WYDOT Widens Cody-Powell Corridor By Rebecca Ragain CEG CORRESPONDENT

Preventive Maintenance Key to B&R’s Success…14

For the crews that work for High Country Construction in Lander, Wyo., there’s no doubt that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has made an impact. In mid-July, High Country Construction started work on a $10.2 million contract for the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) to widen 4 mi. (6.4 km) of U.S. 14A, between the towns of Cody and Powell, from two lanes to five. “We were about out of work with one crew and I put that crew to work by being able to get this job,” said Chad Connell, vice president of High Country Construction. In addition, High Country has brought in five subcontractors for the job. According to WYDOT spokesperson Cody Beers, the department has spent about $40 million in ARRA funding in northwest Wyoming alone. “We feel really good about the amount of work that we’ve been able to spread around to contractors,” said Beers. Competition for ARRA-funded projects has been fierce. Contractors based in neighboring states bid on many Wyoming projects; 34 percent of ARRA projects in Wyoming have gone to in-state contractors. Beers’ district put 2010 completion dates on its 15 ARRA-funded projects to encourage small contractors to bid. “A lot of contractors, like High Country, can only handle one or two projects like this a year… [the 2010 completion date] allowed these people to bid on them, knowing that they have a couple of years to get them done,” see WYDOT page 36

The improved highway is intended to better serve the many commuters who travel the 24 mi. between Cody and Powell — populations 8,000 and 6,000, respectively — for work, as well as summer traffic coming from Yellowstone National Park, 50 mi. west of Cody.

Face Lift Set to Begin UTAStarts Construction on I-40 in Kingman Work on New TRAX Line KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) A $5.7 million repaving project along Kingman’s portion of Interstate 40 is set to begin later this month. Phoenix-based FNF Construction anticipates the repaving work along a 10-mi. (16 km) stretch of I-40 will be started in September. Arizona Department of Transportation spokeswoman Michele Beggs said the work will take place between midnight and 6 p.m. each weekday on both sides of the highway, though crews will cease at 2 p.m. each Friday and resume at 1 a.m. the following Monday. The work also includes installing new traffic sensors and upgraded guard rails, replacing pavement markers and installing new rumble strips on the highway’s shoulders. ADOT said it wants to get the work done before winter sets in.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The Utah Transit Authority has started major work on a new TRAX line to the airport. UTA on Sept. 2 announced that heavy construction work started on the western end of the new line. Dump trucks are currently laying a rocky foundation on the dirt and construction work will move from west to east. The $300 million light-rail extension will be completed in 2012 or 2013. It will run 6 mi. (9.6 km) from downtown Salt Lake City west to the airport. There will be five stops along North Temple before it reaches the airport. Estimated travel time will be 20 minutes. UTA is working on two other TRAX extensions in Draper and in West Valley City. A line traveling through Murray, Midvale, West Jordan and South Jordan also is planned.

Northeast Texas Contractor Success Tied to Versatility By Greg Ehm SPECIAL TO CEG

Installing 31 mi. (50 km) of water line in northeast Texas requires a great deal of planning and the flexibility to use a variety of tools to complete the job. That’s exactly the attitude Billy Cummings takes into every project and is the reason his company, Cummings Construction, located in Sulphur Springs, Texas, has grown to be a respected water and sewer installation firm in only four years. Cumming’s path to owning a construction company has taken many turns. He started out working as a supervisor for his father-inlaw’s construction company. When his father-in-law retired from the business, Cummings decided to give trucking a try, but soon discovered that’s not how he wanted to spend the rest of his life. So in January 2004, he rolled the dice and started Cummings Construction, and the rest is history. Today, Cummings has 14 employees and travels all over northeast Texas working on water and sewer main projects. “The success to my company is clearly my employees,” said Cummings. “They get in there and get the job done right the first time.” Over the years, Cummings has learned to be prepared for any situation. “The ground conditions and landscape in Texas can change dramatically just within a mile, so we utilize a number of installation techniques to handle about any potential situation,” he said. Cumming’s equipment fleet has always included a horizontal directional drill (HDD), as well as a dedicated rubber tire and track trencher. He prefers to use the large track trencher to open the trench simply

because it’s much faster than an excavator. But the drill is a valuable tool to help negotiate river and road crossings. In 2008, Cummings was awarded a 31mi. water main installation project that ran from Commerce to Wolfe City, Texas, along Highway 11. The project began in August 2008 and involved the installation of 4-, 6and 8-in. (10, 15 and 20 cm) Ultra-Blue PVC water mains. The project included a number of creek and road crossings. Cummings was allowed to use his directional drill for the county road crossings, but steel casings were required to be placed under all of the highway crossings. With the sheer number of crossings, Cummings knew it would simply max out the capacity of his HDD rig and this could jeopardize keeping the project on schedule. So with some research and communica-

Cummings was awarded a 31-mi. (50 km) water main installation project that runs from Commerce to Wolfe City, Texas, along Highway 11. The project began in August 2008 and involves the installation of 4-, 6- and 8-in. (10, 15 and 20 cm) Ultra-Blue PVC water mains.

tion with Vermeer Equipment of Texas Inc., Cummings decided to purchase a McLaughlin 24B auger boring machine to complete the dozen highway crossings. “It just made sense, and the McLaughlin auger boring machine offers a great deal of versatility for a variety of underground projects that we encounter weekly,” said Cummings. According to the project specifications, Cummings was required to maintain a minimum 3-ft. (1 m) cover. This took some planning to measure the depth of the ditches on both sides of the road to estimate how deep to pitch the grades. Once Cummings knew the depth of the pitch, he figured out how deep to make the pit in order to get the required 3 ft. of cover. “Once I know the depth to achieve the 3 ft. of cover, I add in 17 inches, which is the

measurement from the bottom of the auger boring machine to its center. Then I add in half the diameter of the casing to get the final depth of the pit,” said Cummings. The pit measured 8 ft. (2.4 m) wide and up to 31 ft. (9.5 m) in length to accommodate the length of the auger boring machine and the 20-ft. (6 m) sections of steel casing. Cummings excavated the pit about 2 ft. (0.6 m) deeper for one bucket width the entire length of the pit on the left side of where the machine was placed. The boring machine tracks were placed just to the right of this trench. “This allows the boring machine to drop the spoils in this trench and eliminates the need to move the spoils by hand or use the excavator to extract the spoils from the pit,” said Cummings. Once the machine was in place Cummings used a level to ensure the first joint of casing was level with his intended grade and monitored the casing throughout the bore. Once the first casing was in place he maintained that elevation until the bore was completed. The average bore is about 60 ft. (18 m) in length. The McLaughlin auger boring machine played a vital role in the completion of the job. Cummings also appreciated knowing that his local Vermeer dealer services the McLaughlin line and that if there were any problems he could call them and they would be out to fix the problem. “The machine has performed great. Kevin Wise, our McLaughlin representative, came out and helped us with our first bore and stayed until late that night when we finally finished,” said Cummings. “If you’ve got a problem or a question, all you got to do is pick up the phone and they’ll be there to help.”

