Hog Crusher Recycler

EZ Grout Corp.
Waterford, Ohio

EZ Grout Corp. introduces the new and improved Hog Crusher Recycler, model HCR50. Much like the original Hog Crusher, this unit is equipped to attach to a skidsteer and crush jobsite debris of blocks, bricks, asphalt, and unreinforced concrete into two-inch minus pieces to be used as site-fill material. However, the HCR50 is equipped with several improvements to increase power and wear components. This includes a larger hydraulic motor for increased torque for skid steers with 25GPM or more; and heavier duty construction of wear components such as breaker plate, breaker plate comb, cheek plates, secondary breaker, discharge screen and much more.

Checkmate Toolroom

Dynamic Systems Inc.
Redmond, Wash.

Checkmate Toolroom
Checkmate Toolroom
Checkmate Toolroom is designed to keep track of tools, equipment and consumables: who has them, when they were checked out and when they are due back. A barcode is scanned to identify the employee or job, and another is scanned to identify the equipment. Tools may be checked out in bulk, using the Kitting capability; and maintenance and calibration can be tracked using the Maintenance Scheduler. The use of barcode for transactions has proven to be 60 percent faster than manual check out and virtually 100 percent accurate. As an example, Thrasher Basement Systems, a contracting company that specializes in the repair and remodeling of basements and foundations, has saved more than 20 percent on tool costs since installing Checkmate Toolroom.
