ARTBA Unveils Funding Forecast for 2013 By Pete Sigmund CEG EDITORIAL CONSULTANT

Warrior Tractor Holds Christmas Luncheon…8

(A growing, vibrant highway and bridge program is one of the keys to economic recovery. The American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) addressed important topics and questions pertaining to the infra-

structure construction market in a recent “Webinar” forecast for Wall Street analysts and construction industry executives. Following are highlights of this presentation by David Bauer, ARTBA’s senior vice president, government affairs, and Dr. Alison Premo Black, ARTBA’s chief economist.) A recent “Webinar” by the

American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) in Washington, D.C., addressed a “status quo” stalemate in highway and bridge funding and highlighted the urgent need for shoring up Highway Trust Fund (HTF) revenues to stimulate activity, and spotlighted a broad range of infrastructure activity and needs.

The ARTBA officials pointed out that MAP-21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century), the 27-month, $101.3-billion transportation bill that President Obama signed into law on July 6, 2012, is a two-year reauthorization of federal surface transportation programs. In this environment, they predicted see FUNDING page 24

Natchitoches, La., the oldest settlement from the Louisiana Purchase, will soon celebrate divergent aspects of its history when the Louisiana State Museum and Sports Hall of Fame opens next year. The $12.6 million facility under construction on Front Street in the Historic District will showcase two seemingly disconnected subjects within one contempo-

rary venue: sports and history. “The project brings two programs formerly housed separately into a common venue tailored to exhibits and filled with state-of-the-art displays,” said John Davis, director of the state’s Office of Facility Planning and Control. The Sports Hall of Fame will occupy the first floor of the 28,000-sq.-ft. museum building. The second floor will showcase sports memorabilia and house the Northwest see MUSEUM page 28

WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama faces mounting pressure as he embarks on a second term over a decision he had put off during his re-election campaign: whether to approve the $7 billion proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline between the United States and Canada. On its surface, it’s a choice between the promise of jobs and economic growth and environmental concerns. But it’s also become a proxy for a much broader fight over American energy consumption and climate change, amplified by Superstorm Sandy and the conclusion of an election that was all about the economy. Environmental activists and oil producers alike are looking to Obama’s decision as a harbinger of what he’ll do on climate and energy in the next four years. Both sides are holding out hope that, freed from the political constraints of re-election, the president will side with them on this and countless related issues down the road. “The broader climate movement is absolutely looking at this administration’s see PIPELINE page 80

Bo Lowe Retires From Reynolds-Warren Equipment Co. After 45 years in the equipment business, Bo Lowe, sales coordinator of Reynolds-Warren Equipment Company Inc. in Lake City, Ga., has set his retirement date for Jan. 7, 2013. Lowe essentially grew up in the equipment business as his father Tom Lowe partnered with Bill Burch who had started a company called Contractors Equipment Company in 1952. After some changes and acquisitions, the company was later renamed BurchLowe, a large Atlanta-based heavy equipment distributor with branches throughout the state and a quality lineup of machine offerings. Bo started working for the company off and on in the 1960s as a teenager doing whatever was needed, including steam cleaning Etnyre distributors on the steam clean rack during the summer. After high school Lowe continued with the company and worked briefly in the service department and then in the parts department for five years while going to college. After Lowe committed to full

time employment with the company, he eventually went into sales and became the company’s sales coordinator in 1973, a position he held until 1991. In 1991, Lowe left the company to go to work with a close friend who needed someone to help increase sales for a hardware company that dealt in outdoor power equipment sales and repair and was in the feed and seed business. Soon Lowe’s former coworkers Joe Reynolds, whose previous employment included being a salesman of Burch Lowe, and Clifford Warren, who was once the Burch Lowe service manager, began to work on recruiting him to go to work with them at their company, Reynolds-Warren Equipment. Lowe saidthat for years, “Joe kept calling and calling and asking me to come in and give Clifford some help on inside sales and I finally said ‘yes.’” Lowe joined Reynolds-Warren in 1994. Once again, in the position of sales coordinator, the same

Bo Lowe plans to retire in early January, after 45 years in the industry.

title he held at Burch-Lowe and the same title he holds at retirement. In addition to being sales coordinator and handling equipment invoicing, inside sales, equipment bids, etc., Lowe stated that he worked in the parts department if

needed and pretty much worked in whatever capacity needed for the benefit of the customer. When asked about what he would miss in his retirement, Lowe replied, “All the good people I work with, the great products and

manufacturers we work with and their representatives, but most importantly the customers. Most of our customers have become my friends. I’m going to miss all the people in this industry.” Lowe’s retirement plan includes moving out of the metro Atlanta area to a more rural setting in the Danielsville, Ga., area. The position Lowe is retiring from will be placed in the capable hands of Brian Meissen. Lowe stated that of all the Burch’s and all the Lowe’s in the Atlanta area that founded and worked for the Burch-Lowe business, he is the last of the family members to step away from the industry. Reynolds-Warren is a full service dealer for lines such as LeeBoy, Rosco, Midland, Sakai-asphalt rollers, Crafco and Alamo.

Cat Auction Services Expands Ownership Structure to Include Caterpillar Inc. Cat Auction Services (CAS) recently announced that it has expanded its ownership structure to include Caterpillar Inc., as an investor in the company. Caterpillar will join 25 other Cat dealer partners to share ownership of Cat Auction Services. Cat Auction Services was created in 2008 through a unique partnership of five Cat dealers with the objective of developing an auction channel that can work with the Caterpillar distribution network. By leveraging customer relationships built by dealers and Caterpillar, CAS is able to provide a unique auction experience that offers Cat dealers and customers a broad range of services, superior equipment expertise and a level of transparency unmatched by any other auction company. “Caterpillar is looking forward to being a part of Cat Auction Services because it gives our North American customers another reliable, trusted choice when it comes to meeting their equipment disposal and acquisition needs. This will be a great supplement to our current dealer offerings,” said Jim W. Johnson, president of Caterpillar Used Equipment Services, Inc. “We feel that Cat Auction Services is uniquely positioned in the auction business by offering innovative live and online auctions backed by a full range of support services provided by the best dealer network in the world. I think that once people try CAS they will have a new favorite auction company,” Johnson added.

Cat Auction Services facilitates auctions through live events, online bidding, and its own monthly, timed-out, online platform called eQuipment Yard. CAS has enhanced heavy equipment auctions by giving customers a better experience through the innovative LEADERBOARD, professional staff, TA-1 inspection reports, comprehensive photos and videos, equipment protection plans and equipment financing. In less than four years, CAS has grown to include 25 dealer partners holding auctions that draw customers from 49 U.S. states and 60 countries. “We are thrilled to be a part of the extended Caterpillar network,” said Rick Albin, president of Cat Auction Services. “Their expertise, along with our many dealer partners, will position us to become a strong worldwide presence within a couple of years and will provide the best customer value in the auction industry.” “Throughout the entire process of closing this transaction, the business strategy and expectations of Caterpillar Inc. and independent Cat dealers have been in direct alliance with each other,” said Gary Trettel, CFO/general manager of Cat Auction Services. “This shows their commitment to this business and the belief that we have an opportunity to serve our customers better by working together.” For more information, visit www.catauctions.com.

A Christmas Miracle At a time when many people are having difficulty dealing with the recent tragedy in Connecticut, a Construction Equipment Guide reader, Genia Roof, the wife of Guy Roof, president, ConEquip of the Carolinas Inc., Greensboro, N.C., chose to share this story of hope. Ever since I was a young girl, I knew I would have children and, I’d hoped, lots of them. I dreamed of making their Christmases as wonderful as my parents had always made Christmas for me. I gave birth to our first child in 2002. He died when he was four days old. My life was shattered. Every dream I’d had for him was over. I lived with a broken heart for what seemed to be forever. Then, seven years into my heartache, with my faith being truly tested to the limit, I decided to let go of all my pain. What kind of a life am I living, I wondered. I knew I had to accept living without children. At 11:39 on Christmas morning 2009, the phone rang. My husband Guy and I had already exchanged our

gifts and I was in the kitchen fixing the sweet potatoes I was taking to my parents’ house for dinner. On the line was a man’s voice calling from an area code we didn’t recognize. He said, “My girlfriend and I wanted to know if you want to adopt our baby, a boy due in March.” My first thought was, “this has to be a joke.” Because as he spoke, I recognized his voice. He and his (same) girlfriend had called us three years previously, wanting us to adopt their sixmonth-old baby girl, Faith. She was their ninth child. Faith’s mother cried on the phone and begged me to come and get the baby that very same day. By law, of course, I couldn’t do that, but I frantically started the detailed and arduous process of an out-of-state adoption. Two weeks later, the mother called back and said she had changed her mind because Faith’s father had said he would stay with her if she kept the baby. Sadly, Faith eventually became a ward of the state. Faith’s birth parents had both come from broken homes and had been in

and out of foster care themselves. This yet-to-be-born baby would be the 10th child between them and Social Services had stepped in and informed them that he would be immediately placed in foster care if they did not have an adop-

tive family in place at his birth. The birth parents had lost my information. But through some divine reason, the birth grandmother had kept my information in her phone book. When they had first contacted me three years earlier, she had felt it was very important to keep my number but had been reluctant to give it to them because of what had happened at that time. But she couldn’t bear the thought of the new baby being taken by the state as his sister had been when she knew Guy and I were out there ready to give him a loving home. Her decision gave that family peace and my heart joy. Huey Roof was born March 7, 2010, at 8:23 p.m. in a small town close to Green Bay, Wis. I was there to cut the cord and my little boy and I have been inseparable ever since. My heart has never been happier. My son Charlie is tucked away in a special place in my heart that is only his. He would want me to be happy. So, as for doubting Christmas miracles, they really do happen. Huey and I believe.

