After spending over four years researching the adhesive properties of pig manure, Dr. Fini pioneered a unique process to break down the manure and convert it into an asphalt-binding adhesive. The innovative biobinder can be used as either a full or partial substitute to standard petroleum-based adhesives and, at only about $0.54 a gallon, costs significantly less than its $2-a-gallon petroleum-based binder counterparts. With the majority of her research behind her, Fini is ready to prove this product in the marketplace and has started a company with her N.C. A&T colleagues called PiGrid. PiGrid (rhymes with ‘hybrid’) hopes to establish a pilot production facility somewhere in North Carolina before moving forward with plans for national hubs. Why North Carolina? Waste management and the disposal of hog manure has been a long-time problem for North Carolina farmers. While other parts of the country use hog waste up to twice a year to fertilize crops, North Carolina has fewer crops so farmers store waste in pits and lagoons. Not only does

Dr. Fini holding her pig waste asphalt creation. PiGrid reduce the cost of the storage pits but it also reduces the environmental pollution caused by manure odors, prevents spills of millions of gallons of untreated waste into groundwater, and even reduces the amount of CO2 emissions during construction. Dr. Fini received more than $1 million in financial support from the National Science Foundation, National Academy of Science and N.C. A&T State University for her PiGrid development.

“By using our curved hat channel products, contractors can achieve the same strength in a decreased profile due to its unique shape,” says Sheri Carter, AIA, and marketing manager at radius Track. “No clips are used, so torsion is removed. In short, you achieve more strength from less material.”

Radius Track Introduces Curved Hat Channel as Alternative Construction Method Radius Track Corporation now offers precurved hat channels, a new innovation that is helping the industry cut construction costs while achieving aesthetically pleasing curved surfaces. Curved hat channel can be an economical framing alternative to cold rolled channel and c-studs and other framing methods. Hat channel eliminates the need for clip connections, is easier to attach to surfaces than other materials, does not deflect or deform like a steel stud, can be flexed in the field and offers more strength from less material. At

around 50 cents per foot, hat channel is an economical alternative. radius Track’s hat channel innovation has been used in a wide variety of projects, from domes and roofs to major national projects. The company first used its hat channel for the interior work on the construction of Los Angeles’ famed Disney Concert Hall, and most recently to support the twisting metal architecture for the traffic control tower at the Edmonton International Airport.

Contractors working the renovation of a historic building or a retrofit find that because of its geometry, the hat channel can attach to an “out of true wall” and be shimmed to provide a plum and level surface to attach drywall. Additionally, hat channels can provide sound dampening characteristics; acoustic sound travels differently on angles than on straight surfaces. radius Track provides color-coded nomenclature and unique part numbers for all materials. The part number for each part is put on layout drawings to help ease installation on the jobsite. radius Track can bend and deliver curved material in long lengths, typically up to 16’. “We have been known to push the envelope to meet special conditions with review from our engineering team,” says Carter. Material can be stacked for shipment to help reduce costs. For more info visit www.radiustrack.com.

Protective Coatings Keep Equipment Running and Maintenance Costs Down Every moment your equipment is unable to do its job, it is costing you money. Common chemical substances such as acids, urea, salt, chlorides, fertilizer, potash, lime, as well as environmental conditions like moisture, water, snow, ice, and Uv rays, are the main culprits in the corrosion and deterioration of equipment that lead to high costs from maintenance, malfunction and lost productivity. These factors combined also reduce the overall equipment lifetime. After one year, this Nyalic® coated CAT wheel loader moving tons of highly corrosive salt in Salt Lake City's hot desert sun shows no sign of corrosion or premature wear.

With the North American construction equipment market expected to generate 39.4 billion dollars of revenue streams by 2015 (up from 25.8 billion in 2011), it’s more important than ever for the heavy-construction industry to protect its equipment and keep it running to meet (or exceed!) the forecasted revenues (Source: Statista.com of Dow Jones).

