Publisher’s Letter Political thoughts and unsung heroes For some time now, I have believed that you will never get anything to change by speaking to only those who agree with you. This is the season for politics and debates. The Republicans have fielded an army of potential presidential candidates which is probably a good thing as they have several leaders who may be up to the task. The Democrats have a list, which I believe, is up to five. Two of which most people recognize. Viewing the polls so far it is apparent that many voters are not at all satisfied with politicians in general. That is likely the reason we have seen the interest in candidates who have had no political experience. Many people believe that political experience is important but I am not sure our Founding Fathers would have agreed with that. When this nation was formed, our framers planned that bankers, ranchers, lawyers and others would give up part of their time for two years or six years to make necessary laws and then return to their business to live under the laws they just created. How many companies do you know where the employees decide how much to pay themselves or have the employees decide what kind of benefits their boss should have but not be willing to accept the same for themselves? When the government decides to rob Peter to pay Paul, you can pretty much expect to have Paul’s full support. We have come a long way in the past 239 years (but which direction?). It will be interesting to watch the direction our country takes with the present election cycle. Our association has been very active in evaluating the people and the issues that have an impact on our industry. We had the pleasure of having our lieutenant governor, Gavin Newsom as our guest speaker for the annual dinner this year. While I have to admit I have very little in common with him on social issues, he does run three very successful wineries in Napa Valley. He understands business, probably better than our current administration both State and Federal. He joined us in late August for a tour of Vulcan’s quarry and hot plant in San Diego. He asked very good questions and showed a sincere interest in our effort to build and maintain the state’s highway infrastructure. While the next gubernatorial election is still three years away, we may want to follow his interest in our industry. With each asphalt magazine that we receive it has been enjoyable and informative to read articles about our member companies but one of the people behind that information gets little recognition. Kerry Hoover is one of our unsung heroes. Kerry is always in the background playing a critical role, taking pictures to record our achievements, writing or rewriting stories or articles about what we do. She is one of our greatest supporters and a true Asphalt Ambassador. For once, we turned the camera on her with Gavin Newsom. We are honored to give her a little well-deserved spotlight. Thank you Kerry, Brian and your whole team, for all you do. Remember, stay involved and thank those who make our lives better. Sincerely,

Flying High On Potential of UAV Technology in Construction and Beyond By Brian Hoover

L

ook! Up in the sky! It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s…oh, it’s just another UAV. The FAA has said that the agency expects that as many as 1 million UAVs will be sold this coming holiday season. When you consider the many possible benefits a company can glean from the use of UAVs, it is easy to imagine sales that may soon see that number pale in comparison. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), popularly known as drones, are being looked at and utilized in a variety of industries, including agriculture, real estate, aerial surveying, photography and in the environmental industry. It is also being applied in the energy sector for inspections of pipelines, flare stacks, windmills and solar panels. The mining industry is adopting the technology to detect landslides and for mineral extraction accounting purposes. The film and television industry have used UAVs in films such as Skyfall (a recent James Bond film) and several of the Harry Potter movies, realizing a huge savings where conventional helicopters were once used. At Cal State East Bay, located in Hayward, the office of University Communications deployed a UAV to collect footage for campus promotion and news media purposes, says Jeffrey C. Bliss, associate vice president for university communications. He said the UAV footage was much more impressive than video he has collected in previous jobs that were shot from helicopters or fixed-wing aircraft. “We used it for a promotional video for the campus, and we’re always looking for ‘B-roll’ footage for the news 10

media, so when they contact us we have it available for them to use,” Bliss said. “We also use the footage for recruitment purposes, use it to reach out to donors and peer institutions. It presents such stellar photo and video opportunities. The drone footage provided a better visual of who we are and our place in the Bay,” Bliss said. The campus contracted out with a private firm to provide the footage, and made sure they had all the proper licenses and insurance coverage. UAVs have also gained the attention of contractors for their use in everything from managing jobsite progress and general monitoring of construction activities, to surveying, 3D mapping and automating the measurement of stockpiles of aggregates and other construction materials. In other areas of construction, they can be used to inspect hard-toreach areas and perform safety inspections. Testing is being done

