West Wind Building Maintenance
Type of Project: Excavation
West Wind Building Maintenance has been building and renovating large ponds across seven acres of prairie land at Fisherman’s Inn in Elburn, IL, with the help of the Case CX55B Mini Excavator they purchased from McCann Industries.
“Using a thumb on the machine, we were able to place every single boulder we brought in with that machine, and that was awesome,” said owner Steven Ray. “I picked up and placed a boulder the size of a Volkswagen. It was incredible what that machine could do.”
Ray has also used the CX55B to develop roads around a 1,200-acre farm in Tennessee. “We built about eight miles of roadway using the tilt blade and 4-foot ditch bucket. We also built a lot of swales and pitches to route water. There’s nothing we put it through that it couldn’t do.”
“We compared Caterpillar, New Holland, Kubota, and Case. I have to say that out of all the salesmen we talked to, Steve Costello with McCann was the easiest to deal with,” says Ray. “He was really quick with his prices, getting back to us when everyone else took their time—we had to call them back. The excellent customer service before we even purchased a machine went a long way.”
