Austell, Ga.’s Flooded Houses Come Down September 2009 brought unmercifully heavy rain to Austell, Ga., causing widespread flooding and other storm-related damage throughout the city. More than 700 homes were flooded by the 21 inches of rain that fell, many of which were so severely damaged that they floated off their foundations and became ruins in a very short space

of time. Now the demolition and cleanup of the houses that couldn’t be salvaged has begun. Southern Demolition & Environmental, Atlanta, is currently working towards completion of the demolition of nine of the 19 homes that the city of Austell, Ga., has contracted to be removed.

Three specialized processes were planned to recycle the existing pavement materials at the site and reuse them. “This will be the first time all three processes will be used together on a single pavement reconstruction project in the

After an airliner was intentionally crashed into each of the World Trade City towers in New York City — with a third flown into the Pentagon in Washington and a fourth into the ground before it could hit another Washington target — the world in general, and America in particular, was stunned.

VDOT and its contractor, Lanford Brothers Inc., of Roanoke, began the project in late March.

Coble Trench Safety Hosts OSHA Training in Knoxville Area By Mary Reed CEG CORRESPONDENT

It’s been said the longest chapter in the book is the chapter of accidents. However, with the recent opening of its eleventh branch in Knoxville, Tenn., safety specialist Coble Trench Safety (CTS) is tackling this problem by providing OSHA training courses to customers in the area. These courses are in addition to the company’s rental and sales of a wide selection of trench safety, confined space, traffic safety and supporting equipment. Based in Greensboro, N.C., Coble Trench Safety describes its OSHA courses as being designed to keep personnel up-to-date on the latest OSHA standards and safe business practices as well as helping ensure crews have the information they need to comply with relevant OSHA standards and guidelines, thus promoting safety and preventing potential fines and work stoppages. At present the Knoxville branch offers two regularly scheduled OSHA courses: one focuses on OSHA’s requirement of a “competent person” being present during trenching and excavation work, and the other deals with confined space entry awareness. The location also provides OSHA 10, OSHA 30 and flagger training as required by customers. Both courses have been approved for continuing education credit by local credit granting authorities, such as the Water Pollution Control System Operators Certification Commission, North Carolina Water Board, North Caroline Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors and other organizations. Professional development and continuing education hours also may be available for other organizations as all boards and commissions do not specifically approve training programs, leaving the relevancy of material to the discretion of the attendee. “Classes cover the technical standard from OSHA as well as practical hands-on applications of the standards. In our ‘competent person’ class, we begin by covering what OSHA does and some of

• ventilation of confined spaces • alternate entry procedures • use of gas monitoring equipment and identifying potential for dangerous situations • duties and standards for personnel including rescue workers • use of gas monitoring equipment • alternative entry procedures While the courses are popular with companies, CTS also had held several training classes, each attended by more than 30 employees of the Tennessee Department of Transportation. Coble Trench Safety typically provides competent person and confined space entry courses every four weeks at its branches and select outlying locations, with open enrollment for classes. The company also has begun scheduling routine Response to the training has been very positive among the OSHA 10 classes at some many attendees who have come to Coble for safety training. locations, again with open enrollment.

Spectra Integrated Systems Becomes SITECH Mid-Atlantic Spectra Integrated Systems, the leading provider of construction technology for contractors and construction surveyors in the Carolinas and Virginia for the past decade, is changing its name to SITECH Mid-Atlantic LLC. But the name is the only thing that’s changing, clarifies Ed Upchurch, president. “The name change is a branding strategy for Trimble and its dealers to project a homogenous image. It won’t change our service or tech support.” In fact, he added, as a top-tier Trimble distributor, it is still as committed — if not more so — to providing superior products, services training and support. “Our philosophy hasn’t changed,” Upchurch said. “It’s still about providing service and technical expertise. We are an applications solution provider and we lead the way in emerging technology and support.” Always at the forefront of technology, in its early days, the company focused on construction laser sales and service, later branching out with the first machine-control systems for construction and agriculture and then 3-D machine control systems using GPS or robotic total stations. “We still have all the technologies today that we had years ago when we started — lasers, robotics and GPS — but our focus continues to be on growth with emerging technologies, which remains a driving force for everything we do,” Upchurch said. Originally a group of factory-direct stores owned by Spectra Precision/Trimble, the company has grown to become among Trimble’s largest independently owned dealerships for the past 10 years, with four locations — Charlotte, N.C. its headquarters; Raleigh, N.C.; Charleston, S.C.; and Richmond, Va.

(L-R) First Row: Chris Lee, Jeff Hamm, Christian Galdamez, Alyson Ramos, Annie Molkenbuhr, Matt Mulhern. Second row: Andy Donovan, Randy Rohrer, Ben Nann, Mark Smith, Paul Salisbury, Ed Upchurch. Third row: Pete Rapp, Sean Frizelle, Brian Aravjo, James Stephenson, Ron Whitaker and Paul Thomas.

A constant for SITECH Mid-Atlantic is its core values as well as several original employees, both contributing to the company’s expertise. Its operation is multi-faceted, covering field service and installation, including parts and inventory for the heavy highway, agriculture, marine and software businesses. Trimble comprises 95 percent of SITECH Mid-Atlantic’s business but it also carries brands that augment its primary line, including Rajant, Intuicom and Minds. A contributing factor to the rapid return on investment is the elimination of the need for stakes when grading.

Shown with several different Trimble models and other top selling instruments are (L-R) Andy Donovan, Pete Rapp, Matt Mulhern, Ron Whitaker, Randy Rohrer, Ben Nann, Ed Upchurch and Paul Salisbury.

“That saves labor,” Upchurch said. “The process from earthmoving to rough grading to fine grading is all guided by these systems.” Beyond grading guidance, Trimble systems provide a connected work site. “Emerging technology will continue to evolve on the machines, providing more ways to connect the office and the site, and machine to machine,” Upchurch said. Benefits of connecting a job site include: reduction of unnecessary travel time and fuel costs; reduction of machine downtime through remote machine diagnostics; organization of project data; notification for

machine operators of design updates; realtime status reports; reduction of need for site measurement; better use of personnel and equipment, keeping operators in the field and machines working. “SITECH Mid-Atlantic also is an agriculture dealer for Trimble providing guidance, spray control, water management, land leveling and software for the complete, connected farm,” Upchurch said. By providing an industry-specific connected work site, the Trimble system helps farms be in compliance with the EPA. The combination of Trimble Business Center and VisionLink help a contractor with bidding, project management and controlling costs. “It helps manage assets and productivity,” Upchurch said. “You can monitor vehicles — their location, movement, idle vs. run time, queue dwell time, oil pressure, fuel level, maintenance intervals, bearing wear…” The system is capable of monitoring mixed fleets (brands) and can monitor mixed assets, from dozer to water trucks and pickup trucks. Upchurch is confident contractors will benefit from all of this technology — and, he knows, they will have more opportunities to use it. “The economy will improve, and as it does, a wide array of work will emerge,” Upchurch said. “SITECH Mid-Atlantic is poised to be a major part of that. Our name change reflects our determination to grow as things change, as technology changes, and we’ll be there, helping businesses do their work more efficiently and more productively.” (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)

Southern Demolition, Volvo Rents Opt to Support Cause “We really like the fact that a portion of our rental money goes to fund breast cancer awareness and prevention, but in addition to that, having a pink machine really draws a lot of attention and turns heads. We like that too. We’re close with Volvo Rents and our rental coordinator, Todd Caskey, at the Duluth location.” Volvo Rents donates 10 percent of the rental proceeds every time this machine goes out. It is part of the “Color For A Cause” program, which colors Volvo iron according to the support it will champion, in this machine’s case, the Susan G.

