That gaping hole in the side of the operator's station caught my eye.

Rod Sutton is editorial director of Construction Equipment magazine. He is in charge of editorial strategy and writes a monthly column for the magazine, The Sutton Report. He has more than 30 years in construction journalism, and has been with Construction Equipment since 2001.

Driving to work, I stopped next to this machine being trailored behind a heavy-duty pickup. It's not an owner-operator, it's a company with its name emblazoned upon the truck.

That gaping hole in the side of the operator's station caught my eye. Then I noticed the dirt and grease, then the snow pack that had been allowed to solidify over night.

Any advice for this company?
