first_imgNasco Load Indicators is heading for the Plantworx exhibition for the first time and will be showing the iDig2D system for excavators, for which it is the United Kingdom distributor.The new system will be fitted to a Sany SY26U demonstration machine.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*# Nasco will team up with equipment manufacturer Sany to show the iDig2D system for excavators at next month’s Plantworx eventNasco said the units take under two hours to install and calibrate first time around and are also quickly transferrable between machines by unplugging from a 12v power source and feature a 100 machine and bucket memory.They are also wireless, featuring sensors that are solar powered.Most recently iDig has added dozer blade guidance, described as  ideal for grading off larger areas with the blade.The wireless solar powered sensors are fitted to the boom, dipper and tipping link and on this example on the tiltrotator itself thanks to a bespoke bracket which allows the sensors to be set at 45o angles to each other.The company says the sensors will last up to 100 hours without a charge, but during hours of daylight they are charging all the time anyway.Plantworx, which is co-located with Railworx, takes place in Peterborough in the east of England from June 11 to 13, and there is a preview of the event in the May-June 2019 issue of Demolition & Recycling International.last_img read more

Legislature Cuts Agriculture Funding

first_imgFloyd: “Our leaders really rely on the Cooperative Extension Service to be their point of contact on basically everything. It’s going to require that the community pull together and that the leaders that we have are supported, it’s going to require that families that are part of the program probably take on a little bit of a larger roll. 4-H will continue, it’s an awesome, vibrant program with lots of really creative, capable people in it.” The University of Alaska Fairbanks is cutting staff from the Kenai Peninsula’s Cooperative Extension Service. Jason Floyd was a local 4-H agent… Floyd’s position was part of that 10% cut. He says his duties will now fall to volunteers if the program is to continue… Floyd: “Last year they were saying that UAF alone was running like a $17 million budget deficit, so we’re coming off the back side of two years of deep cuts and all departments have been affected. Not only my own, just across the system. There was a memo that went out saying that there was going to be a review of all programs and to get ready for a 10% cut across the board. center_img FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The state has been ratcheting down non-essential spending for several months, the impact is being felt by local farmers and gardeners. Anyone interested in participating in the Kenai Peninsula’s 4-H program can contact 262-5824 or can stop by the Cooperative Extension Services office on K-Beach Road.last_img read more

Schalke strike late to add to Arsenal’s woes

first_img0Shares0000Arsene Wenger @ Capital SportLONDON, England, October 24 – Schalke piled on the misery for Arsenal as the German side struck twice in the closing stages to clinch a shock 2-0 win in Wednesday’s Champions League clash at the Emirates Stadium.Dutch duo Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Ibrahim Afellay netted in the final 14 minutes to deal another significant blow to Arsene Wenger’s team just days after they crashed to a dismal 1-0 defeat at Premier League strugglers Norwich. Wenger could have few complaints about the result as Arsenal paid the price for a lacklustre display that saw them out-fought and out-thought for long periods.The Gunners’ 100 percent record in Group B was shattered in emphatic fashion and they are now behind Schalke in second place, with tricky trips to the German club and Olympiakos among their remaining three fixtures as they try to edge into the last 16.To make matters worse for Wenger, he is due to attend the club’s annual general meeting on Thursday, with already angry shareholders likely to make their feelings known.France striker Olivier Giroud, replaced by midfielder Francis Coquelin, was the only casualty from the Norwich embarrassment as Wenger opted against making wholesale changes and gave his flops a chance to make amends.How he must have rued that decision after his side were booed off.Watching from the Arsenal directors’ box as he completed his three-match European touchline ban, Wenger cut an anxious figure as Schalke opened up with some slick approach play.After Gervinho squandered an early chance for Arsenal, the Ivorian shooting well wide after good work from Lukas Podolski on the left flank, Schalke had a strong appeal for a penalty controversially turned down.Jefferson Farfan played in Afellay and, seizing on hesitation from Carl Jenkinson, he poked the ball past sliding Arsenal goalkeeper Vito Mannone, who made no contact with the ball as he caught the forward with his arms.Afellay tumbled to the turf and turned to demand a penalty, but Swedish referee Jonas Eriksson responded by booking the Schalke star for diving.Schalke were probing away intelligently around the Arsenal penalty area and Dutch forward Huntelaar should have done better when he tried to steer Atsuto Uchida’s cross goalwards in the final moments of the first half.Schalke’s poor finishing let Arsenal off the hook again early in the second half when Farfan skipped past Andre Santos and cut a pass back to unmarked skipper Benedikt Howedes, who had the goal at his mercy but blazed high over the bar from just 10 yards out.There was alarmingly little response from Wenger’s team, who seemed to lack the belief or the will to wrestle the initiative away from Huub Stevens’ men.It didn’t help that Gervinho repeatedly picked the wrong option whenever he had a chance to drive at Schalke’s defence and the striker earned a booking after throwing himself to the floor in a desperate bid to win a penalty.Gervinho departed to sarcastic cheers from the home fans when Giroud was sent on to replace him with 15 minutes left.But Arsenal’s supporters were venting their frustrations even louder moments later as Huntelaar broke the deadlock in the 76th minute.Huntelaar netted 48 times in 47 games for Schalke last season and he ruthlessly exposed Arsenal’s defensive frailties with a clinical finish after Per Mertesacker and Thomas Vermaelen reacted slowly to Afellay’s looping header.That forced the hosts to throw players forward in search of an equaliser and Schalke picked them off again when Farfan got away down the left and crossed for Afellay to slot home from close-range in the 86th minute.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Are you Arsenal in disguise?! Déjà vu for Alexis

