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.”

Westport Unveils Its Proprietary Enhanced Spark-Ignited Natural Gas System Targeting Medium-Duty Truck Applications

Westport Innovations Inc., engineering the world's most advanced natural gas engines and vehicles,  is unveiling its newest proprietary technology, the first generation of enhanced spark-ignited (ESI) natural gas system. Westport's new revolutionary approach to natural gas combustion technology is designed to provide vehicle and engine original manufacturers (OEMs) with a "downsized" natural gas solution that is cost competitive while providing similar levels of power, torque, and fuel economy to a larger diesel engine. Using 100% dedicated natural gas as fuel, Westport's new technology optimizes the combustion and thermal efficiencies of the engine by taking advantages of the positive properties of natural gas.

Developed to meet the highest level of OEM quality standards, Westport's new combustion system and components have been undergoing testing and offer ready integration into OEM applications globally. Its durability and reliability levels are expected to meet an OEM's extensive engine development program. The Westport™ ESI combustion system is targeted at sub 9L engines for Class 6 and 7 trucks applications and is also adaptable for sub 2L applications for use in automotive and non-automotive applications.

GOMACO’s GP-2400 Adds Easy Width Changing Capability with V2 Variable-Width Mold

GOMACO’s GP-2400 is the latest paver in their complete line of concrete slipform pavers to feature the V2 variable-width mold. The GP-2400 is capable of paving up to 24 feet (7.5 m) wide and with the V2 mold on board, it can make 6.5-foot (2m) transitions to form tapered slabs on the go and easily make paving width changes. The GP-2400 with V2 mold paving package features a hydraulically telescoping rolling frame for easy and accurate width changes. The frame has dual rollers, mounted to the top and bottom of the outer frame tubes, to position the inner tube and reduce the amount of surface-to-surface contact area. This reduces friction and drag as the inner tube rolls when telescoping and provides a fluid action as the V2 mold makes on-the-go width changes. The configuration of the front and rear molds dictates the minimum and maximum paving widths and the total amount of width variation. The molds feature dual power transition adjusters (PTAs) for crown height adjustment. It is also available with a curb profile, on one or both sides, for municipal paving.

A spreader plow with hydraulic vertical movement controls the head of concrete in front of the V2 sectionalized mold system. The plow rail has the ability to accommodate width changes. Proximity switches on the plow framework set the length of travel and these switches can easily be moved to change the plow’s settings. The plow’s horizontal and vertical movement can be operated manually or set on automatic.

Temperature Used For Asphalt Paving Quality Control

The scanner collects the temperature of the asphalt over the whole width of the road.
The scanner collects the temperature of the asphalt over the whole width of the road.

During resurfacing of Highway 29 near Alexandria, Minnesota, the road surface was repaved over a distance of about 30 miles. The company that performed the work, Central Specialities Inc., used the PAVE-IR Scan quality control system for the first time. With this system, the temperature is recorded during asphalt paving, allowing conclusions to be drawn about the quality of the asphalt.

For road building companies, a high-quality result translates directly into money if there are financial penalties for not meeting contractually defined, quality criteria. Likewise, companies are rewarded if the criteria are met, the work completed ahead of schedule or the minimum requirements exceeded. It is therefore important for companies to be able to provide proof of their work and to be able to verify the quality.
