After-Market CAT/ASV Multi-Terrain Loader Track Repair/Parts! Tired of spending thousands of dollars for parts that break down on your CAT/ASV/Terex Small Multi-Terrain or Compact Loaders?

Super Hub 2 Upgrade Kit “LARRY LUGS” PATENTED BOLT-ON REPLACEmENT DRIVE LUGS. Don’t throw away your track due to missing drive lugs. Larry Lugs are heavy-duty lugs that bolt onto the track in place of rubber lugs that have broken, worn, or delaminated off the track, extending the life of the track. These revolutionary lugs will outlive the track itself. Ten minutes to install in the field or shop without removing the track. Simply grind off the old lug, place a template onto the track, and drill directly into the template and track to match up your bolt holes. Using an air impact, tighten the bolts into the lug. Larry Lugs can replace all the original lugs on a track. When the life of the track is finished, remove the Larry Lugs and reinstall on different tracks.

Building to National Floor Insurance Program (NFIP) standards and beyond after Hurricane Irene proved to minimize damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.

Customers Testify Foundation Flood Vents Prevented Destruction Caused by Hurricane Sandy

I

n the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the largest Atlantic tropical system on record, Smart Vent Products, Inc. urges homeowners to build to the NFIP standards and beyond to minimize danger and destruction that a hurricane, flood or other natural disaster may cause.

equiPMent DirectOrY

the leading source for equipment info in the construction industry. Five Star PubliShing, inc. publishes the Midwest Farm & livestock Directory, the Southern Farm & livestock Directory, the eastern Farm & livestock Directory and the contractors equipment Directories. Five Star PubliShing, inc., established in 1994, located in Fort Dodge, iowa was a recipient of the prestigious Fort Dodge chamber of commerce Small business of the Year award.

In addition to the enormous costs of repairing homes damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, homeowners in stormdamaged areas will soon face soaring flood insurance rates and heightened standards for rebuilding. Retrofitting with compliant NFIP products, such as automatic flood foundation systems, not only reduces insurance premiums, but gives homeowners peace of mind that their home and family is protected from the devastating effects of a flood.

Five Star PubliShing, inc. and its board Of Directors has no other affiliatiations, spin-offs or divisions of any other organization or companies. Five Star PubliShing, inc. bOarD OF DirectOrS: Kim Dencklau • Heidi Gorman • Jan Hilpipre

One example comes from Woodbridge, NJ where the Woodbridge Code Official reports that 35 homes were reported with collapsed foundations after Sandy. A Woodbridge resident (and SMART VENT customer), rebuilt his ravaged home to compliance after Hurricane Irene hit in 2011, and reported no damage after Hurricane Sandy:

the cOntractOrS equiPMent DirectOrY is printed monthly and distributed throughout the united States to the most qualified buyers and sellers in the construction industry. Opinions expressed in the contractors equipment Directory are not necessarily those of the publication personnel, but of the writers who contribute editorial content to the contractors equipment Directory.

"My home, along with many others on my block, was destroyed in Hurricane Irene. The tidal surge was so strong, that the pressure of the water outside pushed against my foundation walls, causing them to give way and collapse. Many on my block decided to repair, but I decided to build a new house on the same property, but this time elevate it above the floodplain. My contractor and engineer explained to me about a product called SMART VENT, which has built-in floats to have the doors only open to allow flood water to enter. I had five vents installed in my new foundation walls,” said Justin Kooy of Woodbridge, NJ. “Hurricane Sandy came by 3 weeks after moving back home, and hit my neighborhood hard. At least a dozen houses, including some just repaired after Irene, had foundation collapses on my block. My foundation stood strong. Even though Sandy was a much more powerful storm, and water levels were much higher than Irene, there was no structural damage at all. The SMART VENTS did their job, allowing water to enter the crawl space under the home, relieving all pressure from the foundation walls. To make things better, they even lowered my flood insurance bill!"

