On shop.cat.com, retail prices for the Cat 950 GC ranged from $225,824 to $239,837, depending on the dealer.

All U.S. Cat dealers are now offering online retail-pricing on several Cat machines throughout its lineup, the culmination of a two-year initiative the company first revealed last fall.

Cat says it's offering retail pricing—which offers customers a specific, set price on a machine—through its dealers on shop.cat.com.

Initially created as a compact equipment initiative, retail prices are now displayed for select machines in most of Cat's major lines. Beyond the compact machine stable of compact track loaders, skid steers, mini excavators and compact wheel loaders, the website is offering retail pricing on a limited number of excavators and wheel loaders, in addition to one backhoe, compactor and utility vehicle.

Still absent are dozers and articulated trucks.

Retail offerings are dealer-specific. For most large machines, after you select a machine category — say excavators — you must first enter your location to view offers. You are then redirected to your local dealer's website.

In one search, we were directed to Altorfer Cat's site, which listed three GC models of excavators (Cat's value machine offering): the 313F GC, listed for $155,525; 320 GC ($187,625), and  the 320 GC Tool Control ($194,025). Pricing was also displayed for buckets ($6,752) and hammer bundles ($57,050 unassembled).

On the larger machines, most offerings appear to be limited to GC models. One exception is the 420F2 backhoe, listed at $119,142.

As would be expected, pricing varies by location. The 950 GC wheel loader went for $225,824 in Seattle (NC Machinery) to $235,440 in Houston (Mustang Cat) to $239,837 in both Alabama (Thompson Cat) and New York City (H.O. Penn). Both NC Machinery and Mustang Cat listed their prices as discounts from the original price of $239,837, however.

On the compact side, the retail offerings on shop.cat.com are more extensive than on the large machine side, although they do not include the full lineup that Cat offers. For example, shop.cat.com offers five compact track loaders, ranging from the 239D3 at $48,067 to the 299D3 at $86,422, and includes cab and canopy versions of the 259D3. The full Cat CTL lineup has eight models plus the 257D3 multi terrain unit.

Again, there are variances in pricing among dealers. NC Machinery, for example, lists the shop.cat.com prices listed above as the starting point, and then shows a monthly payment price as a discount ($1,359.78 on the 299D3, as an example).

Cat says the site also offers machine specifications, product videos and features. Buyers can also choose from different levels of extended protection plans (EPP), attachments, financing options and special financing deals.

The site also offers a monthly payment calculator based on machine configuration, selected EPP and financing options, so customers know the dealer acquisition price and monthly payment. Cat Financial offers financing online, leaving the final paperwork upon machine delivery, Cat says.

"The equipment needs of our customers are immediate, and they typically conduct machine searches while balancing the demands of the project site," says Alex Stokman, Caterpillar North America retail development manager. "This is just one more step in Caterpillar's transformation to deliver a faster-paced sales process. Our dealers are committed to being a one-stop shop for machines, attachments and service solutions."

Halo sahabat selamat datang di website rentalbeko.best, pada kesempatan hari ini kita akan membahas seputar Core values more than idle words at 2nd-generation General Equipment & Supplies oleh - rentalbeko.best, kami sudah mempersiapkan artikel tersebut dengan informatif dan akurat, silahkan membaca

General Equipment’s executive team, left to right, Matt Kern, Steve Berdan, Tanya Groft, Jon Shilling, Sara Frith, Don Kern and Steve Stafki.

Do the right thing. Have passion. Be innovative. Work hard.

It could be easy to think of these as just words on a wall. But walk the hallways and shop areas of General Equipment & Supplies and you begin to get a sense these core values are lived.

“We want them to be talked about all the time, and be a true belief,” says Jon Shilling, president of Fargo, North Dakota-based General Equipment.

It’s an approach that resonates with customers such as Mark, Scott and Joel Sellin with second-generation Sellin Brothers out of Hawley, Minnesota. Started in 1947 by twin brothers Harold and Roy Sellin, the company specializes in sewer and water, highway and municipal work.

Mark, Scott and Joel now run the firm with a production-focused fleet that includes excavators, dozers and wheel loaders.

