Nicknamed The City of Promise, Sparks, Nev., looks forward to the promise of more jobs when the NOW Foods facility currently under construction becomes fully operational next year. NOW Foods had been operating a distribution facility in the city for eight years when its latest plant was announced in 2011, a time the state's jobless rate was approaching 13 percent. The new facility will handle manufacture and distribution of the company’s nutritional supplements, personal care, health food, and other products. The contract for the Washoe County design/build project was awarded to Reno, Nev., based United Construction Company. Describing the facility as “a significant investment in the community,” Craig A. Willcut, president and CEO of United Construction Company, went on to say that “This project delivery method is based on trust and col-

The cost of key construction materials dropped for the third consecutive month in July, pushing down year-over-year prices for the first time since 2009, according to an analysis of producer price index figures released Aug. 14 by the Associated General Contractors of America. However, association officials warned that recent spikes in diesel fuel and
steel prices may drive up the cost of construction again, and they urged lawmakers to invest in needed infrastructure projects promptly while prices remain low. “This price decline may be the last, given the large jumps in diesel fuel and steel prices that have occurred or been announced since the Labor Department collected this producer price
data in mid-July,” said Ken Simonson, the association’s chief economist. “If economic growth accelerates, we are likely to see an end to discounted prices for construction activity.” The producer price index for inputs to construction — covering materials that go into every type of project, plus items consumed by see PRICES page 32

Caterpillar Celebrates Opening of Facility in Victoria, Texas Executives from Caterpillar Inc. and leaders from the state of Texas celebrated the grand opening of Caterpillar’s hydraulic excavator facility in Victoria, Texas. The new, 1.1 million-sq.-ft. operation represents a $200 million investment by Caterpillar to increase excavator capacity and production in the United States. The company has already hired about 225 new employees in Victoria and plans to continue hiring based on demand for products made in Victoria and as it ramps up production with additional models to be produced at the new facility. “This new facility in Victoria will help us better serve our customers in North America and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to meet some of our newest employees and to see first hand a factory that I am sure will be among the very best we have anywhere in the world,” said Caterpillar Chairman and CEO Doug Oberhelman. Prior to taking part in the grand opening ceremony, Oberhelman toured the new facility with leaders from Caterpillar’s Excavation Division and with Texas Gov. Rick Perry. When operating at full capacity, the new Victoria facility will more than triple the current capacity of hydraulic excavators produced by the company in the United States. The excavators to be produced in Victoria are now made at a Caterpillar facility in Aurora, Ill., and at a Caterpillar facility in Akashi, Japan. Expanding capacity in the United States at the new Victoria location will position Caterpillar to better serve North American excavator customers with a single, dedicated facility.

NOW Facility Project Finishes Early Caterpillar Studies FACILITY from page 1
laboration between all team members. By being open and honest with each other and by being willing to share all information on the project, a design/build delivery method can deliver projects faster and meet all team member expectations. It has also been found to be more cost-effective than the traditional design-bid-build project delivery method.” The cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices) incorporated into this project through the design/build process will allow NOW Foods to meet the cGMP‚s requirements. These include smooth wall (fiberglass reinforced panels) and ceiling (vinyl lay-in) assemblies along with resinous flooring (Stonehard), trench drains, and catch basins, which allows the facility to be easily cleaned to prevent contamination. In addition, the complex HVAC system in the building allows NOW Foods to closely maintain the strict