Labor Saving All Stars: Toro Dingo Compact Utility Loaders

You can almost hear it roar: King of the Dingos, The TXL 2000.

MASTERS OF MULTI-TASKING
There are some machines that seem to “come out of the bullpen” day after day. Ready for anything. Nimble, powerful, adaptable, and so easy to jump on and use that you find yourself becoming attached to the things. That’s pretty much the whole plot with Toro Dingo lineup: the new TXL 2000, the TX1000 (wide and narrow), and the TX525 and TX427.  The more you use them…the more uses you discover. 

YOU SURE CAN GET ATTACHED TO THESE DINGOS…
The stand-and-drive setup is always easy and efficient, and our customers have always loved the simple and intuitive controls. It’s a machine you’ll learn quickly and love to operate once you do. But it’s the other end of the machine where “attachment” truly becomes a thing of beauty.  Just a few possibilities:

Product Spotlight: Engcon Tiltrotator

The ENGCON TILTROTATOR: such a supple wrist!

The Engcon Tiltrotator is one of those innovative products that comes along every now and then and makes us all wonder how we got along before it came along. It also makes us wish we invented it! We featured the EC 204 model of this new tool at the iLandscape show and coupled it with a Hyundai R35 mini-excavator, and it was a smash-hit with our earth-moving and grade-grooming friends. 

INNOVATIVE EFFICIENCY
Once placed on the end of your dipper stick (or attached to your hydraulic quick coupler) the Tiltrotator offers incredible flexibility for positioning tools, enabling more work to be done without moving your excavator to get a better angle. With the combination of tilt and rotation, you can often work around or under pipes and other structural obstacles.  BIG SAVINGS: in work-time, fuel, machine wear (and for some jobs, personnel), make this coupler not only a joy to use, but an inventive new source of work-site efficiency and improved ROI.

Labor-saving All Stars: Fecon Forestry Mulchers

In this new series on Fully Equipped, we dive a little deeper into the benefits of some of our favorite labor-saving machines. 

First up: FECON MULCHERS

MULCHING MAKES IT BETTER Here’s the thing: the FECON BULL HOG mulchers can cut brush, stumps and trees up to 8 inches in diameter (cutting them down to ground level).  Trees and brush truly get mulched –which means you eliminate the need to do a lot of follow-up work. Chain saws, chippers, and the people required to run them…all disappear from your job-costs, just like the BULL HOG erasing a gnarly stand of trees and tangled brushes.

RIGHT MODEL FOR THE JOB Fecon and Martin Implement offer BULL HOG models that can work beautifully when hooked up to a compact track loader (with high-flow hydraulics). We also carry their FMX BULL HOGS, which are designed to use when you have to have the greater reach of an excavator. Attaching these mulchers to tracked machines allow you to maneuver in more variable terrain than you can access with a PTO / 3 Point setup on a tractor.  Check out the FMX50 in action on this video — you don’t want to try this with a tractor!

Put a Hyundai To Work! 8 Days A Week Deal Is ON for MINI-Excavators

Hyundai mini-excavators: Eight days a week!  Ooooh!

Starting February 1st and running through April 30, 1919, when you rent a Hyundai mini-excavator from us, you’ll get 8 Days A Week. That’s right: one day of additional use for every week the unit is rented*.  

We have several Hyundai Minis in our rental fleet, the R35, R55, and R80. You can watch the R35 in action on a video we did awhile back at a Joliet home / job site. You’ll see some new drain tiles needed in tight quarters, but the Hyundai mini was more than up to the task. Get in tight, reach, dig…done!

Parts Special: 20% OFF Transport Safety Equipment

Construction equipment load binders and chains

Protect your investment with the proper tie-downs

Safety should always come first when transporting equipment to and from the job site. If you don’t properly secure your machines, you’re risking fines, damage to the machine, injury or worse.
Having too few straps and tie-downs 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. Continue reading

Product Spotlight: The New Holland C245 Compact Track Loader

BOOM! THERE IT IS: THE NEW HOLLAND C245 IS A GENTLE GIANT

When does a compact track loader officially become a work-site monster? 
Maybe when it can lift and dump right into the center of a standard-height semi (from either side). 
Or when it has loader and bucket breakout forces at 9,200 and 7,500 lbs. each?
…When it has a 4,500 lb. operating capacity and a whopping 9,000 lb. tipping load??
Or maybe it all comes down to being so musclebound that it looks like the C245 is ready to star in the next Transformers flick.   Yeah, that’s definitely part of it!
