September 2013

September started with a full day’s visit to the Fratelli Camisa Track Barrow Factory situated in the beautiful mountain region south of Parma, Italy.

David & Colleen were welcomed to the factory by Massimo Camisa and his charming wife Chiara who was the interpreter for the visit, with her perfect command of the English language.

The day was spent inspecting the production facilities where the Camisa TP680 high lift track barrow is produced. Slight modification have been made to the 2013 production machines to increase the load carrying capacity to 1000 Kg when the bucket is in the lowered position, the maximum weight when lifting remains the same at 800 Kg. Making the TP680 the narrowest track barrow with the largest capacity on the market., with the added ability to tip into a full sized skip.

The visit concluded with an inspection of the spares department where all the the items required to maintain Camisa machinery are available for immediate shipment to destinations throughout the world.

May 2014

May 14th saw the delivery of a Camisa TP680 Track Barrow to Penrhyn Tool Hire based at two depots in North Wales.

Richard Aitkinhead (Director) Penrhyn Tool Hire placed the order with David Salt of Blade Machinery after discussions with him on Blade’s stand at the recent Executive Hire Show.

Richard bought his first TP680 in 2004, so after  ten years of reliable and profitable service Richard felt it was time to replace it with a new machine.

The decision to buy a another Camisa TP680 was easy, after checking his machine records, Richard found down time and the cost of repair spares were minimal and customers requests for the machine showed they liked it and had confidence with the machine.

The original TP680 will be kept as a back-up machine for busy hire periods.
