Church Construction Project Nears Finish After 20 Years By Peter Hildebrandt CEG CORRESPONDENT
Truck & Trailer Section .......................................31-34
A church in Fort Mill, S.C., had the vision to stick to a longtime goal, taking its preparation all the way to fruition. Saint Philip Neri Catholic Church has had construction master plans in hand and virtually ready to go since 1993. Saint Philip Neri Catholic Church’s first building was completed in 1998. Planners also had started off with eight acres on this site and now have 10 acres. Prior to completion of this first structure, a multi-purpose parish center, the congregation met at an area Lutheran church, a Methodist church and even on the grounds of a nearby golf course. After completion of that first building, they next built a ministry building to house all the offices and some classrooms. The last structure to be built is the sanctuary. St. Philip Neri’s annual Italian Festival has helped raise funds for the building project over the years,

The Orlando, Fla., region has struggled with traffic congestion for decades now, in part because the area is a huge a tourist magnet. Interstate 4, which runs directly through the heart of the Orlando urban area, has struggled to keep up with the demands of quickly transporting commuters and tourists through the city. To relieve the burden of all this extra traffic that will only be increasing as time goes by, a light rail system known as SunRail is being built, as Orlando is one of the largest urban areas in the United States without a mass transit system, according to Steve Olson, public information manager, Florida Department of Transportation. Commuter rail transit (CRT) uses steel-wheeled technology equivalent to a conventional train and is generally power-driven by a diesel locomotive. In the case of the SunRail project, existing CSXT railroad tracks will be used for the system’s planned route. SunRail trains will consist of one to three cars in addition to a locomotive. see RAIL page 24

In August, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood released $473 million in unspent highway earmarked funds from appropriations acts
in fiscal years 2003-2006. Those acts contain provisions that authorize LaHood to make the unused funds available for eligible surface transportation projects. The move allows state departments of transportation to use their unspent funds, some of
which are nearly 10 years old, on any eligible highway, transit, passenger rail or port project. In addition to improving aging infrastructure, the funds should help create jobs at a time when hundreds of thousands of construction workers see EARMARK page 62

Coincidentally, Kawasaki also was looking for another dealer for its equipment in the lucrative eastern North Carolina market. The result was that CCS Equipment and Kawasaki teamed up earlier this year to begin offering the Japanese maker’s line of articulated wheel loaders in the eastern half of the Tarheel State. Since the deal was finalized in the last few months, Charles Davis and Todd Snyder, the two partners who run CCS Equipment, have quoted several Kawasaki machines to some of their customers, as well as sold both a model 45ZV-2 and a 65TMV-2. “We have been selling Takeuchi’s line of small wheel loaders, but Kawasaki is the only line of big wheel loaders that we have,” explained Snyder. “By carrying the Kawasaki brand it opens up the marketplace for us as far as the bigger machines for our utility customers and maybe, eventually, we will be able to sell to CCS Equipment and Kawasaki teamed up earlier this year to begin offering Kawasaki’s line of articulated wheel loaders in the eastern half quarries.” of the Tarheel State.

