Integrated Lifting Solutions For Philippines’ Energy Industry

Power is a fundamental necessity for utility companies and power producers. With the ever-growing energy demand, repairing damage to the distribution grid is a fact of life for most electric utility companies, while new manufacturing facilities are also being constructed. In the Philippines, a nation prone to natural disasters like typhoons, earthquakes, and lightning strikes, these challenges are particularly pronounced, often leaving consumers without power for days or even weeks. Typhoons can cause serious harm to power infrastructure by knocking down utility poles and damaging transmission wires, leading to prolonged power outages across entire regions. With the Philippines situated in a seismically active region, earthquakes can also disrupt the energy supply by causing structural damage to infrastructure. Lightning strikes are another constant threat to power distribution systems, often resulting in equipment failures and power outages. Therefore, ensuring the reliability of power infrastructure under these circumstances is of the utmost importance. From construction to maintenance, we’re ready with the broadest and most versatile fleet of rental equipment and lifting solutions available for the Philippines’ energy industry.

Specific Examples of Integrated Lifting Solutions
  • Typhoon Resilience: The Philippines is no stranger to devastating typhoons. Integrated lifting solutions have played a crucial role in the energy industry’s ability to swiftly respond to typhoon-related damage. For instance, after Typhoon Haiyan in 2013, which caused extensive power line damage, aerial lifts were used to access and repair electrical poles efficiently. This rapid response helped restore power to affected communities faster than traditional methods.
  • Solar Panel Installations: With the growing interest in renewable energy, the Philippines’ energy industry is increasingly turning to solar power. Installing solar panels on rooftops or in remote areas requires specialized equipment like scissor lifts, telehandlers, or a special solar pile driver. These lifting solutions simplify the installation process and improve efficiency.

  • Installing transmission wires and pylon erection: The wires and pylons themselves can be very heavy, so they often require special equipment to lift them into place. On such a project, a crane or a telehandler can make the job much easier. Heavy materials can easily be moved around the installation site and repairs are much quicker and more effective. Many of our customers use a rotating telehandler instead of a crane, partly because of their compact size and increased versatility with a hundred attachments compatible in just a single machine for multifunctional use in confined spaces where cranes cannot be used. Unlike cranes, rotating telehandlers feature 360° rotation, offering height and slew restriction and automatic attachment recognition. Additionally, they also include an onboard self-diagnostic computer and remote control operation. 
Enhancing Safety and Productivity with Aerial Lifts vs. Traditional Ways Such As Climbing or Scaffolding

Aerial lifts, including boom lifts, crawler lifts, and truck-mounted lifts, provide an enhanced level of safety and productivity compared to traditional ways such as climbing or scaffolding while ensuring workers have access to all the tools they need. These lifts offer a safe working platform, especially crucial for tasks involving power lines. By eliminating the need for constant ladder climbing, aerial lifts significantly mitigate fall risks. Consequently, aerial lifts prove invaluable for expediting substation maintenance operations.

Benefits of Aerial Lifts:

  • Seamless Access Over Fences and Along Cable Lines
  • Immediate Deployment with No Setup or Tear Down Required
  • Exceptional Performance on Uneven Ground
  Scaffolding Aerial Lifts (15 to 23m high)

Requires set up, dismantling, climbing
< 1 Minute to reach full height
What Aerial Lift Users Should Be Aware Of

A good rule of thumb is to always treat power lines, wires, and other conductors as if they were energized, even if they are down or appear to be insulated. If you can’t avoid power lines completely, stay at least 3 meters away to avoid possible accidents. You should also avoid placing aerial lifts between power lines and other overhead hazards if possible.


When you assess the expense of purchasing the type of construction equipment used in the Philippines’ energy industry, renting is favorable due to the extremely high costs associated with owning the equipment, especially since it is often used for a short amount of time or a single task. Rely on Mayon Machinery to help you complete certain tasks, ensuring a more resilient and efficient power supply system throughout the Philippines.


Highly Resilient Retaining Wall Utilizing Giken’s Implant Landslide Prevention Method

The Philippines is exposed to a high risk of severe and frequent natural hazards due to its geographical location in Southeast Asia. Typhoons, heavy rains, earthquakes, floods, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and fires are among the natural hazards that affect the country. The Philippine government’s Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) reports that the country ranks fourth among Indonesia, India, and China in terms of landslide risk, with up to 80% of its total land area susceptible to landslides. Today, Mayon Machinery (“MMRI”) is pleased to introduce a solution to minimize the damage by taking immediate action with implant restraining walls over all phases of landslide prevention from mitigation to recovery. The Implant Wall, constructed using the “Press-in Method” invented by Giken in 1975, acts as a restraining wall of the “Guard Method” or “Rescue Method”. These methods are designed to carry out protective work before and after the occurrence of unpredictable natural disasters.