May Heavy-Equip Now Marketing Kawasaki Loaders By Eric Olson CEG CORRESPONDENT

May Heavy-Equip Rental & Sales Inc., based in Lexington, N.C., began marketing Kawasaki’s wheel loaders in November.

One of the South’s top equipment dealers recently reached an agreement to begin selling, renting and servicing Kawasaki’s line of articulated wheel loaders, including its Z7 line of machines. May Heavy-Equip Rental & Sales Inc., based in Lexington, N.C., began marketing Kawasaki’s wheel loaders in November and now boasts several of the new Z7 wheel loaders in its yard. The deal culminates a year of work between May and Kawasaki in order to shift the dealer agreement from another North Carolina outfit, according to Jim Bingham, May’s CEO. May has already accepted orders for the new Z7 model from customers in its market area. The company’s sales and service territory encompasses western North Carolina (as far east as Burlington), the entire state of South Carolina and parts of Virginia. According to Jacob May, president of the dealership, Kawasaki’s “impeccable reputation” has led many of his customers to request that they carry the wheel loader, which is available in many different sizes. He added that companies in his market recognize that Kawasaki makes “top-of- the-line machines that are a cut above the competition.” In fact, quarry and mining operations, he said, really like the Kawasaki machines and that has allowed his company to market and sell to more quarry companies, as well as asphalt firms. “Kawasaki is kind of banking on us, being a rental company also, to get their wheel loaders more into the hands of more of our construction customers,” he added. “We are going to push that really hard, I assure you. Kawasaki offers a very, very well thought of product.” Attractive, Functional Kawasaki considers the new Z7 wheel loader to be a machine that has been “totally redesigned” to

distinguish it from its previous wheel loaders. Besides building them to meet new emissions standards, Kawasaki also has equipped the Z7 with new powertrain components, hydraulic and electrical systems and structures developed to improve efficiency, productivity and comfort. In addition, engineers are counting on sophisticated controls and logic to provide the machine’s “intelligent” systems to be able to adjust to the working conditions of the loader to improve efficiency. But perhaps the most apparent change in the Kawasaki Z7 wheel loaders is their appearance. New styling sets that are both attractive and functional were designed within the machines to improve visibility and serviceability.

Manufactured in America Bingham actually considers the Japanese-owned Kawasaki manufacturing plant to be “local” due to its location in Newnan, Ga., just outside Atlanta. Also nearby, in Kennesaw, is the headquarters for KCMA Corp., the company that owns and manufactures Kawasaki equipment in North and South America, along with its parts warehouses and a rebuild center. “Our intention is to get the product into the hands of our rental customers so that they can see and demo them,” Bingham explained. “We may sell many of these wheel loaders just off the lot, but I think a lot of our sales will come from having people experience these machines and appreciate their quality. They have such a good

reputation and the new design is really operator friendly and it has such a great sense of style about it. Plus, it is a powerful machine.” Bingham added that May is utilizing its rental business to its advantage to help them sell Kawasaki machines. “Because there is a significant Kawasaki following in the Carolinas already, a big part of what we are doing right now is educating customers about the new relationship between May and Kawasaki, as well as letting them know that we are here to meet their needs, whether it is buying a new machine or just getting parts,” he said. “We have talked to customers who have had these machines for a long time and want to stay with

Kawasaki because they work so well. We think, too, that some of these folks will probably look to refresh their inventory in the next few years and we want them to know that we are here for them.” Bingham also said that Kawasaki has “very aggressive” leasing programs which he feels will help his customers get into newer machines quicker. At the present, May’s employees, from the sales and management side to the mechanics in both its Lexington headquarters and its Columbia, S.C. shop, are all training and learning about the Kawasaki line and how to service them. The deal with Kawasaki was made much smoother, Bingham said, because of the support of GE Capital. “They have been a great financing partner to us and we really appreciate their doing what they could to support us in the relationship with Kawasaki,” he explained. “Additional support was provided by Richie Ambrose, the general manager of the Columbia office of May Heavy-Equip Rental & Sales Inc.,” Bingham said. A Young, Dynamic Company Founded in 1997, May has grown to be one of the Southeast’s most reliable sources for heavy equipment rentals, sales and service. With almost 300 pieces of earthmoving equipment available on its lots, the company is geared to providing customers with a versatile line of machinery. About 40 percent of its 30 employees are trained as mechanics and repair specialists. “The ability to service and repair anything in the field is key to a company such as ours and, therefore, our technicians can work on virtually any brand,” said Jacob May. “Our repair trucks stay busy and are always on call.” (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.)

Officials Call MAP-21 ‘Status Quo Investment Measure’ FUNDING from page 1

only a modest three percent growth in the U.S. transportation construction infrastructure market in 2013. “MAP-21 is basically a status quo investment measure, which maintains federal highway investment at about $40 billion a year in 2014 and 2015, and transit programs at $10.6 billion in 2014 and $10.7 billion in 2015,” Bauer said. “There’s no major increase in investment in either program, but also not a significant drop off. “MAP-21 took three years, and 10 temporary extensions, to pass. The main reason for the delay was the fiscal cliff facing the Highway Trust Fund, which urgently needs new revenue to replace that which has expired. MAP-21 preserved previous levels of HTF investment through temporary extensions and an infusion of $21-billion from other sources in the general fund. The situation is somewhat stabilized but will be back into the same dynamic of multiple extensions when MAP-21 expires in two years. MAP-21 also cut federal highway investment from $41.1 billion in 2011 to $39.1 billion in 2012.” Highway Trust Fund at Critical Stage The report noted a general downward trend in federal highway and bridge contracts since the 2009 American Recovery Act (ARA) stimulus. Bauer declared that Congress and the President must bolster HTF investment as soon as possible. “The Highway Trust Fund has a short-term life in preserving MAP21 levels of investment,” he said. “Congress will again be in a very difficult position in terms of increasing revenues or cutting deficits. If nothing is done to increase HTF revenue, highway investment will drop 57 percent — from $40.4 billion in 2014 to $17.3 billion in 2015. The insolvency crisis looming in 2014 and 2015 threatens thousands of jobs in the construction industry. “Most of the same people will control the House and Senate in 2014, when we could be facing the same short-term solutions as in 2009. A wholesale rewrite of MAP-21 is pretty unlikely. Some

things in MAP-21 will take four to six years to accomplish. Past guarantees of investment levels have been stripped away, so there will be annual discussions on whether to adhere to levels agreed upon.” Bauer pointed out that in the past 30 years, all HTF enhancements have been part of a broad tax/budget legislation deal, rather than coming from a transportation bill, and that solutions that alleviate or eliminate the HTF burden on the general fund will contribute to deficit reduction. Majorities in Congress Support Funding Bauer said MAP-21 made a number of policy reforms that Congress has sought for at least 10 years, including streamlining the environmental review process, eliminating earmarks, and providing greater accountability and transparency. “Cleaning up such concerns may make it easier to generate future revenues for more growth,” he added. “Despite the incredibly hostile political environment in the 2012 election year, MAP-21 received unparalleled levels of bipartisan support compared to other legislation, reinforcing transportation investment. It passed the House with 373 votes, almost half from Republicans. Almost half the Republicans and all the Democrats in the Senate voted for it. This showed that some of the people who wanted to highjack the process through massive investment cuts couldn’t do it.” Fiscal Cliff Bauer said the “fiscal cliff,” the prospect of automatic spending cuts and tax increases if the deficit was not reduced, “has provided the opportunity to discuss HTF expansions, and try to do something proactive in this area.” He said that “there will probably be no answer [to the HTF crisis] by the end of 2012” adding: “HTF advances on the fiscal cliff will take until 2013 if not beyond. Most surface transportation programs would be exempt from the forced cuts under the sequestration program, which was to begin in January 2013. The eight percent fee on other programs would not apply to core highway

programs, which are Trust Fundsupported.” Dr. Black, ARTBA’s chief economist, commented as follows on the “cliff,” which she said had been “a major wild card in the forecast:” “Although the fiscal cliff would

bridge and pavement work. Two, MAP-21’s expanded federal Transportation Infrastructure Finance & Innovation Act (TIFIA) loan program should also increase construction activity in some states.

