Good Morning

Thanks to all those that stopped by at our site at the Fieldays. A near record turnout of 130,000 attendees this year.

Thanks also to Base Civil for the loan of their LW180K. We had run out of stock of this popular size but more are arriving next month.

We had a lot of interest in the GR2405 grader at the show but many asked for details of a smaller model. We can now offer the GR1605 which is 12.5 tonne operating weight with a 12ft blade. Powered by a Cummins QSB5.9 developing 170hp these will be priced at $178,000 + GST

I was back at the factory last week checking final details on our first two fully electric trucks. They will be shipped this week to arrive in time for the EV World exhibition, August 9th to 11th.

A large order of mining equipment for Australia was also being readied for shipment, including this 300 tonne excavator.

A line up of 40 tonne ADT’s ready to ship.

A couple more electric forklifts ready for delivery to Waste Management in Christchurch.

Our first water cart, this one from Sinotruk, is ready to leave the factory. Based on a RHD 8×4 chassis with an epoxy lined 20,000l tank this one has front and rear discharge nozzles. It also a small cannon on the rear platform.

One of XCMG’s Hanvan trucks competing in a rally in the Talikaman desert in Western China. The soft going is really hard on the drive axles

The latest LW900K 30 tonne wheel loader just delivered to a Nickle mine in New Caledonia. This size has a 5mcapacity bucket and a Cummins QSM11 engine.

Another skills competition at the factory. This time moving the nozzle of the 75m concrete pump through a zigzag pattern at near maximum reach