President, Gina Ragsdale, stated that the nine homes they have contracted with the city to remove are in the same neighborhood which makes it convenient for equipment moves. She went on to say that overall, “the city of Austell has been a real pleasure to work with.” Gina’s husband, Matt Ragsdale, the company’s operations manager, handles all the logistics and project coordination and the majority amount of the bidding process. The Ragsdales try to keep the company’s projects as “green” as possible, but for this one, Matt Ragsdale stated, “unfortunately the total percentage of recyclable product from these flooded structures is rather low, probably around 15 to 20 percent. Since the homes were built in the late 1950s and early 60s most required asbestos abatement and were under water for some time so there wasn’t a lot that could be recycled.” The machine of choice for the demolition projects, and a machine that Southern Demolition has rented many times in the past, is a pink Volvo EC140B excavator from Volvo Rents in Duluth, Ga. It’s the “Digging for the Cure” machine and a portion of the rental fee is donated to the Susan G.

Komen For the Cure organization. The machine, equipped with a 1.75 cu. yds. (1.3 cu m) Geith bucket and Solesbee’s thumb, is precisely what Southern Demolition needs to make quick work of home demolition. “We request the rental of this particular machine a lot,” said Ragsdale. “The 140 is the perfect size for residential home demolition. We also like it because we do a lot of work in downtown Atlanta and for that we need a machine that can fit into tight spaces. It moves material well and the reach of the machine is close to that of a 210 sized machine. We love it because it’s strong and burns less fuel than the larger machines used in demolition. “We really like the fact that a portion of our rental money goes to fund breast cancer awareness and prevention, but in addition to that, having a pink machine really draws a lot of attention and turns heads. We like that too. We’re close with Volvo Rents and our rental coordinator, Todd Caskey, at the Duluth location,” he added. Caskey commented that the company “is a very charitable-minded organization. The culture of giving back runs deep at all Volvo Rents locations through our ‘Color For A Cause’ public service program, in which a machine is

painted in a particular color scheme to support a worthy organization with a portion of the rental proceeds going to that charity. “Our Volvo EC140B is painted pink and 10 percent of the rental proceeds of the machine go to the Susan G. Komen For the Cure organization. Starting its fourth year in service as a rental unit, the pink EC140B has generated thousands of dollars for Susan G. Komen For the Cure,” stated Caskey. Renting a machine to support a good cause, a changing business model and good old hard work have helped Southern Demolition see year after year of growth. “We’ve grown every year — even during this recession period. We’ve been fortunate. Years ago, we used to do projects for builders and developers where they had the need for demolition to make way for new houses and other structures. When the economy turned, we shifted towards obtaining contracts with property owners of derelict structures that needed to be torn down. We help the property owner to dispose of a structure prior to potential code enforcement violations. During this economic downturn, there’s an abundance of vacant properties due to fore see FLOOD page 52

Still Going Strong After Nearly 60 Years in the Industry Some people claim age is just a number, or that you’re only as old as you feel. Harold Howell appears to be one of those people. At age 77, he’s still going strong as the owner of Harold Howell Construction Equipment, in Jupiter, Fla. “Albert E. Finley hired me in 1952 at $.60 per hour to work in the parts department. This was the old A. E. Finley organization: North Carolina Equipment Co., FloridaGeorgia Tractor Co. and Hampton Roads Tractor & Equipment and A. E. Finley & Associates were all owned by Mr. Finley,” Howell began. Howell’s journey took him to Miami to work for Florida-Georgia Tractor Co. in 1955. In 1962 he went with H. F. Mason, Albert Finley’s nephew, when he bought part of the corporation and formed H. F. Mason Equipment with headquarters in Lakeland, Fla. Howell spent two years in Miami and then moved to West Palm Beach when that territory opened. “I liked the territory because it was so diversified. I called on the area around the Everglades, Palm Beach, West Palm Beach Harold Howell has spent 60 years in the construction equipment industry, 50 of and the Bahamas. Every day was exciting because every day was different with such a them as a sales representative. diverse customer base.” Northwest draglines, Cedarapids crushers and pavers, Etnyre distributors and Rogers trailers were the accounts. Howell stayed until 1976 when he was promoted to vice president and sales manager and moved to Lakeland. He spent 10 years in corporate. “In 1985 I went into business for myself and moved back to West Palm Beach. I buy and sell used equipment but specialize in draglines, having started as a dragline sales9409 Boyce Ave. man in the early 1960s.” He has become known as the “guru” of Orlando, FL 32824 draglines to many around the country and even outside the United States, which he said he takes as a compliment. “In the early days there were no hydraulic excavators,” he said. “The biggest change has been hydraulic excavators. When I started, contractors were EXCAVATORS, LOADERS, DUMP TRUCKS, using a dragline to lay pipe. Then we took on ROLLERS, GRADERS, ETC. a hydraulic excavator account and demonstrated it on a project in West Palm Beach. From then on it was all hydraulic excavators Roger Fisher WE BUY USED for laying pipe. The machines continued to EQUIPMENT 407-383-4888 get bigger and today there are big mining machines.” Howell is still working with some of the contractors from his early days in the business, but now he’s dealing with the third generation family members. “More and more of the small guys disappeared as they were merged into large comEMAIL: Roger.Fisher@TQuipFlorida.com panies until they came to dominate the busi-

ness, but there are still many individual entrepreneurs with companies that I have been successful dealing with,” he said. Changing Times “In the early days a handshake sealed the deal and financing was 25 percent down and the balance over 36 months,” Howell said. “It used to be one on one selling but with the Internet it isn’t like that now. You used to sell features and benefits; now with the Internet and export you have to have the best machine with the cheapest price and you are selling to people you don’t really know. I like the one on one better.” Auctions have become Howell’s biggest competition he said. “I have learned to coexist with them because they are here to stay. It is the same with the Internet. Some days I love the Internet but some days I hate it. When I was first in a territory there were a couple of auction companies and they were only around when someone was liquidating their business. “Now there are like 80 auctions going on all over the country.” Export also has become a large part of Howell’s business. “When I first started we didn’t do much export. I did cover the Grand Bahamas Islands and I had a couple of contractor friends doing a lot of work over there so I would go over a couple of times a month to see them and sell them some machines. Nowadays at least 80 percent of my business is export,” he said. Now he not only buys equipment but also brokers it. Most of the equipment he buys is draglines since that is his “first love.” “I do have verbal contracts with several large contractors to sell their used equipment. They used to always trade it in to dealers. But now I am their liquidator, I sell their machines for them instead of trading them in.” Family and Friends Working with him in the business is his wife, Lotta, who is secretary/treasurer and his daughter, Deborah, who is his office manager and webmaster. “I’m very big on the Internet. I have a beautiful Web site that is current at all times. My daughter is my Web master and she keeps it current. If someone wants something I’ve got for sale I hope they would call me but if not they would go to my Web site. Its got pictures, hours and complete specifications, serial number and price of the machines I own and the ones I have for sale. Mostly export deals come from the Internet because the guy in South America, or where ever he is, has a computer also. see HOWELL page 52

