The Hyundai's and the Komatsu have a longer undercarriage with 700mn triple grouser plates which not only increases stability but reduces the ground pressure to 0.40kg/cm2. This also coupled with the fact that the machine can remain stationary while covering a wider work area further reduces environmental impact in all applications.

Obviously this has opened up job opportunities completely removed from normal hydraulic excavator applications. These include placing the excavator on a barge for dredging work in lakes and rivers. This is a more economical proposition than hiring a specialist dredge or using outdated draglines. The Longreach Excavator can achieve spectacular results cleaning creeks, rivers, channels and dam, and placing rock beaching on river banks to stop erosion.

One machine can now complete the work, which previously took more than one machine to achieve with the resultant cost savings.

State and Local Government Engineers have already taken a major interest in the machines potential for various environmental projects, and we hope this information can assist you in your works programs.

A few projects we have undertaken include Albert Park Lake, Goulburn Murray Water, Melbourne Water and Baulderstone Hornibrook Web Dock.
