CASE Wins 2019 Good Design Award for Methane-Powered Wheel Loader Concept, ProjectTETRA

CASE Construction Equipment has received the prestigious Good Design® Award for its methane-powered wheel loader concept from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.

CASE Construction Equipment received the prestigious Good Design® Award for ProjectTETRA, the methane-powered wheel loader concept that provides an insight into a sustainable, connected and technologically advanced future of construction.

The Good Design® program is the oldest design awards program, organized by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, and recognizes the best designed products across the globe for sustainability, superior design and unparalleled function. The jury of the 69th Good Design program, composed of renowned international specialists with broad design experience, selected this year’s winners following the original program’s criteria, which include the innovation, functional and ecological impact of each winning product. As a winner of the award, ProjectTETRA will be featured in the Good Design Yearbook for 2019-2020 and can be viewed at the Museum’s website at https://www.good-designawards.com/.

The CASE wheel loader concept, jointly developed by the CASE engineering and CNH Industrial international design teams, reimagines wheel loader design. It demonstrates the viability of alternative fuels in construction equipment and the feasibility of using fuel generated from waste products and renewable sources. It is powered by a proven methane engine, produced by sister brand FPT Industrial, that delivers the same performance as its diesel equivalent. The innovative design includes cutting-edge styling and an advanced operator environment that makes extensive use of touchscreen and voice control technologies. The concept also offers innovative safety features that use biometric technologies and an obstacle detection system derived from CNH Industrial’s autonomous vehicle research and development program.

The CASE methane-powered wheel loader concept has been tested in real-world construction environments, demonstrating its feasibility and proving its business case in terms of sustainability, reduced overall Total Cost of Ownership and operational viability.

Miller-Bradford & Risberg Supports Team Rubicon in Response to Severe Storm Damage in Northeast Wisconsin

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Miller-Bradford & Risberg supported Team Rubicon’s second wave of response to severe storms that originally hit the area in July 2019, including five tornadoes, that caused severe damage across Langlade and Oconto Counties in northeast Wisconsin.
The severe storms and tornadoes uprooted or snapped tens of thousands of trees, devastating wide swaths of forest land. Areas sustaining significant damage included recreational areas such as ATV and snowmobile trails that are important to the tourism economy in the area — especially throughout the winter. During the 10-day operation, 76 Team Rubicon volunteers worked to clear dozens of miles of recreational trails, many of which were completely unpassable.
On some trails, including the Crocker Hills Glacier Trail in Lily, Wisconsin, trees and limbs formed walls across the trail taller than 20 feet. To clear the trails, Team Rubicon sawyers partnered with heavy equipment teams that operated CASE compact track loaders and excavators provided by Miller-Bradford. As the sawyer teams would cut trees into movable sizes, the CASE CTLs and excavators pushed the debris to the side of the trail, making it passable and usable once again for ATVs and snowmobiles.
“We were keenly aware of the impacts that the storms and tornadoes had on the state and the communities that were hit,” said Dan Soley, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Miller-Bradford & Risberg. “We know the financial and long-term economic impacts that these natural disasters have on local communities – especially those dependent on tourism – so providing equipment for the clean-up efforts was our way of letting those people know that we have their backs.”

According to estimates, hundreds of thousands of trees were downed during the mid-July storms, which produced winds of greater than 100 miles-per-hour.

CASE Dealer Ina Store Supports Team Rubicon and Habitat for Humanity for Baldwin, Michigan Veterans’ Village

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Ina Store supplied a compact track loader and grapple bucket to Team Rubicon for a land clearing project in Baldwin, Michigan. The site will be developed by Habitat for Humanity of Lake County Michigan into a new Veterans Village development that provides 850-to-1,000-square-foot homes for qualified veterans, active military and spouses of those who have served.

Team Rubicon deployed sawyer teams and heavy equipment operators to clear the area, allowing the first phase of the project to move forward.