to incorporate UAVs as production vehicles in running aerial cable and utility lines, as well as for hauling and delivering tools and parts within a jobsite. Contractors are always looking for that competitive edge and UAV technology can help them get into areas that humans or heavy machinery, either cannot venture or where a UAV would simply be more efficient and productive. Safety is also a concern and UAV technology is currently being used to inspect bridges and other structures to locate corrosion or possible failures, keeping a workers feet on the ground and out of danger. If you are an asphalt contractor, you can imagine the advantage of doing a flyover on a prospective jobsite and then using that as part of your sales presentation. UAVs could also be used to locate potential trouble areas or defects, assist in calculating a smoothness index,

or measure other information such as rideability, surface distress and skid resistance. The UAV is the vehicle that allows the user to gain the necessary altitude to perform video and data collection, but it is the powerful geographic information system (GIS) and software that takes this information, analyzes the patterns and relationships and converts it all into a 2D or 3D model for display on a computer screen. A GIS is, simply put, a computer system used for capturing, storing, checking and displaying data related to positions on the Earth’s surface. All sorts of software platforms are currently being developed. For example researchers at Nottingham Trent University in the United Kingdom are developing smart scanning technology to detect the early signs of potholes and determine their severity. Additionally, a UK university has developed a GIS model that predicts where potholes will frequently recur in roads. Construction equipment manufacturers are adding UAV technology to their sales lineup and in some cases they are using UAVs to help navigate unmanned machines. Faced with a looming

shortage of skilled construction workers in Japan, Komatsu has partnered with Silicon Valley based company, Skycatch, to begin bringing a new revolutionary concept it calls “Smart Construction” to life. The new technology allows for a team of automated dozers and excavators to scoop rock and push dirt without a human behind the wheel. They are guided in their work by a fleet of UAVs, which scan job sites to capture imagery and then automatically generate the information into highly accurate 3D data. The results are then transmitted as instructions to Smart Construction machinery for fully autonomous work on the site. Construction equipment distributors are also adding UAV products and systems to their sales portfolio. RDO Integrated Controls (RDO IC) was established by RDO Equipment Co. in 2009, in order to deliver innovative Topcon solutions and support for their construction GPS and Machine Control customers. Over the past few years, RDO IC has added UAV products and they currently offer the senseFly and Topcon Sirius Pro UAV systems. According to RDO IC Mapping/ UAV Product Supervisor, Matt

Hayes, senseFly offers two platforms. One is a fixed-wing craft and goes by the name, eBee, while the other is a multi-rotor platform, known as eXom. The senseFly eBee comes with detachable and replaceable wings and at just 1.5 lbs, is one of the lightest UAVs currently available on the market. The eBee takes off, flies and lands autonomously, while the artificial intelligence autopilot analyzes data from the Inertial Measurement Unit and the onboard GPS. The eXom can achieve sub-millimeter image resolutions, while capturing video, still and thermal imagery, all during the same flight. “The eXom can do what the eBee does in terms of 2D and 3D mapping, but it also does much more with its close inspection and ventricle mapping capabilities. This would include subjects like roof inspections, cellphone towers, buildings and bridges,” says Hayes. “The eBee can cover up to hundreds of acres in a single flight and, in my opinion, is the most user friendly mini drone on the market. It can also acquire images with a GSD (ground sampling distance) of down to .08 inches per pixel.” Hayes goes on to point out that the Topcon Sirius Pro is another long-range mapping system option that offers longer flight times, as well as the ability to fly in heavier wind conditions. “Our UAV systems complement one another well, each a leader in their one particular niche,” says Hayes. “In the end, it is all about the quality of the data and how the technology makes businesses more efficient and profitable.” The senseFly packages are sold with a one-time fee that includes the flight planning and imagestitching software, all with end-user, lifetime licenses and free upgrades. According to Hayes, there are no hidden maintenance fees and you can put each software package into as many as 20 seats. 12

