TCM’s a winner at MacServices
MacServices provides pre-fabricated buildings that are used throughout Australia. Many of the units are utilized in the mining industry’s top sites, including Moranbah, Dysart, Nebo, Coppabella and Middlemount in Queensland and Kambalda in Western Australia.
Employing their new TCM FD160-3 forklift, MacServices is able to move 3 Bed Buildings throughout the workshop with ease.
The TCM Diesel 16tonne capacity forklift was delivered in early November 2008 to MacServices, replacing their original 16tonne Hyster unit. "We're very impressed with the 'fork'. It is surprisingly easy to operate and feels just like a car!” Atillo Distefano, floor manager at the Edinburgh branch said of the TCM forklift.
The 16-tonner arrived at MacServices with factory-fitted air-conditioning to suit their busy schedule of working around the clock during the busy months – which also happens to be the hottest months of the year.
Specifically the forklift is used to pick-up and move the steel frames that are the base for each of the home-units and has had specifically designed slippers to extend the tyne length to enable it to move the frames almost unassisted.
"Overall we couldn't be happier. We're even getting a couple more TCM’s in!" commented Distefano.
TCM large capacity forklifts are Japanese market leaders and are industry renowned for their performance and durability. They are available from 10 to 25 tonnes and are easily adaptable to suit any environment and application.
