Watch Screen Machine’s 612T Dirt Screener in Action (VIDEO)

A few months back we got our hands on a 612T trommel.  Since then you’ve read about it and you’ve seen it crawling around our yard.  Now watch it take on a pile of dirt.  We started with a big pile of useless stuff and ended up with a lot of quality material.  We were even able to run the first spoils pile through a second time to further break up the tough, wet stuff.  Check it out – we think you’ll be impressed:

0% Financing on New Holland Construction Equipment

New Holland Construction C238 rubber track skid steer loader

No interest payments means you keep all that cash you make with your new machine

New Holland’s got 0% financing for up to 5 years on construction equipment going on right now*. If your fleet is maxed out this summer or if you’re looking to gear up for this coming winter now is as good a time as any to buy a skid steer, backhoe, excavator OR wheel loader.

Having 60 months with no interest is going to let you bank that extra cash instead of giving it to the finance company. This way you’ll keep your cash flow strong even while paying off your brand new machine – a machine that’s going to help you finish your jobs quicker and let you take on more work and bring in more money.

0% interest is a low-risk way to finance equipment so if you’re in the market for a new workhorse give us a call at any of our stores and we’ll get you in the cab and show you the New Holland experience.

*Offer good for well-qualified commercial customers. Good through 8/31/14.

Rent It: FINN T120 Hydroseeder

Finn Corporation T120T Hydroseeder

We’re going BIGGER with the T120 hydroseeder from Finn

If you’ve been tuning into this blog over the years you’ve noticed that we’re a big fan of Finn hydroseeders.  Finn has made hydroseeders longer than anyone in the business (since 1953 to be exact) and the advantages of hydroseeding outweigh just about every benefit of straw blankets or hand seeding.

We’ve had T75 and T90 seeders in our fleet for a long time, but now we’re upping our game with the T120, which is perfect for larger commercial seed installation and erosion control. Continue reading

Parts Special: 20% OFF Transport Safety Equipment

Construction equipment load binders and chains

Make sure your investment is protected with the proper tiedowns

Safety should always come first when transporting equipment to and from the job site.  If your machines aren’t properly secured you’re risking fines, damage to the machine, injury or worse.  Having too few straps and tiedowns is a mistake, but so is overlooking worn out and damaged ones.  Replacing chains and binders is a smart move and replacing them this month is even smarter because we’re knocking 20% OFF all transportation accessories.
