Hard Hat Show 2015

Team JohnnyBall attended the Hard Hat Show in Syracuse, NY April 1-2 to share how this new product is changing the future of many job sites. One lucky individual even won the very first signed JohnnyBall giveaway at the show!  A great turnout for JohnnyBall’s first public show appearance. JohnnyBall was featured in the April Issue of Hard Hat News bringing more attention to this fascinating piece of equipment:



HH-current 1“Dirtworks Products, a Michigan-based manufacturer, is set to introduce the new JohnnyBall in Booth 138 at the Hard Hat Expo in Syracuse on April 1 and 2, 2015. The JohnnyBall is a revolutionary 3D measuring system for determining level and slope. Unlike any other tool in the industry, JohnnyBall allows operators to check level and slope from the seat of their cab. Previously, operators had to rely on GPS or lasers. Operators also had to spend extra time getting in and out of their machines, or rely on additional workers to ensure an accurate measurement. A key benefit of JohnnyBall is its portability. Featuring an ingenious base cup system, operators can take JohnnyBall from one job site to the next, or from machine to machine. It can be easily mated to dozers, graders, skid steers-any brand, any size. And, because JohnnyBall can handle extreme conditions, and doesn’t rely on GPS or electricity, it’s never down. To ensure the highest quality, JohnnyBall went through three prototype stages before the final product was released having endured rigorous lab testing for durability. In 2014, extensive field-testing was conducted at multiple job sites with operators from Team Elmer’s, a wellknoHH-current 10wn Northern Michigan-based excavating firm. The results were clear, JohnnyBall saved time, reduced the need for additional manpower, and increased efficiency. On multiple job sites, including highway ditch and slope work, Team Elmer’s operators saved up to 2-3 hours a day, eliminated grade rod staff, and had to set fewer stakes. One operator concluded, “JohnnyBall worked pretty slick. I was able to eliminate one rod guy.” Based on extensive field-testing, Dirtworks projects that the tool can realistically pay for itself within weeks or maybe even the first job. JohnnyBall is available through U.S. and international distributors including, Lasco Laser and additional product information is available at www.johnnyball.com. Made and assembled in the U.S., its suggested retail price is $995.00 with one base cup included. Additional base cups are priced at three for $149.00.
