Tourists visiting Alaska know the town of Ketchikan as one of the first northbound stops along the Inside Passage cruise route. Ketchikan is also the transportation hub and government center for the southern part of the Alaska Panhandle. Whereas the must-see area for out-of-town visitors is historic Creek Street, where old wooden shops overlook the salmon-laden creek, locals spend much of their time traveling the main traffic corridor through town, Tongass Avenue, which becomes Tongass Highway to the north and south. The Tongass Avenue Viaduct, constructed in the 1950s, is in the midst of receiving muchneeded improvements. In February, contractor SECON began the second phase of work to rehabilitate approximately 1,000 ft. (305 m), 23 spans, of the viaduct, which sees average daily traffic of 17,700 vehicles. The scope of the $7.5-million, federallyfunded project involves repairing and rehabilitating spalled and delaminated concrete on both the superstructure and substructure of the viaduct. In addition, long-term corrosion prevention will be installed in the form of cathodic protection systems, including metalized zinc on the

After concrete repair areas are identified and prepared for patching, workers pump grout into the formwork underneath the bridge deck as the final repair. Grout is pumped into the forms until the grout is forced up and through the drilled vent holes located on the bridge surface. After the grout has cured for three days, the patch is sounded for delaminated concrete and air voids.

underside of deck panels and deck beams, prefabricated zinc jacket systems on existing piles and selected pile caps, and zinc ingot anodes on piles below the tidewater level. “There are many areas of delaminated concrete and corrosion of the reinforcing steel in the substructure and bridge deck that require reconstruction and repair to avoid load limiting of the structure,” said Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities Chief Communications Officer, Roger Wetherell, in

an email. According to Wetherell, major equipment used for this project consists of the work platform and enclosure, negative air and heating see VIADUCTpage 8

Spending and Its Effect on Proposed Interstate Highway Construction Would Link Cities in Western U.S.

By Giles Lambertson

PHOENIX (AP) It may not be a reality for many years, if ever. But the idea of building a new interstate highway to span some of the West’s wide open spaces appears to be gaining some traction, at least in the region. Interstate 11, a designation suggested by supporters of the proposed new route, would link the Phoenix area in south-central Arizona with Las Vegas in southern Nevada. And more ambitiously, it could extend southward to the Arizona U.S.-Mexico bor-

An enduring story of the current recession has been the nation’s construction swoon, which has industry leaders and government officials alike in a daze about how to correct a grievous loss of construction jobs. With the industry’s jobless rate hovering around 17 percent and no instrument in sight to lower it, it’s little wonder that two-thirds of surveyed industry leaders believe the dilemma will continue at least another year.

der and north through Nevada into Oregon to connect with existing routes to Portland and Seattle. Much of it would involve improvements to existing highways such as U.S. Highway 93 between Kingman, Ariz. and Las Vegas, but significant new construction also would be required. The idea has been battered around for years but recently is drawing more interest, particusee HIGHWAY page 6

Proposed Interstate 11 Would Link Western Cities, Mexico HIGHWAY from page 1

larly in Arizona and Nevada. It’s being touted as an economic development tool and a way to help cope with the possibility of additional truck and rail traffic that would be funneled onto U.S. routes from a proposed new Pacific Ocean port, Punta Colonet, in northwest Mexico. But even if Punta Colonet isn’t built, there's still a need for I-11 because existing highways are already congested, said Bob Hazlett, a planning engineer of the Maricopa Association of Governments, an Arizona planning entity for Phoenix-area local governments. “We think it’s needed with or without Punta Colonet. We just think that Punta Colonet is going to add to the equation,” Hazlett said. “If we’re not moving commercial vehicles, if we're not moving freight, then we’re not creating jobs [and] we’re not moving our economy forward.” A Nevada legislative committee recently approved a resolution calling for creation of an Interstate 11 from Mexico to Canada, including portions in Nevada that would incorporate portions of existing U.S.

Highways 93 and 95. The new route could help Nevada become a distribution and manufacturing hub for the West, the resolution said. Meanwhile, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is talking up the Interstate 11 idea, calling it an “exciting corridor ripe with opportunity.” But the reality is there's no money identified, at least for now, to pay for a project with a pricetag that Hazlett said “absolutely” would be in the billions of dollars. Federal funding is being eyed but there's also talk of public-private partnerships, such as toll road projects. Back when the interstate system was designed in the 1950s, its planners “were more interested in getting people to California,” not connecting the region's inland cities, Hazlett said. But there's a need for more capacity because of the dramatic growth of Phoenix and Las Vegas, he said. “This is a very, very long-term concept,” acknowledged John McGee, a top planning official of the Arizona Department of Transportation. “But we believe this ... is worth pursuing.''

Contractor personnel drill vent holes through the Tongass Avenue bridge deck prior to pumping grout into the concrete repair forms. The repair forms are located on the bottom side of the bridge deck and are not visible. Vent holes are drilled on an approximate 2 ft. by 2 ft. (.6 m by .6 m) pattern and are necessary to allow the escapement of trapped air and to ensure the entire void within the formwork is filled with grout. VIADUCT from page 1

systems, sand blasting and containment equipment, and arc-spray metalizing equipment. As of early September, nine spans of the viaduct had been rehabilitated, leaving the remaining 14 to be completed by the scheduled end date of mid-March. Thus far, the primary challenge has been scheduling work around the tides, said Wetherell. This is the final phase of rehabilitation planned for the Tongass Avenue Viaduct. Future improvements will involve the outright replacement of existing viaduct sections wherever practicable. SECON is currently working on additional Tongass roadway improvements, to the

north and south of the Tongass Avenue Viaduct, for the Alaska DOT and PF: a $1.3 million job, awarded in January, to replace aging guardrails on South Tongass Highway; and a $8.7 million contract, awarded in April, to reconstruct approximately two miles of North Tongass Highway. Juneau-based SECON is a grading, paving, drainage, water and sewer contractor and a subsidiary of Colaska, which was formed in 1999 when French transportation construction giant, Colas SA, bought SECON. Other Colaska subsidiaries include Exclusive Paving, a heavy civil, utility, and highway construction firm in Fairbanks, and AGGPRO, providing concrete and aggregate in Juneau and Anchorage.