Solley Crane Service purchased its Terex AC 500-2 all terrain crane from Renegar-Driggers Machinery Co.
Solley Crane Service Lifts 140 Tons With Room to Spare For Decatur, Ala.’s Solley Crane Service, hoisting a 140-ton (127 t) object previously meant mobilizing multiple cranes. “For a job that size, we would use two of our 250-ton cranes and do a tandem lift,” explained Ray Solley, president of Solley Crane Service. With its recent acquisition of the 600-ton (544 t) capacity class Terex AC 500-2 all terrain crane, that same 140-ton piece can now be lifted with a single crane, with room to spare. In addition to saving time and money from mobilizing fewer cranes and equipment, “any time you can make a lift with a single crane, it is relatively safer, as it involves less complexity,” added Ronnie Solley, vice president of Solley Crane Service. Shortly after receiving delivery of the new crane, the company put it to work at the Cullman, Ala., railroad yard. They mobilized the AC 500-2 crane and equipment in six truckloads to off-load new press parts for a local automotive parts manufacturer. “The biggest press part was too heavy and large to transport it long distances over the road,” said Ray Solley. While the crane’s counterweight and boom sections were transported to the job site on lowboy trailers, the AC 500-2 was quickly driven to the railroad facility. “With the largest press part weighing 140 tons, the crane required only 110 tons of its 195 tons of counterweight, so we had plenty of capacity left,” said Ronnie Solley.
Putting his extensive crane and heavy equipment experience to good use, Tony Grisham, Solley Crane’s field superintendent, and the Solley Crane crew were able to have the crane ready to lift on the day after the crane was loaded out for the job site. The six truckloads represented a sizeable reduction in the number of transport vehicles it takes to mobilize two conventional 250ton (228 t) cranes. Additionally, according to Ray Solley, it saved the company about a half day of rigging on both ends of the job, “which saved us money.” Over a four-day period at the railroad yard, the AC 500-2 and Solley Crane’s six crew members performed six lifts to transfer all the automotive press pieces. By far, the largest piece was the 140-ton base. Working at a 33-ft. (10 m) radius with 93.8-ft. (28.6 m) of boom, the AC 500-2 quickly lifted the 14-ft.-wide by 30-ft.-long by 15-ft.-high (4.3 by 9.1 by 4.6 m) object from the rail car and moved it to the transporter, so the piece could travel the final 6 mi. (9.7 km) to its destination. “The press base was crated and had lifting eyes, so it was a straight forward rigging and lift job,” said Ray Solley. Reducing the number of cranes at the congested railroad yard also improved lift efficiency. Just over 56-ft. (17 m) long, the Terex AC 500-2 boasts the shortest vehicle length of all the 600-ton capacity cranes. “Accessibility was an issue at this job site, and it was easier using the single crane,”
added Ray Solley. “Both operators commented that it is a very smooth operating crane,” said Ronnie Solley. Picking the Right Crane The 600-ton Terex AC 500-2 all terrain crane represents a monumental shift for Solley Crane. When Ray Solley started the company 40 years ago, the thought of operating a crane and rigging service hadn’t yet entered his mind. “I wanted to find a place for my family and put my civil engineering and construction experience to work,” he said. Ray Solley initially focused on construction and maintenance projects for the heavy industrial businesses located in the Decatur market. The purchase of a used crane led to expansion into the concrete business. “We were blessed with success, and we continued buying bigger and bigger cranes,” he recalled. During the recession of the mid-1980s, the company transitioned away from the concrete business and evolved into the crane and rigging powerhouse it is today. To serve the diverse industrial, chemical, agricultural and utility business base in the region, Solley Crane amassed a wide variety of traditional, hydraulic, hydraulic truck and rough terrain cranes. It also offers helicopter crane service. “We have 50 lifting pieces, and a large portion of the cranes are Terex,” said Ray Solley.
Most of the Terex cranes were purchased from Renegar-Driggers Machinery Co. Inc., a Terex Cranes distributor. The relationship dates back to the mid-1980s. “Bob [Renegar] is an honorable man, and his word is his bond,” said Ray. Bob Renegar, president of RenegarDriggers Machinery Co. Inc., added, “Over the years, the relationship has grown into a great personal friendship as well as a business relationship.” There was a problem, however, with Solley Crane’s varied fleet of lifting equipment. “Until this year, Solley had a big gap in coverage for the industrial and utility markets,” said Renegar. “The 250-ton cranes were not big enough in either capacity or working radius.” Renegar-Driggers approached Solley Crane with the concept of adding the compact 400-ton (362 t) capacity class Terex AC 350/6 crane to its fleet. However, Solley Crane had other needs. “They had a need outside of the AC 350/6’s capacity,” said Renegar. Renegar and Steve Ake, regional business manager of Terex Cranes, reviewed the benefits of the Terex AC 500-2 with Solley Crane. “We met with Ray, Ronnie, Randy Hetrick [Solley Crane’s heavy rigging project manager and safety director], and Frank Barker [Solley Crane’s vice president of see TEREX page 70

