Anderson Equipment Co. supports heavy equipment program

Pennsylvania College of Technology and Anderson Equipment Co. have entered into an entrustment allowing for students in the heavy construction equipment technology program to hone their skills on a construction bulldozer.

The five-month entrustment, which runs through April 2022, enables students in the heavy construction equipment technology: technician emphasis major to access a new 2022 Komatsu D51PX-24 crawler dozer – valued at $245,190 – for instructional purposes.

Students will do undercarriage measurements; emission training; and electronic, hydraulic and HVAC diagnosis on the dozer.

“Anderson Equipment has shown its commitment to the kind of education offered by Penn College in our heavy construction equipment programs,” said Elizabeth A. Biddle, director of corporate relations. “We thank Anderson Equipment for its continued partnership and for its support of our students, who will learn additional skills on Komatsu equipment.”
