The BULMOR Lancer Sideloader success goes from strength to strength and literally in the case of Charcon Construction at its huge nationwide locations.
Charcon has perfected a faster, smarter and safer approach to integrated building by providing innovative offsite manufactured precast products for the key stages of construction saving customers significant time and cost combined with quality and peace of mind. The specfic construction aspects include the precast floors, stairs, landings, access solutions, ground beams and piles, structural frames, barriers and various hydro solutions. The company serves the housing, healthcare, education, industrial and commercial sectors. Charcon delivers the exact solution to the requirements and using the best sourced products at any time.
By the same token, BULMOR Lancer takes pride in providing exactly what the customer wants. And whilst the sideloader model may look like the standard version – in this case the DQ50 / 15 / 40D – the fleet provided to Charcon incorporates numerous customised requests and benefits. The standard specification includes a capacity of 5000kg at 750mm load centres up to full lift height: the latest Perkins water-cooled diesel engine meeting the latest emission regulations: platform width of 1500mm and height of 1030mm and single hydraulic joystick which offers unmatched operator control. Other features to note embrace a heavy duty durbar steel platform; high performance cyclone air filters; made to measure forks; full LED lighting upgrade; fully adjustable air suspension seat with adjustable arm rest for maximum opertator comfort: heavy duty traverse and latchover systems and wear strips and a luxury heavy duty safety themed cabin with roof and window guards; tilt/telescopic steering wheel: complete gauges and warning lights and full size supported sliding door. All of which amounts to a design absolutely ideal for the shape, size and weight nature of the concrete and timber beams at the hub of the business.
Charcon’s General Manager Shaun Brown praises the ongoing BULMOR Lancer ethos including the customised fittings “ This project has taken a while assessing our exact needs and they have been very patient and attentive. We needed certain features such as a special bed width, air suspension seats, air filtration and solid tyres to provide constant operator comfort which translates to constant best performance. The BULMOR Lancer sideloader fleet gives us quick start up,easy to run and maintain and we haven’t lost an hour of running time. It’s a classic situation of fit for purpose”.
