Mike Chenet, president and owner of Construction Crane & Tractor (CC&T), values the longtime relationship between his company and Daisy Construction. In fact, the two companies have been working together for nearly 10 years and have created a wonderful synergy. And now there's a new element to the two companies' relationship — a Wirtgen W 2000.
At ConExpo 2002, CC&T sold a new Wirtgen W 2000 FCS (flexible cutting system) milling machine to Daisy Construction, based in New Castle, DE. Daisy will use the new machine on several upcoming highway projects, including the Interstate 95/Route 22 project in Aberdeen, MD, and a pave and rehab job for the State of Delaware. Daisy Construction also owns two other Wirtgen machines.
The Wirtgen W 2000 FCS offers a broad cutting width and high performance for removing deteriorated asphalt pavements or complete roadway structures down to 13 in. (33 cm) in a single pass. The W 2000 FCS boasts a 565-hp (421.2 kW) Cat diesel engine with front discharge for ease of operation. This model has a 79-in. (200.7 cm) cutting width, with 87-in. (221 cm) cutter width available as an option.
"The W 2000 allows for quick change of drums for different applications," said Chenet. "It's a versatile machine that is great for interstate highway work as well as residential jobs. This machine is a perfect match for Daisy because it will cover all of the company's needs."
Having the right equipment for the job is important, but having a trusted relationship with an equipment distributor is just as important — something CC&T has worked hard to establish with Daisy Construction.
"There's a mutual trust that is built up after working together for this length of time," said Chenet. "Daisy Construction is a progressive company and is well-respected in the industry, and we really appreciate doing business with them."
With Daisy Construction, the appreciation is mutual and the company expects to grow well into the future with the help of Wirtgen machines and CC&T. Leonard Iacono, president of Daisy Construction, said, "The Wirtgen machine is the finest on the market and is great for handling pavement milling and shoulder excavation. What also really helps us out is that CC&T really knows its product. Support from CC&T, especially Mike Chenet, has been very good. The dealer backup and response time has always been excellent and CC&T mechanics are well-trained and are familiar with the machine's specs and capabilities … We have a great relationship with CC&T."
