                      in augusT 2008 Barro Group took delivery of a new
                      Hitachi AH500D Articulated Dump Truck for use at its
                      Mountain View Quarry, located 70 kilometres west of
                      Melbourne. The quarry excavates basalt rock, which
                      is transported to the on-site crusher for production of
                      raw material for the company’s concrete plants.
                      The company re-opened the quarry in 2005, after it
                      had been closed for sixteen years.

                      The decision to invest in a new dump truck was
                      necessary in order to keep production capability of
                      the site to 18 hours. The company decided to test
                      Hitachi’s claims of higher productivity and lower
                      fuel consumption by purchasing Hitachi’s 50 tonne
                      articulated dump truck, the AH500D. While Barro
                      Group is always looking to improve efficiency through
                      lower costs and increased production, their true
                      intention was to directly compare the performance
                      of the Hitachi ADT against the rigid truck already on      In the 1,000 hours the truck has been working             so comfortable that the operators prefer to stay in the    Above:

weight distribution, a low centre of gravity, high ground clearance
and a long wheelbase. Combined, this results in unsurpassed
balance and agility.

An impressive tipping load and rated operating capacities enable these
machines to precisely place pallets and master an ever-increasing
variety of material handling and job specific tasks. A massive
range of compatible attachment products are available
including multi-purpose buckets, rollers, brooms,
augers, hammers, forks and much, much more.

Like their bigger 300-Series Skid Steer siblings,
the new 313 and 315 deliver best-in class stability,
visibility, and serviceability. Lightweight and agile,
yet surprisingly powerful, these
highly capable compacts are the
perfect size for confined areas,
and are easy to transport
between jobsites.

     during The BlacK saTurday bushfires the
     Australian Defence force played a major role in
     the assistance effort by delivering food parcels,
     improving fire breaks and containment lines, and
     deploying tents and facilities to accommodate those
     made homeless by the blaze.

     The Joint Task Force created for the effort included
     an Engineer Support Group that was in control of
     seven of the Army’s John Deere machines. These
     custom John Deeres – comprising of 850J John
     Deere Bulldozers and 672D John Deere Graders –
     were used in conjunction with two teams of chainsaw
     operators to establish containment lines and clear
     damaged and fallen trees from 35 kilometres of
     roads within Mount Disappointment National Park.

     The Victorian branch Support Team took a pro-active
     approach during the disaster, contacting the regional
     ADF staff to inform them of emergency contact
     numbers for parts and service, to ensure the relief
     effort wasn’t stalled by any machine downtime.
     Positive feedback was received from the Defence
     Executive for the excellent conduct of the Support
     Team during this difficult time.
