For things like foundations and footers, we will be able to eliminate a grade checker, cutting labor. It will also help with safety because we won’t have a guy exposed to a trench as much,” he said. Confidence in Columbus Equipment Company TSE Manager Mike Fenster is another reason behind Bontrager’s purchase decision. “The technology part was a big hurdle. I’m familiar with GPS but by no means a professional at it. I know I can call Mike and get the answers I need. He’s willing to talk at my level, and I felt comfortable I would get the support I expect from him.” Bontrager also likes that Columbus Equipment Company can access the screen remotely and change a CAD file if needed. “If I’m not onsite, Mike Fenster can do it for me remotely and the production can keep going.” The excavation company—founded in 1972 by Brian’s father, Daniel—has been a Columbus Equipment Company customer since the 1980s and has always received good service, he noted. “My mechanic says the service department is knowledgeable and can always help with problems he can’t handle, like electronics. The parts department is very responsive and knowledgeable.” Bontrager Excavating’s fleet includes about a dozen Komatsu excavators, ranging from a PC120 to a PC300, and four Komatsu dozers, from a D37 to a D65. Bontrager has already decided the next dozer he buys will also be an iMC model. The final iMC Experience event of the year is October 25.