SANY America has established a program with GE Capital to expand wholesale and retail financing solutions for distributors and their end user clients. The news comes as the U.S. based subsidiary of Chinese heavy equipment manufacturer SANY Heavy Industry continues to grow its production and distribution base in North America. “Our company has outlined very aggressive growth strategies in the North American heavy equipment markets,” said SANY America Finance Manager Scott Morrish. “As we accelerate the expansion of our dealer networks, our partnership with GE Capital will afford our customers a wide variety of financing solutions,” he added. The announcement comes only months after SANY Heavy Industry joined the Financial Times Global 500 List, an annual ranking of the world’s strongest firms by market capitalization. SANY Heavy

Industry’s financial stability, coupled with the strength and flexibility of GE Capital, will allow dealers and end users to update existing fleets and add new products while maximizing profitability and value. “We are pleased to support SANY’s expansion strategy by offering both attractive inventory financing for SANY dealers and compelling retail financing for enduser commercial customers,” said Kristi Webb, general manager, GE Capital, Dealer Finance. “GE’s deep expertise and broad coverage network in the heavy equipment market makes us uniquely able to assist SANY as they build their U.S. business.” In late August, SANY America moved to its new 400,000 sq. ft. corporate headquarters in Peachtree City, Ga. The facility features 60,000 sq. ft. of office space and 340,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing area, where the company will assemble its line of crawler cranes, hydraulic excavators and concrete pump trucks.

Stereotyped as Rednecks, Griffin’s Crew Earned Respect GRIFFIN from page 1

David H. Griffin Jr. wasn’t stunned for long. Two days after the towers fell, with concrete dust still covering lower Manhattan and authorities scrambling to ward off feared additional attacks, Griffin drove with his wife and children to New York from his home in Greensboro, N.C. His mission was to help. Griffin took to the immense clean-up project with more than good citizenship, which virtually everyone in America was feeling at that moment. Cynicism and partisanship had been quickly shelved in those post-attack days. American flags flew everywhere and there was no shortage of volunteer help available. But Griffin also was vice president of a family firm, D.H. Griffin Wrecking Company, which in 2001 had been around for more than 40 years. He knew demolition and he knew he wanted to put himself in a position to help New York City begin to shake off the effects of its catastrophic structural collapse. Ten years later, Griffin looks back on the days that followed his arrival in New York City with the same down-to-earth, pragmatic calm that stood him in good stead in the days of national panic. He declines to talk about it at length, embellishes nothing in the telling, and seems unchanged by the heady experience of being a major player in NYC recovery efforts while the whole world watched. He received no special public honors for his work, nor is his name engraved on plaques around the city. He likes that just fine. “The heroes were the firemen and rescue responders who worked and died that day,” he said quietly from his office in Greensboro almost precisely a decade after his fateful drive to New York. “They’re the ones who deserve the honors.” Griffin’s story, however, deserves recalling, heroic or not, because it is about construction and demolition expertise, personal gumption and character. It also is about a man from the rural South who had the chutzpah to take on New Yorkers on their own concrete-and-asphalt turf and win their

respect. “They called us all kinds of names,” a North Carolina newspaper quoted Griffin telling some Kiwanis club members the year after the towers fell. He and a few D.H. Griffin crew members working with him were rudely, if teasingly, stereotyped. “They thought for sure I was a redneck from North Carolina. They called us the Clampetts and asked if we sat around and played banjos on our porches.” R.E.S.P.E.C.T The day Griffin arrived in New York City, he parked his wife and children in a hotel, put on a hardhat and walked toward the debrisladen site. To get there, he had to cross two barricaded lines. The first line, five blocks from the scene, was unguarded and he just walked through it without challenge. At the second barricaded line a block farther on, police and National Guardsmen patrolled. Griffin looked wistfully beyond them toward the destruction. The serendipitous arrival of a Salvation Army donut truck at that moment distracted the armed guards, and Griffin took a deep breath, crossed through, and walked on ahead. This may have been the only 2001 security failure that no one rues today. Griffin was appalled by what he saw at the scene, including piles of debris 50 ft. (15 m) high. He walked over to where various emergency department employees were working through 15-ft. (4.5 m) high mounds of debris in the street, the outer edge of the remains of one of the towers. At one point, the workers labored in the shadow of an upright steel girder that posed a threat to their safety, and discussion began about how to remove it. Griffin spoke up, revealing a Southern accent notably different from everyone else on the site as well as evident knowledge of how to proceed. People turned to him wondering who the heck he was. It was the beginning of a general recognition of Griffin’s demolition expertise. Engineers on site began to consult with him, though he was not yet deemed to be an authority: It took two full days for

didn’t change much. Many 100hour weeks were recorded by Griffin along with everyone else working there. Griffin said he was away from the site 19 days in 8 months. “It was stressful,” he said. “It was tough, tiring in many ways.”

Griffin and other clean-up personnel worked a 24-hour-a-day, seven-days-a-week removal process.

Cranes, dump trucks and excavators with grapple attachments were used to dismantle, separate, load and haul away the mountains of debris.

New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani to put him in charge of demolition — not bad for a “redneck.” General respect for his professional judgment was still to come, however. It arrived about two weeks later when on-site debate ensued about removal of a steel curtain wall that stood shakily 12 stories high. Contractors wanted to call in cranes, hoist workers with torches, and cut the structure apart where it stood. Griffin and his company workmates, including his cousin Rusty Griffin, thought the crane approach too time-consuming and unsafe. As skeptics watched, Griffin simply attached cables to the huge upright shard and pulled it back and forth till it toppled. In less than an hour, the structure was down and being cut apart safely on the ground. “Getting that curtain wall down saved millions of dollars,” Griffin

said. “There wasn’t anyone else around to make such decisions. We had the ability to make the decision and to move on.” The decision cemented his reputation as a decisive leader, a label he had begun to earn a few days earlier when he had summarily fired a contractor that wasn’t fulfilling the terms of its contract. Griffin was subsequently told he had fired a Mafia-front company, which he admits concerned him for a few days. Working from a trailer parked a block from the site, Griffin and other clean-up personnel settled into a 24-hour-a-day, 7-days-aweek removal process. His quarters improved in a few months. His office was moved to the American Express Tower, also known as the Three World Financial Center, after it was repaired, having been heavily damaged by the falling towers. However, his work schedule

