IROCK Crushers Launches Finishing Screen IROCK Crushers’ new TS-518 mobile tracked screening plant gives medium to large producers a compact, heavy-duty and easy-to-move finishing screen with a high output. IROCK developed the screener with hydraulically powered components, including conveyors, which allow operators to quickly and easily move the machine into place for production in as little as 10 minutes. The TS-518 track screen delivers fast, easy maneuverability around the jobsite without the need for a trailer, saving time and hassle. The screening plant optimizes productivity with its 12-cubic-yard hopper and 129 horsepower CAT diesel engine. IROCK offers the TS-518 in two- or three-deck models. Both feature heavy-duty, highenergy, two-bearing screen boxes for sorting a wide range of materials, including aggregates, concrete

IROCK built the TS518 to withstand rugged day-to-day use. It features a solid, heavyduty steel chassis that provides ultimate durability onsite and during transportation. Maintenance is simple with the TS-518’s easy-to-access engine compartment that provides generous room for repairing or replacing components. IROCK offers several additional features to customize the unit for specific applications. An optional remote-controlled livehead effectively sizes and loosens heavy, dirty and sticky debris from product before it enters the hopper. This expedites the screening process and boosts productivity. Users choose from the standard tethered remote or IROCK’s optional wireless remote for greater flexibility around the site. A crusher chute gives producers the option to directly feed material into the hopper without removing the tipping grid. A single-shaft shredder is also available for topsoil screening. b

and sand. Contractors can sort as many as three sizes with the two-deck unit and four sizes using the threedeck model. Producers can change out the screen media on each deck for full control over end-product size. The screener’s feed conveyor offers an adjustable speed for efficient and effective material loading into the screen box. Producers can sort and stockpile as many as three different materials at once with the unit’s tail conveyor and two side conveyors. The tail conveyor quickly sorts material into stockpiles as high as 15 feet, 2 inches, while its two side conveyors offer an adjustable speed for fast sorting into stockpiles as high as 16 feet, 8 inches — among the highest in the industry. This high stockpile height allows operators to put more material under the belt before moving the screener to the next stockpile. Source: Irock

High Tech Is Here, Transforming Jobsites replenishing an older work force with new workers.” He adds that, “Adopting new technology will help solve these issues.” There already are some solutions available now. Personal-protective equipment ranging from apps to monitoring worker location to smart helmets that display information that help keep workers’ head safe are a few of these solutions. Paperless methods to communicate projects are proving very effective in enticing the younger generation who might have their eye on construction. Despite all the many reasons for adopting new technology on the jobsite there are still many contractors that are reluctant to take the tech leap. Haas explains that the basic challenge is changing how work is completed, the attitude of workers, and their overall habits. The idea of new technology will allow contractors to perform better, but it takes time to gain overall acceptance. Another big challenge that exists in the construction industry is all these emerging technologies

have a high price tag for adoption. However, the good news is that some solution providers are coming to market with ways to make this a little bit more affordable. For example, Hydro Mobile, a division of AGF Access Group, designs and manufactures mast climbing work platforms that contribute to creating hazard-free work environments. The company’s objective is to create platforms that increase worker safety and security. Vincent Dequoy, president, AGF Group, says Hydro Mobile’s mast climbing platforms can be used to increase productivity, and it has partnered with Construction Robotics’ SAM brick-laying machine to make a mason’s job on top of the platform safer, which will ultimately save time and labor downtime as a result of injury. “Instead of having a mason working at heights, the robot can do the work instead,” Dequoy says. Designed to work collaboratively with the mason, SAM, short for SemiAutomated Mason, is a

“At the end of the day, the expense of the technology can be offset by the savings in minimized insurance claims, and ultimately it creates a safer construction jobsite,” Dequoy says. But perhaps even greater than safety, productivity, and a better bottomline is the fact that the technology is here—and contractors will soon need to embrace it, or be left behind. Haas points out that this is coming whether contractors like it or not. The market is working on solutions to overcome the challenges. The contractors and the tech market need to have ongoing conversations about their needs. “There is more coming, there are more solutions to the issues on the jobsite,” Haas says. Using technology on the jobsite will become more common in the construction industry. There currently are many factors affecting quick adoption. It may take some time, but the jobsite will become a high-tech area where contractors and tech work simultaneously to create the buildings of the future. b