Scott-Macon Equipment, a crane and lifting equipment rental and distribution company, recently completed construction of a new service center at its headquarters in Houston, Texas. At a ribbon cutting ceremony, Allan Woodruff, senior vice president, said, “Our new service center continues a planned expansion of our operations to meet the needs of our customers in the Gulf Coast.” The new service center consists of 17,500 sq. ft. of service area under roof and features 12 bays to service cranes and other lifting equipment as well as a rear bay to service large crawler cranes and an additional 12 canopied work areas. The facility was designed by Houston-based Jack Rimes and Associates, Inc. and constructed by Houston-based Superior Building Systems. Additional site work was completed by Houston-based Big M Constructors Inc. In addition to Woodruff, Scott-Macon’s project team included Bob Dimmitt, executive vice president, Mike Petrey, vice president and Brad Thompson, assistant vice president of product support. At the ceremony, Alfred L. Scott, founder, thanked all of the companies involved in the construction and noted that “their close working relationship with our project team and attention to detail enabled the service center to be constructed on time and on budget.” He went on to comment that “the facility reflects the company’s continued growth and its 37 year commitment to providing the highest level of product support to our cus-

Terex CEO Reaffirms Commitment toOklahoma City Facility Terex Roadbuilding hosted two high-profile visitors at its Oklahoma City manufacturing facility in August. Terex Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Ron DeFeo made a visit to Oklahoma City to meet with team members and see first-hand the improvements made to the company’s manufacturing facility and customer support programs. Sen. Jim Inhofe, (R-Okla.) and ranking member on the United States Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, also visited the facility to see the operations and discuss the future of highway project funding. DeFeo conveyed to team members the strong commitment Terex has to the Oklahoma City facility. “We are investing money in Oklahoma City,” DeFeo said. “That’s why we brought more equipment production here,” referring to the recent transfer of paving and crushing equipment manufacturing from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to Oklahoma City. DeFeo further explained why Terex remains strongly committed to growing and investing in the Oklahoma City facility, which is home to the production of asphalt, concrete and crushing equipment. “This location meets all the criteria Terex wants in a manufacturing facility,” DeFeo said. He cited specifically Oklahoma City’s modern facility with room for expansion, central location for the United States market, and talented and dedicated workforce. DeFeo’s enthusiasm for the future of Roadbuilding’s business was tempered only by the failure of Congress to pass a long-term comprehensive surface transportation bill. “Our future and more specifically this facility’s future depends on passage of a multi-year highway bill,” he said. He also urged Terex Roadbuilding team members to contact their members of Congress regarding this critical legislation. On Aug. 24, 2010, Terex hosted Senator Jim Inhofe at its Oklahoma City facility. In a meeting held between company executives and Inhofe, Don Anderson, general manager of Terex Roadbuilding, addressed the manufacturing facility’s close ties with infrastructure rebuilding and the Highway Bill. “We have seen our opportunities grow substantially outside of the United States, while the domestic market continues to languish without a comprehensive, multi-year highway bill,” Anderson told Inhofe. “The Stimulus provided a shot in the arm for our customers, which is good, but the manufacturers saw little economic benefit tied directly to the legislation.” As chairman of the environment and public works committee in 2005, Inhofe authored the SAFETEA-LU (Safe Sen. Jim Inhofe (L) and Don Anderson both visited Terex’s Oklahoma facility.

The Senator has led efforts for reauthorization of the Highway Bill and for a long-term extension while the new bill is written. “Even as the number-one-ranked conservative in the Senate, I’ve worked closely with Senator [Barbara] Boxer, [(D) California], in a bi-partisan way to get highway funding,” Inhofe explained. “Congress has a responsibility to the American people for infrastructure development, construction and maintenance.” Later, Inhofe addressed a room full of Terex team members about his record in the Senate and his work to promote infrastructure spending. He shared concerns that roughly a mere four percent of Stimulus spending went to transportation-related projects, and he acknowledged just how important reauthorizing the Highway

Bill is to manufacturers like Terex. “If you don’t have a highway bill, you are in serious trouble,” he said. Inhofe left the team on a note of optimism. “I’m going to do everything that I can to get a [multi-year] highway bill,” he said.

Bejac Corporation Becomes Sennebogen Dealer for California Servicing niche markets with carefully chosen product lines has been a specialty for Bejac Corporation. As of April, the company has added Sennebogen’s green line of purpose-built material handlers to its machinery offerings. Constantino Lannes, president of Sennebogen North America, recently announced that Bejac Corporation has been appointed as the newest addition to the company’s growing distributor network for Sennebogen. Bejac Corporation, headquartered in Placentia, Calif., will represent Sennebogen products for the state of California from its five branches serving in San Diego, Los Angeles, Inland Empire, Sacramento, Redding and the Oakland Bay area. Since the 1980s, Bejac has built its success by partnering with reputable manufacturers to offer sales, rental and service for a wide variety of construction and niche markets, choosing suppliers that focus on one product line to build an equipment mix that maximizes opportunities for its customers. “We have predominantly a single brand affiliation with most of our manufacturers,” explained Company President Ron Barlet. “What we try to do is strategically pick and choose single product lines from the best manufacturers and then match these together to support customers in the markets we serve.” With its fleet of excavators, wheel loaders, compactors, air compressors, demolition tools, forestry and logging equipment, and machine fed chippers and grinders, Bejac serves a wide variety of customers and applications that exclude it from being labeled as a traditional “dirt house.” A Perfect Fit In this regard, Sennebogen has provided the perfect fit with its purpose-built machines designed specifically for such applications. “Most manufacturers convert existing machines to a certain application, but for us to be successful in offering the services that we want to provide, it’s obviously easier to

layout is for servicing, how the engine is mounted and by how well it is put together,” he said, adding the lack of a dependence on computers and electronics adds to their simplicity. “This is going to be a huge selling factor. In the extreme environments these machines will be working in, simpler is much better.”

