About Diamond Equipment Our Family Business
Terry’s sons, Dave and John, grew up in the family business, spending summers helping out in the parts department. After a 5-year stint on the pro golf circuit, Dave joined the sales team in 1985. John began working with the sales group a few years later. By 1996, Terry was ready to retire, and he passed along the company reins to Dave.
Diamond Equipment traces its beginnings to 1969 when Terry Clement opened a Case Construction equipment dealership in Evansville, IN. He had been selling agriculture and construction equipment and embraced the opportunity to establish his own business.
Over the years, the company has expanded to five locations. Whenever there was an area with service needs that was adjacent to one of their existing territories, Diamond extended its service area by opening a new location. They have always been fortunate in finding excellent managers who share the same sort of attitudes toward customers that the Clements have—Simply treat customers as you would like to be treated, provide a high level of service, and always be honest and fair. Like most successful family businesses, Diamond Equipment has a loyal group of employees who have been with the company for many years. They all strive to achieve zero downtime for their customers. The distinction between customer and friend has blurred while Diamond has been building its business, because they do treat customers the same way they treat friends—with kindness, consideration and respect.
Maintaining a policy of zero downtime, Diamond Equipment provides same day parts delivery and on-site service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Technicians undergo extensive training and are certified for any equipment they service. They routinely troubleshoot a situation to identify problems and quickly offer solutions to enhance your equipment’s performance.
Diamond Equipment’s core customer base began with smaller, mom and pop companies. Many of these companies have grown, as Diamond has, and customers now range in size from small start ups to very large companies, many of which are second and third generation family businesses. Customers represent a wide range of businesses— construction companies, plumbing contractors, dairies, road builders, excavating contractors, utility contractors, landscapers, government agencies, quarries and aggregate processors, rental companies, farmers, recyclers and waste handlers, railroad and municipality crews, and all sorts of industries with warehouses and routine maintenance needs.
When the opportunity arose, Diamond Equipment expanded their equipment lines in ways that help customers with their businesses. The brands of equipment we carry include construction equipment from Case, Hyundai and Takeuchi, Kobelco excavators, Terex trucks, Dynapac rollers and pavers, JLG lifts, Noram motor graders, Allied hammers, and a wide variety of ground engaging tools and attachments.

You can count on Diamond Equipment to complete Scheduled Maintenance Inspections for your equipment to avoid downtime and keep your machines performing their best. Most equipment manufacturers require some sort of maintenance every 500 hours. We can verify service hours periodically to assure that timely maintenance activities are performed to meet warranty coverage requirements.
Factory Trained Technicians
All machines are serviced by our factory trained technicians, on-site or in our shops. And we don’t only service the equipment we sell—we can service any brand that’s in your fleet.
Each type of equipment has a thorough inspection regimen that is strictly followed to ensure that all appropriate equipment functions are inspected to identify any possible problems. Ask about a fluid analysis with each inspection to identify potential issues, based on the presence of metals and contaminants in the machine’s fluids.
■ Factory trained technicians ■ Documented maintenance for warranty assurance ■ Any brand ■ On-site or in our shop
Custom Hydraulic Inspections
Even the most experienced operators can’t detect hydraulic system efficiency loss until it reaches 16 – 20%. To protect against such losses, we recommend that machines depending on efficient hydraulic systems undergo a Custom Hydraulic Service inspection every 12 months or 2,000 hours. The service includes engine and hydraulic system performance tests, hydraulic oil sampling, and a walkaround inspection. All results are compared against new machines to detect wear in your components and repair minor problems before a major failure occurs. Our scheduled machine inspections are available for the following equipment: Equipment