“There’s always been consistency with the way they’ve treated us over the years,” Mark Sellin says. “We’ve been around a long time; it’s been a good marriage to work with General and Komatsu. It’s kept us where we wanted to be. Plus, we’re a family and they’re a family and that resonates.”

It’s also an approach that gained the notice of Equipment World editors in naming General Equipment one of its finalists for its 2019 Big Iron Dealer of the Year award.

 

Deep roots

Started in 1984 by four former employees of General Diesel and Equipment, General Equipment became a Komatsu dealer in 1986. From one location and 22 employees, the company has grown to 250-plus employees in four states and two Canadian provinces.

Company leadership has transitioned from two of its co-founders â€" Don Shilling and Jerry Kern â€" to a team led by Don’s son Jon Shilling. “Jon was just the natural leader,” says Sara Frith, vice president of customer relations and Jerry Kern’s daughter. She adds with a laugh: “He’s also the best golfer.”

Shilling and Frith are joined on the leadership team by Don and Matt Kern, Jerry Kern’s sons, who serve as vice presidents of aggregate sales and rolling stock sales, respectively. Additional leadership includes Steve Berdan, vice president of parts; Steve Stafki, vice president of service; and Tanya Groft, vice president of finance.

Frith emphasizes that the term “family business” is not exclusive to the children of the founders. “To us, every single person that works here is family,” she says. While there were ventures outside of General Equipment, the second generation all spent high-school hours in a variety of jobs. The workings of the firm were part of their lives from an early age.

“I always compared everywhere else I worked with how Don and Jerry treated their employees,” Shilling says, one of the factors that drew him back to the company after exploring commercial aviation and sales.

“I don’t think we’re the typical dealer,” Shilling continues. “We’re here specifically to provide solutions for our customers and create relationships. We believe if we take care of our people that they will take care of our customers and the rest will fall into place.”

“It’s all about empowering your people to take care of your customers,” Don Kern agrees. This includes the freedom to not get things right the first time. “When they make a mistake, we pick them up and keep things going forward,” he says. “It’s a way to challenge them to figure things out rather than just hand them an answer.”

 

Smart construction

“With Komatsu being on the cutting edge, we’ve seen technology become the main market change in the past five years,” Shilling says.

General Equipment has emphasized the benefits of Komatsu intelligent excavators and dozers to clients, employing a smart construction business manager, Mitch Strehlow, who’s in charge of showcasing equipment demos, or as the company terms them “experiences.”

“This gets us out of the price game and shows customers new ways of doing things, and other ways of saving money than just buying the cheapest equipment,” says Micah Tysver, sales manager.

“The guys who are really looking to grow and build their business are the front runners in adopting technology,” says Matt Kern. “It started with the dozers, because the dozers were the easiest product to see the benefit of the GPS. And the intelligent excavators are the next big phase. It’s been a hard sale with utilities and underground contractors, but now people are starting to see the benefits.”

One of those benefits may be the ability to do a majority of the work with one machine, Matt explains. An example is digging a pond, which would usually involve a support dozer.

“Now you can just bring the excavator in and do the whole thing,” Kern says.  Unfortunately, many just look at the $80,000-plus up-front cost of intelligent machines. “There’s an unbelievable amount of excess dirt that gets moved,” he argues. “If you’ve got a job where you usually move 200 yards of material, but instead you move 150 yards because you’ve eliminated over-excavating by using an intelligent machine, the math gets real easy real fast.”

As customers become accustomed to the information that telematics and GPS systems give them, Kern sees a growing push to integrate this data into one dashboard. “The fuel consumption will be in same report as the GPS files, and it’s going to be one consolidated place where you can really understand your equipment costs for bidding the next job,” he says.

“We want to fly the project site with a drone, do cut and fill maps, be with the customers for pre-construction meetings and give everyone better visibility on what needs to be done,” Kern says. “Eventually, you’ll be able to walk around the jobsite with an iPad and see the finished project. In the coming years, we’re going to see incredible advancements in technology.”

As companies transition to incoming generations there is a desire to look at innovative solutions and technology, Tysver says. “You’re starting to see a recognition that they won’t be able to compete unless they start to adapt. They know that in order to move their business forward they are going to have to get into this, and the sooner, the better. That conversation has been a little bit easier every year, and it used to be a hard one to have.”

