Client: Schick Contracting and Cartage

Equipment purchased: Bomag BW213D-4

Waikato regional manager Mark Dawbin has recently added to Hamilton-based Schick Contracting & Cartage’s machine fleet with two new 15-tonne BOMAG BW213 compactors. The machines have been deployed to two of the many sites this fast-growing firm is currently working on.
The Te Rapa area of Hamilton is rapidly transitioning from an industrial suburb to a multi- use environment; as much a home to manufacturers and mega malls as it is to large- scale green space environments. There is plenty of development work underway, and Schick relies on tough machines such as the BOMAG BW213 to do the hours, even in the company’s own backyard.
Dawbin is flat out on a variety of projects when I catch up with him; the company - which currently employs over 70 staff - is a familiar name in the Waikato and beyond. In fact, with an increasing amount of work on in Auckland, Dawbin will soon be deploying a full-time team there as well. Schick established a Christchurch branch some years ago and undertakes work all over the central North Island.
“We have a large machine fleet which takes a lot of managing, so naturally we look to machines that do exactly as we expect of them. We have another older BOMAG machine on the fleet already, so we know and trust in the engineering the brand offers.”
Dawbin also trusts in the relationship the company enjoys with BOMAG distributor Porter
Equipment; another proven Waikato- headquartered company.
“There’s no denying having Porters almost next door helps things, but we trust the company to support us wherever we’re working. We have a variety of machines on a variety of sites and many are much further afield than the Greater Hamilton area.
“That’s the strength of the Porter Equipment network though; they have representation in every corner of the country, so we’re covered both here in town and out in the field.”
Schick Contracting & Cartage has kitted out the BOMAG single drum roller I visit today with a pad foot for effective soil compaction.
This capability is matched up front by BOMAG’s patented scraper beam across the front of the drum. The scraper teeth caps are made from high wear-resistant, tempered manganese steel and can be individually replaced, so Dawbin’s teams can get an optimum performance out of their BOMAG compactors every time in a variety of construction environments.
“We have a very diversified portfolio,” continues Dawbin. “We undertake site works, civil construction, road building and highway infrastructure, transportation, drainage and stopbank construction, as well as large-scale subdivision landscaping to name our key areas of interest.
“Our machines could be deployed anywhere and we need to know they will perform anywhere. Perhaps more importantly, we need to know that they can be serviced and supported anywhere too.”
Wherever Schick’s machine ends up, the operator enjoys a great office in the outdoors through BOMAG’s superior cab comfort and outward visibility, thanks mainly to the manufacturer’s clever frameless windscreen design and a driver’s seat that can be shifted and adjusted to suit any operator preference.
And with Schick Contracting & Cartage bringing new people into the industry through their in-house training programs, ease-of-use is also a priority as newer staff members experience onsite work.
“We’re definitely full-on at the moment, which is great. But that doesn’t mean we take big purchases like mobile plant lightly,” Dawbin concludes.
“Porter Equipment has been a good source of new technology and horsepower for us and I imagine they will continue to be. Similarly we like what we get out of using BOMAG equipment and I see the value in continuing to trust in their gear.
“If I don’t have to spend my day worrying about whether a machine is going to do what we need it to, then that’s a good day in my books.”
