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.

JWH Equipment Supports Team Rubicon on Operation Iron Bird

Veteran-led disaster relief organization Team Rubicon deployed its heavy equipment operators to Hattiesburg, Mississippi February 2-10, 2017 to assist in demolishing damaged houses and clearing debris caused by the EF3 tornado that hit the city on January 21, 2017. CASE dealer JWH Equipment (Jackson, Mississippi) supplied an excavator and compact track loader for Team Rubicon’s Operation Iron Bird, which demolished 17 houses and cleared an additional 13 properties of tornado debris for free.

“Our goal while we’re out here as volunteers is to help as many people as we can, to get them to the point where they can rebuild their properties,” says Victor Civitillo, a certified heavy equipment instructor and operator with Team Rubicon who managed the heavy equipment deployment. “Having the CASE heavy equipment here means we can accomplish in two hours what would normally take a full day for a crew working with hand tools. So together we can help families get back on their feet faster, and then the whole community and the local economy recover faster.”

Tips for Staying Ahead of the Competition on Estimating and Bidding Earthmoving Projects

No two earthmoving jobs are alike. The gained wisdom of you and your colleagues, the technological advances in today’s equipment, and your confidence in your workforce can all help you properly bid and secure new work. It’s a tricky process – how do you come in low enough to win the bid but also high enough to ensure profitability in the job? We all love what we do, but let’s not kid ourselves – we’re in this to make money.

What follows are a few tips that I’ve picked up in more than 30 years of working as a contractor and a few years now working as a product promotions specialist with CASE, where I work with contractors from all over the world at the world class Tomahawk Customer Center. It may be as simple as moving dirt, but it’s the attention to detail that will keep you ahead of the competition.

The Case for Equipment Over Trucks in Snow Removal Applications

The snow removal industry is becoming more competitive each year. As that happens, the margin of error between profitability and survival is slim. For large commercial snow removal contractors, the shift from trucks and plows to construction equipmentskid steers, compact track loaders, wheel loaders, compact wheel loaders, and backhoes – provides significant operational advantages.

Is it time for you to add more equipment and give the pickup and plow a rest? Here are eight reasons to consider adding more iron to your snow removal fleet:

Go with the Flow: A Primer in Skid Steer Hydraulics

Rarely does a skid steer owner use only a bucket. The auxiliary hydraulic capabilities of a skid steer are one of the features that make it extremely versatile, and having a good understanding of the output you will need is important when you spec a machine. How much power is too much power, and how much power do your attachments need? In this article we’ll look at common hydraulic systems and how each matches up to attachment demand. Just working with a bucket and pallet forks? No problem. Running snow throwers and wood chippers? You’re going to need a higher flow.

Attachments drive the decision
