Our first loader delivery to Atlas Concrete. The latest spec LW400K will be used at their Kumeu branch.

The small Mantall scissors are selling well. Just by coincidence these five are loaded up for delivery to Palmerston (Otago) and Palmerston North.

We had a visit this month from Mantall’s Executive Director Shirley Li and Sales Manager Gloria Wu. We receive excellent support from Mantall and are looking forward to exciting new models developed for the NZ market.

I was back in China last week taking delivery of another LW500K for a Northland based contractor. This unit is in the standard Landex specification with US built QSB Cummins and ZF transmission.
