Specialising in the sale and purchase of new and used construction machinery, NZAM is home to bulldozers, excavators, loaders, trucks, and trailers of all shapes and sizes. The company also offers a full workshop employing a dedicated team of mechanics, auto electricians, and engineers. This means they are able to carry out any modifications requested by clients such as buckets and guarding.

Established in 1997 by the Hart family, NZAM supplies top-quality used machinery to the earthmoving and civil construction markets. Initially, the focus of the business was centred around earthmoving and roading developments, eventually diversifying into hire and machinery sales with the formation of Hireways Ltd in 2003.

NZAM has been a part of Palmerston North’s Rangitikei Street landscape for almost two decades, but next year, the business will be
packing up their machines and heading off to newer, bigger premises in Tremaine Ave. The new premises is twice as big as their
current location, which, of course, means more room for more machines.

Jayden Currie, NZAM’s marketing manager says 2016 has been a busy one for the company, and particularly, for their Wellington branch. Located in Petone, NZAM Wellington has been growing rapidly to meet the demand for quality secondhand machinery in the area, including works in Transmission Gully and the MacKays to Peka Peka expressway.

Recognising the need for lighter off-road dump trucks in New Zealand, NZAM became the exclusive agent for the Hydrema brand of dumptrucks in 2006. The articulated dump trucks (ADTs) are sold new and used and have quickly become the benchmark for quality and off-road performance. Manufactured in Germany and Denmark since 1983, the Hydrema dumpers are well known around the world for their supreme performance, ease of use, low weight, and great durability.

These dumpers are offered in the 10-tonne payload, 20-tonne payload and the 10-tonne rail versions. With typical European quality, the Germanbuilt dumpers are also extremely robust and competitively priced. The tip tray can be removed and replaced with almost any tank or setup available. Current configurations around the world include fertiliser spreaders, hook-lifters, water sprayers, grain bins, and snowploughs. NZAM also offers specialised rail-certified Hydremas to the rail market. Operators rate these as highly efficient with swivel multi-tip and rapid road/rail adaptability.

NZAM also stocks new parts for Hydrema machines and their Hydrema-trained technicians are fully qualified to undertake all service and repairs.
