TK Backhoe Services: Finding Freedom in the Trenches

The key backhoe features and considerations that every owner operator should have.

Kevin Smith has spent his entire life around backhoes. His father started a small excavating company in 1984 with a single CASE 580D, and Smith spent most of his childhood in and around equipment.

“My dad started a construction company named Casey’s backhoe service — started with one 580D at the time,” says Smith. “[He was] doing pretty much the same thing I do; digging residential services, undergrounds for power and gas, and a lot of commercial and residential work. He took us with him all the time, and it was just natural to be on a machine and around it.”

CASE Precision Grader Blade for Compact Track Loaders

New attachment is compatible with the same 2D and 3D machine control technologies deployed on full-sized motor graders, allowing contractors to transform their CTL into a powerful and compact precision grading solution.

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the all-new CASE Precision Grader Blade, a powerful new attachment for large-frame compact track loaders that delivers the grading performance of a motor grader in a more compact and agile footprint. The CASE Precision Grader Blade is compatible with 2D and 3D machine control solutions — including CASE SiteControl grader solutions powered by Leica Geosystems — to deliver improved productivity, quality and efficiency in fine grading applications.

“This is built for those applications where contractors have always wanted the power and precision of a motor grader, but were unable to justify it based on size, access or cost,” says Jerry Hutkowski, product manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “It takes the large-frame CTL that many contractors already own and turns it into a powerful precision grading solution capable of working on sites where a larger machine isn’t practical or can’t gain access.”

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.”
