We want to thank and acknowledge the below Suppliers for stepping up and supporting HIANZ and our members by taking time to put together a presentation and run a webinar on their products and services. These webinars have provided support and training to our members on the use of their equipment and other parts of their business.

And thanks to everyone who dialled in and engaged with the presenters with their questions. We hope you all got something out of it.  These webinars were recorded and so you can go online and watch these on our website – HIANZ Webinars . However, the added benefit of the live HIANZ webinars is that you are able to ask questions and get the answer right away.

Ezicheq ezicheq.com – first webinar off the rank, thanks Jeff and Andrea. Ezicheq is a paperless checklist and compliance system with Hire specific libraries of check lists and our ESDS sheets. Any sized member should be seriously looking at what they have to offer.

The next two suppliers, I cannot thank them enough for their respect for each other and doing several webinars each. Both companies are true competitors but worked with us and each other to provide relative and different topics for test and tagging.

Test & Tag Trainingtestandtagtraining.co.nz – Grant Anderson provided us with three different sessions – Testing 3 phase equipment, testing of lifeguards and testing of generators.

Metrotest –  metrotest.co.nz  – Mark Goldthorpe, carried on the theme of testing and tagging, also giving us several webinars – How to add lifespan to your electrical equipment and PAT tester care, safe use and maintenance. Mark was also giving away free training to anyone in level 3 or 4 via their online training system.

Both Metrotest and Test and Tag Training Ltd are promoted on our “Industry training” page HIANZ Training – Hire Industry Association of New Zealand .

New Zealand Equipment Groupnzeg.co.nz  provided us with some good insight to the Takeuchi range of excavators and some of the things to consider around excavators in your fleet generally.

Transdieseltransdiesel.com Rob is a very clever man when it comes to grease. He knew way more about grease than anyone I have met before! Their presentation on types, how it works, when to use and what to use for greasing was very informative.

Trackunittrackunit.com Continuing an international flair was Mike Cranston from the USA who did a low fly by whilst presenting on our webinars. Mike, assisted by Yon presented on behalf of the value of telematic and how it can add value back into your business.

Hansa Productshansaproducts.com/nz Drew gave us extensive knowledge of the Hansa C13 chipper and the maintenance of such. You have to watch the webinar to see the Hansformer!

Holer Diamond Toolsholer.co.nz Ali gave us a great run down on their hire specific range and also took us through their two new products – dustcut, a dust extraction system for any angle grinder and then he gave us a demonstration of their new product, Woody.

Powerpac – powerpac.co.nz Jay and Ben Suckling gave us something different to consider in our fleet, zero emission construction equipment by Wacker Neuson. The range of battery powered compaction equipment was awesome and the run times of them was impressive.

JLG Lift Equipment jlg.com/en. Last, but not least in this series was Cameron, Luke and Arron, who talked about their customer support, online parts library and ordering system, JLG University and their telematics system “Clearsky”. There was even a sneak preview of the recently launched 670SJ self-levelling boom lift.

Going forward, we are going to hold these webinars every Thursday at 1pm.

If there is something you want to learn about, drop us a line and better still, tell the supplier to “step up to the mark” and provide it!

Thanks a million to those suppliers that supported us, members, please consider supporting them in return.
