Sany-Randalls combination a surefire winner for log handling
Since 2014, Randalls Equipment Company has been the Australian distributor for Sany excavators sold into forestry applications in Australia. Over this period there have been machines sold into various applications such as harvesting bluegum as well as pine.
One application that lends itself particularly well to the Sany carrier has been log load- ing. When fitted with the Australian built Randalls 0.55m2 or 0.80m2 rotating grapple or fixed grapple and a guarding package, the machine is transformed into a high quality, highly productive log loader that can be used in a millyard or in the forest loading trucks.
What makes this combination so appealing is the value for money for a new machine with a full factory backed twoyear/5000 hour warranty provided by Randalls. This means the buyer gets 100% support from Randalls on the complete machine.
When we look a little deeper inside the Sany excavator and the company building them it becomes apparent that this is a truly world class company building world class equipment.
The SY245F runs an Isuzu 6BG 175HP Tier II engine, Kawasaki pumps and valve and Hydash track drives.
Sany itself has been building excavators for more than 20 years and have refined their engineering processes to a point where the quality is equal to that of Japanese built excavators.
Sany currently have the capacity to manufacture as many as 80,000 excavators per year and they are sold in all parts of the world.
The range of Randalls grapples has grown over the years off the back of strong demand from Countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia.
Due to the demands of log loading in these parts of the world so to the design and strength of Randalls grapples has been adapted to enable them to work in some of the toughest conditions in the world.
Today, Randalls remain the sole Australian manufacturer of rotating log grapples. Randalls products are built from start to finish in Melbourne using robotic welding and advanced machine tools in order to produce a top quality Australian product that will withstand anything you can throw at it.
