Company Wrench not only offers the lease, sale, and rental of various attachments and equipment, they also work with customers to implement new ideas to make the job more profitable and go more smoothly. These ideas come from C.W. Machine Worx, Company Wrench’s very own manufacturing branch. Its engineering and fabrication department has the experience, the latest in CAD software, and a 15,000-square-foot fabrication shop to provide the best conversion services and most innovative product designs in the heavy equipment industry. Some of their innovations include custom built High Reach machines that reach up to 95 feet, custom Long Reach machines, Dual Pin Booms-for extended reach, and patented or patent-pending items like the 2nd member hammer bracket, the CP100 Magnet Combo, and the HAWC and NEW Mini HAWC dust suppression machine.
HIGH-PRESSURE AIR WATER CANNON
The HAWC, or High-pressure Air Water Cannon, was designed and patented to provide large volumes of properly sized mist droplets, and to eject mist so as to cover very large areas or serve very large volumes, such as those presented in demolition operation wherein larger buildings are brought down and eject large volumes of particulate matter as they fall. In addition, it was designed to be able to direct and redirect misting fluids toward different areas or through different volumes with the option of varying heights at any given jobsite. The design also provides automatic and/or reciprocating sweep angles in the misting output. This reduces labor in applications where otherwise an operator would have to be on station to constantly vary the aim of the mist output. Another benefit to the design is the ability to vary the overall mist output and output throw distance depending upon the given application.
The Mini-HAWC, which was unveiled at ConExpo 2014, was designed using the new Cummins QSF2.8 Tier 4 Final diesel power unit. This new engine basically offers low emissions and fuel cost without sacrificing power. Even though this new HAWC unit is more compact, it still generates 30,000+ cfm’s and has of water throw of 200 feet. It also has a newly designed in-line filter and has an electronically controlled water shut-off system. This new version of the HAWC will be in production mid-year 2014.
CP100 MAGNET COMBO
The patented CP100 Magnet Combo is another unique attachment designed by C.W. Machine Worx that can crush concrete and sort rebar at the same time. See how this attachment can save time and money by watching the video located on Company Wrench’s website.
2ND MEMBER HAMMER MACHINE
The new 2nd member hammer machine is a breakthrough in engineering and design in the world of heavy equipment. This newly engineered 2nd Member Hammer Bracket setup has the ability to mount a 16,000 lb/ft hammer on a 108,000 lb. machine, instead of using the same hammer on a 193,000 lb. machine. Renting this machine can save big money on fuel and transportation costs by using a smaller machine to run a larger attachment. There is also an actioned packed video of the 2nd member hammer machine at a demolition site in Carroll, Ohio.