What’s Press-in Method?

The Press-in Method is one of the pile jacking methods that use a static jacking force to install piles into the ground. Its environmental impact of noise and vibration is smaller than those of conventional piling methods using drop hammers or vibratory hammers.

One of the characteristics of the Press-in Method that provides an essential difference from the other pile jacking methods is that a reaction force is secured from the previously installed piles.

Therefore, the space for piling and the cost of temporary works can be significantly reduced.

Exposition of the Solution “Implant Landslide Prevention Method”

The combination of the Implant Deterrence Piles and Implant Retaining Walls will prevent landslides caused by massive earthquakes and torrential downpours. Large preventive piles, with a maximum diameter of 2500mm, are embedded into the stable ground to hold soils and allow excessive groundwater to flow down through the pile gap. The Implant Retaining Walls act as a mass gravity structure providing stability to slopes against debris fall. Retaining walls can be over 9 meters high and support slopes by resisting lateral movement and pressure. They are pressed-in from the top of pile walls without disturbing daily life and the surrounding environment.

Methodology To Be Adopted in the Philippines

To build a strong continuous wall, called Implant Wall, in a hazardous location where there is a possibility and/or occurrence of landslides due to torrential rain, etc., the GRB system is used to significantly shorten the construction speed and reduce damage to people and property. It minimizes the working area to just the contact surface of the piles on the ground and eliminates the need for a temporary platform, even on slopes, uneven ground, and over water. If the situation changes after restoration, the wall can be removed for other purposes or moved to another location.

“Implant Wall” as a Measure for Landslides

However, the GRB system is also used in auto to press-in a PC (Precast concrete) wall structure, etc., that is resistant to high temperatures, high-pressure steam, and volcanic gas, causing a pyroclastic flow down the mountainside when a volcanic eruption occurs.

What’s GRB system?

The “GRB™ System”, which allows all machines to self-move on top of the installed piles, enables construction work to be carried out even in disaster-affected areas, slopes, and narrow sites (Fig. 1). As the influenced area of work is limited to the width of the machines, the work can be carried out without disturbing the traffic flow around the construction site.

Although landslides usually occur without warning, it is important to understand this natural hazard and create a comprehensive landslide risk mitigation framework. Utilizing Giken’s Implant Landslide Prevention Method ensures the sustainability and expansion of landslide risk reduction. The method is proven to be so efficient and applied to over 36 countries worldwide.

Benefits of Long-term Forklift Rental in the Philippines

In the bustling industrial landscape of the Philippines, businesses often face challenges when it comes to managing their forklift fleet effectively. Uncertain fleet size, existing lease contracts, short-term feasibility, frequent breakdowns, and complex contract management can impede operational efficiency and increase costs. However, these concerns can be effectively addressed through long-term forklift rental solutions. In this article, we will explore the benefits of long-term forklift rental and how it can provide an ideal solution for businesses in the Philippines.

6 Benefits of Long-Term Forklift Rental from MAYON:
1# Dramatically Reduce Forklift Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

One of the significant advantages of long-term forklift rental, particularly with maintenance included, is the reduction in the total cost of ownership (TCO). By opting for a fixed monthly rental fee that covers maintenance, businesses can accurately forecast and allocate their budgets. This eliminates unexpected repair and maintenance costs that often arise with owning or short-term renting forklifts.

2# Fixed Maintenance Cost

Maintenance costs can quickly add up, especially when forklifts experience frequent breakdowns. With long-term forklift rental agreements that include maintenance, businesses can enjoy the benefits of a fixed maintenance cost. This helps in better financial planning, reduces downtime due to unexpected repairs, and ensures that the forklifts are well-maintained and in optimal working condition.

3# Short-term Rental Flexibility

While long-term rental offers stability, it doesn’t mean businesses are locked into rigid contracts. Reputable forklift rental companies, like MAYON, provide flexible rental terms that can be tailored to specific needs.

Tips To Choose The Best Bucket For Your Compact Loaders

When it comes to choosing the best bucket for your compact loaders, there are several factors to consider. Here are some tips to help you make the right choice:

1 Consider the size:

The size of the bucket you choose will depend on the size of your compact loader and the type of work you will be doing. Larger buckets are ideal for heavy-duty tasks, while smaller buckets are better suited for lighter jobs.



For daily use with smaller compact loaders or occasional use on some of larger machines, you can’t beat the versatility of general-purpose and dirt buckets. The skid-bar design provides wear protection to the bucket bottom, backs up the cutting edge, and adds strength to the bottom of the bucket. A flat back on the bucket exterior provides a secure mount for quick-attachment systems such as Bob-Tach® system or All-Tach™. A round back inside the bucket enhances loading and cleaning out. A replaceable high-carbon steel cutting edge provides a long bucket life.

