Fraco Products Ltd.
St-Mathias-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, Canada

Information for Masonry Contractors

Fraco announced the introduction of its new hydraulic, portable crane, the FRH-4000. With an increased loading capacity of 4,000 lbs. (2,240 kg), this new product is the perfect tool to keep material flowing to workers on Fraco's mast climbing work platforms. Mounted on the frame of the platform, the FRH-4000 still has 180-degree pivot capabilities, which allows safe positioning of material on both sides of the mast. With a traveling speed of 70 ft. (21.3 m.) per minute, it can lift loads up to 330 ft. (100 m.). Instead of having an independent engine, the crane shares the working platform's power pack, using power on-demand. For more information, call (888) 372-2648, or visit www.fraco.com.


Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company
Akron, Ohio

Information for Masonry Contractors

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company introduced the latest addition to its premium Wrangler lineup of tires. Sporting a new tread compound, the enhanced toughness and tread-wear capability of the new Wrangler Pro-grade tires is for contractors, landscapers or any other truck owner who regularly hauls or tows heavy loads. Three-quarter and one-ton pickups generate more torque than full-size, half-ton trucks, and that extra torque can contribute to faster tread wear, especially on vehicles that are frequently loaded or towing. The new Wrangler SilentArmor Pro-grade helps provide a tough tread for those who use their trucks in heavy-duty, high-torque applications — all the while delivering a comfortable and quiet ride. For more information, visit www.goodyearwrangler.com.

Sage Software announced the availability of Sage Master Builder Version 12, with new reporting capabilities via an Executive Dashboard that now gives business owners the ability to quickly check the overall health of their company at a glance, with instant access to information such as cash balance, cash position, job status and change orders. Once an executive identifies something on the dashboard he or she wants to understand and investigate further, the information can quickly be reached by drilling down for more details directly from the dashboard.
