Ram recalls nearly 500,000 pickups due to faulty water pump


Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling an estimated 443,712 pickups over concerns of a water pump that may overheat and cause a fire.

Affected models are 2013-2017 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups and 3500, 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs. The recall is limited to trucks equipped with 6.7-liter engines. Affected customers will be advised when service becomes available.

“Customer feedback prompted an FCA US investigation that discovered certain trucks are equipped with a water-pump bearing that, after exposure to certain conditions, may overheat and potentially cause an engine-compartment fire,” FCA stated in a press release.

FCA reports that it’s unaware of any related injuries or accidents. The automaker said that it no longer equips its vehicles with the water pump.

Compromised water-pump function may activate a warning light in an affected vehicle’s instrument cluster. Customers are urged to consult their dealers whenever they observe warning lights.

Those who have questions or concerns may call the FCA US Recall Information Center at (800)-853-1403. More of these vehicles will be recalled in Canada (est. 46,220) and some markets outside the NAFTA region (est. 4,485).

What to see at ICUEE 2017: Auto Crane, Bandit, Knapheide and Morooka in Area N


ICUEE is preparing for record exhibit space for the Oct. 3-5 Demo Show at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville. In the run-up to the show we’ll be providing a series of sneak peeks to give you an idea of what to look for at the show. To check out the rest of the ICUEE 2017 preview articles, click here.

Here is a sample of some of the equipment ICUEE attendees will see in Area N:

Auto Crane, booth N1014

Auto Crane’s NexStar crane management telematics system tracks preventive maintenance needs on cranes and accessories, allows fleet managers to monitor equipment and provides historical data on equipment. The information feeds seamlessly into third-party telematics modules that are already integrated into the trucks, the company says.

Bandit Industries, booth N1006

Bandit 12XPC chipper

Bandit’s Intimidator 12XPC hand-fed chipper is for professionals focused on trimming, but it can chip material up to 12 inches in diameter. It has a flow rate of 120 feet per minute, converting brush into dimensional chips. Along with the 12XPC, Bandit will bring its new ZT1844 track stump grinder, designed to be compact but handle large stumps.

Knapheide, booth N2046

Knapheide KMT2 mechanic truck

Knapheide plans to bring its KMT1 and KMT2 mechanic trucks. The KMT1 is designed to handle crane load capacities of up to 7,500 pounds. The KMT2 has a crane support system that transfers lift forces into the torsion box understructure and not the body to reduce the risk of damaging the body while lifting, the company says. Knapheide will also display a service body with a Dur-a-lift DTAX-39 Bucket, as well as custom utility body builds.

Morooka, booth N3103

Morooka MST1500VDL aerial carrier

Morooka USA will display its full line of new utility aerial carriers, which range from 42 to 125 feet of aerial capacity. Carrier models on display include the MST1500VDL, which accommodates aerials up to 50 feet long, and the 4500VDL, which provides a work platform for aerials up 125 feet. The carriers are powered by Caterpillar or Kubota engines and can be converted to tool carriers, among other options.

Multi Machine, Kentucky Machinery to sell and rent new Prinoth Panther T14R dumper


Prinoth’s Panther T14R Tracked Dumper

Multi Machine, which has the largest fleet of fixed and rotating tracked dumpers in North America, has added the Prinoth Panther T14R Rotating Tracked Dumper to its sales and rental inventory.

Prinoth has also added Kentucky Machinery as a new, sole dealer for the state of Kentucky, and will begin selling and leasing the tracked-vehicle manufacturer’s products in October.

Multi Machine has been the exclusive distributor of Prinoth Panther tracked dumpers since January 2016. The TR14 has a payload capacity of 30,000 pounds, a 275-horsepower diesel engine and ground pressure of less than 4 psi.

Multi Machine was founded in 1982 and took ownership of its first tracked dumper in 1994. It now has more than 200 machines. The company is based in Asbury, New Jersey, and has a satellite location in Seattle, Washington.

Kentucky Machinery’s Prinoth territory includes the entire state. The dealer’s first Panther T14R tracked dumper is scheduled to be delivered at the International Construction & Utility Equipment Exposition, or ICUEE, show to be held in Louisville. The machine will be displayed in Prinoth’s booth at N3016 October 3-5.

Kentucky Machinery is located in Richmond, Kentucky.

Home starts dip, as builder confidence is shaken by recent storms


The start of construction on new homes in the U.S. fell 0.8 percent during the month of August due to a decrease in multi-family starts. Meanwhile, single-family starts are approaching a 20 percent year-over-year improvement.

Despite the strength in single-family, the NAHB reports that builder confidence has fallen due to uncertainty caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Home starts rose to a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 1.18 million homes in August, a 1.4-percent improvement over August 2016, according to preliminary data from the Commerce Department.

Single-family home starts rose 1.6 percent during the month to a rate of 851,000. Single-family starts are up 17.1 percent from their year ago figure.

Multi-family starts fell 5.8 percent to a rate of 323,000 but have sunk 23 percent since August 2016.