REBAR CONNECTION SYSTEMS: THE KLIP THAT GRIPS
With the Kodi Klip, you’ll get faster, safer, and more stable rebar connections, all for a lower total cost than other methods. The unique patented design is made from polycarbonate resin, the same material used in bulletproof glass. The klips will not rust, nor will they scratch or damage coated rebar and fiberglass reinforcing rods.
Time is money. Get more done with the same number of workers.
Bid out more jobs and get them done faster.
The versatility allows for cross, parallel, and vertical connections, and form spacers. Great for mats and cages. A secure four-way grip holds tight, which eliminates racking and creates a stable connection that maintains its shape. Lift mats and cages with ease. The klips snap into position and grip the rebar. The klips are also color-coded for each size. Bright colors simplify handling and inspection.
The applicator makes using the klips easy, taking just minutes to learn. The lightweight and compact design reduces worker fatigue. Quick loading with the collated klips is a plus.
- SAVE TIME: The Kodi Klip System is significantly faster than wire tying. There has never been a faster way to connect rebar.
- SAVE MONEY: Reduce risks of injuries to rod workers caused by cuts, bending, and repetitive motion; lower workers’compensation premiums. Cut costs by avoiding the expensive, higher-grade rebar required for welding.
- PROMOTE HEALTH AND SAFETY: Reduce bruises from kneeling, back injuries from bending, cuts from wire, and burns from welding.
KODI KLIP STORY
“I was working with my crew tying on a footing for what is now a Harley Davidson shop,” remembers Jon Kodi, a general contractor with 35 years in the construction business whose family built much of Palm Springs, California. At age 21, Jon was one of the youngest general contractors in that state. “There were two mats of rebar—big ones—120 feet right up against form boards. The conditions were miserable. As I watched my crew struggle, I remember thinking, ‘there has to be an easier way to do this.’”
The patented klip applicator tool runs on an air system as low as 65 psi.
If there was an easier way, no one had found it. Fastening rebar with wire ties—the preferred method for more than a century—had always been a time-consuming process that injured workers, created construction bottlenecks, and produced unstable and inconsistent connections. Generation after generation of inventors had tried to replace the outdated methods but none of the solutions caught on. Jon had tried them all. “The automated wire tie gun saved a little time but didn’t address worker injury or form stability,” says Jon. “In addition, the device was temperamental and expensive. Another company came out with a plastic clip that broke easily, had to be applied by hand and was easily pushed out of place during concrete pours.”
None of the new inventions seemed capable of withstanding the demands of real life construction, nor did they address any of the most pressing issues contractors faced. “I needed a solution that would help my crews to make consistent connections faster without the injuries,” Jon recalls.
With ingenuity and effort, the Kodi Klip was born.
Fast. Safe. Simple.
Jon sums it up this way: “Using wire when your competition is using the Kodi Klip™ System is like having your carpenters use hammers while competitors use nail guns. It’s like hiring five guys to break concrete with sledgehammers when your competitors are hiring one guy with an air compressor and jack hammer who can finish the job in 2 hours. It puts you at a distinct disadvantage.”
PIPELINE HIGH CLEARANCE ARCH
Pro-Tec Equipment, a leading producer of trench shoring and shielding equipment introduces its line of lightweight Pipeline High Clearance Arches. Designed with pipeline crews and crews with smaller excavators in mind, the Pro-Tec Equipment lightweight Pipeline Arches provide exceptional vertical pipe clearance, while keeping the overall weight of the trench shield system to a minimum.
There are two different styles of the Pipeline High Clearance Arches to choose from; the first is designed to work with the Pro-Tec Equipment Pal-3 steel walled trench shields. These steel walled trench shields are 3-inches thick and offer an excellent depth rating, while maintaining an overall reasonable total trench shield weight, enabling them to work with smaller excavators. When paired with the Pipeline High Clearance Arches, the 8-foot-tall Pal-3 trench shields provide 72 inches of vertical pipe clearance and still allow for the use of a smaller excavator (11+ metric ton machine).
Able to provide underground contractors with a safe and secure work area,
without sacrificing project production.
The other style for the Pipeline High Clearance Arch is designed to work with both of our Aluminum trench shield systems; the ATS Series, a static Aluminum Trench Shield, and the MOD Series, a modular aluminum trench shield system utilizing 2-foot-tall panels that stack upon each other to build the desired system. When paired with the Aluminum High Clearance Arch, these two systems (the ATS Series and the MOD Series) provide up to 72 inches of vertical pipe clearance, while still allowing for crews to use lightweight excavators (under 10 metric tons) to move the system.
Both styles of the Pipeline High Clearance Arch offer a variety of bolt-on extensions that can provide up to 12 feet of inside working clearance (from sidewall of trench shield to sidewall of trench shield), ensuring that crews have enough working room complete the project.
PRO-BRACE HYDRAULIC FRAME SYSTEM
The Pro-Brace Hydraulic Frame System from Pro-Tec Equipment is the only large sheeting and bracing system 100 percent designed and built in the U.S. The system consists of enclosed hydraulic rams and static extensions, which can be stacked and staged on top of each other during initial installation to help speed up installation time.

