NESCO Rentals donates equipment to vocational ministry in Haiti

By News, Press Release

Vocational training is an important part of any economy, but in a country still recovering from the 2010 earthquake and with an unemployment rate of nearly 80%, Haiti’s infrastructure is in near perpetual need of renewal.
Necessary skills are lacking – preventing any real progress.

Loving Shepherd Ministries (LSM)–based out of NESCO’s hometown of Bluffton, Indiana—is working to solve that problem by establishing the LSM Vocational Ranch in Les Cayes, Haiti. The infrastructure on this 40-acre reserve is currently being built with the goal of providing vocational training to the once- vulnerable children they serve.  Ultimately these children will grow to be sustainable adults, empowering them to be change-makers in their own communities.

NESCO Rentals® recently donated the shipment and use of an auger to the LSM Vocational Ranch where it is being used to drill holes for trees, install utility hardware and help regulate drainage.

“We’re able to check soil bearing capacities with a special attachment [on the auger] which has given us a way to make foundation construction decisions,” explains Troy Leyse of LSM. “Immediately upon arrival we used it to determine the foundation conditions for a school we’re building.”

The auger and supplies spent three weeks in transit once they left Indiana before reaching their final destination at the vocational ranch. Heavy equipment of this nature is difficult to come by, as it is not locally produced or supplied.

“NESCO Rentals® has allowed us to better utilize our staff to do more meaningful work and get it done faster,” said Shane Shaw, Projector Coordinator for LSM.

NESCO Rentals® presents the Right Track System

By News, Press Release

The weather was unseasonably warm in late March as one of our customers worked to remove wooden utility poles with modern replacements in the hills and valleys of Southern Indiana.

Though the sunshine was welcome, the change in temperatures affected the logistics of moving linemen and equipment to the job sites in rainy and muddy conditions; in this case, 30 miles of near swamp-like surroundings. Utility companies often face unique and challenging circumstances; and track units are in high demand for wet and slippery areas.

This job site was no different.

NESCO Rentals® arrived to implement the Right Track System and its patented design. The Right Tracks System enables the efficient adaptation of wheeled units, providing a suitable alternative to track machines.

In addition to the mud and knee-deep water at the Indiana jobsite, the conditions included steep, slick hills with sharp grades and uneven surfaces along a nearby creek bed. The Right Track System, applied to a Terex commander digger derrick, served BBC Company without issue, earning praise from the linemen at work.

“With a track machine, we’d have to load it up and haul it, but we can take the tracks off and drive it down the road if need be,” said Justin Pontius, our customer’s General Foreman. “After getting to use it, it was very helpful.”

With increased PSI, easy installation and unlimited usage, the Right Track System is available now through NESCO Rentals®. The Right Track System can be put to work throughout the country for transmission and distribution companies, oil and gas, rail, telecommunications and construction.
