Sets of wheels up for grabs at ACE

Among the more visible way for show-goers to try their luck was Bearcat Tyres’ Pimp My Skidsteer competition, which gave punters the opportunity to go into the draw for a set of one-of-a-kind, custom-made chrome wheels and tyres for their skid-steer loader. On its ACE stand last week, Bearcat had on display a “pimped up” Toyota Huski SDK11, complete with the triple-plated chrome and gold wheels, leopard-print seat covers and control covers, a gold bucket and a mirror ball. Bearcat this week announced the winner, Greg Lainge of gate-maker Red Hill Country Gates, which is located in Dromana, Victoria. Another competition gave show-goers the opportunity to win a remote control off-road car valued at more than $1000 by getting them to guess the bursting point of a piece of hydraulic hose. In Enzed’s Hose Burst competition, a length of Parker 772 Hose, which has a 4000-pounds-per-square-inch working pressure, saw Enzed deliberately – and under controlled conditions – burst the hose. Whoever gave the closest estimate of the final burst pressure won the prize. The identity of the winner of the Enzed competition was unavailable to CIN at the time of publication.