first_imgTransfers Are you Arsenal in disguise?! Sanchez left looking lost again as Man Utd submit to Spurs Kris Voakes Manchester United Correspondent Last updated 1 year ago 06:10 2/1/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(41) Alexis Sanchez Manchester United Getty Images Transfers Manchester United A. Sánchez Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United Tottenham Hotspur Premier League Opinion Alexis Sanchez made his league debut for Manchester United, but it was a familiar tale for the Chilean as his new outfit rolled over It was a different red shirt Alexis Sanchez was wearing but an all-too familiar feeling for the new Manchester United signing on Wednesday.He may have waved goodbye to Arsenal’s inconsistencies, but the Red Devils’ 2-0 defeat at Tottenham was riven with all the problems the Chilean must have he had left behind at Emirates Stadium.On Sanchez’s Premier League debut for the club, United were abject. From the first whistle to the last they were second best, save for a short period in the first half when the new signing was at his most influential. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player United, just like Arsenal so often during his three-and-a-half year spell in north London, left countless gaps for their opponents to exploit and turned in a calamitous defensive showing punctuated by individual error upon individual error.United’s approach was certainly not helped by the concession of a goal inside 10-and-a-half seconds. From the kick-off, Phil Jones failed to win a long ball in the air and, with Chris Smalling failing to react, Christian Eriksen was allowed to ghost into the box untracked by Ashley Young before firing crisply beyond David de Gea.For the 10 minutes or so which followed, it appeared more than possible that United would work their way back into the game. With Sanchez prevalent and Romelu Lukaku looking hungry, they had Spurs back-pedalling regularly in a bid to immediately peg back the deficit. Yet that initial surge died a very speedy death and for the remainder of the game it was really just a question of how many goals Spurs would win by.United’s night was summed up perfectly by the second goal, with Kieran Trippier whipping a cross in towards the near post which somehow caught Phil Jones off balance. The England centre-back went at the ball with his wrong foot and sent it flying past De Gea.For Sanchez, it was a 90-minute struggle. Having started on the left he was unable to do enough to justify the redeployment of Anthony Martial to the right-hand side.But even after a half-time switch which saw Sanchez moved to the centre and the Frenchman reverted back to his favoured left, United just couldn’t give their forward line the quality of possession they craved.Too often, Spurs had extra numbers in the United half, and the visitors were always chasing the game as a result.Paul Pogba Manchester UnitedThe second-half madness which saw Paul Pogba replaced in a tactical switch for the first time in a Manchester United shirt only for his replacement, Marouane Fellaini, to be then hauled off within eight minutes in favour of Ander Herrera only served to underline just how badly the night had gone for Jose Mourinho and his side.Spurs looked better prepared, more confident, and more in tune with each other as a team than United did at any point in the game. It is an assessment we have so often seen of Arsenal in the last three-and-a-half years, but this was not the way Sanchez was hoping to be made to feel at home.United will doubtless have better days with Sanchez in their side, and his transfer does not become a bad one on the back of one result alone. But this was a reminder that the transformation of Manchester United is still some way from completion.last_img read more