Protecting your equipment today means you’ll be able to make and keep more money tomorrow. Today’s heavy-construction machines are equipped with sensitive electrical and mechanical components. And while it’s easy to see how the appearance on a machine’s exterior is degrading, peeling or oxidizing, to prevent extremely accelerated wear and premature equipment replacements costs, it’s critical to give attention to the effects highly corrosive agents can have on the machine’s internal connections, engine compartment and undercarriage. It can be a difficult undertaking to control, prevent and mitigate common corrosive agents from disabling and destroying equipment. And while machines all have different jobs and operate in diverse environments, a protective coating will help shield every single one from harmful corrosive environments that cause

equipment decay and breakdown, which leads to increased downtime, lost revenue and shorter machine life. Waxes and polishes can prevent some corrosion, but they are not designed to cover every part of a machine (specifically internal) and they require regular polishing and buffing; time that mission critical equipment could be spending in the field. The cost to coat a machine can provide a substantial return on investment. The coating materials and application are typically less than one percent of the machine cost, and new machine owners are able to capitalize the cost of coating. A properly prepared and applied coating can provide many years of protection, generating significant cost savings in equipment maintenance and downtime. In terms of materials, a polymeric resin coating provides substantial benefits. It is clear, ultra-thin and can be applied on ferrous and non-ferrous metals, galvanized, anodized and powder coated surfaces, and painted surfaces. Specially blended polymeric resin coatings are designed to withstand extreme temperatures, typically ranging from 350 degrees F to below zero degrees F, and perform at film thicknesses as low as 5 microns. These coatings do not yellow, crack, peel or flake when properly applied, and they are easy to clean and maintain. There should be no need for harsh chemical cleaners. Polymeric resin coatings also provide a surface that is easy to touch-up and repair in the field as areas of the coating may become damaged over time. All owners and operators have to do is wipe down the affected area, dry it and spot apply the protective coating to reseal the area. Additionally, if any internal electrical connections need to be repaired or changed out, all that needs to be done is cleaning off the area and recoating. By applying a specially blended polymeric resin coating, equipment owners and operators can significantly reduce corrosion risk, and keep their machines in service for longer periods of time. The cost-effective protective coating reduces equipment maintenance, malfunction and failures, and increases a highly valuable machine’s lifetime and overall productivity.

Bottom line: by protecting your equipment today, you’ll be able to make and keep more money tomorrow.

Author Skip Hawkins is the president of Nyalic®, a company that protects equipment nationwide against corrosion, paint oxidation and staining by sealing surfaces and preventing chemical and environmental corrosive agents from reaching the surface. Nyalic® is a proprietary clear, ultra-thin polymeric resin coating that was originally developed for the Apollo Space Program specifically to protect critical components from harsh environments, and is an ideal surface protectant from chemical and environmental corrosive conditions.

The pressurized lubrication system also allows the OHv engine to use an automotive grade spin-on oil filter, which does an exceptional job of removing dirt and carbon solids to keep the oil clean and extend the time between oil changes. The engine also has an oversized oil cooler to reduce the temperature of the oil in the engine to extend oil life. The big block engines comply with all current EPA and CArB requirements and provide a viable alternative to diesel engines. Both engines are backed by Subaru’s 5-year limited warranty, the first and only 5-year warranty in the industry.

