Big-scale machinery donated
WITH the help of its partners Bobcat and Doosan, Clark Equipment is making a large donation of equipment valued around $650,000 to aid in flood recovery efforts throughout Queensland.
The first machine of the donation, the Doosan DL200 Wheel Loader, was delivered to the Lockyer Valley Regional Council's Gatton Depot on Thursday, with a Doosan DX140 (14 tonne excavator) to come soon.
The rest of the machines will continue to be delivered to flood-affected councils in coming days.
“I am pleased the council is the first to receive machines from our donation,” Clark Equipment's General Manager Steve Goodall said.
“Lockyer is facing a damage bill of up to $1 billion, and a significant part of that will be paid from Council funds.
“We hope that by donating these machines, we can be helping work to commence immediately on rebuilding bridges, roads and other vital pieces of infrastructure.”
The equipment donated is valued at about $200,000 to aid in flood recovery efforts and clear debris in parks, roads and drainage around Grantham, Helidon and Murphys Creek.
The range of machines Clark Equipment is donating will be used in an array of different recovery projects.
Bobcat Loaders and compact excavators ill be used to help with clean up and small-mid size earthmoving, a Doosan large excavator and wheel loader for larger worksites, and Doosan Portable Power generators and lighting equipment for worksites requiring power and light for night operations.
Clark Equipment is a BRW Top 500 Australian Private Company with 60 years of experience in supplying equipment.
They have more than 400 employees and operate in about 20 locations across Australia and New Zealand (including eight in Queensland).
