Permapine has added two new Volvo ma­chines to its round­wood fa­cil­ity at Re­poroa, near Taupo. The first, an L90F wheel loader, is Volvo loader num­ber 12 at the site and it has all the well-known Volvo fea­tures, mak­ing this the per­fect ma­chine for the op­er­a­tion. The new L90F is fit­ted with a set of En­sign log forks. The other ma­chine is the sec­ond Volvo EC140DL that has made its way into the Permapine op­er­a­tion, fol­low­ing the de­liv­ery of the first one a year ago. This EC140DL is equipped with a blade and At­tach2 wide bucket to help with site work and clean up but will also have a fixed En­sign grap­ple to work in the yard sort­ing poles. Dy­lan Maki, who op­er­ates the new ma­chine, is im­pressed with the com­fort­able op­er­a­tion and per­for­mance. Both ma­chines were sold by Ewen Sather­ley, of Tran­sDiesel.
