[SPONSORED CONTENT] Australian Cat dealers don’t supply these machines, so Toowoomba-based machinery business Flamsteed Equipment has taken the initiative and is importing new Cat 950 GC wheel loaders directly from China


Flamsteed Equipment Pty Ltd are offering brand new Cat 950 GC wheel loaders specially prepared for Australian conditions at a very competitive price. These machines are covered by a full 12 month, 1,000hr warranty provided by the company.

"These wheel loaders are aimed at the small to medium size contractor," Flamsteed Equipment Pty Ltd managing director Mark Flamsteed explains.

"It's a genuine Caterpillar product, but it's a lower cost alternative when compared to what you would find at an Australian Caterpillar dealership.

"They haven't compromised on any of the Caterpillar features. They make them in the Caterpillar factory in Shanghai with a view to targeting the developing nations such as South America, South East Asia, the Middle East and South Africa.

These particular wheel loaders from Flamsteed Equipment also have a number of features that operators actually prefer in terms of design.

"The real attraction is that they have very simple and basic features. The whole world is going towards emission control and Tier-4 engines, whereas these machines have Tier-3 engines.

Keeping it simple and old school has proved to be a winning formula in terms of giving operators what they want in a machine.

"Our wheel loaders only have three electronic control modules, so any mechanic in the country can work on them," Mark reveals.

"Another thing that operators like about these machines is that they have a steering wheel rather than a joystick.


"When we bring them in they are quite standard so we do quite a lot of work on them.

"We import these machines with tubeless tyres. Then we install ride control, a quick hitch and a ripper.

"We manufacture the quick hitch and the ripper ourselves and the ride control we do through our hydraulics specialist - so all of this work is done in house.

"Not everyone will want a ripper and not everyone will want a quick hitch, so we can tailor the configurations to whatever the customer requires.

"The bottom line is, for $310,000 + GST it’s a fantastic deal for a wheel loader with these features."

Flamsteed Equipment is a family owned and operated business established in 1963 that sources quality used equipment from around the world from the network of excellent suppliers and makes these available to buyers all around Australia for heavy and demanding use in a wide range of industries.

The company specialises in late model, low hour Caterpillar, Komatsu and Hitachi equipment and a number of other reputable brands that Australian operators have grown to love and trust.

Traditionally a used equipment reseller, Flamsteed Equipment only started bringing brand new machinery into Australia in the last few years and this 950 GC wheel loader (pictured) is a perfect example of the top quality new machinery that Flamsteed is bringing into Australia.

"This is modern yet basic, no-nonsense wheel loader is very easy to operate and maintain," Mark explains.

Its operations cover new and used equipment and attachment sales, new and used parts and components sales, machinery and field services and machine rental.

The team at Flamsteed Equipment is constantly delivering both new and low hour used machinery to operators and rental hire businesses throughout Australia.