tolerances required for manufacture of their products, resulting in a consistent and high quality product for the public. “The project has been submitted to the US Green Building Council for LEED Silver Certification,” Willcut stated. “Some of the key sustainability components of the project are high efficiency mechanical equipment, materials with low Volatile Building Council content, low water landscape design, skylights to provide natural lighting, and the use of photocells and motion detectors on light fixtures, which combined with the skylights has a positive impact on energy use.” The plant also utilizes environmentally friendly features such as a rooftop photovoltaic (PV) power generation system that is expected to cover 2 percent of the plant’s annual needs. Other green measures embodied in the design include: • Sending over 80% of construction waste to recycling centers • Provision of low water usage plumbing facilities • Management of indoor air quality during construction • Adoption of a green cleaning policy • Use of local and recycled materials The groundbreaking ceremony for the three-phase project was attended by Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, as well as representatives from the City of Sparks, United Construction Company, and the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN), and other dignitaries. “The first phase was for the site work and the 136,000 sq ft building with 85,000 sq. ft. for distribution, 6,000 sq. ft. of office space plus 5,000 sq. ft. for future office, and 40,000 sq. ft. for manufacturing. This work began June 2011 and was completed February 2012,” Willcut said. “In December 2011, NOW Foods requested the addition of a mezzanine for the future manufacturing space, which added 40,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing area. We are currently constructing the manufacturing improvements consisting of 80,000 sq. ft. requiring FDA standards.” Sparks-based Atlas Contractors Inc., handled site preparation, structural excavation, aggregate base rock and asphalt paving, fine grading, drainage, sewer, and utilities work between August 2011 and January 2012. With five to 25 employees working on the job, depending on the operation — grading, underground work, or paving — the company fielded Caterpillar 966, 14 and 140 graders, Caterpillar 623 paddle wheel scrapers, Caterpillar 330 excavators, and a Caterpillar 573 compactor as well as John Deere 710 backhoes and a Cedar Rapids asphalt paver.
“We specialize in this type of project and the work went very well,” Atlas Vice President and COO Jake Mahoney said, adding that “working with United Construction is always a very smooth and streamlined process.” The NOW Foods plant involves more complex mechanical, electrical and structural components than may be found in other product types. However, said Willcut, “There have been no significant problems encountered to date. All ‘problems’ encountered we're handled proactively with all team members. The collaboration on the project between NOW Foods, United Construction, Heitman Architects, Mike Sullivan, construction manager for the client and president of Peak Construction, and the design-build subcontractors — Jensen Electric, Ray Heating, Desert Fire, which provided fire sprinklers —allowed the project to be designed, permitted, and built in approximately nine months.” The original date for completion of the manufacturing phase was 2014 but a significantly accelerated second phase brought completion about in March 2012. NOW Foods began recruiting for positions toward the end of the second quarter 2012, and when fully operational the plant will employ 100 manufacturing shift workers plus an as yet unannounced number in distribution. About the Companies Since its founding in 1978, United Construction has successfully completed numerous projects of similar scope and size to this one, including the approximately 460,000 sq ft Urban Outfitters Internet Fulfillment Center in Reno, Nev. Construction on this facility was finished in February 2012 and the center's material handling equipment testing and commissioning are currently being completed. In addition, United Construction is constructing a light manufacturing facility in Napa, CA, with an expected completion date in November 2012, as well as several interior build out and renovation projects currently under way, including four for the Washoe County School District.

