Ring Power Creates Special Time for Local Dreamers

October 5, 2012 at 11:19 AMRing Power

 

For many children facing life-threatening illnesses, the realities of their battles do not stop once a dream is fulfilled. In the effort to create additional moments of joy and hope for local children before and after their dream, Dreams Come True established Special Times. Yesterday, the Ring Power Corporation, for a third year, hosted dreamers for a Special Time at their corporate headquarters in St. Augustine.

Organized through Dreams Come True’s young professionals group, the Horizon Board, Tavi Sport, 4, Cayden Seng, 7, and Ronald Brown, 7, enjoyed a private tour of the Ring Power facility off World Commerce Parkway.

With representatives from Ring Power Corporation and Dreams Come True, each dreamer was given the opportunity to see and learn about Caterpillar® equipment. Their tour included the chance to practice operating heavy machinery with the help of simulators in Ring Power’s Training Department, visits to the Power Systems Truck Shop and the Heavy Equipment Service Shop, an opportunity to climb on stationary equipment, a backhoe loader demonstration and individual tours of Ring Power’s property in the cab of a 740 Cat® dump truck. Following their tour, each dreamer was given a bag filled with special toys and souvenirs from Ring Power Corporation.

A past Horizon Board member, Heather Lane, works in Ring Power’s marketing department and has helped coordinate the tours for the past three years.

“Dreams Come True is a remarkable local organization. It brings such joy to so many in Northeast Florida, Ring Power included. Our team feels honored to get to spend time with these special children, I think our employees enjoy it more than the kids do! It’s been one of the most rewarding highlights of my position here,” said Lane.

Dreams Come True’s Special Times program provides the dream child and his or her family a time to momentarily forget the realities of life-threatening illnesses.  It may be a special tour, dinner at a favorite restaurant, tickets to local events, a relaxing evening at the movies, a day of beauty, a gift certificate to a store, new release DVDs or even a special holiday or birthday treat.

Since 2010, Ring Power Corporation has hosted 15 dreamers and their families for this Special Time organized by the Horizon Board.

It’s a Cat

September 20, 2012 at 11:54 AMRing Power

When the Caterpillar CT15 Engine was announced in May, it joined the CT11 and CT13 as the third engine option available for the Cat CT660 Vocational Truck.

Offering greater horsepower and torque, the CT15 is the perfect addition to the already impressive offering of available engines.

One of the more frequently asked question by buyers relates to Cat content versus Navistar content.

While it’s true that the CT11, CT13 and CT15 are manufactured for Cat by Navistar, all of the engines are worthy of the Cat name. Cat worked closely with Navistar to ensure all three engine options offer the same performance and reliability that Cat customers have come to expect.

Additionally, all of the engines are backed by the Cat dealer network and Ring Power is here to meet any of your needs.

It’s also worth noting that the CT15 includes many Cat manufactured features. The block is from the C15 with only minor modifications. The Cylinder head casting was modified to accommodate the installation of the common rail fuel system. The Crankshaft and bearings are Cat. The Camshaft is Cat. The Rocker arms and bridges are Cat. The connecting rods are Cat. The Flywheel housing is Cat. The lube oil pump and system is Cat. The Rock cover is Cat. The filters are Cat. The air compressor is Cat.

Weiler MTV Added to Available Ring Power Paving Machines

April 24, 2012 at 4:08 PMRing Power

Another material transfer vehicle by Weiler expands Ring Power’s line of paving equipment.

The new Weiler E2850 Remixing Material Transfer Vehicle (MTV) is more powerful, has more capacity and includes an exclusive paving material remix hopper. The Weiler E2850 is available for sale and for rent at any of our Ring Power north and central Florida locations.

mtv-material transfer vehicle by weiler

Weiler improved upon their current MTV, re-named E1250A, with a simplified clean-out and multiple drop-out floors.

