Southeastern Equipment Donates CTLs to Team Rubicon for Neighborhood Revitalization Project in Detroit

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Southeastern Equipment Co. Inc. donated the use of two TR310 compact track loaders with grapple buckets to Team Rubicon for Operation Joe Louis—an urban blight response project in Detroit, Michigan. Team Rubicon has worked in partnership with the City of Detroit’s Motor City Make-Over event—an annual citywide volunteer cleanup and beautification initiative—and Herman Kiefer Development LLC, to clean up the Herman Kiefer Hospital complex and neighborhood by conducting damage assessments, debris management and home repairs in the area.

Team Rubicon brought in over 100 volunteers and training personnel from around the U.S. to assist local residents in the cleanup effort of their properties, as well as any vacant or abandoned properties adjacent to occupied structures. The CASE TR310 CTLs were used in debris management initiatives during the project, including the removal of fallen or dangerous trees, trash, overgrowth and the consolidation of debris and refuse, as well as the demolition of several garages and other outbuildings.

Selecting a Broom/Sweeper Attachment

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued new rules related to exposure to silica dust on construction sites – those rules went into effect on June 23, 2016, and compliance for construction sites is required by June 23, 2017. These rules apply to any site that will “drill, cut, crush, or grind silica-containing materials such as concrete and stone” .

Other cities, sites and developers have their own rules about airborne particulate on the jobsite – rules that may disqualify contractors from participating if they don’t engage in approved dust mitigation practices.

Scotty Deatherage, the director of Honoring America’s Warriors, became aware of Edwards’ situation and assembled a coalition of veteran organizations and construction companies to do the work. Midwest Wrecking, Northeast Landfill and McRoof OKC have provided additional support for the project.

CASE Introduces New Sectional Snow Pushers

CASE Construction Equipment has introduced a new line of six heavy- and light-duty sectional snow pushers compatible with both current and older model wheel loaders, skid steers, compact track loaders and backhoes. The independent moldboard sections move independently, allowing each section to shift up and down in response to uneven pavement or obstacles. The light-duty models, designed for compact equipment and backhoes, feature pushers up to 13-feet wide. The heavy-duty line offers pushers up to 17-feet wide for full-sized wheel loaders.
