Posted by Loadrite

Anderson Helicopters Limited are a locally owned & operated helicopter company providing services throughout the South Island primarily from our two West Coast bases. Main base of operations is Hokitika Airport with a satelite base in Stillwater, 10 minutes drive from Greymouth.

AHL operate 6, 4 & 3 passenger seat helicopters with lift capabilities of up to 1250Kg.

AHL highly experienced pilots can carry out just about any job involving a helicopter, from Precision lifting of materials into the Southern Alps to flying tourists around our beautiful landscapes.

LOADRITE were recommended by Marlborough Helicopters, Sandra called the LOADRITE office to see what we could do for her operation in Hokitika, they are running a mid sized Wolf wheel loader with a hopper aero bucket. The requirement is to achieve accurate payload weights, quickly.

Using the LOADRITE SPRINT system in fast static mode the hopper is filled and lifted to a set height, the weight is immediately displayed and then as the release gate is opened the weight bleeds down was the product flows out of the bucket, the displayed weight is the remaining payload in the hopper bucket. Once the desired target weight is reached, the weight is added to the running total so AHL can track the total material loaded to date for the job.

The load is then ready to drop into the helicopter spreader bucket as soon as it is set down.
