Airless Radial Tires Extend Tire Life, Improve Operator Comfort for La Belle Dairy

La Belle Dairy (La Belle, Missouri) relies on a fleet of skid steer loaders for a variety of tasks around the farm — from cleaning out bedding and pushing feed, to construction projects and site improvement. These machines are the ultimate utility player on the farm — capable of handling and quickly switching between numerous attachments.

“We have two SR210s, and four SV175s. And each one of those is designated for a different part of our dairy applications,” says Luman Wilkerson, operations manager, La Belle Dairy. “One 210 we use to clean out the mangers in the morning, to clean out the feed that the cows don’t eat. Then we have the other one fill in or do a lot of cleanup, or move palettes and materials around. And then the [SV175s] we use for bedding and cleaning the walkways for the cows.”

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.”

CASE TV370 Compact Track Loader Named to Construction Equipment Top 100

Construction Equipment magazine named the CASE Construction Equipment TV370 compact track loader to its list of Top 100 new products for 2018. The annual awards are selected by Construction Equipment editors as they take into consideration four key criteria related to new product introductions for the last year: “an advancement in technology, a new product line, offers significant improvements to existing products, or increases competition in its field.”

The CASE TV370 is a 74-horsepower compact track loader 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 (50 percent tipping weight) and a vertical-lift design that makes it ideal for loading trucks, and lifting and placing heavier palletized materials.

Anatomy of an Independent Equipment Rental Fleet

John Sherlock’s story is one of evolution. Sherlock owns Sherlock Equipment in Bremerton, Washington – serving the Kitsap Peninsula with compact track loaders, mini excavators — and growing now to include dozers, mid-sized excavators and backhoes. Sherlock himself was a contractor until 2011, when he transitioned into short line equipment sales and, eventually, equipment rental in 2014.

“We saw the need for good quality rental equipment in the area, and we try to supply our customers with the best equipment we can get,” says Sherlock.

CASE, Luby Equipment Support Team Rubicon in Training/Prairie Mitigation Project

CASE Construction Equipment, and heavy equipment dealer Luby Equipment, provided training support and donated the use of skid steers, compact track loaders and excavators to Team Rubicon for a combination training/service project in Van Buren County, Iowa. “Operation Forgotten Villages” performed prairie mitigation and long-term trail recovery work in Bentonsport, Iowa, designed to remove invasive growth and return the prairie to native grasses in support of local wildlife.

Team Rubicon volunteers cleared 14 acres of trees, and more than 20,000 cubic feet of invasive vegetation, to return the prairie back to its natural state. The effort is estimated to have saved the local community more than $60,000, and gave Team Rubicon heavy equipment operators valuable stick time to train for disasters, such as Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael.

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the all-new TV450 compact track loader (CTL), a new 10,610-pound vertical-lift machine with a rated operating capacity of 4,500 pounds at 50 percent tipping load. The newest and largest CASE CTL ever built features an industry leading 9,188 pounds of breakout force, and optional high-flow (3,450 psi at 39.5 gpm) and enhanced high-flow (4,000 psi at 35 gpm) hydraulics for high-power attachments such as mulching heads, stump grinders and cold planers.

“The CASE TV450 provides lifting and earthmoving performance that will meet the demand of general contractors, landscapers, roadbuilders — and the 4,000 psi with enhanced high-flow makes this an excellent platform for attachments,” says Deborah Townsley, product marketing manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “It’s a powerful, large-frame loader that handles heavy materials and still provides the advantages of low ground pressure for jobsites where finished lawns and underground utilities may exist.”
