Vehicles on TeleMasters can carry heavy loads in rugged terrain. Continental says it made the tires with “a special three-layer rubber construction that ensures a low heat buildup.” The tires have non-directional tread patterns that allow forward and reverse on hard and loose surfaces, providing stability and a smoother ride.
Calling it a flat-proof solution, Continental says the solid tire means no need for pressure checks or filling the tire with polyurethane.
California based Mec Aerial Work Platforms has restructured its international operations following the departure of Jim Tolle, who has started his new venture GMG.
Pat Witte vice president of business development will assume all responsibility for international sales and plans to renew Mec’s international sales strategy and operations, building a new international sales team.
Using a 2017 F-150 as its base, the F-150 Super Snake is powered by a Ford 5-liter V8 with a supercharger delivering 750 horsepower—300 more than the F-150 Raptor. Shelby also used the Super Snake Mustang as a reference in sharpening the handling of the F-150’s independent suspension.
Shelby tweaked the look of the F-150 as well, outfitting it with a new hood, rockers, spoilers, grille, rear bumper panel and tonneau cover. The truck also features Super Snake striping, badging and interior accents.
Two men were thrown from what appears to be an older model Snorkel AWP when it collapsed to the ground, said Port Hope Police. The men were doing restoration work on the building, police said. The AWP was extended to approximately 40 feet when it collapsed, police said.
A 34-year-old man and a 31-year-old man were taken to hospital by ambulance. The 34-year-old man was immediately airlifted to Toronto with serious head injuries. Ministry of Labour investigators attended the scene and are continuing the investigation to determine the cause of the accident, police said.
Joseph Volpe, who’s worked as a master rigger since 1997, allegedly misjudged the crane’s load, failed to notify the Department of Buildings of the accident and left the scene, city officials confirmed on Tuesday. The DOB quietly suspended both of Volpe’s licenses — for master rigger and hoisting machine operator — in March, a few weeks after the fatal accident. A call to Volpe’s union-affiliated business, JV Trucking and Rigging, was not immediately returned.
With all the false starts that Ballard Power Systems Inc. has had over the years, I understand how investors can be pretty skeptical about the possibility of the company actually making money off of its revolutionary fuel cell technology. There are different reasons, however, why I believe investors can be optimistic about the future of this company.
“A nano solution is needed to mass-produce resource-efficient catalysts for fuel cells. With our method, only one tenth as much platinum is needed for the most demanding reactions. This can reduce the amount of platinum required for a fuel cell by about 70 per cent”, says Björn Wickman, researcher at the Department of Physics at Chalmers University of Technology.
Physicists at the University of Houston have discovered a way to make the process more efficient for little cost. Their catalyst, made from cheap nickel instead of the pricey precious metals used today, helps one part of the reaction happen more easily. And if it is eventually used in production, it could mean hydrogen fuel that costs significantly less than it does today.
