Golight intros improved Stryker ST Series remote-controlled work lighting

Golight, makers of pan-and-tilt remote-controlled lighting, have introduced a “new and improved” version of its Stryker ST Series of remote-control LED and halogen searchlights.

These new lights are easier to operate and offer the ability to pan and tilt simultaneously. The system also comes with a unit selector that enables a user to operate two Stryker STs individually or in synchronization, using a single remote-control transmitter.

The new design also virtually eliminates remote-control crosstalk when multiple remote-control lamps are being used in close proximity by operating at 2.4 GHz.

New Brokk 70 is the company’s smallest electric demolition robot

Brokk has launched its smallest electric demolition robot, the Brokk 70, which has the same dimensions as its predecessor but twice the power, the company says.

The Brokk 70 weighs 1,235 pounds, and at 35 inches tall and 12.5 inches wide, it can fit through narrow doorways and into tight spaces for interior demolition jobs. It can also be transported by a typical passenger elevator. Its three-part arm extends up 10.5 feet and 8.8 feet horizontally. It replaces the Brokk 60 II.

Bollinger B2 will be the first electric Class 3 truck

How do you stand-out in a growing field of electric pickups?

By basically doing what OEMs have been doing for decades with conventional trucks: offer more capability, more power and a competitive price.

And it looks like Bollinger is on the road to checking off the first two boxes as the Detroit-based startup nears the Sept. 26 reveal for its new four-door electric SUV and pickup, the B1 and B2 respectively.

The “Ultimate” Ford F-150 Raptor is a supercharged custom build with 758 hp

Want more roar and tire-shredding power than a stock Ford Raptor F-150?

Sure you do. PaxPower’s Ultimate Gen 2 Raptor delivers up to 758 horses through a Whipple supercharged 5.0-liter V8 cradled by Raptor-rivaling suspension.

“This truck began as a 2019 F-150 Platinum with a 5.0-liter V8, 10-speed transmission, four-wheel drive, and an electronic-locking differential,” PaxPower says. “The humdrum F-150 body panels and austere F-150 suspension were stripped away for a litany of literally the best Raptor parts available from Ford and the aftermarket.”

Skid Steers vs. Compact Track Loaders: Which versatile machine is right for you?

Much ink has been spilled detailing the pros and cons of skid steers and compact track loaders over the years.

But if arguments over the differences have you tied up in knots, Trevor Chase, product and application specialist at Caterpillar, wants you to know something: Both types of machine dig, grade, move materials, run attachments and load trucks. “Either can be used in any application, and our customers are constantly finding new applications and new ways to use them,” he says.

In other words, it’s not so much which machine has the best specs. It’s how you use it and which machine will make you the most profit. Chase says you can’t go wrong either way. It’s just a matter of making allowances for the relative strengths and weaknesses of each machine.
