Erik Abbes –
We worked the new demo Minuteman XL8 (Rhino) from EuroGate International on steel fencing posts [with a diameter of] 60mm with a steel insert.
First impression strong and sturdy machine, and good impact force on the steel posts. Price and quality in line.
Certainly a unit for the future.