“The Highway Trust Fund has a short-term life in preserving MAP-21 levels of investment. Congress will again be in a very difficult position in terms of increasing revenues or cutting deficits. If nothing is done to increase HTF revenue, highway investment will drop 57 percent — from $40.4 billion in 2014 to $17.3 billion in 2015.” David Bauer ARTBA

not directly impact federal highway investment to the states, it could affect state and local finances, and thereby cause governments to pull back or delay projects. Such action in turn would have negative consequences on the highway construction market.” She said individual businesses also could delay capital and hiring decisions amid the uncertainty. Modest Growth in Infrastructure Work Black said the U.S. transportation construction infrastructure market is expected to show “modest growth” in 2013, increasing three percent from $126.5 billion to $130.3 billion. This growth would be in highway and bridge pavement, airport and terminal runways, railroads, and ports and waterways. She predicted that the bridge market, which has shown substantial growth over the past 10 years, will remain flat in 2013. Bridge and tunnel construction reached a record $28.5 billion in 2012 but will cool off in 2013, likely remaining flat at about $28.2 billion, she said, but rebounding smartly in 2014. The ARTBA forecast shows projects in eight states continuing to account for about half of U.S. market activity in this

remain healthy, with continued growth, over the next five years. Major projects include work on the Tappan Zee Bridge in New York, the Ohio River Bridge, the “floating SR29 bridge” in Washington State, the Detroit River Bridge, three major projects on the George Washington Bridge, and $500 million in Brooklyn Bridge projects. Black said about 60 percent of federal obligations goes toward bridge work. Black added that the pavements market will be sluggish in 2013, growing 2.8 percent to $58.4 billion. This includes $47.7 billion in public and private investment in highways, roads and streets and $10.7 billion in largely private investments in parking lots, driveways and related structures. Pavement work is predicted to be down in 25 states and to grow above five percent in 19 states. Two developments relating to MAP-21 could lead to additional market activity in the short term and strengthen the market in 2013 and 2014, Black said. One, the law’s restructuring of the federal highway program offers state transportation departments more flexibility in their use of federal funds, which could lead to slightly increased investment in highway,

She also noted the boost from major reconstruction work along the East Coast in states hit by Hurricane Sandy. Driving the Market Black pointed out that the major drivers of the transportation construction market are the federal aid program and state and local financing. “Looking at capital outlays, reimbursements to state governments drive about 44 percent of the market,” she said, adding: “When you consider that part of that money goes to match the federal program, federal investment accounts for about half of the transportation construction market. State and local revenues are largely driven by their own motor fuel and general revenues. The more revenues are coming in, the more they can put into transportation construction. “Federal obligation levels for specific projects show what they can pass on to state and local projects. MAP-21 didn’t provide new money. Project costs are designed to be in line with inflation, but often remain above it, so in essence we’re looking at a status quo federsee FUNDING page 26

big $3.2 billion uptick occurred in state and local bond issues in September 2012, but this is nowhere near the level of bond issues several years ago. Though state and local spending is starting to improve, ARTBA does not expect significant investment, which would really drive overall growth in highway and

was not subject to annual obligation limits, and so some states carried over unobligated balances. Now the money has to be obligated in the federal fiscal year so that money can get into the funding stream sooner.” State, Local Projects Black said some recovery of lost revenues is taking place on the state and local level. She said this is a positive sign for construction. “A quarter of those revenues come from the federal aid program and this funding must go to capital expenditures like highway construction, rather than for operations or administrative costs,” she added. “User fees account for about 41 percent of revenues, but these are impacted by the overall economy, including whether less people are driving. Some states also have other fees. Bonds account for about 14 percent of revenues. “Over the long run, overall tax revenues are one of the best indicators of what will be spent on highways and bridges. We expect these revenues to be back where they were in 2008, which is very positive. However, there is usually a lag between when these funds come in and when additional capital expenditures take place in transportation. States still have to spend more in other areas, including 2.5 million more students in public colleges and universities and 4.8 million more people eligible for health insurance coverage. There’s still a $55-billion gap between this revenue and expenditures.” The outlook for public/private partnerships, meanwhile, has been improving, Black said, “and they are a very important market tool for many states.” Other Forecast Areas Bond issues from state and local governments have been a significant investment.

bridge construction, or any large jump in spending in 2013. Material prices aren’t expected to be a big issue in 2013 and 2014, but will be an issue in the longer run, with an uptick expected as demand increases in general construction. The world economy also is a factor in making supply more difficult in a few years. The materials market is pretty much back where it was before the market crashed in 2008. Inflation is expected to remain in the two percent to three percent range, with prices for highway and bridge materials increasing about three percent. U.S. ports and waterway construction are expected to skyrocket nearly 25 percent, to $2.65 billion in 2013. This growth will be driven by expanded sea trade expected with completion of the Panama Canal expansion in 2015. Construction of airport runways and ter-

minals is expected to grow in 28 states, with overall growth of 4.5 percent, to $12.5 billion in 2013. Funding is expected to increase over the next five years as passengers increase, larger aircraft arrive, and privatization proceeds. Fourteen airports in eight metropolitan areas need upgrading. Five airports now accommodate the larger aircraft now arriving on the scene, and 12 more airports are expected to handle them in 2013 after upgrade construction. Construction of light rail and subways is expected to decrease eight percent largely due to the 33-month delay in passing MAP21. In surveys, 57 percent of contractors expect sluggish growth. ARTBA said that, because contractors are working below capacity level, they have the ability to handle new projects in an expanded public works program vitally boosting the economy.”

State of the Nation’s Highway Funding (In the following interview, Beth McGinn, director of public affairs of the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA), answers questions about the status of the nation’s highway and bridge construction program.) CEG: Highway and bridge construction is one of the keys to sustaining our economic recovery. Are we moving ahead? McGinn: ARTBA President Pete Ruane and 2012 ARTBA Chair Paul Yarossi were present when President Obama signed the new surface transportation bill, MAP-21, into law this past July. Immediately after leaving the White House, Yarossi announced the formation of an ARTBA task force that will spearhead the association’s efforts to secure additional federal investment for MAP-21, work with federal, state and local agencies on the implementation of the new law, and look ahead toward the next reauthorization process. When you consider what MAP-21 was up against, that it took almost three years to get done, and that it will expire in two years, you can see how important it is to start preparing now. CEG: Would the task force recommend steps that Congress should take? McGinn: MAP-21 provided needed market funding and stability over the short term, but the long-term revenue challenges facing the Highway Trust Fund remain. We must get Congress to step up and fund the federal transportation capital investment program properly with a sustainable and robust dedicated revenue stream. CEG: In ARTBA’s estimation, how much should we be spending on our highways and how would this funding affect our economy? McGinn: According to the U.S. DOT there is currently a $20 billion annual shortfall at the federal level just to maintain status quo road conditions. So that’s not even to improve our transportation network for the millions of new drivers and commuters expected to come onto the system over the next several years — that’s just to maintain the existing network.

