Rokbak to show live articulated hauler demonstrations at Hillhead 2022
Rokbak is showcasing three articulated haulers at Hillhead 2022, allowing visitors to get up close to the machines, speak to product experts, and see them in action. The RA40 is on Rokbak's stand at N14 and an RA30 is at the Molson Group's stand J3. An RA40 is also working at the quarry face demonstration area, where visitors can see it doing real-world work in a live quarry environment.
"At Hillhead we're showing visitors how the RA30 and RA40 deliver low total cost of ownership and high productivity on a variety of jobs, including quarries, large-scale construction projects, infrastructure developments, and mines," says Paul Douglas, managing director of Rokbak. "We're currently seeing huge demand for our articulated haulers, with dealers and customers excited to get hold of the new machines."
Since becoming part of the Volvo Group almost eight years ago, Rokbak has introduced multiple improvements with the aim of delivering ideal hauler power, performance, and total cost of ownership. For example, for the European market, both the RA30 and RA40 feature the latest EU Stage V emissions-compliant engine, boasting up to a 7 percent improvement in fuel efficiency compared to older EU Stage IV engines.
"Over the last few years we have made major improvements in every part of our business," says Douglas. "The machines we have on the market today are in a different league to what was on offer previously. It has been a process of continual evolution. That's why we felt it was right to recognize this evolution with a new brand name and to launch an exciting new chapter in our history."
