American Safety Vest (ASV) is now offering a new series of bright orange vinyl roll-up signs for roadside use. The heavyweight, 15-ounce mesh signs are available from the American Safety Vest website (http://www.americansafetyvest.com) All of the signs are fluorescent. They can be either 36 or 48 inches square, fitting most standard stands for roll-up signs. They can carry standard or custom legends, including: Men Working, Flagger Ahead, Road Work Ahead, Road Closed Ahead, Left Lane Closed Ahead, and Right lane Closed Ahead.
The Kenco Barrier Lift can be used on any concrete median barriers, sound walls, curbing and piling, and also works well for aligning barriers that have already been placed. The barrier lift is ready for operation by using a lifting sling such as the Kenco RigMAX attached to any type or model of machine with lifting capabilities. Elastomer pads provide superior performance even in wet weather. All models are available with optional self-aligning guides. The guides extend down from one set of the pads to allow the lifter to align itself with the barrier wall whenever the lifter is lowered into position. This optional feature can also be purchased separately to attach to earlier models of the Kenco barrier lift. Lifting capacities are available from 1,500 to 30,000 pounds.
Liquid asphalt for wet or dry conditions
Tri-Products LLC has introduced duraPATCH, a specially-designed liquid asphalt form-patch material. The unique asphalt formula’s coating and adhesion properties allow for application in wet or dry conditions. The asphalt formulation has been tested to meet ASTM Standards to maintain the qualities needed for optimal performance. The duraPATCH has been formulated to provide workability during cold winter months, and to withstand the stress and strain of traffic abuse.

Finn Corporation introduces its TRU-Mulch line, consisting of six mulches specially designed to meet the demands of various erosion control and hydroseeding projects. The wood fibers used throughout the line originate from virgin poplar and pine wood chips from forests of the eastern United States. All products in the line undergo an advanced “double refining” process that uses high-pressure steam to create fiber from wood chips. A non-toxic green dye is also added to the fibers to increase visibility during application and to enhance aesthetic appeal.
The TRU-Wood product in the line provides an effective solution for basic erosion control and hydroseeding needs. The mulch is consistent in fiber size and texture to ensure maximum performance. It can be used on slopes up to 30 feet long with a horizontal length to vertical rise ratio of 3:1 or less.
JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corp. company, has new and improved features on its JLG E300 series boom lift models. Through improved hydraulic efficiencies, the E300 provides more than 20 percent more duty cycles, which means an operator can drive 6.6 miles and complete 175 lift cycles on a single charge. The new 305 amp-hour batteries provide an 18-percent improvement in recharging time and deliver a lower replacement cost for equipment owners. Other E300 product improvements include the following: improved break-over clearance, smoother swing function, and a new multi-digital indicator that displays key information including: battery life, machine hours and fault codes.
AlturnaMats Turn-a-Racks, used for storage and transport, are stronger than before. The Turn-a-Rack has been restructured using round steel instead of the square. This enables the rack to be lighter in weight yet more durable in strength. The racks are 30 percent lighter, which saves in freight costs. The racks are less apt to bend with the round steel and also with closed ends instead of the open ended square racks. The racks are part of the MatPak (complete package) or may be purchased separately to go along with the AlturnaMats ground protection mats.
