Abstract:

Your unit has old, maintenance-intensive construction equipment in need of replacement. While you appreciate the newer systems you ve received, such as the hydraulic excavator or vibratory roller, equipment such as loaders and water distributors is in such bad shape you wonder if anyone cares about the unit s ability to accomplish its missions. Some of the equipment just went through a service life extension program, but much of it isn t suitable or cost-effective to rebuild. You may be short of equipment because it was so worn that it was coded out. It may be difficult to find repair parts for some of the other equipment, or else the parts are very expensive. The unit may even have had to rent or lease equipment, and spent so much it would have been better off buying the equipment but was told it couldn t. Surely this isn t the way things are supposed to work. Is anyone at the US Army Engineer School planning to help What is going on
