Merry Christmas from Granite and Happy Retirement to Keith!

Wishing Everyone a Merry Christmas!

Christmas is a very special time of year as we direct our focus to the first coming of Jesus and look forward to his second coming.  Out of that joy we celebrate with friends & family.  Granite Industries is a family owned company and the employees enjoy celebrating life together as family.  Yesterday was our annual Christmas party and it was a fantastic time of food and fellowship.  Jackets were handed among other gifts.

Gathering of great people and good food!


Incredibly visible and incredibly warm!


Announcing Keith Short’s Retirement!


Keith Short has been faithfully managing the accounting for Granite since we opened in 1997.  One of the first employees into the Granite family he is very dear to all that work here.

He worked before the opening bell and after the closing bell to ensure all paperwork was done accurately and every detail was double checked.  His last day is in January and we are sad to see him go, but happy for him as he transitions on to a new phase in life.  He received the proper gifts of an Ohio State rocking chair and a Citizen watch.   All the best Keith!IMG_0390

Feed More Horses, Faster

The Overland Electric Platform Combo Cart is the perfect setup for feeding and watering.  The custom 24″ W x 22.5″ L platform is perfect for supplements, feed bags, water, hay or other feeding necessities.  The wheelbarrow hopper can be loaded with any variety of feed or hay as well.  Electric power takes the hard work out of feeding and replaces it with a fun and efficient operation.  Current owners rave at the time savings noticed at each feeding.

Mucking Stalls 

Mucking stalls is a required chore but enjoyed by very few.  Spend more time riding and less time cleaning stalls with the 10 cubic foot electric wheelbarrow.  The 750 lb capacity of the wheelbarrow ensures that you will never be able to pile enough poop in the cart to overload it.  Load it up knowing that with a twist of the throttle you will be on your way out to the dump pile.   The spring loaded pin allows for secure traveling and easy dumping.  Simply release the pin when you are ready to offload and the bucket easily pivots forward.  New shavings do not weight much; however, they do take up a considerable amount of space.  The 10 cubic foot wheelbarrow hopper is nearly double that of most standard wheelbarrows.  This allows for maximum volume and fewer loads.

Safer and Easier Operations

The powerful electric drivetrain on the Overland motorized carts adds versatility around the farm.  Capable of moving heavy loads up and down hills, the Overland cart can take the place of a tractor for many tasks.  This saves the time of getting out a tractor, hooking up a trailer and manually getting up and down from it.  The easy-to-use powered cart can be handled by a wide range of ages.  Driving a tractor can be complicated and dangerous to an inexperienced user, but an Overland Cart can be safely operated with minimal training.  Built in safety features such as automatic shutoff, overload protection, AutoBrake and HillSense work together to create a seamless operating experience.

Made in the USA

Overland understands the importance of USA made products and components.  All Overland Carts are engineered, manufactured, and assembled in the Overland Ohio Plant.  The chassis is made by hand from structural steel and then powder coated in house.  The buckets are from top USA wheelbarrow manufacturer, Brentwood Industries.  The electric motor is sourced from a company in nearby Pennsylvania.

Endless Uses

We have spoken with many of our current customers, the continual feedback is they use their Overland Carts for EVERYTHING.  Once the cart lands onsite, it immediately becomes the most popular utility vehicle available.  The robust drive train, huge hopper, and full line of safety features create a desirable combination for any user.

Granite Power Snappy – Featured at the BCA Safety Meeting

Motorized Work Platforms: Safety is Key

The Building Contractors Association (BCA) of Northeast Indiana recently put together a 30-hour training seminar.  The primary focus was OSHA standards for construction safety.   One of the highlights of the safety seminar was the
education on the proper use of scaffolding and mobile scaffolding.  This was done by Granite’s own specialist, Chad Kern.    As technology continues to evolve and increase the efficiency of the job site, standards must be changed as well.  This can be clearly seen in the advancement of motorized work platforms.

The Power Snappy from Granite is the premier electric work platform in the industry.  Now in it’s third generation, it has improved in performance and safety measures.   Developed to conform to the 2:1 safety factor required for motorized lifts, the Power Snappy is compliant with best safety practices.  The standard guardrails surround the user of the motorized platform to provide a safe working environment.  Auto-lock keeps the Power Snappy securely in place when the throttle is not being applied.
