Both machines received a lot of interest and attention with traffic to the booth coming from around the world. Attendees commented on the build quality, clean component arrangement, easy access to service points and the ergonomic operating environment of both machines.

The 470 is a Tigercat FPT powered Tier 4i 245 kW (328 hp) machine well suited to seismic and pipeline ROW work. It manages soft ground with a 20,9 kPa (3 psi) footprint.

Taunton, Massachusetts based Street Works is the North American distributor for the T726E. The machine provides utility contractors with a quicker, easier, more cost effective and less disruptive method of opening streets for the installation of underground utilities. The T726E cuts asphalt and concrete, trenches to the required depth, pulverizes the material and backfills all in one step, minimizing traffic disruption. It eliminates transportation costs for the broken pavement that must be removed as well as the new backfill that must be brought in. For more information, visit
