Seal-O-Matic Paving Company This business runs hot and cold…from hot asphalt to cold planing.


Permit No. 68 Wichita, KS

PRSRT STD U.S. Postage

With an office a short distance from the Argosy Casino in Riverside, MO, one might think Mike Jaben of Seal-O-Matic Paving Company would be a regular. “Not me. I gamble every day running this business.” Seal-O-Matic is a paving contractor that got its start in 1974 when Jerry Jaben and a partner purchased what was then, a single crew paving operation. Hard work and a focus on the fundamentals of watching productivity and costs has grown Seal-O-Matic into a major contractor in Kansas City and the surrounding areas in northeast Kansas. The structure and growth of the business reads like many family-owned companies with other family members becoming active in the operation. Today, Mike Jaben, Jerry’s son, is the second generation and current president. Mike’s son, Miles, has entered the business continuing the family lineage.

The Work Seal-O-Matic specializes in new parking lot construction but completes contracts for street development, as well as maintenance and repair work. Jaben runs two paving crews full-time, one milling crew and one doing soil augmentation work. “In the last 10-years, we’ve seen more activity in fly ash soil amending for roadways and building pads,” Jaben said. “We’re also very active in cold milling for a number of contractors.” The Paving Market & Staying Competitive The majority of Seal-O-Matic’s jobs come by way of hard bid with a small percentage coming from negotiated contracts. “We operate in an extremely competitive bid environment with a simple win/loss outcome. You either price the job right or you don’t,” Jaben continued. A key element of staying competitive is deploying newer machines and technologies. “The operating efficiencies and productivity gains we see from running Cat are certainly a key part

of what keeps us in the game. Troy (Foley sales rep Troy Nitsche), keeps me tuned in.” Seal-O-Matic’s current fleet of some 21 Cat machines is broad and includes large and small pavers and compactors, a cold planer, along with motor graders, backhoes and skid steers. “We own some machines, lease a couple and rent when we need to,” Jaben said. Foley Partnership Seal-O-Matic has had a long relationship

with Cat through Nitsche and Foley’s product support team. “Foley brings a lot to the table, real value through options, flexibility and product support advice,” Jaben said. Jaben has written Foley Maintenance Plans on 15 machines in the fleet. “The maintenance plans minimize our risk by putting the maintenance with the experts at Foley,” Jaben continued. “They worked with us to structure a program where we pay for the maintenance during our peak months of operation. This helps with cash flow during the off-season,” Jaben added. While controlling maintenance costs is important, Jaben finds additional value in the scope of services Foley offers. “Foley runs annual, on-site safety and operator training which also figures into the cost-savings equation. Well-trained, safety-conscious employees are more productive and, of course, our most valuable assets.” Jaben concluded.

K Series Loaders Deliver Fuel Savings The K Series Small Wheel Loaders introduced last year offer significant fuel savings over previous models. The Tier IV Final models 924K, 930K and 938K can offer fuel savings of up to $500 monthly compared to some competitive machines. Ranger Feeders’ experience has been considerably better. Purchased in ’13, Ranger’s

These images show 2 different operator screens with total hours and fuel used and the calculated average lifetime GPH.

924K has 2,144 hours of total run time and a total lifetime fuel consumption of 2,709 gallons. The images below of the operator display show 1.3 gallons per hour (GPH) lifetime average fuel consumption. This cut Rangers’ fuel bill in half compared to their previous Cat® 924G. Ranger Feeders is a custom contract feed operation just east of Dighton, Kansas, with a 12,000 head capacity. Ranger runs this loader in their feed barn with a 4 ½ yard bucket that heaps to 5 yards. It is set up for a 4-minute auto shut down, one of a number of Caterpillar fuel savings features. Foley's Equipment Solutions Group remotely monitors and gathers performance data and operating information from machines in the field. A sample of 10 924Ks doing similar feed work shows low averages of 2.1 to 2.4 gallons/ hour. Results Definitely Vary Running machines in different environments, performing different functions throughout the day at a feeder compared to a construction site obviously has an impact on fuel burn. Foley's Equipment Solutions Group sampled 20 924Ks in both ag and construction settings.

This is money you can put in the bank and there’s even more value in the form of lower 5-year, 6,000-hour owning and operating costs versus key competitors. Your Foley sales rep can tell you more about the value of Cat K Series Wheel Loaders.

