Monster Jam Rallies Rely on Ring Power Rentals

February 27, 2014 at 11:26 AMRing Power

Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa recently hosted Monster Jam rallies and each time Ring Power’s Cat Rental Store and Heavy Equipment personnel helped make it happen.

On Jan. 18 the first show rolled into Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium. It took more than 30 pieces of Ring Power’s rental equipment — excavators, dozers, loaders, multi terrain loaders, telescopic forklifts, light towers, rollers, water trucks and even a generator — to prepare the track for the big event and ensure the show went off without a hitch.

After the show all of the equipment was transported to Orlando to prepare the Citrus Bowl for the Monster Jam rally Jan. 25. The show was a huge hit but there was no time to celebrate. The equipment needed to go back to Raymond James in Tampa to prepare for a third Monster Jam rally Feb. 1.

Three weeks later it was time to do it all over again — this time at Everbank Field in Jacksonville.

Ring Power's Cat® Rental Store offers daily, weekly and monthly rental of all types of contractor's equipment, including construction, earthmoving, paving, utility and material handling equipment - from aerial platform lifts, crane trucks, air compressors, sweepers, and light towers to bulldozers, skid steers and backhoe loaders and more.

Job Well Done: Kudos to CRS Field Service Technician Jesse Judd

October 10, 2013 at 8:20 AMRing Power

Cat Rental Store Field Service Technician Jesse Judd helped one customer identify and fix a small problem before it became a big one. To learn more about Jesse’s commitment to providing the best service, read the letter below from James Kummer, Polk County Parks Construction Manager.

FROM:             James Kummer

TO:                 Matt Burroughs

SUBJECT:         Kudos for Troubleshooting

Gentlemen,
 
Our new 299 compact loader developed a problem of automatic braking during operation. Jessie Judd investigated the problem this morning [Sept. 9] and nailed it. Diagnostics did not reveal problem so he assimilated running a pattern to surface malfunction. He determined it was electrical by watching panel’s reaction while in running mode. He then performed wiring trace and found that one cable that tees off of battery terminal was loose enough to break contact during operations. This may sound simple now that it has been discovered but could have led to an ongoing chronic problem that very well could have caused more damage to unit because it was not an evident problem. It was Jessie Judd’s expertise and dedicated diligence to pursue and eradicate problem that impressed me.  He possesses outstanding customer service skills as well. Please take the time to recognize and commend him for a job well done.

Sharks, Racing and Monster Trucks

February 25, 2013 at 10:12 AMRing Power

The past several days have been an exciting adventure for Ring Power. Friday, Ring Power joined OCEARCH in downtown Jacksonville where they held a press conference detailing the Caterpillar-sponsored research Ocearch will be completing during next several weeks as they attempt to catch and tag great white sharks off the coast of Jacksonville. On hand Friday was Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown, the OCEARCH crew, Caterpillar representatives and college students from around the region. Cat recently announced a multi-year partnership with OCEARCH for to fund several research expeditions.

At the same time as the Jacksonville event, Ring Power’s Air Compressor team was at the Daytona International Speedway for Daytona Speedweeks. The Air Compressor team worked closely with NASCAR R&D to develop a new track drying system. The new system, Air Titan, utilizes compressed air to dry the track in record time.

Back in Jacksonville, Ring Power’s Cat Rental Store team and Heavy Equipment Rental team were hard at work setting-up for Monster Jam. The event held at Everbank Field on Saturday attracted thousands of fans.

Ring Power’s Caterpillar Construction Equipment Builds New Jacksonville Jaguars Practice Field

August 16, 2010 at 10:10 AMRing Power

The Cat Rental Store® Provides Earth Moving Equipment for Jaguars’ Practice Field Replacement  Ring Power Cat Bulldozer levels Jaguars' new playing field

When the Jacksonville Jaguars® decided to change their third practice field from astro-turf to real grass, they knew they had a complicated project on their hands. The full-size astro-turf practice field was seldom utilized, while the two other grass fields were taking a beating, even with diligent, daily maintenance. So the decision was made to put in another grass field and lessen the daily wear and tear on the other two fields. That’s when the Jaguars called Laser Turf Leveling, a Ring Power Cat Rental Store customer, for help.

Laser Turf Leveling specializes in professional sports turf from golf greens to football fields. Ring Power’s Cat Rental Store provided equipment every step of the way for this exacting project in downtown Jacksonville. Laser Turf Leveling’s Ron Butler explained, "CAT is always our first choice for rental equipment. They are quality machines and more reliable than anything else. I love the service that comes with renting from Ring Power: they come right out any time I need them and if they can’t fix it quickly enough in the field, they swap it out immediately." It is always Ring Power’s goal to keep our customers up and running.

There is an incredible amount of work put into landscaping a football field. Believe it or not, much of this work occurs under ground level. Percolation and drainage are major concerns, meaning that everything below the grass you see is carefully designed as well. For the Jaguars’ new practice field, Laser Turf Leveling used rock, gravel and sand to create the playing field strata. In all, the project required 2,500 tons of sand and a four inches thick layer of rock equaling 1,000 tons. Their state-of-the-art laser technology allows them to guarantee consistent grading results that adhere to NFL specifications. The new grass that grows on top is a Bermuda variation and is grown in Foley, Alabama. Just one practice field required 70,000 square feet of sod rolls! The final result is a uniform football field leveled within an astounding eighth of an inch.

Jacksonville Jaguars’ Supervisor, Jesse Knapp, was also pleased, "I was amazed by how fast Ring Power’s service response was and how they kept me in the loop with every step. I appreciate that, you know I’ve got a lot of different groups needing equipment and updates, it’s nice to know exactly what’s going on. I really enjoy doing business with Ring Power, they’re a real class act." 

Ring Power enjoys doing business with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Laser Turf Leveling, too! The Jacksonville Jaguars have been hard at work practicing for the 2010-2011 football season on their new field. Ring Power and The Cat Rental Store are proud to help construct the foundation for our very own NFL team’s practice field. As they say, "Practice makes perfect!" Here’s to a winning season - Go Jags!
