Publisher’s Letter Dear Readers, It’s been said that the only thing constant is change. We’ve certainly seen that in our industry over the years, and changing economics, specifications, technology and other forces are always challenging us to stay one step ahead. Change has also impacted many companies in our business as they adapt to market forces, opportunities and challenges in California, the biggest and most complex asphalt market in the country. Our company has not been immune to these forces, and in recent years has changed from Paramount Petroleum, then Alon USA Energy Inc., and now Delek US, a diversified energy company with petroleum and refinery assets in Texas, Arkansas and California. Even though our name has changed, we are committed to providing the same high quality products and services to the asphalt industry in California. The one thing that has remained constant during these changes, however, has been our company’s membership in the California Asphalt Pavement Association. Founded in 1953, CalAPA is the respected voice of the asphalt pavement industry in California, and our CalAPA membership not only represents our support for the industry but our strong belief that our participation strengthens the industry as well as our company. We have been pleased over the years to participate in helping guide the longterm direction of the association via our participation on the Board of Directors and in CalAPA’s various policy committees. CalAPA’s educational mission helps insure that our member companies hear about changes months or even years before they occur, so we can anticipate and prepare for them. CalAPA is also engaged with elected officials, regulators and other policy-influencers to ensure that the voice of the asphalt pavement industry is carefully considered whenever changes are being formulated. In addition, the asphalt pavement industry in California is like a big extended family, and CalAPA provides a welcoming environment for members to strengthen existing business relationships, make new ones, and have a good time in the process.

Industry responds to devastating wildfires By Russell W. Snyder

As sprawling wildfire, weaponized by winds gusting up to 80 mph, rampaged through Northern California’s scenic wine country, CalAPA members sprang into action alongside police and firefighters even as their own homes were threatened and in some cases consumed by the flames. In a state accustomed to its share of natural disasters, whether it be earthquakes, drought, flooding and seasonal brushfires, these October conflagrations – there were a total of 170 separate wildland fires going on in different parts of the state in the month – the Atlas fire stood out for its breathtaking speed and indiscriminate devastation the likes of which have not been seen in California in its history. “Think of it like a giant blowtorch,” said Scott McLean, Deputy Chief of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or CAL FIRE. “Highway 101 wasn’t even a speed bump. It was pushed by 60 mph winds, with some clocked at 80 mph. It

started in Calistoga and the winds pushed the flames to Santa Rosa in a few hours. It hit the residential areas between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. It’s the middle of the night, when most people were asleep.” Some of the victims never made it out of their homes. Weeks later, cars are charred hulks in driveways, never getting a chance to ferry families to safety. Homes were blackened skeletons or

indistinguishable piles of rubble. “There were 43 people killed,” McLean said, "It’s a miracle that there weren’t more fatalities.” CalAPA member companies BoDean Co., based in Santa Rosa, and Syar Industries, based in Napa, found themselves at the center of the disaster, which threatened their businesses, employees and communities.

“It’s was nuts, man – big time,” says Josh Cleaver, Director of Sales & Quality Control for BoDean Co., Inc., which operates an asphalt plant in Santa Rosa and two quarries nearby. The fire came within blocks of the asphalt plant, and actually swept across the company’s 30-acre Mark West Quarry about 12 miles away. Cleaver’s account is harrowing enough to give any asphalt operator nightmares. “The night the fire started, Dean, our owner, was on vacation, and somebody sent him a text saying ‘I heard there was a fire out by the quarry.’ So he texted me. We have a camera system up there and I went on the camera system. There


was no sign of smoke or anything yet – everything was dark, like it normally should be. Then, about five minutes later, it looked like daylight, and then you could see flames coming up the back side of the quarry. It got really light, and then – woosh – the cameras were off. So at that point we saw the flames coming, but we didn’t know how bad it was because the cameras were gone, and we had no idea what kind of condition the quarry was in.” Meanwhile, BoDean truck driver Robert Lindsay, 15-year veteran of the company, got behind the wheel of his water truck to help overwhelmed firefighters try to keep the relentless fire from homes and businesses.