Interstate Trailers Celebrates Its 30 Anniversary in 2012 Interstate Trailers is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2012 and the Mansfield, Texas-based manufacturer couldn’t be more excited to share the news with its customers and friends in the industry. “Break out the bubbly and pass me a hub assembly,” said Interstate Trailers Owner Steve Flowers, with a smile. “Think back to 1982 … here we were coming off an economy that had been chewed up by a coyote and spit off the side of a cliff. People said we didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of making it, but something great happened to Interstate Trailers and the construction industry.” That something great Flowers referred to is what he calls, “the winning years” at his company. The company thrived in the 1980s through hard work, dedication, great employees, a passion to manufacturer quality trailers, and earning a respected name for itself, he said. It was not surprising that by the 1990s, Interstate Trailers had well established itself in the industry, supported by many dealers across the country. “We were surrounded by the best dealers
in the business,” he said. Returning and loyal customers also significantly increased. “Interstate Trailers depended — and still does — on repeat business, or as we refer to it … ‘LUCK, or Labor Using Correct Knowledge.’” Flowers added that contractors recognized the company’s commitment to “superior quality, bottom-line value and the win-
ning tradition,” capped off by a new Interstate Trailers manufacturing facility, built in 2000, in Mansfield, Texas. Flowers acknowledged that while there are certainly challenges facing the construction industry today, his company is facing it with an undaunted positivity. “Nobody has been laid off here at Interstate Trailers,” he proudly said. “The average Interstate Trailers employee has 18
years vested in our company and as a wise man once said, ‘the older I get, the more I appreciate experience.’ We at Interstate Trailers value experience and we know our customers do, as well. And that’s how we earn repeat business and gain their respect and trust.” It is this respect, experience and passion with which Interstate Trailers manufactures its products that cause Flowers to be optimistic about his company’s future, for the next 30 years and beyond. “It is the standard that we should be held accountable and I am absolutely confident that it will remain the standard for many years to come. In fact, in addition to LUCK, we also have HOPE, or Having Only Positive Expectations.” With an unrelenting positive approach to business and a steadfast commitment to its customers, Flowers and Interstate Trailers are poised to enjoy many more years of success.

Charlotte Douglas International Lake City… Tramac by Montabert Airport to Build 12,000-Ft. Runway Increases Production
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Charlotte Douglas International Airport said it’s building a 12,000-ft. runway that will reduce noise for some residents under current flight paths, the airport aviation director said. The Charlotte Observer reported that Aviation Director Jerry Orr said the new runway would be longer than existing runways, allowing for nonstop departures “deep into Europe or the Pacific rim,” although no such flights are in the immediate future. Those routes need a longer runway because the planes carry more fuel. Orr said he plans to begin environmental studies next year. Construction can probably begin in 2014. The $160 million project will be the airport’s fifth runway, and its fourth parallel runway. It will allow the airport to land three planes at once, while keeping one runway exclusively for takeoffs. It would be built immediately to the west of the airport’s center runway, 18C-36C. That is the airport’s longest runway today, at 10,000 ft. (3,048 m). Orr told City Council members Aug. 27 that the new runway would be a “noise abatement runway.”
In 2009, when the airport opened its newest runway, near Interstate 485, Orr planned for that runway to be used sporadically. He thought the runway would be needed during bad weather when US Airways has to land several planes quickly to untangle delays. But he said the Federal Aviation Administration has used the runway more frequently than expected. “They are landing over homes to the north and the south, and that has triggered some lawsuits,” Orr said. When the new runway is built, Orr said, the FAA will be able to shift most landings and departures to the middle of the airfield. The new runway is the latest in a series of airport renovations and expansions, worth hundreds of millions of dollars. By mid-decade, the airport will have built two new daily parking decks; expanded the main ticketing area; and built a new, larger roadway for pick-ups and drop-offs. Orr also announced a new food court for concourses D and E on the east side of the airport, and mentioned the possibility of either a 15-gate expansion of Concourse E or a new 11-gate “dog-leg” expansion of Concourse B.
The $160 million project will be the airport’s fifth runway.