“So many people out there in flood zones have the thought that their home is never going to flood. So much so that builders and homeowners choose not to build up to NFIP standards including going with cheap, untested air vents as their required flood openings instead of compliant, certified flood vents,” said Brian Shaw, Business Development Manager, Smart Vent Products, Inc. “Mr. Kooy from Woodbridge, NJ is just one example of thousands that saw their foundation stay intact during Hurricane Sandy, by installing SMART VENTS. "Utilizing wet floodproofing, also known as flood vents, is not only a Building Code and NFIP Regulation for residential structures, but also the most logical way to protect floodplain structures without expanding the floodplain. Wet floodproofing is also a great option for non-residential buildings, eliminating the high cost and liability of dry floodproofing.” For a free property evaluation you can contact one of their staffed Certified Floodplain Managers (CFM) at 877-441-8368 or visit www.smartvent.com. 800-622-8836 | The

An automatic foundation flood vent system, controlled by patented dual floats, SMART VENT automatically opens when flood water levels rise, without electricity and without human intervention. Temperature controlled louvers control the airflow in and out of a crawlspace on all dual function models.

How Warehouse Ventilation Benefits from High Volume, Low Speed Fans –by Eddie Boyd, president of MacroAir | www.macroairfans.com Indoor air quality is important whether you work in a warehouse or a barn. Indoor air, when it isn’t continuously mixed with fresh air, becomes stuffy and smelly. With high ceilings and vast storage areas that are in constant flux due to stock movement and distribution, large warehouses face ongoing ventilation and temperature battles. Natural ventilation can help maintain good air quality, but this presents numerous other natural challenges – namely, it’s difficult to maintain a uniform air temperature. And while HVAC systems and box fans can help with distributing air and maintaining temperatures, they consume vast amounts of energy and are expensive to run. Plus, you’d need numerous box fans to cool down such a large space, which can become a hazard. To maintain indoor air quality and increase the comfort level and productivity of employees, high volume, low speed (HVLS) large-size commercial ceiling fans should be looked to as an efficient and cost-effective solution.

Challenges of natural ventilation systems Natural ventilation is ideal; however, these systems come with their own inherent challenges.

Maintaining uniform temperatures is difficult

With a natural ventilation system, you must constantly monitor humidity and temperature. In the summer, it can be difficult to cool down the interior of a large warehouse if a breeze isn’t blowing. If you live in areas of high humidity, opening doors and windows is simply not an option. In the winter, it may be too cold, yet keeping them closed causes heat build up.

Building must be oriented correctly

To take advantage of prevailing natural conditions, a warehouse must be oriented correctly. However, this is not always possible, given individual outside terrain and logistics considerations. The area around the warehouse must be

free of obstructions to allow for the free flow of air, while storage inside must be conducive as well.

Build up of condensation

On high humidity days, water vapor is released into a building. Water vapor moves independently of air and always flows to the coldest point, such as concrete floors, which cool down at night. Once the concrete slab reaches dew point as temperatures increase, condensation is formed on the floor, which poses real safety hazards to people and machinery. Condensation on roof beams can also drip to the floor and surfaces, causing discomfort for people, and damage to machinery and materials.

HVLS Fans Provide Superior Ventilation HVLS fans work in tandem with natural ventilation or HVAC systems, and also reduce or eliminate many of the challenges associated with these systems

while offering significant energy efficiencies and significantly lowering HVAC costs. By continuously mixing incoming fresh air with stale air, HVLS fans minimize the total amount of ventilation required to achieve adequate air quality, and uses less energy. HVLS technology also helps keep employees comfortable, safe and productive, and with balanced and controlled temperatures, product and machinery are also within an optimal environment.