MSA Develops Industrial Hard Hat Made from Sugarcane MSA's iconic V-Gard® line of hard hats, identified by their unique and raised "v-shaped" crown, has saved countless lives by protecting wearers from falling objects and other cranial hazards. But now workers have the option of using a hard hat that not only helps to protect their head, but protects the environment as well. The new MSA v-Gard GrN (for green) Hard Hat is the first industrial safety product produced from nearly 100 percent renewable resources. Developed and manufactured by MSA in Brazil, the MSA v-Gard GrN Hard Hat is similar to conventional hats in that it's made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE). However, unlike traditional hard hats, the HDPE in the MSA v-Gard GrN model is sourced entirely from sugarcane. "By developing a hard hat sourced from sugar, we have reduced the overall carbon footprint that's associated with the entire life-cycle of this particular product, from start to finish," said Eric Beck, MSA's Global Director of Strategic Marketing. Mr. Beck explained that "green" polyethylene is made from sugarcane ethanol, which results in a smaller carbon footprint because, for each ton of the material produced, up to 2.5 pounds of carbon dioxide are captured from the atmosphere. Conversely, Mr. Beck noted that one ton of polyethylene sourced from petrochemicals actually emits more than two pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. He added that green polyethylene is 100 percent recyclable, making it suitable for reuse in non-safety products, which further enhances the sustainability benefits of the new hard hat. "The environmental advantages of using 'green' HDPE in a hard hat are certainly attractive and are what initially captured our interest," said Dr. Thomas Muschter, MSA vice President of Global Product Leadership. "But at the end of the day we would not be using

Greasing in Cold Weather is Easy With a Warm Cartridge Contractors in the construction industry have always found it difficult in cold weather to keep grease, foam, caulk and other temperature sensitive items warm enough to flow freely or stick for efficient application. The Caulk Warmer, a new product recently introduced to the construction industry, solves this age old problem. this material if it didn't provide the same high level of head protection that our v-Gard brand is known for around the world. That's what makes this product option so attractive. The HDPE sourced from sugarcane provides the same performance and properties as resins made from non-renewable raw materials," he said.

Skilled craftsmen know that warm lubricants and adhesive materials flow more freely, resulting in smoother application, better penetration and secure sealing. But when lubricants don’t flow, tapes and adhesives don’t stick and foams don’t spray; time and money are both sacrificed.

"Environmental sustainability is more important than ever today, and our development of a sustainable hard hat provides MSA customers with yet another way to demonstrate their commitment to preserving the planet," Mr. Beck added. "For green construction projects, or for companies focused on sustainability initiatives, we think the v-Gard GrN Hard Hat provides a perfect fit."

Primitive strategies for keeping materials warm in buckets of water or on the de-frost vents of running trucks are wasteful and inefficient at best.

Donaldson Announces New TopSpin HD Heavy-Duty Pre-Cleaners

The all-metal TopSpin HD is built for high-dust and heavy-debris environments, such as mining, construction, oil and gas and agriculture. Its high efficiency design delivers low restriction and enables it to separate and eject up to 80% of incoming contamination before it can reach the engine’s air cleaner.

Now there is a better option, the Caulk Warmer, a unique patented warming bag that keeps lubricants and adhesives warm enough to flow freely relieving application strain on user’s arms and hands.

A Caulk Warmer holds 12 (1 case) standard size caulk tubes, or 7 quart size tubes, or 12 sausage size tubes, or 7 cans of foam, or a case of floor tile. Other suggested uses include temperature sensitive products such as insulating foam, windows & door sealing tape, adhesives, grease cartridges, and more.

Less frequent air filter replacement,

Lower operating costs, and

New users rave about the ease of use, time and money savings that the caulk warmer affords both in work time on the job-site as well as the costs of not having to run vehicles to keep materials warm on unheated sites.

Less maintenance downtime.

It also helps prolong air filter life, which results in:

"Pre-cleaning air before it enters an air cleaner can dramatically improve the life of an air filter, and help avoid costly engine failure," said John Fitzgerald, Product Manager, Donaldson Engine Air Filtration. "TopSpin HD is a cost effective solution that is designed specifically to perform in punishing conditions where precleaners can really take a beating." Donaldson offers a full line of pre-cleaner and rain cover accessories, including Air ram™ inlet hoods, industry leading pre-cleaners such as Strata™ Cap, TopSpin HD, TopSpin, Full-view and Donaspin™, plus moisture skimmers and eliminators.

