"We’re absolutely wrapped," Boss NZ managing director Paul Herbison says.  "The interest in our products and the sales opportunities we’ve achieved during the event has been massive."

A major crowd-pleaser at the demo site was the ‘Beat this Challenge’, which offered a free Xcentric Crusher bucket to anyone who could find a bucket that could out-perform the Boss XC 30 Xcentric Crusher bucket.

But no one came forward with a better bucket. The demo Xcentric bucket, which produces around 80m3 per hour, will soon be on its way to a customer. Its twin on the stand is now on its way to New Zealand.

"This demonstration—and the free offer—showed just how good the Xcentric product range is," Paul says. "When it comes to outright production, product quality, and low maintenance performance, they are in a class all of their own and carry a complete two-year warranty, including belts."

The Xcentric Crusher Bucket range was launched at last year’s Diesel Dirt and Turf, and since then, it has gained a significant share of the Australasian market.

In New Zealand, Boss Attachments is already seeing repeat business potential with a number of companies interested in adding a second bucket to their equipment range.

The new Xcentric Ripper and MB Dust Cannon 


Other new products launched by Boss Attachments at the Expo included the new Xcentric Ripper Mining Series range and MB Dust Cannon with the XR42 and DC35 on-show.

Like the Xcentric Crusher Bucket, the new Xcentric Ripper is also a class leader and Boss says it is the original of its type in the market.After more than 10 years’ of development in the design and manufacture of what they say is the world’s most productive, reliable, and technologically advanced hydraulic ripper, Xcentric International has taken the Xcentric Ripper range to a whole new dimension with their all-new Xcentric Ripper Mining Series.

The Xcentric Ripper is a hydraulic excavator attachment designed for the mass extraction of rock in mining, quarrying, and civil applications.

It has been developed with a patented system of ‘Impact Technology by accumulation of energy’, which often makes the Xcentric Ripper up to five times more productive than hydraulic breakers.

The MB Dust Cannon, which beats dust problems by weighing down dust particles by binding them with droplets of water so they quickly fall to ground, also created a lot of interest. It also helped expo visitors cool off in the 39-degree Penrith heat.

"With the increased focus on health and safety, plus the growing awareness of silicosis, these units will deliver major benefits for the quarry, earthmoving, and demolition sectors," Paul says.
