Mary Valley Timbers is using two reliable SDLG wheel loaders — the LG938L and LG946L – to process high quality timber for wholesale and retail in Australia.
On one of the few remaining working sawmills in the Gympie Region of South East Queensland, Australia, two SDLG wheel loaders – the LG938L and LG946L – are busy transporting hardwood for Mary Valley Timbers, an Australian timber company, as it works to keep up increased demand for forestry products.
“The LG938L and LG946L are value for money with simple mechanics,” said Jason File, partner of Mary Valley Timbers. “With our new mill commissioned, there is a higher demand for our production and these two SDLG wheel loaders have been a great asset to date as they are very reliable.”
With the Australian government expecting growing demand for forestry products and committing $12.5 million for the research and development of the country’s forestry industry, companies like Mary Valley Timbers are relying on robust machinery, like SDLG’s LG938L and LG946L, to ensure smooth operations at their busy sawmill.
On site, Mary Valley Timbers is using the SDLG LG938L and LG946L wheel loaders with log grapples and forks to process and transport timber at their hardwood sawmill.
The 11 tonne-rated LG938L wheel loader is designed for optimum break-out force to improve productivity and efficiency.
The machine’s long wheelbase and high tipping load mean it stays stable – even on rough terrain. The LG938L also features a Cummins 6BTS.9-C130 turbocharged engine, which is perfectly matched to the hydraulic pump for further enhanced performance.
The 13 tonne-rated LG946L is one of Australia’s favourite SDLG loaders for its versatility and performance. Ideal for loading and unloading loose materials, the LG946L is widely used on timber plant applications.
The LG946L’s heavy-duty planetary power-shift transmission is smooth, reliable and incorporates a kick-down function for superior productivity.
Mary Valley Timbers operates two green mills and stocks all hardwood, pine and hardware for wholesale and retail. Mary Valley Timbers purchased both SDLG wheel loaders from CJD Equipment, SDLG’s distributor in Australia.
“CJD has been nothing short of excellent. Being a family owned business ourselves, it was delightful to partner with another family owned company with common values and history,” said File. “We are sure to support each other into the future.
We have received tremendous service from CJD Equipment’s field service technician and part representative. They are always there to help us and that is excellent service.”
