About Lawrence Equipment Our Business
Lawrence Equipment traces its beginnings to 1932 when Weldon T. Lawrence, Sr. formed a moving and storage company in Roanoke, Virginia called Lawrence Transfer and Storage Corporation. Ten years later, they joined the United Van Lines family. Weldon T. Lawrence, Jr. succeeded his father as president in 1950 and began building a substantial operation by growing the company’s sales and by acquiring companies throughout Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. In September 1992, Weldon S. “Chip” Lawrence was named president, and his father remained as chairman. Today, Lawrence is one of the largest moving and storage operations in the United States and holds interstate authority in 48 states and the District of Columbia. The company is still affiliated with United Van Lines and was recently honored as a Top Producer. In 2000 Lawrence Transportation Systems branched into the window manufacturing business by acquiring Rusco Window Company, which has been operating since 1947. Additional products have been added to Rusco’s line since then, which include aluminum storm windows and doors, improved vinyl windows, aluminum awnings and canopies, vinyl siding, soffit and gutter products, and sunrooms. Locally, Rusco provides its products directly to homeowners in the Roanoke Valley but has developed a distributor network throughout a five state area to represent its products. Its equipment business was born when Lawrence Equipment, a new division, became a distributor for Case construction equipment in 2003. Three years later, Case IH agricultural equipment was added. Today, there are four locations providing Case equipment across the state of Virginia. The company has chosen equipment brands that perform all day, every day, and they always deliver excellent parts and service support. On January 1, 1998 Chip Lawrence established an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) and gave 48% of the Company, valued at $4.5 million, to the employees. Nearly seven years later in December 2004, Lawrence Transportation Systems, Inc. purchased the remaining shares from Chip Lawrence, and the company became 100% employee owned. Today, Lawrence Equipment’s employees think and act like owners… because they are. They are committed to providing the highest level of customer service, because they understand that excellent service will ensure the success of their company.

Reduce downtime with Scheduled Maintenance Inspections by our factory trained technicians On Time Inspections
You can count on Lawrence 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.
■ Documented maintenance for warranty assurance ■ On-site or in our shop
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

■ 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 Lawrence 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. 6
• 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 for 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.
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
Lawrence 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.
The fluid analysis laboratories that Lawrence Equipment uses are ISO 17025 A2LA accredited, which is the highest level of quality certification for testing laboratories by the American Association for Laboratory 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, Lawrence Equipment can provide guidance on necessary repairs and filter and oil change intervals.

Filters Extensive Inventory
Lawrence 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 Lawrence Equipment—fuel filters, lube filters, air filters, hydraulic filters, and coolant filters.
■ Clean fluids are critical to optimum equipment performance ■ Changing filters regularly avoids contamination of fluids
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.

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 the 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?
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?
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.
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.
Discounts are sometimes available for equipment covered by government contracts. Ask if your equipment qualifies. * 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.
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 Lawrence 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.
