Colorado Public Works Journal, Spring-Summer 2020

8 Colorado Public Works Journal GMCO Corp. New Exclusive Distributor of Maxwell Products and Marathon Equipment In July 2020 GMCO Corporation became the exclusive distributor of Maxwell Products and distributor of Marathon Equipment in Colorado. Identifying a need for more options, GMCO has introduced a wide variety of crack seal and mastic products that are ready for pickup at a moment’s notice. GMCO understands that asphalt maintenance professionals need more options than are currently available and a wider variety of those options, as well as the equipment needed to apply products. For asphalt repair professionals, Cities, or HOA’s that need quick access to advanced asphalt repair products and equipment at a very competitive price. Maxwell Products set up faster, are zero landfill packaged, and per- form in a wide range of scenarios. Unlike other crack seal and mastic products, GMCO can offer PolySkin packaging, which allows users to re- duce cardboard waste and improve efficiencies. “In a market that has his- torically offered very limited options, we are excited to introduce new and easy access to a variety of options, innovative products, and equipment use programs. We can support road maintenance in the winter months and now we can support them in the summer months.” GMCO President Jeremy Henderson told us. “GMCO is proud to provide our clients with Maxwell's line of crack and joint sealants. Prevent further damage to your roads and paved surfaces with a flexible, durable, and cost-effective solu- tion, all without giving up on quality. These products will withstand even the toughest conditions, from your everyday parking lots to high-usage highways. Their outstanding elas- ticity properties means these so- lutions are built to last, allowing you to save money on your road maintenance and keep it looking good for years to come.” EQUIPMENT Works News FREE Virtual training from Next Gen begun in July with it’s very first virtual demo via Zoom.

NEXTGEN EQUIPMENT TRAINING Buyers Products Grows SnowDogg Snow Plow Line June 2020 – Leader in manufacturing all types of equipment for the work truck industry, Buyers Products is expanding its truck plow line-up for the 2020/2021 season. The SnowDogg XPII is Buyers' next generation expanding wing plow, which extends from an 8-foot to 10-foot wide scoop-position plow (see below). “This plow allows you to tackle serious jobs with efficient and powerful equipment,” says Scott Moorman, Snow and Ice Product Manager at Buyers. “The design team worked closely with production to launch a new, extremely reliable plow at an industry-leading value. The XPII can push out its flared wings to clear a true 10 feet while remaining in a full scoop position. Each wing can be operated separately for optimal windrowing and snow consolidation.” The plow features Buyers’ standard 304 stainless steel blade and optional Illuminator heated LED lights. Buyers builds the entire line of SnowDogg plows at their Northeast Ohio headquarters with 1,000,000 square feet of modern, state-of-the-art manufacturing space.
