VIDEO: Skid-steer operator log rolls a pipe in overdramatic beam balancing TV stunt


Anyone who’s ever hopped inside a skid steer knows what nimble machines they can be. And chances are you’ve seen at least one or two videos floating around the internet of these compact loaders performing tricks on two wheels. The operator in the video below has decided to put both his skill and the skid steer’s nimble qualities to the test by attempting to log roll a pipe to cross a 72-foot spanse on parallel beams.

The stunt comes from China’s state-sponsored television outlet CCTV and leans a bit heavily into the dramatics, as you might expect. There’s little reason to fear for the operator however, as he and the loader are suspended by heavy duty support cables from above. The cables are put to the test by the way. The operator’s first attempt fails and as the pipe falls to the floor below, the cables hold strong, leaving the loader dangling gently in the air.

The operator’s next attempt is a success. So what do you think? Impressive? Easy? Let us know in the comments.

New green beam lasers from Spectra Precision make indoor alignment lines easier to see


Spectra Precision LT52G Point and Crossline laser.

For those of you fortunate enough to score an indoor job this summer, Trimble introduced a new Spectra Precision green beam laser line. Green laser beams are easier to see than red beams and well suited for interior conditions with strong ambient light.

The Spectra Precision LT52G is both a five-beam laser pointer and a horizontal and vertical crossline laser. With it you can lay out walls, do horizontal and vertical leveling and 90-degree squaring. The other tool in the lineup, the Spectra Precision LT58G, gives you a horizontal plane intersected by two vertical planes spaced 90 degrees apart. This provides reference points for a variety of interior layout tasks. Both lasers come with mounting accessories and a hard carrying case.

The tools’ automatic self-leveling lets you set up and get to work fast. If some clumsy drywall dude happens to bump your laser, it gives you an “out of level” warning. If somebody on your crew drops your laser from a height of up to one meter, you should fire them, but according to the company a drop from that height won’t hurt the device.

The same tools are also available as red-beam lasers at a lower price when visibility conditions are not a factor.

Dealer McCann Industries expands Ind. territory, names Wolford account manager


McCann Industries is expanding its territory as the exclusive dealer for Case equipment to include four more counties in Indiana: LaPorte, Marshall, St. Joseph and Stark.

The company says that all equipment sales, parts and service will be provided by McCann throughout this area from its location in Schererville, Indiana at 1133 Indianapolis Boulevard.

Kevin Walford is the account rep for new counties added by McCann Industries to its Indiana territory.

Kevin Wolford has recently joined McCann as account manager for these counties.

“We are honored that Case has expanded our Indiana territory and very happy that Kevin will be representing us in the area,” says Jim McCann, president and CEO at McCann Industries.

“With 17 years of heavy equipment sales experience in the territory, Kevin’s knowledge and expertise will be extremely valuable as we get to know our new customers.”

Before joining McCann, Wolford was a sales representative for a heavy equipment dealer in Indiana.

In addition to offering the full line of Case construction equipment at its Schererville location, the company says, McCann stocks an extensive inventory of parts for quick deliveries and provides on-site service for routine maintenance and emergency repairs.

An extensive rental fleet is available. Certified technicians work with any brand or model of heavy equipment.

McCann’s roots go back to ’67 in Illinois

The company roots trace back to when Jim McCann’s father, the late Richard “Dick” McCann, founded McCann Construction Specialities Company in 1967 in Villa Park, Illinois.

Over the next 30 years, Dick McCann led the expansion of the company to represent manufacturers of construction products and light equipment. McCann Power & Equipment was established in 1995 with the acquisition of three Case Construction Equipment dealerships in Illinois and Indiana.

Five years later, the two companies merged to become McCann Industries Inc., providing a full range of equipment, contractor supplies and services for the construction industry.

McCann Industries locations include seven throughout the Chicago area. Equipment manufacturers include Case, Takeuchi, Wacker Neuson, ICS, Allen Engineering, Sullair and Husqvarna.

Higher gas prices won’t keep near-record number of Americans from Memorial Day travel; delays could triple


More than 41.5 million Americans will travel this Memorial Day weekend, nearly 5 percent more than last year and the most in more than a dozen years, according to AAA.

Delays on major roads could be up to three times longer than normal, with the busiest days being Thursday and Friday (May 24-25) as commuters mix with holiday travelers.

“The highest gas prices since 2014 won’t keep travelers home this Memorial Day weekend,” says Bill Sutherland, senior vice president, AAA Travel and Publishing. “A strong economy and growing consumer confidence are giving Americans all the motivation they need to kick off what we expect to be a busy summer travel season with a Memorial Day getaway.”

To compile this forecast, AAA turned to INRIX, a global transportation company that specializes in connected car services and transportation analytics.

AAA forecasts these statistics for the holiday weekend:

  • Automobiles: The vast majority of travelers – 36.6 million – will hit the road this Memorial Day, which is t 4.7 percent more than last year.
  • Planes: 1 million people will travel by air, a 6.8 percent increase and the fifth year of consecutive air travel volume increases.
  • Trains, Buses and Cruise Ships: Travel across these sectors will increase by 2.4 percent to 1.8 million passengers.

INRIX, in collaboration with AAA, predicts drivers will experience the greatest amount of congestion on Thursday, May 24 and Friday, May 25, especially in the late afternoon as commuters leave work early and mix with holiday travelers.

Several major U.S. metros could experience double the travel times compared to a normal trip, while New Yorkers could see three times the delay, AAA says.

“Ranked the most congested country in the world, U.S. drivers are all too familiar with sitting in traffic,” says Graham Cookson, chief economist and bead of research for INRIX.

“Drivers should expect congestion across a greater number of days than in previous years, with the getaway period starting on Wednesday, May 23. Our advice to drivers is to avoid peak commute times in major cities altogether – traveling late morning or early afternoon – or plan alternative routes.”

Higher gas prices not deterring travelers

The 88 percent of travelers choosing to drive will pay the most expensive Memorial Day gas prices since 2014. Gas prices averaged $2.72 in April, an increase of 33 cents from last year, due to expensive crude oil, record gasoline demand and shrinking global supply.

However, these higher prices are not keeping holiday travelers home, with automobile travel expected to increase for the fourth straight year.

Before heading out on a road trip this Memorial Day, download the free AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android. Travelers can use the app to map a route, find the lowest gas prices, access exclusive member discounts, make travel arrangements, request AAA roadside assistance, find AAA Approved Auto Repair facilities and more.

Galveston County officials decide on less expensive Pelican Island Bridge proposal


The current Pelican Island drawbridge.

Galveston County (Texas) commissioners voted to approve a resolution supporting the “continued pursuit and development” of the $91 million, 75-foot high Pelican Island Bridge, The Houston Chronicle reports. By selecting the $91 million conventional bridge, rather than the $217 million land bridge proposal that would allow for future development of a rail line, plans for a future rail line have been put on hold.

According to the news agency, the cost of the land bridge was too high, and there was too much opposition from local environmentalists who believe a land bridge would endanger the health of Galveston Bay. But some county officials are holding for help from the private sector to possibly develop a separate land bridge with rail in the future.

“The [$91 million proposal] allows us to come back with a land bridge later,” said County Commissioner Ken Clark. “I believe that, and as we move through the design, I’m going to push for that feature.”