Levees to Be Raised in Two NE Louisiana Parishes LAKE PROVIDENCE, La. (AP) Existing levees will be raised in two northeast Louisiana parishes starting in the next few weeks, to provide better protection from the Mississippi River. The levees held during the flooding of 2011, but have settled gradually since being built in 1973, The News-Star of Monroe reported. “This will make the system even stronger,” said Reynold Minsky, president of the 5th Louisiana Levee District board. “It will bring all of East Carroll and most of Concordia to 500-year flood protection.” The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said the levees will be raised about 1.5 ft. (.4 m) at their three lowest spots. Each section is about 1,000 ft. (305 m) long. One spot is 3 mi. south of Transylvania and another 7 mi. south of the town. The third is about 15 mi. south of Vidalia. Work should be finished by November, said Kavanaugh Breazeale, spokesman of the Corps of Engineers’ Vicksburg, Miss., District.
The corps awarded the $464,000 contract to Bickerstaff Brothers Inc., of Batesville, Miss., which furnishes all plant, labor, materials and equipment for the construction. Minsky said of the sections to be raised: “They haven’t created any problems yet, but we badly needed these projects to secure the system for the future. They’re all part of the mainline levee.” Minsky said two larger projects, raising about 2 mi. of the levee in Madison Parish and 60 to 70 mi. in Tensas and upper Concordia parishes, also are planned. “I expect the corps to advertise for bids on the Madison project as early as this month,” Minsky said. “Then the focus will turn toward Tensas Parish.” The levee is about 45 ft. (13.7 m) tall in East Carroll Parish, but drops to as low as 35 to 38 ft. (10.7 to 11.5 m) in Tensas, Minsky said. “Once we raise Madison and Tensas, the entire system will be at 500-year flood protection,” Minsky said.

Sunrail Project Includes 61 Miles of Track, 17 Stations RAIL from page 1
They’ll have the capacity to carry about 150 seated passengers per car. Maximum operating speed is generally between 65-79 mph. Since CRT uses existing rail lines, there is no mixing with commuter or bus traffic. Therefore, commuter rail lines typically connect outlying regions to centralized cities over longer distances (typical travel times can be 45 minutes or longer). Riders need to follow a schedule because CRT provides long-haul, limited-hour service. Operating primarily during peak commute periods, the SunRail system will shuttle users downtown or to work areas and then back home. SunRail proposes to use existing railroad tracks as its main artery. This route would consist of 61 mi. of service to DeLand, through Orlando and downtown Kissimmee to Poinciana. Phase 1 is 31-mi. and will connect DeBary to Sand Lake Road in Orange County. Construction on Phase 1 began in January 2012. Phase 2 will be
built in two sections: the north section from DeBary to DeLand, and the south section from Sand Lake Road through Kissimmee to Poinciana. Phase 2 construction is expected to begin in 2014. SunRail trains will operate every 30 minutes during “peak” morning (5:30 a.m.-8:30 a.m.) and afternoon (3:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m.) rush hours; and at two-hour intervals during non-peak hours. Three types of construction taking place: double tracking, grade crossing improvements and station construction. Double tracking consists of building a second track beside the first track to allow two trains to operate simultaneously in two directions. This will take place between DeBary and Maitland, with the exception of the St. Johns River bridge crossing. The corridor is already double tracked from Winter Park through Sand Lake Road. As part of Phase 1, double tracking also will occur from south of downtown Orlando to the Sand Lake Road Area. During Phase 2, double tracking will take place from Southchase in

southern Orange County through Poinciana, with work happening between seven in the morning and one in the afternoon. This will minimize area road traffic. The Florida SunRail project has been under development for several years, starting with an alternatives analysis in 2004-2005. “In Florida, such road or transit improvement projects as these involve what are called Metropolitan Planning Organizations which are found throughout the country,” explained Olson. “These are established by federal law and it allows local governments to set transportation funding priorities in addition to identifying funding sources. “This has been a project that has been advanced by a number of government partners including the Florida Department of Transportation which has been taking the lead in constructing, designing and building SunRail. At the end of construction operations, the entire system will be turned over to our local government partners in Volusia, Orange, Seminole and Osceola Counties as well as the city of Orlando to operate and maintain.” The operation, maintenance and construction of SunRail will be contracted out by SunRail. They have numerous contracts which have already been awarded, according to Olson. These include their major construc-
tion contract within the right-of-way. Areas of the corridor will be double-tracked. On November 3, 2011 the 61-mi. corridor was purchased from CSX which is currently used for freight transport and by Amtrak; that corridor also will now be used by SunRail, according to Gurnee. SunRail is going through the federal New Starts process which is basically funded with gas tax dollars. One half of the project’s cost will be funded by the federal government, 25 percent by the state of Florida and 25 percent by the local funding partners, which are the four counties and the city of Orlando. This will be a $615 million turnkey commuter rail operation. In addition the state of Florida purchased the tracks, 51.5 mi. from CSX on November 3, 2011 for $432 million. “The tracks now belong to us and our contractors are dispatching all trains, including freight and Amtrak on that track as well as being responsible for the maintenance and operations on that track,” added Olson. “Once that contractor finishes building, we are currently having a tracking for industry review and will bring on board late this year or early next year an operations and maintenance contractor who will take over the things on the corridor. “We have other adjournments; including dividing up into two separate contracts for the station finishes which are the vertical structures on our station platforms. This contract has been just awarded and another has been recently advertised. We have ticket vending machine contracts, two vehicles contracts — one for locomotives and one for country cab cars — and a public marketing contract.” The first phase of operations for SunRail see RAIL page 58