Future of Peoria Headquarters By David Mercer ASSOCIATED PRESS
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Caterpillar Inc. announced June 25 that it plans to spend the next several months studying ways to modernize its 45-year-old headquarters in Peoria. The study will focus on the company’s long-term needs, including its building and technology, and while there are no plans yet to add to or subtract from Caterpillar’s Peoria presence, “all options are open,” spokesman Rusty Dunn said. “This thing was built in 1967,” Dunn said, referring to the headquarters just off the Illinois River in downtown Peoria. “What Caterpillar was in 1967 is much, much different than what we are today and where we think we’re headed.” Caterpillar, a Fortune 500 company, is the world’s largest maker of construction and mining equipment and has factories all over the world. But it’s also the Peoria area’s largest employer, including about 3,200 jobs in the downtown headquarters and nearby offices. Local elected officials and the United Auto Workers union, which represents some of Peoria-area Caterpillar employees, did not return calls seeking comment. Caterpillar has been among the sharpest critics of Illinois’ state government and the management of its economy. Last year, CEO Douglas Oberhelman reminded Gov. Pat Quinn that the company has out-of-state suitors to prompt the governor to work on improving the state’s economy. Oberhelman later said he wasn’t threatening to leave Illinois. Earlier this year Caterpillar chose a site in Georgia over several sites in Illinois, including Peoria and Galesburg, and other states to relocate the operations of a Japanese tractorand excavator-building plant that will employ 1,400 people. The company cited, among other things, concerns about Illinois’ economy and a massive state government budget deficit. When the headquarters building was built, almost all of Caterpillar’s $1.4 billion in sales were made in the United States, Dunn said. Last year, the company had $60.1 billion in revenue — more than half of it generated outside the country — and Dunn pointed out that Caterpillar has divisional headquarters in Wisconsin, California, Geneva, Switzerland and elsewhere. “This study’s going to evaluate, one, the physical bricks and mortar requirements,” Dunn said. “It will also focus on the technological and the organizational needs of the company — what they are today versus what they need to be 15, 20, 40 years from now.” The company plans to spend three to five months on the study and, when finished, present options to its board of directors and give the public a look at least parts of it, Dunn said. Caterpillar is already working on a new visitors center in downtown Peoria that it plans to open in October.

Power & Performance...
WAUKESHA-PEARCE INDUSTRIES, INC.
Cat Brings Fuel Efficiency to 100-Ton Class With New 777G Off-Highway Truck The new Cat 777G off-highway truck introduces performance, production and fuel efficiency in the 100-ton (91t) size class. The 777 was first introduced by Caterpillar in 1977 and has proven to be a workhorse for mining and large earthmoving customers. The 777G replaces the 777F and delivers greater levels of production and fuel efficiency as well as enhanced safety, operator comfort and service convenience, according to the manufacturer. The 777G achieves greater production with seven percent more torque powering work and new transmission controls that produce quick haul cycles with automotive quality shifting. The production increases are balanced with new fuel saving strategies that include configurable economy settings as well as an adaptive economy mode that automatically optimizes fuel consumption based on the user’s production baseline. Fuel savings also are realized behind the scenes through features such as auto neutral idle and APECS transmission controls where the truck becomes more fuel efficient at idle in a forward gear and when climbing grades. Customers can choose to engage features like engine idle shutdown and speed limiting to further improve fuel savings. In addition to its fuel efficiency, the 777G is quieter and produces fewer emissions. Caterpillar is introducing its U.S. EPA Tier IV Final solution on the 777G two years in advance of the effective date of the regulation, which provides customers an opportunity to advance their sustainability goals. The solution is both simple and robust and includes engine technology combined with diesel oxidation catalysts. It requires the use of ultra low sulfur diesel fuel and low ash engine oil, but requires no additional maintenance or operator input. For operations outside of areas regulated by the U.S. EPA, the 777G reduces emissions with Tier II or EU Stage II equivalent technology and fuel efficiency. Caterpillar has enhanced braking and traction control for G Series. Hydraulic oil-immersed disc brakes are now standard on all four corners of the truck. The system design increases slope holding capability and provides fade resistant, responsive braking performance. Design updates extend brake component life by increasing the force used to disengage the brakes. The optional Cat engine brake can extend service brake life and integrates with automatic retarder control, enabling fast downhill travel and reduced cycle times. The new parking brake system actuates the front brakes as well as the rear for solidly holding the truck on a slope. In addition to brake performance updates, the traction control system on the 777G is now able to differentiate between tire spin and high speed turns so it now can activate at lower speeds. The system now uses the hydraulically applied service brakes for improved response time and modulation from one wheel group to the other. The 777G also features new designs to enhance the safety and comfort of operators and maintenance personnel. The access system is wider, low effort and convenient with new hand rails promoting three points of contact. Inside the cab, the operator experiences 50 percent less sound compared to the previous model. The Cat comfort seat is Series III with