Thunder Creek Equipment
DEF Made Easy
Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is not like other fuels and fluids. It is easily contaminated and freezes at 12 degrees F (-10 degrees C). This can create some challenges for those responsible for maintaining off-road machinery.
The Risks of Contamination
New high horsepower diesel engines are equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems to meet the EPA’s Tier 4F emissions standards. The process involves injecting DEF into diesel engine exhaust, producing a chemical reaction to reduce the levels of nitrogen oxide. In order for this to occur effectively, it is imperative that the DEF is as pure as when it arrived from your bulk supplier.
DEF is easily contaminated. A system using contaminated DEF will consume more of the fluid and be less effective at lowering emissions from the exhaust. Contamination poses further risk to your operation. It begins to collect on the catalyst and, over time, this can cause the SCR system to malfunction. The engine will shut down, leaving your team idle on the jobsite. It may damage your machinery too, and a manufacturer could opt to void the warranty if it’s tied back to contaminated DEF.
How to Prevent Contamination
Preventing contamination takes a three-step approach:
- Use a container made specifically for handling DEF. DEF can be contaminated when it comes into direct contact with trace amounts of many common metals. Make sure that all containers and pumping systems are made with only approved materials, like stainless steel and certain plastics, as outlined in the ISO 22241 standard.
- Maintain a clean, closed path for fluid transfer. It’s not only important that containers and pumping systems are manufactured with the appropriate materials, it’s also imperative that they are rinsed and sealed properly and then remain closed to protect the purity of the fluid.
- Keep your workspace clean. Dirt and debris near the DEF fill port can also lead to contamination.
Thunder Creek Equipment has developed a variety of solutions for delivering DEF to off-road machinery. Each is built in accordance with the ISO standard, using the approved materials and rinsed and sealed properly.
Each is equipped with Thunder Creek’s patent-pending two-in-one DEF pumping system. It draws fluid into the trailer from your bulk DEF supply, transport it to the jobsite and dispense into off-road machinery. All of this is accomplished in a closed path, to ensure the purity of the fluid is maintained.
DEF and Freezing
DEF freezes at 12 degrees F (-10 degrees C). Freezing doesn’t compromise the integrity of the fluid. As long as it warmed at temperatures not exceeding 86 degrees F (30 degrees C), it can be used as soon as it’s thawed. The concern with freezing is that DEF expands by approximately 7 percent when frozen. Its simple physics then, that frozen DEF could cause a fully-filled, closed container to burst.
Heating options are available on all Thunder Creek solutions, safeguarding your equipment in colder climates.

Builders and Contractors Trust (BCT) is a sponsor of tax-advantaged Supplemental Unemployment Benefits (SUB), which help our members comply with prevailing wage laws in the most favorable manner. We help make it possible for prevailing wage work to be more profitable for you and rewarding for your workers.
A Bona Fide Fringe Benefit for Prevailing Wage Jobs
THE PREVAILING WAGE PREDICAMENT
When bidding on government construction contracts which fall under the Davis-Bacon Act, you must comply with the stated prevailing wage determination. This means that when your employees’ compensation package falls short of the stated prevailing wages and fringe benefits of laborers employed on similar projects in the area, you need to make up the difference. While this is only fair to your employees, making it up in cash wages eats into your profit.
BCT DELIVERS A WIN-WIN SOLUTION
BCT allows you to take the difference between the stated prevailing wages/fringe benefits and your employees’ total compensation package and pay it to a supplemental unemployment benefit plan (SUB) instead of in additional hourly pay. Your employees’ benefits are invested into an interest bearing money market account and treated as a fringe benefit. Employees are eligible to use their benefits during periods of unemployment, and these benefits do not usually impact their rights to receive state unemployment benefits.
The result is two-fold…
As a bona fide fringe benefit the payment is designed to minimize extra labor burden and taxes.
Your hourly employees continue to get paid when they are not employed, or during periods of interrupted work.
BCT understands the business of government contracting and importance of providing a robust unemployment plan and construction benefit package for the laborers who work so hard on prevailing wage jobs. ■

Combination Helical Cast Transisions
Hubbell Power Systems (HPS) is the world’s leading helical anchoring manufacturer for products used in the civil construction, deep foundation, electric utility, oil/gas, railroad, and renewable energy markets.
The CHANCE® Helical Cast Transition adapts a Square Shaft (SS) helical lead section to a Round Shaft (RS) extension. This combination transition is used mainly in compression applications in areas where soft/loose soils are located above hard/dense soils. The Type RS material less susceptible to buckling, provides greater lateral capacity, and greater moment capacity than Type SS material. The SS lead will allow better penetration on the helices into hard/dense material than RS. SS also reduces the occurrence of “spin-out” (loss of thrust of helices).
- Tapered design allows for smoother transition
- Reduced installing time (no tool change)
- Transition matches torque and compression capacity of respective shafts
- Standard hardware with SS extensions
- Faster lead time and availability of SS
- Meet project specifications with RS & SS
- Spin-Out prevention
Contact your local CHANCE Distributor to learn more about the CHANCE Helical Cast Transition and how it can save you time and money on your next project. ■

