A Few Minutes of Equipment Inspection Each Day Can Prevent Costly Downtime

Your crews depend on your equipment to ensure that jobs are completed safely, efficiently, and in a timely manner. So what can really throw a wrench in the gears of getting things done? Equipment down time. Even top quality equipment from CASE can experience downtime when proper maintenance and servicing is overlooked.

Thankfully, equipment operators can prevent downtime, extend service life and ensure more efficient operation with just a few minutes of preventive inspection both pre- and post-operation. Those few minutes of investment in inspection are the absolute key to preventing costly downtime events.

Here are a few of the most important items we recommend for regular inspection. Continue reading

Landscaping Attachments Can Dramatically Improve Your Team’s Function without Buying a New Machine

We know that many of our landscaping customers are using one machine as the base platform for nearly every job that they come across. Whether it’s a skid steer, a compact track loader (CTL), a backhoe or a wheel, that machine with a standard bucket, can be like a Swiss army knife for lots of applications. With one machine and one bucket, you learn to make do.

But now with some amazing attachment offerings from CASE, these same customers can consider how to expand their business with simply the usage of an attachment, rather than buying another machine.

Consider these advantages that are available with the right new attachment on your trusted CASE machine:

  • The ability to increase productivity/reduce the labor costs that go into a job
  • The capacity to bid on and perform a broader variety of jobs
  • The option of reducing the total number of machines required on a jobsite and allocate laborers to other tasks
  • The opportunity to add more billable hours to a single machine (thereby lowering that machine’s total cost of ownership).

In many cases, the standard auxiliary hydraulics found on most of today’s machines are all that’s needed to use some very powerful attachments.

Let’s take a look at some of the top attachments available from CASE for landscapers. Continue reading

Forklifts from Case Offer Speed in Lifting and Moving Loads

Eagle Power and Equipment evolved from the traditional Factory owned retail facilities that were located throughout the US and Canada.   In 1996 a 25 year employee of Case, named Jerry McDonald along with his family acquired both the Montgomeryville, Pa and New Castle, DE stores and the rest is history.

Most employees had the confidence in Jerry to stay with his new company that chose to call itself Eagle Power and Equipment Corp.  They knew and appreciated the heritage of the Case Company and Eagle Power and Equipment and decided to call it home.   We at Eagle Power and Equipment Corp have many years of experience and know the product inside and out.