vibration reducing technology and a three point restraint system. It is highly adjustable and promotes all-day comfort as does a new foot rest and automatic temperature control. The left side window is electric, and like the windshield, features laminated glass for safety. Emergency egress is available through the hinged window on the right side. Object detection comes standard on the 777G. Using a combination of radars, an in-cab display and multiple cameras, object detection provides equipment operators with enhanced awareness for increased site safety. The 777G also offers tire monitoring through use of payload values from the truck production monitoring system and data such as air temperature and truck speed to calculate the load placed on tires. As tires approach their rated load-speed rating, a warning is given and customers can choose a course of action, including slowing down or reducing payload. Maintenance is quick and convenient with ground level service centers for both electrical connections (located on the front bumper) and fluid fill. The optional fluid fill center provides access to all fluids from one centralized location. It includes a lighted keypad with level indicators giving operators instant information on what needs filling. Additional fluid level monitoring is available to the operator in the cab. Caterpillar is extending its hydraulic oil filter service intervals to 1,000 hours, reducing customer life cycle costs. Next Generation Cat Transmission Controls The 777G introduces the next generation of transmission control strategies from Caterpillar. Advanced productivity electronic control strategy or APECS provides greater productivity at better fuel rates with torque shift management that allows the truck to carry more momentum up grades. Drive train durability profits from next generation electronic clutch pressure control, and APECS further provides outstanding shift quality for a smooth ride. Tier IV Final Emission Controls Transparent to Operator New emission control strategies enable the Cat C32 engine to meet Tier IV Final emissions regulations in the USA and Canada. The strategy includes the Cat NOx reduction system and two diesel oxidation catalyst canisters, one for each bank of cylinders in the “V” configured C32. Working in combination with ACERT, the Cat NOx-reduction system diverts a small volume of cooled engine exhaust back to the combustion chamber. The result is reduced cylinder temperatures and reduced NOx formation. This NOx reduction system takes full advantage of the cleaner, less corrosive properties of ultra low sulfur diesel fuel and low ash engine oils to maintain service intervals and component life. The two diesel oxidation catalyst canisters trap residual hydrocarbons in the exhaust. This 777G Tier IV Final strategy is transparent to the operator and does not require additional service for the machine. For more information, visit www.cat.com.

$745M in Transportation Funding Will Drive Economic Growth The California Transportation Commission allocated $745 million Aug. 22 in new funding to 118 transportation projects that will provide congestion relief for motorists statewide and bolster the state’s economy. “We’re providing much-needed jobs and putting people to work building better roads, bridges, rail, and transit for California,” said Caltrans director Malcolm Dougherty. The allocations include nearly $82 million from Proposition 1B, a transportation bond approved by voters in 2006. In total, nearly
$14 billion in Proposition 1B funds have been distributed statewide. The remaining $663 million in allocations today came from assorted transportation accounts funded by state and federal dollars. Highlights of the funding allocations include: • Placer County — $245,000 was awarded to the City of Rocklin for landscaping improvements by planting additional trees near Sierra College Boulevard and Interstate 80 to increase the visual impact at this interchange.
• Butte County — $7.92 million from the State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP) to rehabilitate 18.8 lane mi. (30.3 km) of State Highway 70 near Oroville from Palermo Drive to the Garden Drive Overcrossing to improve ride quality, prevent further deterioration of road surface, minimize the costly roadway repairs and extend the pavement life. • Nevada County — $5.8 million from the State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP) to rehabilitate 20.8 lane mi. (33.5 km) of State Highway 20 near Grass Valley and Nevada City from Route
20/49 to Junction 49 at Uren Street to improve ride quality, prevent further deterioration of road surface, minimize the costly roadway repairs and extend the pavement life. • Nevada County — $3.9 million from the State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP) to rehabilitate 12 lane mi. (19.3 km) of State Highway 20 near Grass Valley and Nevada City from Indian Springs Road to the Junction of Route 49 to improve ride quality, prevent further deterioration of road surface, minimize the costly roadway repairs and extend the pavement life.
