The architectural design is quite interesting, featuring mostly glass with injections of color strips that glow at night. There are four connecting bridges and an underground tunnel that connects the old and new loading docks for material movement.

Federal financial instruments and initiatives like a proposed national “Infrastructure Bank” designed to attract private investment into transportation infrastructure projects should be included in the new highway/transit bill, Pete Ruane, president of the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA), told the Senate Commerce, Science & Transportation Committee July 20. He cautioned lawmakers, however, not to think that such initiatives alone could solve the transportation funding problem caused by the constrained revenue stream into the Highway Trust Fund.

see HOSPITAL page 36

Ruane said private investors would likely not seek to be partners in the vast majority of transportation improvement projects needed in the states. Market experience, he said, shows public-private partnerships (P3s) generally serve a small, yet very important, niche — very expensive projects that add highway capacity in congested urban areas and can be tolled to provide a return on private investment. Addressing the nearly two-year delayed surface transportation bill, Ruane said the biggest obstacle to moving forward is the Highway Trust Fund’s see BANK page 87

A Canada-based gold development company is heavily investing its resources into a South Carolina mine that was once a target of General Sherman in the Civil War. The historic Haile Mine in Lancaster County — one of the first operating gold mines in the United States — was purchased by Romarco Minerals in 2007. Romarco is hoping advancements in technology could lead to gold production once more, although the company is facing a significant delay. “Romarco has a $30 million drilling budget for 2011, most of which will be spent at Haile for exploration,” explained Jim Arnold, chief operating officer of Romarco. “Some drilling will also be done at other regional targets and some condemnation drilling at Haile. Right now lab construction is under way and the design for the mill is well advanced.” see GOLD page 34

Trekker Tractor Holds Triple Threat Rodeo

T

rekker Tractor Co. held a Case Triple Threat Rodeo July 15 at its Tampa, Fla., branch. Across the United States and Canada, Case dealerships are hosting local Triple Threat Rodeos from April to October 2011. One winner from each local rodeo and five wildcard competitors will advance to the North American Championship Event to be held at the World of Concrete Show in Las Vegas in January 2012. There, a champion will be crowned. First prize will be a 2011 Dodge Ram 2500HD pickup truck and a 2011 Case Construction TR270 compact track loader. Second and third place winners will receive a $5,000 and $2,500 CNH Capital Card, respectively. The winning competitor at each local event will earn a trip for two to the North American Triple Threat Rodeo Championship in Las Vegas, $500 and commemorative Triple Threat Rodeo belt buckle. Local second and third place finishers receive $250 and $100, respectively; a commemorative Triple Threat Rodeo belt buckle and a chance to become one of five Wildcard entries. Case’s Triple Threat Rodeo consists of

three events, which use the Case N Series loader/backhoe, the F Series wheel loader and the Alpha Series skid steer: • Backhoe Bronc Buster — the backhoe is used in a series of obstacles, which includes the use of soccer and tennis balls. • Wheel Loader Roundup — contestants use a wheel loader to pick up various transport bars off their bases and carry/move to other areas across the event space. • Skid Steer Showdown — a bar is attached to the bucket and the contestant must carry two soccer balls (and one floating soccer ball inside of bucket) while maneuvering around cones and through F-assemblies to the final destination, without dropping the soccer balls. In addition to the competition, attendees also were served lunch and had the opportunity to win door prizes and view pieces of equipment that were on display. First place went to Todd Hall, of TCT Construction, with second and third place going to his two sons, Adam and David.

Mark Choate of Haulotte Group was on hand to demonstrate one of the company’s personnel lifts.

Skeet Mizell of Trekker Tractor announces some of the early scores.

Lunch was available as was equipment to look over. The Wheel Loader Roundup started with contestants removing a pipe from a rack.

see TREKKER page 82

The Hall boys, father and sons, took the top three places. (L-R): David, Adam and Todd Hall were the top three finishers. This was the easiest place to put the pipe.

This way of placing the pipe proved much more difficult.

This little spectator studies the competition, readying perhaps for the day he’ll be big enough to play.

David Hall, the third place finisher, gets instruction on the Backhoe Bronc Buster event.

Tar Heel Machinery Survives Tornado, Tough Economy By Cindy Riley CEG CORRESPONDENT

For Penn McMichael and Scott Woody, running a successful heavy equipment rental business centers around these principles — respect, fairness, integrity, all focused around a strong ethical core. “Our operating philosophy is based on the principles of Christ,” said Penn McMichael, co-owner of Tar Heel Machinery. “We do all things through Him as His representative — the Lord is our ‘Boss.’ So we strive to be honest, fair, disclosing all information (good or bad) about the machines we are representing or whatever the case may be.” “Customers keep coming back for our way of doing business,” explained McMichael. “In tough times, they want to deal with someone they trust.” “It’s what we love,” added Woody. “Equipment is something you take pride in working with. There’s a sense of accomplishment in helping to build, tear down and change the world with what we do, especially with our rental fleet. We like to ride to jobs, during and upon completion, to watch the progress. To think our equipment had something to do with building that new hospital, stadium, landfill, stream restoration, environmental cleanup, etc. means a great deal to us.” Not even a powerful tornado last April could keep the company down for long, although that’s something neither owner will ever forget. “The industrial area where our office and shop was located looked like a bomb had gone off for a couple of miles,” Woody recalled. “You could see the tornado’s path cut clearly from one side of Raleigh to the other. Some parts of our building ended up two blocks down the road. Sadly, the tornadoes in North Carolina claimed 30 lives in a matter of a couple of hours. It was one of the worst in our state’s history. Tragically, many lives and businesses were affected and rebuilding is still going on to this day. “Our shop was totally destroyed. We had some loss in the shop with parts and supplies, damage to the service truck, water inside one machine, but it appears we were spared the worst of it. Many businesses on both sides of I-440 had showrooms, warehouses, and retail centers that got demolished. Ironically, we were already looking to start moving to a new facility. In the grand scheme of things, we were sad to have lost our shop, but so fortunate to have found an even better place, where we were meant to be.” Tar Heel Machinery, which buys, sells, rents and repairs excavators, dozers, track trucks, rollers, motorgraders and water see TAR HEEL page 84

Study Proposes ‘Devolution’ of Rural Cat’s On-Highway Road in Va.; Idea Worries Localities Truck Arrives at By Bob Lewis AP POLITICAL WRITER

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) In 1932, with a still-agrarian Virginia struggling through the Great Depression, the General Assembly took over rural or “secondary” roads as a way to help out cash-strapped counties. Now, with the state struggling to find transportation money, local officials believe the state is about to put the budgetary burden back on them. A comprehensive study by George Mason University told in compelling detail how the number of secondary roads listed as deficient has steadily grown as state highway maintenance funding fails to keep pace. In 2007, one-fourth of Virginia’s 48,280 mi. of secondary pavement was deficient. By 2009, the ratio of deficient roads had increased to nearly one-third. Total costs for taking care of all substandard secondary pavement in Virginia is about $1.3 billion, according to a Virginia Department of Transportation estimate. Among the options the study presents prominently for coping with the growing backlog of crumbling byways is “devolution,” or restoring secondary highway responsibilities to the counties. “The ‘devolution’ is in the details,” punned Spotsylvania County Board of Supervisors member Hap Connors, who sees opportunity in the concept if it’s done right, but deeper fiscal woe for counties and local taxpayers if it’s botched. Spotsylvania, where suburbanization is spreading across a still-rural countryside, is already going its own way on some transportation initiatives out of necessity, Connors said. That allows local officials to make land-use decisions free of worrying whether the state will agree and provide the funding. “But ... because of the neglect of the state since 1986 to fix the [transportation] funding formula and revenue stream, we’re playing catch-up with a lot of these roads and we just don’t have the adequate tools to do it in a meaningful way. I can’t just raise the revenue I need,” Connors said. Cities and counties have seen numerous state costs for public schools, public safety and health care shifted onto them in recent years as a General Assembly fearful of increasing taxes coped with a deep recession that sapped state revenues. “They don’t want to raise taxes and they get credit for not raising taxes,” Connors said. But in Spotsylvania, where the county real estate tax rate is 86 cents per $100 of assessed valuation, 40 cents of it pays for unfunded state mandates and obligations. The Virginia Association of Counties wrote in response to a draft of the study that it is “unalterably opposed to any option that would transfer responsibility for the construction and/or maintenance of the secondary road system” to counties. “...Any proposals to shift secondary road construction and

Ring Power Corp.

maintenance funding responsibilities to localities also shifts political liability for unpopular tax increases to local officials,” VaCO said in its four-page rebuttal. Even if existing state funding follows the secondary road construction and maintenance duties back to counties under a possible devolution solution, it would fall far short of what’s needed to bring all the deficient roads up to par. Upkeep needs will increase as will the costs, and real estate taxes — the only tax counties can raise and lower at will — would likely make up the difference, said Neal Menkes, director of fiscal policy for the Virginia Municipal League. “Capitol Square might be the only place in Virginia where inflation is outlawed,” Menkes said. VDOT owns and maintains 95.62 percent of the rural roads in Virginia, a higher ratio than any other state, said Jonathan Gifford, a George Mason University professor of public policy and author of the study. West Virginia is a close second, owning 95.57 percent of its secondary highways, Caterpillar’s first-ever on-highway truck is now availand in Delaware the figure is 93.19 percent, the study says. able through north and central Florida’s Caterpillar “Twenty-five of the states have 15 percent or less of their dealer Ring Power Corp. rural roads owned by the state,” he said.

And local officials don’t have to fret about VDOT bureaucrats and engineers overruling their intentions. “Certainly, there are some downsides in terms of what local governments might think about funding, but they’re also a lot more likely to be able to address it more to their needs,” May said.

