In March, Ring Power delivered two Cat 725C articulated trucks and two hydraulic excavators — a 349FL and a 336EL — to customer Herve Cody. These machines are currently in use on the largest river restoration project in the world!

The Kissimmee River Restoration (KRR) will be done in four construction phases and will restore flow and function to the beautiful, meandering river that became stagnant and lifeless after a government-authorized “channelization” project started in 1960 turned it into a 56-mile-long canal. South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) scientists are already finding that the flora and fauna that had disappeared are making a comeback and report that scientific data indicate that the restoration is meeting or exceeding their expectations.