Chester Pavement Restoration Project Caltrans District 3 Begins, Features ‘Hot Mix Asphalt’ Awards Scholarships Caltrans and contractor Hat Creek Construction saw construction on the Chester Pavement Restoration Project begin in mid-August. The $3 million project will restore pavement on State Route (SR) 36 in Plumas County, from the overflow drainage canal through Chester, to the causeway across Lake Almanor. Construction completion is expected in November 2012.
The project will consist of a “Cold in Place Recycle Process” which takes existing pavement and reuses it as part of the base material prior to paving. The recycling process saves cost that would typically occur from grinding the existing pavement and disposing of the material as waste. The new recycled material becomes the new base material for placing the
new “Hot Mix Asphalt,” adding additional structural section to the roadway. This new structural section will last longer and require less maintenance in future years. During construction, residents and travelers can expect slight delays. Businesses will remain open and will have accessibility during construction.
Improvements to Shasta Dam Blvd. Near Completion, Improve Safety Caltrans, the City of Shasta Lake, and contractor Darren Taylor Construction continue work on the final phase of the State Route (SR) 151 (Shasta Dam Blvd.) project in the City of Shasta Lake, including the area of Shasta Way. The improvements to SR 151 include an added raised pedestrian refuge island, which restricts the left
turns from Shasta Way. The changes will improve safety for pedestrians crossing the intersection and calm or slow traffic in the area. Completion of this project also includes an additional raised pedestrian refuge island just west of the Mussel Shoals and Grand Coulee Blvd, intersection and additional lighting within the project limits.
With the start of the new school year, Caltrans and the City of Shasta Lake remind everyone traveling on SR 151 near the Shasta Way intersection, and to Grand Oaks Elementary School, to become familiar with the changes. Please remember to slow down in construction zones and watch for pedestrians in designated crosswalks.
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) awarded two transportation scholarships today. The two soon to be college freshmen will both be seeking an education in the civil engineering field. Kristina Mai, a recent high school graduate from Folsom and Austin Lemire-Baeten, a recent high school graduate from Galt, are the 2012 Caltrans District 3 Transportation Scholarship Recipients. The $500 scholarships are jointly funded by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 3 employees, the California Transportation Foundation and Professional Engineers in California Government. Mai, a recent honors graduate from Liberty Ranch High School in Galt, will be pursuing a career in civil engineering
at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in the fall. In addition to maintaining a 4. 4 grade point average, Mai has volunteered in community service work. Lemire-Baeten, a recent honors graduate from Vista Del Lago High School in Folsom, will be pursuing a career in civil engineering this fall at University of California Davis. Lemire-Baetin maintains 4.227 grade point average and finds time to volunteer in organizations such as “Big Brothers Big Sisters” and “Habitat for Humanity”. “We are pleased to give these scholarships to very well rounded and deserving young people with a dream of pursuing a career in transportation,” said District 3 Director Jody Jones. District 3 staff presented the checks to Mai and LemireBaeten during an award ceremony, followed by a luncheon in Marysville.

