Gateway specialises in working with its customers to tailor solutions for any scenario – no matter what the budget or time constraints.
In the event that we do not stock an item but the parts are not carried or rare with OEM suppliers, we are happy to customise a solution. This has come in the form of purchasing a machine to strip for core parts or sourcing a component to rebuild.
If a customer had a large number of components in one fleet that were all due for mid-life rebuilds, we have been known to package a solution to best suit. IE purchase a machine to dismantle on behalf of the customer to provide core components, then provide ongoing rebuilds to the return cores to suit the fleet maintenance schedule.
Some case studies of this are as follows:
Large Australian Contract Miner
The customer had a large fleet of Komatsu HD785-7 trucks all coming to their mid-life rebuild stage, and wanted to reduce the costs quoted by OEM.
Gateway Equipment purchased a full HD785-7 for the customer and dismantled it into parts. These parts were taken ownership by the customer for future use whilst the powertrain was refurbished and used for their fleet change out schedule.
Contract Miner Working Offshore in Brazil
The customer was finding it hard to source parts for their fleet of Caterpillar 777G machines on an offshore mine site. Gateway Equipment sourced and dismantled a full 777G machine on their behalf. Stripping and refurbishing all major power train components then packing it into sea containers ready for export.
Large Mining Rental Company
One of our rental customers was finding it increasingly difficult to source parts for their 777F machines from the OEM dealer. They purchased a full 777F machine and employed Gateway to dismantle it on their behalf. Some parts were stripped and supplied on transport stands as used components, whilst others were refurbished in our workshop to be kept on the site as reconditioned spares.
Civil and Mining Construction Company
A customer required a large amount of 988H parts for an aging fleet. Gateway sourced and dismantled a full 988H machine on their behalf. All small parts were cataloged and stored at Gateway’s premises for the customer to access whenever needed. Whilst all major parts were refurbished by Gateway and put aside for an ongoing rebuild program. The major parts were then cycled through many machines and further rebuilt by Gateways team to align with their scheduled maintenance change outs.
