Good Morning

Delivery day for Bond Contracts LW300K at the new dairy factory site at McNab. Yes I had to look it up as well, but it’s just north of Gore. This one is fitted a quick hitch to use both a GP bucket and pallet forks.

We now have new stock of the latest Cummins QSB3.9 powered LW180K loaders. These feature much smoother gear selection and are available at $73,000 + GST ex Penrose.

They also have an upgrade to the latest VDO integrated dash.

Another shipment of electric XE80N scissor lifts has also arrived. This is the most popular sized scissor lift at 6m platform height / 8m working height. They are available at $15,900 + GST ex Penrose

A couple of Mantall scissors working on a coolstore extension near Riwaka. A diesel XD100RT and an electric XE120W

A few older XCMG tarmac rollers working on the worlds tallest bridge, some 565m above the valley floor.

A 12 tonne Palazzani PT1102 seen here working in Western Australia.

An XGC800 crawler crane creating a new height record with an 120 meter installation of a 2.2MW wind turbine in Anhui

Inner Mongolia this time a QAY500 working in -30C, again on wind turbine installation. I think most New Zealand operators would wait for a better day.
Finally, a price reduction to start the year. The XE60ED Mini scissor is now available ex stock at $9,850 + GST. This is the only scissor that you can drive at height priced at under $10k in New Zealand. Ideal for your warehouse or workshop with a 6m working height.