Project Uncovers Old Tracks Construction Materials Costs TRACKS from page 1
Society and another company, Historic Research Associates, to determine whether tracks thought to be located at four other intersections can be removed. “The state has to have a finding of no historical significance before they will allow us to remove tracks,” Vinson said. “I’m working on the scheduling of that now.” Vinson said downtown street work will include possibly uncovering and removing tracks at Court and High streets NE, and at Church and State streets. There also are lines under Cottage Street and Winter Street at State Street. The tracks were part of an “electric interurban railway” that ran not just between the cities but between the centers of the cities, like trolleys or streetcars. Traditional railroads may have originally been located only on the outskirts of town, as was the original Union Pacific line along 12th Street in Salem. Oregon Electric trains began operating between Portland and Salem in 1908. Service between Salem and Eugene was added a year or so later. Salem historian Virginia Green said the tracks uncovered on High Street were used for service between Salem and Eugene. At
its peak, the trains made 35 daily trips to Portland. Tickets were 25 cents each for the hour-and-half ride. The railway had a terminus at the Hubbard Building at High and State streets. Passengers traveling from Eugene to Portland had to transfer to another train at that location. Oregon Electric trains provided service to Salem until the early 1930s as the Great Depression and the growing use of automobiles took a toll on the railroad industry. The Oregon Electric’s 122-mi. Willamette Valley route was Oregon’s longest electric interurban railway, and many of its trains served Portland suburbs. The Oregon Electric Railway was built as a subsidiary of the Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway. Rather than steam, their engines were powered by electricity from an overhead wire — a relatively new way of powering locomotives at the time A dozen trains a day catered to commuters, students, and shoppers in Hillsboro, Forest Grove, Beaverton, Wilsonville and Tualatin. On weekends, reduced-fare excursions operated between Portland and Salem. Four to five trains ran through to Eugene each day.
Drop Third Consecutive Month PRICES from page 1
contractors such as diesel fuel — decreased 0.7 percent in July and 0.6 percent from a year earlier, Simonson noted. The yearover-year decline was the first since November 2009, he added. Simonson observed that falling prices for several key construction materials produced the latest monthly and year-to-year decreases. The price index for steel mill products tumbled 2.8 percent in July and 5.9 percent from a year ago. The index for diesel fuel fell 0.2 percent in July and 9.3 percent over 12 months. The index for copper and brass mill shapes rose 0.5 percent for the month, but plunged 16 percent since July 2011. Aluminum mill products dropped in price by 1.3 percent over the month and 9.4 percent over 12 months. A few materials posted substantial increases for the month and year, Simonson added. The index for gypsum products increased by 1.4 percent in June and 16 percent compared with June 2012, while the index for insulation materials climbed by 3.5 percent and 8.0 percent, respectively. The price indexes for finished nonresi-
dential buildings, which measure what contractors estimate they would charge to put up new structures, rose modestly both for the month and year-over-year, Simonson noted. The index for new industrial buildings posted a rise of 0.1 percent in July and 1.9 percent over 12 months. The index for new office construction also rose 0.1 percent for the month and climbed 2.5 percent for the year. The index for new school construction was up 0.2 percent in July and 3.5 percent from a year ago. The price for new warehouse construction rose 0.5 percent for the month and 3.5 percent from June 2012. Association officials called on Congressional leaders to complete action on long-delayed measures to invest in aging infrastructure like clean water systems. “Delaying infrastructure repairs will punish taxpayers and undermine economic growth,” said Stephen E. Sandherr, the association’s chief executive officer. “Putting off needed rehabilitation and replacement of worn-out structures will only force taxpayers to pay more for the same amount of work.”

Earthquake Empowers NZ City to Redefine Its Legacy By Nick Perry ASSOCIATED PRESS
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) A convention center, sports stadium and performing arts complex are among the big projects planned for a new-look downtown Christchurch after the New Zealand city was reduced to rubble by an earthquake last year. Essentially given a blank slate, government planners on July 30 unveiled a blueprint for the city that replaces office towers with green spaces, urban apartments and innovation “hubs” they say will give the city the feel of a college campus. Under the plan, the city will be smaller, the buildings lower in height and constructed to higher earthquake standards. The plan has been eagerly awaited. It has been nearly 18 months since the magnitude6.1 quake struck, killing 185 people and irreparably damaging 1,400 downtown buildings including the century-old Anglican cathedral in the city center. “It will be safe, modern, green and will leave a legacy that makes Christchurch one of the best places in the world to live and work for many generations to come,” Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker said in a statement.
