Terex Construction Americas congratulates Barda Equipment, with sales, parts and service branches  in Edmonton, Grande Prairie and High River, Alberta, as well as the Peace Region of British Columbia, for being its Top Performing Distributor in 2012. Barda Equipment was selected for its accomplishments as a full-line Terex compact construction equipment distributor with the most unit sales and year-over-year growth within the January-December 2012 period. The Top Distributor Award was recently presented to Barda Equipment at the Peace River Petroleum Show.

“It is an absolute honour to work with a dedicated distributor like Barda Equipment,” said Ken Doan, sales director, Compact, Terex Construction Americas. “With their broad reach throughout Alberta and British Columbia, Barda Equipment has done an outstanding job with the Terex compact equipment product line since taking it on in 2009. With a reputation for providing exceptional customer service and quality equipment, the Terex line has created many opportunities for Barda Equipment to better serve its customers’ unique equipment needs. We are so pleased to present Penny (Batt) and Barry (Fenton) with this award, and we’re looking forward to more great things to come from Barda Equipment.”

Penny Batt, general manager, Barda Equipment, shared Doan’s excitement, “Our success in 2012 was due in large part to the availability of product, our fantastic team members within Barda Equipment and our customers’ response to the Terex compact track loaders (CTLs) and skid steer loaders. We recognize that our business and customer success depends on providing quality products, including the Terex compact equipment line. We have continued to gain customer loyalty throughout the years by providing well-known, well-respected equipment, as well as a complete range of equipment sales, as well as full service, parts and warranty capabilities.”

With more than 45 unique product models, the Terex compact equipment line offers one of the widest ranges of compact equipment available from a single manufacturer, giving Barda Equipment customers numerous options for their equipment investment. The line includes compact track loaders, skid steer loaders, mini excavators, compact wheel loaders and backhoe loaders, as well as certain models of Genie aerial work platform products.  Prior to becoming a Terex distributor, Barda Equipment carried the ASV-line of compact track loaders since 1997. With the Terex acquisition of ASV, the company became one of the earliest Terex full-line compact construction equipment distributors in North America. 

Barda Equipment serves customers in a variety of different markets and industries – from general construction to more specialized applications like forestry, landscaping, grounds maintenance and hobby farming. According to Owner Barry Fenton, Terex CTLs continue to be one of the company’s most popular equipment models. “Our customers appreciate how powerful and easy to use the Terex CTLs are, and the Posi-Track undercarriage system really set this brand apart from the competition,” said Fenton. “The high ground clearance and competitive pricing throughout the entire Terex compact equipment line really gives us an edge in many situations.” 

“I’ve worked with Penny, Barry and the entire Barda Equipment team for a number of years, and I believe they are truly one of the most dedicated distributors that Terex has in North America,” finished Terex Sales Manager Gregg Warfel. “I congratulate them on receiving this prestigious award and look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the coming years.”

K-Tec 1263 ADT: World’s Largest Construction Pull Scraper Has Heaped Capacity of 63 Cubic Yards

K-Tec Earthmovers, a Canadian-based manufacturer, has just launched its latest and largest construction pull scraper for massive scale earthmoving. The K-Tec 1263 ADT is the world’s largest earthmoving scraper available on the market today. With a heaped capacity of 63 cubic yards (ISO) and empty tare weight of 61,000 pounds, the K-Tec 1263 ADT is built for massive dirt moving projects. Designed to be pulled with a 40Ton+ Articulated Dump Truck, this scraper is ready to help contractors substantially reduce their dirt moving costs and gain a massive advantage in the earthmoving industry. The hitch system transfers 32 percent of the scraper load weight directly to the point where the truck is designed to carry weight. An exclusive digital display screen is included in the cab for visual operating details, tracking load count productivity, and troubleshoot serviceability. The 1263 ADT has a bolt-together design which enables overseas container shipment, and ease of maintenance.

To maximize the 1263’s capacity, a push dozer in the cut is recommended to utilize the standard roller push-block innovation (an exclusive feature in today's scraper market). Additionally, for contractors with excavators, the K-Tec 1263 ADT works exceptional as a haul wagon with the large target area making for easy and efficient loading. The K-Tec 1263 ADT was enhanced from its predecessor, the K-Tec 1254 ADT. The extra 9 cubic yard capacity comes from a 15.25' long bucket and larger gate belly to contain more material. K-Tec has recognized the need for increased capacity and efficient scrapers for large contractors, and the 1263 ADT fills this gap in the market.

Terex GEN2 R265T Compact Track Loader – Heavy-Duty Machine with a Light Footprint

Featuring a 74-hp turbocharged Tier 4 Final diesel engine with variable flow hydraulics for powerful productivity and quick cycle times, the new 2,650-pound rated operating capacity Terex R265T compact track loader is the newest member of the Terex Generation 2 (GEN2) loader line-up. Boasting a narrow machine width (70 inches), the R265T radial lift path compact track loader can easily maneuver and operate in confined or congested work sites, making it an ideal loader for rental stores and contractors working in site preparation, construction, landscaping, infrastructure development and demolition applications. Its purpose-built chassis is designed to be a heavy-duty machine within a compact package.

Proving it has the power and productivity to get the job done, the R265T loader has 221 ft-lb of peak torque, a tipping load of 7,571 pounds, a bucket breakout force of 5,800 pounds and a lift height of 125 inches, enabling it to get loading, picking and carrying, grading, back dragging or snow removal jobs done faster and more efficiently. Compact track loaders, like the R265T unit, engineered with a radial lift path – meaning the loader arms raise in an arc pattern – excel at digging and grading applications. Another benefit of the radial lift path configuration is the visibility around the unit it provides to operators, especially when working around existing infrastructure, such as homes and in backyards.

New Options for Freightliner 122SD Enhances Rugged Performance

The Freightliner 122SD can now be spec’d with Allison 4700 Rugged Duty Series (RDS) and Oil Field Series (OFS) automatic transmissions. The combination of the 122SD with Allison’s vocational transmissions is ideal for tough off-road and oil field applications.

Better performance comes from such features as 2nd Reverse, which offers a second “deep reverse” in addition to the standard reverse; automatic shifts, which automatically and smoothly make the right shift at the right time; and greater startablity, which uses less torque to launch and go. Both transmissions are available with Detroit DD13, DD15 and DD16 and Cummins ISX heavy-duty engines.

Hilti PS 50 Multidetector Takes the Guesswork Out of Drilling Concrete

The new Hilti Multidetector PS 50 brings new depth to area scanning. The self-calibrating tool uses pulsed radar technology to detect a variety of concealed objects: ferrous and non-ferrous, wood or plastic and electrical conduits at depths up to 5-7/8 inches (15 cm) in concrete with high accuracy. Two additional sensors allow for the classification of those objects and the detection of live wire.

The PS 50 helps users drill right the first time by quickly and easily locating objects under the surface of structures which helps avoid costly repairs and saves time. Applications such as drilling anchor holes or through penetrations for pipe and cable installation; locating underfloor heating pipes or other pipe and cable runs; setting anchors in hollow or thermally activated slabs, can be performed with minimized risk.