In the shop: General Equipment technician Spencer Christianson.

 

Evolving service

Technology is also front-center in managing and servicing equipment, says Steve Stafki, vice president of service. Customers are using telematics to manage idle time, determine how much fuel they are burning and find out if they are getting the full life out of an oil change, he says.

“If their machine idles for 50 percent of the time, it means they’ve burned up that many more hours of warranty and machine life without doing anything,” he says.

“They’re also expecting dealers to provide this data so that they can use it with their business system,” Stafki says.

Customers are also more receptive to maintenance contracts, which Stafki says have “skyrocketed.”

“We’re able to take care of all their maintenance, and make sure we do it around their schedule,” he says. That’s a great benefit for around $4 per running hour.

“I don’t care what brand it is, I want a maintenance contract on that machine because I want to show them how good General Equipment is,” Stafki says.

One critical key to providing excellent service is the technician talent a dealer has recruited and retained, which is where Ann Pollert, director of workforce development, comes in. “We’ll try anything,” she says of their efforts to get techs in the door. “One thing I love about this company is we never say no to trying new things.”

Started two years ago, General Equipment’s apprenticeship is geared to those who have been out in the workforce for a few years. The company currently has approved apprenticeships for a diesel tech, an aggregate equipment technician and for a parts technician. “We’ve been doing this informally for 35 years, because that’s how we’ve trained our employees, but this just formalizes it,” Pollert says.

Service work has seasons, with spring’s mad rush to get equipment running and out the door being exacerbated by March-to-May DOT load limits on roads. “By March 1st, you better have everything that’s big gone or else it’s going to be sitting here until May,” Stafki says.

June tends to be another busy period as machines that have been sitting all winter start to have issues when they begin to work hard. “Our field work shoots through the roof,” he says, “because everyone is go, go, go.” Summer is also the time for rentals, which requires keeping fleet machines rental-ready.

Machines start to return in September and October, when customers turn machines in for winter work, Stafki says. Winter is also the time for rebuilds, and servicing customers who work in the winter.

“You might have every truck out on the road when it’s 30 below,” he says. “The guys are amazing. They’ll work 5 minutes and then have to warm in the truck for 15 minutes and then repeat until the work is done.”

This year’s pandemic is also altering service work, with techs sanitizing any shared tools and equipment cabs both before and after any work. There’s no more double-teaming on machine repairs, and techs stay inside their field trucks if not working on a machine.

Aggregates heritage

General’s heritage runs deep in the aggregates market. The company prides itself on its aggregate equipment inventory levels and can provide customers with an entire crushing spread. It also keeps close track of customer needs and stocks outside normal parameters for better coverage and customer uptime.

Many of the company’s expansions have involved its aggregates lines. In 2007, it launched General Aggregate Equipment Sales in the Canadian provinces of Manitoba and Saskatchewan after it saw an influx of Canadian customers. And its added aggregate equipment locations in Iowa and Minnesota.

Every three years, the company hosts a two-day Aggregate Expo in March, showcasing its aggregates products and offering breakout training sessions. The two-day 2019 event brought around 450 attendees to Fargo to look at more than 40 pieces of equipment.

“We actually got into the aggregates business by accident,” relates Don Kern, vice president of aggregate sales. His father, Jerry Kern, had a customer order a crusher, but when it arrived, the customer told him he had bought from another supplier. When Jerry was able to sell the crusher in a short time, he saw there was a need for aggregate equipment in the region.

“It grew from there,” Kern says, and the company has since become known for its aggregates service capabilities and application knowledge. “When our aggregate customers need equipment, they need it now and they need to know that when they get it put in the field it’s going to work right. There’s a real sense of urgency there.”

In addition, customers are looking for advice, Kern says. “When they come to us, they expect us to say, ‘No, you don’t need that; you need this.’ They know we’re going to ask way more questions and make darn sure that we understand what they are trying to do.”

 

Rolling with the cycles

When you deal with the oil industry as part of your market area, there’s a definite boom-and-bust cycle. That cycle went on steroids during the Bakken oil boom in North Dakota, an impact that General felt in earnest in 2012.

