First Blog!

Welcome all- to the first Totem blog. We’re getting tech savvy around here and thought this is a great way to keep all of our loyal customers updated on hot topics in the Alaska equipment industry. Any feedback or questions on the topics we discuss or suggestions for future topics would be much appreciated!

Mike just returned from his trip to ConExpo in Las Vegas with a fleet of equipment that has everyone at Totem excited for the upcoming construction season. For starters, we are expanding our fleet of Sany Excavators. Mike sealed a deal with Sany in 2013 to become the dealer for Alaska and we put a 135 to work over at Totem Rentals. A solid summer of testing proved the 135 to be a strong, reliable excavator. We had customers raving that the Sany will dig as fast and hard as any unit they have ever sat in. When you consider the fact that Sany excavators come in at roughly 2/3 the cost of the other name brands, we realized what kind of value we had our hands on. With the addition of a larger 215 and a compact 75, we now have a Sany excavator for all of your jobs this summer. Come on in and check one out, we should be seeing the new units arriving before the snow is gone.

Another exciting addition to the Totem lineup this year is Liugong Forklifts. Never doing anything halfway Mike brought in a carload of lifts. We have both 7000# capacity diesel and 5000# propane     fork lifts.  Liugong produces an excellent lift with all of the bells and whistles. Coupled with a strong leasing/rental program we predict you will be seeing Liugongs all over Alaska soon!

Do you have any trenching work coming up this summer? Totem Rentals is proud to offer the Toro Pro-Sneak 360. This workhorse has both a digging chain and a vibratory plow. We picked this trencher based on the proven strength of the Toro product line. Totem’s success with the Dingo compact utility loaders has solidified Toro’s reputation as a leader in compact equipment and we are excited to provide Alaska with their fine products.

Thanks again for stopping by! We will do our best to keep you guys posted with all of the exciting news coming from your favorite Alaskan owned and operated Equipment Company.
