The company showed a prototype of its new KH-U line, which will be formally introduced in the third quarter of this year in a range of about 150 to 400 tons. It is hydraulic except for the servo screw drive. A 180-tonner at the show uses 30 gal less oil than a fully hydraulic unit. (847) 520-5314 • www.kawaguchi-usa.com