How HVLS fans work

For some people, the slow movement of an HVLS fan is deceptive — how can such a slow moving fan cool down employees or provide superior ventilation? You don’t need a physics degree to know that a breeze moving across your skin on a hot day feels good, especially in humid environments. While a cool breeze brushing over hot skin feels good, high volume air movement can be both unpleasant and disruptive. And, air speed beyond four

or five mph usually offers little, if any, additional cooling benefits. The reason why a large, slow moving fan actually cools better and more efficiently than a small, high-speed fan is due to the large column of air, “traveling” farther than a small one. Through HVLS technology, when the down column of air from an HVLS fan reaches the floor, the air turns in the horizontal direction away from the column in all directions. The air flowing outward is called the “horizontal floor jet.” Since the height of the floor jet is determined by the diameter of the column of air, a larger diameter fan naturally produces a larger air column and thus a higher floor jet. Smaller high-speed fans are incapable of producing the same effect. Airspeed, combined with fan “effectiveness,” means that very large, low-speed commercial fans are enormously more efficient and effective than small highspeed fans. Continued on page A9

Since developing the first HVLS prototype in 1998, MacroAir continues to serve as an HVLS industry leader through its commitment to innovation and design of the most durable and cost-effective commercial ceiling fans on the market. As the “engineers of air,™” MacroAir produces energy-efficient, long-lasting HVLS fans that can be found in barns, warehouses, manufacturing plants, airplane hangars and retail establishments across the U.S. and around the world, and are used by companies such as Coca-Cola, CSX Transportation and NAPA Auto Parts. The company is the exclusive HVLS fan supplier for independent auto dealerships of BMW, Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan and Toyota under their Dealer Equipment Programs.

Improved ventilation and indoor air quality

Although a building, including a warehouse, may have an air exhaust system in place, these systems often fail to thoroughly mix all of the inside air. This type of system gets short circuited as doors or windows are opened and closed. Air pressure created in the suction of the exhaust looks to the path of least resistance and circumvents the intake devices. HVLS fans eliminate this problem as they continuously mix incoming fresh air, vastly improving indoor air quality.

Eliminate condensation buildup

Because HVLS fans constantly mix air from roof to floor, a constant state of thermal equilibrium exists inside the building – and hence, condensation doesn’t form on the roof beams or floor, eliminating condensation dripping on product or machinery, as well as helping to ensure the floor stays dry and safe.

Provide heat destratification

In the winter months, when “warm air rises” the effect can cost an additional 25 percent or more since more heat is required to maintain floor level temperatures. Why so much? The rate of heat loss or transmission through the roof accounts for roughly 70 percent of the transmission losses inherent in all structures. The objective, then, is to even out the temperature gradient from floor to ceiling in order to reduce heat loss. The unique feature of HVLS fans is that they can run in reverse, which pushes the warm air at the top of the structure down to the floor effectively and efficiently evening out temperature throughout the warehouse. The result is that one HVLS fan applied to 20,000 square feet of indoor space can easily return 20 percent of heating energy dollars.

How to Choose the Right HVLS Fan HVLS fans are incredibly energy efficient — one HVLS fan can replace up to 50 high-speed box fans while covering up to 20,000 square feet of facility space. Which size HVLS fan should you choose? This depends on the size of your facility and its height. To maintain continuous air exchange, add one HVLS fan per 20,000 square feet of space. The bigger the HVLS fan, the more air it can move over a larger space. MacroAir, originator of the HVLS technology in 1998 as a solution for cooling dairy cows and increasing milk production, today remains a leading manufacturer of HVLS fans in 8’ to 24’ in diameter. The company provides a number of calculator applications on its website that, upon entering specific building specifications, help determine the right MacroAir fan (or fans) to achieve optimal air movement and results: macroairfans.com/fan-calculators/. MacroAir fans using the company’s patented 6ixBlade™ technology have proved to lower heating and cooling costs by as much as 20 percent in a variety of building settings. March 2013

