Tuthill Drive Systems to Attend CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show: March 22 - 26, 2011, Las Vegas, NV

Visit Booth #14906 on Thursday, March 24th to Meet Bobby Goodson From the Discovery Channel's "Swamp Loggers"

BROOKSTON, IN--(Marketwire - March 17, 2011) - Tuthill Drive Systems (TDS), a division of Tuthill Corporation, announced that they will exhibit at the Las Vegas CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show March 22-26, 2011. 

Held every three years, the 2011 CONEXPO-CON/AGG is the International gathering place for construction industries. The exposition not only showcases the latest international equipment, products, services and technologies but, new this year, it will introduce 126 educational sessions, as well as a live International Mixer Drive Championship, and several other concurrently-run related conferences. There will be more than 2000 exhibitors, and hundreds of new products at this massive show.

TDS will be demonstrating two work truck retrofit innovations: EZ Trac Hydraulic AWD system, and EZ Crawl, as well as other hydraulic control and axle applications.

The EZ Trac hydraulic drive system can easily be retrofitted to most existing vehicles to expand performance, and provide higher levels of mobility, making it unnecessary to purchase different vehicles to perform a variety of roles. 

EZ Trac replaces the front axle; and is for use on highway and off-road. It:

  • Brings the vehicles to a lower center of gravity;
  • Can be fitted onto most vehicles in one third less time than other systems;
  • Decreases fuel consumption; and
  • Uses a convenient cab-mounted control to engage the system with the flick of a switch.

EZ Crawl system enables work at speeds as low as 0-8kph or 0-5 mph, and it:

  • Installs on the driveline to allow precision slow motion of your vehicle;
  • Saves brake, clutch, and transmission wear and tear;
  • Works in forward and reverse; and
  • Is compact and easy to install on the driveline.
