Batch Plant Takes Loader After Demo

The Tandy Group operates throughout Central Queensland and comprises Tandy Concrete operations in Mackay, Marian, Rockhampton and Yeppoon, along with its raw material division Mackay Sand and Gravel Sales, Dolomite Distributions, which mines and manufactures dolomite products, plus a transport division.

Mitchell Flor, Tandy Group?s general manager, said that since taking delivery of the new WA380-6 in early October, it had performed to expectations.

?It?s a well-presented machine, it operates very well, and our operators are very pleased with it,? he said.

?We opted for this machine after Ray Vella (Komatsu Australia?s North Queensland sales manager for construction and utility equipment) invited us to Komatsu?s Boots-On during the year.

?Similar loaders were there, we got to understand the machine a bit better. At the end of the day, it?s a well-specced machine, plus Komatsu is putting a really big effort into our after sales service.

?We weighed up all those things, and decided it represented good value for money, including the support Komatsu is offering,? said Mitchell Flor.

?The machine has only 250 hours and is operating nicely. The appropriate service and support people from Komatsu came out and introduced themselves, so we now have the contacts if we ever need to discuss any particular item or issue.

?It has been a very good experience,? he said.?