In the case of Esko Bionics, there is a robotic arm that will take the weight of heavy tools out of the hand of the contractor, thus becoming weightless in their hand. They can use it without expending as much energy as they would and, in turn, be able to work longer and more efficiently. It also creates a safer jobsite. But even more than that an added advantage to a higher tech job site is that there is incentive to the workers to stay. “Contractors who know that the company they are working for is offering tech like this will stay with them. There is better worker retention,” Haas says. Technology also ultimately leads to a better bottomline. Something else that has to be leveraged is costs. Haas says the cost at first to use the new technology will deter some contractors. However, there are ways to minimize expenses. As Dequoy says rentals are an affordable option to try the technology for a couple of months to see how it works, and this could eventually save a lot of expense in the long run.


Smartphones, drones, and 3D printing are changing rapidly, with advancements occurring all the time. And these are just a few examples of new technologies that are transforming the construction jobsite. New technology that once was met with fear and apprehension is being embraced in the office and at the jobsite. Innovations in equipment, tools, and materials are rapidly helping the construction sector become stronger, more productive, and even safer. And the good news is the technology is here today. However, there are a number of hurdles that still need to be addressed to move the construction industry forward. Challenges & Gaining Acceptance There are several predicaments that have yet to be addressed in order to advance many construction firms both large and small. Zach Haas, product manager, Esko Bionics explains, “The challenges facing the industry are: improving worker safety, increasing productivity, and

brick-laying robot designed and engineered by Construction Robotics. SAM can increase a mason’s productivity by three times while reducing lifting by 80%. The challenge is this technology can be expensive, which is why Dequoy says renting the equipment becomes an affordable way to try the technology to determine if it is worth the investment. Another way to reduce the high expense of high tech on the jobsite is by working with a company that provides services. For instance, many drone providers also offer drone services that way construction professionals don’t have a hefty hardware investment, and can try the tech at a lower price point. The Pay Off Safety, productivity, and improved bottomline: These are three key reasons to consider implementing new, and emerging technologies at the jobsite. Productivity, for one, is a huge benefit for contractors. Haas explains the benefits of the tech are solving issues on the jobsite and a better quality product being produced.

The Evolution Of GPS It seems that almost everything today has some sort of “smarts” in it. There is the smartphone, smartwatch, smart vests, smart shoes, smart cars, smart homes, and more. One piece of tech that isn’t new, but is widely used is GPS (global positioning systems). With the exception of the smart house, most

smart technology has some form of GPS. Having been around for a while, GPS is not new to the construction jobsite. However, there are new innovations coming that use GPS that will enhance the jobsite today and well into the future. The data that is gathered will change the way work is performed.

Smarter Projects One area where GPS is being used in a multitude of applications is the smarttransportation market. The smart-transportation market is expected to grow from $72.05 billion in 2016 to $220.76 billion by 2021, at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 25.1 percent from 2016 until 2021. The major drivers for an upsurge in demand for the smart-transportation market include rising demand of integrated security and safety for enhancing public safety and government ini-

tiative to incorporate smart technologies in the existing transportation infrastructure. Construction companies will help build this smarter transportation infrastructure. They will also come in contact with GPS at the jobsite. There already are challenges in the industry that are requiring the use of this technology. For instance, Kurt Nantkes, senior vice president, Zonar Systems, says, “The challenge in the industry currently is keeping up with other companies. You have to leverage the tools and technology you have to win jobs and increase your profit margins. Contractors also have to use the technology to meet regulations on a job.” GPS can help in many ways. For instance, it can be leveraged on equipment for location tracking purposes, but it is also help address other business challenges. Sten Kristensen, director of product management, Leica Geosystems, machine control division, says, “Some of the current challenges are project optimization and efficiency. Being able to streamline the project, connect the workflow, (and) digitizing the workflow will increase efficiency. This technology will provide workflow solutions and information to help the contractor.” Implementation Strategies While there are many opportunities for GPS at the jobsite, there are also some obstacles that are holding back widespread adoption of the technology. Nantkes says one challenge is changing management’s mind. The technology only works if you have a plan to use it and