Constantino Lannes (5th from L) welcomes Ron Barlet and his crew from Bejac Corporation to the Sennebogen family.

take a purpose-built machine that already has the features specific to the task and has proven itself rather than try to modify something that is less than perfect for the application.” Combined with the latest Tier III engines and the unique hydraulic requirements for material handling, the Sennebogen green line offers greater fuel efficiencies, which is an added benefit of having a purpose-built unit. “California has the most stringent air quality rules, so the Tier III engine is really an important factor here because companies are upgrading their fleets and trying to get to stay compliant. From a sales perspective, the fuel efficiency of the Tier III engine along with the efficient use of hydraulics is a tremendous benefit over the competition,” said Barlet. Bejac first initiated its relationship with Sennebogen after it found itself bidding against the company. “After losing a couple of deals, we decided to find a company that had the right complement of machines, both track and rubber tired machines. That’s when we started looking at the top three manufacturers. Several of my dealer acquaintances across the country are Sennebogen dealers and they gave the

company very high marks. We found that there isn’t an application that we serve that Sennebogen won’t fit into. That was part of the reason for seeking them. We are currently present in many of those segments,” said Barlet. He confirmed that this was in keeping with his overall strategy. “We looked at our customer base and looked at what Sennebogen offered that would allow us to expand… it was a perfect fit. It’s easy to go to customers that you are already selling a few machines to every year and add one more item to the basket. While there will be many new customer opportunities, there is minimal pioneering to do from our perspective because we are already familiar with these markets.” Barlet said marketing the new line will not be difficult as Sennebogen has already carved out an excellent reputation. “There is positive familiarity with the product because Sennebogen has done an excellent job promoting their brand and I think there is enough name recognition that it will make our sales efforts that much easier,” he said. From a service standpoint, Barlet said the company’s service technicians are amazed by how simple these machines are. “They are impressed by how clean the

Pushing Accessibility As a dealer, Bejac is very careful to align itself with manufacturers who can ensure the back-up support it needs to provide the highest level of service to its customers and Barlet said this hinges on having an open line of communication, something that has already been established with Sennebogen. “What I saw in Sennebogen that I particularly liked is what I like to see in all of the manufacturers we deal with… that is having a relationship when we have questions that need answers, we can get right to the decision-makers,” he explained. “In these niche markets, you have to be extremely responsive. These are expensive machines that are typically front line units that can shut complete operations down if there is a problem so when we need support, communication is critical,” he said, adding that he promotes the same philosophy to his own employees. “We really push accessibility from both our staff and our customers and with Sennebogen, they have already proven that this is their business model as well.” While Bejac employees are eager to participate in Sennebogen’s dealer training program for both sales and service, Barlet said they are equally eager to get these machines in front of their customers. “Since we are servicing specialty markets and because the product really fits into these niches, it gives us another opportunity to go out and market to the people we are already interacting with. We are very excited about having a bundle of features from Sennebogen that we can offer our customers. We are ready to go.” For more information, call 704/347-4910 or visit www.sennebogen-na.com.

Spending and Its Effect on Construction Employment SPENDING from page 1

Yet from the crucible of this recession, some painful lessons about job creation may have been learned. There is a fresh conversation about the comparative value of government versus public sector jobs and perhaps a new understanding of “job creation.” Spending and Employment There have been no shortage of efforts to spur construction — and construction hiring — but they have been manifestly unsuccessful. The most prominent was the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The socalled stimulus bill was a $787 billion spending initiative, with approximately $100 billion of that earmarked for construction. The Obama administration and supporters in Congress promoted the bill as a relative quick fix for the industry because emphasis was placed on “shovel-ready jobs.” This referred to projects that already were cleared by the various pre-construction agencies and lacked only funding. What wasn’t funded early was expected to continue to keep contractors cranking up their equipment for years to come. It hasn’t worked as well as hoped. In response to a recent Associated General Contractors survey, only 28 percent of contractors and industry suppliers and distributors said the stimulus was “very or somewhat effective.” Nearly half — 47 percent — said it “neither helped nor hurt” and 11 percent said it had a negative impact. The rest didn’t have an opinion. This lukewarm response to the stimulus within the industry reflects a generally negative view of the overall stimulus among all Americans. This is significant because the perception of middling success or failure of the stimulus makes it less likely that leadership will spend billions more on another one. Consequently, when President Obama this late summer proposed a $50 billion “bold new vision” — notably not called a “stimulus” — for transportation infrastructure including highways, railways and airports, the reaction was muted. Industry associations generally praised the initiative but added that what really was needed was passage of a multi-year successor to the socalled SAFETEA-LU highway bill that expired a year ago and has been extended periodically to keep funds flowing. One prominent dissenter to the president’s proposal was Florida Republican Rep. John Mica, the ranking minority member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. He is the probable committee chairman should the House majority switch to Republican after November’s elections. “I will not support another tax-and-spend proposal while billions of transportation and infrastructure funds sit idle,” Mica said Sept.

7.

“While proposing to spend more on infrastructure in another stimulus effort may sound like the administration is doing something about jobs, in fact only 32 percent of the infrastructure funding approved 18 months ago in the first stimulus has been spent,” he said. “Projects continue to be bogged down by bureaucracy and red tape.” Aless harsh view is that, while many projects are not in progress, most are on the verge of starting. John Horsley of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, which is “highly supportive” of the administration’s new plan, estimated that 90 percent of stimulusfunded transportation projects are under contract. Employment Bang for Bucks What has become apparent in all this conjoining of spending and jobs is that there does not seem to be a strict correlation between money spent and jobs created. Many assertions are made about the linkage, but they are all pretty shaky, except in the abstract. Economists argue that, theoretically, a pool of money of a certain size will create a certain number of jobs. In reality, no such hard-and-fast cause-and-effect relationship seems to exist. The U.S. Department of Commerce has estimated that each $1 million expended on road construction produces 63 jobs — 13 crewmembers at the job site, 13 vendors and 37 in related service industry positions. Interpolating that number, it follows that $1 billion would create 63,000 jobs, more or less. A $50 billion infrastructure spend, therefore, would create more than 3 million jobs, which would be a healthy rebound indeed. Top-end projections aside, the numbers plugged in at the lower end have to be skeptically received. There seems to be no agreement on a formula, which suggests that the root numbers aren’t well founded. The numbers, incidentally, all reflect the consensus that spending on construction results in hiring of work crews, hiring at supporting companies and hiring elsewhere in the economy as a consequence of the expenditure of money by the first two categories of employees. The three categories of benefits are commonly referred to as direct, indirect and induced. Using that premise, a U.S. Department of Transportation study earlier this decade concluded that 47,000 jobs are created by the expenditure of $1 billion. That is 16,000 fewer jobs than the previously mentioned Department of Commerce’s formula would produce but is the number that some presidential candidates relied on in formulating