New Cat M Series 3 Motor Graders ®

The new Cat® M Series 3 motor graders —12M3, 140M3, 160M3 and their all-wheeldrive (AWD) counterparts — bring the latest emissions reduction technology to the most durable, productive and comfortable graders on the market. The new models offer greater fuel efficiency, more operator comfort and safety features, as well as enhanced serviceability. Fuel Efficiency and Emissions Reduction
 M Series 3 motor graders meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV emission standards using emissions reduction technology that is designed to be transparent, with no action required by the operator. There is no need to stop for regeneration. The system uses Caterpillar’s proven after-treatment solution with the addition of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). SCR utilizes Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), which can be conveniently filled from ground level when the machine is fueled. Because of improved fuel economy over Tier 4 Interim and efficient use of DEF, M Series 3 motor graders deliver excellent overall fluid efficiency. A new standard Economy (ECO) Mode can

be turned on to help save fuel by reducing engine speed so the machine works in a more efficient range. The average fuel savings is up to 10 percent, depending on the application. Integrated Technologies
 Cat Connect makes smart use of technology and services to help improve jobsite efficiency. M Series 3 motor graders are equipped with Product Link™, which helps fleet owners track location, hours, fuel usage, productivity, idle time and diagnostic codes through the online VisionLink® interface. M Series 3 machines also offer optional grade technologies like Cat Grade Control Cross Slope and Cat AccuGrade™ help operators work more efficiently and accurately. Comfort and Convenience
 In the cab, operators will find the hallmark Cat motor grader controls — two electronic joysticks that reduce arm movement by 78% to help lessen operator fatigue and enhance productivity. M Series 3 models also feature a redesigned message display located in the center console of the machine. The display puts Cat Grade Control Cross Slope information

conveniently in front of the operator, and also includes a DEF tank level gauge. Operators will also enjoy a more comfortable seat with heated and ventilated options, an optional seat belt indicator light and several convenient new storage bins located throughout the cab. An additional convenience feature can be found

in the engine compartment. New optional LED lights make it easier to service the machine in low light conditions. For more information about Cat M Series 3 Motor Graders and how they can improve the efficiency of your operation, contact your Foley Equipment sales representative.

D6R Certified Rebuild Completed for Pfeifer Dozer before


Watch a time-lapse video of the rebuild at Foley recently completed a Certified Power Train (CPT) rebuild on this ’06 D6R. The tractor is owned by Pfeifer Dozer & Well Service. The machine was purchased used in 2008 with 1,600 hours and delivered to Foley for the rebuild with 9,700 hours. It is one of 12 dozers used in Pfeifer’s well site preparation service. Pfeifer’s Cat fleet also includes four backhoe loaders and two wheel loaders. All major components on the D6R were in their original condition and the tractor, along with a majority of the other dozers in the fleet, has been under a Foley Maintenance Plan and the watchful eye of Craig Roy, Foley Product Support rep. “I think Craig was the first to see the machine when we bought it,” said Leon Pfeifer, a second-generation operator of the family business. “I’ve been working with Craig for 24 years so I’ve got a lot of trust in his judgment and recommendations. He’s always shot straight with me, tells me what’s wrong, what he’d recommend and the value in that recommendation. That sort of open

communication from Craig, Scott Tolley and the Foley bunch is worth a lot to me,” Pfeifer continued. Foley’s CPT program includes disassembly of the machine and rebuilding the engine, transmission, differential, final drive and torque converter. Other components can be added to the rebuild as needed. Pfeifer’s D6R left Foley with a rebuilt power train, hydraulic system, new coat of paint, like new interior, several other agreed upon repairs and a 3-year/5,000-hour power train warranty.

Understanding Diesel Exhaust Fluid

Take the call from your Foley ISR

Caterpillar’s response to Tier IV emission control standards includes a number of technologies and systems designed to meet the increasingly stringent requirements. One of those is Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). What is DEF and how does it work? Diesel exhaust fluid is a precisely mixed solution of 32.5% high purity, chemical grade urea and 67.5% deionized water. Diesel engines can be run with a lean burn, air-to-fuel ratio to ensure the full combustion of soot and to prevent the exhaust of unburnt fuel. The excess of oxygen leads to the generation of nitrogen oxides (NOx), EPA-recognized and regulated pollutants. Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) is used to reduce the amount of NOx released into the atmosphere by injecting DEF into the exhaust pipeline. The two components of DEF, ammonia and urea, chemically convert the pollutants to harmless water and nitrogen. How much DEF will I need? On Cat products equipped with a SCR system, DEF consumption is approximately 2-3% of fuel consumption depending on the product and application. The DEF tank has a 1:1 fill rate with the fuel tank. If fuel is added, DEF needs to be added. The DEF fill cap is an industry standard blue and easily identifiable on the product. Are there storage requirements? DEF should be stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. The ideal storage temperature for DEF is between 15ºF and 77ºF (-9ºC and 25ºC). It should not be exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time as the urea will decompose. Refer to ISO 22241-3 for further information regarding DEF handling, transportation and storage. Is DEF corrosive? Yes. DEF is corrosive to many different materials, proper dispensing equipment and practices must be utilized. Failure to use DEF specific tooling and fittings will result in corrosion and contamination of the DEF supply. As few as one incorrect fitting could contaminate the DEF supply and may

