You Will Be Missed, Ben!
Ben rejoined the MLS team in 2015 as a project supervisor. In his 6 years here, he has managed many projects including MD 117, Campus Creek and, of course, Ben’s Branch. He and his family recently moved to Wyoming to enjoy their next chapter. He will be greatly missed as a boss, colleague and a friend.
We bought two brand new 2021 PC138USLC-11 Mid-Size Hydraulic Excavator from Anderson Equipment. EX33 and EX34
Komatsu pioneered the tight tail swing design and has optimized it further with the Tier 4 Final PC138USLC-11. With this excavator you can work in one lane of traffic without disturbing the other lane. Beyond its’ tight swing capability, the PC138USLC-11 has similar digging and lifting power as most standard competitive excavators. Six working modes and efficient Komatsu engine and hydraulic technology help make the new PC138USLC-11 up to 4% more fuel efficient than the previous model.
We also bought 4 brand new 2021 Pronith T14R panthers from Company Wrench. TT15, TT16, TT17, and TT18.
After redefining the dumper category market, PRINOTH sets yet again a new standard, by increasing the PANTHER T14R's legendary speed and power, while adding a host of impressive new features designed to boost uptime and operator performance with the new version of its large tracked rotating dumper. With its 13,200 kg (29,100 lb.) payload capacity, this rotating rubber tracked dumper allows contractors to work in tight, sensitive areas where other vehicles do not have access. The T14R’s overall design offers superior visibility through unrestricted cab views for increased safety for operators and other jobsite workers. Without sacrificing power, the new generation of PANTHER vehicles is now driven by CAT’s double-label engine model C7.1 EPA Tier 4 Final/EUROMOT Stage V, supporting PRINOTH’s Clean Motion philosophy for sustainability. Offering one of PRINOTH's patent-pending innovation called a direction reset, which essentially allows the operator to reset the vehicle’s upper and lower portions’ alignment (front to back) by simply pushing a button, the T14R allows the continuous rotation of the upper portion of the vehicle independent from the undercarriage.
