"I have been associated with McCullochs Hydraulic Engineers through Deepcore Drilling since our company moved to bendigo from Stawell in victoria 8 years ago to commence the drilling contract for Bendigo gold mine.
In this time McCullochs have been invaluable to the success of deepcore drilling and its maintenace department in supplying and repairing hydraulic components such as pumps, fiitings,hoses, hydraulic cylinders, power tracks anda range of gear too numerous to mention. We have also consulted their experienced team to give advice and recommendation in solving problems in hydraulic systems to which we had no answers, thus getting the machines back operating in a timely manner with little fuss and down time.
Deepcore drilling has such confidence in their ability to deliver a quality service and product that we purchased a brand new surface drill rig, a DR 950 multi-purpose rig, with a safety compliance to enter any mine site in Australia as a standard which was built entirely at the McCullochs site in Bendigo. This machine has now been in field drilling for more than 2 years with little to no problems to mention. The entire rig build went off without a hitch and Deepcore drilling was consulted throughout the entire process.
The fact that McCullochs are a local company has been a definite advantage in not only supporting our drilling operations on a daily basis but also when the rig build took place it was observed at every stage throughout the build.
I would highly recommend McCullochs for any products they take on; the experiences I and Deepcore Drilling have had with them have been very positive and to this day still have a strong working relationship."

"I have worked with McCullochs Hydraulic engineers for nearly twenty years, as maintenance supervisor at Empire Rubber, Bendigo Mining & currently Mandalay resources.
During my 18 years at Empire Rubber they provided both hydraulic parts & equipment for maintenance department. They also delivered many rubber production machines to the plant over a number of years as turnkey pieces of plant. I have been dealing with McCullochs for 6 years while working for Mandalay resources, with the same great support over the twenty years only improving
Recently they constructed new gold room shed for Mandalay resources, a large project for us that was delivered on time & under budget.
The great advantage of them being e a local company, is that over the years they have been able to deliver after hours breakdown maintenance support when required. This has really helped us at Mandalay over 2013 x-mass period as we had support when our crusher broke down several times."
