Matthew Cogar and Jason Lentz became the first non New Zealand or Australian pair to win the 600mm Double Handed Sawing World Title while using a Tuatahi Racing Saw.
Kerry Mahuika and Jason Wynyard won the 375mm Jack and Jill Sawing Championship using a Tuatahi Racing saw and in the process set a new world record.
Erin Lavoie won the 300mm Ladies Single Handed Sawing Championship using a Tuatahi Racing Saw.
Glen Gillam won both the 375mm Underhand World Title and the 375mm Standing Block World Title, a feat not achieved since 2002. In both of these events Glen used a Tuatahi Kingi Racing Axe.
Tuatahi also sponsored the Junior Development Program at the Royal Show.