 

In the years to come, the partnering agencies expect the overall operation to be a multi-year endeavor. Historically, Lake County, Michigan, where Baldwin is located, is among the most economically disenfranchised with higher-than-normal unemployment, leaving considerable service needs such as veteran housing unmet.

The overall operation presented a great opportunity for Ina Store, located in neighboring Osceola County, to step-up and supply heavy equipment from CASE for the effort.

“We live, work and have raised families in this region of Michigan, and the opportunity to give back to an ambitious project that will help bring important services to our military veterans was a no-brainer,” said Dean Smallegan, vice president at Ina Store. “We look forward to seeing this project come to life in the coming months and years.”

Shawn Washington, the executive director of Lake County Habitat For Humanity, has a grand vision for the overall project. In addition to the single-block operation with Team Rubicon, she plans to engage the veteran-led disaster response and community service organization in prepping other sites throughout the community that would be part of the project. The operation is a perfect fit due to unlimited time constraints, which would allow volunteers to also deploy to higher-priority disaster response situations, as needed.

CASE Partners with Country Music Singer Jon Pardi; Announces Exclusive Heartache Medication Tour Presale Opportunity

Jon Pardi

CASE Construction Equipment is partnering with country music superstar Jon Pardi on a series of promotions throughout 2019 and 2020 focused on raising awareness for, and growing interest in, careers in the construction industry. The first promotion includes an exclusive presale opportunity for Pardi’s headlining Heartache MedicationTour, kicking off October 1 in Nashville. Timed to his headlining tour, the CMA and ACM Award-winning artist also recently announced the launch of his highly anticipated next album and title-track, “Heartache Medication”, which is the follow up to his #1 Platinum-selling breakthrough album “California Sunrise”. To listen to “Heartache Medication”, visit http://strm.to/HeartacheMedicationPR.

CASE will announce a series of related promotions and opportunities in the coming months, and in the lead-up to the construction industry’s biggest event: CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020.

Pardi grew up in Northern California — his father is a contractor who taught him the value of hard work (and how to operate equipment) at a young age. It’s that background that served as the foundation for a partnership with CASE, and a desire to highlight the importance of education and training in the skilled trades.

“My dad taught me the value of hard work growing up, and we were surrounded by construction and agriculture throughout California — it’s those people and experiences that made me who I am, and it’s what resonates with our audiences,” says Pardi. “It’s an honor to work with CASE to highlight great careers in these fields, and to help connect people with ways to learn more on tour this fall.”Jon

Pardi and CASE are offering those in the construction industry an exclusive presale on tickets for the Heartache Medication Tour at www.jonpardi.com/splash using the password CASEPARDI. Presale dates for the bulk of the tour will be from 10 AM to 10 PM (all times local) on May 30, with additional presale dates taking place June 6 (Seattle and San Diego) and June 20 (Phoenix).

CASE Dealer Border Equipment Provides Two CTLs to Help Team Rubicon with Patriot South National Training Exercise

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Border Equipment recently provided Team Rubicon with a pair of s equipped with grapple buckets as the organization participated in the national, multi-agency Patriot South training operation. The Savannah, Georgia-based operation focused on disaster response coordination between organizations like Team Rubicon and local, state and federal agencies.
During the exercise at Oatland Island Wildlife Refuge, which was hit by an EF-1 tornado last July, participants from Team Rubicon converged with Air and Army National Guard units from across the country in simulated natural disaster recovery and response. The CASE TR270 compact track loaders were used for debris removal, demolition, and home repair scenarios.
“These training missions are part of what makes Team Rubicon great at what they do, and why they’re relied on as a trusted partner by national and international agencies when disaster strikes,” said Michel Marchand, vice president – North America, CASE Construction Equipment. “We appreciate the team at Border Equipment for providing the CTLs that helped make the operation a success.”
Overall, roughly 70 Team Rubicon members participated in the operations, which included using the CASE TR270s to clear brush, storm-damaged trees, and to create an access road and walking trail to the site.