“It was a drastic increase in volume,” Shilling says. “We ballooned from around $95 million in sales in 2011 to over $152 million in 2012. Before the end of it, we were up to more than 300 employees and doing just shy of $200 million in revenue.”

And then the Bakken oil boom turned down as the price per barrel of oil dropped in 2015.

“We were ramped up inventory-wise for the previous sales volumes, so that was a lesson learned. We watch our inventory a lot closer and make sure we have the right equipment in stock,” Shilling says.

Although not wanting to divulge an exact number, General does have ambitious growth plans.

“We recognize that we’re not going to get back to our Bakken numbers by wishing for another oil boom,” Shilling says. “We need to do it by specific planning throughout our regions and expanding the quality product lines we offer.”

“Our goal is to grow,” he adds. “The way dealerships work now is that you’re either becoming a bigger dealer or you’re getting swallowed up by another dealer that’s doing it better. We’d rather be the one expanding.”

Halo sahabat selamat datang di website rentalbeko.best, pada kesempatan hari ini kita akan membahas seputar RES faces $500K in fines, lawsuit after fatal trench collapse oleh - rentalbeko.best, kami sudah mempersiapkan artikel tersebut dengan informatif dan akurat, silahkan membaca

Jonathan Stringer with fiancée and daughter

A contractor on a wind farm project in Washington and its affiliate face a total of $555,674 in proposed fines after a trench collapse January 9 killed one worker and injured another.

The estate of the deceased worker has also filed suit against the companies cited in the incident, alleging negligence in the death of 24-year-old Jonathan F. Stringer. The companies are affiliates of Renewable Energy Systems-Americas. RES’s LinkedIn page says it is the world’s largest renewable energy company and has global headquarters in the United Kingdom.

Stringer died after trying to rescue a fellow worker when part of a 15-foot-deep trench collapsed at the Skookumchuck Wind Farm site, according to the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries. The workers had been positioning a bore pipe so an excavator could place it under a culvert. L&I said the soil was unstable due to rain and that no trench box or other trench protection was in place.

Stringer and an excavator operator jumped in the trench after the worker was buried to try to save him. When they entered the trench, a second, larger collapse occurred, according to L&I. The excavator operator was covered up to his knees but was able to get out and call for help. Workers for RES America Construction Inc. and RES System 3 LLC and medics with a private medical service contractor attempted to rescue the buried workers. “At one point, nine or more people took turns entering the still unprotected trench to dig out the buried workers,” L&I said in its July 16 news release about the violations.

Stringer was later found and pronounced dead at the scene. Soon after, the first victim, an RES System 3 employee, was uncovered and flown to a Seattle hospital for treatment of serious injuries, L&I reported.

“This incident is heartbreaking and frustrating,” said Anne Soiza, assistant director in charge of L&I’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health. “This fatality and the hospitalization of a worker were completely preventable. Trenching at this depth, in the dead of winter after days of rain, in unstable soil with no trench box, was a recipe for disaster. These violations were flagrant and they nearly led to a multiple-fatality incident.”

Stringer worked for Aerotek, a temporary-worker agency hired by RES System 3. RES System 3 was the subcontractor on the project, and RES America Construction was the general contractor, according to L&I. RES bought System 3 in 2015. RES Americas is headquartered in Broomfield, Colorado.

L&I proposed fines of $360,874 for RES System 3 for the following alleged violations: no cave-in protection, no competent person trained on trench safety on site, no written safety program tailored to the project, inadequate training, improper ladder extension, and no means of getting out of the trench.

“RES System 3 acted indifferently to the site hazards and the rules, including regularly disregarding their internal safety policies and procedures, promoting a work policy designed to circumvent the requirements of the code, and providing inadequate direction to a crew doing inherently dangerous work,” L&I said.

RES America Construction faces $184,800 in proposed fines for the following alleged violations: not ensuring the subcontractor used cave-in protection, not having a written safety program tailored to the project, inadequate training programs and improper ladder extension.

The onsite medical services contractor, GEMS, also faces fines of $4,200 for exposing two of its employees to hazards when they entered the unprotected trench, according to L&I.