position papers during the 2008 campaign. However, there are other numbers. An Association of Equipment Manufacturers policy statement declares that 35,000 jobs are created from each $1 billion. Yet posted elsewhere on the AEM Web site is a jobs statement by AEM President Dennis Slater; he cited a DOT study in declaring that 30,000 jobs result from a $1 billion expenditure. Two decades ago, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said a billion dollars would create 24,000 jobs for a year. Last year, Alex Carrick, a Canadian economist, concluded that $1 billion created 20,000 jobs. Dipping slightly lower is the Heritage Foundation think tank; in 2009, it cited another U.S. DOT report in which researchers concluded that a mere 19,500 jobs would arise from expenditure of $1 billion. Ronald Utt of the Heritage Foundation said the widely varying numbers are all misleading because they are based on a false premise. Utt argued in a background paper at the time the stimulus package was being debated that unless the $1 billion “appears out of nowhere as if it were manna from heaven,” the net creation of jobs is closer to zero. That’s because each $1 billion in funding is taken from somewhere else in the economy, thus robbing that area of its funding with a resulting slowdown in work and hiring. When the $1 billion is “new money,” that is, borrowed money, the offsetting loss of jobs elsewhere is merely deferred until payback time. In sum, precisely how much employment results from massive spending packages is not at all clear. Furthermore, it should be noted that none of the formulations stray into the locution of “jobs saved or created,” an Obama administration construct that is almost impossible to prove or disprove. Private Sector Versus Public Jobs Not all jobs are created equal. For example, some make-work construction positions are funded just to get money into the economy, as was the case with the Works Progress Administration of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt era. How far government should tiptoe down that path is the question, for at the far end of the path nothing of real value is created besides a paycheck. Example: Paying someone to dig a hole and then fill it again is in itself not of much lasting value. So the debate among Keynesian economists and their conservative counterparts is partly about how much value should be expected in return for a government wage. The wider dispute is about government jobs versus private sector employment. President Obama said in 2009 that 3 million new jobs would be created through the stimulus bill, “more than 80 percent of them in

the private sector.” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was not impressed. He reportedly responded to the president with a question: “Well, do we really want to create 20 percent of the jobs in the public sector? That would be 600,000 new government jobs.” John Palatiello is president of the Business Coalition for Fair Competition, an organization of businesses, associations and taxpayer groups. The coalition argues that billions of dollars — $27 billion, to be exact — would be saved were designated government employee functions opened to competitive bidding. Palatiello said the best government policy always “recognizes that real economic growth and job creation is in the private sector, and emphasizes that government should not compete with its citizens but should rely on the private sector to the maximum extent possible.” The Obama administration has not been open to this idea. Rather, it has modified guidelines so that more kinds of work can be reserved for government agencies. It probably is no coincidence that, since the inauguration of the current administration, private sector employment has decreased by 3.3 million and government employment has risen by some 34,000, according to the business coalition. Palatiello’s group is leading the charge to reduce the federal payroll through outsourcing of thousands of jobs. Specifically, it has called for the administration to declare a moratorium on government insourcing. In August, Palatiello talked to Daniel Gordon, the administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy. Gordon told him the federal government only insources under three circumstances: 1) When an activity is so inherently governmental in nature that it should not have been contracted out in the first place; 2) When activity is so critical in nature that the agency has no in-house capability to adequately award, manage and oversee the contract; or 3) When a detailed cost analysis has been performed and the agency can unequivocally quantify the savings that would be achieved. Gordon told Palatiello the agency would welcome any examples of jobs insourced in conflict with the guidelines. The first week of September, Palatiello obliged, providing Gordon with 17 examples. In all, the coalition believes that some 850,000 federal employees are doing work that might better be done by private sector employees. The Construction Industry Round Table is a founding member of the coalition and fully supportive of the call to reduce insourcing. Round Table President Mark Casso cited see SPENDING page 30

Komatsu Designs Its PC35MR-3 With Comfort in Mind Komatsu America Corp.’s (KAC) PC35MR-3 compact hydraulic excavator is designed to bring increased production and added operator comfort to contractors in a variety of construction, utility, landscaping and other applications. The PC35MR-3 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 fuel levels 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 PC35MR-3 include: • Operator Comfort For operator comfort, the PC35MR-3 allows easy entry and egress due to the wide entrance and well placed hand holds. A fully adjustable suspension seat with retractable seat belt lessens fatigue, and pilot proportional joystick controls with wrist rests permit continuous, comfortable operation. • Productivity The PC35MR-3 is a member of the minimum swing radius (MR) family of compact excavators. This enables the operator to focus on the work in front and worry less about rear swing impacts in confined areas. The PC35MR-3 accomplishes these tasks while maintaining high lift capacity and stability. The PC35MR-3 has an operating weight of 7,909 lbs. (3,587 kg), and features a maximum dig depth of

