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.