Dump Truck Bed Safety Device System
Each year, serious injuries and fatalities occur when unsecured, or improperly secured, dump beds fall while workers are performing truck maintenance. WorkSafe USA, Inc. is proud to present the patented Dump-Lok dump truck and dump trailer safety support device.
Dump-Lok has been independently tested by the Structures and Materials Testing Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to support a massive 50,000 lb (pairs). Dump-Lok is an engineering breakthrough in workplace safety. The patented Dump-Lok steel braces lock your truck’s dump bed in the raised position, preventing it from falling in cases of system failure or operator error. Plus, Dump-Lok safely holds dump boxes at angles higher than most manufacturer body props, giving workers safe access to more areas underneath the dump bed.
OSHA has issued citations to employers for failing to provide lockout procedures while employees were working under the dump body of dump trucks. OSHA recognizes the hazard of unsecured dump beds, and has recommended using an alternative “truck bed brace bracket.” (OSHA SHIB 09-18-2006)
Overall Height – 21 in.
Overall Width – 5.25 in.
Overall Length – 12.75 in.
Weight – 37.5 lbs.
Maximum Capacity (Pairs) – 50,000 lbs.
The Dump-Lok steel braces are sold exclusively in pairs and are strictly intended to be used as a pair.
Dump-Lok can be used universally on any brand of dump box. All Dump-Lok products are equipped with high-grade, high tensile steel safety chains to further ensure safe repairs.
Dump-Lok model # DL105 steel braces fit up to a 4.4375-inch flange—the standard dump truck flange is 3.5 inches. Dump-Lok is designed with easy to grip handles, making each steel brace easy to carry and easy to install between the truck frame and dump box.
Dump-Lok model # DL106 steel braces fit up to a 6-inch flange. Both Dump-Lok models may be fitted with the optional Flat Tops for use with offset frame beds and trailers. ■
The Dump-Lok safety support device is protected under U.S. Patent # 6905174.

Mobile Barriers MBT-1
Highly Mobile, Integrated Protection for Short Term Work Zones
Called the “perfect tool” for various types of road, bridge, and tunnel work, the award winning Mobile Barriers MBT-1 is receiving increasing accolades for improving worker safety and efficiency, while also helping to improve the safety and mobility of passing traffic in and around temporary work zones. With 5-foot-high walls and integrated power, lighting, signage, and TMA, the barrier can be driven to site with no special setup. The barrier’s storage areas and surface decks can be used to carry tools, equipment, materials, and supplies to and from the jobsite. 30-foot cranes and scissor lifts are two of the newer options which can be added to assist crews.
The MBT-1 has proven particularly efficient for various types of work where protection has not traditionally been practical and where setup/breakdown has sometimes taken longer than the work itself. In some contexts, crews are doing in one night what had otherwise taken three to five.
In the DC area, crews have cut the time for certain types of ongoing work by 66 percent, with better response times and productivity. In Colorado, crews have replaced 42 sticks of guardrail in the time it normally takes to do 6 to 8 (one night). On Staten Island, they replaced bridge rail in half the anticipated time. In each case, the barrier is simply driven to site, and from site to site, as needed.
These and other projects such as chip seal, pothole repairs, slab replacement, ITS installations, and maintenance, as well as bridge and tunnel work (bridge joint, bridge deck, tunnel maintenance and repairs), often involve discrete work areas and multiple locations in a given day or night. For such work, the barrier is particularly useful … and what has been called “cheap insurance.”
The barrier has stopped a direct rear impact without damage (only the TMA needed be replaced). On two occasions, the MBT-1 has turned and safely redirected semi trucks with only nominal damage (pictures on the MBT-1 website). ■