Building permits, a good barometer of where the housing market is moving, rose 5.7 percent in August to a rate of 1.3 million and are up 8.3 percent from the August 2016 rate.

Builder confidence in the housing market fell slightly according to the latest NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index. Builder confidence fell three points to a 64. Any reading above a 50 indicates most home builders believe market conditions are good.

“The recent hurricanes have intensified our members’ concerns about the availability of labor and the cost of building materials,” NAHB Chairman Granger MacDonald says. “Once the rebuilding process is underway, I expect builder confidence will return to the high levels we saw this spring.”

“Despite this month’s drop, builder confidence is still on very firm ground,” says NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz. “With ongoing job creation, economic growth and rising consumer confidence, we should see the housing market continue to recover at a gradual, steady pace throughout the rest of the year.”

CDOT to provide home improvements along I-70 rebuild route


The Colorado DOT prepares for a spring start to reconstructing the outdated, congested section of Interstate 70 east of Denver.

The Colorado Department of Transportation has a long history of improving roads, but it will soon be in the business of improving homes.

The department has set aside $2.3 million to provide interior storm windows and window-mounted air conditioning units to help mitigate dust and noise during the Central 70 Project, which will reconstruct a 10-mile section of Interstate 70 east of downtown Denver. The project will be the largest in the CDOT’s history.

The city of Denver is also considering chipping in an additional $1.3 million for home improvements for residents who live near the highway’s construction path.

The CDOT told Denver7 News that it hoped to have the home improvements completed by spring, when the I-70 project is scheduled to begin.

The section of I-70 to be reconstructed handles more than 200,000 vehicles a day. The project will also include an express lane in each direction. Kiewit Meridiam Partners won the contract to design and build the $1.2 billion project.

Atlanta creates Smart Corridor to improve traffic, prepare for driverless vehicles

Atlanta has launched its new North Avenue Smart Corridor, equipping 18 intersections with advanced technology designed to improve vehicle, transit, bike and pedestrian flow and safety, and help pave the way for autonomous vehicles.

The technology includes adaptive signal systems using artificial intelligence to eliminate stops and reduce wait times by 25 percent without increasing travel speeds, according to Mayor Kasim Reed’s office.

The intersections are also equipped with a video surveillance and detection system to improve traffic safety, a connected vehicle system in which traffic signals could communicate with autonomous vehicles and driver’s smartphones and a Bluetooth travel time and origin destination system. The corridor was also updated with clear striping and signs to prepare for future driverless vehicles. A ribbon-cutting for the corridor on September 14 included autonomous-vehicle demonstrations by Tesla and Transdev.

The 2.3-mile corridor is a major artery in the city, providing a link to such institutions as Georgia Tech and The Coca-Cola Company.

Georgia Tech will partner with the city to collect and analyze data from the corridor to improve operations. The corridor is a demonstration project to make Atlanta “a national leader in the Smart Cities movement,” according to the mayor. The movement involves harnessing advanced technology to address traffic and other quality-of-life issues.

Funding for the $3 million project came from $150 million in bonds Atlanta voters approved in 2015 for road projects.

Conn. construction industry warns against transportation funding cut


The Connecticut Construction Industries Association is fighting a legislative proposal to cut transportation funding, saying it would hurt the state’s economy, according to the Hartford Courant.

The association issued a report that said the state would lose $65 billion in economic activity over 20 years if it doesn’t increase funding for roads and public transit, the Courant reports.

The association has been fighting for more transportation funding for years.

Earlier this year, it supported legislation to implement electronic tolling in Connecticut to raise revenue. In announcing its support for the bill, the association cited a study by the governor’s office that it would cost $60 billion over 30 years to maintain current levels of service for roads, buses, trains and bridges, which is twice the state’s current spending level.

MassDOT approves $41.6 million Tobin Bridge rehabilitation


Photo credit: Wikipedia Commons User Chensiyuan

The board of directors at the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) approved a $41.6 million, three-year project to rehabilitate a 1,675-foot stretch of Tobin Bridge that carries Route 1 over the Mystic River between Charlestown and Chelsea, the Boston Globe reports. The project, which will also include the repair and repaving of bridge ramps in Chelsea, is scheduled to begin in April 2018.

The lower deck of the bridge, which carries three northbound lanes leaving Boston, will undergo significant rehabilitation work, including removing concrete from the bridge, replacing a steel grate below, and refilling the concrete before repaving. One lane at a time will be closed between April and November all three years, according to transportation officials.

Southbound passengers who travel on the upper deck will have one lane closed each year as well, but only between Sunday and Thursday during overnight hours. Work on that part of the bridge is less significant and will focus on repaving.

All lanes will be open during the winter months. “Concrete work is very weather-dependent,” Thomas Donald, director of bridge project management for the department of transportation, told the news agency. “And we don’t want to have any lanes closed on the Tobin Bridge during the winter months, for snow purposes.”