Wooldridge Boiling Bowl Model BB-85 pulled scraper, introduced in 1950.

Wooldridge Manufacturing Company Offers Rich History Wooldridge Manufacturing Company founder Mack Wooldridge (1890-1962) was one of the early pioneers of the earthmoving industry. Like R. G. LeTourneau, M. W. Baker, E. W. LaPlant, Roy Choate and Garfield Wood, he saw the utility of attaching a blade to a crawler tractor when tractors were in their infancy. Wooldridge grew up in California, became a mechanic and developed a strong interest in crawler tractors. In the mid 1920s, he opened a dealership for Cletrac tractors in southern California and soon began custom-building hand-operated blades and other attachments for the tractors he sold. He incorporated under the name Mack Wooldridge, Inc., with a head office in Los Angeles, Calif., and a branch in Birmingham, Ala. He also built snowplows for crawlers that he sold to dealers in the Midwest. In the late 1920s, Wooldridge became interested in the

new hydraulic lifting technology that had been developed for dump trucks and saw an application to lift and apply downward pressure on dozer blades. His first hydraulic blade had only one hydraulic cylinder to lift the blade, which was attached to lifting arms by chains and thus could not exert downward pressure. Wooldridge applied for a patent for this design in 1928 and it was awarded in 1931; he would receive over a dozen patents for construction equipment in his lifetime. Wooldridge kept improving his blade design, and soon had a line of hydraulic blades for Cletrac models 20, 30, and 40. Young and Budy recount a story of Wooldridge and his early dozer blades in Endless Tracks in the Woods. In 1928, the U.S. Forest Service held a demonstration of road construction equipment in Santa Barbara, Calif., with a stipula-

tion that only “proven” equipment would be shown. The demonstration was to include a tractor-drawn road grader, gas-powered shovel, and several horse-drawn Fresno scrapers. Forest Service engineer Ted Flynn, another dozer blade pioneer, unofficially invited Wooldridge and asked him to bring one of his Cletracs with a hydraulic blade. Unannounced, Wooldridge drove the tractor into the show grounds and proceeded to show how well the dozer could perform, while most of the other machines either broke down or performed poorly. The officials at the demonstration were duly impressed, and the event received favorable reviews in the newspapers and trade journals. Because of their horsepower to weight ratios, differential controlled steering, and smaller size, Cletrac tractors had become the favored make in forestry and agriculture, and Wooldridge had an early edge on supplying blades for them. The Forest Service in particular purchased large numbers of Cletracs with Wooldridge blades for building trails and opening new roads in the National Forests. During the early 1930s, what was now called the Wooldridge Company expanded its blade line to fit other crawler makes, and began building towed implements including rippers and scrapers. Around 1931, Wooldridge was contracted by Continental Roll & Steel Foundry Company to build scrapers at its Los Angeles plant. In 1935, two of the Wooldridge employees responsible for building Wooldridge Model RS3 three-shank pulled ripper.

Petersburg Steel Mill Produces Sheet Piling for Panama Canal PETERSBURG, Va. (AP) A Petersburg steel mill is playing a role in major upgrades to the Panama Canal. Steel sheet piling produced by Gerdau Ameristeel’s mills in Petersburg and Midlothian, Texas, is being used in the expansion of one of the world’s most vital shipping paths. The $5.25 billion project will double the capacity of the canal, allowing more ships and larger ships to traverse it. “It is one of those projects that doesn’t come along too often, to be able to participate in the expansion of such a notable feature on the globe,” said David Maedgen, manager of piling sales at Gerdau Ameristeel. “There is so much international traffic that goes through that canal.” The Richmond-Times Dispatch reported that the Petersburg mill produced 1,200 tons of sheet piling the company manufactured for the Panama Canal expansion. Steel sheet piling is a manufactured construction product with connections that interlock to form a continuous wall. The materials will be used for the excavation of the canal’s Pacific access channel and the construction of the Borinquen Dam, a key part of the expansion. The process of moving the steel from the Virginia and Texas facilities to the site in Panama involved 161 rail cars, four oceangoing vessels and 880 truckloads. The Petersburg mill has 415 employees and the capacity to produce 1 million tons of steel per year.

scrapers under this contract were hired by Bucyrus-Erie to design its new line of scrapers and dozer blades. On its end, Continental produced straight and angle dozers for crawler tractors under the patents held by Wooldridge. Wooldridge received his first patent for a towed scraper in 1934, and was soon offering them in several sizes. To compete with LeTourneau’s Carryall scraper line, Wooldridge adopted the name “Digancary.” Digancary scraper capacities ranged from 2½ to 12 yds.; the two largest models could be

A 30-yard dump wagon with 16 wheels also was offered. Unlike most of the other blade and scraper makers of this era, Wooldridge did not become an allied supplier of attachments to a crawler tractor manufacturer. Wooldridge was one of the first equipment makers to offer a training program for operators. In 1931, he started a school for bulldozer operators under the direction of the Civilian Conservation Corps, which was either constructing or funding construction of public works projects all over the country. In 1938, Wooldridge partnered with Harold Guzman to form the Wooldridge Manufacturing Company, and opened a new factory in Sunnyvale, Calif. Guzman was listed as

Speedway Developer Eyes Meeting With Ark. Officials FORSYTH, Mo. (AP) The man who has faced strong criticism for his plans to build a $150 million motor speedway near Branson in southern Missouri will meet with Arkansas economic development officials to discuss options for moving the project to that state, his spokesman said. Russell Cook, of Hollister, Mo., has cleared about 70 acres about 2 mi. (3.2 km) from the Missouri-Arkansas border in Taney County for the proposed 1.25-mi. (2 km) track, with plans to bring NASCAR races to the track after it is completed in 2013. He planned to meet with the Arkansas Economic Development Commission on July 15, spokesman Nathan Adams said. “We will not deny that we have a planned meeting with Arkansas state officials in Little Rock,” Adams told The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on July 12. He said Cook signed a nondisclosure agreement with the Arkansas economic commission, which requested financial information about the speedway proposal.

Scott Hardin, a spokesman for the Arkansas agency, told the newspaper he couldn’t comment. The project is planned for an 800-acre site near Ridgedale, Mo., about 2 mi. from the Big Cedar Lodge on Table Rock Lake. Several opponents, including Johnny Morris, founder of Bass Pro Shops, say the project would bring too much noise and traffic to the scenic Ozark region. Supporters contend the track would bring much needed jobs and economic development to the area. Cook said he intends to build the speedway in Missouri but he has to consider all his options. “I’ll be honest, because I’ve lived up here all my life I’d like to see it up here,” Cook said. “But it has got to be a business decision. We’re going to build a racetrack. Whether it’s here or down the road a little farther south has yet to be determined.” Cook hinted at several possible locations in Arkansas, most in the central region of the state.

About 400 people attended a six-hour public hearing of the Taney County Planning and Zoning Commission July 11 in Forsyth. The commissioners were scheduled to vote on the proposal July 18. Bob Atchley, Taney County’s planning administrator, said based on applause for different comments made at the hearing, the crowd seemed evenly split on the proposed racetrack. Cook did not attend the meeting. Bryan Wade of Springfield, Mo., an attorney representing Big Cedar Lodge, noted Cook’s previous unsuccessful attempts to develop projects in the area. Land was cleared for Tuscany on the Lake, a condominium development on Table Rock Lake, and TanStone Plaza, a commercial development in Branson, but no buildings have been constructed. “The land has been scarred and no development has occurred,” Wade said. Wade also said Cook has not been forthcoming about funding sources for the proposed speedway.

Cook has said he has funding lined up but has declined to reveal the sources. Tom Gammon, director of construction and development for Branson Sports Entertainment Complex — the name of the proposed speedway — said the 1.9 million people who live within 100 mi. of the proposed site would provide enough business to make the track and adjacent development profitable. Noise was one of the main concerns expressed at the meeting. Representatives of HNTB Corp. of Kansas City, Mo., which is working for the developer, said noise from the track would be 30 to 45 decibels by the time it reached Big Cedar Lodge. Keith Crawford, who lives a half-mile from the proposed track, said the noise during a race would be 60 to 70 decibels at his house. “That’s approximately five times louder than the normal ambient level and three times louder than conversations,” he said.

Projects Halted Due to Congress Failing Spanning Oregon Inlet… to Renew FAA’s Operating Authority NCDOT Awards By Joan Lowy ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON (AP) Dozens of airport construction projects across the country are on hold and thousands of federal employees are not working because Congress failed to pass legislation to keep the Federal Aviation Administration operating, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said July 25. The FAA’s operating authority expired at midnight July 22, forcing a partial agency shutdown. Dozens of stop-work orders were issued over the weekend for projects to build and modernize airport control towers, as well as other improvement projects, officials said. Many of the airport projects are designed to improve the efficiency of air travel and reduce congestion. “Because Congress didn’t do its work, FAA programs and thousands of public and private sector jobs are in jeopardy,” LaHood told reporters in a conference call. He called on lawmakers to quickly pass legislation to restart shuttered operations. But all indications July 25 pointed to a prolonged shutdown. Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, said there are no negotiations between the House and Senate to resolve the dispute, and House Republican leaders are determined to hold their position. “I have no idea when we’ll open the FAA again,” he said. Air traffic controllers have remained on the job, as well as FAA employees who inspect the safety of planes and test pilots. But airlines’ authority to collect federal ticket taxes has expired, costing FAA about $30 million a day in lost revenue, Babbitt said. That money goes into an aviation trust fund. The fund “has a healthy balance now, but that would be depleted in fairly rapid order” without congressional action, he said. Nearly 4,000 FAA employees in 35 states, and the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, who are paid from the trust fund have been furloughed. About $2.5 billion in federal airport construction grants cannot be processed because workers who handle those grants have been furloughed, officials said. That, in turn, has halted construction projects, putting hundreds

