Per­for­mance and sup­port keys to con­tin­ued suc­cess

Australian Forests and Timber - - Head-Lines -

RANDALLS EQUIP­MENT Com­pany was ap­pointed the sole distrib­u­tor for SP Mask­iner har­vest­ing heads in Aus­tralia in 2012. Since that time the 591 LX G3 de­barker has become renowned for its qual­ity and per­for­mance in blue gum de­bark­ing op­er­a­tions across South­ern Aus­tralia from Al­bany to Or­bost.

Since the first SP 591 LX head was de­liv­ered to G&C Forestry, a to­tal of 50 SP heads have been brought to Aus­tralia.

“It’s al­ways a chal­lenge to con­vince a log­ger to go away from a brand that he has known and trusted for many years but from my ex­pe­ri­ence when they do and they ex­pe­ri­ence the per­for­mance of an SP head and the un­matched cus­tomer sup­port pro­vided by Randalls there is no go­ing back. The num­bers speak for them­selves,” said Davin Frankel of Randalls Equip­ment Co.

The SP591 LX G3 is proof of what hap­pens when man­u­fac­tur­ers lis­ten and col­lab­o­rate with cus­tomers and re­fine a prod­uct to do what it is de­signed to do at the low­est cost and high­est ef­fi­ciency pos­si­ble. Any­where you care to go in the world where Eu­ca­lyp­tus is har­vested and de­barked in the for­est, you will see 591’s dom­i­nat­ing the land­scape.

“The SP 591 LX G3 is great ex­am­ple of how we have man­aged to de­velop prod­ucts specif­i­cally for mar­kets that are both very re­mote and also very dif­fer­ent from what you typ­i­cally would see in Europe.

“The fact that we have not tried to com­pro­mise and de­velop these prod­ucts to suit both Euro­pean and South­ern Hemi­sphere con­di­tions have def­i­nitely been the key to our suc­cess. By al­low­ing our en­gi­neers to travel the world to make them un­der­stand the dif­fer­ence in mar­ket re­quire­ments and con­di­tions has en­abled us to de­sign and build some pretty unique prod­ucts with both brains and brawn,” said An­ders Gan­nerud from SP Mask­iner.

SP Mask­iner de­signed and pre­sented the world’s first ever sin­gle grip har­vester head in back in 1980 and con­tinue to lis­ten to their cus­tomers and de­velop prod­ucts to suit spe­cific re­gions in the world.
