As it gears up to celebrate its one-year anniversary in Australia this May, RDO Equipment is excited to bring a new range of John Deere compact machinery to its Australian branches.
According to Mark Kuhn, General Manager of Operations for RDO Equipment, the launch of the G-Series skid steers and compact track loaders and the E-Series mini excavators marks the end of a huge first year for the company, which promises to match its new range with its renowned customer support experience.
“When we launched in Australia in May last year, we set out to make a big mark on the Australian construction and forestry machinery markets. I’m proud to say we’ve achieved a lot in nearly 12 months since the launch, including the employment of over 100 support staff, setup of 12 branches and over 30 service vehicles have hit the road.
“In addition, the consolidation of RDO Equipment, Vanderfield and Vermeer Australia under the RDO Australia Group banner has put us in a great position to deliver this new range to a wider market, who will experience even stronger service and support across the three companies,” Mark says.
G-Series skid steers and compact track loaders are available now, while the E-Series mini excavators should be available by mid-year.
“The G-Series skid steers and compact track loaders are packed with impressive specs and features to increase productivity, plus plenty of power and torque, and strong pushing power and breakout forces,” Mark says. “Whether you’re an owner-operator using machinery across a variety of tradie jobs, or need a multipurpose machine on farm, these machines are versatile enough to be used across many applications.
“The John Deere compact range has a strong history of performance in the US market, so we’re excited to bring these to our Australian customers so they can experience the range for themselves,”
“Most importantly though, the new compact range will be backed by the service, support and strength of the RDO Australia Group. We know that a great machine is only the starting point.
“We have great strength in the ag sector and regional locations with the Vanderfield brand, and with the service and support provided by RDO Equipment and our expert John Deere technicians, customers will experience a full-sized support package across an even bigger range of sectors,” Mark says.
The G-Series skid steer loaders and compact track loaders will be available at RDO Equipment branches in Adelaide, Albury, Brisbane, Darwin, Launceston, Melbourne, Sydney and Townsville, as well as Vanderfield branches across Queensland.
