  • Patent number: 10308111
    Abstract: A self-propelled construction machine, comprises a machine frame, on which a working unit is arranged, and comprises a drive unit for driving the working unit. An additive, in particular a urea solution for operating an exhaust gas treatment system, is provided in an operating material tank which is integrated in the fuel tank or water tank of the construction machine. The integration of the operating material tank in the fuel tank or water tank does not necessitate any modifications to the machine frame. The dimensions of the construction machine can also remain unchanged, since the fuel tank does not take up any extra space on the machine frame if the dimensions of the fuel tank or water tank are maintained.

  • Patent number: 10094079
    Abstract: The invention relates to a positioning arrangement for fitting an interchangeable milling assembly of a preset working width below the vertically adjustable chassis of a road milling machine, which chassis is carried on track-laying units. A vehicle carried on a plurality of wheels has a unit for receiving the milling assembly. The positioning arrangement has a handling chassis which can be lengthened in the longitudinal direction and to which the wheels are fixed. In a lowered position, the positioning arrangement, with the milling assembly resting on it, can be driven below the chassis of the road milling machine. In a raised position, the milling assembly can be fitted to the road milling machine.

  • Patent number: 9856613
    Abstract: The road milling machine according to the invention comprises a cleaning device which has a cleaning unit arranged in front of the work roller in the working direction. The cleaning unit ensures that the surface of the terrain over which the wheels or running gears travel is clear of material. As a result, an optimum milling result is always achieved. The invention takes effect in particular when using small millers which have at least one rear wheel or running gear which can be moved into an inner working position in relation to a longitudinal side of the machine frame and into an outer working position in relation to a longitudinal side of the machine frame. In this preferred embodiment, the cleaning device comprises a pivot device which is designed in such a way that the cleaning unit can be moved into an inner working position in relation to a longitudinal side of the machine frame and into an outer working position in relation to a longitudinal side of the machine frame.
