Metal Connection, LLC Saves Fuel and Reduces Noise Output with New Bobcat™ 250 EFI on Scoreboard Demolition and Construction in Memphis
To kick off the 2012 season, the Memphis Redbirds — AAA affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals — unveiled a brand new 3,600-square-foot scoreboard in right-center field at AutoZone Park. The new scoreboard, comprised of 36 10-x10-foot panels, is supported by more than 42,110 pounds of new steel and is now the largest video scoreboard in all of minor league baseball.
Chris Cramer, owner of Oshkosh, Wis.-based Metal Connection, LLC, worked on the demolition of the old scoreboard, as well as the steel fabrication and erection of the new structure over a six-week period in early 2012 (subcontracted through Madison, Wis.-based Stubblefield Sign Group). During that time he put the new Bobcat™ 250 EFI (EFI = electronic fuel injection) from Miller Electric Mfg. Co. to work as both a welder (Stick and Flux-Cored processes) and industrial-strength generator (grinders, plasma cutters). The newly redesigned Bobcat 250 EFI provided Cramer with a number of important benefits, including sound reduction, greater fuel savings (which lead to overall cost savings of about $100/week when considering extended run times and refueling trips), and greater generator power output for running tools on site.
