SPECIFICATIONS OF GOODS AND SCOPE OF SERVICES
It is the intent of this specification to provide for the purchase, and delivery of one (1) or more new and unused 2023 model year Backhoe/Loader. The unit quoted shall be the manufacturer's current production model that meets or exceeds the following minimum specifications. Only a standard production machine may be bid on these specifications and a supplier will not be permitted to modify his standard production unit in order to meet these specifications.
The City’s requirements are outlined in Schedule A-1 – Preferred Technical Specifications.
Quotations will be accepted for consideration on any make or model that is equal or superior to the machine specified. Decisions of equivalency will be at the sole interpretation of the City's Engineering Department. A blanket statement that equipment proposed will meet all requirements will not be sufficient to establish equivalence. Original manufacturer's brochures of the proposed unit are to be submitted with the Quotation.
Contractor must be prepared to demonstrate a unit similar to the one proposed, if requested.
In addition to the supply and delivery of one (1) new and unused Backhoe/Loader, the Contractor will provide:
• Provision of a dealer warranty service and replacement parts at no cost to the City at a dealer preferably in the Surrey area; and
• Provision of post-delivery services and parts availability at a dealer, preferably in the Surrey Area