Looking Back Griffin smoothly transitioned back to work with the family company after the twin-tower clean-up was completed in 2002 — four months ahead of schedule and hundreds of millions of dollars under budget. His was a successful stewardship by just about any yardstick, and at the end of it, Griffin simply resumed work at D.H. Griffin Wrecking. In 2009, the company was listed by Demolition & Recycling International as the 6th largest demolition / recycling company in the world. Today, David H. Griffin Jr. is president of the companies, which includes affiliated new construction, environmental, site preparation and general contracting divisions. Its corporate office still is in Greensboro, but the company operates from offices in eight states from Virginia to Texas. Griffin’s father who founded the company still puts in a full day and is, Griffin said, “the real boss.” What Griffin took away from the New York City experience was many memories, some of which he obviously is reticent to talk about. He said it seems like it happened three or four years ago, not 10 years. “It has gone fast.” Memories aside, Griffin talks mostly about the excruciating demands placed upon everyone working the project — physical, emotional, and spiritual — as well as the relationships forged. “It was a lot of pressure and the stakes were as high as they get,” he said. “It was pretty much a baptism by fire. Looking back, I learned an awful lot. I was hoeing a rough row, but I had a lot of good, smart people working with me.” Construction equipment called in to dismantle, separate, load and haul away the mountains of fallenbuilding debris was not exotic at all — mostly cranes, heavy dump trucks and excavators with grapple see GRIFFIN page 58

United States and implements research by the Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, VDOT’s research division,” the release continued. The contract was awarded on Dec. 10, 2010, and a completion date is set for November 2011. The road area includes 3.6 southbound miles from mile marker 217.6 to mile marker 214. The full project includes pavement rehabilitation, guardrail, underdrains and rumble strips. “Recycling the existing road material not only eliminates the need for numerous truck trips to haul stone and paving materials to and from the site, but also allows the causes of the deterioration to be addressed rather than just the symptoms,” a VDOT spokesperson said. “In-place pavement recycling is much more cost effective and should greatly increase the pavement service life. The process is more environmentally friendly in that fewer loads of material will be trucked to and from the site and less new material will be required thereby reducing the greenhouse gas emissions. The process has quicker completion times, which reduces the traveling public disruptions.” For the project, the following work was done. On the right lane, the top 10 in. (25 cm) were milled, hauled to an on-site recycling plant, processed (onsite) and repaved using traditional paving equipment. The next 12 in. (30 cm) were recycled in place while the milled material was being processed. This allowed for the pavement to be strengthened to a depth of approximately 22 in. (55 cm). The left lane, which had less deterioration, was recycled in-place to a depth of 5 in. (12.7 cm). The milled material from the right lane was processed using a cold central-plant recycling technique. The top 10 in. (25 cm) of existing road material was milled and transported to a mobile recycling plant where it was mixed into a foam stabilized base course. The 12-in. aggregate layer below was stabilized in place using a full-depth reclamation process that strengthened the pavement substructure by adding a stabilizing agent. This layer was then re-compacted

to support the foamed asphalt from the mobile plant, which was delivered in dump trucks and repaved using traditional paving equipment. The right lane also received 4 in. (10 cm) of intermediate hot-mix asphalt, and will receive an additional 2-in (5 cm) SMA overlay as the final riding surface. In the left lane, a cold in-place recycling method was employed. In this process a Wirtgen CR 3800 12and-a-half ft. (3.8 m) machine was used. This machine mills the pavement 5 in. deep, foam stabilizes the milled material and places it through and attached paving screed in one operation. The left lane was overlayed with a 2-in. intermediate hot-mix asphalt course and will receive an additional 2 in. SMA overlay as the final riding surface. According to Al Soltis, vice president and division manager of the roadway division of Lanford Brothers, time created a challenge with the project. “We had a five-day window in which we were allowed to close down the roadway,” he noted. “We had to always pick our days when the temperatures would allow us to work and the chance of rain was low enough for us to take a chance of doing it. If you’re opening up a section of the interstate 22-inches deep and you have a significant downpour, it would take a long time to dry out, and there were very significant penalties if we did not open on time. “We were allowed to close the road for different closure periods. We were allowed to close the road down at 9:00 Friday, and it had to be opened back up by 7 a.m. the following Thursday. Thursdays and Fridays were the heaviest traffic times in this area, so we had to always make sure that we could get our work done in time so that we could be open during those peak times.” Throughout the job, cooperation has been a key element. “I would say that one of the major reasons I would give for our success so far is that this was a partnering project where we came together as a group,” Soltis said. “Once the project was awarded, we spent time see PAVING page 63

Terex Unveils Fuel-Efficient Generation 9 Truck Range dard. This design, which also is available as an option on the Gen 9 TA250, greatly reduces operator fatigue and increases machine stability, enabling these machines to excel in rough terrain environments. Completing the Terex range of Gen 9 articulated trucks is the powerful TA400 which has a maximum payload of 40 tons (36 t) and a heaped capacity of 30.3 cu. yds. (23.3 cu m). It has a gross power of 444 hp (331 kW), and with six forward gears and one reverse in addition to a two speed drop box, the Gen 9 TA400 can travel up to 37.3 mph (60 kmh). At home on sites ranging from sand and gravel quarries to coal mines and road construction projects, the new Gen 9 Terex articulated trucks are designed to keep productivity levels high, fuel consumption low and cycle times short. For more information, visit www.terexconstruction.com. The new Generation 9 range of Terex articulated trucks are powered by Scania engines.

Engineered for the toughest applications around the world, the new Generation 9 range of Terex articulated trucks are powered by Scania engines, which are renowned for high uptime and reliability, underpinned by a worldwide service network. Back-toback testing with the new Generation 9 Tier IVi TA300 and the previous model (Tier III TA300) demonstrates that the new range is not only more productive but also more fuel efficient, according to the manufacturer. Dedicated to reducing downtime, the service points on Terex articulated trucks are designed for quick and easy access. The electronic-assisted hood raise and the fully tilting cab simplify access to major components and ground level service points, which further reduces downtime. As well as reduced downtime, lower cost of ownership is a key feature of Terex artic haulers. All models in the Generation 9 range benefit from oil-cooled multiple-disc brakes on each axle providing extended brake component life, reducing service intervals and operating costs, and improving overall braking performance compared to

traditional dry-disc brake systems that are fitted as standard on other manufacturers’ trucks. The Terex cab is developed around the operator to improve comfort, efficiency and productivity. The new ergonomic cab has reduced interior noise levels, more effective air conditioning, a high-quality sound system and even a new steering wheel and mirror arrangement. Interior aesthetics also have been updated to anthracite grey with a matte finish to reduce glare. The smallest truck in the range boasts a hauling capacity of 20.3 cu. yd. (15.5 cu m) and is powered by a 311 hp (232 kW) engine, making the Gen 9 TA250 the perfect partner for any construction project in the 25-ton (22.6 t) class market, according to the manufacturer. With a 370 hp (276 kW) engine, the Gen 9 TA300 is one of the most powerful trucks in the 30-ton (27 t) class market and this power is combined with a heaped capacity of 22.9 cu. yd. (17.5 cu m). Another feature of the updated TA300 is the fully independent front suspension, which is fitted as stan-

