Elphinstone’s focus has always been to deliver customers a total haulage solution based on their specific haul requirements.

The best voice of customer feedback is a repeat order and Elphinstone is excited to be delivering the first of four additional Haulmax 3900 dump trucks to the same valued customer in Suriname.