Industry Leader in Concrete Vibrating Products & Technology
The patented Oztec RubberHead®, originally developed to protect epoxy coated rebar displayed other significant advantages. The RubberHead was designed with large openings which allow wet concrete to cool the inner shell while also acting as suction cups keeping the concrete in contact with the entire length of the vibrator head. The RubberHead generates uniform vibrations from its entire length eliminating voids and producing a better cosmetic finish. The product is available in eight sizes including one designed for slabs.
The Oztec BP-50a gas powered backpack has evolved into one of the most rugged and reliable units on the market. Equipped with a dependable Honda engine and coupled to our “speed-up” transmission, vibrator heads develop 12,000 vpm and never drop below 10,000 vpm even in the heaviest low slump concrete loads. Another feature of the BP-50a is a patented and totally enclosed rotary throttle which prevents wet cement from clogging the mechanism. The rotary throttle has been specifically designed and engineered to eliminate the operator’s variable setting of the engine speed. This feature will ensure that the unit will consistently produce the proper vibrations per minute resulting in optimum concrete consolidation. A clog-preventing kill switch is also conveniently located on the same handle.
Another revolutionary product and concept is the Oztec RebarShaker®. The RebarShaker turns the entire length of rebar into a vibrator and consolidates concrete in both walls and columns better than any other method while ensuring a void free result. The RebarShaker simply slipped over the top of the rebar, vibrates and consolidates grout in 5 to 7 seconds, eliminating mess and substantially cutting work time and cleanup. ■
Traditionally, anyone performing material handling jobs has been required to purchase several purpose-built attachments to handle the many types of materials encountered. Managing pallets and hardscape materials requires a set of pallet forks. Handling brush and other vegetation debris requires a brush grapple. Large hay bales require specialized attachments as well. Large boulders, cut stone blocks, and other objects like metal cylinders present a particular challenge due their curved and/or irregular surfaces.
If you must purchase just two or more of these attachments to handle the large variety of material handling jobs, you can easily spend more than $7,000 on average on the required equipment. What if you could purchase just one attachment to perform all of these material handling jobs? Say hello to the new Bradco Quik Pik™ Multi-Purpose Grapple for Skid Steer Loaders. This unique, patented, and versatile attachment is the multi-tool of material handling. The Quik Pik™ is the only attachment versatile enough to manage brush, logs, hay bales, rocks, pipe/culverts, as well as standard pallet jobs. The base unit with its patented dual hydraulic boom and curved tines allow safe handling of materials such as hay bales, metal cylinders, boulders, culverts, etc. Additional stability is provided because the boom also features articulated curved tines that wrap around and against irregular-shaped objects and loads.
Combine the base unit with the optional fork tines and/or brush rake and you have the material handling capability of multiple attachments such as pallet forks, brush grapples, bale spikes, manure forks, and log grapples all in one multi-purpose attachment that provides the most efficient, cost-effective, and productive solution for farmers, ranchers, construction contractors, landscapers, land managers, and anyone with material handling challenges. There is no other attachment of this kind anywhere.

Poseidon Barge introduced the P10, a 10’ tall Portable Sectional Barge at the ConExpo. The P10 barge provides the mobility of a sectional barge with the strength and size of a deck barge. The P10 barge comes in two sizes, 44’ x 11’ x 10’ tall units and 22’ x 11’ x 10’ units. Two sizes allow for multiple configurations with offsetting the seams for additional platform strength and versatility. The P10 44’ barge will float 68 tons deadweight at 6’ draft.
Like all of the barges fabricated by Poseidon, the P10 boasts a 30,000 lb per square foot point load capacity deck using a patented roll form deck material. Each barge also includes a deck hatch and a single pick lifting shackle in the top center. The interior is coated with a vegetable oil base bio-float material to guard against interior corrosion; the exterior is coated with a patented Baril marine grade paint, along with countersunk zinc anodes to protect against electrolysis.
Additional strength in the barge is derived by adding more side and corner bracing to assist with controlling denting caused by the push knees on the tugboats and other crafts hitting the sides and corners of the barges.
Poseidon Barge offers regional sales support to assist with project planning and implementation. Poseidon has distribution locations throughout the U.S. Additionally, Poseidon’s sales and engineering staff can evaluate barge configurations and barge loads to assure adequate buoyancy for your equipment.
Poseidon Barge started fabricating Poseidon Sectional Barges back in 1998. Bridge contractors expressed a need for additional barges in the industry. The Poseidon Barge brand was started and since that time, we have fabricated 3’2” high lightweight barges, 4’ high, 5’ high, 7’ high, and now 10’ high barges. In addition to portable sectional barges, Poseidon also offers spud winches, wood mats, and pusher units.

In about 1984, its first portable unit was built, which was possibly the first such unit in the world. In the late 1980’s, URC’s production moved more toward the portable recycling market.
In 1990, URC recognized the need for a large infeed opening, portable grinder to replace the troublesome hammermills called tub grinders.
Since about 2000, URC has been developing and marketing the H.A.W.G. (Hypocyclonic Action Waste Grinder) models. This new design surprised everyone with its ability for its size and cost and is now firmly established in the market place.
We can honestly say that the R-MAG MODELS ARE NEW … TOUGH … AND BETTER.
URC has now turned its attention to its larger machines. The R-MAG MODELS are its most powerful, productive, and efficient grinders yet. ■
