Taking things one day a time — a phrase you’ve no doubt heard, and one that applies to proper excavator maintenance. Within each day, there are inspections to make, attachments to choose and, of course, an actual job to do.
A utility contractor’s equipment fleet typically includes multiple machines to get everyday projects done. However, jobsites don’t always offer the conditions needed for larger equipment to barrel through or even the space for more than one machine.
Thunder Creek Equipment has introduced its all-new FST Series trailers – available in 500-, 750- and 990-gallon diesel capacities with a 100-gallon DEF tank and an optional field-installed rear utility box.
Just like choosing a car, selecting an articulated dump truck (ADT) is based on more than just looks. Potential owners need to consider how the machine will perform, if the machine is versatile enough, if the machine is easy to service and how safe the machine is before fully committing.
Every project calls for a unique set of requirements: Its own deadline, labor demands and, of course, equipment. When a project on the to-do list needs a machine that’s lacking in a crew’s fleet, rental is a great option to keep the work going.
It’s often said that quality beats quantity. Over the years, utility contractors have started to realize the truth behind that statement due to the benefits of having one machine with increased versatility on the jobsite instead of multiple machines.