CEG: What’s the outlook on how many years would be funded by the next bill? McGinn: If I could predict what Congress will do, I’d be a very wealthy woman. I can tell you that infrastructure projects like those our members help build take years to complete. So, multi-year spending authorization is needed to give states the certainty they need to move forward on projects. The last highway bill, SAFETEA LU, basically funded six years of work. After it expired in 2009, it was extended 10 times until the present transportation bill was passed and signed into law. The time that the next bill will cover depends on Congress coming up with a long term revenue stream. CEG: Could efforts to avoid automatic cuts under the “fiscal cliff” crisis result in cutting funds for highway work? McGinn: The “fiscal cliff” is a combination of roughly 8 percent across-the-board spending cuts (sequestration) and tax increases due to the expiration of tax cuts mostly enacted in 2001 and 2003. The HTF is largely exempt. CEG: Does ARTBA still favor raising the federal fuel tax to increase funding of the Highway Trust Fund? McGinn: Let’s not get hung up on one method. We are focusing on all user-based means to strengthen the Highway Trust Fund, as well as ensuring that Congress and the President fully understand the dire consequences of inaction. CEG: Is there any evidence that MAP-21 is creating more jobs? McGinn: The measure basically continues current funding levels for the highway program. Our economists say MAP-21 is providing some measure of stability to the transportation construction industry, but no new money means no new growth.

through the soft earth. The architects’ conceptual design, intended to be reflective of the flow of the river, imparts a subterranean quality reminiscent of an underground room carved from centuries of moving water. Lighting from multiple directions adds relief to the heavy rock for-

mations, transforming the entrance atrium, which will serve as a space for community gatherings and special events, into a geological fantasy. The image of fluid river channels separated by land masses also guided the organization of gallery arrangement and the layout of corridors for circulation.

Juxtaposed Influences The project consists of construction of a steel structure with exterior copper louvers and interior precast concrete walls. Total project budget is $20.6 million, with construction accounting for approximately $12.5 million. Site demolition and preparation began in late 2008. In 2009, work focused on utility relocation and drainage, as well as pilings and foundation work. Construction of the building started June 28, 2010. Currently, the exhibit design and fabrication is in progress, with a budget of $3.3 million. Expected completion of construction is January 2013. It will then take another six months to install and complete the finishing touches on the exhibits. The museum has a projected opening of summer 2013.

Overlooking formed by a series of complex walls. the historic Cane River Lake at the boundary of the Red River valley, the building’s architecture takes its cues from the rolling landscape. Architecturally, the design of the building, which was crafted by Trahan Architects of Baton Rouge, La., will reflect historical components blended with contemporary features. The museum’s boxy exterior walls are clad in louvers of local wood planks, a reference to the rich timber legacy of the region, but the interior opens to a parametric-built environment where light and space are formed by a series of complex walls.

Art Imitates Nature Depicting the river’s flow, 1,150 unique precast stone wall panels will shape interior walls. Each stone weighs between 6,000 to 9,000 lbs. (2,721 to 4,082 kg), is BIMdesigned and individually built and layered. “According to the Precast Institute,” Davis said, “this is the first-ever application of curvilinear precast panels in our country. “The greatest challenge on this project is fabrication and installation of the interior precast panels,” Davis added. “Each panel has a unique form, which is cut using a C&C machine. We are using BIM modeling and it is difficult to fabricate the panels from the model/shop drawing. Because each panel is unique and very heavy, it is challenging to manage the required connections. The self-supporting steel also is a challenge.” As reported by Architecture Daily, Craft Engineering Studio worked collaboratively with the fabrication design team consisting of Method Design, the geometry and detailing consultant; CASE Inc., BIM manager and technology consultant; and David Kufferman P.E., specialty steel consultant and engineer. Together, they developed and engineered analytical models of the cast stone panels, as well as the complicated structural steel support structure that secures each stone panel with an individual set of customized connections. Using an integrated multiplatform approach, they developed custom tools to manage the complex geometrical relationships between the flexible connection system and the structural support frame. Key to their success was program-

ming software operated in conjunction with Robot structural analysis software and SDS/2 for steel detailing, which allowed Method to develop a system that allowed them to transfer geometrical data across multiple software programs. This resulted in creating a very detailed model of each structural member, support and connection. Coordinating Detail “Because of the uniqueness of the project and the unusual application of materials in ways they have not been used before, it has been a very challenging and amazing project,” Davis said. “Everything about this project is unique and innovative.” The innovative and highly technical nature of the project requires meticulous communication. “Every detail and aspect of the project is carefully reviewed [and] studied,” Davis indicated. “There are lots of conference calls and coordination meetings, mock-ups are done and some alternative methods are tried in order to determine what may be the best way to achieve the desired product.” CASE, brought in to assist general contractor VCC, LLC with its first BIM project, provided modeling services for electrical, HVAC, sprinkler and precast. Using 3-D documents supplied by the design team, CASE developed custom automation procedures to create a fully detailed 3-D model consisting of more than 1,000 unique panels of the skin system to be used for structural analysis, fabrication, quantification and systems coordination. The model was used as a communication tool during weekly web-based coordination meetings, enabling sub-contractors, engineers, fabricators and tradesmen to easily understand and track issues in the context of other trades and focus on problem-solving. In addition, the model was used to generate shop tickets for use during fabrication. VCC, along with major subcontractors Advanced Cast Stone, Masonry Arts and F.L. Crane, has been working six days a week, 10 hours a day, to meet the spring deadline. Assisting with this unique project is specialty construction equipment such as three articulated boom lifts, three reach-

over forklifts, six or seven electric scissor lifts and a large crane. Materials used include steel, copper, precast concrete, storefront glass, integral white concrete and modified bitumen roofing materials. Funding Flow When completed, the museum will exhibit donated memorabilia embodying the contributions of diverse cultures that have shaped the state and promote understanding of Louisiana’s legacy. “It’s the stuff of legends that will be showcased in a spectacular museum,” exclaimed Lisa Babin, president and chief executive officer of the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Foundation. Just as the museum’s complex design reflects disparate subjects in one fluid structure encased within a locally inspired façade, and its exhibits represent divergent aspects of the southern state’s culture, so too does funding exemplify the coming together of incongruent methods. Last fall the state legislature’s bond commission approved $20 million in funding for the project. An additional $1.1 million in private donations was acquired. “There has been $367,000 of the almost $1.1 million originally needed that has been already secured,” Babin said to reporters. “The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Foundation is committed to raising the remaining $718,050 required to complete the exhibit plan.” To do so, they held a monthlong $250,000 challenge grant in September in which every monetary donation was matched up to a maximum of $250,000. “We are thrilled by the generous support provided with this challenge grant which has the potential of raising $500,000 of the $718,050 needed,” said Babin. “This grant allows any gift to be instantly doubled, speeding us on our path of achieving our private funding goal.” Exhibit-naming opportunities are expected to raise additional funds.

GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) Construction could be delayed for a road connecting the Mississippi State Port of Gulfport to Interstate 10. The Sun Herald reported Nov. 26 that a federal judge has revoked the Mississippi Department of Transportation’s federal permit to build the northern end of the road. MDOT had planned to create a conservation area by using 1,600 acres near the interstate, as a trade-off for filling 162 acres of wetlands to build the road. However, U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden found the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers acted “arbitrarily and capriciously” in issuing permits. He revoked the permit to MDOT and told the Corps to conduct a new environmental review before issuing any other permit. State and local officials have said it’s important to have a new road connecting the port with I-10 to help ease the transport of goods coming and going from the expanding port. Ozerden’s ruling came in a lawsuit filed by a company that owns about 1,300 of the 1,600 acres MDOT wants to acquire through eminent domain. The suit was filed by Ward

Gulfport Properties and a company representative, T. Jerard Ward, against the Corps of Engineers. Ozerden said environmental assessment of the project was based on a different wetlands mitigation plan. Under that plan, MDOT would have bought mitigation credits in other areas to compensate for wetlands loss in the Turkey Creek watershed, a floodprone area in north Gulfport. The conservation easement involving the Ward property was offered after the EPA insisted the wetlands be conserved in the Turkey Creek watershed to minimize environmental damage. After the Ward property was substituted as a conservation easement, the Corps approved the permit for road construction, concluding no significant environmental impact would result. “However, no actual wetlands delineation for this property appears in the record,” Ozerden wrote. “This makes it impossible to determine, based upon the record, whether any wetlands at all are actually being preserved by the permit’s required mitigation and, if so, what the character or quality of those wetlands is, or what the actual mitigation ratio might be.”

Budget Constraints Thwart Highway 82 Bypass Project GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) State transportation officials say budget constraints have brought the U.S. Highway 82 bypass project in Greenville to a standstill. Erik Arnold, the project engineer, told the Delta Democrat Times that phase one was completed in November between the Mississippi River Bridge to a half-mile east of Mississippi Highway 1. The $32 million four-phase project started in March of 2008. Mississippi Department of Transportation

officials say construction can begin immediately once funds become available. Arnold said the plans are ready, utilities are moved, and the right of way has been bought. The second phase would pick up at Highway 1 with grading and drainage extending to Leland. Paving will be completed in phases three and four. Arnold said the project is a high priority for MDOT.