GOMACO Introduces the New GT-3200 Zero-Clearance Sidewalk Paver Specifically for Rehabilitation Projects

When contractors approach GOMACO with new ideas, the company listens, and a creative partnership begins to build the ultimate machine. GOMACO introduced the GT-3200 sidewalk paver (with an adjustable aggregate base mold on the front and a sidewalk paving mold on the rear) at World of Concrete 2013. It's a three-

www.contractorsequipmentdirectory.com | The

Contractors Equipment Directory

track paver designed specifically for zero-clearance sidewalk rehabilitation projects, fulfilling a contractor's unique request. The GOMACO GT-3200 can be equipped with a frontmounted adjustable aggregate base mold to spread the base aggregate for the sidewalk. During the first pass, rock is placed on grade and an auger spreads the material, while three pan vibrators mounted to the mold start the compaction process. The base mold is equipped with two heavy-duty hydraulic cylinders that provide 14 inches (356 mm) of hydraulic lift for setting the grade depth below the track line and raising the mold for the paving pass. During the second paving pass, the sidewalk is slipformed with a unique, minimum-clearance trailing mold. The GT-3200 sidewalk paver has a 20 inch wide, 14 foot long folding conveyor. The conveyor allows ready-mix trucks to discharge from the street instead of driving over existing curb to reach the paver. The hydraulic pivoting conveyor has also been designed to rotate 180 degrees to allow for easy loading of concrete into the hopper from either side of the machine and to avoid obstacles associated with zero-clearance paving.

GOMACO's new GT-3200 zero-clearance sidewalk paver slipforms a new five foot (1.5 m) wide sidewalk on a rehabilitation project in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

The GOMACO-proven sidewalk mold features hydraulic adjustable sideplates to form the GOMACO edge, while a trailing stainless pan provides the superior finish. The sidewalk mold can also be equipped with a bar inserter for placing transverse bars into the slab, if required by project specifications. The GT-3200 sidewalk paver also features all-track steering, which saves time getting on and off stringline, allows better job-site mobility, and ease in loading and unloading for transport. It can be transported without removing either the front-mounted adjustable aggregate base mold or the rear-mounted sidewalk paving mold. Simply fold the conveyor and drive the GT-3200 onto the trailer for transport. It features the latest in GOMACO machine control with the exclusive G+ system with a new full color screen. G+ is a powerful controller for paving accuracy and electronic monitoring of steering and grade. G+, combined with the GT3200's C4.4T Caterpillar engine with 91 hp (67.9 kW), provides plenty of power for sidewalk paving. For more information visit www.gomaco.com. East Edition | 800-622-8836

How to Keep a Positive Attitude in Challenging Times You’ve probably heard the ancient story of the 3 blind men trying to describe an elephant. One touches the tail and describes the elephant as a snake. Another stumbles against the side and describes the elephant as a wall. Yet the other touches the leg and describes the elephant as a tall tree.

3. Find the silver lining. Constantly ask yourself

The point? Perhaps the issue in front of you is not of as much significance as the angle you are experiencing it from. Learning to position yourself at an advantageous angle can make the difference of whether you experience the best or the worst of your current circumstances.

Once you start seeing the silver lining in every incident, your challenges will cease to be the heavy blocks that previously burdened you; for they will now become stepping stones from where you can stand just a little taller. It’s at this point that you will experience a new height regardless of the negatives thrown your way.

WESCO INC. TRACTOR & EQUIPMENT

4. Trust the bigger plan. You no doubt have big plans. But understand that however big your plans are, the universe has much bigger plans for you. When you are discouraged and things are not working according to your plans, realize that there’s something else out there guiding you; and that which you perceive as a detour might be the actual road you must travel on.

USED REPAIR PARTS 800-626-6046

There are millions of things you can do to position yourself on the right side of a stressful situation, but here are four simple mindsets that you can adopt today regardless of the obstacle at hand:

1. Nothing in life is permanent, not even you. So if you are impermanent, how can your problems be permanent? While this might sound negative, understanding that everything in life is transitory will give you an empowering viewpoint in regards to your current challenges. Reminding yourself that whatever turbulence you are experiencing at this moment is temporary will encourage you to keep elevating yourself in search of that perfect cruising altitude. On the other hand, even when things are perfect, embracing a temporary mindset can be very helpful. You see, people’s zest for life is frequently killed not by misfortunes but by their inability to appreciate what’s already great around them. Therefore, if you begin to remind yourself that this moment, no matter how perfect, will too come to an end, you will start appreciating all of the positives in your life that you have been taking for granted.