drillings and percolation tests were done on the soils in this area. Based on the soils test report, we thought there was a good chance the soil in this area was going to be pretty good.” The sewer system will tie in with the existing buildings. The water, sewer and fire line (sprinkler system and fire hydrants) for the new building is serviced by the city of Fort Mill. The entire structure amounts to 28,000 sq. ft. (2,601 sq m) in area. “To build a facility like this isn’t something that simply happens,” added Miller. “We’ve been fortunate enough in the past to build two or three facilities for a church. Several of them started much the same way Saint Philip Neri did, out of another facility’s meeting room, school gymnasium or like space. Eventually they have the need to grow. They in turn build a life center, a ministries building, a sanctuary or education facility and before you know it they have 2,000 to 3,000 members. “We’ve worked with churches that were 80 to 100 years old and for ones that are in their first year and they all expand for exactly the same reason, growth and to build facilities that they believe will add value to the
congregation. The plan for Saint Philip Neri here is to have the church open by Easter, 2013.” Miller feels a certain fondness for the church buildings he and his crew have worked on. “The building of a church facility kind of strikes home with me,” added Miller. “A lot of these individuals are spending their own money, time and resources and are very passionate about it. They want something to be proud of and they want it to be right. You have to build it that way; that’s the only way we believe in doing it. “There are always events taking place during the construction of church buildings,” continued Miller. “We always try to be respectful and plan our work accordingly. Recently, Saint Philip Neri held their yearly fundraiser, the Italian Festival in May. We worked with the church and made sure our site was not an inconvenience to the festivities and ensured that the site was safe and secure. “ In addition, Conner Company always strives to get projects finished on time, or, preferably, even early. “Generally, projects of this size could take anywhere from 10 to 14 months to complete. Although we have a finish date, we try as hard as we can to beat that date. We try to
make that our goal. Above all we want to do a good job and we want the owner to be happy,” Miller stated. One challenge to early completion has been that, “All the anchor bolts involve piers that are actually sitting on top of footings and there is a set of anchor bolts just for the glulam structure. That’s probably the trickiest part of the foundation as some of them are at odd angles.” But Miller is confident of his crew’s ability to tackle all the challenges and is proud of the work that’s been done so far. “This is an interesting and fun job for us, a hybrid project with the front part being made of structural steel, a more traditional type building, and then the back being primarily a wooden structure. The building will have some interesting and attractive characteristics, both inside and out. The new metal shingle roof will match the other structures. The sanctuary will match the exterior of the older buildings to a great extent, with precast concrete and brickwork on the upper sections of the building,” Miller concluded. This also has been a good job so far for Jim Kelly, owner of Kel-Mor Construction, the concrete contractor on the job. “For us this has been your typical construction site, nothing out of the norm; everything’s been going really well,”
explained Kelly. “They’ve got a terrific site with good site material and soil to work with. You couldn’t ask for nicer dirt to dig in. “We’ve got small excavators that we’re excavating out the footings with, but other than that we don’t have a lot of equipment to do what we do. We dig the footings; put the rebar and the anchor bolts in and then pour the concrete in the hole. The rebar is in the footings.” Mother Nature has been kind to Kel-Mor according to Kelly. Though there has been rain during the work, there has also been plenty of sun to dry things out. As long as there is no silty mud inside the forms when a pour is done everything will be good to go, according to Kelly. “You don’t want any standing water inside the forms, but if the forms are just damp that won’t hurt anything. So far this job has been a real pleasure. The suppliers have been good. All the right safety apparel is worn by our workers on the job. Everything has gone smoothly so far.,” Kelly stated.