11 ft. 4 in. (3.4 m). The standard thumb mounting bracket and auxiliary hydraulics simplify hydraulic thumb installation, enhancing the machine’s capability and versatility. The optional Power Angle (PA) Blade allows the operator to angle the blade 25 degrees to the right or left, increasing the excavator’s productivity; this is especially useful when back-

filling trenches. • Value The PC35MR-3 gets its power from a Komatsu engine with a net power of 28.9 hp (21.5 kW). The direct injection engine meets EPA emissions requirements and is fuel efficient without sacrificing power or efficiency. The X-track frame deters the build-up dirt and debris, saving the operator valuable time when cleaning the machine. The single, large diameter swing pin ensures long life and durability of the boom swing mechanism. •Service and Maintenance To simplify maintenance, Komatsu equipped the PC35MR-3 with numerous features. The operator compartment tilts up for providing access to the hydraulic components and the back of the engine (starter/alternator). The wide opening engine cover and side covers provide outstanding access to daily checkpoints. In addition, the radiator and oil cooler are side by side making them easy to inspect and clean, and it ensures that only the cleanest freshest air reaches each component. Extended greasing and service intervals make it easier to schedule maintenance. For more information, visit www.komatsuamerica.com. The PC35MR-3 has an operating weight of 7,909 lbs. (3,587 kg) and features a maximum dig depth of 11 ft. 4 in. (3.4 m).

Toro Introduces Dingo TX 427 Compact Utility Loader The Toro Company’s latest additions to its Dingo compact utility loader family are the narrow and wide track TX 427 models. Both TX 427 loaders feature a 27-hp (20 kW) Kohler engine that delivers added torque for increased pulling and digging force. These models also come standard with a heavyduty two-stage air cleaner that offers enhanced dust and dirt filtration, even when the engine is working in the harshest environments. TX 427 compact utility loaders are the successors to Toro’s TX 420 and TX 425 models. “We’ve taken the Dingo’s proven tracked, walk-behind design and unmatched hydraulic power to the next level with the TX 427 models,” said Greg Lawrence, marketing product manager of the Toro Dingo compact utility loader family. “We’ve simplified our lineup by offering one model in either narrow or wide track design, beefed it up with a more powerful engine, and increased the power-to-weight ratio for improved job site efficiency.” Featuring four independent hydraulic pumps, TX 427 compact utility loaders deliver 16.9 gal. (64 L) per minute (gpm) of flow to each track, 11.4 gpm (43 Lpm) to the auxiliary hydraulics, and 6 gpm (22.7 Lpm)

to the loader arm. The auxiliary hydraulics on the TX 427 models pump 19 hp (14 kW) flow to the attachment for increased productivity in ground-engaging applications. Both TX 427 units are compatible with Toro’s multitude of compact utility loader attachments — making them well-suited to dig, haul, plant or build almost anything. “Everything our customers love about our Dingo loaders remains the same,” said Lawrence, “including their versatility. From augering, earthmoving, tilling, and trenching

to leveling, lifting, hauling and demolishing – the applications are endless.” Weighing just 2,006 lbs. (910 kg) with a standard bucket, the TX 427 narrow track loader has a rated operating capacity of 535 lbs. (242 kg), 35 percent of tip capacity. Its overall length of 92 in. (233 cm) including bucket and width of 33.7 in. (85 cm) allow it to work in the tightest places and easily pass through a standard 36-in. (91 cm) gate. Also, the 5.9 in. (15 cm) wide tracks on the TX 427 narrow track model distribute a mere 5.1

psi of ground pressure, so operators can get the traction they need without tearing up turf during operation, according to the manufacturer. The TX 427 wide track model weighs 2,186 lbs. (991 kg) with a standard bucket, and it offers the same rated operating capacity as the narrow track model at 535 lbs. (35 percent of tip capacity). With an overall length of 92 in. including bucket, this model’s width is increased to 41 in. (104 cm) to accommodate the wide track set up but is still compact enough to fit through a 42 in. (106 cm) gate. With 3.5 psi ground pressure, this unit offers a light footprint and improved flotation for better traction in sandy or wet ground conditions. “The gas-powered TX 427 offers a high power-to-weight ratio,” said Lawrence. “Competitive models that offer the same horsepower are much heavier machines, which means it takes operators more energy to move the units around the job site and can cause more damage to the ground. Our TX 427 compact loaders offer powerful performance that allows customers to be more productive — getting more done in less time.” For more information contact 800/3448676 or visit www.toro.com/dingo.

The team consists of industry leaders from Germany, Czech Republic, Mexico, Africa, Australia, Kazakhstan, Bulgaria, United Kingdom and Russia. “Plunk is a logical choice for this position” said Kevin Derden, owner, KD Sales and IMC Scrapers, Sherrill, Ark. “His many years of experience in the pull scraper industry as well as his vast knowledge of all sides of this business make him perfect for the job.” “We have literally combined many of the world's greatest players in the earthmoving industry from around the globe to build and market the best product so that we can continually develop and evolve to better serve the customer. We offer a larger product line than any other scraper manufacturer in the world, from a 40 foot wide ag finishing scraper to 25 cubic yard construction scraper, and over 50 current models to choose from in between,” said Plunk. The team is currently creating and implementing new designs into existing IMC scraper models as well as a new line of scraper models based upon the most popular models of Reynolds International, which was closed and broken up in 2009. The end user will begin to see these new product lines and changes in current models immediately, according to Plunk. Procuring many of Reynolds’s old vendors and suppliers has allowed KD Sales to offer OEM Rome and Reynolds scraper parts to customers and past Reynolds dealers who lost the support of the product when the company ceased operations. Many dealers were selling off Reynolds Scraper inventory due to the end of factory support, however Plunk stated that IMC and KD Sales will fully support the Reynolds scraper line. “This is a main reason for introducing new IMC models based on the Reynolds scraper design, but with much needed and past due improvements,” explained Plunk. “If we are going to build all the parts anyway, we might as well produce and offer the most popular scraper models to the public as well.” The entire team is committed to customer service, according to Plunk. “That’s all we have to offer is service. So we are committed to offering the customer satisfaction. We know we can’t please everybody, and we are fully aware that there is no one scraper that can be a perfect fit on every job, but this is why we offer such a variety of scraper models so that we can try to meet the individual customer’s needs, Stephen Plunk has been appointed the head of KD Sales and IMC Scrapers’ new marketing and product development team.

