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 and Trekker Group Support Team Rubicon and Salvation Army in Home Rebuild for Military Veteran After Hurricane Irma

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Trekker Group donated the use of a CASE SV185 skid steer loader to help Team Rubicon finish rebuilding the home of Earl Bishop, an Army veteran, and his wife Elizabeth. The Bishop’s home, located in Immokalee, Florida, sustained substantial physical and flood damage during Hurricane Irma in 2017.

After the Bishops realized the money provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) would not do enough to make their home livable, Team Rubicon and the Salvation Army stepped-up to help, launching ‘The Bishop Rebuild.’

CASE, Sonsray Machinery Provide Team Rubicon with Equipment for California Wildfire Response

CASE Construction Equipment and Sonsray Machinery have donated the use of a CX80C excavator to Team Rubicon for Operation Wind River, a response to the wildfires that burned more than 23,000 acres between Orange and Riverside Counties in California.

Operation Wind River assisted residents in the Robin Hood Oaks community, located in Lake Elsinore, California. After the wildfire was contained in mid-September, the community experienced heavy rainfall leading to mudslides that filled with decomposed granite and sand. Additional rain caused flooding that severely damaged three homes.

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.  

Reduce Downtime and Maximize Productivity with Daily Maintenance of your CTL

Today’s high-performance compact track loaders (CTLs) can provide several productivity advantages on nearly any jobsite. However, these competitive advantages can be lost if a CTL isn’t running at peak performance, and there are several things that equipment owners can do to improve productivity and extend service life.

By taking the following steps each day pre- and post-operation, equipment owners and operators can help to prevent bad things from happening before they turn into costly downtime events, and will ensure that fleet managers can address concerns in equipment health and upkeep at times throughout the day with the least impact on productivity.

CASE Sponsors NALP Regional Workshop

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.”