Navistar Donates to Assist Rebuilding Navistar continues to show its commitment to the communities it serves by donating a used step van valued at $20,000 to HERO (Hale Empowerment and Revitalization Organization Inc.) in Hale County, Ala., to assist the organization in its rebuilding efforts in the wake of the devastating tornadoes that swept through the state of Alabama, where Navistar has significant operations. Alan Stegich, national service director of Navistar’s Workhorse custom products business unit, and Andrea Clay, Workhorse legal and consumer affairs manager, recently presented the keys to HERO Executive Director Pam Dorr. “This donation is a small token of how Navistar and Workhorse are giving back to the areas where employees live and work,” said William Osborne, vice president, Custom Products, Navistar. “We are committed to ensuring the community succeeds in its rebuilding efforts.” “The tornadoes here were quite damaging for our small area,” said Dorr. “We were not sure how to

rebuild with this kind of devastation, but it is clear with this donation that we can begin getting the process moving along.” “When I shared with Pam what our intentions were, she was almost crying on the phone,” said Clay. “Pam said they have never had such a generous donation — they always just had to piece trucks together. This will make a huge difference in hauling supplies back and forth for rebuilding homes.” The donation of the vehicle is in addition to the $50,000 Navistar provided to the Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund (GERF), established by Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley to help Alabama residents with unmet recovery needs. Donations to this fund will be used to relieve suffering caused by the spring storms. The fund, which is administered by the United Ways of Alabama, will operate on an ongoing basis to help Alabama residents who have exhausted all other avenues of disaster relief, such as FEMA, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army and any other disaster relief programs.

In addition, employees at Navistar’s Melrose Park engine plant secured generators to assist employees at Navistar’s Huntsville engine plant when they were without power. “Our hearts go out to the people of Alabama whose lives have been impacted by the worst domestic disaster since Hurricane Katrina,” said Eric Tech, president, Navistar Engine Group. “We believe in being a good neighbor wherever we do business and we are proud to step up and help the community in a great time of need.” About Hale Empowerment and Revitalization Organization HERO works as a catalyst for community development in areas of the Alabama Black Belt to end rural poverty. As a non-profit housing resource center, HERO provides community resources and housing education. HERO was founded in 1994 by a group of committed citizens who wanted to create a strong community focused on family. HERO is a 501c3 non-profit organization.

Crushing, Screening & Recycling Section Rebuilt Recycling Facility Helps Lead Way to Less Waste By Peter Hildebrandt CEG CORRESPONDENT

After working on it for about a year, ReCommunity, which operates 18 recycling and recovery facilities in nine states, has achieved International Standard Organization (ISO) 14001:2004 certification for its Charlotte, N.C., facility, which was recently rebuilt to become a single stream materials recovery facility (MRF). The ISO certification focuses on criteria for environmental excellence, a method by which a company designs and operates an environmental management system. “We’re the first MRF, as far as we know, to have this registration in the U.S.,” explained Ron Cobb, manager of permits and compliance/environmental manager. Pursuing the ISO registration is one of the biggest things the company could have done environmentally, according to Cobb. “The items can be as small as what types of pesticides are used in landscaping to what storm water controls are in our parking lot,” said Cobb. “The general manufacturing operations are studied, including what hazardous materials or solvents are used by the maintenance workers.” There are 20 to 30 steps in this top-down, environmental review. The entire environmental impact of the facility is studied and various impacts are rated. The MRF in Charlotte gets its electricity from a coal-fired plant and that unfortunately does have a greenhouse gas impact. But it has put programs in place to reduce its fuel and electricity usage, such as installing high efficiency lighting. The amount of money saved from the lighting will pay for it in two years, according to Cobb. ReCommunity also installed the highest efficiency motors avail-

able. Its baler has a power-saving mode on it that shuts down after an allotted number of minutes of active use. When ready for use again, the motors turn back on. Before purchasing any new equipment, the MRF considers the fuel efficiency of the new equipment, such as a loader. They’ve installed a fuel tank with solar panels to power its pump. The system also tells automatically what the fuel inventory levels and automatically schedules refilling of the tanks. Every aspect of the MRF is studied to make sure it meets the company’s efficiency goals and that all actions are being recorded so that they’re the best in the industry. Cobb sees recycling as an overall emissions reducer for everybody. “Recycling old newspapers into new newsprint takes a paper mill a lot less energy than it takes to turn

a tree into newspaper,” he said. “The same is true with plastic, turning old plastic bottles into new ones takes les energy than assembling all the raw ingredients. “Now that recycled plastic lumber has really taken off, we also can bale and market rigid plastic. Before we were just sending plastic out to the landfill. We see our centers as becoming more and more efficient at what we do as time goes by.” Rebuilding to Single Stream ReCommunity markets in excess of one million tons per year with its 650 employees in Georgia, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Florida, Charlotte, N.C., Greensboro, N.C., Connecticut, Michigan, Wisconsin and a joint venture in Tompkins County, New York. The Metroliner Recycling Facility in Charlotte was rebuilt in

June, 2010 to handle and process single-stream recycling. The MRF now processes some 65,000 tons per year. A change from dual stream to single stream recycling involves a significant investment in plant and equipment. Machinery is required to separate the co-mingled recyclables into their constituent parts. Conversion at the Charlotte facility to single-stream was fairly typical of similar conversions that they’ve completed over the past several years at a number of their locations. “This process involves a significant capital investment,” said David Lank, ReCommunity vice president of operations, responsible for all the field operations around the United States. “Investment can range from a couple million dollars to as much as six or eight million dollars.” But several advantages can

come from converting from dual stream to single stream, he explained. The first and foremost is convenience; it’s much more convenient for the residents not to have to sort their materials into separate bins, which is a key aspect of ReCommunity’s partnership with Mecklenburg County. In the past, if one bin got full, the resident would sometimes put recyclables in the trash to avoid the hassle of waiting until the bin had room again. Raising the convenience level for residents generally translates into higher recovery rates or the ability the reclaim more recyclables out of the total waste stream. Another major advantage of single stream over dual stream is that it improves the collection efficiency, according to Lank. “The trucks that run the routes can now put their collections all in see RECYCLING page 40