2. Failure is a prerequisite. Your failures exist for one and only one reason: to make your future successes possible. Instead of complaining and asking life to stop throwing things at you, start recognizing your current dilemma as building material. Life tosses bricks to all of us; it’s up to you to build an artistic masterpiece or to end up with a pile of rubbles. Keep this thought in mind by Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” Be thankful even for failures, for they are an indispensable piece of your success puzzle.

one simple question: what great opportunity can come out of my current circumstances? Asking this question will direct your energy to look for the hidden positives that lie within your challenges and keep you from wasting it on complaining about the negatives.

Don’t get so caught up on the way things should’ve been, could’ve been, or would’ve been because looking from where you stand you will never be able to comprehend the magnitude of the grand plan that’s in store for you. Trust that you are where you are because that’s where you need to be; then you might get a glimpse at how insignificant your initial plan was and how grandiose your current one is.

Call to Action Everyone says in life you have to be positive if you want to get somewhere. The question is how can you become positive when negative things keep happening to you? Just like anything, being positive is a habit that can be developed.

Curb Shapers,Inc. Curb Shaper is a curbing machine giving concrete workers a brand new way to shape a concrete curb and gutter or a monolithic pour. Our curb roller equipment takes out all the labor of being bent over shaping curb by hand and gives you a perfect concrete curbing shape every time. This tool has several adjustments and can be set up for different jobs in a matter of minutes.

See how easy the Curb Shaper is to operate! Check out our videos online...

www.curbshapers.com

This Curb Roller tool is designed so that you don't have to change the way you form curb and gutter now. Stakes can be protruding above the forms. The back of the Curb Roller is only 1/2� wide, so that you will be able to go around 1/2" Masonite for large radius jobs.

RMH is also the only authorized supplier for the ESCO Hydraulic Hammer parts line!

In fact, even though you may think doing the trade is good for the family business because it builds friendships and can lead to referrals, often the trade is unequal, decreases employee morale, and creates a “who is getting more” pile of resentments within the family. So while trading may be common, it’s a practice you need to avoid or curb immediately. Following are some key points to consider the next time you contemplate trading your family business’s products or services.

Start! W alking. Start! Something. Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in America. But did you know that just 30 minutes a day of physical activity can impr ove your health and decrease your risk of heart disease? An easy way to work physical activity into your regular routine is to start walking. For every single hour of regular, vigorous exercise, you can add two hours to your life expectancy. It’s easy to Start! whether you’r e by

Swapping quickly escalates.

A little trade with a neighbor usually starts out innocent. Perhaps you swap a few haircuts for piano lessons for your child. Since that turned out well, you may keep trading with the person, but then you branch out and do other trades with more businesses. Before you know it, you start to think it’s okay to use the business any way you want to, which could ultimately lead to issues of embezzlement. So even though trading is not seen as taking the company’s assets, it’s a slippery slope that is truly a misuse of the family business.

INSTEAD OF JUST HANGING OUT ON SATURDAYS

Trading decreases employee morale and productivity.

Would you like to put in a full day’s work and not get paid for it? Often, that’s how employees feel (both family and non-family) when they have to do trade work. Think about it from their perspective. Whoever would have normally sold the product or service no longer gets commission for the sale, yet he or she still has to process the paperwork and possibly even do the handson work. On top of that, the employees see the owner (or the person who did the trade) reap all the personal benefits of the trade, while the business as a whole gets nothing. And despite this extra work now on their plate, the employees still have to meet their usual goals and quotas. But what’s the motivation to do so when the owners or managers let product walk out the front door?