Distinguished Service Award Next to the Rental Hall of Fame, this is the most prestigious award ARA presents. This award recognizes an individual who has demonstrated exemplary leadership with long-term service to the association at the national, state/provincial and local levels. Hal Y. Roe, president of Bradley Rentals in Cleveland, Tenn., receives this year’s Distinguished Service Award. He’s being honored for his continued service and dedication to ARA since 1992, when his business opened. Roe began his involvement serving on the ARA of Tennessee board and has served on a wide range of committees for ARA as well as the ARA Insurance board, the ARA Political Action Committee (ARAPAC) Council and ARA Foundation board. He was elected an officer of the ARA board in 2009, serving as president-elect, president and chairman of the board. He continues to serve as an ARA Foundation Rental Executive Advisory Program (REAP) advisor, providing mentoring and guidance to others within the industry. Meritorious Service Award The award recognizes an individual who has demonstrated exemplary leadership in a defined area of association service, such as through a committee, special project or service activity. Terry Bryant, president of Bryant’s Rent-All of Lexington in Lexington, Ky., will receive the Meritorious Service Award for his personal activity, support and dedication in the area of public policy and government affairs. He’s been a member of ARA since 1976. In 1993, Bryant became the legislative chair for ARA of Kentucky and has remained active in the state association since that time. He’s also served on ARA’s Government Affairs Committee numerous times, including as chair, has been a continuous supporter of ARAPAC for more than 17 years and also attended the National Legislative Caucus in Washington, D.C., during that same time. Bryant is personally acquainted with his federal and state legislators and is a strong supporter of member involvement in the political process. Special Service Award This honor recognizes an industry supplier who has made an outstanding contribution to the association and will be presented to Dave Garton, marketing manager of John Deere, Moline, Ill. The company is a 35-year associate member of ARA and exhibitor at The Rental Show. Garton has worked in the rental industry and been involved with ARA since 2006, serving on the Construction and Industrial Services Shared Interest Group and

Construction U Task Force. Currently he’s serving a threeyear term as ARA Foundation trustee. He’s also worked with John Deere in support of The Rental Show sponsorships and donations for the ARA Foundation charity auction, which for several years has been a VIP trip to the John Deere Classic PGA tournament each July. His added touches for the top bidders, such as welcoming them at the airport, arranging visits with John Deere senior staff and bringing them to the ARA headquarters, expand the experience and he serves as an ambassador for the ARA Foundation, ARA and John Deere for these trips. Outstanding Leadership Award Recipients of this award have demonstrated superlative leadership at the grassroots level — state, local or provincial. This year’s recipient is Darren Morizet , owner of PartyTime Rentals in Poughquag, N.Y., who is being recognized for his work in reactivating ARA of New York. The first meeting to discuss reactivating the state association was at The Rental Show 2011 and, during the meeting, Morizet volunteered to serve as president. He’s been an outstanding leader, engaging fellow members of the board of directors to actively represent the membership and established consistency with meetings to serve the members in all areas of the state.

SECTION Dynapac Introduces New High Density Paver Models Pages 41-53

Dynapac has added model SD2500CS to its high density asphalt paver family. Originally introduced to Europe in 2011, the SD2500CS is powered by an interim Tier IV certified Cummins QSB 6.7 water-cooled turbo-diesel engine rated for 200 hp (149 kW) at 2,200 rpm. The engine also features an “infinitely variable eco mode” that produces less noise and decreases fuel consumption as the operator tunes the rpm level to a given working situation’s requirements. For even finer performance the paver can be outfitted with Dynapac’s VarioSpeed drive option with automated load sensing. VarioSpeed provides continuous computerized rpm optimization that can save up to 15 percent in fuel costs and promote increased engine life.

The SD2500CS offers a choice of high density, tamping bar screeds. Dynapac’s Vario screeds, the V5100TVE or V6000TVE, have a minimum work width of 8 ft. (2.4 m) and maximum work width of 32 ft. (9.7 m). They offer multiple adjustment options while offering increased screed stability. A foldable side shield for the screed makes it fast and easy to comply with transportation regulations. The side shield folds directly behind the screed, eliminating overhang on the left and right side during transportation on a bed trailer. The Dynapac SD2500CS also offers hydraulic push rollers, which minimize impact from the truck during asphalt delivery to the paver. Acting as a shock absorber for the paver, they guard against bumps in the asphalt surface. The result is a

high quality application for a continuously smooth roadway, according to the manufacturer. The SD2500CS operator’s platform can slide hydraulically from one side to the other with a safe-impact system to provide safe docking for the operator. An optional “weather house” offers better visibility and protection during harsh weather conditions. It consists of a hardened front screen with three wiper blades, large side windows and Plexiglas screens on the lower left and right part of the platform. Dynapac offers a new remote control and color screed display with easy and intuitive handling. Energy-saving LED working lights

and an adjustable camera system has been added so that an operator can easily monitor the application. For more information, visit www.dynapac.us.

Volvo SD75 Soil Compactor Provides High Output, Lower Emissions 

When it comes to demanding compacting jobs, the new SD75 soil compactor from Volvo Construction Equipment is loaded with features that enable it to take on a wide range of applications. The highly maneuverable, mid-sized compactor is suited for small to medium sized jobs and even performs well inside structures. New features improve the SD75 compacting capability — boosting efficiency and productivity while lowering cost of operation, according to the manufacturer. Built for optimum compacting performance, the SD75 provides greater material density in fewer passes. High centrifugal forces, high frequency and drum weight all combine to produce the energy necessary for enhanced compaction and high machine productivity.

Dynamic drum forces can be adapted to suit a wide range of terrain or depth of material. High or low amplitudes are selectable from the operator control panel. Additionally, two drum frequencies can be chosen with a console switch to compensate for changing soil types and conditions and an optional 5-frequency feature further boosts the machine’s versatility and performance. A center joint provides +/-38 degrees of articulation and +/-17 degrees of drum oscillation for stable, flexible machine performance and greater operator comfort over rough terrain. Because the 66-in. (167 cm) wide drum remains in constant contact with the ground surface, compaction is both smooth and uniform. Able to negotiate slopes of up to 33 percent, the SD75 drum frame design

A center joint provides +/-38 degrees of articulation and +/-17 degrees of drum oscillation for stable, flexible machine performance and greater operator comfort over rough terrain.

offers better, more effective gradeability. The possibility of digging into the surface or damaging the machine is eliminated, as an angled frame allows better clearance in the approach to steep slopes and while loading, according to the manufacturer. The SD75 is a steady and stable work platform with a heavily constructed axle that is integrated in the drive train for an efficient rear-wheel drive system. Traction is increased with the No-Spin differential axle, which prevents tire slippage and improves gradeability, performance and productivity. The optional Ultra-Grade traction system also improves gradeability when operating on slippery surfaces and steep inclines. More Productive, With More Care for the Environment One highlight of the new SD75 is its powerful 4-cylinder Volvo engine (99.2 hp [73.9 kW]) which combines Tier IVi and EPA certification with the performance, dependability and fuel efficiency for which Volvo is known. A diesel particulate filter (DPF) burns off and eliminates material build-up — further reducing emissions. A hydraulically operated engine cooling fan runs only when needed, reducing fuel consumption and noise levels. Volvo long life coolants protect the machine for up to 6,000 hours, resulting in lowered operating costs and more uptime. For added peace of mind, the engine is backed by Volvo dealer service and parts support, as well as a 1,000-hour warranty. Safety First — and Last In line with the Volvo commitment to safety, the emergency stop system can be easily activated by the operator, shutting down the engine, applying the brakes and stopping the machine’s movement. Further promoting safe operating conditions, a switch located in the seat will shut the machine down and apply the brakes if the operator rises from the seat for more than five seconds during operation. Care for the environment also is ingrained in the design of the new SD75. Even simple things are important — for example a new hydraulic oil fill and Volvo standard sight glass are now included as standard, minimizing the possibility of oil spills and overfilling.

It’s a rubber tire roller that vibrates with enough centrifugal force to equal the output of a 55,000 pound pneumatic. The GW750 handles the toughest HMA mixes with ease, getting balanced high densities from the top through the bottom of the mat. Great on SMA, too!