Fluid Analysis Analyzing system fluids reveals actual internal conditions ■ Contaminant levels predict component failures accurately ■ Maintenance intervals can be dictated by contaminant levels in fluids to determine when to replace filters and change oil ■ Oil analysis records prove your equipment has been maintained and help increase resale value ■ Any make, any model
Diamond Equipment offers fluid analysis kits to monitor the internal health of your equipment. Performing fluid analysis at regular intervals ensures that potential problems will be spotted as early as possible.
What is Fluid Analysis?
By extracting fluids from several areas in your equipment and analyzing the level of contaminants in the fluids, potential problems with component failure can actually be predicted. As components wear, microscopic pieces will appear in the fluids throughout the machine’s parts. By analyzing which metals are appearing where and in what concentration, the remaining life of each component can actually be predicted, so that you can anticipate when major repairs may be necessary.
Accreditation. You can be confident that the fluid analysis results are accurate, repeatable, and backed by stringent laboratory standards.
Manufacturers recommend sampling intervals for each model. Also consider how critical each piece of equipment is to your production in determining sampling frequency. You may want to reduce the hours between sampling periods for equipment operating under more stressful conditions.
Service and Repair Recommendations
By evaluating the results of your machine’s fluid analysis, Diamond Equipment can provide guidance on necessary repairs and filter and oil change intervals.
The fluid analysis laboratories that Diamond Equipment uses are ISO 17025 A2LA accredited, which is the highest level of quality certification for testing laboratories by the American Association for Laboratory
■ Schedule inspections at regular intervals to spot problems ■ Monitor your undercarriage routinely ■ Don’t delay repairs or replacements on undercarriage components ■ Install CELT to double wear life ■ Any make, any model
Undercarriage Maintenance Diamond Equipment’s technicians are trained to identify undercarriage problems before major repairs are required. By measuring the thickness of the undercarriage components, our technicians can predict how long your undercarriage will last before replacements are needed. During preventive maintenance service, we include undercarriage evaluations at no additional charge.
• Keep the undercarriage clean of mud and debris The accumulation of mud and dirt around the undercarriage can interfere with proper operation by changing the pitch, which changes the component engagement and leads to faster wear. Knock away any debris every day after use, then wash the tracks thoroughly with water.
Undercarriage Tips to Reduce Wear
• Minimize high operating speeds Higher speeds cause more wear on the undercarriage. Use the slowest possible operating speed for the job.
Extend the life of your undercarriage by following a few simple rules. • Double Wear Life with CELT CELT is Case Extended Life Track that can more than double the wear life of a standard lubricated track design. With CELT, a hardened bushing is placed over a standard type track bushing. With this configuration, the larger bushing is free to rotate on the smaller bushing, reducing the scrubbing action between the bushing and the sprocket, which doubles the wear life. • Adjust the track for correct tension Loose tracks can detrack. Over-tightening can cause power loss, excessive roller and idler wear, and could tear the tracks. Refer to your operator’s manual for track inspection and tensioning procedures. • Use the narrowest shoe possible Wider shoes can cause problems maneuvering by sticking out farther and making it more difficult to turn. Wider shoes may be necessary, however, to keep the machine from sinking in extremely wet conditions. 8
• Alternate the turning direction Continuous turning to the same side can cause asymmetrical wear and accelerate wear for sprocket teeth, track tread, guide lugs and roller flanges. • Inspect your equipment visually every day for signs of wear Check for cracks, bends and breaks on components. Look or wear on bushings, sprockets and rollers. If you see any components that are shiny, there’s probably an alignment problem. Make sure nuts and bolts are not loose, which can cause abnormal wear by interfering with proper movement of parts. • Control track spinning when filling the bucket Use loader hydraulics to penetrate into the material to reduce track spinning. Unnecessary spinning of the tracks can accelerate wear and cause cuts in the tracks.

Extended Warranties & Damage Insurance Protect your equipment with an extended warranty or physical damage insurance
What is an extended warranty?
An extended warranty provides a longer warranty on your machine beyond the period that comes with original warranty for your equipment. It includes all the genuine OEM parts and the service performed by factory trained technicians that your original warranty covers.
Why buy an extended warranty?
Finance It—Payments can be financed through retail installment contracts. Charge It—For Case equipment, you can charge your extended warranty to your CNH Revolving Account. Ask about a credit line increase to accommodate your extended warranty payments. Lease It—Add extended warranty to your lease agreement.
It protects you against the expense of unexpected repairs. Also, resale value is higher, because the plan can usually be transferred to the new owner.
What equipment is eligible?
* A surcharge may be added to the new equipment rate once the warranty period expires, and failures that occur within the first 30 days after registration may not eligible for reimbursements. ** Reimbursement rates vary with the type of equipment and equipment manufacturer.
New Equipment Add your extended warranty to your financing when you purchase any eligible equipment. You can purchase your extended warranty any time during the warranty period at standard new equipment rates. You can even add an extended warranty up to four months after the base warranty expires*. New equipment plans can be transferred to a new owner, which can boost its resale value.
Discounts are sometimes available for equipment covered by government contracts. Ask if your equipment qualifies.
Used Equipment Used equipment that is less than seven years old and has less than 7,000 hours at the time of registration** can usually be covered. An oil test for equipment with over 1,000 hours determines final eligibility. Most brands are eligible for coverage.
Insurance Options Physical Damage Insurance (PDI)
PDI provides comprehensive coverage to repair or replace eligible equipment in the event of direct physical loss or damage. Covered perils include, but are not limited to: collision, overturns, earthquake, theft, fire, tornado, flood, vandalism, hail, wind, ingestion of foreign objects, and vermin infestation.
Loss Damage Waiver
When renting equipment, you are responsible for any damage that occurs to the unit during the rental period. Most brands of new and used construction equipment rented through Diamond Equipment are eligible for Loss Damage Waiver, which helps protect rented equipment against most causes of direct loss or damage during the period of an equipment rental contract. Covered perils include, but are not limited to: collision, overturns, earthquake, theft, fire, tornado, flood, vandalism, hail, and wind. Note: Ingestion of foreign objects is not a covered peril.

■ Clean fluids are critical to optimum equipment performance ■ Changing filters regularly avoids contamination of fluids
Diamond Equipment maintains an extensive inventory of filters, ready to service your equipment on schedule. It’s important to change filters regularly for optimum performance.
All your equipment filters are available at Diamond Equipment—fuel filters, lube filters, air filters, hydraulic filters, and coolant filters.
All of our filters meet or exceed requirements specified by your machine’s manufacturer. We have filters for any make, any model.
Check filters regularly for efficient engine operation Your engine works harder and runs hotter with a clogged filter, which makes it more difficult for the fuel to pass through it. The additional stress causes the engine to wear down faster. Check filters if your oil consumption increases When your engine burns more oil than normal, it is possible that dust and dirt is clogging the filter. It may be necessary to change the oil and the filter. Dusty conditions can cause serious damage While changing the oil and filter, check the condition of the crank bearings. If scarred badly, they may need to be replaced. Also check oil rings and pistons for damage. Keep air filters dry Air filters fail quickly when they pick up moisture. If they are exposed to moisture, check them frequently. Use the correct filters With incorrect filters, there can be gaps, through which dust can enter.