not to just offer him one single product that may, or may not work for him. “We are always ready to listen to the customer; many of our best improvements have come from the field, not the drawing board,” said Plunk. “What looks good on paper or on the computer doesn’t always look good in the dirt.” Plunk has been involved with pull scrapers from the time he was a young boy in the boot heel of Missouri and North Arkansas. He has owned and operated a land grading operation and a golf course construction company and worked

the world's largest tractor and pull scraper rental fleets, with Fleet Equipment of Savannah, Ga., owning and operating more than 100 rental units, with units available for lease across the United States and Latin America. According to company’s Web site, KD Sales was started in 1987 by Francis “Sonny” Derden and his son, Kevin Derden. From a small town in southern Arkansas, Francis and Kevin spent countless hours filling and shipping orders from a two-room warehouse to local and interstate dealers

with some of the largest dirt contractors in the United States as both a grade foreman and a job superintendent. Plunk’s most recent endeavors include being sales manager for a John Deere dealer, a general manager for a Case IH dealership, a top five scraper dealer for what was Reynolds International as well as a top dealer for Miskin Scraper Co. Plunk also co-founded and managed one of

within the scraper community. As time went on, the two entrepreneurs outgrew the warehouse and staff that once was enough for the two of them. As the demand for more business had grown, so had the space and staff available to keep up with the growing business. KD Sales carries wear items for such lines as Reynolds, Harvey, John Deere, Scoopall, Miskin, Cepco, IMC, and other major scraper models. For more information, visit www.kdsales.com/.

Despite Current Economy, Future Job Growth Projected SPENDING from page 16

several areas of commerce where contractors could do the job as well and more costeffectively than government, including environmental clean-up, military base maintenance, civil works — and especially maintenance, repair and construction of roads, waterways and buildings. “Moreover,” Casso said, “any assertion that insourcing saves money has been debunked, by no less that Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who on Aug. 9 admitted, ‘We weren’t seeing the savings we had hoped from insourcing.’” This ongoing dispute with the federal government is separate from long-standing complaints of the construction industry about state jobs. The industry complains that state departments of transportation around the country have employees doing work that the private sector can do as well, including engineering tasks.

Jobs Variables The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 19 percent growth in construction jobs over the next eight years, considerably more than most other major industries. Growth is expected pretty much across the board, including in the heavy and civil construction areas where construction and repair of highways and bridges clearly are needed. The Bureau also predicts a spurt of power transmission line construction. These two areas of building — highways and power lines — illustrate a variable in construction spending. Some kinds of building work obviously are more labor intensive than other kinds. Myrtle Beach, S.C., backers of a proposed Interstate 73 roadway point to a research economist’s estimate of jobs creation. Donald R. Schunk of Coastal Carolina University predicted last year that the proposed new roadway would have some 4,700 construction workers on the job on any given day in the Myrtle Beach region. If figuratively spread across the approximately 80 mi. of the South Carolina segment of I-73, that’s 55 to 60 people working per mile of new roadway. Whereas large-scale power transmission lines require just 14 construction workers per mile of transmission, according to power industry researchers. However, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory estimates that 20,000 mi. of new lines are needed across the United States, particularly if the push for wind turbine-generated electricity in the West requires new lines running to the East Coast. With 14 people working each of

those 20,000 mi., a sizeable number of construction workers would be packing lunches and heading off to the job. Yet lobbyists don’t typically distinguish among different orders of construction labor. They lobby for an entire transportation bill, for example, as opposed to asking for targeted capital investment in bridges or runways or railways. While this probably is a good political approach, it does not address priorities among worthy projects, nor distinguish between needs and wants. The American Society of Civil Engineers has laid a foundation for breaking the overall problem of infrastructure construction into smaller parts, issuing a national grade card that evaluates the condition of individual pieces of infrastructure. Using the 2009 card, one can conclude that bridges, inland waterways, drinking water / wastewater systems, levees and roads are most in need of attention, each receiving a D- from the ASCE. While some other areas fared almost as poorly, they are judged to be in slightly better condition. The result of the grading process is that construction priorities are established. The Round Table’s Casso was asked if lobbying for individual pieces of capital might be more effective in this economic climate. The answer is yes and no. “In truth, the Round Table does not make any precise distinction between and among infrastructure project types,” he responded. “Rather, it focuses on the need for the federal government to target funds and attention to meaningful ‘signature’ projects or programs that can far exceed the mere investment of funds to impact a greater expanse of American society, its economy, and even its security. “These types of ‘major impact projects’ can be beneficial short-term investments and have a lasting high return. As such, they should be the focus of at least a portion of future expenditures managed by the federal government.” Casso’s organization is working on a “white paper” outlining the request to focus on “meaningful transportation projects.” It also will call for reform of grant programs so that obvious areas of highway congestion can be targeted and consistently funded until real correction is achieved. This approach is the opposite of spreading the money around just to be fair to each congressional district and Congress to date has shown little inclination to adopt it.

SECTION Bomag Paver Offers Power, Capacity for Larger Projects Weighing in at more than 22,000 lbs. (9,979 kg), the Bomag BF6615 self-propelled asphalt paver features a 99hp (74 kW) Cummins water-cooled diesel engine that is turbocharged for consistent power at all altitudes. The engine’s ECOMODE feature saves fuel and reduces noise by automatically lowering rpm’s during stops and pauses. At the same time, the load-sensing hydraulic system lowers fuel costs by delivering power only when needed. The new design, UNIMAT 2 full-width floating screed has a standard 8- to 15-ft. (2.4 to 4.5 m) paving width. The screed is electrically heated, eliminating the need to change propane bottles in the middle of a large project. Dual vibrators provide 2,500 vibrations per minute. The 9-ton (8 t) hopper capacity on the BF6615 allows high-production paving to continue between trucks. Even with its power saving system, the new paver can push asphalt feeder trucks while maintaining working speeds. Maximum estimated paving speed is 100 ft. (30.5 m) per minute.

