NORTHERN TERRITORY HOLDING DEPOT CHOOSES JCB TELEHANDLERS
The Coomalie Holding Depot is a live export depot facility supplying cattle to South East Asia. Based in the Northern Territory, the facility is responsible for getting cattle ready for export. The Coomalie Holding Depot purchased a 541-70s telehandler, 4220 Fastrac tractor and 300T compact tractor through their local dealer Forklift Solutions.
According to Hamish Brett, Manager for the Coomalie Holding Depot, the telehandler is used for unloading hay trucks and organising the feed mix.
“I use the Fastrac tractor to pull the feed in mixer wagons and I use the compact track loader to clean the cattle pens,” says Hamish. “The JCB machines are really reliable and have never let us down.”
The JCB 541-70 telehandlers is a highly efficient EcoMax-powered telescopic handler. It sits on a chassis that’s designed for load-bearing and stability. The side-mounted JCB engine combines with JCB axles and transmission to ensure reliable drivetrain performance from well-proven components. For added versatility, high utilization and extra investment value, we offer a broad attachments range. There’s also instant steering selection between three modes for easy operation, single-lever servo controls, a tight turn radius and great maneuverability. Of course, being a JCB telehandler, residuals are strong – as the world’s number 1 telescopic handler brand, our Agri telescopic handlers are always in demand and therefore valuable.