Employees often do what you do, not what you say.

When employees see the owner or other family members doing trades, they often take up the practice themselves. After all, why should the owner be the only one with a club membership, white teeth, or new carpeting in their home? Once trading escalates, your inventory gets depleted and your profits shrink. Ultimately, all employees start to think of the business as their personal pocketbook instead of as a standalone entity that has a responsibility to all employees and shareholders. •

You devalue your offerings.

When you trade, the value of the item or service (for both parties) diminishes. Because no money is being exchanged, neither party truly understands the real value of the product or service received. Even worse, when word spreads that you’re willing to work for trades (and it will), the value of what you do shrinks even more. Before you know it, a good number of your sales leads are from people interested in trading. And no company can pay its bills when trades dominate the workload. •

You can’t get equal service.

More often than not, trades leave someone with the short end of the stick. Because you’re getting the product or service for “free,” it’s difficult to complain when something isn’t quite right. Didn’t like your haircut? Want the yard service to do a better job weeding the garden? Didn’t like the last batch of organic produce? If you had paid full price for the product or service, you’d have no problem complaining. Yet when it’s a trade deal, you often feel that you can’t make demands. When that occurs, feelings of resentment grow, making the trade an unpleasant situation for at least one of the participants. •

End the Trades for Good

If someone really wants your product or service, and you really want theirs, then engage in each other’s offerings the right way—by going through the sales channels and paying for the deliverables. While trading is perceived as cheaper and easier, when you consider all the damage it does to your employees, your product or service’s value, and ultimately your business, you’ll see that trading is actually a very costly option. To keep your family business going strong, swap out the trading mentality before it’s too late.

5 Ways to Trim Equipment Operating Costs with Telematics Data is driving increased efficiency and profitability for many industries, and the construction industry is no exception. Today, telematics systems that collect and analyze thousands of data points related to equipment performance are helping fleet operators reduce fuel consumption, improve equipment utilization, optimize preventive maintenance schedules and much more.

Ongoing advances in telematics technology are boosting the benefits. Aftermarket telematics systems now monitor all equipment makes, models and years in a single application for easy tracking of mixed fleets. Newer construction-grade GPS tracking units not only withstand extreme off-road conditions but also help combat theft. Some telematics platforms bring both on- and off-road assets into the same interface, making it possible to see the location of the entire fleet on one real-time map as well as manage both asset types with a single tool. And so on.

One contractor, for example, slashed yearly diesel bills by $240,000 after idling reports in the company’s telematics system revealed that seven heavy excavators were left running all day during the winter whether they were working or not. Another saved hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in asset rental costs with the help of telematics equipment utilization reports showing that many company-owned machines were being underused, reducing rental needs.

Uncovering savings opportunities With GPS tracking units transmitting data from each asset over the cellular network and back-end software translating that data into maps and reports, telematics systems deliver a variety of tools for trimming fleet operating costs. The data can help fleet and equipment managers:

Reduce fuel consumption

Telematics systems can help conserve fuel by zeroing in on excessive idling, detecting unauthorized equipment use, and eliminating unnecessary mileage for on-road support vehicles. Idle reports, for example, document idle start and end times, duration and location for each piece of yellow iron, providing at-a-glance identification of the biggest fuel wasters. Geofencing can flag machines being used after hours indicating side jobs that burn excess fuel. In the case of combined on- and off-road platforms, telematics maps can A10

provide incremental fuel savings by ensuring that the closest service vehicle is dispatched to repair a disabled machine. With fuel accounting for 40% to 50% of an asset’s operating costs, these kinds of insights can play a pivotal role in tightening the fuel budget. In addition, in a new development, contractors can now use combined telematics/fuel management systems to detect fuel theft as well as eliminate unnecessary refueling trips. Hardware installed on both construction equipment and fuel trucks makes it possible to measure actual fuel burn for all assets in the fleet regardless of brand, type or age. The resulting reports enable fleet operators to identify excess fuel burn indicating fuel theft or fuel-related machine, maintenance or operator problems; optimize refueling schedules based on actual fuel consumption; benchmark fuel burn by both asset and jobsite to enable comparisons; and more.

