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.”

SK35SR Is KOBELCO’s Smallest Model with Integrated Noise and Dust Reduction Cooling System (iNDr

KOBELCO Construction Machinery has enhanced their SK35SR model. It is now the company’s smallest model to feature their exclusive Integrated Noise and Dust Reduction Cooling System (iNDr). The newly redesigned, SK35SR model offers full-size performance with short-radius capabilities, quiet operation and exceptional performance features. Prior to the SK35SR, KOBELCO’s iNDr system was only available in larger-model excavators.

This compact, robust machine incorporates KOBELCO’s iNDr technology into an advanced dual arrangement cooling system – the iNDr and eco-friendly system (iNDr+E). KOBELCO’s iNDr+E feature utilizes the same high-tech iNDr system found in the company’s conventional excavators but differs by directing the muffler exhaust underneath the machine. In addition, the SK35SR’s cooling system suppresses the machine’s noise to a low 76 decibels.

New Terex Generation 2 Loaders Boast More Than 100 Upgrades, Build On Popular Features

Terex introduced its new line of skid steer loaders and compact track loaders specifically designed for rental stores and contractors working in site preparation, construction, landscaping, infrastructure development and demolition applications. Based on proven designs and engineering, the new Terex Generation 2 (GEN2) loaders feature more than 100 enhancements from the previous models and are available in radial and vertical lift-path patterns with rated operating capacities (ROC) ranging from 665 to 3,600 pounds. These features combine to offer operators powerful machine productivity on every jobsite and equipment owners a high return on investment.

As part of the company’s continuous improvement methodology, many of the enhancements to the Terex GEN2 loader lines are aimed at increasing machine performance through additional ROC and loader breakout forces, while increasing durability and reliability in the field, which reduces the cost of ownership during the life of the loader.

Xtreme Manufacturing Uprates Largest RT Telehandler Made In North America

Xtreme Manufacturing is uprating its new XR6538 roughterrain telehandler to the XR7038. Introduced at ConExpo 2014 as the Xtreme XR6538, the machine has since undergone full testing and has been uprated to a lifting capacity of 70,000 pounds. This is a 5,000-pound increase in lift capacity from the initial ConExpo specifications and further cements its position as the largest-capacity rough-terrain telehandler manufactured in North America, according to the company.

The XR7038 has been designed by Xtreme’s in-house engineering team for mining, bridge construction and pipe handling applications, plus any jobsite where there is a need to lift and move heavy loads. Weighing in at 115,000 pounds (unloaded) with 38 feet of lifting height, and featuring 6.5-foot-tall foamfilled tires and a 24-foot turning radius, the XR7038 is an ideal alternative to small crane applications, especially as it can transport as well as lift a load. It is powered by a Cummins 300-hp Tier 4 Final engine and has a large 150-gallon fuel capacity to reduce the frequency that the machine will need to be refuelled.

Equipment Theft on the Rise

Ontario Provincial Police estimate that 15 to 20 million dollars worth of heavy construction equipment is stolen in that province alone each year. According to CBC News, across Canada the cost to the industry for heavy equipment theft is estimated at 46 million dollars per year. Organized crime has moved onto building sites, CBC says, and as a result, stolen Canadian equipment and materials are ending up everywhere from Russia to the Middle East.

Individual thieves and crime rings whose sole business is stealing heavy equipment access unattended jobsites, load equipment onto trailers and haul it away to resell to unsuspecting buyers, or dismantle the equipment to sell the parts, or they illegally export the heavy equipment to buyers overseas.

Roadtec Brings Back Innovative Design for SP-100e Stealth Paver

Roadtec has brought back an innovative paver design with various updates. The SP-100e Stealth Paver is a simply-designed, low-maintenance gravity-fed paver built specifically for operating with the Roadtec Shuttle Buggy material transfer vehicle.

Gravity feeds the material directly to the auger from the mass flow hopper, replacing the need for slat conveyors, hopper wings, push rollers and tandem front boggies, thereby significantly reducing maintenance costs and initial purchase price. It also requires less engine power compared to a traditional conveyor system, which increases the machine’s fuel economy. The gravity-fed hopper is also used on Roadtec’s SP- 200e spray paver.
