Earthmoving equipment supplier supports mobile crushing, screening contractor in time of need


Pro Crush, a Queensland-based mobile crushing and screening business, has continued its operations during COVID-19 thanks to support from suppliers such as RDO Equipment.

Based on the Gold Coast, Pro Crush has specialised in mobile crushing and screening for the construction and mining industries for 13 years.

Pro Crush owner Richard Hill said industry support for his business has been vital during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“There’s still a sense of uncertainty, which isn’t a great feeling for a business owner, but longer term we’re looking okay, and hopefully there won’t be too much of a major impact to the business,” he said. “Suppliers like RDO Equipment make me feel secure because I know they have my back during this time and will be there on the other side of this for us, too.”

Hill founded Pro Crush in 2007 and has grown its machine capacity to a point where it now provides full contracting with more than 50 mobile crushers and screens.

He recently bought a John Deere 844L wheel loader from RDO to add to the fleet.

“I liked the sound of how RDO were setting up their business here and how they treat their customers,” Hill said. “I can see a lot of effort has been put into establishing them in the Australian market, so I was keen to give them a go and see for myself.

“The size of the machine was exactly what I was looking for, as we’ll be using it for stockpiling crushed material, loading dump trucks and other general duties, so it needs to be tough, productive and durable.

“One thing the operators and I have noticed that really stands out is the cab. The drivers are always comfortable, thanks to simple things like the extra legroom, air conditioning and a heated seat. The visibility is great as well.”

Hill said RDO Equipment has lived up to its reputation of supplying the upmost support for its customers.

“The team at RDO have been great to deal with,” he said. “They’ve always been upfront and honest with any questions I’ve had, and really helpful with machine delivery and handover. And I know they’re there now for any tech or service questions I may have. I’ve noticed they go the extra step for their customers, which I really appreciate.” RDO Equipment is the distributor for John Deere earthmoving plant and equipment in all states and territories except Western Australia.
