Reduce Emissions on Diesel Rigging and Demolition Machinery

On January 1, 2014, the Tier 4 Final emissions standard set forth by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for off-road diesel engines went into effect.  Manufacturers are now required to produce diesel engines with advanced emissions control technologies, and heavy construction, demolition, and rigging equipment such as cranes and excavators must now meet standards that reduce particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions to near-zero levels. 

The new Tier 4 standard only applies to the manufacture of equipment, but state and local emissions regulations are rapidly changing, and many environmentally-conscious clients demand greener equipment on construction, rigging and demolition projects as well.  R. Baker & Son is in the process of updating our fleet of rigging and demolition equipment through retrofit technology and new purchases.  We fully comply with all rigging and demolition emissions regulations and can meet even the most stringent of our clients’ environmental needs.  At R. Baker & Son, we care about the environment and are firmly committed to reducing our carbon footprint to ensure a better future.
