What exactly is earthmoving?

Earthmoving Plant Operators operate plant to excavate earth, ore and rock, break up pavement, road, rock and obstructions, move and load earth, rock and debris, and level, smooth and compact surfaces in construction and other projects.

Why would I need an excavator?

It is used for digging trenches, holes, and foundations. It consists of an operator cabin, undercarriage, boom, stick, and bucket. The operator cabin, popularly known as the house, sits on top of the undercarriage with tracks or wheels. We have several types of excavators available.

What safety procedures do you have in place?

We adhere to all safety regulations and standards. Some of these include singposts at danger areas, reflective and protective gear for each member of our team, regulart maintenance of all machinery, and more.

What is your service area?

We mostly undertake projects in the Western and Southern Cape.

What kind of projects involve earthmoving?

Any kind of operation where the ground needs to be altered or moved is going to require earthmoving equipment. It is common to see them on construction, mining and civil works sites, but they are also used for a wide range of other applications. For example, earthmoving equipment is essential in emergency situations. They are used to create fire break lines and trenches to rapidly dredge waterways or create new drainage in flooding situations and they are instrumental in the cleanup from natural disasters.
