Muggeridge Constructions Purchase New Dieci Telehandler

After many weeks of consideration and weighing up whether to hire or buy – the boys at Muggeridge Constructions decided to purchase a new Dieci Apollo 25.6 Italian built telehandler. A decision that sustains the business’s growth over the next 12 months with projects meeting their long term handling needs when on site.

With approximately 12 months of ongoing projects signed up and ready to go – the weigh up between renting a mobile telehander or a tower crane for each project came to the conclusion it was more economical to buy a compact machine like the Apollo and move it from site to site.

Bruce Muggeridge, has a Dieci jib attachment with him Apollo. The attachment is suitable for the work it needs to do and peace of mind with safety complaint equipment when on jobs.

Dieci – Lencrow

Dieci Australia is pleased to announce the appointment of the Lencrow Group as their distributor of the Dieci range of Telehandlers and attachments in Queensland and Victoria.

Lencrow are an experienced equipment supplier of a range of materials handling products and the inclusion of the Dieci Telehandler is a natural fit to their range.

Ross Grassick, Managing Director of Lencrow Australia says, “We provide the complete solution for materials handling from pallet truck to container movers. However, the “missing link” in our market offering that we could not address was the rough terrain Telehandler. Dieci are a global leader in telehandler design and manufacture and we are very excited about our new Dieci partnership. We will address all the key markets where Dieci focus being construction, mining, agriculture, infrastructure and rail and look forward to extending both our own and Dieci’s presence across these market sectors in Victoria and Queensland”.

“Lencrow proved the ideal partner for Dieci Australia”, says Paul Jenkins, Director Dieci Australia, “Both companies share very similar values of customer focused support and quality across all aspects of the business. In Lencrow, Dieci are confident they will extend their sales and support network across both states. Dieci sales staff in Victoria and Queensland will transition to Lencrow thereby keeping consistency of contact with the customer base.”

Both companies see benefits and synergies with their current service agents, including Dieci’s Authorised Parts and Service Agent (APSA) program, which can only enhance the customer support experience.

Lencrow have offices in Dandenong Victoria and have recently relocated to larger premises at Archerfield in Brisbane.

Forklifts &Telehandlers in Australian Agricultural Applications

With the increase of bulk goods, bale sizes, supply and demand materials handling equipment has become essential to agricultural processes. Traditionally forklifts were used and proved to be inadequate unless they were an all terrain model. Even then the operator was limited to lifting and moving. Inevitably in all industries technology evolves and has been innovated to improve processes, productivity and operator safety. The versatility of the telehandler has come in to its own and is becoming widely used in agricultural applications.

The telehandler has the ability to not only lift a load but to also work with crane jib. The attachments on offer in many ranges of telehandler’s on the market include dirt buckets, grain buckets, rotators, power brooms and that just names a few. The agricultural range of telehandler scan also be fitted with three point linkage and power take-off. This makes the telehandler a truly universal piece of equipment.

Telehandler’s are easily manoeuvrable. Most models include 4 wheel steering and all wheel drive and offer a range of transmissions to suit your application.

On the market today you can purchase or hire telehandler’s with varied lift heights and in different capacities.There are some dealers that include a range of telehandler’s tailored to suit hay and poultry specific productions.

Lencrow Materials Handling has been involved in the supply of off road forklifts and materials handling equipment since the early 1980’s and in that time has seen the popularisation of these units and manufacturer’s develop equipment unique to Australian agricultural industries. In Europe the telehandler is the most commonly used piece of equipment already in agriculture.

Modern telehandler’s come standard with an enclosed cabin, ROPs, FOPs and are fitted with anti tipping equipment as standard. This is upgradable to full crane safety equipment for when a jib is fitted to the unit. There are a number of different manufactures selling this type of equipment and are usually European imports. These versions are the most compact offering the most features.

While the telehandler does have a range of versatile attachments available it should be noted that the unit and attachment must be rated to suit each other. Each unit is sold with a rating chart in the cabin unique to its capabilities and attachment recommendations.

Another important point to note when purchasing a used telehandler in Australia is that there has been a number of “grey import” units sold. A “grey import” is a unit that is produced to be supplied in another country and may be fitted with parts that are not available locally or have non-compliant construction. If you are unsure of this we would recommend that you consult the dealer of the equipment and quote the full model number and serial number for confirmation.

Lencrow Materials Handling is the dealer for a number of all terrain forklifts and telehander’s and offers a specialised off road forklift and telehandler spare parts for most makes and models.