Lindsay spent the next 24-hours working at times side-by-side with firefighters dousing homes in the face of a towering wall of flames and smoke. Water trucks from at least three other companies also joined in. “It was pretty intense,” he recalled later." There were firefighters running around without any equipment. When they saw three water-tenders coming in there, they were stationing us where they needed to stop the fire from traveling. Basically, I went wherever they needed to stop that fire from going in another direction.” At one point, the air cleaner of his rig caught fire, causing the truck to shut down. Overcoming fear that would cause anyone else to run for safety, Lindsay got some help to put out the fire and get his truck back in action. “I put out the fire and said to myself, ‘I can do this.’ I just reloaded, went back down the hill and kept going.” Lindsay’s water truck holds 3,600 gallons of water, and can shoot water about 200 feet, emptying the tank in just 6 minutes. “Most of the time I was just making a curtain of water between the house that was burning and the one that wasn’t,” he said. After I got done with one project, I was on to the next fire. It was just go, go, go. There were a couple times where, I was so close to a house, I could feel the heat coming through the water. That’s how intense it was.”

With no firefighting equipment, Lindsay kept the windows in his truck rolled up and the airconditioning on high to keep him cool and filter out the smoky air as much as possible. He stayed on the fire lines for 24-hours straight. Social media was abuzz with gratitude from residents who said Lindsay’s heroics were the only thing that saved their homes. “A huge Thank You!!! My house survived on San Miguel due to your water trucks!” Trisha Conte posted on the BoDean Facebook Page. “Forever grateful!!!” Added Anthony Boyle in another Facebook post: “Your trucks were the first water trucks I saw at 2 a.m. in Coffey Park. Thank you for your efforts. You guys help(ed) save my house!” Lindsay says he doesn’t feel like a hero, and also gives credit to his co-worker, Shawn Soiland, who drove out to his home to first alert him and his family of the approaching flames, and also to representatives of Cresta Enterprises Inc., Northwest Construction Inc., and Ghilotti Construction, who faced down the wildfire in their water trucks. “I’m just an ordinary guy helping

out,” Lindsay says. “I’m just thankful that there’s a bunch of water guys that got their trucks, filled up, and went out and helped the firemen. I just think I was in the right place at the right time, and everything was in my favor. I’m glad I was able to help out.” Impromptu heroics were commonplace as emergency service personnel couldn’t mobilize fast enough to stay ahead of the flames, and in the fire’s aftermath company resources were pressed into service to help clear roads and assist with hydro-seeding to protect denuded hillsides. Government paperwork and red tape were minimized as the county enlisted help from private companies such as BoDean into service helping with the disaster. “This whole thing was so overwhelmingly big that everybody grabbed any resource that they could, to try to get things opened up and back to some kind of normalcy,” BoDean’s Cleaver recalled. Even after the fire was put down, there was plenty of recovery work to do, restoring utilities and reopening roads. “We grabbed an excavator, a backhoe and two haul

trucks to help them get the road opened up,” Cleaver said of a main artery from northern Napa County into Santa Rosa. “It had been closed for almost two weeks, so we ended up putting our resources and our guys, who weren’t able to work at the quarry, kind of working for the county at that point, helping with the equipment, getting the roads cleaned up and opened up.” A post-fire assessment found the fire spared BoDean’s asphalt plant, and the Mark West Quarry sustained minor damage despite the wall of flames that fried the video monitoring system and turned Port-a-potties into melted blobs of plastic. The equipment in the quarry was spared, as was the quarry’s solar array. The Mark West Quarry was said to be the first quarry in the world to fully operate under photo-voltaic solar power when the system was installed in 2011. The asphalt plant was shut down for two days, and had to secure rock from BoDean’s Blue Rock Quarry on Highway 116 in Forestville. Because of regional outages, the Mark West quarry was forced to mobilize three portable generators -- a 2 KV, a 1.5 11

KV and an 800 KV unit – and also communicate via a rented satellite phone while telephone service was knocked out. The company’s sand washing operation at the Mark West Quarry was not able to be utilized, so BoDean reached out to a competitor, Canyon Rock, who Cleaver said “stepped up” and sold them sand so they could resume asphalt production. Beyond business operations, however, the fire took a personal toll on BoDean employees. Company owner Dean Soiland’s Fountaingrove home was destroyed by the fire. Three other BoDean employees were also permanently displaced by the fire, and the company rallied around them, assisting with arranging temporary housing and other assistance. BoDean employees consider themselves relatively lucky compared to some other fire victims. Emergency services and disaster officials are still tallying the damages of what could end up being one of the most costly fires in California history, surpassing blazes that are seared into the state’s history books: The 1991 Oakland Hills Firestorm, the 1970 Laguna Fire, and the 1961 Bel Air Fire. According to the state Department of Insurance, as of Oct. 31, the total costs of insured losses from the October wildfires tops $3 billion, and is expected to climb higher. That figure does not include uninsured losses, including 12

