At Base we operate and own 10 excavators ranging from 1.8 Tonne to 35 Tonne machines to undertake the various jobs we undertake.

All our excavators are Komatsu a trusted brand we have been associated since our conception in 2007. 

Our excavators are serviced by our internal mechanic and the Komatsu field service team. To ensure we have the best gear we review and replace our machines regularly.

Included in our fleet is the Hybrid 21 Tonne Excavator a groundbreaking Komatsu excavator which is unrivalled in fuel efficiency and helping with our commitment to the environment. One of our three 20 Tonne excavators is fitted with GPS – the way of the future for cut and fill excavation. We are currently looking to install another GPS unit in a second excavator.  As well as the excavators we have a number of attachments used to make our machines multipurpose these include rock breakers, compacting heads, trenching buckets, mulching heads and augers.