EnviroMINE is a San Diegobased mine consulting firm and CalAPA member with over 30 years’ experience operating throughout the Western United States. The firm offers a full range of environmental consulting and project management services for both the public and private sectors. Their expertise extends into many areas including project management for permitting efforts, resource evaluations, mine and reclamation planning, GIS analysis and mapping, and construction materials market studies. It is important to note that EnviroMINE has received a grant of exemption in accordance with Section 333 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (FMRA), as well as a Certificate of Waiver of Authorization (COA). They have also registered their UAV with the FAA and currently have a pilot in training to receive an FAA airman certificate, which puts them in full compliance with current FAA regulations. EnviroMINE offers a service known as MineFLY™, a suite of aerial mapping and contour product solutions. According to EnvironMINE’s project manager, Crystal Howard, MineFLY™ offers high-quality, low-cost aerial mapping through the use of a UAV. “Among other things, we do mine permitting and reclamation plans for mining companies,” says Howard. “This includes the collection of topo (topographic) data for use in constructing mine plans for clients.” Howard notes that if a facility is going to adjust their mine plan or go through the initial permitting process, they must fly the site to acquire current topography via GIS mapping. Also many conditions of approval require a mining operation to provide fly over data to the lead agency on an annual basis. “We can also help with calculating stockpile inventories through the use of our drones,” Howard says.

“We chose the senseFly eBee system with Pix 4D software. The data goes into the Point Cloud software, where it can differentiate between the ground and trees. UAV technology has taken what used to require several weeks of labor and condensed that into hours and days at a tremendous cost savings to our clients.” One of EnvironMINE’s customers is CalAPA member United Rock Products (United Rock), which uses EnvironMINE’s UAV services where longer and more encompassing flights are required, but they have their own systems for other less –intensive data collection purposes. Colas USA, a world leader in the construction and maintenance of transport infrastructure, is the parent company for United Rock Products, as well as CalAPA members Blue Diamond Materials (Blue Diamond) and Sully-Miller Contracting Company (Sully-Miller). Jon Layne is the Business Development Manager for the Sully-Miller Group and he knows a thing or two about UAVs. He started out about eight years ago having fun with one of those single-blade helicopters that you might find at Radio Shack. A few years back, Jon upgraded to a Parrott Wi-Fi quadricopter and has been honing his skills ever since. His hobby has now made its way into his regular duties at Sully-Miller, as well as for Blue Diamond and United Rock. Jon and three others fly the Kespry Drone System to measure aggregate supplies and reserves at United Rock, and RAP and aggregate stockpile inventory at Blue Diamond asphalt plants. In the near future, Jon hopes to use the drone in providing data for pavement condition index, smoothness index information, and to measure quantity of materials for customers of SullyMiller prior to, during, and after

construction. “With the Kespry drone, I simply plug the various coordinates into the iPad, which includes the safe area and capture area and it pretty much does the rest,” says Layne. “I do a preflight check with the iPad and after that I simply push a button to launch and land the drone. It is programmed to do the rest.” Jon points out that measuring aggregate supplies was once an arduous and unsafe task. “Previously, it was necessary to shoot points from the base, top and at all the break points of our many supply piles in order to calculate a volume. This would take weeks and was physically exhausting,” says Layne. “The Kespry Drone System creates a safer work environment and we get results within hours.” Jon also notes that Sully-Miller’s parent company, Colas USA, has purchased 20 drones for use at various facilities throughout the U.S. and Canada. “Colas USA has issued their own strict internal-use operating rules that –meet current FAA guidelines,” says Layne. “For instance, even though FAA guidelines allow UAVs to navigate up to 400 feet, as an added precautionary measure, we are currently limiting flights to stay below 200 feet. Drones may only be flown over company-owned property. Only those individuals who have received certification from Kespry may operate the drones. These are just a few of the guidelines

set forth by Colas USA and SullyMiller. When the FAA institutes their new UAV regulations in 2016, Colas USA will select certain employees from each company to obtain the required FAA license and Kespry will assist us in that process. Safety is always our number one concern and we go to great lengths to assure that everyone remains safe at all times. We also carry aviation insurance on each of our drone units.” Jason Rath works as a Civil engineering technician for the San Luis Obispo County Department of Public Works and he is responsible for performing construction inspection and material testing. Rath has also been a UAV enthusiast for many years, starting out with a small RC helicopter like so many others before him. “My dad and I are into fixed blades and I have flown many and crashed many,” says Rath. “I have been heavily into photography for many years and have long recognized the benefits that drones could provide to this end.” His supervisor noticed pictures of drones on his desk and when he found out that he was an accomplished UAV pilot, he asked if Rath would be willing to fly an emergency water-line project for use in an environmental impact report. “The agency agreed to purchase a DJI Phantom III drone and off I went to not only document this, but also a massive sewer project and another