integrate it into your daily job. He suggests applying the data to a construction firm’s advantage and making it actionable. This is perhaps one of the biggest hurdles to adoption for any new technology—gaining buy-in and acceptance, as well as incorporating the tech into everyday workflow. “As with any adoption of technology, changing habits of what you’re doing is the challenge,” Kristensen says. He adds, with GPS, it’s a different approach and method. It is hard to change habits and embrace the new technology. A lot of solutions are created to be almost exactly like the old method, but it is digital, which is faster than the old method. Once implementation and adoption can be achieved, using GPS on the construction jobsite has many benefits for all stakeholders. Nantkes points out that an immediate benefit is mitigating costs. The top three costs are labor, fuel, and maintenance costs. This technology helps contractors keep an eye on the fleet. It can help a contractor optimize their labor force. They can verify the plans with the data. This tech helps with fuel composition. It can also track unauthorized usage of the fleet, including reckless operation. There are benefits to using GPS on the equipment, and today it is more than just tracking—it provides a whole new level to machine control. Kristensen says having this type of technology— machine control technology—connects the different processes. There is more transparency on the jobsite. It is more efficient. There are cost and fuel sav-

August 2017 ings. Monitoring the job gives you cost savings. The technology allows worker fatigue to be reduced, as some of the processes they once performed are taken off of their plate. When it comes to this new approach and technology that is using GPS, contractors should be aware of a few things. For one, the explosion of solutions available on the market. Nantkes explains, “There are more vendors coming into the telematics space. Make sure you know who you are going with. Make sure they have a good support system for their solutions; all the pieces need to work together.” “The biggest value they need to know is with the technology, the processes get easier. The basic knowledge they have is now being guided by a digital landscape,” Kristensen adds. After learning about the advantages of GPS, there are a few factors to keep in mind. Nantkes says it is important to know that with the new administration there is opportunity for expansion, as there are additional upcoming projects in infrastructure and roads. Contractors need to leverage the technology to win bids. With the construction industry moving towards a digital future, integrating this type of technology at the jobsite will help contractors. GPS technology is one of the ways the construction industry will leverage more data at the jobsite in the future. As Kristensen says, “There is a need for real-time data and actionable data.” And this is available for the construction industry today. b Source: Conexpo

CLAAS Presents A New Generation Of The ARION 500 And 600 Series With the ARION 500 and 600 series, CLAAS offers versatile, all-round tractors with a high level of comfort and convenience which are equally suited to field and grassland work, transport and front-loader activities around the yard. CLAAS now presents a new generation of these proven series with enhanced equipment options, a wider range of engines and many new features. These include the new CIS+ system, the new CEBIS terminal, updated HEXASHIFT and CMATIC transmission functions and the PROACTIV front axle suspension, newly developed by CLAAS. Three equipment options available for the first time Thanks to the basic CIS, the new CIS+ and the deluxe CEBIS, three different equipment options are now available for models in the ARION 500 and 600 series for the very first time. All versions are available with a HEXASHIFT powershift transmission; alternatively, the CIS+ and CEBIS versions can be supplied with the continuously variable CMATIC transmission. The CIS version has been kept deliberately simple with mechanical spool valves and the CIS display, while

CIS+ offers electronic spool valves and the CIS colour display as standard. Both versions have the proven multifunction armrest with ELECTROPILOT four-way control lever and DRIVESTICK to operate the transmission. The CEBIS version goes even further, featuring the fully redesigned CEBIS terminal with 12-inch touch display and intuitive DIRECT ACCESS as well as the CMOTION multifunction control lever, which can be operated using just three fingers. Broader output range The power output range of the ARION series has been extended upwards and downwards. It now stretches from 125 hp in the ARION 510 to 185 or 205 hp in the ARION 660 thanks to CLAAS POWER MANAGEMENT (CPM). In the ARION 660, CPM provides a boost of up to 20 hp for transport and PTO work. All the ARION 500 models have a 4-cylinder engine, while the ARION 600 tractors have a 6-cylinder engine throughout. In the ARION 600 models the engine idling speed is automatically reduced from 800 to 650 rpm when the tractor is stationary, delivering additional fuel sav-

