About Us

Rotorzone is a New Zealand based research & development company specializing in rotary powered initiatives designed by Chris Wade.

The products in the following pages have been developed to meet a specific customer need that is not met by the current market offerings.

We have designed for robustness – a utility vehicle package for semi commercial applications located in often remote areas.

These applications – borne out of direct customer requests – can be used for aerial crop spraying, mustering, town to town courier, transport of staff and cargo into mines, line and coastal surveillance and any other service that requires a low operational cost alternative.