public facilities. Even a fire station was consumed by flames. By the department’s count, the fires damaged or destroyed more than 14,700 homes, 728 businesses, and more than 3,600 private vehicles, commercial vehicles, agricultural equipment and watercraft. The governor declared a state of emergency in the counties of Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Yuba, Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Nevada and Orange. The Atlas Fire, which ravaged parts of Napa and Solano counties, consumed more than 51,000 acres, CAL FIRE estimated, claiming six lives. The cause remains under investigation. The Tubbs Fire, which struck Napa and Sonoma counties, charred 36,432 acres and killed 22. Only the 1933 Griffith Park Fire, which killed 29, and the Oakland Hills Fire, which killed 25, were more deadly. The October fires were so widespread that the Atlas, Tubbs and two others – the Redwood Valley fire (which resulted in eight deaths) and the Cascade Fire (which claimed four lives) made CAL FIRE’s list of Top 20 deadliest fires in state history. At the peak, 11,000 firefighters battled the blazes in different parts of the state, CAL FIRE said. CalAPA member Syar Industries also found themselves at the center of the firestorms, which scorched about 200 acres around their 800-acre quarry in Napa, which also is home to two rock plants and two asphalt plants.

“I’ve never seen anything like this before,” said Syar Plant Manager Rick Tranchina. “It was something else.” As the flames marched toward the quarry complex, Syar employees mobilized to protect the facility. “We took precautions. We disconnected the power to all the plants, and we moved all of our iron down to the floor in an open area, so we were pretty prepared on that end,” Tranchina said. “We also had our water truck on hand at the time the fires were burning back in the hills. There was enough space between the plants and – basically it burned all the unmined areas and all the underlying brush.” While CAL FIRE helicopters made water drops on to the fire line, Syar’s water truck assisted by helping to put out spot fires near the quarry, Tranchina said. One employee who lives in Rhonert Park lost their home to the fire. Syar ended up closing for a week because of the fires, which resulted in the Bay Area Air Quality Management District issuing a health advisory due to the high levels of particulate matter in the air. “There were two main reasons we didn’t bring employees in,” Tranchina said. “One was the smoke. The other was, if the fires jumped Highway 12 to Interstate 80, we would have had a problem evacuating our folks who live out there, being able to get them home."

California Asphalt Magazine • 2017 Equipment Issue

Once conditions were considered safe, the plants reopened and immediately were busy filling a backlog of orders, scheduled work and also serving as a staging area for federal disaster response authorities. “Right now FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency) is on site, and they are using one of our areas here to inspect haul trucks that are going out to the affected areas and are hauling debris out,” said Syar

Quality Control Manager Mike Herlax. “So they are using Syar Industries as a staging area for trucks and inspections conducted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.” Syar also is assisting with the recovery, which includes accepting asphalt and concrete from the fire-impacted areas for recycling. Next spring, Herlax says, the company will no doubt use bulldozers to carve some new fire breaks around the

perimeter of the quarry as an added precaution. Despite sensational media reports, many areas of the scenic Napa Valley were untouched by the flames, and the area is well on the road to recovery from a fire that Herlax could only describe as “unbelievable.” CA Russell W. Snyder, CAE, is executive director of the California Asphalt Pavement Association (CalAPA).

Hardy & Harper, Inc. displays extreme paving techniques on Elysian Reservoir Water Quality Improvement Project By Brian Hoover - Photography by Kerry Hoover

Asphalt has been utilized as a containment or waterproofing component for as far back as recorded civilization goes. The Mesopotamian Empire used the material to waterproof temple baths and water tanks, while the Sumerians produced and utilized asphalt for caulking and waterproofing ships in 6000 B.C. The Egyptians also used it as a sealing component back in 2600 B.C., as did the Greeks and Romans in everything from baths and walls to aqueducts and reservoirs. In our modern civilization, asphalt is being employed in reservoirs across the United States to provide fresh, clean drinking water to millions. California has been using asphalt liners in dams and reservoirs up north in places like the East Bay Municipal Utility District since the 1950s, and it has been used by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California for the past four decades. What makes asphalt such a sensible choice for use in hydraulic structures is that it is impervious to water, but it does beg the question, “is it safe for drinking water?” Chemists and engineers have studied and tested asphalt liners for many years to ensure that it is indeed an environmentally safe containment method. One fact of interest that they point out is that although asphalt is petroleum based, it does not always behave or react in the same manner as crude oil. For example, there is a surprisingly long list of products that contain petroleum, like toothpaste, shampoo, balloons, ice cube 14