ings. All the engines meet the requirements of the Stage IV (comparable to Tier 4) emissions standard thanks to a combination of EGR (cooled exhaust gas recirculation), diesel particulate filter (DPF) and SCR catalytic converter (selective catalytic reduction). Despite the inclusion of an AdBlue tank, the diesel tank capacity has been increased slightly. HEXASHIFT powershift transmission with cruise control function and SMART STOP The proven HEXASHIFT powershift transmission in the new ARION series has undergone further development under practical conditions and offers a wide range of new additional functions. These include a cruise control function where the forward speed selected by the driver is maintained automatically at the optimum engine speed. The engine therefore operates independently of the current task and is highly fuel-efficient at all times. The integrated SMART STOP function makes for very convenient handling. When the brake pedal is pressed, the transmission disengages automatically – there is no need

In addition to the previous load-sensing hydraulics delivering 110 l/min, there is also a new version with 150 l/min flow rate. For the ARION 630 models and above, 42-inch rims and a maximum tyre diameter of 1.95 m are now available on request, allowing plenty of tractive power to be transferred to the ground while protecting the soil. The new CLAAS ARION 500 and 600 will be available from autumn of 2017. b Source: Claas

Forest Industry Applauds Fed’s Response To Softwood Duties Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) is pleased that the Government of Canada has launched initiatives to ensure the forest sector remains competitive in the face of the unwarranted duties implemented by the U.S. on softwood lumber. “We appreciate that the federal government is standing tall for Canadian forestry communities by launching a comprehensive package in the face of trade actions that we believe are without merit.” said Derek Nighbor, CEO of Forest Products Association of Canada. “This support will assist our efforts in continuing to transform our sector, diversify our markets, and support our workers.” The federal government announced $867 million in initiatives to support the forest sector including: • federal loans and loan guarantees to complement provincial efforts; • efforts to expand over-


seas markets and promote the diversification of Canadian wood products; • helping Indigenous communities and organizations improve the performance of their forest sector initiatives; • providing a temporary extension of the maximum period for WorkSharing agreements from 38 to 76 weeks in order to reduce layoffs; and • expanding support to help affected workers upgrade their skills and transition to new opportunities. “We are a proud Canadian industry with a track record of providing good jobs in rural and northern Canada, while sustainably managing our forests for generations to come,” added Nighbor. “These actions by the federal government are a critical step as we work to secure a strong forest sector of tomorrow.” b Source: FPAC View our online inventory on your mobile device

four-star hotel, restaurants and retail outlets. The nearly three-year project will require multiple contractors working together to finish all phases of construction. MTN Forming, Inc. of Bolton, Ontario, is tasked with completing structural formwork. Throughout the project, a variety of cranes will be employed to erect the buildings. However, a majority of the day-to-day lifting will be left to two cranes towering over the worksite for approximately two years. Complete Coverage On the Bridgewater project site, tower cranes fill the critical link between the ground and the multistory structures. They lift a wide variety of the construction materials, ranging from tools, concrete form work and rebar to structural steel, equipment and concrete. Careful planning for the number, type, height, jib length and capacity of the cranes must be considered, so the entire project site is covered where needed. MTN Forming relied on the expertise of Cropac Equipment Company and C&C Crane Services of Oakville, Ontario, to supply the right type of tower crane equipment, strategically positioned to efficiently serve all the company’s lifting needs. “We had just under two acres to cover, and we had to lift a variety of materials, includ-

ing precast steel reinforced with core slab,” mentions Kevin Carey, Owner of C&C Crane Services. “The heaviest planned lift was 20,000 lb (9,1 tonnes) at a 164-ft (50,0-m) radius.” In addition to what was lifted, the crane providers also had to consider ambient factors for selecting the best type of cranes for the job. “While being on the lake provides spectacular views for residents, we had to account for the high lakeside winds, lakeaffect snow and extreme cold for the project,” says Joel Hunt, sales representative for Cropac Equipment, Inc. “Freestanding heights came into play for the project to reduce set-up time and cost, and we chose the cranes that gave us the highest freestanding height capability.” When considering all factors – reach, capacity, freestanding height and re-