one container. They don’t have to separate it at the curb, so their trucks can be simpler, and they can carry a heavier payload. In other words, you can pack it all in a packer truck as opposed to having a dual compartment specialized vehicle. This efficiency also allows for automated or semi-automated collection; instead of having the driver toting the bin into the sides of the compartment, you can use the so-called one-armed bandits to increase your collection efficiencies,” Lank explained. Machinery that Sorts a Variety of Recyclables This is among the most unique facilities in the country, according to Sean Duffy, ReCommunity president and CEO. The new system is a 35-ton-per-hour single stream with two optical sorters that have high-speed cameras and optical recognition to separate the various grades of plastic from each other. In other words, the optical sorters would be able to know the difference between a soda bottle and a milk bottle, and automatically separate them. There are various types of rotating disk screens and eddy current separators. Cross belt magnets take steel cans out of the waste stream. Multiple sorting lines lower the burden bed so it’s among the most sophisticated single stream systems in the industry, according to Duffy. Equipment for the Charlotte plant rebuild was furnished by C. P. Manufacturing. Most of the retooling at this 48,000 sq. ft. facility involved adding screens to separate the materials. Newsprint coming off the end of the line can go onto a conveyor that goes to make cellulose insulation. The newsprint goes off a waste cell, which digitally reads the weight

of the material. It then goes directly into the cellulose bagger and they make the cocoon insulation that can be purchased at a building supply store and which can be blown into an attic. It is also sold to the makers of manufactured homes. “A person can literally put their newspaper out in the morning for collection, a truck will pick it up, we can process it so it is part of one of the 30-pound bags of insulation, go on a truck and actually be shipped to a store. That same individual could purchase that bag of insultation on his way home from work,” said Duffy. “You could be picking up your own newspaper from earlier in the day or week and be blowing it into your own attic that night. The efficiency is we don’t have to bale that paper, they don’t have to de-bale it and freight does not have to be paid to take it to a processing center, as it’s all processed onsite.” Another key aspect of ReCommunity’s partnership with Mecklenburg County is an education center that provides tours and education programs at the MRF for community and school groups. Visitors are able to watch the process from start to finish as the different materials are moved around within the plant using rolling stock, pay loaders, frontend loaders, skid steers and forklifts — all John Deere machinery — and they’re able to watch all of the sorters and machinery at work. “A very important part of any successful recycling program is to offer education and awareness,” said Lank. “Our education center at the facility serves more than 10,000 visitors per year, with a full-time education director. The company also has visitor centers at Sarasota, Ann Arbor, Greensboro, Hartford and Stratford. In addition to its ongoing effort to convert their current see RECYCLING page 42

municipalities to single stream, ReCommunity also is looking at applying new technology and techniques to improve the efficiency at which it performs the separation. “There is also an opportunity to take a bigger bite out of the stuff that’s going to landfills,” Lank said. “We’re looking at finding ways, processes and systems to recover those recyclables as well as take advantage of the energy content of the material currently going to landfills. We hope to convert that material to usable types of energy.” ReCommunity was formed in March of this year through the re-branding of several other well known companies involved with recycling of plastics, aluminum and glass. Now headquartered in Charlotte, N. C., its office has about 40 professionals who handle permits, compliance, safety, accounts receivables, accounts payables, human resources and accounting functions. “The name ‘ReCommunity’ comes from reduce, reuse, recycle, recover, reinvent: all the ‘Rs.’ We’re dealing with solid waste in the community in many different ways that add value instead of being a liability,” said Duffy.

Versatile Toro Hydraulic Breaker Attachment Ideal for Multiple Jobs

The Toro hydraulic breaker attachment, for use with Dingo compact utility loaders, simplifies the tough job of breaking concrete, asphalt, rock or brick. The Toro hydraulic breaker uses 175 ft.-lbs. of force and delivers 1,200 blows per minute to break materials to a depth of 11 in. (28 cm). Ideal for breaking up footings, sidewalks, foundations and other solid structures, the breaker features a multi-position mounting head, allowing users to break materials in both horizontal and vertical positions. The hydraulic breaker utilizes Toro Dingo’s hydraulic system, which produces up to 12 gpm (45 Lpm) of flow at 3,000 psi of hydraulic power. The Dingo’s versatility allows users to switch from the hydraulic breaker attachment to a bucket attachment for cleanup in under a minute. Using the Toro Dingo quick-attach system, the hydraulic breaker quickly and easily attaches to any of the compact utility loaders by simply turning two locking pins and connecting two

hydraulic lines, according to the manufacturer. Unlike larger breakers, the Toro Dingo equipped with the hydraulic breaker can work in tight or confined spaces, eliminating time-consuming manual labor. Clear sight lines to all moving parts of the attachment allow users control and operation to complete jobs quickly and efficiently, according to the manufacturer. The hydraulic breaker is one of more than 35 attachments in the Toro Dingo system to meet the needs of any contractor or homeowner. Other attachments include an auger, trencher, vibratory plow, stump grinder, backhoe, leveler, tiller, cultivator, hydraulic blade, adjustable forks, tree forks, two-stage snowthrower, rotary broom, several sizes of buckets and more.

Edge Pallet Fork Frame With Grapple Clamps Small, Large Objects The Edge pallet fork frame with grapple from CEAttachments is an ideal attachment for clamping anything from small pipe to large culverts and also works for moving plywood and other building materials. Features include a single cylinder grapple with a unique jaw action that pulls material toward the frame as the jaw closes. The most unique feature of this Class II frame is the four optional settings where the cylinder is pinned to the grapple, which maximizes the grapple opening or closing force and ability. The positions can be changed in minutes and enable the grapple to close down below the tines or open wider than the frame, allowing the operator to clamp anything from small pipe to large culverts. Two hooked grapple arms also clamp material secure for pickup and transport of material such as plywood or other building supplies, according to the manufacturer. The Edge pallet fork frame with grapple is capable of grabbing and carrying load capacities up to 5,000 lbs. (2,268 kg) and utilizes the same Class II tines as other Edge pallet forks. Recommended for loaders with operating capacities greater than 1,500 lbs. (680 kg) and comes complete with hoses and flat-faced couplers. This attachment has an overall width of 47 in. (119 cm) and a grapple opening up to 56 in. (142 cm). For more information, visit www.ceattachments.com.

Usually, the bank would prefer to wipe the property clean for a simple future land sale,” said Ragsdale. Natural disasters, like floods and tornadoes, and structural fires have increased Southern Demolition’s business. “As money gets tight, people look for alternative ways to keep their homes and apartments warm, a lot of times in careless ways,” stated Ragsdale. “Burned structures are a direct result of low-cost but unsafe heating means in homes and apartment complexes, and the numbers of fires is increasing. Ultimately the structure ends up being a demolition contract. We’re actually booked with demolition jobs through the end of the year. “As a Georgia licensed asbestos abatement contractor, we’re able to perform survey, removal and abatement work for asbestos products. When all is cleared, we can proceed with the demolition. We’re basically a ‘turn-key’ demolition contractor that can deal with the environmental aspects of testing, abatement if necessary, perform the entire demolition and finish the job with soil stabilization.

“Over the years I have met a lot of really great old time contractors. A handshake with them was a deal. It is not that way with a lot of the people that are out there anymore. Now you have to cross your ‘T’ and dot your ‘I’ to make sure everything is covered the way it should be covered. The handshake deals I miss.”

