We buy Caterpillar Excavators due to the high break-out force and power-to-weight ratio. All excavators have blades fitted, this increases downward force which when trying to enter virgin or compacted ground is a great advantage. This also generates greater lift and stability when pulling up or lifting. We don't charge any more per hour for machines fitted with blades even though the versatility and efficiently of this machine is greatly advanced.
We selected Hino Trucks for a number of reasons. Hino Trucks have good power-to-weight ratio, this improves turnaround time when carting. Hino Trucks simply have the best turning radius in the market.
When Hino trucks are being used for tipper work, which on most occasions means having to back in or access tight spots, they leave longer bonneted or trucks with longer chassis behind. Hino Trucks weight is low but have the same GCM as other trucks and therefore we can carry higher payloads.
Our equipment is a major part of our business and if a breakdown occurs then it results in a very costly problem to our business. Therefore our equipment is maintained to the highest standards, resulting in minimum downtime. All trucks carry a tool kit and we always have a trade qualified HD Fitter employed full-time.
Our machinery's teeth and edges are replaced more often than the suggested manufacturer's rate. This is because we feel it makes any job easier and faster with sharp teeth. This also causes less stress on the equipment, which in the end benefits our customers greatly.
