Maximizing the equipment efficiencies of laser and GPS machine control helps drive our performance.

  • Fleet Upgrade

    The S.W. Rodgers Company strives to run the freshest equipment fleet in northern Virginia. After months of equipment backorders a few new pieces are being deployed. Our rigorous maintenance program has helped keep us at the forefront of production capabilities. On the trailer is one of Caterpillar’s newly numbered D4 dozers which has taken the place of the older D6 models. Soon to hit the subgrade is a new Caterpillar 120 motor grader. What project can we do for you this year?
