New Zealand Logger - - New Iron -

Rob Phillips, of Phillips Log­ging, has taken de­liv­ery of a new Su­mit­omo SH300-5TLFS for fleet­ing and load­ing du­ties in his ground base crew work­ing south of Whangarei. With its fac­tory forestry guard­ing pack­age, pur­pose-built cab, straight­ened log­ging boom and large un­der­car­riage, the new Sumi ticks all the boxes for Rob, and the Dux­son GX181 grap­ple sup­plied by Don­ald­son Me­chan­i­cal was sim­ply the ic­ing on the cake. The op­er­a­tor of the Su­mit­omo, Dan Hill, is over the moon with his new ma­chine and reck­ons it’s the best loader he’s ever driven. Proudly pic­tured with the im­pres­sive Sumi are the team from Phillips Log­ging
