Boyle Excavating of Arrowsmith, IL using an ES5500 Extendable Paw
.....Boyle Excavating was preparing a site for the expansion of a local union hall, where clearing trees in the minimal space was a concern. Boyle decided to try the PWCE Extendable Paw in this task. According to Jarrod Boyle, "It was great for quick and easy tree removal and it was great to not have to move the whole tractor every time I wanted to pick up more dirt."
.....Jarrod Boyle was impressed with the PWCE Extendable Paw and would highly recommend it. "I think that it would be a great asset for anyone in dirt moving and demolition."

.....In working with Algonquin Power Systems, Anderson Equipment needed to come up with a new machine to replace a device that was used to clean grates on a dam. Using a Takeuchi TB070 that Anderson Equipment had in their rental fleet, PWCE specifically designed the Long Front attachment to meet their needs.

In addition to cutting labor costs, it also "improved productivity a whole lot," according to Alex Shue of Anderson Equipment. Alex Shue enthusiastically noted, "They (Paul Wever and Paul Imm) drove over 16 hours to meet with me personally. You don't see service like that anymore."

PWCE Ride Controls

Roading a Loader over rough terrain will cause a fore and aft pitching motion to the vehicle. This is common to all loaders. The pitching motion is reduced when a Bucket Suspension Control is installed. The control provides the lift side lines of the boom cylinders with an accumulator on and off control. This control, when its engaged, allows the hydraulic fluid to press against the accumulator. The boom cylinders now become shock absorbers helping to cushion the up and down motion of the bucket. This stabilizes the entire vehicle.

*Ride Controls also available for wheel loaders and skid steer loaders.