A statement from RES says it plans to appeal L&I’s fines, reports the The Daily Chronicle newspaper:

“We are heartbroken by the circumstances of this situation. RES fully cooperated with the Washington Department of Labor and Industries Division of Occupational Safety and Health during the course of this investigation. We strongly disagree with the alleged violations outlined in the citations and will contest the citations in the appropriate regulatory framework.”

In May, Stringer’s estate filed a lawsuit against RES-Americas, RES America Construction and property owner Weyerhaeuser Company, and the suit was recently expanded to include RES System 3, the Chronicle reports.

Stringer is survived by a daughter and fiancée. Stringer’s father wrote on a GoFundMe page for the Jonathan Stringer Family Fund:

“He was on a jobsite, helping save a man from a collapsing trench. He succeeded. It was Jon’s nature â€" helping others.”

RES faces $500K in fines, lawsuit after fatal trench collapse oleh - rentalbeko.best

Halo sahabat selamat datang di website rentalbeko.best, pada kesempatan hari ini kita akan membahas seputar Video: Bobcat’s New 17-ton E165 is its Largest Excavator oleh - rentalbeko.best, kami sudah mempersiapkan artikel tersebut dengan informatif dan akurat, silahkan membaca

Bobcat has introduced its largest excavator yet, the E165. With a few class-leading performance specs to its credit, this new machine continues a confident expansion of the Bobcat excavator lineup into the mid-size excavator market.

We’ve got all the details in the video below.



As the largest excavator the company has offered to date, the E165 obviously represents new territory for Bobcat. There’s no question that the company is leaning on synergies with sister company Doosan Infracore to enter into the mid-size excavator market, but what’s impressive about both the reduced-tail swing E145 that was introduced last year and this new conventional swing E165 is that Bobcat is taking these first steps into these larger markets pretty aggressively.

Like the E145, the new E165 is entering its size class with what Bobcat says is class-leading lifting capacity and hydraulic performance. Now, Bobcat hasn’t offered up any specific numbers on lift capacity to support that claim, however, they have provided numbers for max reach, bucket and arm digging force that are best in class when you compare them to competing models.

The E165 is powered by a 131 horsepower turbo-charged engine and weighs in at 38,376 pounds. Bobcat places the excavator’s arm digging force at 18,077 pound feet while bucket digging force comes in at 25,794 pound feet.

Bobcat hasn’t provided a specific figure on slew torque but does say the machine boasts enough for slewing uphill, capable backfilling and better all-around productivity than its smaller models.

The machine’s max reach at ground level is 28.8 feet. Dig depth is 20 feet and maximum dump height is 21.3 feet.

As I mentioned earlier, the E165 is a conventional tail swing model. In terms of width, the machine is 8.5 feet across. Like the E145, it sits on Bobcat’s X-Frame Undercarriage which offers increased ground clearance and maneuverability in softer ground conditions. This undercarriage is also designed to reduce the amount of time you’ll spend cleaning it. It has sloped surfaces that shed debris to prevent material buildup.

Given these specs, the E165 fits in comfortably in the 16-18 ton size class of excavators and compares very favorably even to more established competitors. Bobcat says it makes for a great road and bridge building machine, but also fits in on underground utility sites, commercial and residential building sites due to its ability to perform more intensive digging and lifting tasks than the rest of its lineup.

They also note that the machine fits in well on job sites where their larger 700 and 800 frame size class Bobcat CTLs and skid steers are in use.

 

Performance

Bobcat has equipped the E165 with an advanced hydraulic system and powerful pumps. Auxiliary standard flow is 80.4 gallons per minute. To take full advantage of these hydraulics, Bobcat has included a power boost button on the machine’s right-hand joystick that allows you to instantly increase hydraulic power whenever you need it.

