New Dozer and Excavator Models Deliver Speed and Fuel Efficiency for KO Pipeline

One of the challenges for any new company is how to put capital equipment in place to get that very first job done. Kim Ozalas, owner and operator of KO Pipeline, was no different as her company embarked on its first project in 2014. KO Pipeline has kept busy in its first two seasons of work based out of Cambridge, Ohio – and much of the steel and horsepower required to get the job done has come from Todd Clipner and Southeastern Equipment (also headquartered in Cambridge).

“When I came to Cambridge to start my first jobs here, I didn’t even have a shovel,” says Ozalas. “Southeastern let our people come down, get on the machines, adjusting the equipment to the operator. [Input from the] CASE rep is common. Sitting down with them, talking with them, getting their ideas. It really gives people buy in. When you get buy in, then it all works out.”
