Quotes

"First, we did embankment construction with bulldozers, excavators and rollers," he said. "There are two bridge sets, for a total of four bridges that are twins of each other. It does take a lot of time, excavating, setting the rebar, pouring the foundation, working up to the bridge deck. One is 60-feet wide and the other is 100-feet wide. The project on Highway 97 was the first on the state highway system."
...Sometimes we decided to purchase new and sometimes we purchased used equipment. The guys would operate them and they would tell us, "Well, if you're going to give us a choice, this is what we'd rather have — this one fine grades better, this one digs quicker, this one pushes more dirt…etc." and it seemed like the majority of these superlative aspects of the equipment always fell back to Caterpillar.”
...benefit was a prime concern in the development of our new slipform paver," said Ralf Schug of Wirtgen's development and engineering department. "The new features, which we use as modular systems in all the machines, permit a maximum range of applications and high-precision paving results. Meanwhile, the handling is intuitive and very convenient."
"Ideal for general construction, utility, landscape and vegetation management work, the PT-110 loaders are designed with the same features that have made Terex compact track loaders among the best-selling models in the industry. A few new features include a diesel particulate filter and after-cooled Tier IVi-compliant engine for improved performance, a hydraulic fan cooling system for efficient cooling and more production, as well as an open design for ease of access to all critical components to enhance serviceability."
