Intelligent Business Growth: A Scalable Approach to Adopting Telematics Solutions

Advanced technologies such as telematics continue to proliferate in today’s construction market, and these systems have become more accessible than ever before to contractors of all sizes. Many new machines now come right from the factory with integrated systems that make it easy for business owners to start using this advanced technology, but like anything that is new, it can be a challenge to decide how and when to take advantage of the benefits.

The truth is that these technologies are as simple or as complex as contractors want them to be. The technology itself is simple—what it comes down to is engagement. Adopters of these new technologies won’t see tremendous opportunities by just flipping a switch or ordering a telematics subscription. The real benefits of these systems are seen in how the data is leveraged.

One of the hottest topics right now in the construction industry – or at least the one that sparks the most imagination – is the use of drones on jobsites. While the use of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) may inspire some big thinking for future use, the practical uses of the technology today are already having an impact on the construction industry. Here are three ways that drones are impacting jobsites today, along with a word on certification/legality.

CASE Announces the Availability of a Custom-Fit Waste Handling Guarding/Protection Package for Large 1021G and 1121G Wheel Loaders

CASE Construction Equipment announces the availability of an all-new, custom-fit waste handling guarding/protection package for its 1021G (320 horsepower) and 1121G (347 horsepower) wheel loaders. This size class of loaders is commonly used in waste handling applications, and these CASE models are regularly specified based on the power and performance of the machine, as well as the lower engine exhaust temperatures made possible by the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) emissions technology.

The package was designed in coordination with Craig Manufacturing (New Brunswick, Canada) and the CASE manufacturing plant in Fargo, North Dakota. It is available to order through CASE dealers in the U.S. and Canada, or directly from Craig Manufacturing.

Top 15 Considerations for Maintaining Undercarriage Health & Productivity

Undercarriage maintenance is critical to the overall productivity of a machine. It is the mechanism that gives tracked machines much of their power and stability. It also represents a high percentage of the total operating cost of the machine over its life.

Proper maintenance and operation play a critical role in controlling operating costs over the life of any piece of equipment. Here are the top 15 maintenance and operating considerations that will help you maintain the health and productivity of your tracked machine.

CASE Introduces CX290D Material Handler and CX290D Scrap Loader for Waste and Scrap Applications

CASE Construction Equipment has introduced two all-new crawler excavators to its D Series lineup: the CX290D material handler and CX290D scrap loader. With an operating weight of 72,100 pounds and lift capacities of up to 24,650 pounds, each purpose-built model is designed specifically for use with grapples, magnets, shears and other attachments used in the scrap and waste industries, and offers several key features that fine-tune the machines for material handling and scrap loading applications.

The CX290D material handler features a 177 HP Tier 4 Final engine, a hydraulically controlled elevating cab, longer arm and boom with optimized hydraulic circuits for improved attachment performance and reduced shock in the cab, as well as an electronic sensor-driven anti-interference device that automatically prevents the grapple or other attachments from coming into contact with the machine’s structure during operation. The CX290D also features additional guarding on the cab and undercarriage designed to protect the operator and machine during tough waste and scrap handling applications. The scrap loader version features a goose-neck arm and a straight boom configuration for dedicated scrap loading applications.
