Started trading

Started in the jukeboxes and amusement machine industry.


Fitted an Eagle tail lifter

Our first issue was how can we transport our jukeboxes and amusement machines to different locations as two or more of us used to drag them on to the back of the ute, and lift them off at the end of the trip. We then fitted an Eagle tail lifter in 1993 and now we've been using these tail lifters almost daily and consider them a key business asset.


The first Stair Climbing Hand Truck

The Stair Climbing Hand Trucks came in 1994 after I damaged my back moving equipment up stairs. We used to get four people on a corner each and lift, but that was very uneconomical and was damaging the equipment, not to mention our backs! We tried the six wheeled trolleys, but found them to be jolting the equipment around and as much work as manual lifting. It wasn't until we discovered the Escalera electric stair climbing trolleys that we finally had the solution.


New Zealand agents for Hercules

We were so taken with the ease of use that we eventually became the New Zealand agents for Hercules so that we could offer the same benefits to others.

Now with a few years operating a MS 66 (Hercules / Escalera), we have found a much better replacement; the WESCO DC 66. The reliability and the quality of the DC 66 is far superior than anything we have come across of its type. We are proud to offer the WESCO range of stair climber to New Zealand at a very completive price.
