When it comes to picking a power tool, one of the biggest decisions that you’ll probably be making is whether to buy corded or cordless, brushed or brushless. No longer the “gutless” wonder of the power tool world, cordless power tools now offer just as much power, torque and longevity of use as their corded cousins.
As the cold winter months descend upon us the desire to rug up can be enticing and even thoughts of postponing projects or to stop entertaining at home can creep in.

Just as we have learnt that “oils ‘aint oils” the same is true for rotary hammer drills. Don’t waste time with an el-cheapo drill that just isn’t up to the task.

Elevating work platforms (EWP), such as slab scissor lifts, cherry pickers or vertical masts can make your job a great deal easier. Whether you need to reach a workspace right up high or a workspace that requires you to go up and over a fixed obstacle, you’ll be able to find a EWP that’s suited to your job at Centenary Hire. With several to choose from however, selecting the right one for your needs doesn’t need to be a complex process.
The Snorkel MHP 13AT trailer mounted boom lift, commonly referred to as a Cherry Picker, with its robust & compact design is built for the Australian market. This in part, is what makes it the ideal choice for tradespeople and maintenance applications. The MHP 13AT cherry picker comes with numerous standard features that are all designed to make a range of jobs at height easier and safer.
The cherry picker has a maximum platform height of 10.9 metres which remains under the legislative requirement of a high risk work licence for platforms 11m or over. What’s more, at a platform height 7m this machine boasts a massive outreach of 6m which is achieved by a clever telescopic boom design. The solid steel platform is rated for a capacity of 215kg, either being two people or one person plus equipment. During lifts and descents, the platform automatically maintains a horizontal position and if the operator needs to be closer to their work surface, the platform can rotate left and right.
When using an Airless Spray unit to complete a job that is a long way from a power source, the common sense approach used by efficient trades people and DIY enthusiasts is to use a petrol airless spray unit.
Congratulations to those from FaceBook who got this answer correct!
Guess what just arrived at Centenary Hire …. a Petrol Airless Spray Unit!
Take this airless spray wherever your work is. No power lead trip hazards trailing behind the machine. No overheating motors due to excessive extension cords. No long paint hoses taking up half of your paint tin just to get paint to the spray nozzle. No poorly painted surfaces because the airless spray just didn’t quite reach far enough. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee no poorly painted surfaces …your spray technique may need some work. Don’t worry, we have an instruction sheet to help with that!
Never seen how efficient an airless spray unit is? Check out the equipment video at the bottom of any of our airless spray equipment listings.
The breeze in Sumner Park rarely lets us down when we decide to run the flag up the flag pole!
Looking forward to celebrating Australia Day tomorrow with our families.