Bobcat General Purpose Bucket

The standard bucket for compact machines and a good choice for low-hour users on some larger loaders. General-purpose buckets are ideal for light-duty grading and leveling applications as well as material handling.

  • Similar to dirt bucket with a longer bottom
  • Perfect for light-duty grading, leveling, and material handling
  • Excellent cutting-edge visibility
  • Good bucket breakout force

The standard bucket on smaller compact loaders. Designed specifically for digging and moving dirt, gravel, and other loose materials. They typically have a flat bottom and straight sides that provide maximum cutting and digging power.

  • Similar to general purpose bucket, but with a shorter bottom and low back
  • Fair cutting-edge visibility
  • Excellent bucket breakout force



With more durability for your toughest jobs, nothing provides longer wear in extreme applications. It’s designed for handling heavy materials and performing digging and earthmoving tasks. Gehl C/I buckets generally have a more curved profile, while Bobcat C/I buckets tend to have a more angled profile. The design can affect the bucket’s digging and earthmoving performance and may be preferred based on personal preference or specific job requirements.


The standard for performance and strength.

  • Highest breakout forces
  • Good cutting-edge visibility
  • Shorter bottom and less capacity

These the most popular low-profile buckets are ideal for grading, leveling, carrying, loading, and other material handling.

  • Good breakout force
  • Excellent cutting-edge visibility
  • Similar to the C/I bucket, but with slightly longer bottom for better visibility and increased capacity

Designed for larger skid loaders and compact track loaders. These buckets are built even stronger than C/I and low-profile buckets. While Heavy-Duty Construction/Industrial buckets typically feature thicker steel construction, reinforced bucket bottoms, and wear-resistant cutting edges for use in demanding construction and industrial applications. Severe-Duty Construction/Industrial buckets are even more rugged and durable than heavy-duty buckets and are designed for use in extreme conditions such as demolition, quarrying, and mining.

  • More capacity than C/I or low-profile buckets
  • Double-walled top crossmember
  • Stronger mounting frame
  • Higher back and longer bottom
  • Thicker and taller side cutting edges



When choosing a fertilizer or grain bucket for a compact loader, it’s important to consider the specific agricultural materials being handled and any specific requirements for the job. For example, if handling corrosive fertilizers, a bucket with a corrosion-resistant coating may be necessary to prevent damage and prolong the bucket’s lifespan. Similarly, if handling delicate grain or feed, a bucket with a smooth interior and larger capacity may be preferable.

  • Move large volumes of granular material
  • Minimum spillage over the front edge thanks to an increased rollback feature

Gehl Snow and Light Material buckets can hold slightly more material than the Bobcat buckets due to having a slightly more curved design, which may make them more efficient for scooping and dumping materials. While the Gehl buckets may have a slight advantage in terms of capacity and durability, the Bobcat buckets may offer more versatility with their universal mounting system.

  • Ideal for handling large, low-density materials
  • Large-capacity buckets with a high-back design
  • Sizes range from 1562 to 2578 mm wide

Rock buckets are heavy-duty attachments ideal for picking up stones and large awkward debris. This kind of bucket is a “must-have” for skid steer operators in the agricultural, commercial, and landscaping industries.

  • Skeletal design collects rocks while leaving soil behind
  • Models ranging from 1549 to 2223 mm wide
2 – Choose the right material:

Buckets are available in a variety of materials such as steel, aluminum, and composite. Steel buckets are more durable and ideal for heavy-duty work, while aluminum buckets are lightweight and easier to handle.

3 – Think about the shape:

The shape of the bucket can affect its performance. A wider bucket will have a larger capacity and will be better for moving loose materials such as gravel and sand. A narrower bucket will be better for digging and excavating.

4 – Consider the teeth or cutting edge:

Some buckets come with teeth that can help you dig into hard ground or break up tough material. If you will be doing a lot of digging or excavation work, a bucket with teeth may be a good choice.

5 – Look for versatility:

Some buckets are designed to be used for multiple purposes, such as grading, leveling, digging, and grappling. If you need a bucket that can handle a variety of tasks, look for one that is versatile, for example, 4-in-1 a combination bucket.

  • Bolt-on corner cutting edges to protect the corners of your bucket; reversible.
  • Reinforced bucket bottom and clamshell improve strength and rigidity.
  • Interlocking serrated grapple edges to hold objects securely – even heavy or odd-shaped materials.
6 – Consider the price:

The cost of the bucket will depend on its size, material, and features. Choose a bucket that fits your budget but don’t compromise on quality.

By considering these factors, you can choose the best bucket for your compact loader that will meet your needs and help you get the job done efficiently. If you’re still unable to select the right bucket, please consult our team at Mayon Machinery to get the best one for your application.
