The Keith family owned Rocky Point Mulching is Australia’s only family-owned and operated sugar cane farm and mulch processing plant and has put its faith in JCB telehandlers to work in every aspect of their operation.

Counting 13 members of the family working full-time and with an annual turnover of $30 million, they recently launched a new division, Rocky Point Recycling, to turn waste timber into garden mulches.

Rocky Point Mulching operations manager, Josh Keith, says the seven JCB telehandlers the business owns are always hard at work and used across all divisions.

“We’ve been purchasing JCB machinery for the past 10 years and we haven’t looked back as they are so versatile.

“We use them for picking up the large square bales of the mulch, site maintenance and cleaning, and general duties around the operations,” he said.

“JCB is the only brand of telehandler we buy as they are productive, efficient and help us maximise uptime.”

He also likes their versatility and high tech features.

“We especially find the engine upgrades with the speed cooling fan and transmission electronics most helpful, as well as the boom dampening which all add up to operator comfort and machine efficiency,” Mr Keith said.

“The engine speed cooling fan is great in the hot and humid Queensland temperatures, as it reacts to changing temperatures, which maximises our fuel efficiency.

“The all-round visibility with tinted glass is another plus as well,” he said.

Service and support is also a feature.

“Most of the time it feels like the JCB team is working only for us, which is great.

“They are always helpful when it comes to service questions, maintenance or when we are looking to upgrade,” Mr Keith said.

“JCB’s constant product improvements make purchasing a JCB an exciting time, and we try to add a new machine at least every 12 months to keep the fleet up to date with their technology changes.”