With 50 years serving the pavement preservation industry, the International Slurry Surfacing Association (ISSA) is proud to be a supporter of the National Center for Asphalt Technology’s (NCAT) Pavement Preservation Effectiveness Study, the fifth cycle of the Pavement Test Track. Performance monitoring of pavement preservation treatments in this cycle of the Pavement Test Track and on 2,500 ft. (762 m) of Lee Road 159 in Alabama will allow researchers to determine the service life extension of various pavement preservation techniques relative to pretreatment condition and explore ways to stretch transportation budgets. Seven state departments of transportation and multiple private sponsors have stepped forward to support the expansion of the scope of this research project to include proactive maintenance methods. These methods include those that ISSA supports, slurry and micro surfacing, chip sealing and crack treatment, among others and will be used alone or in combination to

1487 Rock Springs Road Kingsport, TN 37664 (423) 349-6111

test several methods in varying circumstances. ISSA is not only donating funding to this project, but the members that drive the association are donating their time, knowledge, expertise and even equipment to help facilitate proper pretreatment to posttreatment condition comparisons. “This three-year study should be great for the pavement preservation industry,” stated Doug Ford, 2012 ISSA president. “It will provide quantified results for each process and insight into the timing and processes that best address each level of deterioration.” Since its creation in 1986, NCAT has sought to be a world leader in hot mix asphalt research, development, technology and education. The fourth cycle of the Pavement Test Track began in August 2009 and was completed 25 months later in September 2011. By design, this cycle took 17 of the over 40 200-ft. (61 m) sections of roadway involved in this project and either reconstructed or rehabilitated

each of those sections. Now in the fifth cycle, NCAT has already applied a rejuvenating fog seal to two sections and a triple chip seal, which will be evaluated as an interlayer, to one section of the most recently reconstructed or rehabilitated sections of roadway. Lee Road 159 will be divided into 25, 100-ft. (30.5 m) sections that will receive other pavement preservation treatments including various methods of micro surfacing, chip sealing, crack treatment, fog sealing, scrub sealing and fiber mat. The Pavement Test Track and Lee Road 159 will be evaluated on a regular basis over the course of this 3-year study and progress reports will be published periodically. Founded in 1963, the International Slurry Surfacing Association (ISSA) is a nonprofit association dedicated to the interests, education and success of slurry and micro surfacing, chip sealing and crack treatment professionals and corporations around the world.

Projects Totaling $179M Get Funding By Melinda Deslatte ASSOCIATED PRESS

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) More than $179 million in state construction projects will go forward after a key money panel approved the list of spending plans submitted by Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration. The projects, supported without objection by the Bond Commission, include upgrades to the New Orleans sports arena, roofing and ventilation repairs at public colleges, highway widening and flood protection work. Also approved were dozens of pet projects for lawmakers, including sports facility construction, playground improvements, levee work and wastewater system upgrades in municipalities and parishes. The Hungarian Settlement Historical Society will get $170,000 for a museum in Livingston Parish. The Avondale Booster Club will receive $400,000 for playground and club upgrades. And the Junior League of Greater New Orleans is slated to get $400,000 to renovate its headquarters, thrift shop and annex building. Lawmakers added millions more to

the construction budget — called the “capital outlay” bill — than the state can spend for the fiscal year that began July 1. That left the governor’s office to decide which projects advanced, because it submits the list to the Bond Commission for cash lines of credit. The state has a bond cap that limits Louisiana to borrowing $350 million per year for construction projects, and some of that money was set aside for projects continuing from prior years. John Davis, director of the governor’s Office of Facility Planning and Control, said the Jindal administration weeded through the list to prioritize the projects. “This is a culmination of several months of work,” Davis said. Lawmakers who overloaded the construction budget acknowledged the situation gave the Jindal administration an ability to reward and punish legislators for their votes and policy positions. Among the approved projects on the list, City Park in New Orleans will get $150,000 for maintenance and tennis center improvements, Southern University at Shreveport will receive

$2 million for a new classroom building and St. Tammany Parish is in line for $980,000 for an emergency shelter and livestock facility addition. The state will spend another $2.6 million on a performing arts center in Jefferson Parish, which has greatly exceeded its budget and generated finger-pointing among elected officials over who’s to blame for the mushroomed costs. Members of the Bond Commission, including lawmakers, Jindal administration leaders and statewide elected officials, questioned little of the spending. Among the handful of inquiries, Treasurer John Kennedy asked why the state was spending money on new mental health clinic space in New Orleans after shutting down a state-run mental hospital in the city. “Why wouldn’t we, rather than build new ones, move the mental health facilities in the old one?” Kennedy said. Jindal’s top budget adviser, Commissioner of Administration Kristy Nichols, said the construction plans are for smaller mental health clinics, with outpatient beds.

Higher Torque With Lower Emissions These new machines meet the requirements of the Tier IV interim (Tier IVi) emissions legislation. The L45G and L50G are fitted with the Volvo D4 four-cylinder turbocharged off-highway diesel engine, which features cooled gas recirculation and a particulate filter with active regeneration. The diesel particulate filter (DPF) temporarily holds the particulate matter and then incinerates it, further reducing emissions. This process is conducted without any loss of performance during operation. Producing between 98 to 114 hp (73 to 85 kW) the D4 engine also leads the industry in terms of fuel efficiency, reliability and quietness, according to the manufacturer.

They may be at the smaller end of the Volvo Construction Equipment wheel loader range, but even with their compact design, the new L45G and L50G are big when it comes to application potential. With the flexibility to work in a wide range of job sites, these machines are fitted with a hydraulic attachment bracket for quick tool changeovers. The L45G and L50G feature the latest emissions-compliant engines and TP Linkage, ensuring high breakout force and parallel movement throughout the entire lifting range. This combination gives high tiltback torque and lifting power, increasing productivity when loading or rehandling. The progressive lift helps retain loose bucket material and minimizes disturbing the load when lifting pallets. The breakout torque also is useful if a log grapple is fitted, giving complete load control in all positions. The combination of stable load and highreach linkage design allows for dumping into high-sided trucks, according to the manufacturer. The L45G and L50G feature the modern stylistic redesign of the G-Series range.

Volvo Calls D4 Engine Fuel Efficient, Reliable, Quiet VOLVO from page 56

low engine speeds, combined with loadsensing hydraulics, promotes work at a lower rpm — extending engine life, lowering fuel use and reducing noise. The engine cooling fan allows the engine to reach optimum working temperature faster and operates only when needed. The fan also is reversible, automatically blowing air back through the cooling pack in order to remove debris drawn into the radiator. Engine and Drivetrain — Better Together The engine drivetrain, axles, hydraulics and lifting systems are all designed for improved productivity, higher rim pull, lower emissions, greater smoothness, serviceability, and operator comfort. Both the L45G and L50G come with an infinitely variable hydrostatic transmission. Maximum rim pull is available at all speeds, regardless of travel direction. For work in wet and/or heavy conditions, 100 percent differential locks in the heavyduty axles allow all wheels to turn simultaneously. The rear axle is allowed to oscillate, increasing stability of the machine by maintaining ground contact and providing opti-

mum traction in difficult terrain. Load-sensing hydraulics deliver power to hydraulic functions only when needed, eliminating unnecessary oil pumping. Maintaining the optimum balance between lifting and traction forces allows effective bucket penetration when digging or pushing into a pile. The smooth and precise pilotoperated hydraulics enable the operator to comfortably control the attachment — resulting in higher productivity and comfort. High Productivity With Low Stress The latest generation Volvo cab is fitted to the L45G and L50G. ROPS/FOPS approved, visibility to the rear of the machine, to the bucket edge, and to the centrally located instrumentation is excellent. Mounted on viscous dampers, operators are isolated from vibration and excessive noise, reducing fatigue levels. Operators can breathe easily, due to efficient air-management and filtering systems — and take on the job in a comfortable, clean work environment. Depending on preference, operators can choose between joystick and multi-lever hydraulic pilot control — both providing precise and steady load. To encourage operators to work smoothly an eco pedal applies an appropri-

ate amount of mechanical back-pressure, encouraging low fuel consumption operating techniques. Fuel use also is reduced, due to a loadsensing steering system that only activates when the wheel is turned. An inch brake pedal allows further machine control. Applying light pressure on the pedal slows the machine using the hydraulic transmission only, while firmer pressure engages the axle brakes, which can be useful if working on an incline. Getting Attached to the L45G and L50G Flexibility is a key feature of these two wheel loaders and it’s enhanced by an attachment bracket that enables quick tool changes. ISO standardized, the bracket allows the operator to clearly see the attachment points from the cab, and the variety of Volvo attachments available is extensive. All are designed and approved by Volvo to work in harmony with the machines’ link-arm geometry, breakout, rim pull, and lifting forces. Tools include buckets, pallet forks, grapples, etc. Servicing and Support The G-Series comes with advanced elec-

tronic monitoring diagnostics that are designed to prolong machine life, enhance uptime and maximize productivity. Contronics monitors functions in real time and alerts the operator if problems occur. MATRIS charts and analyzes data on machine handling and operation. VCADS Pro is a service tool that allows easy troubleshooting. The CareTrack telematics system from Volvo Construction Equipment enables operators and owners to know exact machine location and all operating data to be securely viewed via the Internet; providing all the information needed to make quick business decisions on operation, maintenance and repairs. Servicing is made easy with the G-Series, with daily pre-start items quickly checked and scheduled service items conveniently grouped together. The engine cover also provides good ventilation of the engine compartment. It gives quick access for easy cleaning or servicing duties. And consumables, such as filters, are easy to reach and easy to replace. The rear axles are supported on maintenance-free cradles and include greased-for-life bearings and bushings that reduce service requirements.

