“Never get outworked” is more than a slogan for Minnesota-based specialty contractor Veit & Company. It’s a way of life — and the third-generation family-owned company is putting high-tech Cat® equipment solutions to work to make the most of every hour.
That includes GPS excavator technology that’s helping generate production increases of 30-50 percent.
“When you have this type of technology, you’re cutting down on your time. You’re cutting down on your safety issues. You don’t have the personnel there in your way,” says Allen Newgard, who operates one of Veit & Company’s GPS excavators. “It’s the most operator-friendly piece of equipment I’ve ever run.”
Fellow GPS excavator operator and engineer Terry Dehkes agrees. “When you get to a certain elevation, you can hit a button, which turns on automatic mode. Hydraulics will control the blade to the grade that’s chosen in the computer,” he says. “You just click the button, put it in gear and go. I think it increases our production big time.”
