Gehl Company
West Bend, Wis.

Masonry Magazine

The new Gehl 383Z excavator features zero tail-swing maneuverability, which allows the machine's superstructure to rotate entirely within its tracks. Its small size — weighing 7,826 lbs. with a canopy, and 8,002 lbs. with a cab — and maneuverability make it a perfect fit for congested sites. The 383Z excavator also enhances both operator space and serviceability; the size of the operator's compartment is maximized by mounting the powerful 29 hp (21 kW) Yanmar diesel engine on the side of the machine, and the hydraulic and fuel tanks on the rear of the machine. For more information, call the Gehl literature hotline at (800) 628-0491, or visit www.gehl.com.

Willow Creek Concrete Products
Oakdale, Minn.

Willow Creek's Aqua-Loc paver system can create usable spaces that previously were unsuitable for paving — especially on urban commercial sites subject to new federal Clean Water Act storm water regulations. The Aqua-Loc system permits storm water to drain through voids between the pavers into subsurface detention areas, where it's directed through a series of natural filtration processes before gradually exiting the system. By creating subsurface detaining and filtration areas, the need for space-wasting detention ponds is dramatically reduced or even eliminated. Also, because of their flexible surface, Aqua-Loc permeable pavers tolerate movement from freeze/thaw cycles without damage, making them especially well suited to harsh Northern climates. For more information, call (651) 773-7480, or visit www.willowcreekpavingstones.com.
