Dongwha’s new Volvo L220H and L50H, pic­tured fac­ing off at the Mataura plant in South­land, re­place an L90F Volvo that had been on site for about four years. With ever-chang­ing roles on site it was deemed that two ma­chines with pre-de­ter­mined roles would best fit fu­ture plans. Pro­cure­ment Man­ager, Dean Cochrane, con­sid­ered sev­eral brands with Volvo’s proven log han­ders, power, per­for­mance and com­fort pre­ferred. The log grab and bucket were man­u­fac­tured by En­sign. The L50H is the first H-model in NZ with a Tier 4 Fi­nal en­gine, and among its du­ties are to clear the bins should the plant shut down and the prod­uct starts to back up and be­come a fire haz­ard. The ma­chines were sold by Mark Hop­wood, with Brent Mitchell pro­vid­ing driver fa­mil­iari­sa­tion and train­ing.