Komatsu’s D155AX-7 Increases Productivity, Fuel Efficiency Komatsu America Corp.’s D155AX-7 crawler dozer is powered by an EPA Tier IV Interim and EU Stage 3B emission certified Komatsu engine. The powerful SAA6D140E engine is rated at 354 net hp (264 kW). The highly efficient automatic transmission is matched with the new engine to achieve productivity and maintains the same fuel economy as the model it replaces. Komatsu’s new crawler dozer has an operating weight of 87,100 lbs. (39,508 kg). In addition, the D155AX-7 builds on the Sigmadozer blade that was introduced in 2006, but now incorporates a new auto blade pitch function. The new dozer is equipped with the latest Komtrax technology, which sends machine operating information to a secure Web site utilizing wireless technology. Hour meter, location, cautions and maintenance alerts — to name a few of its features — are relayed to the web application for analysis. The Komtrax fleet monitoring system increases machine availability, reduces the risk of machine theft, allows for remote diagnosis by the distributor, and provides a wealth of other information to drive business efficiency and productivity. Special features of the new crawler dozer include: • EPA Tier IV Interim and EU Stage 3B Emission Certified Engine Built upon Tier III technology, the SAA6D140E engine provides high horsepower while maintaining the same low fuel consumption as the D155AX-6. The Komatsu Tier IV Interim engine platform uses an advanced electronic control system to manage air flow rate, fuel injection, combustion parameters, and after treatment functions to optimize performance, reduce emissions, and provide advanced diagnostic capability. The D155AX-7 incorporates a much larger cooling package with dramatically improved airflow to keep the new Tier IV Interim engine running cool in harsh working conditions. Komatsu also has developed a hydraulically actuated Komatsu variable geometry turbocharger (KVGT) and an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve, resulting in better precision and air management as well as longer component life. The Komatsu diesel particulate filter (KDPF) has an integrated design that will not interfere with daily operation but will keep the operator aware of its status, according to the manufacturer. • Sigmadozer blade for productivity The D155AX-7 is equipped with a Sigmadozer blade, which gives the machine a high blade capacity of 12.3 cu. yds. (9.4 cu m). Based on a new excavation theory, Sigmadozer improves dozing performance and increases productivity over a conventional semi-U blade. The blade features a frontal design concept adopted for digging and rolling material at the center of the blade. The new blade increases soil holding capacity. Digging resistance is reduced for a smoother flow of material so larger amounts of soil can be dozed with less power.

• Automatic transmission improves fuel economy The D155AX-7 has an automatic gearshift transmission and lock-up torque converter that reduces fuel consumption and offers enhanced power train efficiency. The lockup mechanics of the torque converter automatically transfers engine power directly to the transmission, decreasing fuel consumption by 10 percent. Because of the efficiency of the electronically controlled engine and transmission, fuel consumption is decreased while machine power is maintained. Two gearshift modes — automatic and manual — can be easily selected to fit the appropriate application: automatic for general dozing and manual for dozing and ripping rough ground. For maximum operating efficiency, the automatic gearshift transmission shifts to the optimal gear range based on the working conditions and load placed. • Ergonomic joystick controls for ease of operation and comfort Komatsu’s ergonomically designed palm command control system (PCCS) gives operators maximum control, offering a relaxed posture and superb fine control to eliminate operator fatigue. Thumb push buttons simplify transmission gear shifting. The electronic blade and new ripper control joystick offer excellent machine control. The ripper now incorporates a new auto-return function to increase operator efficiency when ripping. Engine speed is controlled using an easy-to-operate electronic throttle control dial, which eliminates maintenance of linkage and joints, according to the manufacturer.

• Electronic control powertrain for smooth operation The D155AX-7 uses an electronic control power train system that improves operation and productivity. Powerful turns under various work conditions are achieved with the hydrostatic steering system (HSS), which is driven by an independent hydraulic pump and motor to transmit power to both tracks without interruption. Counter-rotation is available for minimum turning radius, providing maneuverability. When operating in adverse conditions such as uneven ground, a K-bogie undercarriage system keeps the correct alignment between the rollers and links for a smoother ride as well as longer component life. • New cab design The new crawler dozer’s comfortable working environment allows the operator to concentrate on the work at hand for increased productivity. A new standard air ride seat with heat has a 15 percent higher capacity. The large cab is integrated with ROPS (roll-over protection) for added side visibility. The dozer’s cab mounts reduce shocks and vibration even over adverse conditions and the interior cab decibel is a very low 75 dB for the quietest working environment. A new, high-resolution large color 7 in. LCD monitor in the cab displays all machine information. This new generation smart monitor displays the information in 25 different languages providing exceptional global support. A rear view monitoring system is standard on the new model.

Cat 7495 Electric Rope Shovel Builds on Proven Design The Cat 7495 and 7495 HF Cat 7495 HF electric rope shovel with new Cat shovel cab loads 797F truck. electric rope shovels have been enhanced with a modern cab and are available with HydraCrowd and the LatchFree dipper system — all designed to boost productivity through easier control and reduced downtime. Additionally, Caterpillar is developing an off-grid power supply, a technology that reduces the amount of generator power required to run an electric rope shovel. The system captures regenerated power from the shovel and uses it during periods of high power demand — effectively reducing the maximum amount of power required from the generators. The technology will enable mining companies to power the 7495 or 7495 HF with just 4 megawatts of generator power, and, as result, to reduce fuel and maintenance costs significantly. The 7495 and 7495 HF both have payloads of 120 tons (109 t) and operating weights of more during training and allows easy access than 1,500 tons (1360 t).

mounted to the dipper back. The system increases reliability by reducing unplanned downtime and enhances safety by reducing the number of maintenance events required. It comes complete with a comprehensive training program to ensure customers achieve maximum system benefits. Off-Grid Power Solution Caterpillar is developing technology that will permit mining companies to power the Cat 7495 or 7495 HF Electric Rope Shovel on just 4 megawatts of generator power. The standard practice uses multiple generators with a total of 8 megawatts or more capacity to achieve rapid response when peak power is required. Of course multiple generators increase maintenance and fuel costs. Additionally, generator-powered electric rope shovels require additional systems to dissipate regenerated energy, because they cannot feed electricity back into the power grid. The Caterpillar off-grid power supply technology stores regenerative energy created during swing deceleration and bucket lowering, and the system uses that power during periods of high demand to reduce the generator load cycle. The system enables a 4-megawatt generator to handle a large electric rope shovel, and it reduces fuel consumption by employing regenerative energy. This technology, currently being validated at the Caterpillar proving grounds in Arizona, is expected to be commercially available in late 2013.

JM Wood Finishes Strong in 2012 With Montgomery Sale

J

M Wood conducted a two-day sale on Dec. 5 and 6 at its headquarters in Montgomery, Ala.

“This was one of the better December auctions in recent memory,” said company Vice President Bryant Wood. “A great finish to our 39th year in business. Prices were good, attendance was high and people seemed relieved that the political season is over and they can get their minds back on work.” More than 1,200 items were sold at the 39th annual winter auction, including a group of 2004 county-owned Cat 140H motorgraders that sold over the internet to Belgium and a group of Mack RD 688S trucks purchased by a diamond miner in attendance and headed for Sierra Leone. Cliff Sizemore (L), Ameri-green, Americus, Ga., and Gary Powell, Country Vista, Buena Vista, Ga., were interested in some of the Deere machines, including this 544J wheel loader.

Steve Woodard, Woodard Construction Company, Ozark, Ala., tests a Grove crane in the sale lineup. A half-dozen Cat 140 H motorgraders packed the ramp and made for some competitive bidding. Opening up a Cat 312BL for inspection and consideration for use in their farming operation are Carroll McPherson (L) and Carroll Browning, Browning Farms, Auburn, Ky.

In search of good machines to add to their inventory are Mike (L) and Jerry Coker, Greenhill Equipment Sales, Florence, Ala. Deep in conversation about the Cat 420E backhoe loader are Jeff Harbin (L), PT Harbin Farms, The Shoals, Ala., and Greg Reed, Reed Construction, Jasper, Ala.