trays and other plastics, and even edible products like aspirin. Besides dams and reservoirs, the fish hatchery industry has also been using asphalt-lined rearing ponds since the 1980s. These asphalt liners are well-known for allowing fish and game experts to monitor the habitat and provide an environmentally clean environment. Water pipes that provide potable drinking water are also lined with asphalt binders, as are hazardous waste sites, in order to prevent tainted rainwater from leaching into the water table. Organizations like The Marine Science Institute (MSI) have conducted studies on the impact of runoff from asphalt pavement. In their 1997 report, the institute concluded that pollutants from stormwater runoff were associated with vehicle emissions and other extenuating elements like crankcase oil drippings, and other vehicle emissions, and not with the pavements themselves. MSI further found that that there was virtually no difference in upstream versus downstream heavy metal concentrations and

further that polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons were not found in pavement stormwater runoff. For a full, in-depth look at this topic, please visit the Asphalt Pavement Alliance website (http://www.asphaltroads.org/ assets/_control/content/files/ cleanerwater.pdf) and read their piece on “Cleaner Water With Asphalt Pavements.” Reservoirs are built and utilized in areas that experience extreme drought and flooding. California is one of those volatile habitats where rivers and humanmade basins can go from dry as a bone to speeding floodwaters in just a matter of hours. This fact brought about the need for the construction of water storage facilities across the state. Agencies like the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) spend a lot of time, money and other resources in the planning and design of [ Continued on page 16]

reservoirs. Many critical factors and considerations go into this process, including durability, impermeability, weather resistance, and flexibility. With this in mind, many agencies and engineers turn to asphalt for their liner systems. Asphalt can prevent seepage, allow for erosion control, absorb loading stress and even provide drainage. DWR, in particular, has reported that asphalt allows for simple leak detection and seepage recovery because it is both flexible and impervious to water. They have stated that asphalt liners provide a durable and cost-effective solution when compared to other more conventional lining systems. They further emphasize its usefulness when the liner must provide a durable surface for heavy equipment that may intermittently enter the reservoir for maintenance. There are more than 1,400 dams and over 1,300 reservoirs in California, and many of these above ground reservoirs have been built or rehabilitated with asphalt liners. The list of reservoirs with asphalt liners is long, with examples such as, Devil’s Canyon Reservoir in San Bernardino County, with a 19-inch-thick asphalt liner that can hold 800 acre-feet of water. There is also the 1,159 acrefeet Tehachapi East Afterbay in the Eastern Mojave Desert that is lined with 3 inches of a dense grade hydraulic mix using a composite liner system, and protected by a 0.1-inch layer of mastic asphalt. There is the Patterson Reservoir in Livermore, where the existing open graded asphalt liner was replaced with a three-inch overlay of permeable asphalt (MS-12, Gradation D), installed over the entire existing liner with newly constructed asphalt 16

on the interior slopes. The Dyer Reservoir is also located in Livermore, where DWR also installed a permeable asphalt liner. In Newport Beach, there is the San Joaquin Reservoir, which was built in 1966 and provided drinking water to seven cities. This reservoir received a new asphalt liner and reopened in 2005 to serve as a recycled watershed used for irrigation purposes. The Elysian Reservoir Water Quality Improvement Project is currently in the final stages, beginning in September 2015 and scheduled for completion by the end of this year. Steve P. Rados partnered with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (DWP) on this $18,232,560 project that completely reconstructed the Elysian Reservoir. The job called for the installation of 950 linear feet of 36” and 40” welded steel pipe that will serve as the new bypass line. The general contractor also excavated 9,000 cubic yards of dirt to make room

for the new retention basin, poured three cast-in-place valve control vaults, all while performing selective demolition on the aging inlet and outlet structures. Steve P. Rados also completed several electrical and mechanical upgrades and finished the job by adding a floating cover. During all of this work, the reservoir received a new asphalt liner, after all of the old pavement was removed with grinding machines. The finishing touches included a new fence and landscaping on the side of the reservoir that faces the I-10 Freeway. Elysian Park is the second largest park in Los Angeles, and it also has the distinct honor of being the oldest park in Los Angeles, dating back to 1886. The Elysian Reservoir was built at Elysian Park in 1903 and eventually reconstructed and enlarged in 1943. It was drained in December 2007 due to Bromate contamination and then reopened June 2008 after being cleaned and refilled. You may remember seeing in the news in 2012 where Elysian Reservoir was one of a few reservoirs that received black plastic “shade balls” in the