improve asset allocation

Contractors can also use telematics to quickly pinpoint underutilized assets

VMAC Supports Pink Shirt Anti-Bullying Day Recently VMAC’s more than 80 coworkers donned bright pink shirts to demonstrate their support of Canada’s Anti-Bullying Day. Big smiles, lots of jokes and nary a grumble accompanied the brightly clad coworkers as they went about their busy day on Wednesday, February 27th. VMAC staff enthusiastically posed for individual photos and a big group shot, to demonstrate their pleasure at taking part in the unique event. “People really came together for this,” said a delighted Tanya Williams from VMAC’s Finance department, and the mastermind behind the idea to bring all VMAC workers together for this great awareness cause. Cries of “Show Your Pink!” sounded around the facility today as everyone admired the new, colorful uniform. Many of the production floor workers (machinists, assemblers etc.) went the extra mile and wore their bright pink shirts over their work coveralls and shop coats. A few coworkers took advantage of a black shirt with a pink design option. “I want to be able to wear this shirt regularly,” said Rick Duifhuis, VMAC’s Customer Care Manager.Staff who were away on the event day expressed disappointment that they could not participate on site for Pink Shirt Day. “I’ll wear my shirt at my training class,” said Marketing Coordinator, Carolyn Braun. “That way I’ll be there in spirit!” VMAC is a manufacturer of compact, powerful

New Curb Fox 5000T-HD offers more versatility

Heavier tracks allow the weight of the 5000T to be increased by almost 50%. This added traction and stability give the Curb Fox even greater versatility. Engine size is also increased to a 67HP diesel engine.

Reduces emissions and lowers TCO in independent testing Evans Cooling Systems, Inc., manufacturer of the only waterless engine coolant, reported that recent testing results by the Department of Sanitation in New York City and Emisstar LLC, a nationally recognized emissions testing firm, showed fuel economy improvement while lowering exhaust emissions. The objective of this evaluation was to report the results of a chassis dynamometer test program at the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) Vehicle Test Facility to assess the fuel economy, emissions, and temperature performance characteristics of Evans Waterless Heavy Duty Coolant. The test was performed on a diesel refuse collection truck, a Mack MP7 owned and operated by DSNY. Two computer controlled test configurations were selected to produce a statistically valid comparison of fuel economy and emissions performance data. The two test cycles reflected the New York City Garbage Truck cycle and the other reflected events that are normally found in refuse collection operations. The results were fuel economy improvement of 4.4 and 6.1 percent respectively, and a reduction of CO2 emissions of 4.3 and 5.6 percent respectively. Emisstar conducted testing in March of 2012, utilizing highly accurate and standard duty cycles with universal recognition across the industry.

The tracks on the Curb Fox 5000T-HD measure 74 inches long, by 9 inches wide and by 15 inches high. Overall machine weight of the 5000T with the heavy-duty tracks has been increased to 14,000 lbs. But the highly mobile CF5000T-HD still transports at legal width of 8.5 feet, and it still turns down to two feet. Production with the 5000T-HD has surpassed any other slipformer in its class. On 36 inch wide barrier pads, the Curb Fox

The CF5000T-HD will also slipform large curb and gutter, or channel, sections up to 39 inches wide in the offset position. It handles virtually any below pavement and uneven grade applications.

Evans waterless heavy duty coolant increases fuel economy

The improved Curb Fox 5000T-HD slipformer now paves wider and higher sections. With new heavy-duty tracks, added horsepower, and weight, the 5000T-HD slipforms pavement up to 10 feet wide, and barriers up to 39 inches high.

Pioneer Rim & Wheel has a reputation for large inventories, stability in service levels and programs, and the stability of our quality staff. In addition, we have competitive prices and quality products. Our financial strength allows us to provide creative, valueadded services and programs to our diverse customer base. Pioneer is successful because our team helps our customers realize all of the benefits these programs can deliver.

