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.

OCT Equipment Donates CTL and Excavator to Home Demolition for Korean War Veteran

CASE Construction Equipment dealer OCT Equipment donated the use of a compact track loader and excavator to Team Rubicon for the free demolition of a Korean War veteran’s house that was deemed uninhabitable. The initiative is led by Honoring America’s Warriors and will lead to the construction of a brand new home for Harold Edwards and his wife, Minnie, through a partnership with Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity.

Edwards served in Korea from 1950 to 1953 in the 1st Marine Division. 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.

The new CASE pushers are also compatible with competitive equipment and allow a snow removal contractor to standardize on a single type/style of pusher across their fleet.

EZ-EH Controls Provide Advantages in Skid Steer Operation

You grew up on mechanical controls. We all did, and old habits die hard. Skid steer technology, however, has evolved – and EZ-EH (electro-hydraulic) controls are available on the entire line of CASE Alpha Series skid steer loaders. These systems use electronics and hydraulics to control machine function, and allow for new and more intuitive ways to dial in skid steer performance to the preference of the operator. Here are a few ways that electro-hydraulic controls help improve operator performance:
