CASE and CNH Industrial Donate Equipment for 2017 Victory Garden Blitz in Milwaukee, Wis.

CASE Construction Equipment and CNH Industrial donated the use of a skid steer to the 9th Annual Victory Garden Blitz, located in the Greater Milwaukee area. This year, over 300 volunteers installed 514 gardens – achieving a grand total of more than 3,500 gardens for communities throughout Milwaukee since the project’s inception.

Beginning with a group of friends in 2009—who installed 35 raised-bed gardens in a single day—Victory Garden Initiative’s mission focuses on empowering communities to grow their own food and re-establish the relationship between human and food ecology. In 2016, the Initiative built a record-breaking 555 gardens in fifteen days.

Site Intelligence Takes Flight

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.

Cadillac Heavy Equipment Services Excels at Excavation on “The Rock”

By Andrew Dargatz, brand marketing manager, CASE Construction Equipment

Living on an island province nicknamed “The Rock” doesn’t conjure up images of easy digging.  It also drives heavy earthmoving contractors to consider larger equipment to tackle work that may be accomplished by smaller machines in simpler environments.

Miller-Bradford & Risberg Donates Equipment to Team Rubicon for Site Development Project at Boy Scouts of America’s Camp Long Lake

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Miller-Bradford & Risberg donated the use of an excavator and a skid steer to Team Rubicon for a service project and training session May 6-7, 2017 at the Boy Scouts of America’s Camp Long Lake in St. Cloud, Wisconsin.

The site is operated by the Potowatomi Area Council, Boy Scouts of America. The project featured Team Rubicon heavy equipment operators and sawyer teams training with equipment and chainsaws to sharpen their skills for use on future disaster relief deployments. The group forested and cleared a new 40,000-square-foot pad at the camp that will serve as the base area for a future all-terrain vehicle program.

On Working with Homeowners

Working for private homeowners requires a different level of one-on-one attention than working for other contractors or on larger commercial/industrial projects.

The homeowner (or prospective homeowner for residential contractors) has an intense personal connection to the project, the property, and how their money is being spent to complete the work. There’s also a level of communication and detail that needs to be maintained throughout the entire process – some of the things that a contractor may take for granted when working for another contractor or industrial developer are not always given or understood by a homeowner.

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.

CASE Introduces the DL450 – the Industry’s First-Ever Fully Integrated Compact Dozer Loader

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the DL450 compact dozer loader – AKA “Project Minotaur” – a first-of-its-kind fully integrated design that matches the best operating characteristics of a compact track loader (CTL) with a crawler dozer. A launch/production date for the machine has not been confirmed, but CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017 represents a new and advanced phase in product development with extensive voice of customer work being conducted at the show and with top contractors.

“In 1957, we changed the industry with the introduction of the first-ever fully integrated backhoe loader,” says Scott Harris, vice president – North America, CASE Construction Equipment. “The DL450 compact dozer loader represents that same forward-thinking and practical innovation, but in an exciting new platform that provides a real benefit to contractors – from landscapers looking to step up their grading and earthmoving game, to residential and commercial contractors looking for versatility and dual-function in a single footprint.”

CASE Issues Call for Entries for 2017 Dire States Equipment Grant

CASE Construction Equipment has issued a call for entries for their 2017 Dire States Equipment Grant. Beginning in 2016, this is the second time that CASE has offered the grant, which provides one winning community with $25,000 in free equipment use to help offset the costs of building or repairing a critical piece of local infrastructure. Representatives of municipal, county and other local governments are eligible to apply for the grant. Entrants will be asked to describe the project and provide a detailed assessment of how that local piece of infrastructure will benefit the community.

The 2016 Dire States Equipment Grant was awarded to the Tioga County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) in Tioga County, New York. The SWCD will use the grant to supplement their Environmentally Sensitive Stream Maintenance Program to mitigate damages from flooding events, which have had considerable impact on the local infrastructure and community in recent years.

CASE Announces Tier 4 Final Double Drum Vibratory Asphalt Rollers

CASE Construction Equipment introduces two new double drum asphalt rollers—the DV209D and DV210D. The new vibratory asphalt rollers deliver 100 percent tractive effort and reliable compaction performance due to a balanced drum design and a variety of standard features, including automatic vibration control, crab steering, an oscillating articulated roller joint and a pressurized triple-filtration water system. An available high-frequency option allows for frequencies up to 4,020 vpm (67 Hz) for greater control of compaction performance based on the thickness and density requirements of each lift. A combination option is also available for both models, featuring a vibratory front roller and rear pneumatic tires that provide a smooth surface finish.

The DV209D and DV210D also feature a fully adjustable and intuitive operator environment with a steering wheel instrument cluster and digital display.