The Bomag BF6615 self-propelled asphalt paver features a 99-hp (74 kW) Cummins water-cooled diesel engine that is turbocharged for consistent power at all altitudes.

The BF6615 also features a crawler style track drive system undercarriage with standard bolt-on polyurethane track pads. Eight sealed rollers per side carry the weight of the machine, while bolt-on rock guards installed on the inside and outside of each track drive prevent asphalt from loading up on the chains. Each of the track drives is bolted to a cross member frame structure and can be removed individually for maintenance. The entire undercarriage structure can be removed as well. The screed on the BF6615 features two abrasion-resistant, extendable, reversible and independent hydraulic augers. Evenly distributing a uniform layer of asphalt across the mat, the two augers

extend with the screed extensions, providing consistent material control at all paving widths and minimizing the need for hand labor, according to the manufacturer. Screed extensions can be adjusted for a 2 in. (5 cm) crown or invert. Screed wear plates are .37 in. (.95 cm) thickness abrasion-resistant 400 Brinell hardened steel. Designed to withstand harsh job-site conditions, screed plates are bolted on for easy replacement. The BF6615 features dual operating positions for control from either side of the paver. The engine is positioned low in the machine, giving the operator outstanding visibility from either side. Engine shroud is standard for heat and noise reduction. Fail-safe brakes also are standard. Both the augers and dual hydraulic slat conveyors offer full automatic control with manual override. This allows the operator to precisely control the amount of material being sent to the screed if paving wider or thicker on one side or the other. Despite its high-production performance, the BF6615 is compact with a transport length of just 15 ft. (4.6 m). Machine height is just 74 in. (188 cm). For simple cleanup, the BF6615 features a hydraulically lifting bed and has all major components located outside the hopper. A standard fume extraction system helps reduce asphalt odor. Other standard equipment includes urethane track pads, a high engine water temperature/low engine oil pressure automatic shutdown, wash down spray system, swivel mounted bumper rollers and power depth adjustment controls for variable mat thickness. Optional equipment includes a swivel-mounted tow-type hydraulic truck hitch, working lights, ditch plates, simple Moba automatic joint matcher and Topcon screed automation system.

Powered by a Cummins QSB-220 Tier III diesel engine operating at 230 hp (171 kW) and 1,800 rpm, the F1000 series also features an integrated Sauer drive system.

Dynapac Introduces Paver Line for North America Market Dynapac’s F1000T tracked and F1000W wheeled 10-ft. (3 m)-wide asphalt pavers have been designed from the road up with the contractor in mind. Designed especially for the North American market with input from dealers and contractors, the F1000 series pavers can handle extreme conditions in remote locations, yet are easy to operate and service, according to the manufacturer. The F1000 series features heavy welded frame construction, dual swing-out operator stations and low deck height. The result is enhanced visibility for the operator, who now has a clear view of the hopper and auger — and a full view of the work area. The .75 in. (1.9 cm) formed hopper wings deliver asphalt to a high-capacity slat conveyor with a wide material tunnel and extra heavy chains and slats. The high-performance outboard auger drive and the conveyor design eliminates the auger chain drive box and means no center line segregation. The conveyor system delivers 600 tons (544 t) per hour of asphalt to either a Carlson EZ III or EZ IV screed to lay mats up to 12 in. (30.5 cm) deep on new placements, and thin overlays on rehabilitation projects. To complement the rugged design of the pavers, a dual computer system and reliable relay logic controls have been incorporated into the machine to withstand harsh environments and the demands of the job site. The multi-function display makes it easy to calibrate the system. Powered by a Cummins QSB-220 Tier III

diesel engine operating at 230 hp (171 kW) and 1800 rpm, the F1000 series also features an integrated Sauer drive system. The availability of these parts throughout the country means quick turn-around for maintenance and repair for maximum uptime on the site. A 36 kW, 60 Hz generator provides full output at low idle for increased fuel economy. The F1000 series is easy to operate with features and functions that have been designed with operator comfort and safety in mind. The simple controls and multi-function display are operator friendly and grouped for convenience. The precision front-wheel assist steering on the F1000W is tight and responsive, and the steering on the F1000T can be controlled by a knob for precise paving speed control. A return-to-center feature is an advantage on both models, as well as a single lever for forward/reverse control. Fumes exhaust through the engine stack, reducing the crew’s exposure to asphalt fumes. Uptime is critical on any paving job so the F1000 series is easy to troubleshoot and service, according to the manufacturer. No daily lubrication is required on the tractor, and two fuel tanks are at ground level for quick refueling. A single panel at the side gives full access to filters, and flip-open doors and a removable top cover give full access to the engine and hydraulic lines. There is a pressurized hydraulic filtration system with one-piece hydraulic valve manifolds offering simple maintenance. And for

overall maintenance, the radiator and oil cooler have been designed to withstand pressure washing. Electronics in harsh environments can be an issue in some cases, but not with the F1000 series pavers. The sealed wiring harness in the sealed fuse box is designed for easy service in a clean enclosure. The logic relays feature an LED power indicator, latching indicator and mechanical override for fast trouble shooting and quick replacement. The Sauer cartridge valves have a

manual override, and the drive system is easily disengaged with a simple manual conveyor tension to move the paver in the event of a major failure. “We call it ‘Uptime from Design,’” said Bruce Truesdale, president, Dynapac USA. “Everything on this paver has been designed to help contractors improve productivity, reliability, operator comfort and safety and reduce total cost of ownership.” For more information, visit www.dynapac.com.

The conveyor system delivers 600 tons (544 t) per hour of asphalt to either a Carlson EZ III or EZ IV screed to lay mats up to 12 in. (30.5 cm) deep on new placements, and thin overlays on rehabilitation projects.