“It has been a good ride and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the selling.” Harold Howell Harold Howell Construction Equipment

Howell is known for his cowboy boots, which he has been wearing since 1962. “When I came into a territory I had a contractor who wore cowboy boots and he was kind of my cowboy hero so I went down to the farmers market and bought my first pair

of cowboy boots and I’ve been wearing them ever since. Over the years I have been called ‘cowboy’ by many of my customers and friends.” Not Ready to Call It Quits “It has been a good ride and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the selling,” Howell concluded. “I’m 77 years old and I’m in good health. I have enough money to retire if I want to, but I still enjoy selling, the people in the business and I love construction equipment. As long as there are good people out there and I can find good machines to sell I am going to keep on trucking.” Howell is the past director of Florida East Coast chapter of AGC, past director of Better Business Bureau of Palm Beach County and is currently on the advisory board of the Marlins Community Foundation.

Liebherr’s 6th Generation R 916 Offers ‘Positive Control’ Hydraulic System Liebherr’s R 916 advanced litronic has a four-cylinder diesel engine with an output of 157 hp (115 kW). This construction-machinery engine complies with the Stage IIIA/Tier III exhaust emission regulations. By avoiding unnecessary engine speed changes, the CAN bus integrated engine management system optimizes fuel consumption and makes better use of the available power, according to the manufacturer. New “Positive Control” Hydraulic System In view of the large number of hydraulic consumers that often have to actuate three or more overlapping or synchronized functions, modern hydraulic excavators need advanced, technically mature systems. All Liebherr 6th-generation crawler excavators are therefore equipped with the “positive control” hydraulic system and the corresponding control logic. By supplying an ample flow volume available quickly and making full use of the available energy, the two independent hydraulic circuits energize the hydraulic circuits in the most efficient way, especially when overlapping movements are performed. Maximum speeds are obtained for individual movements by combining the outputs from the pump circuits. With its “positive control advanced” hydraulic system, the R 916 advanced litronic has performance advantages when superimposed movements are performed, for instance when grading surfaces or when travelling in a straight line or following a curved path, according to the manufacturer. The higher operating pressure also boosts tractive, tearout and breakout forces. As well as Liebherr master and input/output modules, the new Liebherr excavator system technology includes integrated engine and power management and a man-machine interface. Sensors located at strategic points on the excavator form a basis for this intelligent system, for faster, smoother working movements. A typical benefit of Liebherr excavator system technology is easy operation of hydraulic attachments. The working pressure and the necessary volume of oil can be input quickly and accu-rately with the tool management. This system technology also incorporates basic equipment for the LiDat on-board diagnostic system, which is the key to even greater economy in modern machine fleet management according to modern business management principles. Advanced Cab With Unique Convenience Standards The large advanced cab gives the operator a feeling of space. The windscreen, roof and right-hand cab windows are of splinterproof two-layer safety glass and the windscreen can be fully retracted. For even greater safety, the cab com-

plies with ROPS requirements, and the hydraulic hoses between the control valves and the base of the boom have been re-routed to give the operator a larger field of view. The large, high-resolution 7-in. color display can be operated as a touch screen or as a turn-and-push knob. It has Liebherr’s R 916 advanced litronic has a four-cylinder diesel engine with an output of 157 hp (115 kW).

video-compatible resolution and incorporates a wide variety of adjustment, checking and monitoring facilities. The display screen is glare-proof and has automatic brightness and contrast control. Xenon lights are available as an optional extra for the best possible work-area visibility. Proportional control is another optional extra: it improves precision and sensitivity even further when working with hydraulic add-on equipment such as a trench clearing bucket, according to the manufacturer. Optimized Structural Steelwork, Improved Drive Trains The 6th-generation crawler excavator’s undercarriage has been designed for increased performance and longer troublefree operation. The center-section connections are extended as far as the ends of the side members in an X-pattern layout that distributes forces more effectively and prolongs undercarriage life. The new slewing platform structure acts as the basis for the ROPS-specification cab. The large-diameter slewing ring distributes the forces that occur here more effectively, so that operating life is again increased. Weight- and function-optimized structural steelwork is a new development in the equipment area. Increased box section dimensions enhance the excavator’s ability to withstand severe loads. The R 916 Advanced achieves breakout forces of up to 179 kN and tearout forces as high as 139 kN. For more information, call 757/928-8746 or visit www.Liebherr.com.

Co. President Reticent on Leica Geosystems Releases Some Aspects of Tragic Job NextGen SP Technology GRIFFIN from page 24

attachments because the steel girding was too large for shearing and had to be torched apart. No special machinery was required and, he added, nothing that has come on the market since 2001 would have been used instead. The project was, he suggested, just another demolition job but on a horrifically large scale. “It was,” Griffin observed, “the super bowl of the demolition industry.” Griffin also came away with renewed confidence about running projects and crews. “I learned some new management skills,” he said, “what with being involved with 28 different agencies and all the maneuvering and figuring out how to work though the different agencies. There were so many moving parts and you had to tiptoe around to get what we wanted. Now when I’m working with only three agencies, it feels like a cakewalk.” He said he learned some more things about how to work with people. “There was so much emotion, so I learned some new negotiating skills.” His straight-forward approach to demolition problems, which landed him the management position, continued to operate for the duration of the project. “We would make a plan and we would move forward,” he recalled of the work days. “I’d say, ‘You can’t talk it down. You can only study something so long. You ain’t going to talk it down.’ So we would make a plan and implement it and go.” Griffin said that “a lot of things we learned in New York, we use now on other sites.” There are many opportunities to do so: The D.H. Griffin Companies network has 1,000 employees and a 600-piece equipment fleet. The company annually produces more than $400 million in project revenue. Just One Regret Griffin cradles in his memory some scenes and memories that he doesn’t talk about, the demolition site also being the death site of nearly 3,000 people. The debris consisted of more than fractured bricks and mangled steel. Yet as a management exercise and project, cleaning up the acres and acres of fallen buildings, crushed cars and destroyed infrastructure was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Satisfyingly, he could chalk it up as a professional success. As a token of the clean-up, Griffin carried back to Greensboro on a flatbed truck a piece of one of the core beams of a fallen tower.

Leica Geosystems released the next generation of its Leica SP technology. SP Technology now also supports machine control with total stations, providing high precision and increased grading speed in environments where GPS is not useable. This additional functionality allows users to choose the positioning sensor for their machine control system and to achieve enhanced results in any environment. Using an inertial system SP technology enhances grading performance, resulting in higher productivity even on challenging job sites, according to the manufacturer.

David H. Griffin Jr. played a large role in the cleanup after the collapse of the World Trade Center towers.

