Soon we’ll be at Goodmark Nurseries in Wonder Lake for ILCA Summer Field Day. It’s the top outdoor landscape event we like to attend, and we’re always excited to show our landscape equipment. Make sure you stop by our booth (that’ll be booth #500) to say hi and then visit the demo site with us and run some machines.
The event is Thursday, August 1st. If you haven’t registered for the Summer Field Day yet head overhere. Register now though if you’re planning the BBQ, Italian, or Mexican food lunch + beer garden (and why not?). You can check out the schedule of events on the website here.
With twelve years of experience at Martin Implement, Chuck is well prepared to lead the service department at our Orland Park flagship location. His equipment repair knowledge is vast and his commitment to assisting customers is top notch as evidenced by some of the accolades he’s received:
“Chuck is awesome! Very thorough; looks for other issues needing attention and explains things to me. He is the lynch pin to your business.” -Patrick Buescher, Landscaping by Buescher
45 BILLION…YEP, THAT’S BILLION, WITH A B We know that most of our customers benefit, directly or indirectly, whenever building gets booming. Roads, buildings, bridges, airports…all good. But that also means brush-cutting, turf, trees, mulch, and planting (and cutting!) the grass. Whether you’re clearing the way, building the frame, or planting the grass…all of this growth is GOOD.
So of course, it was a little bit like Christmas in June for our customers when Illinois’ new Governor signed the 45 Billion infrastructure plan into law last week. As Chicago Construction News pointed out, this was the state’s first Capital Bill in ten years, so this one’s been a long time coming. Chicago Construction also provided this further breakdown on the projects for which these funds have been earmarked:
NEW HOLLAND B95C: YOU CAN DIG IT With a building boom developing here in Illinois we thought it would be a good idea to feature a powerful and versatile building machine here in the Fully Equipped Product Spotlight. And the New Holland B95C more than fits the bill. A super-powerful and agile backhoe and material handler, this is a thoroughbred that can quickly become the hardest worker on your team.
RENT FOR A WEEK, GET AN EXTRA DAY FREE Starting May 1st and running through July 30, 2019, when you rent a Hyundai wheel loader from Martin Implement for a week, you’ll get an extra day free. One free day for soil moving, gravel dumping, rock redistribution, or anything else you need major muscle for.
PUT THE LOAD RIGHT ON ME…We have these great Hyundais in our wheel loader Rental Fleet:
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.
TAKE OFF WITH THE KUBOTA SZ STAND-ON MOWERS! We were supposed to have flying cars by now. Instead, it seems, we have drones. Not much of a consolation prize really. …But if you want to get the feeling of piloting a flying vehicle, we have a suggestion: try gliding around on some turf with the new Kubota SZ series stand-on mowers. These big orange machines are so smooth, agile, fast and intuitive, you may never want to step down.