The auto shutdown feature turns off the engine after an owner-determined period of inactivity to help save fuel while reducing emissions, idle time operation, and subsequent wear on the power train and hydraulics. An on board weighing (OBW) system allows contractors to view the weight and the number of loads carried via JDLink, improving project management and equipment utilization. This OBW system not only allows the customer to track and optimize payload performance of an E-Series ADT, but also will aid in maximizing the life of the tires and chassis. The truck has mirror-mounted load indicator lights that illuminate for the loading operator as the truck approaches capacity (yellow), is at capacity (green), or overload (red). An integrated tire pressure monitoring system helps maximize traction, tire life and fuel efficiency and access to JDLink Ultimate allows customers to check tire pressures remotely and receive alerts when the pressure gets too low or too high. For those fleet managers, owners or operators looking to get the most out of their equipment, a standard three-year subscription of JDLink Ultimate continuously collects and transmits machine data for machine management. The system enables timely preventive maintenance and remote diagnostics, as well as the coordination of machines working on multiple job sites to get the right machine to the right place at the right time.

Crushing, Screening & Recycling Section Atlantic Equipment Celebrates 10 Years as Top Dealer In scrap handling facilities from coast-tocoast, the distinctive green machines from Sennebogen are one of the industry’s most familiar sights, loading trucks and barges, feeding shredders and stacking bale. Today, Sennebogen is recognized everywhere. But 10 years ago, it was a different story. “When we began selling Sennebogen, we were taking in a machine that nobody had ever heard of,” recalled Garland Miles, sales manager of Atlantic Equipment & Supply Inc., based in Hampton, Va. “Sales were not easy. We were going to the expense and the time to basically give customers a machine and hope we could convert it into a sale once they could see how it worked and why we were promoting it to them.” In 2012, Atlantic has been celebrating its 10th year with Sennebogen after winning the manufacturer’s “Dealer of the Year” award as the top selling distributor in 2011. Constantino Lannes, president of Sennebogen LLC, said, “It’s a pleasure to

have this opportunity to recognize the great work Atlantic Equipment has been doing for us for so many years. They show what can be accomplished if you develop and serve the territory well.”
(L- R) are Clayton Parker, sales; Garland Miles, sales manager; and Jim Smelgus, president, Atlantic Equipment.
Rooted in Equipment Service and Repair Jim Smelgus, president of Atlantic, founded the firm as an equipment repair and service business more than 20 years ago. When Erich Sennebogen arrived from Germany looking for someone to help launch his family’s material handlers in America, Smelgus’ focus on service and parts dovetailed perfectly with the company’s blueprint for longterm success.
“These weren’t the first true material handlers we had seen,” said Smelgus. “But most scrap yards were still using cable cranes and antiquated excavators that were converted with some kind of grapple. Being first doesn’t always mean better. The first line of material handlers to come here failed because of service.” Atlantic entered the equipment sales business with customers’ confidence that Smelgus and his team would stand behind the product. Sennebogen’s plan was to reinforce that confidence with reliable parts supply and excellent application support. Smelgus noted that Sennebogen’s nation see ATLANTIC page 42

Atlantic Team Helped Build Sennebogen’s U.S. Presence ATLANTIC from page 37
wide sales success is still rooted in its commitment to the service side of the business. After establishing a base in Charlotte, N.C., Sennebogen built a 54,000 sq. ft. parts warehouse and training facility in the nearby town of Stanley. Recently, Lannes announced expansion plans that will nearly double its size to 100,000 sq. ft. by the end of 2012. “What they have done to improve the product in just the past 5 years has been phenomenal,” Smelgus said. “It just goes to show you that they are very committed to the North American market and they have listened carefully to both the dealers and their customers. Through that, you can see why so many equipment customers have become Sennebogen customers.” Support Leads Sales Growth According to Garland Miles, the second key point in Sennebogen’s growth strategy was to avoid growing too fast. “Erich Sennebogen’s game plan from the get-go was to focus on quality and service. He didn’t start off dumping machines with lowball prices, he did it the old fashioned way: by proving the machine was a good one.” The company set a policy that it would not sell a machine until a servicing dealer was in place locally and the complete parts list was on the shelf.