Performance and reliability Dynapac’s asphalt rollers and pavers Dynapac’s CC424HF, CC524HF and CC624HF tandem asphalt rollers are a new generation of articulated tandem rollers powered by a Cummins QSB 4.5 water-cooled turbo-diesel engine with after cooler. The rated power is 125 hp at 2200 rpm for the CC424HF, and 152hp for the CC524HF and for the CC624HF. The new models have operating masses ranging from 11.6 tons to 13.9 tons, the weight split evenly between the front and rear drum modules. Dynapac’s new F1000 series wheeled or tracked asphalt pavers have been designed especially for the North American market. They have the lowest deck height in the industry and feature 3/4-inch formed hopper wings that deliver asphalt to a high-capacity slat conveyor. A high-performance outboard auger drive and the conveyor design eliminates center line segregation. Want to know more? Have a closer look at dynapac.com.

EXACTCOMPACT HELPS SPEED COMPACTION BY MONITORING IMPACT SPACING Take a high-frequency Sakai roller and you can speed compaction. With EXACTCOMPACT, you can be sure that you’re rolling at the precise impact spacing. EXACTCOMPACT is a simple visual monitor: Red = You’re rolling too fast. Yellow = You’re rolling too slow. Green = You’re right on target to reach density at the fastest possible ground speed. EXACTCOMPACT is standard on mainline Sakai rollers – optional on all others. Put it to work on your next HMA job.

New Bobcat Utility Vehicles Offer Improved Performance From inspecting fence on a farm or acreage to hauling tools and people around a construction site, efficiency is key to a productive job. The all-new line of Bobcat utility vehicles is designed to deliver the power and performance needed to handle any job-related task with ease, according to the manufacturer. Every aspect of the new Bobcat utility vehicles has been designed to help customers get more work done in less time. Increased power, speed, payload capacity and uptime are all key features built into the all-new design. And like all Bobcat compact equipment, the utility vehicles are versatile job site machines that can reach areas where larger equipment can’t fit. The new Bobcat line of utility vehicles launches with four models — the 3200, 3400, 3400XL and 3450. Features range from twowheel drive to the four-wheel drive, attachment-ready 3450. Additional options and accessories are available to customize the new utility vehicles to fit each customer’s unique needs. Power and Performance Several improvements have been made to the new Bobcat utility vehicles, including performance enhancements such as more responsive acceleration, better payload capacities and increased horsepower and top speeds, and electronic fuel-injected gas 4x4 models that start easier and run more reliably in higher altitudes. Increased payloads, acceleration and top speeds are the direct result of the new horsepower ratings in both the gas and diesel engines — ranging from 24.8 to 32 hp (18.5 to 23.8 kW). This means customers can quickly haul tools, materials and people — up to six in the 3400XL with bench seating — across job sites or other large areas such as athletic fields or farms. Operators can easily flip a switch to select from one-wheel (turf mode), two-wheel or fourwheel drive on the Bobcat 4x4 models to best match the driving conditions. When the front wheels are engaged in the 4x4 mode, all four wheels receive torque for maximum traction.

materials. Maximum lift height is 2 ft. (.6 m) and rated operating capacity is 500 lbs. (227 kg). Other options are available to match the utility vehicle to specific task-related demands, such as an optional brush guard, powered cargo box lift, strobe lights, turn signals and backup alarms. The integrated accessory system designed into the cargo box allows a number of accessories to quickly and easily be mounted to the vehicle. The accessories include a tool holder, cargo box divider, cargo box wall extensions, as well as a number of other task-related accessories. Bobcat Utility Vehicles a Match for All Tasks The new family of Bobcat utility vehicles is a great match for farmers and homeowners with acreage, construction and landscape contractors, and facility and maintenance professionals of all types. Large areas of land mean time spent traveling from one chore or task to the next. With top speeds up to 30 mph (48 kmh), the new Bobcat utility vehicles can make quick work of getting the necessary people and proper tools to each task. Features such as fourwheel independent suspension or dealer-installed cabs mean operators will be able to complete long days of work in comfort, according to the manufacturer.

Operators can easily flip a switch to select from one-wheel, two-wheel or four-wheel drive on the Bobcat 4x4 models to best match the driving conditions.

Operator Comfort and Ease of Use Operators and passengers will ride in comfort as the four-wheel independent suspension provides a smooth ride and improves the Bobcat utility vehicle’s agility over rough terrain. Other comfort features include lower sound levels, two-passenger bucket seating (dealer-installed bench seat also available) and a dealer-installed cab and heat for working in cold or windy climates. These features and others, such as easy-to-see instrumentation, a single-latch tailgate and easy-toclean cargo box, make Bobcat utility vehicles intuitive to use, according to the manufacturer. Uptime and Easy Maintenance If a vehicle isn’t running, it isn’t working. Bobcat utility vehicles feature durable components and protective parts for maximum uptime and easy upkeep, including the sealed continuously variable transmission (CVT) guard, full skid plate, front and rear constant velocity CV boot shields and a radiator guard. The vehicles also feature a composite cargo box that resists corrosion, unlike steel or

To meet job site needs, the 3450 can use up to five front-mounted attachments with the RapidLink attachment mounting system.

aluminum. Day-to-day maintenance checks are easy to perform with quick access to the engine compartment, air filter and battery. Liquid-cooled engines in Bobcat utility vehicles protect critical engine components from overheating, which also results in more power and performance from the machine because components are kept cooler at higher engine speeds.

Attachment Readiness and Maximum Versatility To meet job site needs, the 3450 can use up to five front-mounted attachments with the RapidLink attachment mounting system. Choose from a bucket, pallet fork, mower, snow blade or Whisker push broom to do anything from clearing sidewalks of snow and debris to moving dirt or palleted

Hauling Tools/Supplies A job site full of equipment and construction materials can be a tight fit, but the all-new Bobcat utility vehicles are compact enough to move with ease, all while carrying crew members, tools and materials. With a 1,600or 1,850-lb. (726 or 839 kg) vehicle rated capacity and a towing capacity of 1,500 lbs. (680 kg), the utility vehicles can tow or haul the necessary items to complete a task, quickly moving on to the next. The 3450 has the ability to switch between five attachments to complete additional work and keep larger equipment focused on larger jobs. For more information, visit www.bobcat.com.