California Asphalt Magazine • 2015 Equipment Guide Issue

multimillion-dollar job as well,” says Rath. “We are using drone technology for simple documentation purposes, but we see much more value and hope to soon implement them to create cross sections and to develop typographic maps and integrate them into a GIS program. This is game-changing technology and we intend to make full use of the benefits.” From agencies, contractors and mines and quarries to construction equipment manufacturers and distributors and private enterprise, the positive effects of UAV technology on our economy are undeniable. According to the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), the total UAV domestic economic impact could reach more than $82.1 billion between 2015 and 2025, creating more than 100,000 high-paying jobs in the process. Consider the most recent UAV startup called AirDroids, a pocket drone that is collapsible and can fit easily into a backpack — a flying robot that goes everywhere you go, documenting your daily escapades. Partners, T.J. Johnson, 29, and Timothy Reuter, 37, have already taken in $1.2 million in pre-orders and they just got started. The sky, apparently, is no longer the limit.

The Wild West of Regulating UAVs and What You Should Know Going Forward By Brian Hoover

F

AA Administrator, Michael Huerta and Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx held a press conference Monday, Oct. 18 to discuss Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) safety and the establishment of a new task force that would include members of the government, pilots, UAV hobbyists and other industry professionals. The purpose of the more than two-dozen member task force would be, among other things, to recommend potential UAV registration policies. These policies are said to include specifically what UAVs will be included, as well as registration methods and how it should affect the UAVs that have already been sold. According to Transportation Secretary, Anthony Foxx, the group will have until Nov. 20 to finalize its recommendations, which would conveniently coincide with the holiday sales season. The FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 was enacted by Congress back in February 2012 and called for the FAA to integrate UAVs into U.S. airspace by Sept. 30, 2015. That date has come and gone and reportedly the FAA now hopes this can be accomplished by spring 2016. In February 2015, the FAA proposed a framework of regulations for the use of UAVs within today’s aviation system. This included provisions set forth in Section 333 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012, which allows for current operators of UAVs to apply for an exemption. U.S. Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., a member of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee and a subcommittee that oversees the Federal Aviation Administration, said in response to

14

a question by California Asphalt magazine that UAV’s are upon us and the government must respond quickly to protect public safety. “It’s coming. It’s going to be there. It’s going to happen,” he said, adding that UAV lobbyists in Washington have told him they expect to sell 1 million of the devices this holiday season. Garamendi earlier this year introduced federal legislation to make it a federal crime to operate a UAV in an active fire zone, or within 2 miles of a commercial airport. The legislation came in response to high-profile incidents of drones interfering with wildfire suppression efforts and reports of aircraft being forced to alter takeoffs and landings at major airports, including Los Angeles International Airport, due to UAV activity. He said that the FAA process for bringing forward regulations is very slow, and that some protections need to be in place. At the same time, he said UAVs show great promise in many industries, including agriculture. “We think it’s time to lay down the law, and we can talk to people and educate them. And the best way

to educate people is to arrest a couple of them and the word goes out. It’s a real serious issue, but it’s going to be a huge industry.” According to the FAA website (www.faa.gov/uas/legislative_ programs/section_333/333_faqs/#q1), the four main requirements needed to operate a UAV for a business are: a Section 333 grant of exemption, a Certificate of Waiver or Authorization (COA), an aircraft registered with the FAA, and a pilot with an FAA airman certificate. As of Oct. 22 there have been 2,020 Section 333 petitions granted and 399 petitions closed. According to the above-mentioned website, the need for a Section 333 grant of exemption to fly a UAV commercially is necessary, even if you are only flying to supplement or aide your business and even if you are not charging fees. Step-by-step instructions for requesting FAA authorization to operate a UAV for civil (nongovernmental) purposes, other than for recreation or hobby, can be found at www.faa.gov/uas/ legislative_programs/section_333/ how_to_file_a_petition/.

