We were privileged to visit one of our newest, and most unique, Kubota owners recently. Carol is a 75 year old retired chemist, college horticulture department educator and Penn State Master Gardener. She and her husband recently purchased a home in Quakertown, PA whose yard they wanted to completely transform into the all-season, native pollinator, garden of their dreams. Only problem: the incredibly rocky soil they need to dig through.
A firm believer in getting the right tool for the job, Carol upgraded their rototiller to a brand new Kubota U10-5 mini-excavator from Eagle Power & Equipment. Her operating confidence on her “Rolls Royce of gardening tools” grows by the day, as does her grandkids’ excitement when they drive past construction sites as they believe their grandma helps out on those jobsites with her U10.
Nothing is better than seeing all the projects our equipment gets to work on for their operators. Sometimes those jobs can change entire miles of landscape, other times they make all the difference on matters close to home. We’re proud to help give you the tools to build the landscape of your dreams!
Ready To Haul Safe!
We want to thank Pennsylvania LICA, The Pennsylvania State Police, and you our guests for making our DOT Equipment Hauling seminar a fantastic success! Thank you for letting us turn our shop into a classroom for an evening to help our industry move equipment on the roads responsibly.
We’ll be looking forward to hosting this event again in the future.

Skid Steer Loaders are extremely popular and versatile pieces of construction equipment that are a common sight on construction and industrial sites. Sometimes referred to simply as a “bobcat” or “skid steer” for short, these compact machines can be incredibly useful, either on their own or by supplementing heavier machines and gear.
One of the benefits of this particular piece of equipment is that it comes equipped either with wheels or a track, making it very adaptable to different forms of terrain. Skid steer loaders are smaller than most heavy construction loaders, comprised of an operator cab situated over an engine enclosure with a pair of load-lifting arms on either side of the machine. This smaller structure makes it very useful in enclosed areas, increasing its ability to function in cramped quarters or locations.
Kubota’s Machine Adventures comes to a close in Easton, PA. Owen from our Turf & Tractor division was on hand to help move all the equipment out for transport to its next tour stop.
While it is a little sad to see it end we’re overjoyed with the number of folks who visited the Crayola Experience specifically to partake in this event. We hope many happy memories were made, we’ll be here to help other #kubota dreams come true!
Safe travels to Plano, Texas!

Backhoes and excavators are two of the most common types of heavy construction equipment, but, due to the similar nature of the work they do, it’s not uncommon for them to be confused with one another. If you’re not a construction professional who deals with these machines on a daily basis, the distinct differences between the two machines might be hard to discern.
Backhoes and excavators are both highly useful pieces of machinery with different qualities, benefits, and limitations. But the design, dimensions, and abilities of these two workhorses are different. When deciding which of the two would be best suited to a particular job or task, it’s important to know what they can do, and why. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at these two pieces of gear, to help choose the right machine for your job.
The mini excavator is known by many names: the compact or small excavator, the mini digger, mini ex, or the mini hoe. But under any name, the mini excavator is a powerful and efficient machine that offers contractors and other professionals plenty of power and flexibility in a compact package, making them perfect for a variety of tasks. With its short arm radius and low weight, the mini excavator can easily maneuver through tight spaces while providing ample power to get the job done. Whether you’re working on a small residential project or need a machine for heavy-duty construction work, the mini excavator might be the perfect option.

Construction project management typically involves overseeing the budget, working with owners, designers, and engineers, hiring subcontractors, scheduling and planning work, and ensuring materials and equipment are delivered to the project site on time. To be successful, you must be able to successfully complete your project within the budget and on time

The summer months pose special hazards to workers. Beyond making sure your equipment is ready to operate safety in the heat, companies and employees can also take proactive steps to minimize the harm from the summer sun.
Preventing Heat Related Illnesses:
The combination of heat and humidity can be a serious health threat during the summer months. If you work outside (for example, at a beach resort, on a farm, at a construction site) or in a kitchen, laundry, or bakery you may be at increased risk for heat related illness. So, take precautions. Here’s how:
