How Logic Controls Revolutionize the Job Site



Construction demands that you be on your A-game, physically and mentally. The last thing a foreman or contractor needs is additional difficulties, when they already have to face tough profit margins, a tight labor market and declining worker retention. Overcoming these woes means dedication and efficiency, and new programmable logic controls (PLC) systems can be a boost to efficiency when it comes to handling an important piece of equipment, the crane.

Cranes are workhorses, but they can also be dangerous to their operators and other people on the job site. PLC systems address these issues head-on, by requiring fewer people to move a greater amount of material and creating a better vantage point for operators when equipped with radio-remote controls. When a good portion of time on construction sites is spent waiting for materials, speeding up handling while limiting injury potential is a huge plus.

Injuries are costly, and material handling makes up most injuries on any given site. When you have an intuitive piece of technology providing warnings, you can identify issues before they happen and diligently work to prevent them. One PLC system, Venturo Logic Controls™ (VLC), incorporates vehicle grade stability readings, overload warnings and alert lights that provide operators a chance to step in and prevent accidents.

Some advances in job site technology can add frustration and a learning curve. In such a case, what is meant to make processes easier may accomplish the opposite. This is not true of PLC, or more specifically VLC. The VLC’s pistol-grip controller includes easy-to-read alerts and comfortable control through a simple interface.

Efficiency, worker satisfaction and safety are all paramount in construction. At least in terms of crane operation, we are developing a better way forward.

Spitzlift Crane for Vans

 

The SpitzLift 3-foot fold down crane is the ideal lifting solution for vans and enclosed service vehicles. Here’s why:
  • when not in use the crane stores neatly out of the way to maximize workflow (takes up less than 12″ of cargo space)
  • user-friendly design allows for simple set up to the operational and fold-down positions
  • easily spec’ed in with shelving units or other accessory items
  • adds less than 100 lbs. of payload to the vehicle
  • robust 650 lb. load capacity
Our standard 3-foot crane is also a great option should you not need the fold-down feature. Our standard cranes have a load capacity of up to 1,000 lbs. When not in use, the crane can be conveniently folded and stowed away in a SpitzLift carrying case. Every SpitzLift is load tested, comes with a load test certification, and meets ASME & OSHA standards. Carrying case sold separately. Hardware kits are OEM specific for easy installation. Call a SpitzLift application expert to find the perfect solution for your service van.

Winter Tire Test: Some Treads Are Better Than Others



By Bruce W. Smith

Every so often I find myself checking out the tires of the vehicles around me when stopped in traffic, wondering how this or that one performs compared to the factory tires on my pickup truck. My questions become even more pointed in winter: Should I invest in a set of winter tires? Would mud tires be a good choice or all-terrain? Would it be worth the investment to buy a dedicated snow tire and run them half the year?

To find out, we went to the snow-covered hills just a few miles outside Steamboat Springs, Colo. Carved into the deep snow were three perfectly groomed snow courses with big berms and a variety of twists, turns and elevation changes. These tracks are the training grounds for the Bridgestone Winter Driving School. They also serve as the perfect location to test tires — and for us to see how popular pickup tire tread patterns compare when pitted against each other under controlled winter driving conditions.

And even though it's spring, the information we're offering here should help you decide what kind of tires you want next winter.

The Contenders
We spent two days this past winter with Woody Rogers and T.J. Campbell, product information specialists for Tire Rack, comparing popular 275/65R18 tires on a twisting, curving half-mile section of track three behind the wheel of two identical 2016 Ford F-150 4x4s. The tire comparison contenders were:

  • Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT OWL SL (P-metric)
  • Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 SL (P-metric)
  • Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT LT (E load range)
  • BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 RWL LT (C load range)
  • Firestone Destination MT LT (E load range)