Many residents have become frustrated at the slow pace of recovery in Christchurch. Hundreds of substantial aftershocks have hampered progress and made insurers skittish, while government and city officials, including Parker, have been accused of dithering and bickering. Even before the plan was released, some wondered if they would end up footing a chunk of the bill through rate hikes. Yet for many, the plan is a welcome step forward. Some see it as a unique chance to correct problems in the city, such as an excess of older-style office space that was evident even before the earthquake. The plan also comes as the aftershocks appear to be finally abating. Government officials have not yet identified an overall cost for the rebuild or specific funding sources for all the new projects. Nick Bryant, a spokesman of earthquake recovery minister Gerry Brownlee, said July 30 that the funding will come from a variety of sources, including local councils, private investors, insurance payouts and from the central government, which has so far set aside $4.4 billion for the recovery efforts.
Under the plan, the city would be bordered with green spaces and the overall design would give more emphasis to the
The city would be broken into a series of hubs featuring related activities. For instance, there would be a health precinct anchored by a hospital, a justice precinct with courts and a police station, and a retail precinct with stores. The plan identifies sites for big infrastructure projects including a prominent library and a convention center with the capacity to hold 2,000 people that would overlook the river. There would also be a covered sports stadium seating up to 35,000 people built in the city’s southeast and an indoor aquatic and recreation center built in the southwest. In a release, New Zealand Prime Minister John Key, who grew up in Christchurch, said it was important to identify sites for the major new projects so that private developers could begin planning hotels, restaurants and stores to complement them. “I am delighted to see this plan for new development and to know that construction will soon be under way to rebuild my old hometown,” he said.
Under the plan, the city will be smaller, the buildings lower in height and constructed to higher earthquake standards.
winding Avon River. An earthquake memorial would be given prominence, as would a Maori cultural center. The central city square would be divided into a number of smaller public gathering spots.

Pages 39-47 Hopper capacity for the series is 14.4 tons (13.1 t), giving the paver a practical production rate of 820 tons (744 t) per hour.
Volvo PF6110 Adds Global Technology to Boost Performance Paving performance is increased with global technology utilized in the Volvo PF6110 tracked paver, according to the manufacturer. The auger system on the PF6110 is independent of the conveyor system. Each of the two auger and conveyor drives uses sonic sensors for more precise handling of material. The conveyor system has chains that are automatically tensioned for proper performance and less downtime. The conveyor chain cover cleans itself, providing easier maintenance. Reversible augers and conveyors are available as optional equipment. Hopper capacity for the series is 14.4 tons (13.1 t), giving the paver a practical production rate of 820 tons (744 t) per hour. A 205 hp (153 kW) Cummins Tier III engine powers the PF6110 paver. The PF6110 has a paving speed of 246 ft. per minute (74.9 m per minute) and a travel speed of 10 mph
(16.1 kmh). The paver includes a 30-kW (37.5 kVa) generator with four 110-volt outlets. The operator station features a new layout and a digital display. The display provides the operator with onboard diagnostic capabilities in four languages. The PF6110 has dual control stations. Both control consoles rotate and can pivot at two points for comfort and each seat may be extended beyond the edge of the machine for improved visibility. A technically advanced, hydrostatic direct-traction drive system on the paver eliminates 70 percent of all mechanical drivetrain components to reduce maintenance costs. The continuous and flexible rubber tracks on the PF6110 have larger, oscillating bogies that provide optimal ground contact and traction. A Blaw-Kote release agent spray system is integrated into the machine, with a push-button operation, to keep the tracks clean and provide easier maintenance.
The PF6110 paver has a screed width of 10 ft. (3 m) and a maximum paving width of 26 ft. (7.92 m). Volvo offers a wide selection of screeds, including the Omni Series. The Omni 318 is a vibratory, power extendible screed designed with front-mounted extensions. The Omni 300 is a fixed screed and the Omni 306 is configured with strike-offs. Screeds with rear-mounted extensions also are being introduced and include the Omni 1000, a vibratory screed; the Omni 1010, a vibratory/single-tamping screed and the Omni 1020, a vibratory/dual-tamping screed. Maximum screed temperature control is achieved through three electric, independent heating circuits. Each section has three heater bars to provide consistent heat for the entire screed surface. These bars are accessible without removing the screed plates for quick maintenance. For more information, call 828/650-2000 or visit www.volvo.com.

Bergkamp’s Convenient M210 Lengthens Pavement Life Bergkamp Inc., based in Salina, Kan., offers the M210 truck-mounted slurry seal and micro surfacing paver to deliver an efficient method of preventive maintenance for highways, roads and parking lots — which can extend the life of pavement by up to seven or more years. Slurry seal and micro surfacing is a mixture of aggregate, asphalt emulsion, water and additives that is applied over existing pavement as one smooth layer. The truck-mounted M210 can carry 10.5 cu. yd. (8.0 cu m) of aggregate in a level struck load, 600 gal. (2,271 L) of asphalt emulsion and 600 gal. of water. It features a 65-gal. (246 L) stainless steel additive tank. The pugmill, conveyor and all liquid material tanks are removable for easy cleaning. All tanks are bolted in rather than welded, adding extra durability and improving ease of maintenance. The asphalt emulsion and water tanks are separate components, eliminating possible rust-through and contamination of products. The M210 has convenient control locations and good operator visibility. The unit is powered by an onboard 99-hp (74 kW) Cummins diesel engine located at the front of the unit in an enclosed engine compartment that reduces noise for the driver and crew. It provides flexibility to better manage legal load weight restrictions by adding up to
three tag axles, including one behind the drive axle — which increases the wheelbase and helps meet the Federal bridge law, according to the manufacturer. Aggregate is delivered to the pugmill by a belt-over-chain conveyor to eliminate slippage. Steep hopper walls minimize bridging, while the hopper’s polyethylene lining reduces friction. This eliminates the need for a vibrator, which decreases problems with
loose bolts and damage to welds and components. The asphalt emulsion ratio is regulated as it is pumped by the large 3-in. (7.6 cm) gear pump into the pugmill — where they are mixed with the aggregate. The variable speed, dual-shaft, multi-paddle pugmill has a dual hydraulic drive, which provides even mixture and coating of the aggregate. The M210 has a full-width working platform that allows operators to easily see both
sides of the unit, the spreader box and the material being placed. In addition, a remote sideshift control lets the spreader box operator control the box from the ground. The M210 is part of Bergkamp’s M2 Series of truck-mounted slurry seal and micro surfacing pavers, which also includes the M206, M208 and M212. For more information, call 785/825-1375 or visit www.bergkampinc.com.

Bomag Economizer Soil Stiffness Indicator Removes Guesswork Designed to deliver higher operating efficiency for midsize and heavy reversible plate compactors, Bomag’s Economizer feature provides real-time soil stiffness results. The new technology saves time and money by helping operators avoid making an unnecessary number of passes to complete compaction projects, according to the manufacturer. Whereas standard compactors rely on spot-checking with quality control devices to achieve proper material densities, the Economizer uses an acceleration sensor to measure the stiffness of the target material across the entire compacted area. The data gathered by the sensor is instantly displayed via a simple series of ten yellow LED lights, allowing the operator to react quickly and effectively to changing soil conditions. The number of illuminated lights on the LED display increases until the optimal level of compaction is achieved. The easy-to-read indicator also provides warnings against over-compaction, soft spots and low working frequency. The display is located in direct view of the operator and can be seen clearly even in strong sunlight. Additionally, the display is well protected from potential job site damage while still providing quick access for easy maintenance. The Economizer comes standard on Bomag’s 1,570-lb. (712 kg) BPR100/80D reversible plate compactor, which delivers 22,481 lbs. of centrifugal force. It is available as an option on the BPR70/70D, BPR55/65D and BP45/55D The Economizer uses an acceleration sensor to measure the stiffness of the target material across the entire models. compacted area.
