It’s back by popular demand, and it’s going to be better than ever!  Just last March we hosted a pair of Finn open houses at our Orland Park and South Elgin stores and the turnout was so great we’re bringing them back again!  Just like last year we’ll have our expert Finn reps on hand with the latest equipment Finn has to offer and we’ll be giving hands-on demos and operator training.  Watching bark blowers and hydroseeders up close in action is a great way to learn for those new to the Finn line and those familiar with it will enjoy the chance to speak directly to the Finn folks who know these machines like the back of their hands.

The first open house will be in Orland Park on Wednesday, March 19th and the South Elgin session will happen the next day – Thursday March 20th.  RSVP to the Orland Park open house HERE or the South Elgin session HERE.  Let us know your name, company and how many people you plan on bringing to the event.  Registration will begin at 9am, activities at 9:30.  We’ll be done for the day around 12:30 and we’re serving lunch!

Filtration Socks vs. Silt Fencing

Job site erosion control is an important aspect of construction projects that some contractors don’t give a second thought to.  For many, the way it’s always been done is the way they’ll always do it.  That way of thinking can cost you in the long run if you’re not careful.  Nowadays there are an increasing number of options available, and with groups like the EPA weighing in on new technologies, it’s time to take a closer look at what will work best for you.  To start, ask yourself a few simple questions:

What’s important to me?  Cost?  Easy-to-install and maintain?  Environmental impact?

Your answer to these questions will help inform your decision when it comes to choosing the right method.  Below, we’ve taken some time to shed more light on two methods, silt fencing and filtration socks. Continue reading
