Are You Sitting Down For This? Replacement Seats are 15% Off Thru June!

When to replace operator's seat
OKAY MAYBE NOT THIS OLD…But if your operators need a new “parking 
spot,” for their keesters, we’ve got you covered! (And the seats are too!)

NO NEED TO HIT ROCK BOTTOM!
Seats are a lot like shoes: you never really notice that the pair you’re wearing has gone from “broken in” to “just plain broke.” until you finally slip into that comfy new pair. Or…sit on a completely new, full padded replacement seat. The only difference is: with today’s modern seats and cushioning material, unlike shoes, new seats FEEL GREAT RIGHT AWAY.

MARTIN IMPLEMENT TO THE RESCUE:
15% OFF NEW REPLACEMENT SEATS THROUGH June 30, 2020!
We have an inventory of common seats for just about any piece of equipment, and we can also order any special request you may have. We take seats seriously, because we know from our own personal experience just how much the operator’s comfort matters.

New Hyundai Hi Care Adds To Long-Popular Hi Mate Service

SOMETHING BETTER, MATE!
Hard to believe it could get better!  But it is easy to see why Hyundai has always been a leader in equipment service innovations.  Their new Hi CARE service augments the already crowd-pleasing Hi MATE remote management application in some very significant ways.

Hi CARE IS EVEN SMARTER
Hyundai Hi CARE is a telematics system providing aftermarket support — a feature-rich platform that enables factory, dealer service teams, and fleet managers to provide remote support to their customers.  And with Hi Mate, they’ve considerably beefed up the information available, and connected service capabilities…

Hi Care begins with all the amazing features of the Hi MATE system

  • GPS-Satellite Technology — real time, up-to-date machine location information
  • Operating History — daily reports on engine hours, remaining fuel, and key on/off time
  • Geo-Fencing — enables you to protect equipment from theft with a virtual fence and a (very) real alarm
  • Fuel Level Monitoring — end downtime with advance notice of refueling needs

Hi Care then adds integrated information from several other sources: such as warranty data, oil analysis program results, and additional engine-function reports (see below).  And it’s all managed by Hyundai at the Hi CARE Center, within their corporate offices — using the Cloud, and bringing together data through Hyundai’s collaboration with Cummins.

Martin Implement Maintenance Notebook: Facts and Friction

Got grease?  Use it liberally!

MACHINES NEED GREASE: A CAUTIONARY TALE
One of the things that sets professional equipment apart from everyday machines like your car is the intensity of the work it does. Big machines running all day, lifting heavy objects, maxing out on their breakout force…well, work like that gets HOT. Friction is a constant, and it’s a constant threat to your machine’s biggest moving parts. Modern equipment is incredibly strong and well-constructed, but it still requires maintenance.  And in the case of lubrication for high-stress parts like lift arms, that means inspecting grease points daily (or after every use) and adding grease as needed; referring of course to the guidelines in your operators manual.
