With the addition of a Roadtec RX-700 half-lane milling machine, B. Jackson Construction has greatly increased the cold milling services we can now perform and offer to our clients. The Roadtec RX-700 runs a Caterpillar C18 755hp engine. Our machine is a three-track unit with a 5’8” turning radius. It is equipped with a 6’7” width cutter drum which allows for a 14” maximum cut depth as opposed to the 12” max depth on many other competitive machines. We feel this configuration offers us the most versatility possible to do jobs both large and small.
“By adding this machine to our fleet, we will be able to do any surface street milling projects out there. Part of what makes [B. Jackson] so successful is that we look for unique services and innovative construction approaches we can offer to our customers and ones that will also fit in with the overall scope of work we like to self-perform. That’s why we got into saw cutting and bought a Vac Truck – we saw it as a great opportunity for own work and for work we can sub out with other contractors. We’ve really been looking at expanding our milling operations in our roadway division to be able to better self-perform more of our own work for a while now. It also seems to us that other contractors may also want to see a new player, but one they already know and trust, get into this business. We really believe that timing is just right for us to enter this market. I’m very excited about this opportunity. ” said Bart Jackson, President, B. Jackson Construction.
B. Jackson has hired a new project manager, Trent Webb, who has over 15-years milling experience to run this new endeavor. Webb will also oversee our existing existing rumble strip and saw cutting operations and provide a “one-stop shop” for customers needing to get this type of work done and who are also looking to deal with a single contractor versus subbing the same work out to several different contractors. We are confident we can do any milling, rumble strip, and saw cutting job that you have and provide you with the best value in the industry and the most control over your workflow schedule.