of other people employed by those jobs out of work. “This is simply going to slow down our ability to expand to keep up with growing traffic demands,” FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt said. For example, work was scheduled to begin July 23 on a $6 million project to demolish a control tower at New York’s LaGuardia Airport. But the Paul J. Scariano construction firm laid off 40 workers who were assigned to the demolition project, leaving the partly dismantled tower unattended, said company vice president Luca Toscano. “I’m worried about the planes underneath,” Toscano said. “There’s nobody up there keeping an eye on the equip-

have resolved most of the differences between the bills, but no progress has been made on a half dozen other issues. Among their key differences are air service subsidies for rural communities and a Republican proposal that would make it more difficult for airline workers to unionize. Republicans say Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., is insisting that a labor provision in the House bill sought by the airline industry be dropped before negotiations can continue. The labor provision would overturn a National Mediation Board rule approved last year that allows airline and railroad employees to form a union

ment or scaffolding or anything. If we get a bad storm, a piece of wood or something might go flying.” Work also has stopped for new control towers at airports in Las Vegas; Palm Springs, Calif.; Oakland, Calif.; Wilkes-Barre, Pa.; Kalamazoo, Mich., and Gulfport, Miss., among other projects, officials said. At Oakland International Airport, 60 people working on the facility’s new $31 million control tower were told not to report to work on July 25, said Rosemary Barnes, an airport spokeswoman. Barnes said the construction workers would not get paid until the issue was resolved Approval also is on hold for airports to receive a new generation of super large airliners, including permission for Boeing 747-800s to begin servicing San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Newark, N.J., and Huntsville, Ala., according to the FAA. Long-term funding authority for the FAA expired in 2007. Unable to agree on new long-term funding legislation for the agency, Congress has kept the FAA operating through a series of 20 short-term extension bills. The Senate passed a long-term bill in February and the House approved a different version in April. Lawmakers

by a simple majority of those voting. Under the old rule, workers who didn’t vote were treated as “no” votes. Republicans complain that the new rule reverses 75 years of precedent to favor labor unions. Democrats and union officials say the change puts airline and railroad elections under the same rules required for unionizing all other companies. The White House warned in March that President Barack Obama might veto the bill if the GOP labor provision is retained. In mid July, the House passed what would be the 21st extension of FAA’s operating authority. But this time Republicans included provisions in the bill that would eliminate $16.5 million in subsidies for air service to 10 small airports that are less than 90 miles from a hub airport and three other remote airports in Montana, Nevada and New Mexico where subsidies average more than $1,000 per passenger. Senate Democrats say the House is trying to force them to accept policies that haven’t been negotiated. They blocked passage of the House extension bill. Senate Republicans then blocked passage of a Democratic extension that doesn’t include the air services subsidies provision.

$216M Contract for Bonner Bridge By Michael Biesecker ASSOCIATED PRESS

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) The N.C. Department of Transportation awarded a $216 million contract July 26 for the design and construction of a new span across Oregon Inlet to replace the aging Bonner Bridge. The existing 2.7-mi. (4.3 km) long bridge connects Hatteras Island to the mainland. It was built in 1962 and has exceeded its expected lifespan. The new contract comes after more than two decades of debate and environmental studies. “We’ve spent 20 years working hard to make a new bridge a reality, and it’s exciting to reach this step in the process,” said Gene Conti, the state’s transportation secretary. “We look forward to starting construction on this critically important project, which will provide a safer, more reliable way for residents and visitors to get from Hatteras Island to the mainland.” Design work is expected to begin in the next few weeks, with construction scheduled to start by the end of 2012. Under the contract, the new bridge is to open by the spring of 2015, with the old bridge demolished by the following year. Bonner Bridge has long been criticized as too narrow and ill-suited to handle the annual crush of summertime vacation traffic headed to the Outer Banks. DOT has spent $26.5 million in the last 10 years on the old bridge to fix deterioration caused by constant exposure to salt, strong currents and wind. Conti awarded the contract to PCL Civil Constructors Inc. and HDR Engineering Inc. of the Carolinas. The companies’ bid was the cheapest of the three firms competing for the contract, but it also received the lowest technical score from the state officials who reviewed the proposals. Specifications for the job require the new bridge to be built of stainless steel and corrosion resistant concrete, while having minimal impacts on Bodie Island and the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge during construction. State engineers expect the span to last more than 100 years. Greer Beaty, a DOT spokeswoman, said the $216 million project is the largest construction contract funded through state and federal tax dollars in North Carolina going back several years. “People have been looking forward to this for a very long time,” Beaty said. “This is a big deal, with a massive economic impact and critical to the tourism economy on the coast.”

Historic Mine Has Not Been Worked Since Early 1990s GOLD from page 1

Attempts to reopen the gold mine, however, have hit a roadblock. Federal regulators say Romarco Minerals must now prepare a full environmental impact statement that will set the project back one year. In trying to reopen the Haile Mine and extract bits of gold from rocks dug out of a pit nearly 900 ft. (274 m) deep and a mile wide, the company has come under scrutiny. The EPA and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have expressed concern for nearby wetlands and streams. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has ordered Romarco to complete an environmental impact report for the project, as opposed to merely an environmental assessment of the mining project. The permitting process also has been a challenge, but not one the company sees as overwhelming. “Major permits have been applied for,” said Arnold. “Since our technology is off-the-shelf and our mining is conventional, our major issues will be the same issues that all construction projects encounter, such as staffing good people, employee training, meeting schedules, meeting budgets and keeping everything on track. “We will be a conventional open pit mine with crushing, grinding, flotation and leaching,” Arnold pointed out. “About the only thing at all different is that we will fine grind the flotation concentrate, but even that is getting to be pretty common.” According to Arnold, most work cannot begin until the permitting process is completed. “We are designing a road overpass that we might be able to start on under separate permits, but that is all we have planned right now. In the mine there will be about 16 million tons of overburden moved before start-up.” Haile was the original site of the first gold rush in the United States and there have been multiple phases of mining off and on for almost 200 years. Located about three miles north of Kershaw, the mine hasn’t been active since the early 1990s. It and surrounding property contain at least four million ounces of gold, making it one of the more

significant gold discoveries in the United States in the past decade, according to Romarco President and CEO Diane Garrett. Romarco expects the mine to produce at least 140,000 ounces per year for at least 12 years. The expansion will reportedly create hundreds of jobs during construction and about 300 permanent jobs once the mine is fully operational, following the 14month construction process. Gold was first discovered at the Haile site in 1827 and was mined off and on for the rest of that century and into the early 1900s. The mine operated again from 1936 to 1942. But modern mining didn’t begin there until the mid-1980s, when Haile became the first commercial-scale gold mine in South Carolina. The mine stopped gold operations in the early 1990s. Romarco became aware of the A Haile gold mine drill rig truck ready to work.

One of the multiple drilling locations on the Haile gold mine property.

Haile mine while mining in Nevada. The mines weren’t reaching the potential company officials had hoped, and Romarco’s geologist recommended they investigate Haile because significant gold had been found there before and there likely was much more undiscovered. With improvements in mining technology, Romarco can dig more than 1,200 ft. (365 m) underground. Previous drilling at the site was limited to around 300 ft. (91 m). The company expects to produce more than $120 million in gold each year once the mine is fully operational. Romarco has increased its exploration drilling

program each year and in 2011 had planned to complete 564,304 ft. (172,000 m) of drilling. In February 2011, Romarco announced it was adding an eleventh drill rig. The company has currently been drilling the largest program in its history — 564,304 ft. The 2011 exploration drilling program has consisted of approximately 360,892 ft. (110,000 m), which represents an 83 percent increase over the 2010 exploration drilling program. This significant exploration drilling program substantiates what Romarco’s team continues to see as further potential at the Haile Gold Mine. As for environmental concerns,

Haile was the original site of the first gold rush in the United States and there have been multiple phases of mining off and on for almost 200 years. company officials have stated their operations won’t affect the federally protected Carolina heelsplitter shellfish, and claim their work will not pollute the air or water. A major concern for environmentalists and concerned citizens has been the use of toxic chemicals to extract gold. The Romarco mining operation will use cyanide, a caustic compound that if leaked into groundwater could seep into nearby Flat Creek. Cyanide, crucial to wash gold from rocks, also can kill birds and other wildlife. Romarco officials have announced they will control cyanide with a different process than past gold mining operations in South Carolina. According to biologist Morgan

Wolf of South Carolina’s U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, however, “After reviewing all information received to date, the Service continues to believe the excavation and fill of 161.81 acres of wetlands and 38,775 linear feet of stream constitutes a major federal action involving significant effects on the environment. The project appears to be in direct conflict with the purpose and intent of the Clean Water Act, which was established to restore and maintain the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of waters through the control of discharges of dredged or fill material. “As stated in the Clean Water Act’s guidelines,” added Wolf, “when a significant ecological change in the aquatic environment is proposed by the discharge of dredged or fill material, the permitting authority should consider the ecosystem that will be lost as well as the environmental benefits of the new system. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service believes the significant adverse environmental impacts that would result from development and operation of the proposed mine greatly outweigh the benefits.” CEO Garrett said the company will take advantage of the additional time needed to complete the EIS process by optimizing the mine plan, increasing resources and reducing strip ratio through additional drilling. While the EIS is being prepared, Romarco will increase its focus on exploration drilling, continue metallurgical test work at the company-owned laboratory in the hopes of improving current gold recoveries and will optimize design and mine planning through more trade-off studies. Officials also will continue to define underground targets and conduct economic studies on potential underground mining. Romarco has set aside $2 million for the additional study. It originally hoped to begin production at the mine in early 2013. Because of the setback, that date will now be 2014.

