to a diesel powered machine, can be up to 60% less, with
the added benefit of operating quieter and without exhaust gases.
A new cab, featuring better visibility,
more room, and more powerful heater/air conditioning system;
A modular power unit capable of being
machine mounted or floor mounted depending upon the application and customer’s
preference. Large access doors allow for excellent accessibility;
A three-fold increase in hydraulic oil
cooling capability, using a 20-hp motor, allows the loader to work more
efficiently in hotter climates and reduces premature cylinder seal, gasket,
hose, and other rubber component wear;
A more energy efficient, 75-hp electric
