The newest addition to the Loadex hire fleet, the 48-tonne Kobelco SK500LC-9 excavator could save contractors up to $100 a day in fuel, according to Loadex Hire manager Clayton Van Geest.
Loadex Hire has branches in Perth and Adelaide and has owned more than 100 Kobelco excavators over the past 20 years. Loadex Hire in WA purchased two new SK500LC-9 models late last year, and Clayton says the fuel efficiency of the new machines is delivering big savings to customers.
“With these new excavators you get the same or better production as the older model but you’re using a third less fuel. That’s a lot when you’re talking about $200-$300 in fuel per day,” he says. “As fuel gets more expensive, fuel economy is now a significant factor in contracting costs.