California Asphalt Magazine • 2017 Equipment Issue

hundreds of thousands in a relatively successful attempt at deflecting the sun and heat to better control the Bromate contamination issues. The balls were removed from the 7 acre reservoir in 2015 when the improvement project began, and a rubberized cover will take its place when the reservoir is complete and refilled. Elysian Reservoir is a 7 acre above-ground facility that serves around 300,000 people in the Downtown Los Angeles area. The reservoir was previously paved with asphalt around 40 years ago and the time had come to resurface the entire basin. Steve P. Rados subcontracted this portion of the work on the Elysian Reservoir Water Quality Improvement Project to Hardy & Harper, Inc. (Hardy & Harper) out of Santa Ana. Justin Dooley was the Superintendent in charge for Hardy & Harper, and he took care of getting everything set up logistically and technically for this project. “Our first job was to come in and grind off 3 inches of the existing asphalt from the Elysian Reservoir. Sounds fairly simple, except for the fact that we were working with 52 percent slopes at the very top of the reservoir,” says Dooley. “To get the four-foot wide profiling machine up and down the steep grade, we made use of Cat side-boom dozers and utilized the reel cable to pull the machine up and then ease it back down the slope. We also used track skid steer loaders with grinding attachments at the top and then additional skid steer loaders with push broom attachments to shoot the grindings down to the bottom of the reservoir for loading.” After the asphalt was carefully removed and exported out to a recycling yard, Hardy & Harper began the process of installing three new inches of conventional

modified B 3/4" PG 70-10 hot mix asphalt (HMA) on the reservoir floor and slopes. “We made use of the same three Cat sideboom dozers with reels to pull our Carlson parking lot style paver and two rollers up and down the slopes,” says Dooley. “We faced a true challenge with the two rollers however. We put them in tow mode (free wheel mode) and pulled and released the rollers up and down the slopes.” According to Dooley, the main problem they faced was that the rollers wanted to push the asphalt down the slope instead of compacting in place. “We had to work on some techniques that would minimize or eliminate the tearing of asphalt pavement, and so we got together with our quality control team, and they came up with a solution,” says Dooley. “The solution was found

California Asphalt Magazine • 2017 Equipment Issue

in letting the material sit a bit longer and cool down, which is not a typical methodology. Once the asphalt cooled to around 200 degrees, we began a swift compaction process, and that worked out great.” Dooley points out that at 320 degrees the asphalt would just move right down the hill because of just how steep the slopes were on this particular project. “Most reservoir projects have slopes at around 30 to 35 percent, this was 52 percent which would be considered extreme paving conditions for any asphalt contractor, anywhere in the world,” says Dooley. “Elysian was our first reservoir-paving project, but we now have another one going in Palos Verdes and one more for MWD in Bel-Air, with even more out to bid or scheduled later next year.” Hardy & Harper faced a couple of other minor challenges on the Elysian Reservoir Project, like fabricating an extended hopper to hold the asphalt while paving downhill and importing the asphalt material to the general work area via wheel loaders. “We used our wheel loaders to bring in the hot asphalt material from the trucks and then dumped the material into a big staging hopper. We then began loading our Carlson paving machine with the same wheel loaders,” says Dooley. “We even manufactured an oversized hopper with a large front lip for the paving machine so that it was capable of retaining the hot asphalt while paving down the 52 percent slopes.” Additionally, Hardy & Harper fabricated special mounts on the back of the paver and rollers for the cable reel to hook on to. The hot mix asphalt was supplied to Hardy & Harper by Blue Diamond Materials. The project consumed more than 7,000 tons of asphalt, which 17