Project Set to Boost Area Long-Term Employment Rate HOSPITAL from page 1

form for patient care,” explained Children’s Hospital Executive Vice President Mike McDevitt, who is overseeing the high-profile, $400- million expansion. “We need more space. We’re adding more than 50 new beds and bringing on new services. When construction is complete, we will be able to perform cardiovascular surgeries and provide a full range of cardiac services that previously had to be done down the street at University Hospital.” Children’s Hospital of Alabama is currently licensed for 275 specialty pediatric beds and is the only free-standing hospital in the state dedicated solely to the care and treatment of youths. Recognized as one of the 10 busiest pediatric medical centers in the United States, the facility is home to the state’s only Level I pediatric trauma center. Children’s campus also includes the largest pediatric burn center in the Southeast, one of the largest pediatric outpatient centers in the country, is a leading pediatric hematology/oncology center and offers a bone marrow transplant program. “We’ve basically run out of room,” said McDevitt. who admits the expansion challenges have been numerous, but not insurmountable. “For starters, we wanted to try to be local in terms of our construction efforts to benefit Birmingham-area architects, engineers, etc. while still getting the broad perspective from more nationally recognized sets of professionals. We’ve formed some partnerships to help with that effort, plus we’re lucky in that this city has several great international builders with a lot of experience in the area of health care. “Trying to plan a major new facility while balancing full-time jobs has also been interesting. Also, the construction footprint of the new space takes up the majority of a full city block, so we have had to work with the city to allow for street closures and such. There are also four connecting bridges and an underground tunnel that connects the old and new loading docks for material movement, so there’s a lot to keep up with. According to McDevitt, “There also have been weather delays and a problem that’s not unfamiliar to contractors in Birmingham. We’ve had to deal with issues where there’s too much rock in some spots, not enough in others.” Sign of Hope When completed, the new hospital will house 340 specialty pediatric beds. The existing structure will be used to house other patient beds and will offer outpatient services and additional storage space. McDevitt believes the project has been an encouraging sign for the community the past two years, when construction in the area had been basically at a halt.

“At one time we had the only swinging cranes on the skyline, with between 2,500 to 3,500 workers putting in time on this job. Also, as many as 500 permanent jobs are expected to be created as a result of the new addition, ranging from physicians and nurses to support staff and maintenance crews.” Children’s Hospital of Alabama, ranked among the nation’s best children’s hospitals by U.S. News and World Report magazine, is located along one of the busiest academic and business districts in Birmingham. The multi-million dollar expansion has been marked by deep foundations with 229 caissons, a 35,000 sq. ft. (3,251 sq m) green roof and lean construction techniques. John Harchelroad, senior operation manager of Hoar Construction, describes the expansion as a 50/50 partnership with BE&K Building Group of Charlotte, N.C. Others involved in the project include Construction Manager KLMK of Birmingham, the Dallas-based architectural firm HKS Inc. and Walter Schoal Engineering of Birmingham. “A project of this size has many challenges,” said Harchelroad. “It is an acutecare facility with lots of cutting edge technology design. It also touches everything around it. It has four bridges which connect the existing Hospital, the adjacent Harbor Building, UAB Women’s & Infants Hospital to the east, and the hospital parking deck located to the north across 5th Avenue South. There also is a tunnel across 6th Avenue South which connects to the existing hospital loading dock. This will serve for back of house functions and to deliver hot and chilled water to the existing hospital energy plant. Caissons Go Rolling “Probably the biggest challenge has been the fast-track nature of this project. We, the contractor, were actually awarded the project before the design consultants (architect and consulting engineers). We started site work May 18, 2009 and did not receive final construction documents until May of 2010. Installation of deep caisson foundations also proved to be a major challenge. Allowing for anticipated rock irregularities within a key area related to the project’s foundation, HOAR estimated 15 weeks to complete the foundation plan, which included 229 caissons across a typical 30-foot grid. The first obstacle was discovering that the depth of the caissons would need to be adjusted substantially. Rather than building the foundation on a universal caisson length of 35 ft. (10.6 m), drilling confirmed certain caissons only needed to be 8 ft. (2.4 m), while others re-quired at least 130 ft. (40 m). While caisson depths were being recalibrated, several sinkholes surfaced, with the most problematic sinkhole located in the least favorable plot of land on the job site, where caisson work had already proven to

be most difficult. This limited the areas where crews could work and could have seriously delayed completion of the new hospital. With elevated slab work underway, additional manpower and material was brought in, including form work, structure crews and hoisting cranes. More than half a dozen cranes worked simultaneously on the site, juggling the order when necessary. To solve the sinkhole problem, crews pumped in more than 1,500 yds. (1,371 m) of grout to stabilize the subsurface. The work led to changes to the foundation and vertical work schedule, as workers stair-stepped the erection of the building. This helped avoid any potential weather-related and foundation delays. Despite repeated bouts of heavy rain, ground work delays were offset by progress on the structure itself. Behind the Curtain Wall Physical Security LLC of Bessemer is handling the curtain wall installation, which also includes design assist, manufacturing and installation of all the exterior glazing systems for the project, including testing and validation of the system and design to meet all performance requirements. The total project duration is about 18 months. “We are nearing completion of the installation of the unitized, shop glazed curtain wall system,” said Ken Hays, who serves as vice president of preconstruction for physical security. “The total square footage of curtain wall for the project is approximately 220,000 square feet, including the bridges. We used cranes to install the prefabricated unitized curtain wall glass panels. A number of man lifts and scissor lifts were required for installation of the curtain wall anchors. As well, the standard forklifts were required for unloading material. “But even with the preplanning efforts,” Hays pointed out, “Mother Nature has a mind of her own and presented the major challenge on this project. High winds were our biggest challenge. With curtain wall panels sized eight feet wide by 30 feet tall, a slight increase in the wind speed shuts down the installation operation. “There’s been nothing major as far as setbacks, especially given the size of the project. The intent of the design assist contract award was that we could get out in front of the schedule working intimately with the contractor and the architect to finalize the exterior curtain wall design in a manner meeting the architect’s intent, so that we could start fabricating and glazing the shop glazed curtain wall units to backlog them so that once the structure was ready we could quickly dry-in the building. That is very important, given the amount of interior work required in a medical facility.” Hays also said the project was a unique opportunity to bring his company’s skill sets

as a glazing contractor that also manufactures glass skins of buildings to bear. Richard Drennen, president of subcontractor Superior Mechanical, also is keeping a close eye on the hospital’s progress. “Our firm installed the medical gas piping and equipment, as well as the deionized and domestic water system. We essentially did anything that involved pressure piping. We are approximately 70 percent complete. “As a plumbing contractor, we are using lulls, forklifts, skid steer loaders and backhoes, along with man lifts, drills, band saws and purging rigs. Currently, we have men on ten floors at a time which makes concurrent deadlines a challenge.” Drennen said his crews are well aware of the contribution they are making. “We’ve had the CEO of the hospital speak to our staff to help them appreciate the value that they are adding. The work that they are doing today on a certain floor might be a triage unit that will save a child’s life two years from now.” Lean Construction Strategies According to Drennen, “Through the course of this project, we have implemented a variety of new strategies that are taking the construction industry by storm. Lean construction is at the top of the list, which causes us to identify and eliminate waste in our processes. Equipment use is certainly a part of that discussion, and we may see more projects use the concept of an equipment pool where trade partners like us are allowed to use equipment only when we need it. Thereafter, it would be returned to the pool to be checked out for use by other subcontractors on the job. In so doing, we would eliminate the enormous amount of time that most equipment sits idle, which is currently the case on the largest construction projects today.” As for where construction stands right now, Harchelroad explained, “We are essentially dried in and should be completely dried in within the next several weeks. We are in the finish trades on the bottom floors, paint, floor covering, cabinetry etc. Some highlights have been our utilization of BIM (Building Information Modeling) and our lean efforts. It also will be a LEED-certified project and will be the first new hospital project in Alabama to receive that certification.” For the most part, Harchelroad explained, crews have been working five days a week, eight hours per day. “We do stagger start times to help facilitate getting people in and out of the building. Peak manpower has been at approximately 1,100 workers a day. We are in excess of 1,700,000 man hours for the project. And we have faced many extremes in weather from hot to cold to wet.

