Subject: HEAVY EQUIPMMENT SANDBLASTING & REPAINTING
The City owns several pieces of heavy equipment which are 25+ years old and should be replaced. However due to the climate of the economy we do not have the funds for these major purchases. In light of this we are proposing that several of our main pieces of equipment be sandblasted and repainted in an effort to extend their useful life.
We have contacted two local and one Mat Su Valley vendors that provide this service. One local vendor, Homer Boat Yard, indicated that they are too busy with boat work. The quotes from the two others are as follows.
Active Coatings LLC Northern Industrial Coatings
Homer, AK Wasilla, AK
• 1980 Cat 120G Motor Grader $8,268.75 $5,500.00 + $4,000 trucking
• 1986 Cat 140G Motor Grader $9,527.85 $5,500.00 + $4,000 trucking
• 1987 Cat 950B Front End Loader $7,793.75 $3,600.00 + $4,000 trucking
• Trucking n/a $12,000.00
Total Quote $25,590.35 $26,600.00
As this is an unbudgeted item and due to the quoted costs, we recommend award to Active Coatings LLC, Homer, Alaska in the amount of $7,793.75 for sandblasting and repainting of the 1987 Cat 950B Loader.
We will request additional funding to complete the other two pieces of equipment in 2012.
