In the business of making and repairing tanks for 28 years, Dean Roberts Sales brought one of its sealcoating tanks to help contractors visualize what the customer-tank manufacturer can provide. Dean Roberts Sales provides skid-, truck-, and trailer-mounted tanks in addition drop-off storage tanks, in sizes from 300 to 11,000 gallons. For contractors working from the ground up, H-MACH International Inc. introduced its Cross Blade Fine Grader, which relies on a 100-hp Caterpillar diesel engine and a 10-foot sliding moldboard. With a turning radius of 8 feet, 6 inches, the Cross Blade seemed to attract quite a bit of attention from contractors looking for a compact grader. Wayne Sweepers used NPE West to introduce their new Gladiator broom sweeper to the industry and the many members of the North American Power Sweeping Association attending the show. A striking black floor model with a red slash along its side, Wayne says the Gladiator features â€œstate of the art multiplexing,â€ an hydraulic-powered water pump, and a â€œsuper-efficientâ€ oil coolants system. The bane of the paving and pavement maintenance contractor has always been weather, and while you canâ€™t control it a new service from Weatherbill Inc. might make you able to compensate for it. Another exhibitor that attracted a fair share of attention, Weatherbill Inc. is essentially an insurance program for the days when you canâ€™t work and helps protect profits from too much rain, cold or heat. Owners can cover a day, a week, a month, a project -- or an entire season â€“ and Weatherbills are flexible so contractors can match their need and budget to the coverage.
