Rental Focus on Weapons Range

July 15, 2014

Based out of Austin, TX, NEU Security Services specializes in projects at defense sites and federal buildings around the country. The project at Range 111 at Fort Carson was more earthwork than what they typically run into on most of their projects...With thousands of yards of material to move and miles of trenches to excavate, having a fleet of equipment that’s dependable and efficient to run is critical to the success of the project... NEU currently has a pair of Terex 40-ton haul trucks pulling 33yd K-Tec scrapers doing the bulk of the cut and backfill work on the project. “This is the first time I’ve used a haul truck/scraper rig for moving fill,” said Hank. “I’ve got to say that it’s been working really well. The advantages over running a straight haul truck makes it an attractive way to cut and fill. They self-load and a good operator can manage the spoil without needing a dozer to level the dump area. You can move a lot of material in a day with these rigs.”