The pit will measure 8 ft. (2.4 m) wide and up to 31 ft. (9.5 m) in length to accommodate the length of the auger boring machine and the 20-ft. (6 m) sections of steel casing.

Vermeer Hosts Demo Days in Waco

V

ermeer Equipment Texas-Louisiana, based in Irving, Texas, sponsored a Customer Demo Day Sept. 10. The event took place at the company’s Elm Mott (Waco) facility. Many Vermeer, Yanmar and McLaughlin dealer and manufacturer representatives were onhand to answer questions and instruct in the operations of the machines that were available to the customers and demonstrations. Approximately 80 customers attended from as far as Dallas, Plano and Whitney, Texas. The customers tried their hands at operating the machines, watching the demonstrations and enjoying the picnic style lunch of homemade hamburgers and hotdogs prepared onsite. The event took place just south of the company’s facility, which allowed for horizontal, directional boring, trenching, excavating, stump grinding, skid steer operation and tree shredding/chipping. All these task were performed by 18 Vermeer, six Yanmar and two McGlaughlin/Vermeer machines. GyroTrac MISWACO Drilling Fluids, DCI Locators and HammerHead Moles also had displays on site. One of the highlights of the day was the Vermeer skid steer and Yanmar mini excavator competition. The contest consisted of maneuvering the MotoTrack through a precise course, using the Yanmar mini excavator to place an eyebolt in a traffic cone and place a basketball without dropping it. The winners of each event received a Vermeer watch and a lot of admiration. The Ring in the Cone winner was Kelly Smith, S&H Powerline Construction in Crawford, Texas. David Sanchez of MJ Sheridan in Round Rock, Texas, won the skid steer competition and Bobby Ramsey of Heart of Texas Electric Co-op in McGregor, Texas, won the Place the Basketball contest. “Everyone had a good time at the event and got to experience one on one operation of some machines they might not normally use,” stated Mark Krueger, chief operating officer of Vermeer Texas-Louisiana. “We felt timing was good to get our customers out of their offices and enjoy themselves while building relationships and get acquainted with some of our new equipment.” For more information, call 972/255-3500.

USS Missouri Gets Makeover With Farrow System 450 Max The USS Missouri recently purchased the environmentally-friendly Farrow System 450 Max, a cleaning method that allows workers to aggressively strip the heaviest coatings and even remove rust from severely corroded areas in a short amount of time. The “Mighty Mo,” the World War II battleship best known for hosting the formal surrender of Japan in 1945 and now a decommissioned vessel called the Battleship Missouri Memorial, will leave its historic spot in October for the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard for repairs. The Farrow System 450 Max is ideal for areas difficult to access and clean. Utilizing on-site water and compressed air, these machines deliver efficient, chemical-free, environmentally- safe cleaning just like other trailer mounted units, according to the manufacturer. The MAX series machines are fully caged and can be forked, lowered, or hoisted into almost any job site, including storage tanks. The solid steel crash frame, stainless steel control panel, fully powder coated pot, and corrosion resistant fittings are built to take abuse. This machine, originally built for off shore applications, will withstand the most extreme corrosive conditions to deliver dependable operation in any chal-

lenging environment, according to the manufacturer. The Farrow System is a low pressure system that works by adding heat to the cleaning process. This adds energy, creates free flow, adds control, and increases cleaning speeds. It can quickly remove protective coatings, oxidation, and graffiti from surfaces without damaging them. It also cleans wood, plastics, composites, steel, aluminum, brass, ceramic tile, concrete, asphalt, decorative pavers, stone, brick, and more. The system uses Farrow Green Clean, a natural and chemical-free volcanic crystal. Hawthorne Power Systems has the exclusive Farrow System distribution for San Diego and Hawaii.

Preventive Maintenance Key for B&R Equipment in Texas Preventive Maintenance has been promoted by heavy equipment manufactures and dealers for years in order to preserve the life and working capabilities of heavy equipment. In these economic times, preventive maintenance comes to the forefront of equipment owners’ priorities. In 2003, B&R Equipment Company, located in Keller and Sherman, Texas, was well into becoming the rental company it is today. Understanding the need to preserve the life of its rental equipment and keep its fleet of 150 units profitable, B&R Equipment established the B&R lube department in order to take care of their own fleet of rental equipment. Recognizing the need for lubrication maintenance of both large and small construction companies, B&R Equipment decided to expand its capabilities to encompass multiple companies in the North Texas area. As its reputation grew, it was quickly contracted to fill the needs of other companies throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas. The company’s technicians are trained to work on all types of heavy equipment from large dozers, scrapers and loaders to light plants. “We use only the highest quality filters and fluids available on the market and are able to keep them at a very affordable price,” stated Scott Nemeth, Lube Services manager. According to Bill Kasner, owner of B&R Equipment Company, the company maintains three modern lube trucks with all the latest in technical devices in order keep the lube maintenance time to a minimum and keep its customers’ machines on the job and working. The trucks are fitted with large capacity, double walled tanks for greater condensation protection and are sampled

regularly to ensure there are no contaminants or leaks in the system. The trucks also are equipped with PTO driven pumps that deliver accurate amounts of fluids via the use of a digitally metered system. “Our trucks carry multiple engine oils predesignated for the equipment, hydraulic fluids, antifreeze and gear oil along with scheduled filters for each unit we service,” Nemeth said. The trucks are equipped with retrieval tanks so the oil can be recovered and B&R has 25 construction companies as customers that have more than 400 units in their maintenance program.

According to Bill Kasner, owner of B&R Equipment Company, the company maintain three modern lube trucks with all the latest in technical devices in order keep the lube maintenance time to a minimum and keep their customers machine on the job and working.

deposited in B&R’s recycling oil units. A sophisticated lube service report is maintained with each unit and updated after each service interval is completed. The report contains a record of all information regarding the service including the make,

mode and serial number on a detailed checklist that provides the customer with an explanation of the work performed, fluid amounts and filter replacements. Each unit has a custom built program that best fits the machine and the customer’s

needs. Sample fluids are taken at the beginning of each service and sent to a lab to be analyzed for contaminants and condensation. These samples also are used to detect any wear materials such as metal fragments from gears and bearing to brass and copper from seals and rings. The report enhances the life of each component and sustains the performance of each machine, according to B&R. At this time, B&R has 25 construction companies as customers that have more than 400 units in their maintenance program. Their program is really very simple yet ensures that the investment made by the contractor will be here for years to come. “As all contractors know, they have hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in their equipment and simply taking care of their equipment will bring more return on their dollar and keep their companies going during these economically troubled times…it’s just a matter of taking care of what you own,” concluded Nemeth. For more information, call 817/379-1340.

Topcon Extending the Reach of Technology in Phoenix By Don Talend SPECIAL TO CEG

The breadth of global navigation satellite system (GNSS)-enabled machine control applications continues to expand, yielding benefits in the areas of dirtmoving productivity, worker safety and project profitability. A recent bridge-widening project near Phoenix demonstrates the expanding reach of this technology in two respects: grading control for excavators and bridge pier excavations that require deep, narrow cuts with precise slopes. In early 2009, Haydon Building Corp., Phoenix, was awarded a $7.9 million contract by the town of Gilbert, a suburb located southeast of Phoenix, for bridge widening and roadway section improvements among other work along Higley Road, a major north-south arterial. A lane was to be added in each direction over a wash in the Eastern Maricopa Floodway that passes under the existing 450-ft. bridge. Haydon recently adopted GNSS-enabled machine control and saw an opportunity to use the technology for a cutting-edge task: verifying the location, dimensions and wall slope of 10 footing excavations of 27 ft. deep, 97 ft. long and 70 ft. wide (8.3 by 30 by 21.3 m) that support five piers on either side of the existing bridge that support the new lanes on the box-beam girder structure. The use of GNSS eliminated the need to stake the excavations and for a surveyor to verify the location, dimensions and wall slope of the footing excavations, saving Haydon and the owner time and money. Just as importantly, use of the technology also eliminated the need for topographical verification via conventional surveying methods, and for a worker to physically enter the excavation for verification, which would have necessitated time-consuming shoring procedures and created a less safe work situation. This project is one example of how GNSS technology is automating grading and excavation. Increasingly, contractors like Haydon are having machine control systems installed on earthmoving, grading and paving equipment such as excavators, scrapers, dozers and motorgraders, plus milling machines and asphalt and concrete pavers. A GNSS machine-control system uses a rugged antenna mounted to a shock-absorbing, vibration-damping pole and a receiver box mounted in a secure location on the machine. Satellites send positioning data to another antenna/receiver combination at a stationary base station. Positioning data also is sent to the machine. The stationary base and machine work together to provide real-time kinetic (RTK) position information, revealing the machine’s three-dimensional location on the site. Software compares the machine’s position to the design grade at a given location.

Haydon Building Co.’s Keith Samples views a GX-60 monitor indicating machine location and bucket position while operating the excavator.

The design grade information was built from site plans. The data files are loaded into a machinemounted control box via a USB flash drive. The control box updates positioning data and sends signals to the hydraulic valves. The blade is automatically positioned for elevation and slope. Other sensors inform the control box of certain machine conditions; for example, dozers used by contractors such as Haydon are equipped with a slope (tilt) sensor on the blade to measure the cross-slope of the cutting edge. “Indicate systems” like Topcon’s 3-D systems provide visual guidance for machine operators, who manually control the machine to cut or fill to the desired grade. During the past couple of years, these systems have evolved in terms of flexibility and reliability. An alternative to a base station — one that Haydon uses — is subscribing to a network that provides positioning corrections using cellular technology. Where available — such as through Branco Machinery of Gilbert, which also sold and services Haydon’s Topcon Positioning Systems GNSS equipment — this option provides flexibility. The contractor does not have to set up a separate base station on each job site. “With a base station, you’re setting on a known point on that job and on that known point, that base station transmits to the machine or rover corrections of where it is,” said Todd Hermsen, Haydon’s Topcon sales representative. “When you move to a cellular communication with a network, the machine is actually dialing up to that network via cellular communication and receiving its corrections.” He added that Branco’s TAZNet (Topcon Arizona Network), which went online in mid-2007, reaches the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas.

Haydon Building Corp. recently used Topcon Positioning Systems’ X63 excavator control system and a cellular network operated by Branco Machinery to dig pier footing excavations for a bridge-widening project near Phoenix. Jeff Fields of Haydon (L) and Todd Hermsen of Branco Machinery point out that the system eliminated the need for staking, topographical verification using conventional surveying techniques and for a worker to enter the excavation.

“What it allows [Haydon] to do is take their base and rovers that they may already have and instead of tying up that base station on that job, give them the flexibility of taking that base station and converting it to a rover. So someone like Jeff [Fields, Haydon’s GPS manager] is able to take it out and use it for his survey work and not have to have that base station on the job at all times.” Once Branco installs cables and sensors on the machine and activates the modem, the contractor accesses the network via a wireless telecommunications service provider. GNSS has become even more reliable and accurate in recent years by adding compatibility with the Russian GLONASS satellite constellation as well as the U.S. Global Positioning System constellation. This dualconstellation capability roughly doubles the number of signals available to the GNSS antenna/receivers and provides a high degree of positioning accuracy. Excavators Require Unique Configurations Equipping excavators with GNSS grading technology, as on this project, requires different configurations from dozers and graders because an excavator has so many moving parts working in conjunction. A GNSS-equipped dozer has a singleslope (tilt) sensor on the blade to measure the cross-slope of the cutting edge. Like a dozer, a grader has a slope sensor for blade tilt, in addition to a rotation sensor at the rotation swivel. A third sensor, known as a mainfall sensor, is mounted on the mainframe of a grader and provides slope measurement in the direction of machine travel for adjustment of the blade up or down. These sensors work together to maintain cross-slope while allowing for the rotation of the grader blade.