liability – Cropac and C&C Crane selected a combination of two Terex hammerhead tower crane models, the Terex SK 315 and SK 415. The SK 315 crane offers an 8.8- to 17.6-US ton (8- to 16-tonne) capacity, while the larger SK 415 crane provides a maximum lift capacity of 22 US tons (20 tonnes). “The SK 415 gives us the lift capacity of 20,503 lb (9,3 tonnes) at the 164-ft (50,0-m) radius we needed on this project,” says Carey. Cropac delivered the two cranes to the jobsite in September of 2016, and a crew of six workers from C&C Crane and Total Crane Rental, Bolton, Ontario, erected the two units on-site. To assist in tower assembly, crew members used a Terex AC 250-1 all terrain crane. The 300-US ton (250-tonne) capacity class mobile crane features a long 229.7-ft (70-m) main boom length, which al-

lowed crew members to quickly install the tower and jib sections for both cranes. Each of the heavy duty tower sections for both cranes measured 7.8 ft wide by 8 ft high by 19.5 ft long (2.4 m by 2.4 m by 5.9 m). The shorter SK 315 crane was built with 9 tower sections under the 131.3-ft (40-m) long jib for a total freestanding height of 178.8 ft (54.5 m). For the first phase of building construction, the SK 415 crane was built with 11 tower segments to a height of 214.9 ft (65.5 m) to clear the SK 315 crane when working at radius, and it included a 164-ft (50.0 m) jib. “Due to the sturdy construction of the tower segments,” says Hunt, “we were able to maximize freestanding height at the beginning of the construction cycle to expedite initial Continued on page 11

Kenworth Medium Duty Trucks Built With Pride In Canada


Kenworth medium duty trucks are locally-built at PACCAR’s Ste. Therese factory.

tory tour he took when his five T370s were being built was eye-opening. “I was so impressed,” he said. “The first thing you notice is the cleanliness – you just don’t expect a pristine environment within a manufacturing facility. Everything was so organized up and down the line, with assemblers checking their work to ensure quality. I was also impressed with some of the machinery – one piece would lift and flip the entire chassis to optimize ergonomics for workers. The paint bay, with all the robotics and environmental safeguards, was revolutionary in my opinion.” According to Pasquini, at the end of the tour, he even got to do the Dyno test on his own truck. “That really concluded a great day at the factory,” he said. “It was very special to see our own trucks being built, then actually running the engine on the Dyno for final inspection.” When Discount Car and Truck Rentals’ first truck was delivered, Pasquini said they did a special promotion to announce the trucks to its customers. “It showcased how we were a Quebec company, with a Quebec-built Kenworth and a Quebec body. It was our local pride showing.” Pasquini said the Kenworth T370s have been a big hit with customers. “So much that we have another eight on order,” he said. b

With more than 200,000 square-feet of exhibit space, and nearly 300 exhibitors, the Canadian trucking community descended upon Montreal and the ExpoCam 2017. While Kenworth’s medium and heavy duty trucks were on display inside the Place Bonaventure, its medium duty line also travelled the streets of Montreal, a short drive from where they were produced. “Kenworth medium duty trucks are locally built with a lot of pride at PACCAR’s Ste. Therese factory,” said Mike Parent, general manager of Kenworth Montreal, which had sent a T370 dump to join a T680 76-inch sleeper, T880 dump and W900L to ExpoCam 2017. “We hold customer events at the factory and showcase the amount of care and quality built into every Kenworth medium duty conventional. A

quality-designed and built truck is our competitive advantage, and a factory tour reinforces that message.” According to Chakib Toubal-Seghir, PACCAR Ste. Therese plant manager, more than 167,000 medium duty trucks have been built at the factory since 1999, and innovations and quality improvements continue to be made. “We never stop advancing our processes,” he said. “We have a dedicated workforce, augmented with the precision of robotics. Last year, we had more than 1,110 visitors and customers visit our factory. Our employees are always very proud to work in front of customers, to showcase the level of expertise and care that goes into the build of the trucks.” For William Pasquini, sales and purchase manager at Discount Car and Truck Rentals, the fac- Source: Paccar

lent job in planning the best placement of each crane to optimize efficiency for covering the entire work area with the two cranes. Work on the $210 million complex is quickly progressing with the formwork shell beginning to reach toward the sky. The two Terex tower cranes are proving their worth, working in all kinds of weather conditions – sun, rain and snow – to help make sure workers have the tools they need to keep on schedule. We selected these cranes because of their reliability, low-maintenance history and service,” comments Carey. “Both the SK 315 and SK 415 have excellent proven track records in all aspects, especially lifting performance and operator satisfaction.” b Source: Terex

