Randall Community Water District Adds 18,000 Linear Feet of 24-Inch Water Pipeline

Recently named Rural Water System of the Year by the South Dakota Association of Rural Water Systems, Randall Community Water District serves customers in portions of Aurora, Bon Homme, Brule, Douglas and Hutchinson counties in southeastern South Dakota. It also supplies water to Armour, Corsica, Delmont, Geddes, Lake Andes, Pickstown, Platte, Ravinia, Wagner, Dante, as well as the Yankton Sioux Tribe, Aurora-Brule Rural Water and Davison Rural Water Districts.

Scott Pick, general manager, Randall Community Water District (RCWD), explains the scope of their growing service area. “We serve 2,800 taps—that’d be individual households, rural farms, rural pastures, cabin taps, and we serve every bulk customer,” Pick says. “And we also serve two rural water districts. So in a year’s time, we’ll serve about a billion gallons of water to this area.”

Navigating the Road Ahead

Embracing change in the way we work and learning lessons from recent history can help contractors move forward.

There is no playbook for the current state of the North American construction economy. While much of the industry was deemed essential during initial shutdowns, the long-term effects of social distancing, reduced revenues and consumer confidence on the construction market are uncertain.

CASE Construction Equipment donates Skid Steer to Habitat for Humanity

CASE Construction Equipment has donated a skid steer to Wichita Habitat for Humanity, expanding the manufacturer’s relationship with the international non-profit organization dedicated to improving lives through affordable home ownership. Globally, Habitat for Humanity has helped build, renovate and repair more than 600,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 3 million people worldwide.

“This incredibly versatile machine will add efficiency and safety, and help meet many of the special challenges we face when working on urban infill lots in Wichita,” says Ann Fox, executive director, Wichita Habitat for Humanity. “The skid steer will be used to clear dead trees, concrete and brush from vacant lots. It also will manage dirt work, grade, unload and move construction materials and help set trusses. In the past large groups of volunteers would be assembled to do this work, or equipment was loaned or rented – adding complexity to scheduling.”

Ford Asphalt Company Expands Fleet with Next Generation of CASE Skid Steers

Ford Asphalt Company has provided commercial asphalt and concrete paving services to the St. Louis Metro area since the company was founded in 1975. Over the years, Ford has built a long list of repeat clients that continue to call on the company for quality paving work. In fact, more than 90 percent of the company’s work is repeat business.

Randy White of St. Louis-based CASE dealer Luby Equipment attributes this kind of longevity and success to positive leadership. “I think that it starts with the owner of the company (Bruce Ford) and how they treat their employees, and then that is reflected in their work,” says White. “It’s a people business. And when somebody at the top treats their people well, it’s just completely reflective of their day-to-day operations and work.”

CASE Unveils “Project Zeus” — the all-new 580 EV — the Industry’s First Fully Electric Backhoe Loader

CASE Construction Equipment introduces “Project Zeus” — the 580 EV (Electric Vehicle), the construction industry’s first fully electric backhoe loader. The power and performance of the 580 EV is equivalent to other diesel-powered backhoes in the CASE product line and provides considerably lower daily operating costs while also producing zero emissions — a motivating factor for utility and government contractors incentivized to work with equipment that leverages alternative fuels and lowers emissions.

City governments and municipalities will also benefit from the elimination of emissions for working in urban environments and close to other buildings/people, as well as the reduced noise generated by the equipment.

CASE Debuts the DL550B Compact Dozer Loader

CASE Construction Equipment debuts the all-new DL550B — the industry’s first fully integrated compact dozer loader. Unveiled at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017 as a concept machine named “Project Minotaur”, the DL550B leverages the footprint of a compact track loader (CTL) with the chassis-integrated C-frame and blade of a dozer to create a powerful two-in-one machine for grading and loading applications.

“Our goal with this ‘concept’ was to see it through all the way,” says George MacIntyre, product manager for compact equipment, CASE. “The DL550B is here today as the result of the passion and drive of our engineering, product validation and manufacturing personnel, the real-world operators who spent hundreds of hours running prototypes around the country, as well as the enthusiasm shown by the construction industry in providing feedback to how this machine should perform in the field.”