A recent innovation for dozer or grader finegrading work is Topcon’s 3-D millimeter GPS+, a combination of laser and GNSS that is designed to yield much higher precision than conventional machine control. The excavator’s bucket can operate toward and away from the operator cab as well as up and down. It has a swinging body and a two-piece articulating element between the machine body and the earthmoving attachment, giving it a wider range of motion and requiring more sensors to account for swing, cross-slope, and long slope as well as to pinpoint the bucket location. A typical excavator control system must make four measurements: cab to boom, boom to stick, stick to bucket hinge, and bucket hinge to bucket teeth. The GNSS must account for boom-and-stick articulation (and thus the distance between the bucket and cab at any given moment), bucket tilt, and machine body levelness. Tilt sensors on the stick, boom, bucket and machine body continuously calculate the distance from the cab to the bucket teeth. Topcon’s 2D systems for excavators comprise these non-GNSS sensors and can detect various physical references such as the existing surface, a hub, a previous cut or a rotating laser. The operator can choose a reference and enter a cut or slope depth. The systems allow the operator to create multiple elevation or slope designs and cut to the design without the need to stop and re-establish a reference. For three-dimensional grade control, the GNSS components on the machine serve as the machine’s 3-D GNSS sensors and pinpoint the location of the bucket teeth relative to the slope. Haydon’s Caterpillar excavator was recently equipped with Topcon’s X63 see TOPCON page 44

NorAm Upgrades Its 65E Grader NorAm Construction Equipment’s latest version of the 65E compact motorgrader features Tier III emission compliant engines. In addition to the standard Cummins QSB4.5 engine, the company announced the availability of the optional Caterpillar C4.4 engine. The updated NorAm 65E also features a digital electronic display and diagnostics system to monitor the machine operating systems to ensure optimum performance and ease of maintenance and repair. According to Eric Mueller, president of NorAm, “We originally looked at this change as strictly a compliance issue. However, we quickly learned that the Tier III engines are quieter and provide increased torque and superior electronic diagnostic capabilities. The engineering process allowed us the opportunity to incorporate a number of other serviceability improvements as well as various styling enhancements.” New upgrades for the NorAm 65E include: • Digital electronic display and diagnostic system to monitor the machine operating systems. • Enlarged engine side panels for improved service access. • Hood mounted grab handles, additional decals, new

headlights, and radio option group. • Easy fill and secure hydraulic tank system — located inside the engine compartment • Five point transport tie-down system These features along with the full power shift transmission and torque converter, the 53 in. gear driven circle, and the optional 90 degree bank slope saddle, position the 65E as the compact grader of choice with paving contractors, site development contractors, road maintenance and repair operations, and municipalities, according to the manufacturer. Dave Watson, vice president, added “Our powerful and productive Tier III machine offers customers a ‘value solution’ to their grading needs. The NorAm 65E is extremely versatile, easy to operate, and very reliable. Today’s contractors are looking for ways to strengthen their bottom line and the 65E offers them a lower cost alternative to large graders in many applications. We truly encourage customers to demonstrate or rent a NorAm 65E from their local dealer, they will be pleasantly surprised with the machine’s performance.” For more information, call 847/934-6565 or visit www.noram65.com.

Hitachi’s Swing Boom Excavator ‘Not Too Big, Not Too Small’ The Zaxis 85USB-3 excavator is a compact ultra-short from Hitachi that is the perfect size for all kinds of jobs including landscaping, light residential, urban renewal and underground utilities. Not too big and not too small, the ZX85USB3 delivers all the power, smoothness, precision, and ease of operation owners and operators expect from the larger Hitachi excavators — in an easy-to-maneuver package, according to the manufacturer. The unit lets the operator focus on the “business end” of production and worry less about what’s behind. And it reduces the potential for damage to the surrounding area or to the machine itself. Getting closer to the action also eliminates the need for a lot of hand work. The unit can be fitted with steel shoes or with rubber pads or rubber crawler belts. The new shape of the backfill blade provides better crowding performance, additional machine stability, and is easier to see by the operator. The swing boom enables parallel digging to walls, guard rails, and foundations, making it ideal for excavation and utility work, according to the manufacturer. Scalpel-Like Precision With Less Effort At the heart of this new excavator is the match of the turbo-charged Isuzu 4LE2X engine and Hitachi’s own HIOS III hydraulic system. The Isuzu Interim Tier-IV-certified engine works well at high altitudes without sacrificing performance.

Regenerative flow on the boom, stick and bucket cylinders result in faster down movements, extremely fine control, and multitasking. Spacious, Comfortable Cab The special shape of the ZX85USB-3 cab accommodates the path of the swing boom without sacrificing comfort or convenience. The cab also features a deluxe suspension cloth seat, advanced multilingual LCD monitor, slide-open front glass, generous leg room, short-throw/loweffort controls, and tinted, transparent roof window. Lower Fuel Consumption, More Torque Two engine modes can be selected to match engine rpm to the operating conditions and application. The E (economy) mode for light-duty work reduces fuel consumption from eight to twelve percent, by lowering engine speed — without sacrificing productivity. It also reduces noise levels. The P (standard) mode provides a balance of power and fuel economy for most tasks. It controls the engine speed from slow idle to fast idle in response to the position of the engine speed dial.

The swing boom enables parallel digging to walls, guard rails, and foundations, making it ideal for excavation and utility work.

Ditch Witch Unveils Two New Compact Trenchers The Ditch Witch organization has released two new low-cost trenchers: the RT10 and the RT12. Both walk-behind trenchers feature fully hydrostatic steering for easy handling, and come with the choice of high-flotation tires — for traction and stability — or heavy-duty tracks that oscillate. Unlike rigid tracks, these “walking” tracks adjust more easily to uneven and rough terrain. Both units also feature a trail wheel that increases stability and reduces breakover when loading and unloading or going over a curb. Like all Ditch Witch trenchers, both the RT10 and RT12 have color-coded controls. Because of its ease of use, and because it is ideal for short runs, the 11-hp (8.2 kW) (net) RT10 is expected to be a popular rental item among homeowners and small contractors. For bigger jobs and longer runs, the RT12 is equipped with more horsepower (16 gross hp) [11.9 kW] and an oil cooler that keeps its Vanguard engine running strong even on the hottest days, according to the manufacturer. Numerous options are available for both units to help operators save time and money. One is a pin-on backfill blade that restores the trench after the product is installed. The company said the savings in time and labor — versus hand-filling the trench with a shovel — will quickly be realized when the customer uses the option for the first time. Another option, primarily for contractors, is the Roto Witch, an attachment that enables the operator to bore under sidewalks, driveways, and other obstacles. Both the RT10 and RT12 travel up to 3.7 mph (5.9 kmh) when equipped with tires, which helps a contractor be more productive when moving around the job site. And when facing tough ground conditions, the simple change of a sprocket is all it takes to increase

