Bulk excavation excavators at a slurry pit construction site in Devon

The construction of a tunnel at a large earthmoving job on the South West coast

We own a comprehensive range of modern machinery and attachments that are available for hire when not being utilised on contract work. We use our extensive workshop to service and maintain all our equipment and to match machines with specific attachments as required. This enables us to undertake a multitude of projects for individual clients, civil engineering companies, local authorities and conservation organisations.

As we often work in environmentally sensitive areas we have taken steps to safeguard the environment by using biodegradable hydraulic oil in our excavators. In the unlikely event of an oil spill this biodegradable oil is degraded by naturally occurring bacteria, thus protecting land and water courses from pollution.

By offering a variety of specialist services and working closely with our clients and the environment we can tailor a package that meets all requirements and exceeds expectations.
