Underground utility installations and repairs call for a lot of muscle, so it’s no wonder why an excavator fits the bill. These machines are large and in charge when the time comes to dig deep and pick and place materials around the jobsite. However, they can’t do it alone, so that’s where attachments come into play.
Contractors need an arsenal of equipment to get their work done. And although the idea of these fleets include big machines such as excavators and backhoes, the supporting cast of equipment warrants attention too. Portable air compressors allow contractors to channel pressurized gases to drive their tools and crews into ever new applications (hammers, vacuums, nail guns, pumps and other new jobs).
A successful organization is only as good as the members who support it, and the Suncoast Utility Contractors Association (SUCA) is definite proof of that. Incorporated in May 1975 and located in Tampa, Fla., the association focuses on legislative issues and ordinances locally — and nationally through NUCA — to protect contractors and promote the industry.
