The Concrete Contractors Association of Greater Chicago held their 60th Annual Smoker last week. The Smoker marks the unofficial start of the Chicagoland concrete construction season. For the past 59 Smokers, CCA has served up some legendary grub, and they’ve given away interesting, cool door prizes.
Rick Grimes from Laborers’ Local One was the big winner of a Martin Implement cooler and a case of beer. When asked what he thought, Rick said, “I’ll give this case a good home.” Congratulations Rick, that’s what we like to hear. It was a fun event and we hope to see everyone at the 2016 Smoker!

We’ve hit on the benefits of preventative maintenance before because of its importance. Well, you know what’s super important in a maintenance plan? OIL! And lots of it. Quality OEM oil is the best stuff you can give your machine as you prep for the spring and summer rush, and we’ve got it by the bucket load. For the month of May, we’re also giving you 15% OFF New Holland brand engine and hydraulic oil when you buy at least 10 gallons.
Oil is the lifeblood of your machine so don’t skip on quality. Questions about the type of oil you need? Both our Parts and Service departments will be glad to help you, whether you plan on doing the oil change with us or in your shop. If you’re the DIY type, keep in mind that we can take back your used oil and properly dispose of it.
*Discount is valid with participation in the Real Deal offer program
Martin Implement hosted FINN Corporation’s erosion control expert, John Tucker, this week for demos of the FINN BB5 bark blower. John showed the finer points of the machine and demoed erosion control techniques. We were glad to have him around! Thanks to everyone else that participated. Here’s some footage:
The BB 5-Series is an ideal tool for mid-size mulching projects where hand labor just won’t cut it. Mulch was applied on this Arlington Heights playground using the BB 5-Series bark blower. Mulch, bark, soil blends and compost can be applied on virtually any terrain, even in wet conditions, and the BB 5-Series can be especially profitable when accessing hard-to-reach areas.
We hope you were able to get up close to see the blower in action and to see in person how much more productive a bark blower can make you on projects. If you have any questions on FINN products, contact us at any one of our three locations. We rent and sell FINN equipment.
Did you know that, in addition to genuine New Holland parts, we also carry CNH Industrial REMAN parts from New Holland? CNH Industrial REMAN parts from New Holland are remanufactured from their core to their original, like-new condition. They cost less than new parts, and come ready to install. Want to know more?
We get our remanufactured parts from CNH, which means they’re built by the same people who make your New Holland machines. These parts are different than aftermarket or re-used parts, these pumps, starters and engines are rebuilt using new parts. PLUS, most items come with a 12 month warranty (just to put you even more at ease).
What’s the best part about REMAN, though? They’re cheaper than new parts, and you’re not sacrificing quality! Let’s review: REMAN parts are like new, they come with one of the best parts warranties in the industry, AND they’re less expensive. So what’s not to like?
We sell REMAN engines, EIC boards, hydraulic pumps, axles, fuel pumps, starters, injection pumps and injectors and more. To order a REMAN part give our Parts Department a call at any of our stores.