Komatsu’s WA50-6 Compact Wheel Loader Features Latest KOMTRAX Technology Komatsu America Corp.’s (KAC) WA50-6 compact wheel loader is designed to bring increased production and added operator comfort to contractors in a variety of construction, landscaping, nursery and other applications. The WA50-6 has an operating weight of 8,100 lbs. (3,674 kg), and features a maximum dump height of 8 ft. 1 in. (2.4 m). The standard auxiliary hydraulics simplify hydraulic attachment installation enhancing the capability and versatility of the machine. The automatic electronic bucket leveling is controlled by the bucket control lever and increases the productivity of the compact wheel loader, according to the manufacturer. The WA50-6 is equipped with the latest KOMTRAX technology, which sends machine operating information to a secure Web site utilizing wireless technology. Data such as operating hours, machine location and machine utilization are relayed to the web application for analysis. The KOMTRAX fleet monitoring system increases machine availability, reduces the risk of machine theft and provides a wealth of other information to drive business efficiency. Special features of the WA50-6 include:

excavating applications. • N mode is appropriate for normal/moderate loading or load and carry applications. • S mode virtually eliminates wheel slip allowing the machine to perform well in mud, snow, and other soft or slick applications.

Operator Comfort For operator comfort, the WA50-6 allows easy entry and egress due to the wide entrance and well placed handholds. A fully adjustable suspension seat with retractable seatbelt lessens fatigue, and an optional cab with air conditioner provides a comfortable operator station throughout the year.

Service and Maintenance To simplify maintenance, Komatsu equipped the WA50-6 with numerous features. The wide opening engine cover provides access to daily checkpoints. The filters are remote mounted and arranged collectively for easy inspection and replacement. In addition, the radiator and oil cooler are side by side making them easy to inspect and clean, and it ensures that only the freshest air reaches each component. Extended greasing and service intervals make it easier to schedule maintenance. For more information, visit www.komatsuamerica.com.

Productivity The WA50-6 features three working modes, which enables the operator to choose the mode that best fits his application: • P mode provides maximum rimpull for grading and

Value The WA50-6 gets its power from a Komatsu engine with a net horsepower of 38.6 hp (28.8 kW). The direct injection engine meets EPA emissions requirements and is fuel efficient without sacrificing power or efficiency. The “Delta Boom” loader design improves visibility to the work equipment, and the long wheelbase of 6 ft. 3 in. (1.9 m) improves ride quality and stability, according to the manufacturer. Doosan’s DX27Z, DX30Z and DX35Z mini-excavators Center hinge tapered roller bearings feature 1,000 hour are small in size only. lubrication intervals. The wrap around counterweight protects the main body of the WA50-6 and the rear combination lamps and exhaust pipe are built into the counterweight for added protection.

The WA50-6 has an operating weight of 8,100 lbs. (3,674 kg), and features a maximum dump height of 8 ft. 1 in. (2.4 m).

Doosan Infracore’s Mini-Excavators Fit in Tight Work Spaces

With maximum fuel efficiency, expanded cabin space, easy maintenance and cost effectiveness, the only thing small about Doosan Infracore’s new mini-excavators is their functional, compact size. The zero tail-swing design allows operators to work in tough to reach spaces and maximize their efficiency in confined areas. The DX27Z, DX30Z and DX35Z mini-excavators features include: • Increased production and improved fuel economy, attributed to the electronic optimization of the fuel system and the Tier III engine. • Improved ergonomics, increases comfort and all round visibility. • Improved reliability is achieved through the use of high performance materials combined with new methods of structural stress analysis, and leads to increased component life expectancy, thus reducing running costs. • Reduced maintenance increases the availability and reduces operating costs of the excavator. • Welded, unitized dozer blade provides durability even under harsh working conditions • The large capacity forced air cleaner removes more than 99 percent of airborne particles, reducing the risk of engine contamination, making the cleaning and cartridge change intervals greater. • Integrated grease piping is designed for ease of maintenance of the swing bearing and swing cylinder. These models — like most other Doosan machines — are covered by the company’s 48-hour parts guarantee. If Doosan fails to deliver the requested replacement parts in time, a rental machine or gift card, equal to the rental rate up to one month, will be given to the equipment owner. This guarantees the part in the hand of the end-user, and was designed specifically to maximize operational uptime. For more information, visit www.demoadoosan.com.

ARRAFunds Accelerate Cody-Powell Corridor Improvements in Wyoming WYDOT from page 1

explained Beers. In High Country’s case, the contractor takes on jobs such as mine reclamation, golf courses, and airports — mostly within the state of Wyoming — to the tune of $15 to $20 million per year. With the U.S. 14A Cody-Powell project scheduled for completion next October, High Country’s crews are currently in full production. They’re relying heavily on scrapers to move fill on both sides of the existing road, which will stay in place until next year. “A lot of our projects anymore aren’t set up to do a lot of scraper work,” said Beers. “But this is a fairly flat area and we’re moving a lot of rock from a pit site to the edges of the road, and scrapers are working well there.” In addition to scrapers, High Country is using articulated dump trucks and excavators. A small excavator has been leased for this project; the rest of the equipment is part of the contractor’s Caterpillar-heavy fleet. Crews are having to work around some utility poles still standing in the middle of the road. After design, the shovelready project had been shelved until at least next year. So when stimulus money allowed the project to move forward earlier than expected, “the utility contractors really had to hustle,” as Connell put it. Another challenging aspect of the project is the installation of thousands of yards of 96-inch RCP pipe. High Country plans to finish the water line by winter, when the project’s focus will shift to working on a small bridge that crosses an irrigation canal. Next summer’s work will include tearing up the original roadway and finishing the roadwork. “We hope to start paving in May or June,” said Beers. The improved highway is intended to better serve the many commuters who travel the 24 mi. between Cody and Powell — populations 8,000 and 6,000, respectively — for work, as well as summer traffic coming from Yellowstone National Park, 50 mi. west of Cody. Traffic loads between Cody and Powell have “grown massively” in recent years, said Beers. At the eastern limits

of Cody, for example, daily traffic increased from 4,500 to 6,500 in ten years. A significant portion of the traffic is related to agriculture, as trucks haul beans, beets and alfalfa from surrounding farms. High Country’s current contract is part of a broader CodyPowell corridor improvement plan that includes four similar projects finished over the past eight years, totaling 14 mi. of improved roadway. After High Country finishes its work, only two 3 mi. sections will remain to complete the plan. Beers said: “We’re trying to finish this corridor, and we’ve maintained our commitment to doing just that. But it’s expensive.” (This story also can be found on Construction Equipment Guide’s Web site at www.constructionequipmentguide.com.) CEG

