Tenkate invests in new equipment

Heavy plant operator Tenkate has added an Isuzu FVY 1400 long service unit to aid its growing fleet of earthmoving equipment.

“We’ve had several Isuzus in our service fleet over the years and so it was a simple decision to go for another one,” Trevor Wolff, Tenkate Workshop Manager, said.

The Isuzu FVY 1400 truck was fitted with roll over protection (ROP’s) by QMW and then Bard Engineering fitted a customised tray, tool boxes and an engine-driven screw compressor to operate air and oil pumps.

The Isuzu was also given what is known as ‘full mine spec’, which means that it has comprehensive safety features, including the already mentioned ROP’s, seat belt and hand brake alarms.

We do a lot of mining and civil work and we now have about 180 pieces of plant and equipment,” Trevor said.
“We needed to be able to deliver to the sites where our equipment is working – larger volumes of oil and obviously larger and heavier parts.

“The Isuzu FVY 1400 was an obvious choice. It fitted the bill perfectly and it’s a brand we trust.”

Based in Caloundra, Queensland and established in 1976, Tenkate specialises in the hire of heavy earthmoving equipment to the mining, civil construction and quarrying industries.
 carries out select bulk earthwork projects for the quarry and extractive industries. The company’s inventory includes dozers, dump trucks, excavators, loaders, graders, screeners, soil compacters, water tankers and heavy haulage.
