Bulmor Lancer lands at Carvers

Published:  05 August, 2014

Bulmor Lancer has delivered a new set of sideloaders to serve the timber production aspect of Carvers Building Supplies.

The smart red and black vehicles have a 5-tonne capacity and 1200mm platform width. The variations include DQ50/12/45 short-chassis, high-platform machines, giving high utilisation and excellent productivity over the working environment and offering 45m lifting height.

In addition, two of the same trucks have been fitted with two-way catalytic converters for superior engine emissions in their particular location. The DQn50/12/62TV x1 short-chassis low-platform version provides maximum storage utilisation with a Triplex mast and excellent maneuverability. All of the fleet are also equipped with an advanced resin-filled pneumatic tyre solution to minimise punctures via Air Seal Products.

Bryan Purslow, operations director of Carver’s, is positive about the new investment. “I took a long careful look at the options on the market and a visit to Palmer Timber convinced me of Bulmor’s benefits. They are a quality, robust design, totally fit for purpose.

“We allowed our drivers to help assess the design and the decision was not just about price. The features ensure that we meet our demanding health and safety requirements, including operator comfort, reversing cameras and distinctive signage to enforce a 3m pedestrian zone. I was also very impressed by the professional performance of their managing director and sales manager, who always matched their promises and timetable.

“We have gone for a long-term maintenance contract, which also ensures that the fleet is always optimised for best output. This is very much a case of looking to the future and moving ahead.”
