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.
When watching a jobsite from afar, the equipment moves about almost as if it were rehearsed. Loaders roll into piles of dirt, while excavators glide through the ground and empty big buckets into trucks.
To the people who use it every day, underground infrastructure is very “out of sight, out of mind.” Warm a home with a gas furnace, turn a faucet on to wash your hands, flush a toilet, it’s all part of a daily routine.
In early 2015, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics cited national unemployment numbers were around 5.5 percent, while the construction industry unemployment rate hovered at nearly twice as much at 10.6 percent.
Each jobsite presents new challenges — there may be land to clear and existing structures and foundations to remove. There’s typically a need for compaction, either in trenches or on surrounding slopes.
