CASE Receives Four 2019 Top 100 Awards from Construction Equipment Magazine

CASE Construction Equipment had four new products/product groups—the CASE DV Series small-frame vibratory rollers, N Series backhoes, 2050M dozer landfill configuration and Laser Grading Box attachment—named to Construction Equipment’s 2019 Top 100 New Products list.

Compiled based on editors’ reviews and nominations, the Top 100 awards are designed to recognize the top equipment of the year based on advances in technology, new product lines, significant improvements to existing products and increasing competition in the field.

Miller-Bradford & Risberg Supports Team Rubicon in Response to Severe Storm Damage in Northeast Wisconsin

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Miller-Bradford & Risberg supported Team Rubicon’s second wave of response to severe storms that originally hit the area in July 2019, including five tornadoes, that caused severe damage across Langlade and Oconto Counties in northeast Wisconsin.

The severe storms and tornadoes uprooted or snapped tens of thousands of trees, devastating wide swaths of forest land. Areas sustaining significant damage included recreational areas such as ATV and snowmobile trails that are important to the tourism economy in the area — especially throughout the winter. During the 10-day operation, 76 Team Rubicon volunteers worked to clear dozens of miles of recreational trails, many of which were completely unpassable.

Making a Difference with Dozers

The construction equipment industry is seeing innovative new developments across all categories that are changing the way we work, and crawler dozers—once considered one of the more difficult machines to master—have now become considerably simpler to operate.

The key trends that are driving innovation in the crawler dozer category are centered primarily around operator experience—and this goes beyond comfortable cabs and easy-to-use controls.

CASE Upgrades F Series Compact Wheel Loaders with Electro-hydraulic Controls

CASE Construction Equipment has upgraded its F Series compact wheel loader lineup with new adjustable electro-hydraulic controls. This added functionality allows operators to adjust the responsiveness of the lift and tilt bucket functions for improved control and efficiency on the jobsite.

Lift and tilt settings can now be adjusted with two new 3-way rocker switches (high, medium, low) mounted on the side console, allowing operators to adjust the responsiveness of the loader lift arms independently of the attachment tilt functions. These new programmable settings allow operators to program the machine’s response based on their personal preferences, or to better meet the demands of the job at hand.

Tasman Geosciences Grows Earthmoving Division to Support Environmental Abatement, Remediation Services

Over the last decade, Tasman Geosciences has evolved its business in environmental consulting, construction, demolition and abatement services. Specifically, the new earthmoving division within Tasman’s construction group is working to deliver environmentally conscious remediation services through excavation, oftentimes on delicate sites with existing infrastructure.

Derek Palmer, the construction operations manager who leads the Tasman excavation unit, said the team is typically operating on sites where visibility, attention to detail and precision run paramount to speed and productivity.

Chapin, South Carolina Wins 2019 Dire States Grant for East Chapin Sewer Force Main Project

CASE Construction Equipment has awarded the $25,000 Dire States Equipment Grant to Chapin, South Carolina for the East Chapin Sewer Force Main Project. The project will install a new parallel force main to relieve pressures in the service area on the existing sewer force main and pump stations. The additional force main will provide capacity to reroute sewer flow to significantly reduce the likelihood of future overflows that may affect the drinking water of approximately 130,000 drinking water customers in area.

The CASE Dire States Grant gives Chapin $25,000 in free equipment rental for the project through local CASE dealer Hills Machinery. The project will also mitigate other storm- and wastewater challenges for the municipality, and create more capacity for additional business development in the town. Bidding on the project will take place in the next few months, with work expected to begin later in 2019.

CASE Introduces New Vibratory Rollers

CASE Construction Equipment has introduced the latest additions to the DV Series of vibratory rollers. With models available in both double drum and combination (front drum with rear pneumatic tires) configurations, these rollers are powerful, easy to transport and nimble enough to work in a variety of residential and commercial construction applications where the operator may encounter tight quarters, curbs, structures and other obstacles.

Designed with a high curb clearance, no overhangs and drum widths of 51.2- (DV36D, DV45CD) and 54.3- (DV45D) inches, these new roller models are ideal for walkways, residential driveways, bike paths, tennis courts, parking lots and other small- to mid-size compaction applications.

Creative, Customized Financing Plans Provide Operators With Cash Flow Flexibility

The construction market has rebounded in recent years, with continued strength projected through 2019 (as highlighted in the 2019 Annual Report & Forecast). Many fleet owners and managers have re-invested in their fleets to make up for previous years of extending life cycles as long as they could. Many others remain in a position today where their fleet requires upgrading/modernization — and we’re at an inflection point with technology where newer/current machines provide significant operational and cost savings advantages over machines that may be five or 10 years older.

On top of having equipment with leading technology, however, is the ability to maintain cash flow that allows for investment and re-investment into other areas of an operation. Whether that’s in people, marketing, or strategy development, those factors have an impact on whether companies thrive.

CASE Launches New Series of Small-Frame Vibratory Rollers

CASE Construction Equipment has announced a new series of small-frame vibratory rollers. Available in both double drum and combination (front drum with rear pneumatic tires) configurations, these compact rollers are easy to transport and are ideal for working in residential and commercial construction applications where the operator may encounter tight quarters, curbs, structures and other obstacles.

Designed with a high curb clearance, no overhangs and a narrow drum width of 37 inches, these compact DV Series rollers are ideal for walkways, residential driveways, bike paths, tennis courts, small parking lots and other small- to mid-size compaction applications. The drums can be offset to further improve accessibility, and to improve performance during turns. Visibility is improved with excellent sight lines and an adjustable work station that allows the operator to get the best vantage point down to the drums.  

2019 Annual Report & Forecast Provides Optimism

CASE partners each year with Construction Equipment magazine to produce the Annual Report & Forecast, a quick recap of the year before and an in-depth look into industry confidence and intention heading into the new year. As Construction Equipment Editorial Director Rod Sutton comments in his opening article of the 2019 report, the industry anticipates positive movement in the new year.

“Transportation, nonresidential, and fleet managers scored last year as “very good,” and each forecast the same for 2019. The momentum begun in 2017 appears to be sustainable in these vocations. Home building and water infrastructure also expect 2019 to perform better, after each fell short of expectations in 2018. Respondents in the home building arena expect to move into “very good” territory this year; those in the water industry expect to move from an “average” 2018 to a “good” 2019.”