Copper Cop: A Simple Solution to Protect HVAC against Metal Theft Linear LLC, the leader in residential and commercial access control, emergency response and security solutions, announces Copper Cop, a new copper theft security solution designed to protect commercial HVAC units, one of the most frequent targets of metal thieves, from being stripped of copper piping and hardware. Designed for easy installation to the exterior of a commercial HVAC unit, Linear’s Copper Cop includes a unique wire harness and patent-pending spring-loaded clips enclosed in a durable bright yellow casing that provides “Protected by Copper Cop” warning signage to deter would-be thieves. As simple as it is effective, the Copper Cop goes to work when anyone tries to remove the HVAC cover or disarm the unit. If breached, Copper Cop connects to a local siren while also transmitting an alarm signal to a Linear or other security system which then alerts the proper authorities. Copper Cop has advantages over existing HVAC metal security solutions as well. Since it is an alarm activation device, licensed security system installers can retrofit existing HVAC units without needing an HVAC installer’s license or an electrician’s license. Security system installers can install Copper Cop for commercial customers directly, or work with HVAC contractors to install and monitor. Integrating with existing alarm panels is easily accomplished with Linear’s wireless Transmitter/Receiver Pair (DXS-31 / DXS702).

ABOVE: HVAC unit damaged by copper thieves. (What a nightmare!) BELOW: Close up image of the Copper Cop. Easy to install with multiple levels of security, Copper Cop is a powerful deterrent against metal thieves targeting industrial HVAC units.

Copper and metal thefts are especially destructive because the cost of repair, replacement and insurance premium increases far exceed the value of stolen metal. A $10,000 HVAC unit can be rendered useless when the $75 worth of copper tubing is removed. This imbalance makes simple, affordable solutions like the Copper Cop even more appealing. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NCIB), metal thefts have increased 81 percent since 2008, with copper by far the most frequently stolen material. Critical infrastructure sources like traffic lights and railway signals, farm equipment, construction sites and unoccupied buildings have all been targeted by thieves willing to risk personal safety and cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage for a few hundred dollars worth of metal. “We’ve seen countless cases of schools, businesses, churches and construction sites targeted by metal thieves, often because of inadequate security,” said Duane Paulsen, senior vice president of product and market development for Linear. “Copper Cop is

the simplest, most affordable and effective solution to combat copper theft because it provides a visual deterrent on the HVAC unit, an audio deterrent with the siren, and an immediate security response via integration with existing security systems.” Even the federal government recognizes the threat caused by metal theft in an unclassified FBI intelligence assessment that states, “Copper thieves are threatening US critical infrastructure...and present a risk to both public safety and national security.” For more information call 800-421-1587 or visit www.linearcorp.com.

Shipping Container Construction Gains Significant Ground with Mixed Use Builders Across Globe While new “brick and mortar” construction continues to decline amid economic woes and as lumber—the primary new construction material—is harvested faster than it can be replenished to devastating environmental effect, forward-thinking real estate development company Three Squared™, Inc. has made exceptional progress with its cargo container residential and commercial construction initiatives due to escalating marketplace acceptance and demand driven by superior cost efficiencies, heightened profitability, and minimized build time. The company, whose pioneering shipping container building solution offers systemized and sustainable construction resulting in affordable luxury, announced an array of significant company projects and other milestones, as follows. •

Slated to build over $109 million in projects over the next 24 months across the U.S. and at locations abroad.

Rosa Parks condo complex—the company’s flagship project in Detroit representing the first multi-family dwelling constructed from retired shipping containers in the United States—is now “shovel ready” with an approved $603K tax credit; project approved for buyer’s with $25K down payment assistance available. This 20-unit, four-story condominium complex spans 26,000 square feet and integrates 93 shipping containers. The energy efficient systems include ductless heating and air system, tank-less water heaters, and other amenities that combine to reduce each unit’s energy costs by up to 80%;

Scheduled to break ground on Model Center November 2012 with completion slated for January 2013; will be ready to accept purchase agreements to company’s Rosa Parks and Michigan Ave. projects;

$4.5 million Lake Tahoe recreational cabin project, which includes construction of 65 recreational cabins on 67 acres of prime Lake Tahoe property;

Launched patented Cargolinc™ Systems–a first-of-its-kind proprietary 3 step process that provides architects, builders/developers, and private owners with a comprehensive three-step process that surpasses green and sustainable construction and quality standards at a fraction of the cost and time, allowing for higher quality luxury finishes within budget; and

Multiple patent filings in process.

