Bentley Quarry has recently taken delivery of a new Hamelex White truck body and 4 axle dog tipper combination from MaxiTRANS, which, due to its Performance-Based Standards specifications, has delivered a significant boost to the fleet’s operating capabilities.

Bentley Quarry is a local New South Wales family-operated business specialising in basalt products. Run by Rob and Sarah McKenzie, it offers a range of gravel supplies, including weathered basalt, which meets all level one compaction requirements.

To keep up with industry demand within the region, Bentley Quarry turned to MaxiTRANS and its Hamelex White Truck & Dog Tipper range.

To suit the needs of their freight task, Bentley Quarry opted for a Hamelex White truck body with a four-axle dog trailer. The unit has already been deployed in the fleet and is supplying the northern rivers with quarry products throughout NSW between Tweed Heads, Tamworth and Warriewood.

While this is the fleet’s first experience with a Hamelex White Dog tipper, Rob knew from past experiences with the brand that it would be a good choice.

“We went out to purchase two new Mack Tridents and needed bins, and MaxiTRANS could get the job done in the timeframe that we needed,” he says. “We’ve been using their Hamelex White rigid bodies for over two years, and they’ve always supplied a good product.”

In addition to the already impressive list of standard inclusions featured in the Hamelex White range, Bentley Quarry took the extra step by venturing into the field of Performance-Based Standards (PBS). The truck and dog trailer has been set up as a 19-metre combination under PBS guidelines and comes with a series of extra features. These include rock sheeting on the sides and tailgate, a retractable tarp and Hendrickson airbag suspension on the dog trailer.

“It’s a good, neat, tidy unit,” Rob says. “It’s performed great in its operations so far.”

MaxiTRANS’ in-house PBS specialists worked very closely with Bentley Quarry to design the combination with the aim of maximising the total payload and delivering the greatest efficiency for the whole combination, all while ensuring access requirements were met. As specialists in PBS and proven success in this area, Hamelex White delivered – unlocking greater productivity benefits and efficiency for Bentley Quarry in its northern NSW operation.

To take delivery of the new truck and dog combination, Bentley Quarry engaged with MaxiTRANS’ local dealer, Trailer Sales, which Rob says was a great help.

“Trailer Sales were great with this purchase, which is our second rigid body through them,” he says. “It was a teamed-up effort between them and Southside Truck Centre in Lismore, and it just made the whole process much easier.”

Roger Miller, Bulk Equipment Sales Specialist at Trailer Sales has been Rob’s main point on contact throughout the process. He says Rob was great to deal with, getting to know his company’s needs, we learned quickly that PBS was going to deliver the best returns for their freight task.

“Our business prides itself on understanding our customer’s needs first before recommending a solution that’s going to deliver the best returns suited to their specific freight task,” said Roger.

“With local parts and servicing support, we believe in building long term partnerships with customers. As a partner to the transport industry, we want to help ensure our customers are getting the best returns from their equipment and that we are here to deliver ongoing support whenever it’s needed,” added Roger.

The Hamelex White truck body and dog tipper combination is mainly purpose-built for quarry and construction applications, and by bringing PBS into the mix, Rob says everything has worked out perfectly for Bentley Quarry.

“We’ve had a great experience with the Hamelex White product,” Rob says. “I’m sure we will look at purchasing another one in the future.”
