Mining equipment sales spark keen interest

Mining equipment sales spark keen interest This Cat 785C is among the equipment in the Middlemount tender package.

Hassalls is re-marketing 26 heavy earthmoving assets across two tenders in the Bowen Basin this week.

National Resources Account Manager Steve Wainhouse said the machines
were being sold as part of fleet replacement measures from two coal mines.

They are expected to draw about $4–5 million.

“We are receiving a lot of interest both locally and offshore for the assets, with the off -highway trucks and 300-plus tonne excavators expected to be put back to work by Tier 2 and 3 contractors domestically,” he said.

“Alternatively the Komatsu dozers are receiving a large amount of interest into the Asian market, predominantly from China as they are the largest users of 475 dozers.

“We also receive package prices from dismantling companies that will strip the assets for components to be refurbished and sold back into the mining industry nationally through the equipment exchange services set up for Tier 1 miners. ”

The tenders close his Thursday (May 23) at 3pm.