Design is only limited by imagination, not expense. Three Squared uses retired shipping containers as its primary framing material for new construction. Made of steel and wood, this product is stronger than conventional framing, stackable for creating levels, and readily available. The excess containers on the market significantly reduce the comparative cost. With a price tag as low as $900 each, used shipping containers offer a relatively inexpensive construction medium. Even when purchased new, shipping containers rarely cost more than $6,000. Cargo containers may, in fact, be considered the ideal building material as they are strong, resistant to the elements, durable and versatile. Construction is accomplished by simply positioning them.

“We are the perfect solution to construction for all types of projects,” notes Leslie Horn, CEO of Three Squared. “With the U.S. new construction industry desperate for ways to cut costs without undermining quality, green home construction gaining significant momentum, and a growth rate from $49 billion to $140 billion (representing 20% of new construction) forecasted over the next five years, shipping container-based construction is an extraordinarily well-positioned solution. This is especially true for America’s multifamily, mixed use, and commercial markets that are completely underserved even as demand for this segment rises. For these reasons and more, our cargo container-based building options are being extremely well received in both the domestic and international marketplace as our recent array of milestones exemplify. We love Detroit and are thrilled to be building there and help lead turning both the city’s and our nation’s economy around.” Detroit, struggling to keep its proverbial head above water with the collapse of U.S. steel and auto industry and often avoided as a corporate headquarters locale, has a long history of firsts that have impacted the country greatly. In our American culture Detroit has a proud history. With its civic pride returning and sports teams on the comeback, many companies are eyeing the city as choice geography. Whole Foods, for example, is opening its first store there, and Quicken Loans is creating new jobs and leading the pack of encouraging downtown Detroit employees to move to Detroit by offering financial incentives and down-payment assistance programs. Detroit is perfectly positioned to be the home of Three Squared’s first projects. “Detroit was selected as our headquarters because of the state and local gov-

We love Detroit and are thrilled to be building there and help lead turning both the city’s and our nation’s economy around.” “Our company marries the trend toward sustainable green housing solutions with the problems of escalating building costs and a surplus of unlikely yet durable, versatile, widely available, economical and code-friendly shipping containers, which we use as the primary material for construction framing of houses, condominiums, dormitories and other residential, retail, and commercial structures,” Horn continues. “In fact, our cargo container-based construction costs an average of half of other building methods. The structures take a fraction of the time to build and are more energy efficient than their counterparts because of a high-purposed combination of new technologies our team is creating and blending together. What’s more, our buildings provide an elegant balance of simplicity with inherent character and personalized style in each wall. Design is only limited by imagination, not expense. In addition, residents and tenants alike know that their walls have traveled the world and have a story to tell. They’ve seen the ocean and other countries and have stood the test of time.” Given the range of benefits and advantages, architects, contractors, and individuals are increasingly using containers to build homes, offices, apartments, schools, dormitories, artists’ studios, emergency shelters and shops across the world. They are commonly used to provide temporary secure spaces on construction sites and add earthquake resistance to any structure. Europe, China, and New Zealand have successfully pioneered building sustainable living in great numbers utilizing shipping containers. As one example, Travelodge, a global leader in budget hotel lodging, celebrated the 4th anniversary of their completed hotel in Uxbridge, U.K. The project used shipping containers and came in 10% under alternative building estimates, saving them approximately $900,000 in American currency on the construction.