In mid-July, High Country Construction started work on a $10.2 million contract for the Wyoming Department of Transportation to widen 4 mi. (6.4 km) of U.S. 14A, between the towns of Cody and Powell, from two lanes to five.

CNH Parts & Service Unveils Plans for Facility in Oregon CNH Parts & Service, the product support business of agricultural and construction equipment maker CNH Global N.V., unveiled plans to occupy a newly developed 250,000-sq.-ft. distribution center in Portland, Ore. Company officials expect the parts distribution facility to be fully operational in the first quarter of 2010. The facility will serve more than 130 New Holland, Case IH and Case Construction equipment dealerships in the Pacific Northwest, and is expected to bring 35 to 40 new jobs to the Portland area, according to Anu Goel, vice president, North American Parts Operations for CNH Parts & Service. CNH is investing more than $15 million in the new distribution center, which also allows for future expansion. “CNH’s choice of Portland for significant investment and new job creation is very welcome news,” said Bruce Warner, executive director of the Portland Development Commission. “We look forward to partnering with the company to support the development of this new facility.” CNH has been working closely with ProLogis, a global provider of distribution facilities, to establish the new parts distribution center at Prologis Park PDX, which is located about 2.5 mi. from the Portland International Airport. “This particular site was chosen for its

proximity to the Portland International Airport and port facilities, as well as its access to the major interstate highways in the region,” according to Goel. “Once it is operational, we anticipate that the new Portland distribution facility will be a key logistics and transportation hub within our network and our new gateway to the Pacific Northwest market.” The new parts distribution facility will extend the company’s next-day distribution capabilities to equipment dealerships in nearly all regions of North America, and marks the completion of the company’s transition of its distribution operations from third-party logistics providers in North America to distribution sites that are managed and staffed by CNH. The Portland project also continues the company’s previously-announced plans to improve dealer and customer service, improve efficiency, and reduce overall logistics costs of its parts distribution network. In February of 2007, CNH opened a 500,000sq.-ft. parts distribution center in Cameron, Mo.; in September, 2003, the company opened a master depot in Lebanon, Ind. Once the Portland center is up and running, the company’s parts distribution operations will be handled by 11 facilities in North America. For more information, visit www.cnh.com.

John Deere Equipment to Use Engines With EGR Technology John Deere will use cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) engines with exhaust filters consisting of a diesel oxidation catalyst/diesel particulate filter in its construction equipment to meet the 2011 Interim Tier IV (iT4)/Stage III B emissions regulations mandated by the EPA and EU for diesel engines 174 hp (130 kW) and above. “We’re looking to provide the simplest iT4 solution for equipment users, all while delivering the productivity, uptime and low daily operating costs that customers expect from Deere,” said Joe Mastanduno, product marketing manager, engines and drivetrains, for John Deere Construction & Forestry. “We believe cooled EGR with exhaust filters is the right technology right now.” Deere’s approach to the iT4 solution builds upon the current clean burning and fuel efficient Tier III/Stage III A PowerTech Plus engine platform manufactured by John Deere Power Systems. A Simpler Solution The John Deere cooled EGR engine platform for iT4 compliance is simpler, more operator friendly and less complex to maintain compared to SCR (selective catalytic reduction) systems, according to the manufacturer.

“Unlike SCR, this IT4 solution doesn’t require liquid urea to achieve emissions compliance, so there are no additional fluids to worry about obtaining, filling or storing on remote job sites at proper temperatures,” Mastanduno said. “EGR is a single-fluid solution, and that fluid is diesel fuel.” Field Proven, Fuel Efficient John Deere was the first manufacturer to widely commercialize off-highway Tier III/Stage III A cooled EGR diesel engines. Extensive testing in key products featuring these engines, such as the 350D excavator, 700J crawler dozer and the new 772G motorgrader, has shown a 10-percent or greater advantage in “material moved per fuel used.” Total Integration and Support John Deere designs, manufactures and services the engine, drivetrain, hydraulics, electronic control unit, cooling and other vehicle systems as part of the complete equipment package. This integrated approach maximizes performance, operator convenience and fuel economy, all with an eye toward providing outstanding overall value to customers.

Haydon Building Taps GNSS for Bridge Widening Job TOPCON from page 16

grade-control system, which is specifically designed for excavators. The system consists of four temperature-compensated 360-degree CAN-based tilt sensors that measure angles from the cab, boom, stick and bucket; a GX-60 color touch screen control box; two GPS+ antennae; and a GPS+ receiver. As the pier footings were excavated, the operator viewed on the GX-60 the machine’s exact position on the site, in addition to the bucket’s constant position. The system eliminated the need for a grade checker to continuously monitor excavation depth. Haydon had Dirt Pro LLC of Higley, Ariz., build 3-D site

models and loaded the models into the X63 system control box via a flash drive. By viewing the 3-D digital site model on the monitor, the operator avoided over-excavation and minimized material waste. “There are a few key things with an excavator that makes this type of system appealing to a contractor: safety, productivity and the elimination of over-excavation,” notes Hermsen. “It allows them to keep their employees out of the excavation. Also, they can control the bedding materials and eliminate over-excavation. So when they are supposed to put down 4 inches of bedding material, there’s actually 4 inches, not 6, 8 or 10 inches. Over time, that’s where the systems pay for themselves as well as the increase in production.”

