Envirocon’s Equipment Group Keeps the Company Running

03-18-08Owning and maintaining a large, mobile fleet of heavy equipment and specialized attachments requires a dedicated and experienced Equipment Department capable of keeping things running. Comprised of 19 employees, Envirocon’s equipment group includes office personnel, shop mechanics, and traveling staff with the ability to keep the fleet operational both at home and on jobsites throughout North America.

The fully modernized shop complex, located at Envirocon’s Missoula, MT headquarters, consists of four large shop bays with drive-through ability for some of our largest pieces of construction equipment. Each 35’ x 40’ bay comes equipped with 22’ x 20’ roll-up doors, pneumatic plumbing, and pneumatic used oil evacuation containers. Four overhead bridge cranes reside in the bays capable of lifting between 5 and 20 tons. Heated concrete wash racks are available with two washing units, and the shop is fully heated in-house with two recycled oil burners fed by used oil coming from heavy equipment. Lastly, a three-acre lay down yard is available behind the main office building for equipment and attachments storage.

These fully functional shop bays provide Envirocon’s mechanics the capability to perform all manufacturer recommended maintenance in intervals from 250 to 4000 hours on all of our owned and rented equipment, but that is not all they do.

Along with scheduled maintenance, our mechanics are skilled metal fabricators proficient at welding carbon, stainless steel, and aluminum. They are equipped with line boring capabilities of up to six-inches, a 150-ton stationary press, Piranha metal shears, and other heavy equipment tooling.

List of completed fabrication projects include custom construction of six eco excavator buckets for machines ranging in weight from 40,000 to 135,000 pounds; remanufacturing of excavator and loading buckets from one-half to eight yards; dozer face lining; and complete rebuilding of demolition attachments such as shears, pulverizers, and processors.

Envirocon’s sister company, Modern Machinery, is one of the nation’s largest Komatsu dealerships, and Envirocon  maintains rental and purchasing relationships throughout North America to more efficiently and cost-effectively serve our clients,  even at very remote locations. Our experienced equipment staff, skilled and mobile mechanics, and fully modernized shop complex combine to keep our projects and our company running with minimum or no down-time.