LEED Certification Aims to Provide Learning Opportunity HOSPITAL from page 36

have been broken both in winter and summer since we started construction. To date, I believe we have 30 rain days above the mean average.” As far as chief concerns, “First, this project has to be built within AIA guidelines for Healthcare Construction. Life safety systems are paramount when it comes to patient safety. Also the technology of the equipment used calls for special requirements. There is redundancy built into electrical and mechanical systems. Most of us have been involved with health care construction for a long time but the Children’s mission is particularly touching.” Children’s is using millions from city occupational tax rebates to help fund the replacement hospital, which will give medical professionals a proper work environment that matches the skills they bring. Numerous local benefactors have also contributed millions to the project. Mark Harry of Marathon Electrical Contractors Inc. of Birmingham said his company had the task of handling the electrical system for the project, along with voice data installation. “The biggest obstacle has been keeping floors stocked with materials. Not being able to store materials on-site due to curb-to-curb

construction is definitely a challenge. Setting the large equipment was subbed to Crane Works to fly to the upper floors. Delivery time was crucial to make this happen.” Using a variety of lifts, crews have worked meticulously completing wiring for the new facility, which often involved drilling into concrete. With more than 140 men on the job, Harry said the work has gone smoothly for the most part. “It’s a big job, but one that has special meaning to us. It’s close to our hearts, knowing people from all over can bring there children here to receive treatment.” The new hospital will feature glass connecting walkways and is located on the block directly north of the current hospital and would incorporate the existing Children’s Harbor facility. The replacement facility will relieve crowding in the current building, help accommodate projected growth in patient volumes and allow for anticipated medical technology needs and planned consolidation of pediatric services. Two buildings on the site were razed to make way for the new hospital, which is located next to the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Women and Children’s facility. Construction of the new building is expected to be completed by May 2012, three years after work began. The hospital

won’t officially open, however, until early August of next year. Building More Than a Structure Said McDevitt, “It’s very exciting to be adding a more notable structure to the city’s horizon. The architectural design is quite interesting, featuring mostly glass with injections of color strips that glow at night. In an area where buildings are made mostly of standard brick and punched out windows, this new hospital will definitely add something new. And we chose for the front doors to face the city, plus it has a nice view of a lovely park that recently opened.” McDevitt said being green was also important in the planning phase. The expansion is seeking to become the first health care facility in Alabama to receive its LEED Certification, making it environmentally friendly. Features of the expansion required for LEED certification include the recycling and reuse of building materials salvaged from the demolition of two outdated existing buildings on the construction site; selection of low-emission building materials; reduction of construction activity pollution; and rooftop landscaping to reduce heat absorption and storm water runoff. “We’re using this LEED journey as an education process for the kids. We are taking elements and creating stories with them, so

the children can establish a dialogue. Indoor air quality also is very important to us, along with water conservation and being energy efficient. These kids will appreciate our efforts as they grow older and become more aware of the environment, we hope.” Patients also will find inviting rooms awaiting them. Each will be private, larger and will have a family zone with a sleeper sofa, large wardrobe and small safe for valuables. Every patient floor will have a family kitchen with refrigerator and microwave, a laundry room, and small waiting areas with natural light. Some patients and their parents even had a chance to become part of the construction process, when a metal beam covered with their names and personal messages was hoisted during the topping-out ceremony, marking the last structural beam of the project. “ This is going to be a wonderful place for patients’ parents to visit and great things are going to be happening in terms of medical care for these kids,” said McDevitt. “We also are very pleased that this expansion will allow us to leave the right kind of legacy as far as the environment is concerned.” (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)

Advancements in Technology Become Hallmark of 1940s WOOLDRIDGE from page 28

president, and Wooldridge was vice president. The arrangement did not last; the next year, Woodlridge left the company and became president of ATECO (American Tractor Equipment Corporation), another California-based manufacturer of attachments and allied equipment for crawler tractors. (For clarity’s sake, all Wooldridge citations from this point forward are to Wooldridge Manufacturing, not Mack Wooldridge unless he is specifically named). Under Guzman, Wooldridge produced blades, rippers and scrapers similar to what Wooldridge’s former company was selling, but with the addition of a 25-yard scraper with six rear wheels. Recognizing the increasing demand for scrapers, Wooldridge Manufacturing concentrated on developing a full line of one- and two-axle models, and changed the name to Terra Clipper. However, the limitations of hydraulic technology at the time probably caused Wooldridge to choose cable operation for its implement line. (Contamination from dirt was one of the problems of early hydraulics, and Mack Wooldridge hired a University of Southern California engineering student, Harry F. Vickers, to solve the problem. Vickers did so, and went on to great success in the field of fluid power; the American Society of Mechanical Engineers called him the father of industrial hydraulics and, in 1956, awarded him the ASME Medal to recognize his “eminently distinguished engineering achievement.”) By the early 1940s, all Wooldridge blades, rippers and scrapers were cable-operated, and the company added a line of cable-control units in one-, two-, three- and four-drum configurations. The Terra Clipper scrapers ranged in capacity from 6 to 28 yds., and models were designated by a single letter preceded by “TC”. The larger models were offered with four rear wheels as an option, and the largest had the option of four wheels on each axle. Similar to Bucyrus-Erie,

LeTourneau, and Gar Wood scrapers, the Terra Clipper’s ejector cable was routed over the center of the bowl to a sheave on top of the ejector, which used a roll-out ejection system instead of forced ejection by a tailgate. During World War II, Wooldridge continued building blades, rippers and scrapers for the military, and started designing a motor scraper. Its first motor scraper, the Terra Cobra Model TCY, was introduced in 1945; “TC” stood for the Terra Cobra tractor, and “Y” was for the scraper. Like the Terra Clipper scrapers, the Terra Cobras were cable operated. The first models used a three-drum system with air controls, but later models had an air-controlled two-drum system. The Terra Cobras also had a unique steering system that used two hydraulic cylinders running along each sideframe of the tractor. A multi-strand roller chain ran from the cylin-

ders back and around a swing circle below and concentric with the scraper’s kingpin. Instead of a steering wheel, Terra Cobras used a horizontal bar with short handles at each end, much like those used on the early Caterpillar crawlers. Turning the bar to the left or right moved the cylinder in that direction. Until the mid-1950s, all Terra Cobras used Cummins engines, and Cummins powered some models into the 1960s. Rated at 14 yds. struck and 18 yds. heaped, the TCY had four forward speeds and was powered by a sixcylinder, 150 hp engine. It was upgraded to the TC-S14 in 1948 and the TC-S142, with 225 hp and a 10-speed transmission, in 1950. It was also around this time that the Morrison-Knudsen Company, Inc., of Boise, Idaho, acquired a financial interest in Wooldridge. M-K, part of the Six Companies joint venture that built Hoover Dam and other major projects, had grown to become one of the largest contractors in the western U.S. During the 1940s and 1950s, M-K purchased large numbers of scrapers and other equipment from Wooldridge. M-K had 34 Wooldridge pull scrapers and nine Terra Cobra motor scrapers on one Missouri River levee job, and for the Union Pacific Railroad’s third main line over Sherman Hill from Cheyenne to Dale, Wyo., M-K used eight 17-yard Terra Clippers and five 15-yard Terra Cobras in 1952 to 1953. Wooldridge also offered a 20-yard dump wagon called the Cobra Wagon (later, the Cobra Haul) for the Terra Cobra tractor that could be easily interchanged with the scraper unit. Rather than having hinged doors on the bottom, the dump body was bottomless and rested on a steel plate with rails on either side. To drop its load, the body was pulled by cable along the rails toward the rear beyond the steel plate. Later models included standard rear dump wagons as well. Meanwhile, the pull scraper line evolved into two series: the larger Terra Clippers (18-30 yds. heaped) and the Boiling see WOOLDRIDGE page 86

Curtiss-Wright Model CWD321 three-axle dump wagon.

SECTION Ajax Paving Industries Sees Orange Barrels as Good News Pages 49-63

By Lori Lovely CEG CORRESPONDENT

Like the rest of the country, Florida was hit hard by the economic recession. “The market is slow,” commented Lynn Prescott, region manager of E.D. Etnyre & Co. “But I see a lot of orange barrels, so there’s work now.” While orange barrels might not be appreciated by motorists, they’re welcome news for paving companies like the family-owned Ajax Paving Industries Inc. Founded 1951 in Detroit, the asphalt company retains its Michigan roots but also has a base in Florida serving the Gulf Coast. With six modern, high-capacity hot-mix asphalt plants and seven paving crews, Ajax covers 16 to 20 counties from central to west coastal Florida, focusing on subdivisions, parking lots, interstates and automotive test tracks. “Business has been flat the last few years,” confirmed Mike Horan, owner, “but we’ll be busy next year. We’re picking up a lot of government work.” With more work on the books, it’s imperative to have the right equipment to do the job. “We replace and upgrade equipment regularly. We have eight prime trucks; the oldest is a 2000. They have about a 10-year lifespan,” Horan said. For example, an old distributor was worn out, Horan said. “It was a 2001 truck with 300,000 miles on it. We were spending too much money to keep it running.” Purchase Choice To replace the old unit, Ajax acquired a Centennial 2000 distributor and truck from Etnyre. Established in 1898, Etnyre manufactured and sold the first bituminous distributor, designed to apply a controlled and metered applica-

tion of bituminous material. Today, the company is a worldwide manufacturer and marketer of equipment for the construction and maintenance of roads. “It’s not the first one we’ve purchased,” Collins said. “We’ve owned four other Etnyres. We have a good history with them.” The bulk of Ajax’s fleet consists of machinery from Rosco and Etnyre, Horan noted. “We’ve had good luck with them. They’re well made, with the latest technology. They are continually improving technology. They’re mechanically dependable; we’ve had no issues. And we get good support from Linder Industrial Machinery.” “Etnyre purchases a frame and cab and mounts their distributor on it. We are the local distributor for Etnyre and our job is to sell and support the combined unit,” explained Linder salesman, Dave Thieme. Linder has maintained a relationship with Ajax for about 30 years, Thieme estimated. “Ajax is a great company to work with. We feel like we’re in a partnership with them. They have other equipment from us: two Hamm oscillating double drum rollers, several Etnyre tack trucks, a Komatsu grader and excavators — because they’re getting back into dirt and grading.” The Centennial 2000 is sonamed because of its 2000-gallon tank. It features an electronic asphalt pump speed control that provides more precise control than manual systems. Because there is no bypass valve in the circulating system, the material that goes through the pump goes through the spray nozzles. The balanced, dualfeed asphalt flow while spraying ensures uniform application across the fully balanced spray bar. Although there are duplicate controls for stationary functions located at the rear of the distributor,

“They used to get covered and they would crack,” Collins remembered. “Now, they’ve been moved higher, out of the spray zone. They relocated stuff to keep it clean. The material is 160 to 225 degrees. Once the tack sets, you can’t use gas or diesel to wash it off. It causes efficiency problems. It’s a highmaintenance machine: If you use it five hours, it needs one hour of maintenance. But this is more service-friendly. We can go six or seven months; it used to be monthly. We have to bid tighter these days, so if we can cut an hour off each day, it helps us.” (L-R) are Jeff Roberts, Linder’s South Florida regional manager, and Mike Horan, owner, Ajax Machinery.

