In all, more than 1300 students from 83 high schools, technical centers and colleges throughout Florida competed in 188 skills and leadership contests—the largest number of contests and greatest number of schools in the history of the conference!

Last year, as event chairman of the diesel equipment technology competition, Rainer organized the flow of students through the skill stations and assisted with judging, tallying and submitting the final competition results.

Crawler Crane by Manitowoc Available at Ring Power Crane—June 2011

June 6, 2011 at 9:14 AMRing Power
Manitowoc Crawler Crane available at Ring Power Crane

 

Since it was first introduced in 2000, Ring Power refuses to keep Manitowoc’s 999 cranes off our shelves. Why? Because not only does it continue to meet the expectations of our Ring Power Crane custommanitowoc crawler craneers but this lattice boom crawler crane goes above and beyond, literally. With 48" wide cast steel pads, Manitowoc’s very own patented FACT connection to carbody and single-track design, this beast of burden does more than just get the job done. 

Towering over its competition, this crane is strategically designed with drive motors located on each corner of the carbody, rather than the same side, to help with turning while carrying a load. This also allows for better ease of assembly, as it won’t matter what crawler goes on what side. Don’t miss out on Manitowoc’s exclusive independent closed loop system not to mention its main and whip drum’s continuous 29,500 lb. line pull with top to bottom layer. Tired of your crane engine refusing to crank up in the winter months? Well, the 999 offers a manually operated disconnect clutch for cold weather starting. All of this and more: Its crawlers’ tractive effort allows full counter-rotation with a full-rated load, exclusive to Manitowoc.

So don’t settle for a crane that limits your operation, let the Manitowoc 999 Crawler Crane earn you precious time and money as it continues to speak for itself. Now you know why our Ring Power customers can’t keep their hands off this crane for over a decade. Don’t let this load-lifting competitive edge slip through your hands. Come see for yourself why we proudly stand by the 999 lattice boom crawler crane.

This Manitowoc 999 lattice boom crawler crane is available for long term rent. Contact us for crane rental rates.

Headquartered in St. Augustine, Florida, Ring Power Crane is a division of Ring Power Corporation offering crane sales and crane rentals of new and used cranes with locations in Florida and the southeast including, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.

Caterpillar Update on Impact of Crisis in Japan—April 2011

April 6, 2011 at 8:48 AMRing Power
Caterpillar Inc. and Caterpillar Japan Limited actively monitor the developments in Japan

Ring Power Corporation, reports Caterpillar’s ongoing commitment to aid in Japan. Over the last week, Caterpillar Inc. and Caterpillar Japan Limited have actively monitored the on-going developments in Japan following the devastating earthquake and tsunami to report ramifications for Cat and the Caterpillar dealer network.

While continuing to provide support for all employees living and working in Japan, Caterpillar is focusing resources from around the world to determine the full scope and impact on the company’s supply chain. Caterpillar's facilities in Tokyo, Akashi and Sagami were not damaged by the earthquake, and are outside of the current area the Japanese government has declared as a mandatory evacuation zone. To date, both the Sagami and Akashi facilities have continued to operate and produce product, and the disruption to the supply chain in Japan has not stopped production at other Caterpillar facilities around the world. Cat is actively developing alternative sources for components produced by Japanese-based suppliers, should they not be able to fulfill orders. Although Cat’s Japanese interests appear sound, Caterpillar cautions it is possible some facilities may be sporadically impacted throughout Japan’s recovery.

In addition to Caterpillar’s economic research on behalf of suppliers, employees, dealers and customers, Caterpillar Japan Limited has pledged $1 million to support disaster relief through in-kind equipment donations of machinery and generators to Japanese governmental agencies. In America, the Caterpillar Foundation has announced a $1 million grant to the American Red Cross with an additional promise to match up to $500,000 in contributions made by Caterpillar employees, retirees and dealer employees ­to the Red Cross before April 14, 2011.

Ring Power Corporation has more than 45 years of experience selling, renting, servicing and supporting Caterpillar® and allied equipment throughout North and Central Florida.

Forklift Renting Can Be Smart Budgeting—March 2011

March 11, 2011 at 4:18 PMRing Power
material handling equipment rental can be smart budgeting

No matter what size company, you’re bound to encounter items in your warehouse or jobsite that won’t be used on a regular basis. And these items could represent a sizable financial investment. One example is your forklift. Renting a forklift, either short or forklift rentallong-term, may make better economic sense, offer more financial flexibility, and protect your credit in these uncertain times.

Economic Savings
The cost for renting a forklift is typically far less than the cost of buying a forklift outright, particularly when you will just use it for a job here and there. Even if the forklift is for long-term usage, the benefits of a long-term rental may outweigh the costs of a forklift, maintenance and parts. A forklift rental is a fixed cost and is an easily budgetary item.

In addition, even if the actual cost ends up being about the same as buying the item, you will be able to preserve your cash flow. You won’t need to come up with thousands of dollars to purchase the item, but rather just a few hundred for the first day, month, or week of renting it. You can then put your working capital to work for your business, market your product, and grow your income.

In addition, you may be able to deduct the cost of renting items from your business's tax return. This adds even more savings into the equation, as you will lower your tax liability when April 15th comes around. See your tax advisor for details.

Flexibility
Forklift rental provides flexibility for your business as well. As your business grows and changes, its needs will change as well. By leasing these large-ticket items, you can upgrade or downgrade as your business needs change without a huge financial loss.

Whether you need an extra forklift to do inventory, perform a special project or many forklifts to handle extra shipments during a busy season, we offer a comprehensive selection of rental forklifts in a variety of power, capacity and tire arrangements.

Protecting Credit
If you choose to purchase large items for your business, due to your cash flow limits you will likely turn to credit. By renting items instead of buying them, you leave your available credit lines open for other needs. This gives you more confidence that you can get through a slow spell or make smaller purchases when facing a cash flow shortage.

Because of all of these benefits, equipment rental simply makes sense for many businesses. The next time you find your business to be in need of a forklift, consider renting or long-term lease instead of purchasing one. It just might save you some money and increasing your company’s bottom-line.

Ring Power Lift Trucks has over 350 forklifts in its short-term rental fleet to choose from with capacities ranging from 3,000 to 52,000 lbs. Rent a forklift with a configuration that makes you most productive. Rent electric, gasoline, LP-gas or diesel forklifts or rent a specialized material handling forklift, such as quad-mast, truck mounted forklifts, piggyback trucks, flatbed trailers, narrow aisle trucks or order-pickers.

We supply a variety of productive attachments including carpet poles, box clamps, bail clamps, push pulls, single doubles, rotators, fork positioners, and paper roll clamps. We also rent sit-down, stand-on and walk-behind forklifts. Rental forklift rates includes maintenance and transportation of lift trucks to and from your premises.

Ring Power Lift Trucks is the forklift division of Ring Power Corporation, headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. Additional offices service Pompano Beach, Miami, Daytona Beach, Orlando, Tampa, Ocala, Sarasota and Tallahassee.
