John Deere Tracked & Wheeled Skid Steers booming in the Australian rental market

19 Mar, 2012

Hitachi Construction Machinery (Australia) Pty Ltd now imports the complete range of John Deere skid steer loaders and compact tracked loaders to fulfil interest being displayed by Equipment and Plant Hire companies.

Tracked and Wheeled Skid Steer Loaders are rented for a variety of earthmoving applications and are often found working at road building and development sites, underground utilities, cleanup and residential construction.

Equipment and Plant Hire companies across Australia are showing strong demand for the popular D-Series loaders due to its superior uptime and availability for hire.

“With longer service intervals, easy to remove covers at the rear of the machine and a tilting cab that can be raised by a single person, maintenance is incredibly simple and fast." states Ian Johnston, National Sales Product Manager for John Deere at Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia. “We know Hire and Plant companies appreciate its uptime and availability because of this."

“Right now, we’re conducting a national demonstration program aimed at Equipment and Plant Hire companies for their input on preferred specifications. We’re keen to hear from the hire industry and would be pleased to bring some machines over for them to try out."

With the full line up available now from Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia, stock will be boosted over the next quarter to shorten national delivery times.