Ajax employees at the Etnyre training led by Lynn Prescott.

all spraying functions can be controlled from the truck cab. “With the controls inside, one man can operate the sprayer while driving,” Collins said. “It’s much easier to control.” In addition to improved control, the Centennial 2000 requires less maintenance. “It requires very little maintenance,” said Prescott. “You have to clean the bar back so it’s ready the next day. After the dirt work, the distributor is the first piece of equipment on the job; if it’s down, the whole project is down.”

A self-flushing system cleans the entire compact circulating system with a minimum amount of flushing oil. There are no flexible steel or rubber lines that can break or leak. The all-pipe circulating system delivers material efficiently to the spray bar. An exclusive Vacu-Flo suck-back system clears asphalt from the lowest point in the system without reversing the asphalt pump or back-flushing the suction screen. An important innovation is the relocation of air hoses, air lines and valves.

Computer Training Another selling feature of the Centennial 2000 is an upgraded computer system that automatically matches pump output to distributor speed. The application rate is automatically maintained, regardless of variations in truck speed bar width or transmission gear changes during operation, providing even more improved accuracy. “We can pre-program how much spray comes out,” Collins elaborated. “Different jobs require different layers of tack. We used to do two trips to double spray for a thicker layer. This is quicker, and time is money. But we had to do some training because the programming is different than we’re used to.” Prescott was sent by Etnyre to train a group of Ajax personnel on the latest model. “It’s a safety issue; the tank is pressurized with hot liquid inside. But it’s also because the new computer has 10 memories for application rates,” she indicated. Understanding that tacking requires a light shot, priming necessitates a heavier shot and chip sealing (spraying liquid and dropsee PAVING page 62

Etnyre Holds Training on Centennial 2000’s Computer PAVING from page 49

ping rock) needs an even heavier shot, Etnyre programmed preset asphalt pump speeds for various applications to provide a more accurate application rate. “It’s easy to learn,” Prescott promises. “The new computer is user-friendly because of the presets. Ajax never had a preset pump; they had dial-up before. This speeds things up. There’s no guessing. It also saves the company money because of its accuracy — you’re not spraying liquid you don’t need. Every job has specifications about how much liquid goes on the ground before the hot mix; this lets you put down the right amount …consistently.” The Ajax crew seemed to like the new computer, Prescott thought. Although the new distributor was just going to the field after having its cab painted, Horan feels certain his staff will like it. “It’s more user-friendly than previous trucks. It’s easier to program and get it right. They’re glad to get the new one, and eager to use it,” Horan stated. With all the work Ajax has lined up, it

won’t be long before this new distributor is put to the test. Horan knows that if there are any issues, help is only a phone call away. “We do our own maintenance — unless it’s computer-related. Then we take it to [Linder]. They provide a lot of support. Training is the biggest thing,” Horan concluded. With 16 locations in key cities throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida, Linder represents Komatsu construction products; Wirtgen milling machines; Vogele pavers; Hamm compaction products; Kleemann crushing products; Genesis demolition and scrap attachments; Exodus scrap handlers, Allied Construction Products, Etnyre, Esco, Hensley and Superior Brooms.

Case Expands F Series With 1021F, 1121F Wheel Loaders Case Construction Equipment expanded its new F Series wheel loader product line with two all-new models, the 1021F and 1121F. The products expand the Case wheel loader line into a new size class. The machines are specifically engineered for quarry, aggregate and truck-loading applications. “Case is taking the industry lead with the new F Series wheel loaders,” said Tim O’Brien, Case marketing manager. “We’ve launched these Case wheel loaders with new highly-efficient, high-horsepower engines and advanced SCR emissions technology. So the machines will respond faster — and you’ll save fuel.” O’Brien added that operators will boost their productivity with F Series enhancements like joystick steering, selectable power modes and a rearview camera. He also pointed out that Case is introducing an all-new hydromechanical transmission package. “This will provide additional fuel savings, faster acceleration and faster hydraulic cycle times. The bottom line is F Series wheel loaders will out-produce other machines at a lower cost,” he said. The two new F Series wheel loaders join the current 721F, 821F and 921F line up. • The 1021F features a 296 hp (221 kW) engine, a 5.5-cu. yd. (4.2-cu m) bucket, a dump height of 121 in. (307.5 cm) and an operating weight of 53,500 lb. (24,318 kg). • The 1121F, rated at 320 hp (239 kW), has a 6.25-cu. yd. (4.8-cu m) bucket, a dump height of 126 in. (320 cm) and an operating weight of 60,800 lb. (27,636 kg). Boost Your Productivity Case designed the new 1021F and 1121F Series wheel loaders from the ground up for the aggregate and quarry market to boost operator productivity and reduce owning and operating costs. To increase productivity and meet Tier IV Interim emissions standards, Case introduced selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology for wheel loaders. “With the SCR technology, Case is making what was already the industry’s most fuel-efficient line of wheel loaders even more fuel efficient,” explained O’Brien. “At the same time, the F Series engines ‘breathe freer’ than engines with a cooled exhaust gas recirculation [CEGR] solution. This lets wheel loaders respond to the throttle faster.” He said in addition to letting the engine generate power easier, other advantages of SCR technology include improving fuel efficiency and reducing long-term maintenance costs. The 1021F and 1121F wheel loaders provide fast acceleration, quick cycle times and high production. The new highhorsepower Case engines also feature variable-geometry turbochargers. In addition, the Case wheel loaders have four power modes — economy, standard, max and auto — to let operators match the engine power to their needs. A new idle-management feature maximizes fuel economy and allows owners to meet local idle reduction regulations. Using the fuel-saver mode, the operator can limit the time the machine idles in five-minute increments. Helping to protect the engine is a standard diagnostic and engine shutdown feature. Hydro-Mechanical Transmission The new Case 1021F and 1121F wheel loaders are avail-

able with hydro-mechanical transmission. It offers all the advantages of hydrostatic drive, along with the durability and features of a conventional mechanical transmission, according to the manufacturer. The new transmission intelligently adjusts the mix of power delivery depending on travel speed. The hydrostatic pumps and motors work at lower speed for quick response, smoothness and efficiency. At higher speeds, power transmission is mixed with mechanical gears. At the highest speed, the mechanical portion of the transmission does most of the work in direct-drive mode, along with a lock up torque converter. Cab Comfort Several new comfort features will boost operator productivity. A new rearview, wide-angle camera provides live video to a color monitor in the cab. The camera option nearly eliminates blind spots and is ideal for operating around other machines or workers, according to the manufacturer. The cab offers an unobstructed view to both edges of the bucket or attachment, while a wide window and sloping hood provide clear vision to the rear. “At a busy quarry, aggregate pit or construction job site,

it’s important to have excellent visibility to all corners of the vehicle,” O’Brien said. “The Case F Series wheel loaders offer better rear visibility than any competitor in the market and a panoramic view to the front and sides to increase operator confidence and productivity.” As in previous models, the Case F Series wheel loaders include an advanced instrument cluster to enable operators to adjust various functions without relying on a service technician. The Case joystick steering also is offered with these new models. Case lets operators switch between the joystick for fast-cycle, operator-spotted tight truck loading or steering wheel for longer cycles and load-and-carry tasks. Extended-Reach Models Case optimized the standard Z-bar linkage for higher hydraulic flows. Upgraded axles include a standard axlecooling system, and optional hydraulically-locking front differential to adapt to duties in heavy construction applications. In addition to the Z-bar loader, Case offers XR extendedreach models for the 1021F and 1121F wheel loaders. The extended-reach option adds 21 in. (53.3 cm) of hinge pin height to the 1021F, and 15 in. (38.1 cm) to the 1121F. The 1021F and 1121F wheel loaders feature longer wheel bases and a lower center of gravity. Case also reduced the overall height for easier highway transport. Easy Serviceability The new Case 1021F and 1121F wheel loaders offer the same service access and maintainability that Case builds into all its products. These features include an easy flip-up hood, environmentally safe fluid drains, sight gauges and grouped, ground-level service checkpoints. For more information, visit www.casece.com.

The new Case 1021F and 1121F wheel loaders are available with hydro-mechanical transmission.

Caterpillar Completes Acquisition of Bucyrus; Valued at Approximately $8.8B Driven by a key strategic imperative to expand its leadership and support for customers in the mining industry, Caterpillar Inc. has completed its acquisition of Bucyrus International Inc. Caterpillar funded the acquisition, valued at approximately $8.8 billion (including net debt), using cash from its balance sheet and debt. The company did not issue equity to help fund the transaction. Caterpillar Group President Steve Wunning will have executive office accountability for Caterpillar’s Global Mining business, including Bucyrus. “We are pleased to complete this acquisition and are proud to welcome Bucyrus employees to Caterpillar,â€? Wunning said. “We are bringing together the best people, the best products and the best facilities from both companies. This acquisition is all about growth and unprecedented opportunities. Combined with our aggressive product development and capacity expansion plans, it will position Caterpillar to offer a broad range of surface and underground mining products and solutions to our customers,â€? Wunning added. “The rapid development of the world’s emerging markets is expected to continue to drive an increasing need for commodities as billions of people around the world seek to improve their standard of living. Wherever there is mining, Caterpillar and our dealers will be there to serve our mining customers.â€? Organization Structure As previously announced, the Caterpillar Global Mining headquarters will be in Oak Creek, Wis., and will include three mining divisions reporting to Steve Wunning. • Caterpillar Vice President Dave Bozeman will lead the Integrated Manufacturing Operations Division, which will include the global manufacturing operations of Caterpillar mining products. The division has manufacturing operations in Asia, Australia, Europe and North America. • Caterpillar Vice President Chris Curfman will lead the Mining Sales and Marketing Division, with global responsibility for maintaining and enhancing customer relationships, developing the global marketing strategy and ensuring future growth opportunities. • Luis de Leon, previously chief operating officer of Bucyrus, has been elected by the Caterpillar board of directors as a corporate vice president, and will lead the new Mining Products Division. The division will be responsible for overall mining product strategy development, product design and product sourcing. In addition, several other Caterpillar divisions will provide critical support to the mining business. These divisions include the Large Power Systems Division, Advanced Components & Systems Division, Remanufacturing & Components Division, Parts Distribution & Logistics Division and Global Purchasing Division. Branding For the past several months, Caterpillar has evaluated the best approach for branding legacy Bucyrus products, seeking input from dealers, customers, the leadership of Bucyrus and outside industry and branding experts. The conclusion was a single brand — Caterpillar — for its mining products.

