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.”

Power, Ease of Transportation & Factory-Fit Machine Control Drive Dozer Performance

CASE 850M dozer works from cut-and-fill to fine grading, and offers benefits — from acquisition to resale — of factory-fit machine control.

Dirt work is in Brian Golden’s blood — and the connection to each generation of his family is present every day at MacMor Construction LLC. Founded in 2013 and named after his daughters — Mackenzie and Morgan — MacMor started as a three-man crew and has grown into a sitework and heavy highway powerhouse with 46 full-time employees.

“My father was a general superintendent back in the day,” explains Golden. “He’s actually still involved today — he’s come on and he runs the field operations for me now. This has been something that’s been in my blood forever, and it’s just, I like the work. I like the equipment, I like dealing with the owners… It’s just what I do.”

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.”

CASE Releases SiteWatch Telematics Platform with New Design, New Dashboard and Simple Navigation

CASE Construction Equipment has released the next generation of its SiteWatch telematics platform with an all-new dashboard, more intuitive navigation and new overview sections that spotlight critical information without requiring the user to search extensively for the data. CASE SiteWatch comes standard for three years on all CASE heavy equipment with ProCare, standard on all CASE backhoes, and is available as an option throughout the entire CASE equipment line.

SiteWatch complies with the Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) 2.0 telematics standard, ensuring that the solution is compatible with mixed fleets.

CASE Unveils “Project Zeus” — the all-new 580 EV — the Industry’s First Fully Electric Backhoe Loader

CASE Construction Equipment introduces “Project Zeus” — the 580 EV (Electric Vehicle), the construction industry’s first fully electric backhoe loader. The power and performance of the 580 EV is equivalent to other diesel-powered backhoes in the CASE product line and provides considerably lower daily operating costs while also producing zero emissions — a motivating factor for utility and government contractors incentivized to work with equipment that leverages alternative fuels and lowers emissions.

City governments and municipalities will also benefit from the elimination of emissions for working in urban environments and close to other buildings/people, as well as the reduced noise generated by the equipment.

CASE Highlights Accessibility and Workforce Inclusivity with Accessible Backhoe Loader at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020

CASE Construction Equipment showcased its new accessible backhoe loader at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, designed to support workforce inclusivity and provide operators of all mobility levels with an opportunity to work in construction equipment operation.

The machine features a purpose-built elevator and accessories that allow the operator to be elevated into the cab and workstation. The operator positions the elevator chair near the ground via a pair of external joysticks in a manner that allows them to easily transfer into the seat. Those same joysticks then raise the operator into the cab where they transition into the backhoe seat. The chair is then tucked away into a position that does not obstruct machine operation.
