It is the intent of this specification to provide for the purchase, and delivery of two (2) (more or less) new and unused 2021/2022 model year Backhoe/Loader. The unit bid shall be the manufacturer's current production model that meet or exceed the following preferred technical 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 Fleet and Garage Manager of Surrey'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.

Quotations will be reviewed based upon the suitability of the Contractor’s submission in relation to the Schedule A-1 Preferred Technical Specifications.


The Contractor will deliver the vehicle(s) free and clear of all liens and encumbrances in the manner and to the destination stipulated. In the event of the Contractor’s failure to meet this condition, the Contractor will, on written notice from the City, forthwith return all monies paid by the City on account of the vehicle(s) and in addition the City may by written notice terminate this Agreement without liability, and in such event, in addition to the above, the Contractor will be liable for any and all expenses or losses incurred by the City resulting from such failure.

No other communication, whether written or oral, from any person will affect or modify the terms of this RFQ or may be relied upon by any Contractor.