“As we examined this issue, it became clear it would be in the best long-term interests of our business to have a single brand for our mining customers, and that brand will be Caterpillar,� Wunning said. “This decision is important to quickly bring together one team with a single face to our customers. The decision was endorsed by the Bucyrus board of directors, and we will begin to transition Bucyrus products to the Caterpillar brand in a quick and orderly fashion.� Distribution In addition, it became clear that the capabilities of the Cat dealer network with mining customers meant that all products should be sold and serviced by Cat dealers. This is consistent with Cat’s long-held distribution strategy of strong, entrepreneurial, independent dealers. Since Bucyrus predominantly employed a direct model to sell and support products, Cat is beginning the process to transition distribution and support to Cat dealers. It plans to sell the Bucyrus distribution business to Caterpillar dealers that support mining customers around the world. “Our dealers are very excited about the Bucyrus acquisition and are ready to move forward with the distribution business. Cat dealers have a proven track record in helping customers realize the highest productivity and lowest owning and operating costs, and many mining customers have told us how important the dealers are to their success,� Wunning added. Funding At the time it announced the acquisition, Cat expected to fund it through a combination of debt, up to $2 billion of new equity, and cash. As a result of cash flow and an increasingly strong balance sheet, it completed the acquisition without the need to issue equity. Cat issued $4.5 billion of new debt on May 24, 2011, according to the company. Synergy Benefits The purchase of Bucyrus is a great strategic acquisition for Caterpillar. The combination of the speed and responsiveness of Bucyrus, along with the process discipline and execution of Caterpillar, will result in a business that will deliver more benefits and value than could be accomplished by either company alone, according to the company. The benefits include higher sales of new equipment and aftermarket parts and support, lower product cost and greater reliability driven by the use of Caterpillar engines and components in Bucyrus products and improved service and lower owning and operating costs driven by Caterpillar’s global manufacturing, supply chain and purchasing capabilities. “Today’s announcement marks the beginning of a new era in Caterpillar’s mining business,� said Wunning. “The joining of these two iconic companies is an incredible combination. It positions us for long-term success in an industry with significant growth potential, and we intend to fully leverage our unique strengths to help the mining customer make money. In turn, that will benefit our employees, our stockholders, and the communities in which we live and work. We’re ready to get started.�

New Light Tower Offers Compact Light Source The newest addition to the line of portable light towers from Doosan Infracore Portable Power is the LSC (LightSource Compact), designed to meet the rigorous standards of rental and construction markets. The new LSC is ideal for illumination of special events, road and bridge construction, emergency and disaster relief and general construction sites, according to the manufacturer. The LSC portable light tower features a compact platform for job site mobility as well as truckload maximization with 11 fully-assembled units on a standard flatbed for cost-effective transportation. The LSC also utilizes up to 20 percent less space during storage and full operational deployment on a job site compared to the industry average, while maintaining its wind stability, static roll threshold and 30-ft. (9 m) extension capabilities. Four 1,000-watt metal-halide floodlights provide a NEMA 6 x 7 beam spread for better light distribution and area coverage. The fixture design with a side-mounted/horizontally positioned bulb in each rectangular floodlight provides broad light distribution of 460 ft.-candles. Cast-aluminum fixture housings include a separate reflector that lowers the risk of disruptive light distribution and offers a robust light. The small footprint of the floodlights reduces wind load. The heavy-duty galvanized steel tower of the

LSC extends from 12 to 30 ft. (3.6 to 9 m) and the mast is raised by dual, hand-operated winches and an automatic safety brake. Curly cord protection within the steel shroud along the first section of the tower prevents pinch or puncture damage. At full mast and with all four outrigger/jacks secured, the unit will withstand winds up to 65 mph. The telescoping tower can be rotated 360 degrees and locked into position for precise aiming of floodlights. For traveling and storage, a system automatically locks the tower into place when in the horizontal position. The LSC light tower is equipped with a Mitsubishi L3E 1,800-rpm water-cooled Tier IV Final engine. The engine, along with a 4.5 kW generator and 27 gal. (102 L) fuel tank, provides up to 52 hours of continuous operation. The new light tower is backed by a factory warranty providing 2year/2,000-hour bumper-to-bumper coverage. Strength and robustness for towing and operation stability is provided by a 7-gauge steel frame with integrated towbar. Safe towing of the LSC light tower also is ensured with a standard 2-in. (5 cm) ball hitch and a DOT full-running light package. All critical wiring is extended to the drawbar to enable easy hook-up to the tow vehicle. The trailer also is equipped with four tie-downs, zinccoated chains, a license plate holder with light and

Two Months Later, Joplin Continues BTI’s MPV Cassette to Dig Out From Debris After Tornado Series Designed as By Alan Scher Zagier ASSOCIATED PRESS

JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) Empty concrete pads where houses once stood. Untouched playgrounds still riddled with broken glass. A once-bustling retail district, eerily quiet on a weekend night. Two months after a huge tornado split Joplin in half, the recovery here has barely begun, and the city remains focused on cleaning up massive mounds of debris. But local leaders say Joplin and the neighboring village of Duquesne already face another question: How much to rebuild and how much to reinvent? “Ninety-nine percent of the time, what we really want to do is return to business as usual, go back to exactly what was there at the earliest possible time, get everyone back in their homes,” said Bob Berkebile, a Kansas City architect and disaster recovery specialist who has been working informally as a consultant in Joplin. “But I have never seen a community where they couldn’t have made a decision to build back something different.” In Joplin, city officials, neighborhoods and families are beginning to confront decisions that involve tradeoffs of cost, speed, quality and uncertainty: whether to strengthen building codes to produce better houses, but also some delay; to plot out more parks and amenities that would raise the quality of life, but require detailed planning; to require new storm safety features that would balance peace of mind against more expense for those of modest incomes. Some choices are being made in an atmosphere still charged with crisis. Since the storm, “People were buying homes sight unseen,” said real estate agent Allen Hall. “There was a time for a couple of weeks where people would come in and say, ‘I don’t care about the price, I need this home.’” Jeff Goldhammer, a local nonprofit manager whose home was destroyed, is living 25 mi. away in Neosho until the house he purchased is available. With a vacant lot on his hands but a glut of similar lots available, he’s listening to the public conversation and wondering what to do. “You had homes worth triple digits destroyed, and then you had homes for people with low to moderate incomes

destroyed,” he said. “These groups of people have different situations, different desires.” Following the experience of other storm-damaged cities is difficult because of the scope of the damage in Joplin. More than 7,000 homes were destroyed in the city of 50,000. The May 22 tornado killed 159 people, dis-

enacted in mid-June, generated protests that it would keep those ready to rebuild now from returning to Joplin. The city announced July 22 that it would start issuing building permits for a larger swath of the stricken area and already has issued nearly 1,700 residential building permits to repair tornado damage. The short-term delay is designed to keep the focus on debris removal. City want to get as “You had homes worth triple digits leaders much cleared as possidestroyed, and then you had homes ble by Aug. 7, when federal governfor people with low to moderate the ment’s share of the cost incomes destroyed. “These groups of will decline from 90 to 75 percent. people have different situations, percent That could mean an estimated $3 million a different desires.” Jeff Goldhammer day.

Modular Workhorse Breaker Technology’s (BTI) MPV cassette series has been designed for use as a modular, multi-purpose underground “workhorse”. A multi-purpose cassette concept streamlines the overall operation by maximizing the productivity of the carrier unit, according to the manufacturer. Cassette configurations are available as fuel lube, fuel transfer, shotcrete remixer, personnel carrier, crane, scissors lift, emulsion loading and ANFO loading, with the ability to meet specific requirements. Engineered for Productivity and Safety The carrier is a low profile vehicle that can maneuver in tight underground tunnels, with +/- 45 degree articulation, a width of 6 ft. (1.8 m) and a protective canopy height of 7 ft. 6 in. (2.3 m). The cassettes have rugged hydraulic stabilizers with front and rear independent controls mounted on the frames. Two telescopic hydraulic jacks with hydraulic side shift are mounted at the articulation end. Four-point manual lock-up is provided for added safety. The frames are constructed for heavy duty mine use with checker-plated flat decks. Easy quick attach/detach hookups are provided for both hydraulics and electric. The cassettes are equipped with a plug-in electrical system for lighting, headlights and running lights. Cassette mounted controls with self-contained full function hydraulics allow for total modular integration. Aligning guides facilitate simple attach/detach, allowing cassette changeover in minutes. Both the carrier and cassettes have the same full complement of options as the dedicated vehicles that BTI also offers. BTI’s worldwide network of dealer representatives along with their in-house service specialists offer assistance during vehicle commissioning and provide training for operation and maintenance personnel.