Volvo CE Achieves Gold Status in I Make America Campaign The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) announced that Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) has joined the elite ranks of the I Make America campaign’s Gold-level company supporters. I Make America is a grassroots campaign that was launched in September 2010 to dramatically improve American manufacturing policies to create more jobs in the United States and keep our economy competitive with other countries. “We commend Volvo CE for achieving Gold status in the I Make America campaign,” said Dennis Slater, president of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers. “As a member of AEM, Volvo CE exemplifies the commitment we need from all manufacturers around the country to send the message to Congress and the White House that our economy is in urgent need of a new manufacturing policy that will create jobs.” “We all want the best for America,” said Bill Law, head of corporate communications of Volvo’s construction division in the Americas. “Initiatives such as I Make America are excellent ways to focus every-
one’s attention on using the muscle of the construction industry to get the giant wheel of the U.S. economy spinning at top speed again and as such Volvo is very pleased to be able to play a part in the campaign.” According to AEM, I Make America Gold-Level supporters are an important group of companies that have achieved participation benchmarks marking them as industry leaders, including significant employee involvement; outreach to their state, local and federal legislators; promoting campaign sign-ups at trade shows and with allied trade associations; and production of a video telling the story of how their companies, employees and communities “make America.” Volvo currently is in the process of making a $100 million investment in its facilities in Shippensburg, PA bringing local production of some core products to North America and creating a modern customer and demonstration center as well as creating an Americas Headquarters facility on the current campus.

Atlas Copco Offers Compacting Versatility Atlas Copco Construction Equipment is introducing six new hydraulic compactors designed for use on carriers in the 2,205to 88,185-lb. (1,000 to 40,000 kg) class. A key design feature is that the housing attachment is offset at 15 degrees, improving the force distribution on the vibrator plate while further reducing the stress and wear on the compactor, according to the manufacturer. These compactors are virtually maintenance free due to Atlas Copco’s PermaLube system, which keeps the bearing flooded with lubricating oil. The integrated control valve regulates hydraulic flow and pressure to prevent motor overload, particularly if compactors are used on different carriers. The hydraulic motors are protected by a regeneration feature that allows the unit to be connected to a uni-direction or bidirectional circuit.
The new Atlas Copco compactors are easy to attach — no special mount is required for fitting to carriers. Standard adapter plates and attachment brackets make attaching the compactors to carriers simple. Atlas Copco can custom-make plate extensions to fit specific applications. Optional backfill blades make compactors easier to use: they level the way, enabling work to progress smoothly while deflecting material.

The Carbide Cutter G3 is available with 51-, 61- and 71-in. (129, 155 and 180 cm) cutting widths. All models are offered with a variety of carbide-tipped and heat-treated steel teeth.
As part of its VMLogix line of products, Loftness introduced the Carbide Cutter G3 high-performance mulching head attachment for skid steers. This new generation product incorporates the latest cutting-tooth technologies and power drive systems, while maintaining the rugged reliability expected of Loftness equipment, according to the manufacturer. The Carbide Cutter G3 is available with 51-, 61- and 71-in. (129, 155 and 180 cm) cutting widths. All models are offered with a variety of carbide-tipped and heat-treated steel teeth to match any job application. The precisely engineered spiral tooth pattern on the rotor ensures continuous tooth contact with the material being cut. For maximum cutting performance, the Carbide Cutter G3 features a two-stage cutting chamber with staggered counter teeth and a shear bar. This combination of features results in small particle sizes, while eliminating the jamming and wrapping issues associated with competitive products. An optional primary-stage shear bar also is available for ultra-fine mulching. The mulching heads operate at 1,700 to 2,150 rpm and feature a four-groove banded belt drive with spring-loaded tensioner. They come standard with a fixed-displacement, piston-style motor that delivers hydraulic power at 97-percent efficiency, which is much higher than traditional gear-type motors offer. The fixed-displacement motor can be upgraded to the V-Drive system that includes a variable-displacement motor with
load-sensing technology. Under light loads, the V-Drive system operates at maximum rpm, and as the load increases, it automatically lowers the rotor rpm to maximize torque. The mulching head offers full rotation, due to specially designed hose routing. This feature also allows the unit to easily position trees with the adjustable push bar and welded claw hooks. The push bar can be used to push falling brush and trees away from the power unit, and the claw hooks can pull material into position for proper feeding. Hydraulic push bar adjustment is optional. The Carbide Cutter G3 also is designed for maximum durability. For instance, highstrength Hardox steel is used in areas exposed to high wear. Furthermore, the Carbide Cutter G3 is equipped with a custom hydraulic control valve that protects the unit from pressure spikes, and it also stops the rotor quickly on shut-down without damaging the components. Other standard features include an onboard pressure gauge, steel deflector chains and adjustable skid shoes. Tooth options include standard carbide teeth, planer carbide teeth and quadco planer blades. Loftness manufactures the VMLogix line of vegetation management equipment, the GrainLogix line of grain-bagging equipment, and the CropLogix line of crop shredders.