His only regret, Griffin said, is that he didn’t salvage a few more pieces of the iconic buildings. “I wish I had saved more steel,” he said. “Through the years, I have had a lot of requests from fire departments for steel to be used in memorials. At the 10th anniversary, we gave away about 50 pieces.” He spent the 10th anniversary in Greensboro, incidentally, participating in a couple of 9/11 events in the community, far away from the ceremonies in New York City. In fact, he has been back to NYC just 10 times during the decade since he worked there, and not at all in the last four or five years. To be in the proximity of the disaster site, now a commemorative site, evidently is not something he needs in order to be reminded of the tragic event itself and of his involvement in the desperate scramble to clean it up. “Remembering the event just makes me appreciate what I have,” he said, cutting short the interview to return to work. “Every one of the people who died that day was just doing his job. That’s all. No different from me and you.” (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.) CEG

Achieving Faster Results SP technology provides improved hydraulic control that allows faster grading with increased smoothness and precision at high speeds, increasing machine utilization and productivity. Bulldozers can now take on even more fine grading jobs, completing work with less heavy equipment on site and helping contractors to finish their projects ahead of schedule and under budget. By using inertial guidance with highly responsive hydraulic control, grading performance is enhanced. Leica SP technology compensates for various weaknesses that GPS and total stations have in normal machine control applications. Thus operators can achieve consistent and precise results even under the most difficult conditions. Machines equipped with SP technology reduce the need for rework and increase machine uptime during poor satellite (GPS/GLONASS) coverage, temporary loss of correction signals, or interrupted prism tracking when working with a total station, according to the manufacturer. Total Precision in Any Environment The next generation Leica SP Technology adds flexibility to speed and precision. Working with GPS or total station SP technology allows fast and precise grading even on challenging job sites. If GPS is not usable, e.g. when working in urban canyons, deep

Leica SP Technology works with GPS and total station based machine control systems. The SP 14 uses modern inertial technology for responsive hydraulic control to enhance grading performance.

cuts, forested or mountainous areas, or in tunnels, the operator can swap the GPS sensors with a total station and can keep working with its 3D machine control system enjoying the same SP performance and speeds as with GPS. Increased Value of Existing Hardware SP Technology is an available upgrade or option to the Leica PowerGrade platform. Along with the PowerSnap concept, which allows easy and quick exchange of machine control panels, customers have flexibility and speed. All dozers equipped with a Leica PowerGrade 3D system controlled by GPS or total station can be easily updated to get the full benefit of the SP Technology. A simple sensor swap, upgrade of software and recalibration of the machine is all that is required. For more information, visit http://www.leica-geosystems.com/sp.

Partnering Project Proves Successful EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY PAVING from page 28

identifying what all the problems were. It helped for the highway department and all of us in the contracting group to understand the interactions between the different types of equipment that we had and what kind of space requirements would be needed. We just had a very, very good understanding of who was going to do what, and we stayed out of each other’s way to do it. When each team member came on the job, they had the opportunity to do their job to the best of their ability, and we knew how we could help one another to succeed. I give a large degree of credit to the partnering process. We had a good group, and the good Lord has shined very well on us so far.” Soltis noted that three values were set for the project: safety, quality and value. In the right lane, 10 in. (24 cm) of existing pavement was milled 14 ft. (4.2 m) wide to the required cross slope. Lanford Brothers Co. utilized two milling machines, a Wirtgen W210 and a Wirtgen W2100, both utilizing slope control. For the 12-in. stabilization after milling, Slurry Pavers utilized a WR2400 recycler, two cement trucks, a water truck, a 15-ton (13.6-t) pad foot roller, and a Cat grader with GPS controls. The 6-in. (15 cm) recycled foamed asphalt base was mixed by Lanford Brothers utilizing a Wirtgen KMA 220 mobile recycling plant. It was placed by B & S Contracting utilizing standard paving equipment. The 4 in. intermediate asphalt mix was placed in two lifts, produced and placed by B &S Contracting Inc. Staunton, Va., utilizing standard paving equipment.

Paving screed attached to the rear of the 3800 recycler.

In the left lane, 2 in. of milling of existing pavement was done 12 ft., 6 in. wide by Lanford Brothers. The cold in place recycling at a 5-in. depth was done by Reclamation Inc. utilizing a Wirtgen CR 3800 recycling, two Hamm HD 120 rollers, and one Hamm GRW 280 rubber tire roller, a cement truck, and two asphalt tankers. A 2-in. intermediate asphalt mix was produced and placed by B&S Contracting. Miscellaneous work included under drains by Curtis Contracting, line stripping and traffic control devices by Sandra’s Marking Company, and guard rail by Landford Brothers Co.

Jody Wall (L), Ritchie Bros.; and Steve Headden, Terex Genie division, discuss a few details about the machines. Bradley Duncan, Bryant’s Land & Development, Burnsville, N.C., was in the market for a 50-ton trailer for use on a special project the company just landed.

(L-R): John Hood and Jose Acosta, both of Carolina CAT, Charlotte, N.C.; and Doc and Jordan McGee, McGee Brothers, Monroe, N.C. Doc makes it to most of the Ritchie Sales in Statesville and usually finds a good deal.

Benny Gray (L), Benny Gray Concrete, Knoxville, Tenn., was in the market for a smaller rubber track excavator and looked over this Komatsu PC50MR machine and asked John Noble, Brandeis Machinery, a few questions about it.

Rick Byrd (L), Byrd Construction, Hudson, N.C.; and Budd Faw, Buddy Faw Grading, Lenoir, N.C.; came to see what the machines were selling for, so they would both know what their own machines were worth.

job is to do the best we can to earn your trust, earn your business day in and day out. The number one test is always to have the person that’s loyal John Deere feel like we’re still trying to earn your business every day and not take it for granted. I hope you both find that today and I know you’ll find that even more so in the future with the combination of John Deere and Beard Equipment.” Melissa Beard stated that the company made a substantial investment in upgrading the Jacksonville facility for the Deere executive visit and first customer event at the branch. “Upgrades that were originally planned for an 18- month span of time were fast tracked and completed in two months. We had the opportunity and good fortune of having the Deere executive team request to visit Jacksonville. In planning our first customer event with the executives at this branch facility, it was important to us that the planned facility upgrades be made quickly for an impact on both our valued customers and Deere representatives. We wanted everything to look perfect.” Upgrades to the exterior of the facility included the placement of new aluminum

decorative fencing, additional concrete in the equipment yard at the rear of the shop, Beard signage put in place and having parking areas milled and repaved. For the Jacksonville branch’s interior, the upgrades included having the “sit down” parts counter completely upgraded to a “stand up” counter. Melissa Beard explained that, “this was done to provide a more professional, workfriendly parts environment, where parts representatives are standing ready to greet our customers for their parts needs. This approach is our theory on the most productive and pleasing way to serve our customer’s parts needs.” Because the structure is more than 30 years old, Beard ownership did extensive repainting and everything but the shop area was either re-tiled or re-carpeted. New upgraded computer systems, computers, printers and phone systems also were included in the upgrades. And an adjacent office and warehouse building on the property that had been virtually unused was also renovated. (This story also can be found on Beard Equipment Company family ownership and Deere and Company top brass who assembled at the event included (L-R) Kristen and Drew DeLaney, Beard Equipment; Construction Equipment Guide’s Web Sam Allen, Deere; Melissa and Brad Beard; Mike Mack and Domenic Ruccolo, Deere; site at www.constructionequipmentand John Dodson, Beard Equipment. guide.com.)