Why Cargo Container-Based Construction? The Problem: As the primary material used in new construction, lumber is a precious commodity that is harvested faster than it can be replenished. According to the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE), trees process significantly more carbon dioxide through absorption before it has a chance to reach the upper atmosphere. The removal of trees without sufficient reforestation has resulted in devastating habitat damage, biodiversity loss, aridity, soil erosion and bio-sequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Concurrently, retired shipping containers are abundant in the United States. It is estimated that a staggering 21,000 shipping containers arrive in the United States every day. Port authorities estimate that over 700,000 used shipping containers are stockpiled on prime waterfront real estate without a significant use, purpose, or method for disposal. Many cargo containers originate from China and are used only on their maiden voyage overseas because it is actually cheaper for China to build a new shipping container than it is to ship the container back to China for reuse. Since the U.S. imports many more manufactured goods than it exports in shipping containers, most remain here, wasting precious space in our ports and landfill. Consequently, the U.S. has a surplus of “empties” which is made available for alternative uses, such as building.

The Shipping Container Construction Solution: Three Squared uses retired shipping containers as its primary framing material for new construction. Made of steel and wood, this product is stronger than conventional framing, stackable for creating levels, and readily available. The excess containers on the market significantly reduce the comparative cost. With a price tag as low as $900 each, used shipping containers offer a relatively inexpensive construction medium. Even when purchased new, shipping containers rarely cost more than $6,000. Cargo containers may, in fact, be considered the ideal building material as they are strong, resistant to the elements, durable and versatile. Construction is accomplished by simply positioning them. The containers’ modular design makes additional construction as easy as stacking more containers up to 12 high. The interlocking mechanism of the containers facilitates mobility so that structures made from them can be easily disassembled, moved, and reassembled. Three Squared, Inc. is a property development market leader in the cargo-based construction industry. This real estate development firm uniquely and effectively employs shipping containers to build safe, cost-efficient and environmentally-friendly homes, schools, offices, and warehouse space across the globe. The company’s Cargolinc™ Systems ground-breaking proprietary 3 step process offers a more profitable and efficient design and engineering system for construction projects. Rebuilding America through modular living, Three Squared is demonstrating new luxury construction can be executed faster, more affordably, and with greater energy efficiency.

JCB Machines To Help Unearth Buried Wartime Spitfires It is another great Staffordshire engineer, Reginald Mitchell, who is famous for designing the Spitfire. He was born in 1895 in Kidsgrove, Staffordshire and educated at Hanley High School, Stoke-on-Trent. Sir Anthony Bamford said: “Reginald Mitchell put Staffordshire on the map in the 1930s with the design of the Spitfire so it’s very fitting that JCB, a modern day innovator and engineering company based in the county, should be providing the excavators to dig up the planes.” Oliver Keates, who has worked for JCB for 14 years, said: “I’m excited at the prospect of being involved in this project. It’s going to be thrilling to be at the controls of JCB machines attempting to unearth a Spitfire.” Businessman Julian Mitchell, of Newcastle, Staffordshire, who is Reginald’s great-nephew said: “I’m delighted that JCB is involved in helping recover the Spitfires. Staffordshire is a great manufacturing county and I’m sure my

great-uncle would have been pleased that a modern-day British engineering success story was playing such an important role in this project.” The dig is getting underway after a 17 year search for the Spitfires led by aviation enthusiast David Cundall. Award-winning on-line games developer Wargaming is funding the efforts to recover the buried Spitfires. The JCB 3CX backhoe loader is the world’s most versatile piece of construction equipment and is one of the biggest selling machines thanks to its ability to load, road and excavate. It weighs in at 17,000 pounds, has a top speed of 25mph and a bucket capacity of 1.4 cu yd. JCB has made more than half a million backhoes since 1953. The JS200 tracked excavator being used in the dig weighs in at 20 metric ton, is powered by a 172hp engine and can dig to a depth of 21.8 feet.

–––––––––––––––––––––––– Premium rubber protection available for construction equipment Age-Master #1® rubber protectant is a surface treatment that has protected military, industrial, aviation and space equipment from rubber “dry rot” since 1969. This protection against cracking, loss of strength and flexibility is now available for construction equipment. When painted onto tires, tracks, hoses, belts, bushings, or other rubber parts, it penetrates and dries in minutes, leaving no slick or oily residue. The strength, flexibility and traction properties of rubber are not affected, and this penetrating protection will not peel or wash off.

