Boyes Equipment SVS In 2007




In 2007 Boyes Equipment SVS has greatly expanded, grown and exceeded expectations. Through out the past year we have developed our block at 85 Wortley St to include a 25m x 36m, new and fully operational workshop. This workshop includes a 10 tonne overhead crane, 300 mm concrete through out and can take 785’s and 992’s, enabling faster turnaround and better facilities for our employees, therefore benefiting all our clients.

Boyes Equipment SVS now has three operating sheds, our first shed being 50m x 20x is used for numerous component rebuilds whilst our 12m x 20m back shed gives us room for carrying out full rebuilds and general day to day work. Our facilities also include a separate area for sandblasting and painting. With our new workshop we have even more room and better facilities.

During 2007, Boyes Equipment SVS carried out 7 complete rebuilds. The machines included 1 x AD55, 1 x AE55, 1 x R1700G, 2 x R2900’s and 2 x R2900G’s.

In this time we continuously carried on with all our component overhauls and constant field service diagnostics and repairs. The overhauls were done over a 10 month period, which involved 24hrs around the clock. The machines were completed in 4.5 to 5.5 weeks each rebuild.
