New premises for Jonel Hydraulics Christchurch workshop & South Island Update

Jonel Hydraulics are pleased to announce the move of the South Island workshop to larger premises at Unit 6, 20 Parkhouse Road, Wigram. Since opening a South Island hydraulic workshop in April 2011, we have grown to need more room to work on cylinder repairs – and our expanded hydraulic tooling hire service is ready to help with your projects.

Come in and say hello, it would be great to see you.

South Island Hydraulics Update

The Christchurch team are busy with a range of interesting projects in the midst of the Christchurch rebuild, and ongoing demand for BAU hydraulic servicing and hire work.

With a growing team and increasing business, the project to move to new larger premises is underway. Watch this space!

Huge new barrel manufacture for Macraes a record-sized project

North of Dunedin in the Otago region, Macraes is New Zealand’s largest gold producing operation and the two mines have produced over 4 million ounces of gold to date.

Jonel’s Christchurch team recently organised the manufacture of a new 3-4 tonne barrel for a large Hitachi EX25000-6 digger. The project involved cutting off the base eye and gland, manufacturing a new barrel, heat shrinking and welding to complete a full retube.