Benefits include: • Longer service life for lower replacement costs. • Less repair downtime. • Improved readiness of equipment in storage. • Meets Military Specifications. For more information call Chem-Pro, Inc. at 804-744-4869 or visit www.chem-pro.net.

------------------------------------------------------------Hoover Diesel Service LLC has the expertise and sources to provide complete power unit packages for the stationary non-road market

Hoover Diesel offers Hi-Power and Lister Petter genset units. We can also custom build a genset to suit your needs. Whether you need a backup power source for when the power goes out, or a mobile unit for on the job site, we have something to fill your needs.

Gehman Bros. of Terre Hill, Pa, was a lawnmower shop as well as a Petter Diesel dealer. Melvin Hoover joined Gehman Bros in 1973 to work in their diesel division and in 1974 bought the Petter Diesel aspect of the company and renamed the company Hoover Diesel Service. Two years later, in 1976, the business was moved to a larger facility for a higher parts stock and more engine storage space. Distributorship of the Lombardini Diesels was taken on at the same time.

Hoover Diesel Service offers a variety of diesel power units, built specifically to fit your needs. We can custom build a power unit to include a skid, clutch, muffler, or fuel tank. We have new and rebuilt units available.

In 1985, the Lister company and the Petter Diesel company merged, giving us access to the Lister-Petter line of diesels. With the added capacity of selling both Lombardini and Lister-Petter engines, and after several additional employees, it was decided to build a 9,000 square foot structure in 1986. It included a dedicated engine rebuilding department, larger parts department, and a road service bay. In 1992 we were introduced to the Iveco Industrial dealership, which gave us access to an excellent line of diesels. 2005 brought on two more dealerships, as we added John Deere and Yanmar to our collection. With our ever increasing stock of parts, along with the generator sales, our facility gradually filled up. In 2011 we opened our brand new 31,000 square foot building.

Age-Master No.1® was developed by a chemical engineer with over twenty years of experience in the rubber industry, including research and development for major U.S. tire manufacturers. Extensive study and testing culminated in development of this long lasting, cost effective way for protecting rubber from the harmful effects of ozone and ultra violet light associated with aging and weathering, often referred to as "dry rot." Initially used for specialized military applications, AgeMaster No.1 has proven effective at extending the service life of a variety of rubber components, reducing replacement costs and down time for savings in many industrial and commercial applications.

Generators Put science to work for you. Rubber “dry rot” is caused by UV rays, oxidation, and ozone in the environment. Age-Master #1® works by adding a chemical barrier to rubber that reacts with these harmful elements before rubber can be damaged. This protection is especially effective for equipment exposed to hot, sunny environments.

------------------------------------------------------------VMAC RAPTAIR60 Stand-Alone Diesel Drive Air Compressor Created specifically for the mobile market, VMAC’s RAPTAIR60 system delivers true 60CFM at 100 PSI. Utilizing VMAC’s stateof-the-art Intelligent Digital Controls, the 100% duty cycle RAPTAIR60 turns itself on and off in response to air tool demand, contributing significantly to reduced idling and fuel costs as well as a greener environmental profile while still packing enough muscle to power up to a 60 lb. jackhammer or a 1-1/4” impact wrench. Measuring a compact 18”W x 34.5”L x 28”H and weighing just 450 lbs. this system is significantly lighter than the nearest competitor offering. One of VMAC’s first RAPTAIR customers, Kade Van Shaik, of Highway Tire in Nanaimo, B.C. was delighted with the diesel-drive system. “It delivers good power, and it’s basically unstoppable! Turn it on, start it, do your job, shut it off - it’s a no-brainer.

