15 TECH FOCUS: HYUNDAI'S AAVM

11

Among the leading causes of injury and death in construction and allied industries - including the
stone, sand and gravel business - "struck by an object" is second only to falls. To enhance jobsite
safety while increasing operator awareness and productivity, Hyundai Construction Equipment
Americas, Inc., in 2015 introduced its exclusive All-Around View Monitoring (AAVM) and Intelligent
Moving Object Detection (IMOD) systems as available technology for its HX excavator product line.

17 2019 NSSGA ANNUAL CONVENTION PREVIEW

Start your engines for NSSGA's Annual Convention and AGG1 in Indianapolis. The aggregates
industry's top exposition and educational event, AGG1 Academy & Expo, is revving up for its 2019
show in Indianapolis, Feb. 12-14, at the Indiana Convention Center, and it has already surpassed
previous show records.

22 2019 AGG1 ACADEMY & EXPO

The AGG1 Academy is the one place to go to learn virtually every aspect of the aggregates industry.

42 TECH FOCUS: CATERPILLAR'S NEXT GENERATION

The cost of operating seems to only go in one direction-up. Tight margins and tough competition
leave little room for waste or inefficiency. Without experienced operators it's tough to avoid
mistakes and rework that drive added costs. Next Generation Cat® Excavators-the Cat 330 and
336-come standard with Cat Payload onboard measurement technology, so you can keep loading as
efficient as possible.

43 WITHSTANDING EXTREME WEAR IN BULK
MATERIAL HANDLING EQUIPMENT

Urethane provides greater wear resistance than steel or
rubber, with better cleanability, and can be customized
to meet individual specifications.

46 NSSGA PHOTO CONTEST

Check out many of the photos submitted
to the 2018 contest.