St. Paul, one-half of Minnesota’s twin cities rose from the steep bluffs where the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers collide. Once a quiet frontier trading post, the city was soon transformed into an industrial hub. The transition sprouted new enterprises, such as West Publishing Company, which today remains the nation’s largest producer of academic and law books. The lawless also flocked to the city. As described by infamous gangster Al Karpis: “If you were looking for a guy you hadn’t seen for a few months, you usually thought of two places: prison or St. Paul.” Fellow outlaws, such as Baby Face Nelson and Machine Gun Kelly notoriously used the natural caves tunneling under the city as hideouts. The former West Publishing complex, built in 1886, and the Ramsey County Adult Detention Centre (ADC), built in 1979, occupied three blocks in downtown St. Paul. The local landmarks became disused when West Publishing relocated to the suburbs. The city strained for urban housing, but potential buyers balked the risks of developing such large structures. Instead, the council voted to demolish the vacant complex, market the site, and recoup the costs from future income from the new development, projected at $150 million. When the bidding process was complete, Rachel Contracting, based in St. Michael, Minnesota, was awarded the

$15 million, 94,666 square yards (852,000 ft2) demolition contract. Building On The Bluff Established in 2006, Rachel Contracting specializes in earthwork, demolition, utilities and specialty contracting. “We take the jobs that are unusual, the projects others don’t want,” says CEO Don Rachel. Work began in November 2015 on the 10-story, seven-building complex. The job covered a variety of applications – from asbestos abatement and excavation, and total demolition to bluff stabilization and erecting a cast-in-place concrete retaining wall along Kellogg Boulevard, a main road in the city’s centre. “The first step was to abate all hazardous materials, including asbestos,” says Nick Bartemio, project manager for Rachel Contracting, adding that more asbestos was uncovered than initially anticipated by the pre-engineering studies. Before any exterior demolition could begin in earnest, bluff stabilization was required to shore up the back wall facing Kellogg Boulevard. Rachel completed this by drilling 5,486 linear meters (18,000 ft) of grouted rock bolt anchors into the face of the bluff. After demolition is completed, Rachel Contracting will build a 457-609 mm (18-24 in) thick retaining wall using 2,777 square yards (25,000 ft2) of castin-place concrete along Kellogg Boulevard. The height of the structure, plus the location of the site lent itself to being one of the most challenging demolition projects in the history of Rachel Contracting. “The site sits between a main downtown artery and is nine meters (30 ft) from an active rail line on the Mississippi River-facing side,” says Mark Kraemer, vice president of field operations for Rachel Contracting. “We knew going into the bid that we could not bring it down by explosives, so the only option was to use a high reach demolition excavator,” Kraemer adds. “We looked at competing brands, but

we felt more comfortable going with the Volvo. The support from local dealer Nuss Truck & Equipment was a big factor in our decision. We had a short lead time, and Nuss was able to provide the machine very quickly and were on site for set-up and training our operators.” High Reach, High Rewards “The EC700CHR was chosen for its reach and weight capacities,” says Jim Soderbeck, field sales manager at Nuss. The high-reach machine has a maximum pin height of 32 meters (105 ft) with boom extension and is fitted with a Genesis GDT Razer three tonne (7,000 lb) shear. The matched powertrain and hydraulics supply ample power for the shear to fracture concrete and snip rebar at height, and safely lower it to the ground. “The high reach allows us to bring this job down in a much more controlled fashion. On a building like this, with thick concrete columns wrapped around steel I-beams, we can cut through them with the shear without jeopardizing the safety of the building, pedestrians and vehicular traffic,” says Randy Shultz, general demolition superintendent at Rachel Contracting. Reinforced concrete slabs range in size up to 304 mm (12 in) in thickness. The EC700CHR high reach excavator’s added value is its ability to convert to a standard excavator efficiently. The Volvopatented modular joint design, located in front of the boom cylinders has a self-aligning, hydraulic push-pull pin system that makes changing the boom swift and simple. These features contribute to one less machine on site and keep the EC700CHR from becoming idle. The high reach boom is converted to a standard boom every two to three days and is paired with a Genesis DemoPro 900 for concrete clean-up. “The conversion enables the machine to work with a 5.4 tonne (12,000 lb) attachment and use at work heights of18-20 meters (60-65 ft),” says Kraemer.


