LIUGONG NA WELCOMES NEW DEALER JEWELL MACHINERY

LiuGong North America, a wholly owned subsidiary of LiuGong Machinery based in Liuzhou, China, a manufacturer of heavy construction equipment announced Jewell Machinery of Rocky Mount, Virginia, has joined the LiuGong NA family of dealerships.

Founded in 2000, Jewell Machinery sells parts and machinery, and manufactures, services and rents machinery and equipment for the construction and forestry industry within a 300-mile radius of its headquarters in Rocky Mount, Virginia. The company has twice been named to Inc. 5000’s list of fastest-growing private companies in America.

Founder and President Michael Jewell said Jewell Machinery’s growth has always been driven by its commitment to meeting customer need. Although the dealer entered the forestry industry just 10 years ago, those customers represent approximately 95 percent of business today. Jewell Machinery specializes in mobile and stationary loaders and is the OEM manufacturer of self-propelled carriers for the brand.

When Jewell learned forestry customers would prefer a more convenient way to source their heavy equipment rather than deal with multiple dealerships, his search for the most suitable manufacturer led him to LiuGong NA.

“We see an exciting opportunity here,” Jewell said. “LiuGong has an extensive equipment line, really anything our customers need, from Dressta dozers to LiuGong wheel loaders, excavators and more.”

Jewell said the LiuGong machines have been well received. “We’ve had LiuGong machines here four weeks now. All it takes is getting them in the seat. Once they get behind the controls, operate the machine, they love them right away.”

The LiuGong NA product lines are made specifically for the North American market. Jewell said it makes the LiuGong machines easy to work with. “They have Cummins engines and ZF transmissions. Our service personnel are Cummins-certified, and we have the exact same ZF transmissions on the undercarriages we manufacture ourselves right here. They are just a perfect fit for us.”

Plus, Jewell said, LiuGong is “very open with what they build, not trying to hide anything.” He explained that means service personnel can perform diagnostics on the machines without the need for specialized OEM training or access to guarded, proprietary coding systems. “LiuGong doesn’t ‘overcomplicate’ its machines,” he said. “They give owners exactly what they need and nothing that they don’t want or would not use.” It simplifies operator training requirements and contributes to easier servicing.

Jewell Machinery is dedicated to serving the forestry and construction industries. In addition to being a LiuGong authorized dealer, Jewell is also an authorized Barko Hydraulics dealer. Jewell services, repairs and sells a variety of other brand-name equipment. Its facilities include a 19,000-square-foot store and new 22,000-square-foot shop with 13 service bays. Services of its 22 full-time employees include the capability to fabricate or modify equipment to specific customer requirements including the LiuGong machines, “If they need a wheel loader, for instance, with something other than a bucket, we can do that.”

KOBELCO Announces Enhanced SK850LC-10

KOBELCO Construction Machinery USA is pleased to introduce the enhanced SK850LC-10 excavator. The SK850LC-10 is the largest KOBELCO Generation 10 model and features cutting-edge power.

The SK850LC-10 is more durable and able to withstand the rigors of tough job sites. This KOBELCO excavator delivers a  bucket digging force of 90,598-lbs to achieve impressive work volume. Premier working ranges and a powerful 146,800-lb drawbar pull force enable the SK850LC-10 to operate in rough terrain and on slopes with increased productivity.

This robust, 185,700-lb unit is powered by a 510-hp Tier IV Final HINO engine, allowing it to tackle heavy-duty applications while remaining highly fuel efficient. While operating in ECO-mode, the SK850LC-10 boasts an impressive ~17% improvement in fuel economy compared to its predecessor. This boost in efficiency is a result of an enhanced hydraulic line layout that further reduces energy loss to ensure outstanding performance. A variable-geometry turbocharger also helps to lower fuel consumption, and a new selective catalytic reduction system decreases NOx emissions by 80% to provide low operation emissions.

An improved lever control force of 25% further lessens operator fatigue during long hours of operation, while added climate control outlets and an expanded cab interior provide a pleasant work environment. A FOPS top guard, rear-view camera and swing flashers come standard on the SK850LC-10 to enhance job site safety.

Maintenance on the SK850LC-10 is simple and cost-effective. Easy access to maintenance data from the operation management system greatly improves ease of maintenance scheduling and ensures a long service life, while easy access to the cooling unit, engine compartment and electrical components ensure convenient day-to-day maintenance.

KOBELCO Construction Machinery USA offers crawler excavators in the 3,000 lb. to 245,000 lb. classes including zero tail swing, compact, standard, long-reach, mass excavation, and demolition models. Well-known as the excavator authority, KOBELCO is committed to producing quality machines with advanced productivity-boosting features and innovative technologies.

Summerfest and Association of Equipment Manufacturers Announce Sponsorship and Manufacturing Day Admission Promotion

Summerfest and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) announced a new AEM Manufacturing Day sponsorship and Admission Promotion in celebration of the association’s 125th-anniversary celebration this year.

“For this milestone anniversary we wanted to bring awareness to the community about the impact of manufacturing,” said Nicole Hallada, vice president of marketing at AEM. “We felt Summerfest and its ability to bring together a diverse audience was a perfect opportunity to tell the story of how 1.3 million men and women make the equipment America needs to build and feed our nation.”

AEM will also be onsite on June 28th, displaying full-size construction and agriculture equipment. Summerfest attendees are invited to take their photo with the equipment and post it to their social media accounts with the hashtag #AEMMfgDay between noon and 6 p.m. One winner will be randomly drawn each hour for a special gift.

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).
