AUTOMATION: Hard-Line chooses new distributor in Arizona


SUDBURY, Ont. – Hard-Line, a global leader in remote control technology, announces an exciting new partnership with Bingham Equipment Co., who will be Hard-Line’s newest distributor in Arizona.

With 11 locations in the state, Bingham Equipment will distribute Hard-Line’s LP401, MT52, and the RRC. The LP401 is a remote control operated low profile loader (skid steer) that can be used in a variety of restrictive areas where a normal man-operated machine cannot operate. The MT52 is a mini-track loader that can dig, trench, move materials and reach small, tight spots. And the RRC is a radio remote control that is very versatile, can operate any machine, make and model and is designed to be used in rugged and harsh environments.

Chad Rhude, Hard-Line’s VP, US Operations, explains, “We are excited to be working with a great partner like Bingham Equipment Company. With their excellent reputation and many locations throughout the state of Arizona, it gives us a local presence for sales and support of our LP401 product line. We look forward to working with Bingham to showcase the versatility and capability of the LP401 in delivering a low profile, fully remote controlled machine platform to enhance safety and productivity in the municipal, construction and agriculture sectors in Arizona.”
