Jim Fox, factory representative of Case, explains proper maintenance procedures for this Case loader. Tim Watters, president of Hoffman Equipment, welcomes and thanks attendees for coming. At the end of the training sessions, attendees were treated to a feast. Attendees admire the Case CX 350B excavator, which is perfectly paired to work with the Case articulated truck. Jim Harkins (R) of LeeBoy/Rosco explains the features of the LeeBoy 1000 tilt hopper paver. The drive-thru equipment show gave local highway departments and paving companies an up-close view of the Rosco asphalt patcher, which allows permanent hot asphalt patches to be placed year-round. Willie Auchmoody, local racing legend and sales representative of Hoffman Equipment, added “MC” to his resume for the day as he kept events and presentations moving along flawlessly. John Bridgeman, factory representative of Gradall, gives a walking tour of the new Gradall model 4100. The Rosco asphalt patcher garnered a lot of attention. Cold patches are expensive and temporary. The ability to make permanent year-round hot asphalt patches is the trend of the future. Ernie (L) and Brian Legg of Bedford, N.Y., are impressed with the high deck or low deck options on this LeeBoy paver. Jim Harkins of LeeBoy gives a presentation on procedures for better paving through proper planning, asphalt placement and compaction.

Hoffman Equipment held its annual drive-thru equipment show and paving seminar March 12 at its facility on Route 9W in Marlboro, N.Y.

James Harkins, LeeBoy factory representative, led the paving seminar. He explained tips and procedures on better paving through proper planning, asphalt placement and compaction.

LeeBoy, Rosco, Case and Gradall representatives were on hand to demonstrate the features available on their companies’ latest equipment lines, which are all carried by Hoffman Equipment.

After the equipment show, Case and LeeBoy representatives led a presentation titled, “Saving Money Through Better Maintenance.” There, attendees learned techniques for better equipment maintenance, which can lead to improved productivity, retained equipment value and reduced repair costs and downtime.
