Tales From Brazil: “We Get Stuff Done”

Barrett’s Excavating of Brazil, Indiana has been in the business for more than 27 years. Brad Barrett started out doing septic work for his father and built up his service offerings over the years to include water, sewer, demolition, grading, site-clearing and more. “My dad was a coal miner,” says Barrett. “I ran the drag line where he worked—when I was 15—and we bought a septic tank truck together and went from there.”

His equipment fleet grew over the years, starting with the septic tank truck, then moving on to a dozer and other equipment for dirt work. “I bought a dozer, and I just kind of added stuff,” he explains. “I did a lot of water utilities for city waters and sewers — a lot of water leaks, sewer line repairs, that kind of stuff.”

CASE Delivers Industry’s First Electric Backhoe Loaders to Utilities in New York

The construction industry’s first designed and commercially developed electric backhoe loaders — two CASE 580 EV backhoes from CASE Construction Equipment — have been delivered and are currently working with utilities in New York. New York State Gas & Electric (NYSEG) and Rochester Gas & Electric (RG&E), AVANGRID, Inc. subsidiaries will debut its first electric backhoe this week at a special event in New York, and National Grid took delivery of its first electric backhoe earlier this year. The backhoes require no diesel and produce zero emissions — all while providing the power and performance associated with diesel-powered equipment.

CASE announced the development of the electric backhoe in March of 2020, and has been working with each utility on refining the machines ahead of final delivery and field deployment. Electrification of the CASE 580 EV was performed in conjunction with New York companies Green Machine Equipment, Inc. and Moog Inc. Monroe Tractor in New York will work with each utility and the integration partners to support the equipment in the field.