Tactical Takedown

The EC700CHR was chosen for its reach and weight capacities. “That height level is our bread-and-butter here in the Midwest. We have it down to less than an hour with two people. Volvo did an excellent job making this machine come apart and reassemble easily.” Rachel Contracting also uses a Genesis GDR 300 demolition recycler and LXP® 300 Logix Processor fitted on three 36 tonne (80,000 lb) excavators for sorting and processing. Over 85 percent of the compound is being recycled and left on site. All concrete is crushed for base or backfill. The steel and ferrous, and nonferrous metals are recycled and the remainder sent to the landfill. Zero To 100 The on-going work, scheduled to complete later in 2017 demonstrates the power of innovation and a tactical approach, developed by Don Rachel and partners Jerry Rachel, Mark Kraemer and Matt Coz. “We went from zero to $100 million in projects over 10 years, and today, we have over 220 employees,” says Rachel. Rachel owes his success to the right employees and equipment. “This is a very large job in our market and intrigued us for a lot of different reasons, including the history and the challenge of the bluffs. The demo portion is typical

for us, but the anchor tie-ins under the city and retaining wall were unusual.” Unusual, but not out of scope, as Rachel Contracting has an entire division devoted to earthwork, soil remediation and stabilization. Most jobs are concentrated in the upper Midwest. Recent demolition projects include the 93,000 square meter (1 million ft2) 3M plant in Beacon Bluff and the 112,000 square meter (1.2 million ft2) Brookdale Mall in Brooklyn Centre, Minnesota. Rachel Contracting has earned a spot in ENR’s Top 600 Specialty Contractors for the past five years and regularly donates to local schools and the community. “We have been gifted a lot and we owe it back,” says Rachel, whose efforts did not go unnoticed. In 2016, Rachel was named the Upper Midwest Region Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year. The award recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. And with Volvo CE in Rachel Construction’s machine line-up, the sky is the limit. b Source: Volvo

Powering Up Waste Disposal

August 2017

Horst called on Highway Equipment & Supply to purchase an EC460C for the expansion.


n average, the United States generates 230 million tonnes of municipal solid waste annually. In the US, there are 2,000 active landfills and 78 waste-toenergy facilities. The York County Solid Waste and Refuse Authority (Authority) began investigating alternative waste disposal options in the mid-80’s; ultimately selecting wasteto-energy technology – a proven environmentally sound and economically viable method of waste management. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), using waste-to-energy facilities reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from waste management activities. The agency estimates that for every ton of waste processed at a waste-toenergy facility, emissions of approximately one ton of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e) are avoided.

In 2016, the York County Resource Recovery Centre (RRC) processed 431,412 tonnes of waste. This means that GHG emissions of approximately 431,412 tonnes of CO2e were avoided. In the mid-1980’s, construction of the Authority’s waste-to-energy facility began, and in 1989, the RRC began processing municipal solid waste. Today, the RRC serves the waste management needs of more than 443,000 residents and also processes compatible residual (industrial) waste. The RCC converts waste into a smaller volume of ash and produces clean, renewable energy. Since the facility began its operations, more than 11 million tonnes of municipal solid waste have been converted into five million megawatt hours (MWh) of energy. To continue to ensure the facility maintains high performance and safety

standards, as well as reliable operations for decades to come, the Authority and Covanta York Renewable Energy Systems (Covanta), operator of the RCC, announced the extension of their long-term operation and maintenance agreement in 2015 through to 2035. The agreement addresses investing in improvements that will extend the facility’s useful life and bring continued long-term stability to York County’s municipal waste management infrastructure. Facility improvements include: expanding the tipping floor and waste storage pit, reconfiguring site roadways, relocating and expanding the scalehouse, constructing a customer convenience area, relocating the public recycling and dropoff centre and constructing a new education centre. Targeted for completion in 2018, the $62 million