lead to emission system faults and engine shutdown. DEF spills should be cleaned immediately, and machine or engine surfaces should be wiped clean and rinsed with water. As always, refer to the MSDS for specific safety and handling guidelines. Are there recommendations for dispensing? Yes. Automatic dispensing units provide safe guards for DEF dispensing. Every Cat DEF tank is equipped with a magnet in the fill port. The automatic dispensing DEF nozzle has lever protection, if the magnet is not detected, DEF will not be dispensed. This prevents the DEF tank from being overfilled and DEF from being dispensed into the fuel tank, hydraulic oil tank, windshield washer tank, etc. Is contamination a concern? Yes. DEF cleanliness is extremely important as contaminants can degrade the life of DEF and SCR system components. Several points to consider are: • Clean the fill area prior to refilling • Avoid transfer containers when possible • If transfer containers are used, keep the container clean and dedicated for DEF Poor handling practices will contaminate the DEF supply and potentially lead to fault codes and emission system failures. For more information about diesel exhaust fluid, talk to your Foley Product Support rep.

Connecting Machines with Attachments for Maximum Productivity Making the right connection of machine and attachment can help maximize productivity on the jobsite. First, select a machine that allows easy exit and entry of the machine and offers good visibility from the operator’s seat to the attachment. Its coupler configuration should allow an operator unobstructed access to the seat and a clear view to the attachment. Second, determine the type of coupler the machine will need. The universal coupler interface and low profile side plates of mechanical quick couplers allow the most tools to match properly while keeping dirt and debris out. Two high-leverage handles serve to engage or disengage the tools. Hydraulic quick couplers have a rocker switch in the cab that controls two hydraulic cylinders, allowing the operator to change tools while in the cab. Hydraulic cylinders control the vertical wedge pins that lock the tool in place. High-Flow and Standard-Flow Hydraulics Hydraulic power not only provides power to the wheels, but it also operates the loader to enable lifting and tilting and runs the auxiliary circuit, which drives attachments. The criteria for “high-flow” or “standardflow” may differ from one manufacturer to another. High-flow machines designated “XPS” (33 gallons/minute at 4,050 psi) are capable of maintaining maximum pressure regardless of attachment speed or working conditions, at low or high idle. The typical flow for a standard-flow machine is 22 gallons per minute. Types of Attachments Attachments fall into two groups:

Not Your Everyday Cat Rental Machine.

fabricated and hydromechanical. Buckets and forks, which do not have moving parts controlled by the operator, are “fabricated” tools. Hydromechanical attachments include multi-purpose buckets, mulchers, hammers, augers, grapples, rakes and other attachments that are powered by the machine’s auxiliary hydraulics. Fabricated attachments are the most universal and a machine from one manufacturer can attach the buckets or forks made by another manufacturer with very little trouble, as they do not require additional hydraulics to operate. Hydromechanical attachments have more specific requirements. Therefore, most equipment manufacturers recommend that machines use the hydromechanical attachments from the same manufacturer. Why? Hydraulic hose hook-ups and fittings

are of the same strength and brand, ensuring a proper match and tight fit to reduce leaks and loss of pressure.

We caught this Cat® RM500 Road Reclaimer from Foley Rental in action on a parking lot jobsite. The contractor rented the machine from Foley Rental. A drum with teeth in the center of the machine rotates at a high speed, tearing through the asphalt to a consistency that can be used to make new asphalt. The Reclaimer is also used for fly ash or other types of soil

augmentation. Foley has three available for rent, along with just about any other Cat or non-Cat machine or piece of equipment you might need. You can see a short video of the Reclaimer in action on Foley’s Facebook page. If you need any help with rental machines or equipment, call (316) 943-4211 or log on to:

Attachments to Match Equipment manufacturers may offer a tool in a variety of configurations. Augers are a good example; direct drive or planetary drive augers are available for standard hydraulic flow machines. These configurations are designed to maximize the capabilities of the hydraulic circuit and are intended for medium-duty applications. A high-flow planetary-driven auger on a high-flow hydraulic machine would be appropriate for extreme-duty applications. The high-flow configuration is designed for maximum torque and the hydraulic hoses and seals are built to withstand the additional pressure and maintain a leak-free connection.

