EXCAVATION_14Bulk Excavation

A range of various sized excavators used on this site here for excavation of dirt. This step site required the machines to pass up material numerous times carrying up to the load out area.

Location: Newport.


Rocky Terrain
Have rocky or difficult ground? We have a variety of Machine Attachments for even the toughest ground. This image shows our 27 tonne excavator with the XR30 Xcentric Ripper preparing the site for development of unit blocks. The Xcentric Ripper is a great tool for this type of rock breaking as it is more productive, quieter which means less time required on site.

Location: Elanora Heights


EXCAVATION_201Hard Rock Removal

A 6.0 tonne excavator and hammer attachment was used in this project with very minimal vibration breaking up hard rock, leaving a clean rock face to prepare the site for builders.


Our equipment including the Xcentric Ripper is gaining popularity with councils for roadworks and trenching due to high productivity and very minimal noise and vibration which is great for heritage listed properties or noise restricted areas. It is seen here widening a dangerous curve in a road on the Central Coast of NSW.

Location: Gosford
