Renting Hidromek - a temporary addition to the fleet

May 6, 2024
All-rounder Anthony Worth from Crushing and Screening Equipment, talks about hiring the Hidromek HMK640 Wheel Loader

We recently had the pleasure of catching up with Anthony to discuss his journey towards owning his own business. Originally from Wollongong, Anthony was born and raised in the steel manufacturing industry. Even as a young boy, he was fascinated with machinery and always had a spanner in hand. He began his diesel mechanic apprenticeship at the steel works in Port Kembla. Where he gained invaluable experience in various manufacturing practices, including fabrication, mechanical rebuilds and repairs, and production cost analysis.

Anthony has drawn on his extensive knowledge to build a successful family business, CSE - Crushing and Screening Equipment.  The company specializes in fabrication, engineering, repair and rebuild solutions for the extractive industry, as well as crushing and screening contracting. The team, consisting of 15 people, operates primarily in Queensland, servicing the entire state. They are currently located in Mackay and Mt Isa. With such a deep understanding of the industry, it's challenges and production costs, CSE can add value through providing advice, repairs and cost-effective solutions. CSE's current fleet includes a range of equipment, from crushing and screening machines to earthmoving equipment such as Wheel Loaders and Excavators. This successful small business proves that your work really does speak for itself, with most clients discovering them through word-of-mouth recommendations.

In his business dealings, Anthony was already familiar working with the Onetrak team at Caboolture. CSE own a Striker HQR1112 Impact Crusher and have it serviced through the Caboolture branch. So, when an opportunity came up for a six-month project recently discussions with Onetrak began. Colin, the Territory Manager for Onetrak in Queensland, came up with a proposal to rent equipment from Onetrak and that made perfect sense. Although Anthony hadn't driven or owned any Hidromek equipment before, after visiting the branch and speaking with David Hazell, Onetrak's Managing Director, CSE decided to hire a HMK640 Wheel Loader and an HMK410 Excavator.

The HMK 640 WL heavy-duty loader, equipped with a Mercedes engine delivering 324 HP and 1600 Nm torque, boasts a substantial 26.3 tons operating weight and 5 m³ bucket capacity. Anthony noted that they had found the wheel loader to be powerful, fast and very economical. The operators found it quite comfortable and comparable to the other brands they have in their fleet. CSE was especially happy with the bucket size and Anthony found the steering wheel control preferrable although some of his staff prefer the joystick controls. Anthony also praised the HMK410 excavator, citing its stability, computer screen, and impressive cycle times for its size.

Overall, Anthony and CSE are pleased with the machines. According to Anthony, the machines are reliable and efficient, and the rental contract includes servicing, which was a huge relief. Onetrak has provided excellent service and support, with their staff promptly resolving any issues that arose. Anthony would definitely consider renting from Onetrak again in the future.