Putting 3-D Grading to Work Haydon has incorporated GNSS grade-control technology into its day-to-day operations, having purchased two X63 systems in 2008; the Higley Road bridge-widening project was one of the company’s first uses of the system. The company may purchase several more X63 systems in the future as the technology becomes an even bigger part of day-to-day operations, according to Fields. “What we’re doing a little differently with the 3-D system is the holes we’re digging,” said Fields, adding that most contractors that he knows of have used 3-D machine control for applications such as grading roadway subgrades. Fields uses the GNSS equipment to verify takeoff estimates and collect location data used to build digital site models using Carlson software. Fields also troubleshoots the system with the help of Branco and Hermsen. With dozers backfilling the newly constructed piers in the distance in early March 2009, Haydon’s Fields, Project Manager Troy Gjerde and Project Superintendent Keith Samples recalled the speed at which the 1,000-cu.-yd. (765 cu m) footing excavations were dug and graded over the previous three weeks. “Jeff’s been bringing a lot more to our attention, what we can do with the system, so I thought, heck, we knew exactly what our excavations needed to look like,” said Gjerde. “I thought that maybe this system that Jeff was telling us about could work for them and really, the system worked just beautifully,” adding that the system provided positioning accuracy within one-tenth of a foot. Gjerde noted that staking the footing excavations would have taken a staking crew about two hours apiece at an additional cost of several thousand dollars. Use of the system also saved several thousand dollars that otherwise would have been required to pay a surveyor to verify the location, slope and depth of each excavation, Gjerde added. “If we wouldn’t have had this system, we would have had to have a grade checker out here the whole time, pulling stakes and checking the slope continually,” he said. “I would say it would have taken us a half a day to a day longer.” Fields added that the use of cellular technology further enhanced productivity. “For one, you don’t have two sets of equipment to haul around,” Fields said. “The other thing is, you don’t have [a base station] sitting out in the middle of the road; if your control point is close to traffic, you don’t have it sitting there where it can get bumped around by machines.” By the time the bridge-widening project was under way, Haydon did not need any convincing of the X63 system’s accuracy, noted Fields, who attended a manufacturer-sponsored training course soon after he was hired. “My main concern when I started on the network was accuracy,” he said. “I gave it probably two months of rechecking everything. I’d actually double-check the system’s accuracy with a total station, but I don’t have to anymore — I’m satisfied that the accuracy is maintained with the network.” Gjerde added that Haydon’s confidence in the system was such that the company would rely on it heavily for a project involving the location of several miles of underground utilities later in the spring. Fortunately, the operators’ learning curve was not steep, said Gjerde. “We had three different operators — two very experienced operators and a guy who’s our universal operator — and believe it or not, the guy who’s the least experienced on the excavator did the best job with the system,” Gjerde pointed out. “I don’t even think it was a matter of hours for them to learn it. I think it took a couple of the guys a little time to get the functionality of the module — what button to push to get the views — but once they figured that out, it was really simple for them.”

Volvo Unveils New MT2000, MW500 Milling Machines Volvo Construction Equipment has developed a new class of milling machines for the road development industry with the introduction of the Volvo MT2000 and Volvo MW500. With the addition of these two milling machines to its road machinery product line, Volvo now offers equipment for every phase of roadway construction and rehabilitation, from milling and grading to paving and compaction. Volvo MT2000 Milling Machine The Volvo MT2000 is a four-track, frontload, half-lane milling machine powered by a 610-hp. (455 kW) Tier III Cummins engine. The Volvo MT2000 offers three distinct engine and drum cutting speeds selectable from the operator’s panel. The low-speed selection provides higher torque at a lower engine rpm to power through tough material or deep-cut applications. The high-speed selection is available for maximum travel speed on shallow cutting depths. The standard cutting speed is used to provide maximum horsepower and efficiency at normal cutting depths. The Volvo MT2000 can run both 78.74in. (200 cm) and 86.02-in. (218 cm) wide drums.

In addition, the new Volvo MT2000 offers: • Four-track system with features to improve milling performance • Independently controlled gathering and discharge conveyors with variable speed adjustment to meet cutting drum capacity • Dual operating stations with advanced technology in intuitive operator panels • Flexibility to control both sides of machine and front or rear from one grade

and slope control panel • Serviceability with walk-in engine compartment Volvo MW500 Milling Machine The Volvo MW500 is a four-wheel, rearloading, utility-class milling machine that offers a standard cutting width of 19.69 in. (50 cm). Because of its compact size and maneuverability, ideal applications include patching, joints, trenching and close cutting

around street and roadway obstructions. The four-wheel Volvo MW500 has an extremely tight cutting radius of 7.87 in. (20 cm), which is comparable to many threewheel machines on the market. The rightrear support leg and wheel can be swiveled inboard for flush cutting. The Volvo MW500 offers all-wheel-drive for optimal traction and features anti-slip control (ASC) as standard. Volvo’s line manager system works in conjunction with the ASC to allow the operator to maintain a constant speed of operation and direction of travel without being adversely affected by the rotation of the milling drum. The 29.53-in. (75 cm) diameter drum offers a maximum cutting depth of 8.27 in. (21 cm) with a standard cutting width of 19.69 in. (50 cm). In addition, the new Volvo MW500 offers: • Optional conveyor package with quickdisconnect conveyor and hydraulically raised rear moldboard • Adjustable steering wheel column and innovative control panel with automatic precision depth control and advanced diagnostic capabilities For more information, visit www.volvo.com.

Sakai’s SW990 Brings Powerful Performance to Paving Projects Sakai America’s new SW990 double drum, high-frequency vibratory asphalt roller brings powerful performance to asphalt paving projects with its 4,000 vpm, Deutz engine and dual drum drive system. The SW990 offers a drum width of 84 in. (213 cm) and 4,000 vpm, which allows for 10 to 12 impacts per foot at 4.55 mph. (7.3 kmh). This feature allows for faster rolling speeds while maintaining the proper impacts per foot to achieve compaction. The drums also are machined smooth and edges are rounded for a smooth mat surface. The SW990 is an ideal roller for compaction of county, state and interstate highways and airport runways, according to the manufacturer. The SW990’s powerful yet fuel efficient Deutz TCD2012L06-2V water-cooled, turbo-charged diesel engine boasts 166 hp (124 kW). This engine fully complies with the current emission standards and is mounted on rubber isolators to absorb vibration. The SW990 also offers enhanced

traction with its dual drum drive system. This system eliminates bow wave build-up in the front of the machine. This drum system has been designed completely separate from the vibration system to minimize wear and tear. The machine’s drive motors are cross mounted with the vibration motors balancing the weight from front to rear, as well as from left to right. The operator platform is a rubberisolated floating deck design, which minimizes vibration to the operator, reducing fatigue. The user-friendly operator’s console rotates 180 degrees with the instrument panel rotating in conjunction with the seat. This ensures that the operator has the controls within easy reach and that the gauges are in view regardless of the seat’s position. The control panel allows the operator to change the amplitude and frequency without getting off the roller, significantly reducing downtime. ROPS and seat belts are standard features on every Sakai roller sold in North America. Sakai also has added its

