Team Rubicon has been working throughout the state since the tornadoes passed, and has four heavy equipment teams deployed along with 80+ volunteers in Mayfield and Dawson Springs, Kentucky. The organization just wrapped its operations in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
The initial priority for the organization at the request of county emergency managers was route clearance and removing debris from properties with compact track loaders and grapple buckets, including equipment provided by CASE and McKeel Equipment. Team Rubicon plans on staying in the area into February to continue with debris removal, demolition work, tree removal, and other volunteer work to benefit local residents.
Construction Equipment’s Annual Report & Forecast Projects “Very Good” Year for 2022.
Each year we are proud to partner with Construction Equipment magazine to present the Annual Report & Forecast. Amid labor shortage, pandemic, supply chain issues and a variety of other region/market-specific issues — more than 2,000 respondents spanning five core demographics within the construction industry came to the consensus that 2022 has the opportunity to be “very good”. According to Construction Equipment Editorial Director Rod Sutton:
“Construction markets improved last year compared to 2020, which is to be expected, but we have not yet returned to the levels reported in 2019. The business rating for 2021 was “good,” up from the “average” recorded for 2020 and matching the forecast made at the end of 2020. The shining star among the vocations we track was nonresidential, reporting a “very good” 2021, up from an “off” 2020. On the other hand, water infrastructure continued to struggle, calling 2021 an “average” year after an “off” 2020. Both vocations expect 2022 to improve. The industry as a whole expects 2022 to be better than 2021, forecasting a “very good” year.”

Specializing in residential, commercial and industrial grading and paving, Bissen Asphalt has served Door County, Wisconsin since 1968.
“My dad started up here in ’68, and he retired in ’04, and I started in ’05 on my own,” says Rick Bissen, second-generation owner of Bissen Asphalt. “I’ve always enjoyed it. There are never two driveways or parking lots that are the same. It’s always different — there’s always a challenge.”
With grading jobs varying between residential driveways to large parking lots and municipal projects, Bissen needed a motor grader that was powerful enough to handle large jobs, but agile enough to get the work done in tighter spaces. Bissen worked with CASE dealer Miller-Bradford & Risberg and decided on a CASE 836C motor grader. “I was looking for a mid-size grader because the larger graders, the road style graders are too big for what we do,” Bissen explains. “And the small ones, they can’t cut. They can’t grade. They can’t carry the material. I was looking for something in the mid-size range with a little more weight, and I do believe I found the perfect machine for it because it has been very awesome for us so far this year.”

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the SV215E and SV217E single-drum vibratory rollers — two new models built for fast and consistent soil compaction on varying lift depths and material types. This is achieved with high centrifugal forces and standard dual amplitude and dual frequency capabilities that allow the operator to dial in compaction performance to each lift. Both rollers operate at 154 horsepower and weigh in at 33,420 and 36,500 pounds, respectively, with centrifugal forces up to 73,063 and 74,861 pounds. Each model is also compatible with ACEforce intelligent compaction technology to further ensure compaction quality, documentation and productivity.
This introduction brings the CASE single-drum soil compaction lineup to five models ranging from 75 to 154 horsepower.
