Our harsh East Coast environment is tough on gear and shows no mercy! With Hardox we’ve enjoyed significantly reduced wear on our truck and trailer bodies. Finally a product that withstands the damage of the bigger rocks we cart. We can throw in five tonne rocks with no dents! We cannot endorse Hardox and T&G enough.

Using Hardox in our impactor crushers the wear rate is lower and therefore more cost efficient. This also goes for our buckets, where we achieve very good wear rates from Real Steel’s Hardox EnduroBlade cutting edges. In truck bodies, Hardox is very resilient — we can cut down the thickness of the steel without losing strength. This brings the tare weight down. And it doesn’t dent and bend as much as regular steel.

We had hired an aluminium trench shield and while it was strong, it was super heavy. We wanted the strength without the weight. The Foxbox is much lighter which makes it more manoeuvrable on site. We were able to use a 12 tonne digger instead of the usual 25 tonne digger to move the new cage.

We’ve done the test: same machine, same operator. The Hardox EnduroBlade doubled our wear life from 700 to 1400 hours — that’s a big win for us.

 Strenx enabled  Gary Douglas Engineers Ltd  to install New Zealand's largest truck-mounted Palfinger on this Hino 10x4 tractor unit.

Strenx enabled Gary Douglas Engineers Ltd to install New Zealand's largest truck-mounted Palfinger on this Hino 10x4 tractor unit.

We used the Strenx 700 MC+ plate to construct the subframe on this truck. The ability to have pieces cut from 9m lengths of plate enabled us to make the structure in single piece top, bottom and side plates, alleviating the need for additional mounting plates and potential cracking issues.
