Excavator Provides Power and Jobsite Access for Faulkner Excavating

Carl Faulkner began his career in the cab of his father’s excavator over 30 years ago. Working for his father’s company at a young age, and staying in the trade all these years, Faulkner decided to start his own company in 2012. Located in Imperial, Missouri, Faulkner Excavating specializes in site development, clearing and infrastructure work for residential and commercial sites in Jefferson and St. Louis Counties.

“Most commonly we do subdivisions,” explains Faulkner. “We’ll do the excavating for subdivisions, we’ll install the infrastructure of the sanitary sewer, storm sewer, water mains, the services to reach each lot. We’ll also do commercial lots.”

Miller-Bradford & Risberg Donates Equipment to Team Rubicon for Site Development Project at Boy Scouts of America’s Camp Long Lake

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Miller-Bradford & Risberg donated the use of an excavator and a skid steer to Team Rubicon for a service project and training session May 6-7, 2017 at the Boy Scouts of America’s Camp Long Lake in St. Cloud, Wisconsin.

The site is operated by the Potowatomi Area Council, Boy Scouts of America. The project featured Team Rubicon heavy equipment operators and sawyer teams training with equipment and chainsaws to sharpen their skills for use on future disaster relief deployments. The group forested and cleared a new 40,000-square-foot pad at the camp that will serve as the base area for a future all-terrain vehicle program.

CASE Expands D Series with CX245D SR Minimum-Swing Excavator

CASE Construction Equipment has introduced the all-new CX245D SR minimum-swing radius excavator to its D Series lineup. Designed to provide increased digging and lifting power in confined work areas, the CX245D SR features a compact counterweight and modified boom placement that minimizes the machine’s footprint, resulting in a highly productive and maneuverable excavator that’s ideal for restricted conditions, such as road and bridge work, residential projects and urban construction.

With an operating weight of 60,400 pounds and a 160 HP Tier 4 Final engine, the CX245D SR offers increased bucket digging forces (up to 34,600 pounds) and lift capacity (up to 22,950 pounds) compared to the previous model.

Team Rubicon and CASE Construction Equipment Assist in Landmark Conservation Efforts at Salton Sea

The Salton Sea, a large, shallow saline lake in the desert of Southern California, was formed as it stands today when an irrigation canal carrying water from the Colorado River broke in 1905. By the 1960s the lake had become a vacation paradise filled with resorts and hotels, and at the time was referred to by some developers as “the American Riviera.”

During the 1980s and 1990s the lake was home to one of the greatest sport fisheries in the world. However, because it has served as a drainage sump for over 100 years, the Sea has accumulated excessive nutrients and other chemical compounds, primarily in the form of hydrogen sulfide, ammonia and salt. The increasing nutrient and salinity levels are killing the Sea, as the water is becoming too salty for most life forms.

CASE, Central Machinery Work with Team Rubicon to Improve Wetland Habitats at Turnbull Wildlife Refuge

CASE Construction Equipment and Central Machinery provided equipment and product/training support to veteran-led disaster response organization Team Rubicon for use in training 10 new participants in its heavy equipment training program at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge. The training included critical project work removing man-made islands in low-lying wetland areas to improve the habitat for birds and waterfowl.

“We’re tearing down these islands and smoothing it out to return these wetlands to the way Mother Nature intended them to be,” says Steve Fox, engineering equipment operator, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. “It opens up the water and creates more of a natural habitat. Team Rubicon has been great. This is something that’s going to take us a few years to complete – they’ve helped us get farther along than we would be – it offers them a training area, and we’re getting good work done on the refuge.”