For tailoring the drivetrain and hydraulic performance Bobcat has also included four power modes:

  • First up is Economy Mode which tells the machine to optimize performance for … greater fuel economy. Bobcat says you should feel comfortable throwing the E165 into Economy Mode whenever power isn’t your top priority or when performing precise digging and fine grading tasks.
  • Next up is standard power mode. This mode is aimed at giving you a balance of performance and fuel economy and is meant for most routine digging, lifting and grading tasks.
  • When you need to perform heavier lifting or tougher digging and loading tasks that you need to quickly cycle through, you can throw the machine into power mode which prioritizes power and performance over fuel economy.
  • Finally there’s Power+ Mode which obviously goes one step further than Power Mode. Power+ tells the machine to provide the maximum work group speed for quickly cycling through truck loading or ensuring the machine sustains peak performance throughout demanding applications.

There’s actually one more mode to talk about and that’s digging work mode. When you’ve got digging mode enabled, another feature called smart power control kicks in on the E165. This monitors how hard the machine is working and matches the machine’s engine rpm, hydraulic pump torque and engine response to the load at hand and it can do this while operating in any of the four power modes we just talked about. Essentially it brings an extra layer of optimization and efficiency to those power modes no matter how hard you want the machine to work as long as you’re performing digging tasks.

Further optimization features on the E165 are pump torque control which prevents engine overload by matching hydraulic demand with available horsepower, auto shift which shifts to low range automatically when load is high and back to high range when loads lighten, and variable speed control which automatically reduces engine rpm during low workload such as the slew portion of the dig cycle. Variable speed control brings a 5 percent boost in fuel efficiency.

Another standard feature aimed at saving fuel on the E165 is auto idle which idles the engine automatically whenever the machine has stopped for several seconds.

 

Larger cab

Beyond handling bigger jobs, another benefit to a larger Bobcat excavator is the larger cab. The sealed and pressurized cab on the E165 keeps sound levels low and features a heated air-suspension seat. That seat combined with the cab’s isolation from the machine’s frame add up to minimal vibration and more comfort throughout your work day.

The cab also features great visibility to the front and sides of the machine, but great overall visibility as well thanks to narrow corner pillars and small window joints which add more glass. Speaking of more glass, Bobcat has also included an overhead window and a removable lower-front window.

Bobcat has also included front and top sunshades when all of that extra glass isn’t necessarily a good thing.

Heat and air conditioning, a 7-inch display and rearview and sideview cameras are also standard features on the E165.

 

Maintenance features

On the maintenance side, the E165 offers easy access to the top side of the engine through wide-open access covers. A hinged belly pan allows access from the bottom.

Steel side covers give you quick access for the daily maintenance checklist, and centralized grease banks on the base of the boom make daily maintenance there quick and easy as well.

Another handy maintenance feature is that the E165 provides operators with reminders whenever oil and oil filters need replacing before service is due. Plus, operators can easily review hours worked since the machine’s last servicing along with a log of all machine alerts on the 7-inch in-cab display.

Motor speed adjusts to load

Case Mulching Head

Case’s mulcher attachment for its skid steers and compact track loaders features a variable two-speed motor that automatically adjusts motor displacement to changing material loads to maximize rotor speed and torque. The attachment comes standard with a high-flow configuration and can be converted at the dealership for “enhanced high flow” hydraulics systems for carrier machines over 90 horsepower. Other features include double-carbide teeth, a drum-style rotor system with a smooth rotor surface and spiral tool pattern.

 

Clear hardwoods up to 10 inches

John Deere Brush Cutter

John Deere’s RX72 and RX84 rotary cutter attachments for large skid steers and compact track loaders have high-flow hydraulics and a severe-duty door. They can clear medium to heavy brush and hardwoods up to 10 inches in diameter. Features include three blades made of AR400 steel, a pressure gauge to monitor blade load and a motor with direct drive bearing. The attachments have a retractable forward shield that rolls back to expose the blades to larger-diameter trees and closes after the material is cleared.

 

Grab debris, brush, limbs

Ditch Witch Brush Grapple

The brush grapple attachment for Ditch Witch’s stand-on compact utility loaders is designed to collect debris, loose limbs and brush. The grapples come in two widths: 42 and 54 inches. They are 25.5 inches high, 31.25 inches long and have a grapple opening of 29 inches. The 42-inch grapples weighs 270 pounds and the 54-inch attachment weighs 295 pounds. The grapple is also designed to be compact and easy to transport and it can be maneuvered on tight jobsites.

 

Cut up to 72 inches wide
