A SMARTER, HARDER-WORKING WHEEL LOADER For over 180 years Volvo has been a pioneer in the design and manufacture of machines that set the standard for efficiency, performance, and uptime. No other machines can rival Volvo’s reputation for engineering excellence. The H-Series wheel loaders are robust workhorses designed to make big, heavy-duty jobs manageable. New, optimized loading unit weight, and redesigned counterweight, offer unshakable stability. The Volvo L70H is so well-balanced it yields a 1.7% higher tipping load — maxing out your efficiency as the hours and days on the job add up.
Hyundai Construction Equipment offers wheel loaders, excavators, and compaction rollers to meet the harsh job site demands contractors, material handling operations, and other equipment users will likely encounter, and they’re known for their industry leading standard warranties.
On top of that Hyundai recently announced even bigger cash rebates on new and used equipment (too many models to mention) and they’re not messing around. Rebates from $1,700 on a 17z-9a mini excavator, $2,200 on a HR30t-9 roller, $20,300 on a seven cubic yard HL980 wheel loader, all the way up to $50,800; that’d be on the largest HX900 crawler excavator. Of course, there’s low rate financing available instead, just ask. Continue reading →
CLONE THYSELF, AT LAST! With New Holland’s FleetForce™ telematics, you have new super-powers: via their simple web-based solution, you (or your fleet manager) can be in two places at once! First, you can be there, watching over your machine, from inside the cab…even inside the engine; …at the same time, you can be in your command-post at HQ, changing the channel whenever you want, and “beam yourself down” to any other machine on the fleet. How great is that??

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.
WE HAD JOY WE HAD FUN… Aye…but our season in the sun is almost over. And truth be told, “pumpkin spice” time will be gone before you know it too! So now is definitely the time to start looking at options for beefing up your winter-weather fleet. The Martin implement Rental Team has several great machines and accessories for you to consider with SEASONAL rental options.
SEASONAL RENTAL? HOW DOES THAT WORK? Glad you asked! We offer great rates, and the base rates assume a minimum of a 4 month rental. There’s a maximum usage of 50 hours per month, and that amount can carryover month to month. Use in excess of the allotted 50 hours per month is billed per hour. And if you have big plans for the winter, we have even bigger savings: the seasonal deal is even sweeter on 5 units or more.
OK, SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT…SKID STEERS: Our base package is a New Holland L220 or Kubota SSV65 skid steer with heated cab, low-profile bucket, and WolfPaw high traction tires.
HYUNDAI: IT’S THE STEEL! We’re going to kick this off with a direct quote from Hyundai’s own product literature, a fun little item that caught our eye right off the bat:
Hyundai construction equipment is manufactured with the highest grade of steel due to Hyundai’s dominance in the steel and shipbuilding industries. Rigid cycle testing, heat testing, vibration testing and shock load testing is conducted in the design and manufacturing process of all new models insuring optimum durability and reliability.
For those of us here at Fully Equipped that sentence says a ton and suggests even more. Actually, several tons: at 29,321 lbs., we get 14.66 tons, on our calculator. And, as you can see from the picture, all that steel has been forged with purpose. At Hyundai, great steel means great mettle — and great versatility as well!
The 2019 APWA Chicago Metro Chapter Expo and Conference is happening next week in Villa Park starting May 22nd. It’s your chance to visit the latest and greatest equipment, people and technologies in Public Works, connect with friends, and take in the educational program topics lined up for you. We’ll be there, so say hello and spend some time with us. We’ll have equipment from New Holland and Kubota at our booth.
The Loader Roadeo promises to be a must-see this year. All drivers will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win great prizes. The Loader Roadeo competition is happening on Wednesday, and the NEW Backhoe Roadeo as well. Skilled drivers tackle the obstacle courses laid out for them in either front-end loaders or backhoe loaders. You’ll see one of the latest Hyundai wheel loader models battle it out on the front end loader courses again this year! And we’ll have a fierce New Holland backhoe take on the backhoe courses. Snowplow Roadeo? Of course! That’s on Thursday.
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:
