Log Loader fea­tures the best of two worlds

Australian Forests and Timber - - LOG LOADERS -

FOR THE past year Vic­to­rian-based Ran­dalls Equip­ment Com­pany has been fit­ting Sany Ex­ca­va­tors with its own man­u­fac­tured Ro­tat­ing Log Grap­ples. [The model pic­tured is the Sany SY235C (23.5 ton) ma­chine with Ran­dalls’ .80IR22 Grap­ple].

“We have found dur­ing that time that the Sany Ex­ca­va­tors from China have been very re­li­able as most mod­ern day ex­ca­va­tors are,” said Ran­dalls Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Peter Ran­dalls. “In fact, half of all the world’s Ex­ca­va­tor sold in one year are work­ing in main­land China to­day.

“Sany is num­ber one in China to­day.

“Our com­pany has been build­ing Ro­tat­ing Log Grap­ples for more than 25 years now, so when the op­por­tu­nity came where we could set up a com­plete Ex­ca­va­tor/ Log Loader we were pleased to work with the Sany fac­tory di­rect on this for the Aus­tralian Mar­ket,” Peter said.

“This has worked very well for us where as we take care of the build-up , grap­ple in­stal­la­tion and af­ter sales war­ranty and ser­vice. It’s a com­plete one stop shop with the new ma­chine,” he said.

“We can also meet the mar­ket with a very com­pet­i­tive cost­ing for the to­tal pack­age.”

The Sany SY235C runs Kawasaki hy­draulics and the Isuzu 6BG1 en­gine which pro­duces 128.5 Kw. The same model is run­ning in Aus­tralia with the SP591LXG2 blue gum har­vest­ing head and the SP761LF pine har­vest­ing head.

Peter ex­plained that all the ma­chines came with Sany Cer­ti­fied op­er­a­tor cab­ins with ROPS and FOPS. “We do the OPS in­house in Mel­bourne and fit ex­tra oil cool­ers for the har­vesters.

“All up we have a very good, hon­est ma­chine at a very rea­son­able price for Aus­tralian log­ging con­trac­tors.”

Ran­dalls Equip­ment Com­pany has been man­u­fac­tur­ing and dis­tribut­ing forestry equip­ment and at­tach­ments since 1968.
