The Pre- and Post-Operation Equipment Inspection Checklist

 “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” – old Ben Franklin wasn’t a heavy equipment operator or fleet manager, but he might as well have been when he first said those famous words.

The following list leans on Franklin’s wisdom. By taking the following steps each day pre- and post-operation, equipment owners and operators will prevent bad things from happening before they turn into costly downtime events, and will ensure that fleet managers can address concerns in equipment health and upkeep at times throughout the day with the least impact on productivity.

CASE Adds 650M Dozer to M Series Lineup

CASE Construction Equipment announces the 650M—the latest dozer in the M-Series lineup. Replacing the popular 650L, the 74-horsepower dozer has been updated with all of the hallmarks of the CASE M-Series dozers, including a Tier 4 Final FPT engine with Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) technology. The new 650M also features an enhanced undercarriage with improved track frame, idler, sprockets, rollers and extended-life SALT HD tracks, as well as a reinforced mainframe. Like all M-Series dozers, the 650M comes standard with CASE ProCare for added uptime protection.

CASE Launches All-New TV370 Compact Track Loader

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the TV370 compact track loader (CTL), a new 74-horsepower machine that combines a maintenance-free Tier 4 Final solution with the strength and reach of a large-frame CTL. The TV370 provides a 3,700-pound rated operating capacity and a vertical-lift design that makes it ideal for loading trucks, and lifting and placing heavier palletized materials.

“As the CTL market expands, there are no one-size-fits-all solutions,” says John Dotto, brand marketing manager, CASE. The new TV370 gives contractors a 74-horsepower option in a large-frame vertical CTL that provides a high capacity, low ground pressure and stable platform for earthmoving, load and lift applications, and heavy attachments while utilizing a maintenance-free after-treatment system.

Backhoe Maintenance 101

While backhoes are a staple in many large fleets where they are cared for by a full-time fleet manager, they are equally – if not more so – widespread among owner/operators and smaller businesses where the person operating the machine is also the one performing maintenance on it, hauling it, site foreman, lunch gofer, etc.

Even in those large fleets, where they may have “a guy” who performs all the maintenance, there are actions that operators can take in their day-to-day activities that will have a long-term effect on the health and performance of the machine.

Intelligent Business Growth: A Scalable Approach to Adopting Telematics Solutions

Advanced technologies such as telematics continue to proliferate in today’s construction market, and these systems have become more accessible than ever before to contractors of all sizes. Many new machines now come right from the factory with integrated systems that make it easy for business owners to start using this advanced technology, but like anything that is new, it can be a challenge to decide how and when to take advantage of the benefits.

The truth is that these technologies are as simple or as complex as contractors want them to be. The technology itself is simple—what it comes down to is engagement. Adopters of these new technologies won’t see tremendous opportunities by just flipping a switch or ordering a telematics subscription. The real benefits of these systems are seen in how the data is leveraged.
