The Utah League of Cities and Towns (ULCT) recently held its annual Road School in St. George, Utah in April and this year’s program included a presentation from John Hargett of Doosan Portable Power.
Organized more than 100 years ago, ULCT serves 245 incorporated municipalities throughout Utah, representing municipal government interests at the state and federal levels and providing information, training and technical assistance to local officials on municipal issues.
Hargett’s presentation included the history of Doosan and information about the company with a focus primarily on the P185 air compressor models — the P185WJD and P185WYM.
Participation in the program was made possible through Doosan Portable Power local dealer in Salt Lake City and major sponsor for the Road School, Cate Equipment Company.
This year’s Road School had more than 300 registered attendees with a focus on reaching all types of state and local government associations in Utah. The school includes trade shows, presentations and workshops by dealers and manufacturers.
The 185 cfm units were the focus of Hargett’s presentation as they are the most acceptable sized machine for municipalities, cities and public works within Utah.
“Doosan Portable Power has enhanced its products to better meet the needs of municipalities, and I wanted attendees to get a better understanding of our full product line mix, specifically the 185 cfm compressors,” Hargett said. “With such a utilized product in the Utah market, we felt it was important to highlight the many benefits of the P185WJD and P185WYM for attendees who have used one or potentially will in the future.”
The P185 includes improved serviceability, up to 26 percent better fuel economy, 33 percent larger tool box, 50 percent noise level reduction compared to previous models, improved fluid piping and the most optional accessories of any compressor manufacturer, according to the company
