Crane Techs Take the Field at New Marlins Stadium in Miami–April 2011

April 21, 2011 at 3:18 PMRing Power

The Major League Baseball Florida Marlins’ opening game held April 1 marks the beginning of their final season at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. And just outside Little Havana in downtown Miami, approximately 800 construction workers are busy manitowoc crane miamiconstructing Miami Ballpark, the Marlin’s new home. Recently, two of Ring Power Crane’s service technicians had a rare opportunity to join the construction crews at the renowned jobsite.

Steel erection specialists L.P.R. Construction Co., whose project history includes Coors Field, Memphis Arena and Miami Heat Stadium, was contracted to work the steel. The Loveland, Colo.-based company was using a Manitowoc 18000 to install the retractable roof on the new baseball stadium when the crane’s radio-controlled load cell unit malfunctioned, and L.P.R. called Ring Power Crane in Pompano to assist.

Ring Power Crane technician, Raul Urena, reported to the stadium jobsite to troubleshoot the problem and took the load cell back to the facility for inspection and repair. At the time, the crane was also due for routine 1000-hour service, so Crane FS Tech II Mauricio Brizuela returned to the site with Urena two days later. The crane technicians spent the next two days installing the load cell, changing the oils and filters, and inspecting the engine, drives, hydraulics and hoist assemblies.

Miami Ballpark will be the sixth Major League Baseball stadium to have a retractable roof, and the Ring Power Crane service technicians are proud to have played an important part in its construction.

Ring Power Crane is a full-service crane dealer offering new and used cranes for purchase, lease or rent from America’s leading crane manufacturers—Grove Cranes, National Crane boom trucks, Manitowoc crawler cranes, Broderson, Manitex, Tadano, and now Badger and Little Giant—to contractors and crane businesses throughout the Southeastern U.S. Exporting cranes is handled through our International Sales Team in miami ballpakrk marlins stadiumMiami and serves customers in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Track-type Tractor Rebuild Saves Brevard County Money–April 2011

April 20, 2011 at 1:03 PMRing Power
Brevard County saved many with a major rebuild of their landfill machines.

Daily operating conditions at Brevard County Landfill are extremely harsh. Sharp fragments, corrosive materials and sticky debris work their way into a machine’s components, accelerating wear and tear. Brevard County’s Solid Waste Division recetrack-type tractor after reuildntly rebuilt two of their worn fleet machines, a Caterpillar® D7R track-type tractor and a Caterpillar M316 wheeled excavator, at a fraction of the cost of buying new.

Justin William’s, Palm Bay Heavy Equipment PSSR, persistence convinced Brevard County officials that a Ring Power rebuild would help get their money’s worth out of their Cat machines, and his timing couldn’t have been better. Accustomed to replacing equipment every five years, Brevard County had not considered a rebuild since 1999, when the landfill’s 826C landfill compactor was rebuilt. Once officials started comparing current equipment pricing with Ring Power’s rebuild options, County officials saw the advantage: the powertrain rebuilds would save more than $415,000 when compared to the cost of replacing the two machines.

The D7R was transported to Tampa’s Major Component Rebuild Center (MCRC) in early December 2010. Component specialists rebuilt the powertrain—engine, transmission, final drives, drive axles, differentials, hydraulic cylinders, pumps and motors—inspecting, testing and replacing as needed. Several weeks later, the M316 was brought in to Palm Bay’s service shop. Both rebuilds were completed within the scheduled 30 days, but the M316 was not delivered to Brevard County until March, after some additional work was completed.

Brevard County solid waste officials are very pleased with the “good as new” quality of the rebuilds—right down to the paint jobs! Congratulations to Ring Power’s Heavy Equipment service and product support personnel in Palm Bay and Tampa who made the rebuilds happen!

When it comes to overall productivity and operating cost, a Cat® machine is the best equipment investment you can make. When most competitive models reach the end of their life cycle, replacement may be the only solution. But Cat equipment has a sustainable design that allows the machine to be remanufactured by reusing many of the original parts, reducing waste and delivering a cost-effective alternative to replacing with new equipment.

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.