also use Google to find the dozens of companies popping up on the Web that offer assistance for a fee. One such company is UAV Coach (www.uavcoach.com), where you will find a video that does a great job of explaining what you will need to do to get your UAV up and flying commercially and in full compliance of current FAA regulations. Alan Perlman is the owner and founder of UAV Coach and he has been flying UAVs and operating other remote vehicles since the age of eight. “I saw this huge disconnect on how advanced this technology has become and the lack of education and emphasis on safety,” says Perlman. “My goal is to promote safety and help businesses and individuals navigate the industry at whatever level they are interested.” In a phone interview with California Asphalt magazine, Perlman was asked if it is necessary for a commercial UAV operator to have a pilot certificate. “The simple answer is if you are following the FAA guidelines and you have a 333 exemption and you are the pilot in command (PIC), you then need to have a pilot certificate,” says Perlman. “When you go through the exemption process, the FAA will send you a congratulatory letter with your exemption and introduce you to 25 plus guidelines that you will need to follow.” 16

Perlman went on to explain that those interested in attaining a 333 exemption, should allow for a minimum of 120 days for their petition to be evaluated and answered. He also pointed out that a sport pilot certificate is the least expensive and least time consuming pilot certificate solution. A sport pilot certificate requires a minimum of 20 hours of flight time (at a cost of $10,000 to $13,000), 15 hours of flight training from a certified flight instructor and 5 hours solo flight. This can be compared to 30 hours of flight time for a recreational certificate (at $13,000 to $15,000), and 40 hours for a private pilot certificate (at around $13,000 to $16,000). “It is my hope that the FAA will adopt policies and recognize the need for independent UAV training and certification facilities throughout the United States,” says Perlman. “I believe that a UAV pilot must have an understanding of national airspace and how unmanned aircraft falls into the existing framework. Mandatory airtime in a manned aircraft may be a bit overreaching, and I would not be surprised if this policy is changed or modified in the near future.” California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed legislation back in September 2015 that would have prohibited flying a drone less than 350 feet above private property without the property owner’s

permission. He explained that he did not want to introduce legislation that could possibly expose hobbyists or \FAA-approved commercial UAV users to burdensome litigation. This may indicate that government officials recognize the many benefits of a seemingly unstoppable multibillion-dollar industry, but it is clear that they have every intention of regulating it for the safety and interest of everyone involved. An overview of proposed small UAV rules can be viewed at http://www.faa.gov/ regulations_policies/rulemaking/ media/021515_sUAS_Summary. pdf. Some of the more major bullet points include: aircraft must weigh less than 55 lbs., UAV must remain within visual line-of-sight, maximum airspeed of 100 mph and maximum altitude of 500 feet. It doesn’t look like it is going to be easy or that we will have all the answers anytime soon. It is clear, however, that UAV technology will continue to be utilized in California and across the nation in a variety of industries. At what cost and with what permanent regulations, only time will tell. For more information or a free consultation, you can call Alan Perlman at (617) 331-2426.

cott Equipment was officially established in Fontana back in 1991, however the Scott Family has been involved in the equipment business for nearly 50 years. Richard Scott, Sr. was first introduced to the construction equipment scene in the 1960s, when he went to work for Klein Products, a manufacturer of water trucks and towers. Richard spearheaded the sales effort and eventually became a minority partner in the operation located in the Inland Empire. Richard

Scott, Sr. and Dick Klein decided to part ways, when Richard learned of an opportunity to acquire a John Deere dealership in San Diego. Scott Machinery proudly opened their doors as a certified John Deere dealer in 1971 and Richard eagerly went to work, establishing a name for his fledgling company, as he gained a foothold in San Diego County. The company did well and they continued to grow and prosper over the next 20 plus years. Richard Scott, Jr. and

Gregg Scott were just in grade school, when their father purchased the John Deere dealership. Both brothers hold fond memories of growing up around heavy equipment, unknowingly learning a culture and discipline that would serve them well in their future. Both Richard and Gregg worked summers and breaks for the family business, eventually joining the company full-time. They did it all, from sweeping floors and doing inventory in the parts department, to driving trucks equipped with lowbed trailers for pickup and delivery of heavy machinery. The early ‘80s presented a down economy and Richard Scott, Sr. decided to diversify his operations a bit in order to not be held hostage by the then unpredictable San Diego marketplace. He opened up a rental equipment company in Fontana and named it Western Rentals. Richard Scott, Jr. was asked to move to the Inland Empire in 1983 to help oversee the growth and development of the new but already growing