Multiple Machines Choosing attachments that can be operated by multiple machines may enhance flexibility and productivity on the jobsite. Two machines with similar hydraulic flow and horsepower, such as a large skid steer loader and a small wheel loader, can usually run most of the same hydromechanical attachments. Generally, a machine with high-flow hydraulics can operate attachments designed for standard-flow machines, but the reverse pairing is not recommended. A standard-flow machine’s hydraulic system will be unable to supply the flow needed to properly operate the tool. Foley Rental can further advise you about a particular machine-attachment pairing, call (316) 943-4211 or log on to

Fuel Polishing? More than 80 years ago, Caterpillar® was advising customers on this topic. Here is an excerpt from the 1931 operator’s manual for the Diesel Seventy.

Foley Power Solutions Hosts Engineering Conference Foley Power Solutions’ Consulting/System Engineers, David Dobbins, PE and Phil Wright, PE, hosted day-long engineering conferences at Foley’s Kansas City and Park City facilities on May 21 and 22. The annual conference brings together professionals from many engineering and architectural firms with responsibility for specifying and sourcing of power generation systems. Presentations from Caterpillar and Foley engineers cover topics that are important to the engineering community. These seminars provide valuable technical information with topics that are chosen

for their relevance to current engineering trends. Participants receive PD credit for their attendance. The annual event is always well-attended and an informative resource for professional engineers. If you would like to be notified of future events or have any questions about the design and specification of power generation systems, please contact:

Diesel fuel is less refined than gasoline. As a result, it contains more organic material and can actually give rise to the growth of algae. Most back-up electric power generators, (EPG), run on diesel fuel stored in tanks under the generator. Because EPG units spend a large amount of time not running, the fuel can go bad. Bad fuel means no backup power. A comprehensive EPG maintenance program includes a number of critical services, one of which is fuel polishing. This process thoroughly filters the fuel through a succession

Standby Power Should Be Ready Power Nature does not always offer fair warning as to when it will disrupt primary power supplies. And even when there is warning, last minute testing of backup equipment is not sufficient preparation. If testing reveals the need for a part, it may be too late for timely repairs. Often times we find out that a tornado is just one of the many reasons why standby power may be needed. And it is not just Mother Nature that is responsible – it could simply be a failure at a substation. Considering the impact the loss of primary power can have on your operation, it is clear you should conduct regular testing of standby power. The preferred testing procedure for a standby power system is to put the system under load by removing the normal source of power. You can do this by turning off the service entrance circuit breaker and operating for a short time on the standby generator.

This checks the operation of the Power Switchgear, Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS), Uninterruptible Power Supply (if installed), as well as the generator set. For more information on how to improve the readiness of your operation, contact your Foley rep.

EMSolutions Q&A An interview with Mark Schulke, Equipment Solutions Manager.

Q. A.

What is EMSolutions?

The simple explanation is a program that connects the machine and its operating data to Foley and the customer. “Operating data” includes anything from productivity of the machine to hydraulic fluid pressure or fault codes. EMSolutions provides products, services and tools to assist equipment owners in optimizing equipment performance, utilization and cost control, regardless of their individual repair and maintenance strategies.

Q. A.

Explain the value of this information.

There are two clear benefits: improve productivity and reduce operating expense. By monitoring machine alerts, oil and coolant samples and performing regular machine inspections, we can help to optimize the machine’s use. On the cost side, we can catch small problems before they become larger, costly repairs.


How does the machine communicate and who is monitoring it?


The equipment communicates via satellite or cellular depending upon the device. By device, I'm referring to the Product Link communication hardware. VisionLink is the software that presents the data to customers and to Foley to help determine performance and machine health. The machine health can be captured with the electronic information from the equipment along with, machine inspections and oil sample history. Foley’s Equipment Solutions Group monitors the machine data of connected machines. Depending on the level of EMSolutions service the customer has, this information can then be interpreted and forwarded to the customer with a recommendation from Foley’s Condition Monitoring Consultants.

Q. A.

Are there other EMSolutions services?

Yes, Foley offers four distinct programs broken into levels. Level 1 is called ACCESS and provides basic data and operating alerts. INFORM is Level 2 and includes fluid sampling, fleet health and performance reports. Level 3, ADVISE, builds on Level 2 by adding additional maintenance assistance and performance reporting, analysis and recommendations. Finally, Level 4, SUPPORT, adds a choice of Foley Maintenance Plans that free you to pay attention to growing your

business. Foley Product Support reps can provide the details of each Level and can recommend the program that works best for you based on your machine fleet and the type of work you do. This includes recommendations on what Level of reporting and service you need to increase productivity and lower maintenance costs. You can learn more about EMSolutions at