You can’t compare it to a reciprocating compressor because they’re like apples and oranges - completely different. The Raptair is way more efficient. I get twice the work done in half the time.” He added, “They call it ‘The Beast’, but I don’t know... if it had legs I’d probably be out of work!” New in the RAPTAIR assembly line and coming Spring 2013 is the RAPTAIR Multifunction.Combining an air compressor, AC generator, welder, battery charger, hydraulics and auto-shutdown in one compact, powerful package, the new RAPTAIR Multifunction is the ultimate job site “utility belt”!

A close shave has been coveted for thousands of years. It all started in the Stone Age, when sharpened flint-blade razors edged out the earlier Neanderthal tool for hair removal: seashells. Egyptians obsessed over hair removal in 3,000 B.C., regarding a clean-shaven face as a sign of good breeding. They used razors, creams, and pumice stones.

Across the ocean, Aztecs shaved with razors made from volcanic glass (obsidian) in the 1500s. Then came the breakthrough: In the late 1600s, steel blades were introduced in Sheffield, England. Fast-forward to 1929, when Col. Jacob Schick marketed the first electric shaver.

From Dilapidated Corn Silo to Hyper Energy Efficient and Resilient Office TF Forming Systems latest project is the construction of an environmentally green, highly energy efficient and structurally resilient home/office out of a dilapidated old corn silo. Located in Mount City, MO, local grain farmer JW Trimmer is taking a former corn silo and transforming it into the ultimate home/office. The new building will be constructed out of Vertical Insulated Concrete Forms from TF Forming Systems. “We were looking for an energy efficient material and concept,” Trimmer explained. “We compared ICF to double stud to highly insulated wall to a sip type panel…what we actually wanted to do with the radius of the corn silo is why we chose TF. TF’s vertical design looked the best option for doing the radius." Steve Graham with Graham Construction was the installer on the project. This was the first building he had completed where an existing structure was repurposed and four radius walls were part of the design. “We were impressed with the ease of being able to create the perfect radius,” said Graham. “Additionally, with this system, the homeowner should experience a lower utility bill and the structural integrity of the home, being that the walls are 8-inches and the helix added, will offer them safety for years to come.” “The corn silo was a well-built structure and unique, not too many of them were built this way,” Trimmer says. “However, it no longer served a useful purpose as a corn elevator. We were looking for something that it could be repurposed into. The farm had grown so we needed an office space.”

Hyper Energy Efficiency JW Trimmer owns more than 200 acres of farmland in the small Northeastern town of Mound City. Located near Nebraska where winter temperatures can be extreme, Trimmer intends to use geothermal energy to heat the structure. He will also tie in the excess heat from the wood-fired boiler to heat the water in the radiant floor system to heat the lower level.

Because of the usage of natural energy, coupled with the concrete walls and insulation on both sides of his walls, he will reduce his energy bills by well over 50 percent. “Our house is smaller than this structure, but we are hoping with the energy efficient walls and the design aspects of the building, the bills will be comparable to a space half its size,” Trimmer says.

Resilient and Disaster Resistant The new building, a hybrid of the existing structure and the new structure, will result in a state-of-theart building with walls engineered to withstand 250 mph winds thanks to the slow curing process accomplished with a TF concrete wall and addition of Helix fibers to the concrete mix. “We get intense storms and high winds. We get tornadoes that go through the area,” Trimmer says. “I was looking at a long-term structure; something that would withstand extreme weather conditions and stand for a considerable period of time.”

“This is a testament to the unique capabilities our wall systems offer,” says Kirk Brown, TF Forming Systems’ CEO. “Not only do we offer solid and affordable ways to be resilient and energy efficient, but we give building owner’s the opportunity to incorporate our wall systems into existingstructures. Once again the vertical design of our system proves that we are architecturally-friendly for every application.” The new structure will offer 4900 square feet of space that will be used for offices, a conference room, full kitchen and guest bedrooms and living quarters. Trimmer hopes to have the building complete by April 2013. For more information, visit www. tfsystem.com.