During the last decade, the bridge had significant repairs that featured similar work on other sections of the bridge. More recent maintenance work was completed in 2014, including a project that converted the bridge to electronic tolling.

Contractor J.F. White, which led previous Tobin Bridge work, has been awarded the contract for the new work.

Mack unveils Anthem, a brand new on-highway tractor


Mack Trucks on Wednesday upped its ante in the company’s on-highway business with the debut of Mack’s newest, most driver-centric tractor to-date.

The Anthem model was unveiled at Mack’s Global Dealer Summit in Allentown, Penn. amid much fanfare and following nearly two months of teasers.

“For me, this is almost like Christmas Day,” Volvo Group CEO Martin Lundstedt said shortly before unveiling the truck to the company’s dealer force and gathered media.

Mack Anthem’s enhancements help improve fuel efficiency by up to 3 percent, mostly through a redesigned hood and bumper that not only improve aerodynamics, but also cut service time thanks to their three-piece design.

Designers managed to pull better fuel economy out of the truck, Mack Vice President of Global Marketing and Brand Management John Walsh said, without sacrificing Mack’s traditional body lines.

“[The Anthem] proves that a truck doesn’t have to look like a jelly bean to get great fuel economy,” he said.

“It was just fantastic,” Lundstedt said of his first reaction when he first saw the design of the new truck months ahead of its debut Wednesday. “This [truck] is Mack, and this is a platform that expresses where we are coming from but also where we are heading for the future. It’s a platform that will provide all the things we need to move forward.”

The truck’s model name, Anthem, is an homage to the company itself, which builds all its North American trucks in the Lower Macungie Township, Penn., plant.

“[The Mack Anthem] is the right highway truck for North America,” said Mack Vice President of Global Marketing and Brand Management John Walsh. “We are an American brand. We were born here. We were raised here, and we literally helped build this country. The name Anthem speaks to that American spirit.”

“If any truck deserves to be called Anthem, it is a Mack,” Mack President Denny Slagle added.

The truck was engineered with an emphasis on driver comfort and productivity and is available in day cab, an all-new 48-inch flat top sleeper and an all-new 70-inch stand-up sleeper that features 35 percent more space than previous models and 27 cubic feet of storage.

The Anthem is available with the 13-liter Mack MP8 engine with up to 505 horsepower and 1,860 lb.-ft. of torque depending on spec. Also available as an option is Mack’s 11-liter MP7 with up to 425 horsepower and 1,560 lb.-ft. of torque.

Slagle called Wednesday’s launch “a new day” and “a new start.”

“When truckers get a full view of these products, [the truck dealers’] phone won’t stop ringing,” he adds.

Anthem ultimately will replace the Pinnacle axle back model.

Mack updates Granite, Pinnacle with redesigned cabs



Mack may have debuted a new tractor, but that doesn’t mean existing models are being overlooked.

Mack Granite—the best-selling conventional straight-truck in the U.S.—and Pinnacle axle forward models will get all-new interiors and LED headlights, while Pinnacle axle forwards also get a new grille.

Pinnacle axle back models are being replaced by the new Anthem tractor and will not be updated before being shelved at year’s end. Going forward, Pinnacle axle forward models will simply be referred to as Pinnacle.

Mack used feedback from thousands of drivers to gauge their preferences to drive the design of the new Pinnacle and Granite interiors.

A new gauge cluster and dash layout improves visibility and readability, and puts frequently used controls at the driver’s fingertips. Switches are repositioned higher on the dash, while the Mack mDRIVE automated manual transmission shift pad is now within easier reach as well. The dash panel has room for up to 18 easy-to-read switches, which feature laser etched labeling that won’t rub off, even after repeated use over the life of the truck.

The new interior on Mack’s Granite and Pinnacle models.

HVAC controls now include Automatic Temperature Control that maintains the temperature set by the driver. A new lower center console includes cup holders and storage bins, and can be easily removed for cleaning. Multiple 12-volt and USB charging ports are available throughout the dash. A new non-slip pad on top of the dash features two USB charging ports.

A racecar-inspired flat-bottom steering wheel – a first for the trucking industry – improves driver comfort and makes entering and exiting the vehicle easier. The new steering wheel, which can be equipped with illuminated cruise control, Bluetooth and audio system buttons, also gives the driver a better view of the dash.

“We’ve incorporated more ergonomics and comfort features to make the driving environment more automotive,” adds Stu Russoli, Mack highway product manager.

Behind the steering wheel on an updated right-hand steering column stalk are the controls for Mack’s Co-Pilot 5-inch display. The full-color screen helps the driver monitor operating information like engine and oil temperatures, trip odometers, aftertreatment status and tire pressures. A Pre-Trip Assistant guides drivers through inspection points and includes a single person exterior light inspection mode.

A new information and entertainment option, featuring a 7-inch touchscreen display, is available in both the Pinnacle and Granite models, providing finger-tip access to Apple Car Play, satellite radio, weather band radio and TomTom truck navigation. The display is also compatible with third-party back-up camera systems.
