Colorado Springs Unveils ‘Relifed’ 470G Excavator for Frazee Construction Co.

Machine Relife completed for Frazee Construction Co.

On Friday, August 18, Colorado Springs unveiled the remarkable transformation of a 470G excavator, now revitalized and ready for action at Frazee Construction Co. Having clocked an impressive 12,500 operational hours, this machine was ready for rejuvenation. Through an extensive overhaul encompassing the hydraulic system, pumps, motors, cylinders, and an array of pivotal components, the excavator has been restored to peak performance.

Distinguished by a custom paint job that showcases the company colors of Frazee Construction Co., the excavator stands ready to make a striking impression on the job site.

Congratulations to the Colorado Springs team, whose dedication and skillful execution brought about yet another successful Relife project. A special acknowledgment is also extended to Chris Winans, the technician at the heart of this project. His expertise and commitment have played an instrumental role in elevating the excavator to its current state.

The Colorado Springs crew!