Jimmy Lawler, Lawler Timber Company, Camden, Ala., examines an ASV Positrack RC100 with mulcher attachment and forestry package.

Taking a moment to discuss machines of mutual interest are Allan Harbison (L), Triple H Farms, Arley, Ala., and Richard Densmore Densmore Excavating Inc., Arley, Ala.

Checking out the control panel of a Peterson 4710 horizontal grinder are Malcolm Smith (L), Conecuh Timber, Beatrice, Ala., and Tim Lynch, Northside Equipment, Arab, Ala.

Terex Forestry CTLs Provide Powerful Performance Featuring electronic, 4-cylinder, turbo-powered Perkins Tier IVi diesel engines, the new Terex PT-110G compact track loaders boast 332 ft.-lb. of peak torque at 1,400 rpm, 45 gpm (170 Lpm) of hydraulic flow and a two-speed transmission that allows travel speeds up to 10 mph (16 Kmh).

Terex has introduced the first in its new line of Tier IVinterim compliant compact construction equipment with the PT-110G and PT-110G Forestry compact track loaders. Featuring electronic, 4-cyclinder, turbo-powered Perkins Tier IVi diesel engines, the new Terex PT-110G compact track loaders boast 332 ft.-lb. of peak torque at 1,400 rpm, 45 gpm (170 Lpm) of hydraulic flow and a two-speed transmission that allows travel speeds up to 10 mph (16 Kmh), helping these production loaders achieve peak performance. Providing the power and productivity to get the job done, the 110-hp (82 kW) PT-110G loader has an operating weight of 11,100 lb. (5,035 kg), a tipping load of 7,600 lb. (3,447 kg) — with a 3,800 lb. (1,724 kg) operating capacity at 50 percent tipping load capacity — and a lift height of 125 in. (317 cm). The 111-hp (82.7 kW) PT-110G Forestry loader has an operating weight of 12,100 lb. (5,488 kg), a tipping load of 8,600 lb. (3,901 kg) — with a 4,300 lb. (1,950 kg) operating capacity at 50 percent tipping load capacity — and a lift height of 125 in. These loaders boast powerful productivity with a loadsensing, low-flow auxiliary hydraulics from 0 to 20 gal./min. (0 to 75.7 Lpm), high-flow auxiliary hydraulic capability of 45 gal/min (170 Lpm) at 3,800 psi and 98.7 hydraulic hp. The PT-110G Forestry model meets British Columbia log-

ging standards BC WCB G608. “The new Terex PT-110G compact track loaders offer operators higher peak engine torque, the highest hydraulic flow and top travel speeds in the large-frame size class,” said Jamie Wright, product manager, Terex Construction. “Ideal for general construction, utility, landscape and vegetation management work, the PT-110G loaders are designed with the same features that have made Terex compact track loaders among the best-selling models in the industry. A few new features include a diesel particulate filter and after-cooled Tier IVi-compliant engine for improved performance, a hydraulic fan cooling system for efficient cooling and more production, as well as an open design for ease of access to all critical components to enhance serviceability.” For better cooling capabilities at lower engine speeds and better attachment recovery, the cooling system on the Terex PT-110G models is designed with a tilt-out radiator, largecapacity heat exchanger and a hydraulic reversing fan that only draws 10 hp (7.4kW) from the engine, gaining more power for operation of the attachment and loader drive system. The quiet-operating, 230 to 2,600 rpm variable speed fan can push 11,000 to 14,000 cfm of air and allows operators to trigger it at set intervals to keep the cooling system running at peak performance in the most demanding applications.

Boasting a narrow 6-ft. (1.8 m) profile, 14.8-in. (37.5 cm) ground clearance and 4.3-psi ground pressure, the Terex PT110G compact track loaders are designed to work well in limited access areas, as well as on soft or sensitive surfaces, with minimal damage or impact. These units are engineered with the Terex Posi-Track undercarriage technology and multi-level suspension and are engineered with 48 contact points on the ground for excellent traction and high flotation in all ground conditions, according to the manufacturer. The new PT-110G and PT-110G Foresty loaders are designed with front-mounted quick-connect hydraulic fittings and an electronic connector for control of attachments, allowing them to use industry-standard attachments. These models also are equipped with electronic-over-hydraulic, pilot-operated joystick controls and a comfortable operator station for easy operation. A selectable pattern changer from ISO to “H” pattern comes standard on the PT-110G loaders. On models equipped with heat or AC, a pressurized and sealed enclosed cab comes standard. For serviceability, the PT-110G models feature a 30 degree tilt-back cooler and ROPS for easy access to the hydraulic system, as well as rear-door, hood and side panel access to the engine compartment.

Crude Reality May Force Obama to Make Pipeline Decision PIPELINE from page 1

Keystone XL decision as a really significant decision to signal that dirty fuels are not acceptable in the U.S.,” Danielle Droitsch, a senior attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council, said. Once content with delays that have so far kept the pipeline from moving forward at full speed, opponents of Keystone XL have launched protests in recent weeks at the White House and in Texas urging Obama to nix the project outright. Meanwhile, support for the pipeline appears to be picking up steam on Capitol Hill. But Obama has shown little urgency about the pipeline, which would carry crude oil about 1,700 mi. (2,735 km) from western Canada to Texas Gulf Coast refineries. The pipeline requires State Department approval because it crosses an international boundary. The pipeline became an issue in the campaign, and Obama put it on hold while a plan was worked out to avoid routing it through Nebraska’s environmentally sensitive Sandhills region. TransCanada, the company applying to build it, revised the route, but that caused the lengthy environmental review process to start over. In the meantime, the company split the project into two parts, starting construction in August on a

southern segment between Oklahoma and Texas even as it waits for approval for the northern segment that crosses the Canadian border. Although the lower leg didn’t require Obama’s sign-off, he gave it his blessing in March anyway, irking environmental activists who see the pipeline as a slap to efforts to reduce oil consumption and fend off climate change. “At a time when we are desperately trying to bend the emissions curve downwards, it is wrong to open up a new source of energy that is more carbon intensive and makes the problem worse,” wrote former Vice President Al Gore, now a climate activist, in an email. Still, in an otherwise highly polarized political climate, access to affordable energy has become a rare issue with bipartisan appeal. “It’s just a no-brainer,” Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu said to The Associated Press. “Canada is going to export this oil. It’s either going to come to the U.S. or it’s going to go to Russia or China. Even Democrats that aren’t really excited about oil and gas development generally can figure that out.” Many Democrats from states whose economies depend on oil, like Landrieu, support the pipeline. So do some trade

unions, whose workers stand to gain thousands of new construction jobs. And while environmentalists make up an important part of their base, Democratic lawmakers are under intense pressure to create jobs and reduce American reliance on Mideast oil. There’s less variation among Republicans, who by and large support the project. But in Texas, a deep red state that normally embraces the oil industry, the project has drawn intense opposition from landowners who argue their property along the pipeline’s route is being unfairly condemned. Their complaints, along with those from Texans who oppose an influx of foreign oil from Canadian tar sands, have fostered an unlikely alliance with local environmentalists, who have taken to chaining themselves to machinery and trucks in an attempt to stall construction. The messy politics may demonstrate why Obama punted the decision until after the election. Now both sides are applying pressure with renewed vigor. A group of Keystone XL opponents, organized by climate activist Bill McKibben, marched on the White House in November, hoping to call attention to an issue that got barely a mention during the presidential campaign. Days earlier, a group of senators — nine Democrats and nine

Republicans — sent Obama a letter urging him to stop stalling. North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven, a Republican who helped organize the letter, said there’s been no response from the White House, which declined to comment. Meanwhile, the ratings agency Moody’s said it expects Obama will eventually approve the pipeline, but it won’t be quick. Take too long to approve the permitting, Moody’s warned in a November report, and Obama risks missing the boom in oil prices that instigated the pipeline in the first place. Estimates for how many jobs the pipeline would create range from a few thousand up to 20,000 or more. At 36 in. (91 cm) in diameter, the pipeline will have an initial capacity of 700,000 barrels a day. That’s significant, because demand for oil and gas pipelines is expected to surge over the next four years, according to a November report by The Freedonia Group, a market research firm. A TransCanada spokesman said the company expects a decision by the State Department, which is tasked with determining whether the pipeline is in the national interest, in the first quarter of 2013, and hopes to start construction on the upper portion shortly thereafter. The longer the decision drags on, the less realistic that timeline appears to be.