ExactCompact system as a standard feature to the SW990’s control panel. The ExactCompact system measures impact spacing and determines the speed that the roller should travel to obtain exact compaction. Once targeted impact spacing has been determined on a test strip, the operator programs the settings into the system. While rolling, the operator simply adjusts ground speed until the green lights are illuminated on the ExactCompact meter. This simplifies and increases roller operation while ensuring proper compaction and eliminating extra passes, according to the manufacturer. Sakai’s spray system is another standard feature on the SW990, consisting of rustproof tanks, stainless steel pipes and brass nozzles that can easily be replaced by hand. The spray system also comes with a timer, triple filtration system to prevent clogging from debris and a pressurized, emergency back-up pump to provide water in the event of a pump failure. For more information, call The SW990 offers a drum width of 84 in. (213 cm) and 4,000 800/323-0535 or visit www.saka- vpm, which allows for 10 to 12 impacts per foot at 4.55 mph. iamerica.com.

Bobcat Company to Consolidate All Operations in N.D. Bobcat Company is transferring all North American machinery production to its original manufacturing facility in Gwinner, N.D. This will result in discontinuing production at Bobcat’s Bismarck, N.D., plant by the end of 2009. Currently, Bobcat mini excavators, the Toolcat utility work machine, the S70 skid steer loader and mini track loaders are made in Bismarck, while all other Bobcat skid steer loaders, compact track loaders, and allwheel steer loaders are manufactured in Gwinner. With the consolidation, all machines — including the only mini excavators made in North America — will move to Gwinner, home of the first production three-wheeled loader (the precursor to the skid steer loader) in 1958.

“This was a difficult decision because Bismarck has been a vital part of the Bobcat story for more than 30 years. But, good companies adapt to change, and this is a realignment that will best enable us to serve our dealers and customers moving forward.”

R i c h G o l d s b u ry Bobcat Americas

“This was a difficult decision because Bismarck has been a vital part of the Bobcat story for more than 30 years,” said Rich Goldsbury, president of Bobcat Americas. “But, good companies adapt to change, and

this is a realignment that will best enable us to serve our dealers and customers moving forward.” Over the next three months, 475 production positions will be phased out of

Bismarck, but as many as 390 jobs will remain in North Dakota to accommodate the consolidation. Bismarck will retain 150 positions across product engineering, finance, accounts payable and aftermarket parts — areas unaffected by the move. The Bobcat Manufacturing Support Center also will remain in Bismarck. Bobcat began producing machines in Bismarck as Melroe Manufacturing Company in 1974 after the company acquired Bismarck-based Kirschmann Manufacturing, maker of the Spra-Coupe crop sprayer (AGCO acquired the SpraCoupe line in 1998 from Ingersoll Rand — Bobcat’s parent company at the time). The Bismarck facility began producing mini excavators in 1989, and the Toolcat utility work machine was launched in 2003.

Okla. Transportation Commission Approves $4B Construction Plan OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The Oklahoma Transportation Commission has approved a $4 billion, eight-year construction plan that includes work on 563 bridges. According to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the proposal announced also includes more than 446 mi. (718 km) of shoulder and other upgrades to

two-lane roads and $1.9 billion in improvements to major highways. Transportation Secretary Gary Ridley said there are 109 more bridges in this year’s proposal than in last and the work on them will cost about $260 million. Ridley said the work

would help ease Oklahoma’s deteriorating bridge situation. As of 2008, Oklahoma had about 5,680 bridges that require significant maintenance, repairs or replacement. Ridley believes it will take 12 to 15 years to alleviate the problem.

Manitex International…

Badger Equipment Unveils New Line in Winona, Minn.

B

Badger CD4430 lifts a heavy ton load in the demo area.

9:00 AM Sat., Oct. 17 NEW LOCATION!!!! Brown Heatly Bldg. 4900 N. Lamar Blvd., Austin, TX

STATE OF TEXAS

adger Equipment unveiled and demonstrated Manitex International’s new rough-terrain crane to numerous dealers and customers at its facility in Winona, Minn., on Sept. 9. This product, and the entire product line, will continue to be sold under Badger’s existing brand names. Manitex International, a provider of engineered lifting solutions including boom truck cranes, rough terrain forklifts and special mission oriented vehicles, announced that its Badger Equipment Co. subsidiary has begun full production of a new 30-ton (27 t) cab-down style rough-terrain crane and has received seven initial orders totaling approximately $3 million from crane dealers and railroad equipment distributors. The first delivery of the new crane will commence during September 2009. “The 30-ton cab-down style rough-terrain crane is targeted to niche markets such as railroads, refineries, bridge contractors and heavy industrials,” Paul Marxen sales manager of Badger Equipment, commented. “A unique feature for railroad equipment managers is the ability to have high rail gear integrated at the factory, which simplifies their buying process and reduces lead time to get the crane into the field. It’s a product that we are confident will be met with great enthusiasm by our customers and will find solid

demand in the marketplace.” “Response been very positive and there is significant demand for this new crane as evidenced by the strong initial order pipeline,” said T.A. Lee, general manager of Badger Equipment. “As customers see more of this crane operating in the field we believe this demand will translate into further orders for 2009 supporting our quarter four targets.” Scott Rolston SVP, sales and marketing of Manitex International, concluded: “The company has plans to develop a full product line in the near future designed to support the requirements of our customers in this niche. The Badger brand rough terrain crane now partners with a product line of rail-mounted truck and crawler cranes currently produced by Badger in Winona under the Little Giant brand name. We are exploring opportunities with both brands to take advantage of synergies in distribution with our Manitex truckmounted crane line.” The new Badger cranes will feature a sixsided boom, Tier III Cummins engine, two door high visibility cab and standard allwheel drive/steer, and crab steering. The optional Hi-Rail gear system will be fully integrated for easy adaptation in rail applications. For more information, visit www.badgerequipment.com or www.manitexinternational.com.
