Importing Farm Machinery For Over 15 Years
If you’re looking to buy a UTV vehicle (See our ELECTRIC UTV or PETROL UTV), the team at Tuatara have the expert knowledge to give you professional advice. Geoff Hill has been importing agricultural and construction machinery from China for over 15 years. Qingmei Pang has an engineering background, as well as qualifications in international business.
In 2017, they founded Tuatara Machinery Limited, trading as Tuatara UTV, to produce a UTV specifically for Queenslanders: the TUATARA.
Why “Tuatara”? The iconic tuatara is an ancient lizard species. Each tuatara can live for more than 100 years, and its rugged appearance is strangely appealing. What better image could there be for Queensland’s own UTV?
Geoff and Qingmei have designed the TUATARA UTV from the ground up to handle Queensland conditions. It’s manufactured in China to their exacting specifications. The TUATARA is designed with strength in mind. It’s got plenty of power and carrying capacity, and a go-anywhere capability. Best of all, it’s made of tough, enduring steel, with plastic banished to only the passenger compartment shrouding.
The TUATARA continues to evolve in response to customer feedback. Tuatara UTV is determined to make the TUATARA the offroad side-by-side UTV vehicle of choice for farmers, hunters, contractors and recreational users. There is no need for a special license and it can be driven on a Class C License.
Craig has joined Tuatara after moving to Queensland from Christchurch, NZ, in 2022. Craig has been integrally involved in Tuatara’s success as a business coach for both founders, assisting in the growth and development of Tuatara.
Craig has an excellent understanding of the vehicle’s success and value in the market of farming and hunting utility vehicles.
