The gong is all set to sound in the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show. There may be more health and safety guidelines in place this year but spirits are high, with a long list of parts and accessories businesses looking forward to the opportunity to connect with visitors and talk about their latest offerings.

Many parts and accessories business managers that we have spoken to agree that, although Covid-19 created some uncertainty within the industry last year, particularly around March and April, from May onwards the industry rallied and there was a significant increase in demand for safer parts and more efficient equipment.

Here, we take a look at what to expect at some of the stands this year.

 

FINDLAY IMPORT & TRADE

Stand 15 Foyer

Findlay will be showcasing many of its 20+ brands of tyres and other products, including a wide range of steel and alloy wheels, tyre-fitting machines and those essential tools to change, fit and repair tyres.

"The road to controlling wheel and tyre costs, to make money in road transport, is littered with obstacles, including sub-standard products, pricing that’s out of control and service that’s more rhetoric than fact," Findlay Import & Trade director Neil Findlay says.

"We at Findlay’s have 50 years’ experience in the trucking industry – as successful fleet operators for most of those years through good times and bad – which taught us a lot. Whether you’re an owner-driver or a national fleet operator, we have you covered."

The company is also offering a promotion for Brisbane Truck Show visitors.

"See us at the Brisbane Truck Show and share in our Fun Escapes promotion. Just buy $4,000 of anything and receive a five-day, four-night holiday voucher for a luxury resort," Findlay says.

The company will also have some key suppliers on hand to talk about their products and launch some new items that will hit the market this year.

Established in 1979, Warby Tools specialises in supplying tools for truck, bus, trailer and earthmoving sectors.

"We work very closely with our suppliers to get the best deals for our customers," Warby Tools manager Justin Currie says.

"We have a loyal customer base and this is due to not only our expertise and guidance on tools to suit but also our prices. This year we have launched a new logo and hope to move into online sales as well."

 

Maha’s MBT7250 extreme heavy duty roller brake tester is one of its most popular workshop equipment items

 

MAHA AUSTRALIA

Stand 103 Foyer

The team at Maha Australia will be featuring two of its most popular products – the all new RGA-UC wireless column lift and MBT7250 extreme heavy duty roller brake tester – at the show.

"Available in 15-tonne and 18-tonne axle capacities, these brake systems allow users to
comprehensively test brakes, diagnose faults and weigh a vehicle without removing the wheels," Maha Australia, NZ and Pacific Islands MD Mick Lauster says.

"With minimal operational costs, this saves time and allows faster throughput in the workshop to increase profit in your business."

Headquartered in Brisbane, Maha Australia produces and supplies premium German-made lifting and testing equipment that is fully supported by the factory and specialist technicians and meets Australian, NZ and international quality assurance standards.

 

LEVANTA WORKSHOP SOLUTIONS

Stand 134 Foyer

Leading workshop equipment supplier Levanta is planning to showcase a range of solutions at the Truck Show – from column lifts to roller brake testers, hydraulic jacks, tyre changing and balancing equipment and wheel alignment technology.

"Our product line-up represents some of the most renowned global brands in truck wheel alignment technology and roller brake testing," Levanta sales and marketing director Bradley Dunn says. 

"Both of these have a substantial return on investment, something that the industry is hungry to find. This is particularly so with wheel alignment as you can make significant savings in fuel and tyre wear, as well as driver fatigue.

"As the Brisbane Truck Show is held close to the end of financial year (EOFY), we expect to be offering some really hot prices and package deals for anyone that is keen to do business before EOFY."

"Spitwater machines are absolutely ideal for workshop use as well as for large and small fleet owners and similar applications. If you buy before June 30, you can claim the ATO’s small business accelerated depreciation: that’s a 100 per cent write off this year. Find us at the Brisbane Truck Show on the mezzanine level."