according to Dooley should keep the reservoir going strong for another 40 years. “We paved 60,000 square feet on the reservoir floor and 280,000 square feet on the slopes,” says Dooley. “Blue Diamond Materials is great to work with, and they have a lot of experience with reservoir paving projects. We wanted to go with a supplier with experience and Blue Diamond has always delivered an exceptional product.” Hardy & Harper’s introduction into reservoir paving will go down in the books as a great success. “It was a tough job because of the steep grade, but our guys did a great job on the final product, and that made the LADWP happy, so all in all our first reservoir job was both challenging and successful,” says Dooley. “I want to take a moment to thank Steve P. Rados, the LADWP and of course our

entire crew of professionals that worked so very hard to make this project a success.” Hardy & Harper started out in 1946 as a small asphalt patchand-repair company. Through the years and generations, they have become experts at working with and placing asphalt on both large and small-scale projects.

Eagle Crusher Company, Inc. — Big company products and engineering backed by the service and support of a 100-year, family owned business BY BRIAN HOOVER

Above: Eagle Crusher Company, Inc. employees proudly standing in front of a closed circuit portable screening plant at their headquarters in Galion, Ohio.

The founder of Eagle Crusher Company, Inc. (Eagle Crusher), C.L. Woods, started out as a distributor of Eagle Tractors in Ohio in the early 1900s. A common practice at this time was to take the cobblestones tilled from farm fields and put them along the side of local dirt roads. Woods had a vision of creating a small jaw crusher mounted on the front of a tractor that could crush the stone and then use it for road material. Eagle Tractor was not interested and so Woods decided in 1915 to go out on his own and form Eagle Crusher in Kenton, Ohio to begin manufacturing his imagined jaw crusher design. Woods continued to innovate and expand on his crusher patent and eventually sold 25 percent of the company to Ralph Cobey to aid in growth and expansion. Cobey purchased the remaining 20

75 percent when Woods retired in 1952, and the operations were then moved to Galion, Ohio. Things began to take off in the 1960s, with Eagle Crusher winning numerous contracts for portable jaw crusher plants, including a very large order from the U.S. Military for hundreds of units during the Vietnam War. It was during this period that Eagle Crusher was sold to Harsco Corp., but when it was clear that commercial sales were being ignored, Cobey purchased the company back in 1970 and essentially hit the restart button at that point. The company began anew with just two employees and slowly began to grow under Cobey’s revitalized leadership and vision. Susanne Cobey became Eagle Crusher’s 10th employee in 1974, and with her assistance, the company continued to grow at a

determined, steady pace. The 70s and 80s would bring more growth with the acquisition of Austin-Western Crushers and Diamond Iron Works crushers. The focus at this time was on aggregate and coal crushers until a coal strike in 1983 caused a virtual sales drought. A new direction was necessary, and Cobey found that by answering the call for jaw crushers that can process asphalt and concrete materials. This need was met through the manufacturing of horizontal shaft impactors, and in 1984, Eagle Crusher built its first crusher to serve the asphalt and concrete recycling markets. Mr. Cobey eventually retired from day-to-day operations in 1990 and one of the first duties Susanne Cobey would do as the company president, would be to acquire Stedman Machine Company in

Aurora, Indiana. Then in 1994, Susanne and Eagle Crusher began manufacturing their own HSI impactor (the Ultramax), designed specifically for the recycling market. Eagle Crusher continued into the 2000s to become a world leader in the manufacturing and innovation of portable crushing systems. Today, they continue to manufacture a complete line of heavy-duty impact crushers, portable crushing and screening plants, jaw crushers, and conveyors for the concrete, asphalt, aggregate and recycle markets. Dan Friedman is the marketing manager for Eagle Crusher, headquartered in Galion, Ohio and he further explains what it means to be a part of Team Eagle. “The family-owned nature of our business means that we also take care of our customers and treat them as a part of the Eagle Crusher family,” says Friedman. “When you own an Eagle Crusher or any part of our equipment offerings, you become an integral part of Team

Eagle. We support our equipment pretty much forever, and we have jaw crushers from the 1940s still working out in the field today.” To further illustrate his point, Friedman points out that Eagle Crusher offers a lifetime rotor warranty on all of their horizontal shaft impactors. “If the rotor fails, we will replace it. Nobody else is offering anything close to this kind of warranty,” says Friedman. “We are also the service leader in our industry because we work side by side with our customers to find the solution that works best for their unique needs, rather than push them into a product that we may have in stock. Maybe they need a modified screening system or different metallurgies. We are here to get things like that done, and this is what separates us from the other multinational companies.” Eagle Crusher has a growing list of distributors located throughout the United States and abroad. In California, they have two wellknown and respected companies representing their product line.