TCT Construction Takes First Place TREKKER from page 8

Keeping the balls in place was nearly impossible for contestants. This shows one just getting started. Removing a bucket from over one ball and moving it to cover a second ball proved more difficult than expected.

Trying to extend the backhoe under the tape proved difficult for some.

This contestant lost one of the balls before getting through the first obstacle.

Skeet Mizell, Trekker Tractor, has just awarded a door prize to Scott Hamilton of All Around Tractor Service in Crystal River.

JCB Gives Its Rough-Terrain Lineup a Boost With 950 JCB has added a 10,000 lb. (4,536 kg) lift capacity machine to its range of rough-terrain forklifts. The JCB 950 is ideal for use in construction and home building, agriculture applications and waste and recycling, as well as the rental industry where its high mobility and rugged frame make it a highly productive equipment solution, according to the manufacturer. With a spacious cab for improved operator comfort, the JCB 950 tips the scales at 18,650 lbs. (8,459 kg) and builds on the features of the 930 and 940 models. Powered by JCB’s Dieselmax engine, the JCB 950 offers 84 hp (63 kW) of power and 258 lb. ft. (350 Nm) of torque. The forklift drives through JCB’s synchro shuttle transmission, which combines a four-speed synchromesh gearbox with integral torque converter, with an electrically operated reversing shuttle for smooth gear changes on the move. All three models in the JCB RTFL range can be specified with two- or fourwheel drive, with JCB Max-Trac axles providing performance in all ground conditions. Maximum travel speed is 18 mph (29 kmh). The 22 ft. (6.7 m) mast offers 10 degrees of mast tilt (forward), with a sideshift function making the placing of materials on scaffolding much easier to complete. The machine can be ordered with FOPS standard cab or canopy. The cab offers two-door access, safety glass all round and front and rear windshield wipers. A roof wash/wipe function is available as an option. Excellent all round visibility and an outside turning radius of just 14 ft. 5 in. (4.4 m) for the two-wheel drive model and 16 ft. 1 in. (4.8 m) for the all-wheel drive machine, make the 950 maneuverable on site.

The JCB 950 tips the scales at 18,650 lbs. (8,459 kg) and builds on the features of the 930 and 940 models.

trucks, was established in 2005. Four years prior, McMichael had been selling for Trax Inc., a large heavy equipment company based in Atlanta. Then McMichael left the business and teamed with his brother to form Trax North Carolina. In 2005, Trax North Carolina was divided into two separate companies. McMichael was looking for a strong Christian partner to help build a heavy equipment company. Scott Woody, a former general equipment manager for Rifenburg Construction’s Park East Sales seemed the right fit. The company team also includes Randy Barrett and David Vendemia, multi-state rentals and worldwide sales; Don White, service manager; Michael Pope, field service; and Amy Pope, office manager and safety coordinator.

XAS 750 JD7 Compressor Meets New Emission Standards Atlas Copco’s XAS 750 JD7 Tier 4a rotary screw, portable compressor generates 750 CFM of air at 100 psi. Powered by a 200 hp (149 kW) John Deere six-cylinder diesel engine, the XAS 750 JD7 is Tier 4a compliant and designed for heavyduty construction environments. The XAS 750 JD7 uses a new, improved air end, with an advanced rotor profile. This air end reduces the horsepower required to produce the 750 CFM, resulting in better fuel efficiency. The air pressure is adjustable from 58 up to 125 psi. The John Deere engine uses exhaust gas recirculation technology to reduce NOx emissions. The exhaust gases are cooled and reintroduced to the engine cylinders, resulting in lower peak combustion temperature, reducing NOx formation. A particulate filter is then used to remove the increased amount of particulate matter in order to meet the new Tier 4a emission standards.

Atlas Copco’s XAS 750 JD7 Tier 4a rotary screw, portable compressor generates 750 CFM of air at 100 psi.

The electronically controlled, water-cooled engine, variable speed fan, and new Atlas Copco air end reduces fuel consumption to 8.2 gal. (31 L) per hour at 100 percent load. This is a significant reduction in fuel consumption. In addition, with the 78 gal. (295 L) fuel capacity the operator gets more than a full 8 hour day at full load. The new XAS 750 JD7 fits cleanly into a similar single-axle, fast-track enclosure. This new enclosure is sound suppressed and smaller than other compressor packages. The XAS 750 JD7 features an Aframe drawbar, surge hydraulic brakes and torsion bar suspension, which provides durability, stability and road performance when in tow, according to the manufacturer. The XAS also is available in a support-mounted configuration. The steel, gull-wing enclosures provide easy access to the engine and all service points, so routine maintenance can be completed quickly and conveniently. For more information, call 800/732-6762 or visit www.atlascopco.us.

Curtiss-Wright Corporation Purchases Wooldridge in 1958 WOOLDRIDGE from page 42

Bowls (7.5-14.2 yds.). Boiling Bowl scrapers had floors that curved upward toward the rear to create a boiling action of the excavated material to maximize each load and used a two-drum cable control system while the Terra Clippers used a three-drum system. Other products offered during the post-war years included three pull ripper models, and blades and cable control units for larger tractors from Allis-Chalmers, Caterpillar, and International Harvester. Brisk sales moved the company to open a sales office in Chicago in the early 1950s. In 1952, Wooldridge revamped its pull scraper line into the Open Bowl series. These scrapers featured cable reeving through the sides of the bowls and were designated with an OS followed by two or three digits. It included six models with heaped capacities from 10.5 yards to the 41 yard OS300, which was considerably larger than anything else on the market.

Wooldridge had entered into a manufacturing agreement with Mississippi Road Services (MRS) in 1955 to provide OS-series pull scrapers, including the OS-300, for its wheel tractors. The scrapers built for MRS were modified by the addition of rear-wheel brakes and a hydraulic load transfer cylinder placed between the yoke of the scraper and the rear of the tractor. Wooldridge also entered into manufacturing agreements with J.D. Adams Company to build scrapers and, in 1951, with Mack Trucks to build LR and LV off-highway trucks at its Sunnyvale plant. Like many other equipment manufacturers, Wooldridge changed the color of its machines from orange to yellow. It also dropped rippers and bulldozer blades from its product line. During this time, Wooldridge sued Caterpillar Tractor Company and the U.S. government, alleging that a large contract for tractors and scrapers had been wrongfully awarded to Cat due to proper procedure not being followed. The

Comptroller General ruled in Wooldridge’s favor, and ordered the contract cancelled. However, by that time over ninety percent of the order had been completed, and Caterpillar was paid for that amount. The case went to the U.S. Court of Appeals, which ruled in favor of the government. In 1955, Wooldridge became a division of the Continental Copper and Steel Industries, Inc., and Harold Guzman became a vice president of Continental. The following year, the Wooldridge Division expanded its motor scraper line to four models: TH0142 (225 hp, 18 yds. heaped); TH-090B (180 hp, 15 yds.); the Cobra Quad, a three-axle unit (300 hp, 26 yards); and the small Cobrette (143 hp from a GM 4-71 engine, 10 yds.). Like the former TC models, “TH” indicated the tractor and the numbers applied to the scraper. Bottom- and reardump wagons were offered for the TH models and the Cobra Quad. All motor scrapers received a new steering system called a Roto-

Gear; the Roto-Gear had twin hydraulic motors that applied torque to a bull gear on the scraper’s yoke to make turns. Curtiss-Wright Corporation (CW) of South Bend, Ind., purchased the Wooldridge Division in 1958. Formed in 1929 by the merger of companies founded by the Wright Brothers and Glenn Curtiss, CW was trying to diversify itself from being solely dependent on the aeronautical business. It had taken over the Studebaker Corporation in 1956 and had spare manufacturing capacity at the South Bend automaker’s factories. It also dedicated 400 acres at the South Bend facility for a proving ground for scrapers. CW continued offering the six pull scraper models, four motor scrapers, and three bottom dump models from Wooldridge, with new model number prefixes: CW for motor scrapers, CWT for pull scrapers, and CWD for bottom dumps. In 1959, it added two larger motor scraper models to the line: CW-220 (27 yards, 375 hp) and CW-226 (36

yards, 375 hp); both got new grille and hood styling. In 1960, the pull scraper line was pared to two models, CWT-8 and CWT-30, and continued slow sales forced further reductions in its entire scraper line. Big problems for CW were that all of its scrapers were cable-operated while most of its competitors were converting to hydraulic controls, and it did not offer a full line of construction equipment, which helped keep buyers loyal to a particular brand. CW ended scraper production in 1961, and the last gasp of the scraper line was a contract to provide CWT18M 18-yard struck/26yard heaped cable-controlled pull scrapers for the U.S. Army in 1963 for use with Caterpillar 830M and Michigan 290M wheel dozers. CW is still in business, but is no longer involved in construction equipment manufacturing.

financial outlook. The trust fund can no longer maintain current levels of investments. “There is no doubt that increased involvement from the private sector in addressing the nation’s transportation challenges can help in the areas where such projects are viable,” Ruane testified. “Make no mistake about it, however, if Congress fails to provide revenues to supplement incoming Highway Trust Fund receipts, thousands of jobs will be lost in every state.” The ARTBA president said the most important thing Congress can do at this stage is to produce bipartisan legislation. “It is time to get on with enacting a multi-year reauthorization bill. The political gridlock here in our Nation’s Capital has led to more transportation gridlock throughout the nation,” he observed. Ruane called on the Senate to produce a new bill that generates the necessary revenues to, at minimum, maintain current levels of surface transportation investment. For more than 20 years, ARTBA, through its P3 division, has been a supporter of reforms to further incentivize private sector investment in transportation improvements. This fall, on Nov. 15 to 16, the association hosts its 23rd annual National P3s in Transportation Conference in Washington, D.C. For more information, visit www.artba.org.
