Last week East Lampeter Township had a demonstration the Stepp Mfg. SMM Tailgate Mounted Asphalt Recycler. With the past winter their area had, the roads were left with many potholes that need attention. The Stepp asphalt recycler offers a very economical long-term pothole repair that utilizes waste asphalt millings and other waste materials. The unit is easily mounted to the tailgate, takes only 10 to 20 minutes to produce hot-mix asphalt patching material, anytime you need it. With the Stepp asphalt recycler road crews can easily patch a pothole with long-term hot-mix asphalt anytime of the year.
Reading Township just took delivery of their new John Deere 5085E with a Tiger Bengal boom mower attachment. They put the unit right to use as you can see in the video. Zack Markle their Stephenson Sales Rep. says the Tiger Bengal was perfectly suited for their roadside and guardrail mowing needs, and also takes care of brush and tree trimming.

When Servidone Inc. and Anthony Construction Corp. was charged with overhauling an overpass and entrance ramp to Route 84 in Middletown, New York, the joint venture chose a Manitowoc 11000-1 crawler crane and a Grove RT880E rough-terrain crane to complete the project.
Due to the area’s large population and traffic demands, the joint venture needed to complete the job quickly. The combination of Grove and Manitowoc cranes was ideal, as it enabled a fast setup on the job site, as well as maneuverability on the rugged terrain.
The 80 USt capacity of the RT880E, which offers one of the strongest load charts in its class, enabled the companies to move in and set up for lifts without the need for additional counterweight. Taking advantage of the crane’s 128 ft boom, they performed a variety of tasks, including moving the highway’s barrier walls to set up lane structures and construction zones.
The Manitowoc 11000-1, which has a 110 USt capacity and 200 ft lattice boom, was used for driving piles, as well as placing large sheets of structural steel for ground retention so that pile driving could be performed. It also placed large, precast, arched-box culverts.
“We chose the Grove RT880E and the Manitowoc 11000-1 because of the versatility of these two machines,” said Tim Altman, a project engineer. “With so much action going on at all times and the tight time limitations, these two cranes allowed us to complete the operations in a timely, efficient manner.”
Owning Grove and Manitowoc cranes since the 1970s. They also own a Grove RT522 and an RT760, among others in its fleet. The company purchased these cranes from Stephenson Equipment, from which it has also bought many cranes in the past.
“Stephenson has provided excellent service and support over the years,” said Mark Servidone, president of A. Servidone, Inc. “Its service department has also been reliable, quickly attending to any troubleshooting or repair issues we’ve had, keeping downtime to a minimum.”
Stephenson Equipment, Inc. has expanded its territory for Manitowoc’s National Crane products to include western Pennsylvania. The National Crane line offers powerful truck mounted hydraulic cranes with long reach for precise work in tight spaces.
“Extending our footprint from Philadelphia to Ohio will help us to better serve the natural gas, construction and power industries,” says Dennis Heller, President and CEO of Stephenson Equipment. “Carrying the full range of Manitowoc products at all Pennsylvania locations will allow us to expand our presence with factory trained technicians, a larger parts inventory statewide and a wider area for on-site service.”
National Crane boom trucks feature lift capacities ranging from 8 to 40 tons. There are 11 models of stand-up control cranes with maximum reach from 56’ to 167’. National Crane also offers 7 models of swing seat cranes with maximum vertical reach from 161’ to 183’.
All five of Stephenson's full service Pennsylvania locations now represent National Crane
