Dobmac News

Covid-19 Update

Whilst interstate and overseas travel has ceased due to Government Covid-19 restrictions, the Dobmac team remains committed to its customers.  Our spare parts department is open and able to freight parts as usual as well as our service technicians only a call away. 

We do ask that where possible, customers phone ahead, follow hand hygiene upon entering the front door as well as maintaining social distancing during the visit.

We hope our customers and their families stay safe during this time and can't wait to catch up on the other side.

NSW Drought Assistance

Dobmac is so proud to be partnering with the Lions Club of Ulverstone, sponsoring animal feed for farmers in drought-stricken NSW, who are really doing it tough. Several trucks will soon be leaving Tasmania bound for Hillston, providing much needed practical assistance. If you would like to donate, contact Dobmac or the Ulverstone Lions Club ASAP!