California Asphalt Magazine • 2017 Equipment Issue

Butler Justice, Inc. in Anaheim is their Southern California dealer and Compass Equipment in Oroville is their Northern California representative. According to Friedman, Eagle Crusher’s primary product line is portable and stationary rock crushing equipment. They manufacturer and distribute jaws and horizontal shaft impactors as part of a fully inclusive plant for crushing concrete, asphalt, and aggregates, primarily for the recycling, CND, and asphalt industry. Their products are also available from their trusted distributors on a bare equipment rental basis. Eagle Crusher has earned their world-class reputation for innovative research, excellence in manufacturing and delivering quality products through their years of putting the customer first philosophy. “Our over-the-top commitment to our customers is why Eagle Crusher has become the No. 1 manufacturer of portable impact crushers worldwide,” says Friedman. 21

Above: Eagle Crusher Company, Inc. E-Plant high production, triple-deck screening/crushing system is capable of producing as many as five separate products. “It’s all about keeping our customers at peak production and profitable, with the industry's very best service and support. According to Friedman, being a member of Team Eagle comes with a long list of benefits. These include, but are not limited to on-site start-up training and assistance, special financing, on-going applications support, 24-hour emergency hotline, sameday parts shipping on genuine Team Eagle quality parts, to name just a few. Their product line includes portable open and closed-circuit impactor plants and crushing and screening systems that allow Eagle Crusher to combine their popular portable or skid-mounted UltraMax® impactors and jaw plants with Eagle Crusher’s screening plants to create a wide variety of systems. Their screening plants and system offerings include the E-Plant, which according to Friedman is the industry’s only true high production, triple-deck screening/crushing system on one chassis, and transferable in one pull for the aggregate, asphalt and recycle industries. This unit is designed to process as many as five separate products, including three spec products at one time. The MaxRAP™ System is a stationary system that is 22

typically utilized at an asphalt plant facility for crushing and precise screening of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement. The RAP system easily integrates with any asphalt plant automation system, ensuring quick and easy switching from top to base material, while meeting the producer’s most stringent needs. Eagle Crusher also manufactures and distributes secondary impact plants that can be ideally placed behind a primary crusher for further material reduction. Friedman continues to report that both American-made Eagle and Eagle Austin-Western jaw crushers process abrasive hard rock utilizing the time-tested overhead eccentric design that eliminates premature failures, increases component life with less down time, and improved reliability and production. Their impactor track units are designed for ultra-mobile crushing without sacrificing power or production out on the job site. “Our equipment is preferred by several state agencies, including Pennsylvania, who raised their RAP percentage in mixes from 30 percent to 35 percent, if the batch plant in question is using an Eagle Crusher system,” says Friedman. “Our equipment is designed with the asphalt producer in mind. Our solid steel sculptured

rotor is better at handling asphalt recycling and tweaking the asphalt bonds between the individual materials without exposing as much white rock in the process versus other hub rotor designs. We currently have an E-Plant producing in California, and it produces well above our standard 1200 system. It is all about what a client is looking for, and we have the perfect solution available." Eagle Crusher is a new member of the California Asphalt Pavement Association, and according to Friedman, they joined for a variety of reasons. “We decided to increase our presence in regional and statewide associations because we feel that there is a lot of great work being done on this level,” says Friedman. “It is important that we remain in constant communication with those that have their hand on the pulse of their industry in respective territories. We believe that this is just one additional way that Eagle Crusher will continue to grow and prosper in our targeted business niches.” For more information on Eagle Crusher, please visit www. eaglecrusher.com or call their West Coast territory manager at (916) 778-8574.

Author of historic $52 billion transportation bill addresses CalAPA fall conference State Sen. Jim Beall, sporting a scarf resembling an asphalt road, was in no mood for criticism of his landmark legislation that will repair and maintain thousands of miles of pavements in California over the next decade. Delivering the keynote address on Oct. 25 to kick off the CalAPA Fall Asphalt Pavement Conference & Equipment Expo in Sacramento, Beall stressed the moral imperative of keeping roads safe and well-maintained, which will save lives and not saddle future generations with huge repair bills. He also thanked the industry for its help in persuading the Legislature to act after decades of neglect of the state’s roadways. The author of SB1 warned,

however, that some opponents of the measure passed by the Legislature and signed into law by the governor earlier this year could still undo the plan even as billions worth of road repair work was to start construction in the coming year. He described his bill, which will generate more than $5.2 billion a year over 10 years, as "the largest single infrastructure legislation in the history of the state of California." The bill was intended to address decades of neglect of the state's roadways and rapidly escalating costs, which has resulted in some of the worst pavement conditions in the nation. Beall noted that the measure includes the first state fuel tax increase since 1994.

