LINDE FORKLIFTS VITAL FOR FAMILY FARM BUSINESS

LINDE FORKLIFTS VITAL FOR FAMILY FARM BUSINESS

LINDE FORKLIFTS VITAL FOR FAMILY FARM BUSINESS June 19, 2018 In 1912 horse drawn ploughs were the mainstay of the family farming business now known as Vanstone Produce Pty Ltd. Four generations later its equipment includes Linde battery-electric forklifts for key roles. Ross Vanstone moved the farm business from south of Brisbane to the Lockyer Valley over a decade ago and the family holding has since expanded from 55 acres to just on 300, divided between shallots and broccolini. Brothers Zac and Justin head the latest generation of the Vanstone family’s farming activities and like others before them they have brought major changes to the business whose vegetables go to all major grocery chains as well as Costco and Lite n’ Easy.   NEIGHBOUR’S ENTHUSIASM PROMPTED LINDE TRIAL “When we first came here our father didn’t have a single forklift,” Zac Vanstone recalled. “He just used a tractor with a fork attachment outside the shed and we would use pallet jacks inside the shed. Now we have three Linde forklifts and they are essential to our business. “One of our neighbours, Simon Farms, has used Linde equipment for quite some time. They kept talking them up, with nothing but praise, so we visited them, saw the forklifts in action and were impressed.” Vanstone Produce uses its Linde forklifts to unload trailers carrying mega-bins filled with vegetables from the paddocks, for moving produce to and from the cool-room and packing shed and for loading trucks.   “We are really impressed by the Linde battery electric system,” GAS FIRST THEN ELECTRIC “Our first forklift was a used Linde 2.5 tonne capacity...
LINDE FLEET UPGRADE FOR NZ’S NAPIER PORT

LINDE FLEET UPGRADE FOR NZ’S NAPIER PORT

LINDE FLEET UPGRADE FOR NZ’S NAPIER PORT March 12, 2018 Booming business at Napier Port on Hawke Bay in New Zealand’s North Island forced the operator to re-examine its needs – and double down on its reliance on Linde Material Handling equipment. Over the last few years, the port’s export throughput, primarily of timber, pulp and agricultural products, has seen steep growth. Napier Port realised that reliance on second-hand material handling equipment, even Linde equipment, would no longer suffice. In recent months the Port Pack facility has taken delivery of seven Linde 396 series H80D eight tonne forklifts which handle one pulp pack at a time, creating stockpiles of pulp packs which in turn are packed into containers by Linde 394 series 4.5 tonne diesel forklifts, fitted with single pack pulp clamps. “When we looked at upgrading our forklift fleet we were confident enough with Linde to make it a paper exercise,” General Cargo Manager Mark Babbington said. “We have other brands of forklift working in the port so we were familiar with their performance and reliability characteristics.   “We wanted quality forklifts which our operators could work with over long shifts and which would be extremely reliable for us.”   LONG EXPERIENCE PROMPTS FAITH IN LINDE “Because of the pace of work until a few years ago, we generally operated with second-hand equipment, often sourced from saw mills. “After a hard life of 12,000 to 15,000 hours at a saw mill these forklifts, which were frequently Linde diesels, would work for us for two or three more years. Because of their low cost we could afford to have...