It was also noted that the test showed no negative impact to oil and transmission fluid temperatures. A complete copy of the report is available at www.evanscooling.com. “Evans waterless coolants have shown to improve fuel economy by as much as 3 – 9 percent, substantially reducing operating costs for fleets and owner operators,” according to Mike Tourville, Evans Marketing Director. “The report demonstrates that Evans can help reduce CO2 and particulate

emissions.” A feature of Evans Heavy Duty Coolant is its higher boiling point of 3750 F, significantly higher than water-based coolants — allowing the engine to safely operate at slightly higher temperatures. The huge separation of the boiling point from the operating temperature enables raising the fan-on temperature to 230° F, resulting in less fan-on time. The fans on heavy duty diesel engines draw a considerable amount of horsepower, using significant amounts of fuel.

Ervin Equipment Responds to Oil Boom With More New, Used Bottom Dump Trailers

MAY 2013 This listing is provided for the convenience of our readers. This publication assumes no liability for inaccuracy.

»Priority

A long-time supplier of a variety of specialty trailers, Ervin has seen the demand for bottom dump trailers spike in recent months. To continue to serve the growing needs of its customer base as a single source supplier for all trailer requirements, Ervin is expanding its selection to include bottom dump trailers as well as exploring other units requested by customers in the oil boom areas. Bottom dump, or belly dump, trailers are popular in areas where terrain or other job site restrictions such as overhead obstacles may pose safety risks with traditional rear dump trailers. This particular style of trailer is most commonly used in the north central, south central and western states, those areas currently involved in the oilboom. “Bottom dump trailers are the top choice for operators in aggregate, road building and oil field industries because they provide enhanced safety on uneven terrain and allow the operator to dump material in a linear heap while the truck is moving,” said John Connor, member of the Tank and Specialty Trailer Sales Division at Ervin Equipment. Ervin specializes in fulfilling customer needs – whether the need be new or used trailers. Ervin regularly scouts and secures

The Gallegos line also includes options of two- or three-axle trailers featuring the 5.6 ton 25-cubic yard Spider and the 12.5 ton 18-cubic-yard Set Bottom Dump Trailer. Ervin also works closely with CTS to sell new hot-mix insulated belly dump trailers for the asphalt industry. A unique insulation system provides a safe, simple, bottom dump solution for carrying hot mix asphalt. This is a feature few competing bottom dump trailer manufacturers can offer. When working non-asphalt jobs, these trailers can be used for hauling road base, gravel, sand and dirt. “As the demand for these types of trailers grows, Ervin’s continuing commitment to building partnerships like the ones we have with CTS and Gallegos and our continuing eye on researching the evolving demands of the market, leave us in an excellent position to quickly fulfill any fleet manager’s need for any type of trailer – even in large quantities,” said Connor.

Ervin Equipment is highly respected and well known in the industry, and has been supplying all types of trailers for more than 30 years, including specialty units such as the bottom dump trailers. Connor says what sets Ervin apart from other dealers is the devotion of its staff to figuring out customers’ needs, and then finding a trailer – or a fleet of trailers – that matches their applications, material requirements, locations and the typical traveled distances. “We like to hear what customers want,” said Connor. “We’re experts at finding equipment with their ideal configurations, from deck style to weight and axle specifications, to maximize their productivity and investment. We’re pros at listening, then finding a solution to any puzzle.” Ervin’s ability to buy and sell in large quantities boosts its purchasing power and enables the company to offer the best possible prices. This business model also offers fleet managers a huge selection when upgrading equipment. In addition, by staging basic models of trailers in multiple locations, Ervin is able to offer customers convenient, efficient access to equipment within a matter of days, whether they’re in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central or South America and beyond. Once Ervin finds a trailer, the company customizes it to meet the customer’s specifications and has it available within a matter of weeks. Call 877-873-6863 or visit www.ervinusa.com.