What is a paving material transfer vehicle?
Operating in front of the asphalt paver, material transfer vehicles move paving material from the dump truck, up and into the hopper of the paver, allowing for virtually continuous non-stop paving. Several advantages for paving companies to use MTVs include continual non-stop paving, reducing truck waiting time at the paving site, reduced temperature differentials of paving material and increased rideability.

What are the benefits of using an MTV?
For starters, utilizing an MTV in any asphalt paving project is the ability for increased production by allowing non-stop paving. Material Transfer Vehicles also minimize material segregation by re-blending the asphalt material inside the hopper. Additional benefits of incorporating an MTV on a paving  jobsite are…
– minimize thermal segregation by blending together cold and hot asphalt in the hopper.
– increase ride quality   
– decrease trucking requirement
– maintain consistent paver operation
– ability to tailor paving needs to the job

Interested in renting an MTV?
Renting an MTV could increase your bottom line. By renting, you know your costs upfront with no large capital expenditure upfront. And Ring Power’s asphalt transfer vehicles are ready when you are with no idle time between jobs.

Weiler E2850 Remixing Material Transfer Vehicle
Weiler’s new E2850 Remixing Material Transfer Vehicle is powered by a Cat 300 hp C-9 and has an exclusive material remix hopper with 25 tons of on-board storage. The hydraulically extendable operator’s console allows for better site visibility. Ring Power now offer’s the Weiler E2850 for rent with very competitive rates. Call 904-737-7730 or email for details.

Ring Power® Celebrates 50 Years as Full-Line Caterpillar® Dealer

March 26, 2012 at 10:21 AMRing Power
This month Ring Power Corporation, in St. Augustine, Florida, celebrates 50 years as a full-line dealer of Caterpillar earthmoving, engine and material handling equipment.

Ring Power Corporation proudly announces their 50-year, golden anniversary as a Caterpillar dealership in Florida. In 1961, L.C. Ringhaver, the owner of the world’s largest shrimp boat manufacturer, Diesel Engine Sales, Inc. (DESCO), acquired the Caterpillar engine dealership rights from Jacksonville-based Gibbs Corporation. Originally established in St. Augustine, Fla., Ring Power Corp. was founded to sell and service Cat® marine engines to Northeast Florida’s thriving shrimp trawler industry. 

Following the death of Cat dealer Lobrano Machinery Company’s president and owner, Tom Lobrano, Ring Power Corporation was awarded the dealer territory in Jacksonville, Ocala and Tallahassee, Fla. for the full line of Caterpillar equipment in March of 1962. 

For the next 14 years, L.C. Ringhaver successfully developed the North Florida Caterpillar dealership, Ring Power Corporation, into a customer-focused, service-oriented establishment. Upon L.C. Ringhaver’s death in 1976, his eldest son, Lance Ringhaver, assumed leadership of the company as President and Chairman, a role he would retain until his acquisition of the Central Florida Caterpillar dealership, Rozier Machinery, 10 years later.

In 1986, Caterpillar awarded the Central Florida dealership rights to the Ringhavers. Lance Ringhaver moved to Tampa, Fla. to start a new dealership, Ringhaver Equipment Company, while Randy Ringhaver took leadership of Ring Power Corporation in Jacksonville. For nearly two decades, both Cat dealerships continued to flourish, taking on new business opportunities and products such as an expanded power systems line, rental equipment operations, forklifts, cranes, air compressors and utility equipment, all backed by parts and product support.

In 2004, Ringhaver Equipment Company and Ring Power Corporation officially merged into one consolidated company with Randy Ringhaver as Chairman and President of the new Ring Power Corporation. The combined Cat dealership territory now consists of 44 counties throughout North and Central Florida.

Ring Power Corporation, the North and Central Florida Caterpillar dealer, is headquartered in St. Augustine, Florida. Ring Power is comprised of eight divisions and has 50 years of experience servicing and supporting Caterpillar and allied equipment.