"Now there's going to be a lot of work and many roads to pave for years to come," he said. "This is not a bond. This is not a one-time thing. It's an annual thing -- it goes on and on and on." Beall, chairman of the Senate Transportation & Housing Committee, headed up an impressive lineup of speakers for the two-day Fall Asphalt Pavement Conference & Equipment Expo held Oct. 25 and 26 at the Doubletree Hotel in Sacramento. More than 200 industry and agency personnel attended to hear technical presentations, policy updates and a riveting leadership and partnering talk by Larry Bonine, former Arizona Department of Transportation chief and noted

Keynote speaker The Honorable Senator Jim Beall, Chairman, State Senate Transportation & Housing Committee & SB1 author talked about the Road Repair and Accountability Act.

Speaker Larry Bonine, President Pinnacle Leadership Group gave a presentation on leadership and partnering on success strategies for effective relationship-building and conflict resolution.

Featured speaker Ashley N. Jackson, Director of Government Affairs, National Asphalt Pavement Association spoke about president’s promise to deliver a $1 trillion infrastructure improvement program.

John Harvey, Ph.D., P.E., Director, University of California Pavement Research Center gave two presentations, first on environmental research on lifecycle impacts of cool pavements in California, the second a technical presentation on long-life asphalt pavements.

David Mensching, Ph.D., Asphalt Pavement Engineer, Federal Highway Administration gave a presentation on performance specifications.

Tony Limas, California Group Quality Manager, Granite Construction leads a break-out session titled, “Specification Limit Development.”

partnering expert. If done right, Bonine said, "Partnering shouldn't be hard." Presentations delivered at the conference have been posted on CalAPA's website. During Beall's opening remarks, the longtime legislator said fixing roads must be addressed now so future generations of Californians will not be saddled with a big repair bill and pavements that are falling apart. "We are not going to pass on the debt to them of crumbling infrastructure, right? It's almost a moral issue," he said. "You don't want to leave it to your kids, your future community, expenses of

crumbling infrastructure that we should have, could have, taken care of when we were making decisions. That's kind of wrong to let a child have that burden on them." He also emphasized very bluntly the safety issue posed by pavements and other infrastructure that are not maintained in a state of good condition. "When you don't repair things, and things are falling apart, people die," he said. "There are more accidents, more crashes. When things aren't maintained properly, people are going to die."

California Asphalt Magazine • 2017 Equipment Issue

Looking ahead, he also stressed the importance of good roadways as the foundation of a sound economy and all other forms of transportation, including a future that is likely to include autonomous vehicles. "Can you imagine how an autonomous vehicle would work on a street that had 12inch potholes in it? Would an autonomous vehicle work? I don't think so," he said. "So what ever you do with the future, the base things you have to do is you have to repair the roads. You can't have transit without repairing the roads. You can't have bicycles 41

without repairing the roads. You can't have autonomous vehicles without repairing the roads. You can't eliminate congestion or eliminate air pollution, you can't do that without repairing the roads." Despite the many benefits SB1 will bring to all Californians, Beall, warned that some persistent opposition, including a potential repeal aimed at the ballot box, could undo all the hard work. "There are some dark clouds on the horizon," he said ominously,

noting that SB1 opponents threatening to put a repeal measure on the ballot have yet to put forward a viable alternative for maintaining California's infrastructure. CalAPA and a broad coalition of other industry and labor organizations have gone on record as opposing any effort to repeal SB1. Beall also took time during his remarks to thank CalAPA and other industry partners for the many years of support that led to the passage of SB1.


"This was very difficult and I have to applaud this community, your organization, for contributing," he said. "You were wonderful. You did a great job helping us. We appreciate it. The Legislature appreciates everything you're saying." The Spring Asphalt Pavement Conference & Equipment Expo will be held April 25 & 26, 2018 at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario.
