Cleaner heavy equipment brings hidden costs

Cleaner heavy equipment means a cleaner environment, but it also comes with hidden costs. While the air is cleaner thanks to new emission standards, your wallet might be lighter as well.

According to story in The San Diego Business Journal Online, California construction companies are replacing their older diesel-powered heavy equipment, passing the expense along to consumers with higher prices.

New heavy equipment takes time to build. Companies make due with smaller equipment while they wait for orders on larger pieces.

The cost of the tougher emission standards are expected to drive bids up to 25 to 30 percent.
