Business SituationLocated at the southernmost end of the Alaskan Highway, Homer is positioned on a hillside that ranges from sea level up to 1,400 feet. Coast Range is faced with a variety of challenges on the job including drainage issues, working in tight situations and transporting equipment on barges and ferries. Coast Range needed a flexible tool that would increase their productivity and give them an advantage over the competitors.
SolutionWhen Coast Range added PowerTilt to their Hitachi excavator, they increased productivity by 30 percent. They now finish their jobs in 1 to 2 days. Since PowerTilt allows Coast Range to easily work in tight spaces with surgical precision, they were able to eliminate the small dozer from the fleet and no longer bring specialty equipment to the jobsite. PowerTilt also increased the quality of their finished work by artistically cutting slopes and swales.