enterprise. Richard Jr. worked hard and helped lead the rental company into growth, not only in the Inland Empire, but also to a breakthrough into the Greater L.A. Basin. Consequently, a move that was supposed to be a short stint ended up being a permanent situation and Richard Jr. is still there, some 30 plus years later. He remained on to manage growth, as well as to oversee another opportunity that became available to the Scott Family in 1991. The year 1990 brought yet another down economic climate and the existing Ford New Holland dealer, in San Bernardino County, had decided to close their doors. Scott Equipment was born in 1991, as Richard Scott, Sr. seized this opportunity to once again diversify his equipment company portfolio. John Deere would not allow an existing dealer to offer Deere equipment outside of their designated territory and so Richard Sr. saw this as an opportunity to expand his presence in the Greater L.A. area with his new Ford New Holland dealership. Richard Sr. could

also feel the winds of change at his back, as rumors began to circulate that Deere was looking more toward larger multi dealerships nationwide and less to the single store operations. Rumors turned to fact, when the Riverside County John Deere Dealer, Whitney Machinery, purchased Scott Machinery in 1994, in order to make them more viable in a much more competitive marketplace. Richard Scott, Sr. had worked hard his entire life and he saw this as an opportunity to enter semi-retirement. By this time, Gregg Scott had been working for the Mark Gorn Auction Group (MGA) for five years, but now was needed in Fontana to help his brother, Richard, run both Scott Equipment and Western Rentals. The two brothers have been partners ever since, with Richard Scott, Jr. (Richard) overseeing most of the dealer principle responsibilities, new equipment sales, cash flow, payroll and other general business duties and Gregg Scott taking care of the entire rental operation and 19

used equipment responsibilities. Either brother is perfectly capable of performing any of the above-mentioned tasks, but according to Richard, they each seem more comfortable in their respective roles. Scott Equipment has seen their ups and downs over the past 35 years. They became known and are still thought of, in part, as an excavator house. This started in the early ‘80s, when they took on the Mitsubishi excavator line, which was so successful that it introduced Scott Equipment to a long list of contractors in the Greater L.A. area. They became a Kobelco dealer in the 1990s and this continued through the merger with New Holland and remains to this day, even after the breakup of Kobelco and New Holland. 2006 brought the addition of the Moxy articulated truck line, which was a great acquisition, if not for the economic times. With the advent of the Great Recession beginning in 2007, the lineup of six giant articulated beasts out front was temporarily relegated to become 20

equipment yard bookends and that did not serve any productive interest. The decision was made at this time to concentrate more heavily on the governmental entities and the sales of the smaller utility equipment during this period. This proved to be a wise decision, as Scott Equipment continues to be a major provider of equipment to municipalities and other state and local agencies. The Moxy articulated truck business eventually took-off and when Doosan acquired Moxy in 2010, Scott Equipment automatically became a limited Doosan dealer in Southern California. Many other changes took place from 2010 to 2012 that would change the landscape of offerings for Scott Equipment. Some of their manufacturers discontinued certain equipment offerings and Scott Equipment was also being courted by other manufactures at the same time. Scott Equipment made some changes including becoming a full-line Doosan dealer, as well as adding lines like Dynapac/ Atlas Copco. Today, they offer

a very well rounded line card that includes: New Holland Construction, New Holland Agriculture, Doosan, Kobelco, Dynapac/Atlas Copco, Fecon, Wacker Neuson and JRB. According to Richard Scott, Jr., excavators remain as one of Scott Equipment’s mainstays, and the New Holland skid steer and skip loader business continues to dominate in certain construction niches. “We have also made great strides toward becoming a leader in wheel loader sales as well,” says Richard. “The future is wide-open, as manufacturers are asking us to extend our footprint. I think we may start looking at how and where this will make the most sense.” According to Richard Scott, the Company’s tremendous skip loader business has opened doors and greatly enhanced the sales and potential of their Dynapac/Atlas Copco lines to asphalt contractors. “The Southern California asphalt contractor is very important to our growth here at Scott [ Continued on page 22 ]

Equipment. We offer exactly what they need at a price that makes sense and customer support that will keep them coming back,” says Richard. “We have also added a large number of Dynapac double drum rollers to our Western Rentals fleet and we have many other late model machines ready to serve our customers that are not quite in need of a full-time unit. If someone is looking for a new, used or rental machine, they really should give us a call. We have what they need and we are ready to deal.”