is the construction of the first 12 stations. Phase 2 North includes a single station and Phase 2 South includes an additional four stations. They are currently under construction with the building of Phase 1. This includes clearing for double tracking of areas that are currently being turned single-tracked portions. Phase 1 of the project is well under construction. Most of the construction is happening on the northern side of the project right now. Three station sites are under development. Phase 1 has 12 stations total. Phase 2 will take the system from DeBary to Deland in addition to traveling from the Sand Lake Road location on the south side of Orlando. Phase 2 will go from DeBary to Deland in addition to going from the Sand Lake Road location to Poincianna Station in Osceola County. When completed there will be 17 stations. “We are working on that,” said Olson. “Then work will start on another handful of stations, the second round of stations for Phase 2. The distances at the end of the project will be greater while the number of stations will be fewer. “The system will run similar to light rail when you get to downtown Orlando, with quick stops between stations. It will then have more of a commuter rail flavor as you get farther out into the outlying areas of the system.” Archer Western Contractors is working in conjunction with Railworks, another contractor on this project. There also is a wide variety of subcontractors. WBE Environmental is contracted to work on both the rail and station portions of this project. Their primary work is erosion control to help protect the environment while the project is going on, according to Joelle DeVane, WBE Environmental owner. “One of the things the general contractors are trying hard to do is to make sure that the areas being disturbed, have little to no impact on the adjacent marshes and water systems,” said DeVane. “We are trying to keep them free of any contaminates or debris caused by the construction process. “Any time you disturb the land and take out the natural root systems, the soil no longer has an anchor to keep it in place and is now more likely to suffer from wind or rain erosion. In the areas that construction has begun, we have put different controls in place to try to slow this process and to protect neighboring properties. This is a requirement in construction and the general contractor is very conscious about doing their part to protect our environment.” Federal and State regulations require that during construction erosion must be minimized and runoff properly managed. Any

project an acre or more requires that the site be monitored on a weekly basis and after a half inch of rain. The requirement applies to both commercial and residential development projects, according to DeVane. WBE Environmental, which also does business as Florida Silt Fencing, is responsible for placing erosion controls on-site for
this project. The devices consist of silt fences, tree protection and other types of turbidity barriers, which are all temporary controls. As areas are completed, permanent controls, will be put into place, such as sod and other landscaping items. “If work such as digging is being done

around a pond or natural preserve area, controls will be put in place to keep the area protected from pollutants and wind blown debris caused by the construction activity. Our work is small and not typically noticed, because our work doesn’t exist when the job is done. We are more behind the scenes and most people wouldn’t know what we do or even why we do it,” DeVane said. “If a person asks what we do, we ask if they have ever noticed the black fence around a site under construction. If they have seen it, then they know what we do or understand a little better, what we are talking about. “Companies like ours are typically one of the first on-site, placing whatever type of control is required to do the job,” DeVane continued. “We take care of what needs to be done, which allows construction to move forward with the confidence that the environment is protected and being impacted as little as possible. We are on-site, at times everyday depending on the progress and need.” WBE Environmental has worked on four of the stations where construction has begun. They have put up silt fence around wetlands and preserve areas, where needed. Tree protection also is something they will do for trees that are to remain on-site, generally using orange fencing that makes the area very visible to construction crews. The protection is typically put at the drip line, which is the distance the root system extends from the trunk of the tree. All of the temporary controls put in place have a lifespan of under a year. As construction is completed in areas, permanent controls, such as grass and landscaping will be placed. RWH Construction is the rebar installer on this project. starting with installing rebar in the footers on the station platform foundations. “At each of the stations, one station is on one side of the tracks and the other is on the other side,” explained Russell Henderson, owner of RWH Construction. “Each footer contains about 500 pounds of steel inside the concrete. We both furnish the rebar and install it. The rebar is three-foot, five-foot and six foot in size. This will be a two-year project. We’ve been out there a little over a month and have gotten material on the ground.” Though the SunRail, when finished, might not be as exciting to ride as nearby Walt Disney World’s world famous monorail, Central Florida commuters will still be thrilled with all the time saved each day on their way to and from work.
