How John Deere Helps Carolina Site Logistics Serve Their Community

September 2, 2020

Carolina Site Logistics, a mechanical, residential, and commercial contractor, knows it takes a wide array of machinery to tackle everyday jobs. This is why it has left the door open to potentially add more to its fleet, even though it is already running approximately 40 pieces of equipment at the moment.

Rich Jeffers, vice president of Carolina Site Logistics, notes that the company’s partnership with its John Deere dealer has helped it pull through some difficult challenges.

“We had a large project where we needed more excavators, so we called up Flint [Equipment Company] and they sent us three 350G LC Excavators in one clip, no hesitations,” noted Jeffers. “Last year, I called because a hurricane was coming up north. I needed three more loaders, and they unlocked the dealership gate for us after hours so we could head upstate and do what we do. You really can’t ask for better support.”

But Carolina Site Logistics doesn’t just have an edge on its competitors because of its accessibility to machinery. It’s the company’s fleet of John Deere equipment that puts it over the top.

“The 350Gs are great,” Jeffers explains. “You can run them on 48,000 yards of muck, just the nastiest conditions you’ve ever seen, and they’ll run all day. Plus, the cabs are comfortable and they’ve got solid air conditioners, which is a big thing for us because it gets hot down here. We’ve been hitting 115 degrees for the last three months, so it’s nice to jump into a cool machine and get some real work done.”

Let’s take a look at some of the highlights of the 350G LC Excavators and how they can potentially help you with your tasks.

Highlights of the 350G LC Excavator

This excavator has an EPA Final Tier 4/EU Stage IV engine with cooled exhaust gas recirculation for reducing NOX, as well as a diesel particulate filter and diesel oxidation catalyst. And with ergonomically correct short-throw pilot levers, operators can enjoy smooth, predictable fingertip control straight from the cab. There is also a power boost button on the right-hand control for even more digging power.

Additionally, three productivity modes allow users to pick a digging style that fits their particular job. The side panels of the 350G can also be swung open to make adjustments to the equipment as needed.