Scott Equipment’s diverse lineup and seasoned sales team has put them in a position to expand and grow their sales in the Inland Empire and Greater L.A. Basin. One can actually see the growth of the company and feel the enthusiasm coming from each and every team member at Scott Equipment. “This is a time of great excitement and our new product offerings and upturn in the general economy has definitely brought the fun back to our business,” says Richard. “We are being proactive and doing things like joining the

Asphalt Paving Association in order to increase awareness and remain active in the asphalt construction industry. I am very excited about our future here at Scott Equipment and would like to thank everyone that has stood by us over these past 35 years.” For more information on Scott Equipment, please visit them at www.scottequip.com or call (909) 822-2200.

THE ORIGINAL IS STILL THE BEST

The Roadtec “Shuttle Buggy” material transfer vehicle (MTV) provides unequaled performance to other MTVs and is used extensively by government road departments worldwide to achieve consistently high quality asphalt pavement. Pavement lifespan tests have shown that a temperature differential of less than seven degrees Celsius in the mat behind the paver are key to even compaction and pavement durability.

WITH SHUTTLE BUGGY Infrared imaging behind the Shuttle Buggy™ MTV has shown in tests conducted in the U.S. as well as in Europe that the machine easily and consistently remixes to achieve temperature differential below the seven degree Celsius threshold. This proven performance has led not only to the machine’s popularity all over the world, but also allows contractors to earn maximum smoothness bonuses and win quality awards.

Insurance column Equipment - commercial inland marine coverage By Steve Cota, Patriot Risk & Insurance Services

If you have been purchasing and renting new equipment throughout the year, how important is it that you add everything to your commercial inland marine policy? If you don’t, will you still be insured for a loss? Mixer Flights

Discharge Flights

Combustion Flight Castings

Inland marine insurance coverage (or a “floater” policy as it is sometimes called) is intended to insure equipment, tools and material that are in transit and/ or are away from your premises. The equipment can include skip loaders, milling machines, grinders, graders, backhoes, portable office trailers, etc. and even water trucks not licensed for highway use. Your policy will contain a limit for any newly acquired equipment not yet reported during the policy year. The limit of coverage for unreported equipment could be as low as $5,000. It is important to remember to review your schedule of equipment and the insured limits at least 90 days prior to each policy year. I recommend that all additions and deletions to the schedule should be made to the policy as each transaction occurs to ensure proper reporting and coverage. For your rented or leased equipment, make sure you are covered for the maximum value of the equipment along with loss of rental or leased income insurance to cover your liability while any lost or damaged equipment in your possession is being repaired or replaced.

Slat Conveyor Liners

Cone Liners

It is also important to make sure your employees are aware on how to use the equipment. One of our clients recently destroyed a $100,000 piece of rented equipment because their employee was not an experienced operator. In addition to physical damage of the rental equipment, the inexperienced operator was injured creating a very costly workers’ compensation claim. Inland marine insurance is also intended to cover goods and material in transit and while at a jobsite. It is recommended to check the policy’s limit to ensure accurate coverage was bound.

For an unusual or special occasion (e.g., the renting of a high-valued piece of equipment) you may want to have your policy specifically endorsed (only for the rental period) rather than being charged premium for the entire policy year based on an over estimated limit of liability for leased or rented equipment. CA Steve Cota, CRIS directs the Asphalt Paving Program for Patriot Risk & Insurance Services. For more information regarding the above or any other insurance-related questions, he may be reached at (949) 486-7947 or scota@patrisk.com.

Construction on the HMA plant began in January and was completed in May. It has additional seismic safety bracing due to the numerous earthquake faults in the Bay Area, with a 4.5-foot thick silo foundation that took more than 800 cubic yards of concrete to construct. The silo legs feature 2-inch bolts embedded in 3.5-inch concrete, and the silo legs took four certified welders five weeks to weld to the pads. The plant also boasts state-of-the-art emissions controls. The plant is located at 6527 Calaveras Road in Sunol. The order desk is (925) 829-1446 and the Quarry Office is (925) 862-1909. CA