With the help of Volvo excavators, a waste-to-energy facility in Pennsylvania is undertaking significant site improvement efforts to lay the foundation for enhanced site safety and efficiency as well as establishing the infrastructure needed to manage increased waste capacity in the future. project is progressing well, with building work already passing the 66% completion point. Global Problem, Local Solution Horst Excavating was given the task of earthwork and site preparation on the four-phase project. This includes overall sitework, site demolition, erosion and sedimentation, underground utility work and stone and asphalt paving. In total, they will move more than 300,000 yd3 of material. Established in 1961 as part of Horst Group, Horst Excavating carved out a name for itself in the industry as an earthworks expert. The company specializes in sitework, underground utility service, land clearing, demolition, soil remediation and erosion control for municipal infrastructure, commercial buildings, educational facilities and windfarms. “Construction on the

three year site improvement project began in 2015 and we’re now in the third phase,” says Brian Kane, vice president of Horst Excavating. “Next, we will construct the expanded refuse pit, including retaining walls and crane bay extension.” No Time To Waste Though progressing at an impressive speed, the site improvement project is happening while the facility is still operating 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, which poses a challenge for Horst when excavating the pit. “To expedite the process, we detonated explosives in the pit, making the excavation more manageable,” explains Kane. “As this is a 24-hour operation, we made more, smaller shots to minimize vibration.” Working to excavate the material is a pair of Volvo excavators. Horst is mining 30,000 yd3 of rock from the pit, excavating nearly

five stories deep. “Right now we are blasting and hammering through a lot of deep, hard limestone,” says Russ Outman, site superintendent for Horst Excavating. “It puts a strain on the equipment, which is running at 10 hours a day non-stop.” For high quality, durable equipment, Horst Excavating looked to local Volvo dealer, Highway Equipment & Supply. After a trip to the US equipment exhibition CONEXPO in 2014, the company purchased its first Volvo excavators, an EC340D followed by an EC350E. When it was time to replace additional fleet units, Horst called on Highway Equipment & Supply to purchase an EC460C for the expansion project. Expanding Its Waste Line The EC350E excavator is equipped with a high tensile reinforced boom. A Volvo 3.5 yd3 bucket is fitted to the EC350E, proContinued on page 15

viding consistent power and high breakout force to load the blasted rock. The EC460 is also at work on the site, powering a Genesis GH18NPK 8000 lb-ft hammer to chisel large chunks of limestone that frame the pit. “Our Volvo excavators have the right power-to-weight ratio to cover our typical working range,” says Kane. The RRC saves the equivalent of approximately 13 acres of land a year that otherwise would have been consumed by landfilling garbage. With all three


The EC350E excavator is equipped with a high tensile reinforced boom. of the facility’s combustion units operating, the RRC generates enough electricity every minute of every day to power more than 20,000 homes. Additional recyclables from the metals are extracted from the ash by-product. To put this into perspective, every 10 truckloads of trash that are managed at the RRC produce one truckload of residual ash. Volvo CE itself is enjoying the benefits of this facility, with the company’s North American site – in nearby Shippensburg – using it to handle its waste.

“Since 2016, we’ve diverted nearly all (90%) of Volvo CE’s Shippensburg waste from landfills, up from 49% in 2014,” explains Scott Robertson, environmental consultant with Waste Management Services. “This has helped Volvo CE achieve a 40% reduction in waste handling costs. In 2017, we finally met our goal of ‘zero landfill’ through an increased focus on recycling and utilizing the Authority for all of our otherwise non-recyclable wastes.” b Source: Volvo

Screening and crushing industry leader McCloskey International has continued its expansion over the past three years, with close to 35% growth overall, increased market share, major investments in its manufacturing facilities, and the introduction of a new division.
