“Rokbak is seeing huge demand for its RA30 and RA40 articulated haulers in the US,” says Robert Franklin, Rokbak’s director of sales – Americas. “The US is leading articulated hauler demand globally with huge infrastructure spend. There is a lot of construction activity at the moment around house and road building, so we are keen to meet with customers and discuss how the RA30 and RA40 can help with these projects.”
The 28.9tonne maximum payload RA30’s new transmission and high-performance 276kW engine improve fuel efficiency, operator comfort and, with 1880Nm maximum torque, delivers power when operators need it. The new transmission retardation system is combined with exhaust brakes and fully enclosed oil-cooled multidisc brakes to cut operating costs and increase safety and stability. The RA30’s drivetrain is also said to be perfectly balanced to provide excellent performance and productivity in all hauling conditions.
Ground-level test points, a fully tilting cab and an electronically raised hood, make the RA30’s servicing quick and easy – maximising uptime.
Furthermore, Rokbak’s bespoke Haul Track system gives RA30 hauler operators more visibility and control of their machines, with live data viewable on desktop computers or mobile devices. This allows companies to protect their investment even when not on-site.
The 38tonne maximum payload, 331kW high-performance engine equipped RA40 is a heavy-duty articulated hauler said to make light work of large-scale quarry, mine, and construction jobs, offering high capacity and claimed high performance in the toughest conditions.
The RA40 benefits from the same transmission retardation system, fully adaptable drivetrain, easy maintenance, and Haul Track system as its smaller RA30 sibling. The RA40’s planetary gear transmission is said to deliver smooth, efficient gear shifting, cutting fuel costs and increasing operator comfort – even under the most challenging conditions.
With sustainability in mind, the Rokbak event booth materials are all recycled or reusable. Two 40ft customised shipping containers, adorned in the recognisable Rokbak aesthetic, will be used for meeting rooms and product information displays. Following the event, these will be shipped back to Motherwell, Scotland, for reuse at future events.
