CASE Construction Equipment Announces SiteControl CoPilot System for Select M-Series Dozers

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the all-new SiteControl CoPilot powered by Leica Geosystems. Available factory-installed or as a retrofit on select CASE M Series dozers, the CoPilot system bridges the gap between automatic and indicate-only systems and offers a cost-effective entry into 2D and 3D machine control technology.

The CASE SiteControl CoPilot system is the result of a global partnership with Leica Geosystems, and is comprised of an inertial measurement unit, wiring harness and in-cab display. The easy-to-use system allows operators to set a desired slope/grade reference, and automatically holds that slope/grade without the need for lasers, masts or GPS—regardless of underfoot conditions—enabling both seasoned and less-experienced operators to easily achieve and maintain a smooth surface, slope or grade throughout the work area.

Southeastern Equipment Donates CTLs to Team Rubicon for Neighborhood Revitalization Project in Detroit

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Southeastern Equipment Co.

Quincy Township, Pennsylvania Wins 2017 Dire States Grant for Rehab of Old Forge Bridge

CASE Construction Equipment has awarded the $25,000 Dire States Equipment Grant to Quincy Township, Pennsylvania for replacement/repair work on the Old Forge Bridge. The bridge weight limits have been lowered each of the last five years due to its deteriorating condition, risking access to residents, as well as fire departments, ambulances, police and school busses. The neighboring region of South Mountain also hosts a number of camps and facilities – including a Pennsylvania National Guard training center – that relies on access to the region from the bridge.

The 2017 grant, launched at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2017, will provide the township with $25,000 in free equipment rental for the project through CASE dealer Groff Tractor.

CASE Dealer Robert Childs Inc. Donates Equipment for Key Restoration Projects in Cape Cod

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Robert Childs Inc. donated the use of five CASE machines to Team Rubicon to be used for land-clearing and grasslands restoration in the Coonamessett Reservation fields in Hatchville, Mass. The donated equipment—two excavators; a CX80C and CX130C, and three skid steers; an SV185, SR270 and SV300—were used to help clear the land of overgrown invasive brush that had overtaken the native sandplain grassland.

Restoring the Native Habitat
Located within the Mashpee National Wildlife Refuge, the land is managed as part of the refuge and in alignment with refuge goals by the nonprofit Falmouth Conservation Commission. The Coonamessett Inn operated on the land in the 1950s. Eventually, it was demolished, and the land has been managed for conservation. The native sandplain grasslands—home to a variety of birds, butterflies and other wildlife, as well as several endangered species—are critical to the Cape Cod ecosystem. But habitat has dwindled as the area has continued to develop.
