Soil removal for tight access excavation
As professional excavators, you understand a big part of the process is the removal of soil which is time consuming, expensive and hard work.
Adding to this are sites becoming more difficult to access as property development evolves to meet the rising population and housing demand. Gone are the days where site access was easy and housing blocks were spacious. Houses are being tightly compacted into smaller blocks making it more difficult for builders to access the backyard.
As Brian Holloway from Brian’s Tight Access excavations said, “Space between houses used to be 1200mm but now access is limited to only 800m. …making it even more difficult to remove the soil in a fast and efficient manner”.
So, what are the options?
You could spend loads of time and money having guys wheelbarrow the soil day or you could or invest in a machine that can help you move soil more efficiently which is precisely what Brian did.
Many years ago Brian purchased his first Cormidi mini Dumper from Makinex.
At just 700mm wide, It’s a perfect machine for tight access work with a tipping point of 1.45m. This enables you to tip straight into skip bins, utes and 3 to 5 tonne trucks.
Because of his investment into Cormidi, Brian has developed a reputation for himself as a cost-effective specialist in excavating within tight access residential properties saving time and money which has created many happy customers along the way.
“One of our dumpers is 1000mm so we invested in two Cormidi 60’s, which are only 700mm wide. It’s an essential asset for us as the blocks are getting smaller, and some even have two houses on only 450sqm.” Every millimetre is precious when maneuvering between houses, making the Cormidi Dumpers a real asset to Brian’s business.
Stuart and Rob will be at Diesel Dirt and Turf this year showcasing the Cormidi range of dumpers so come and have look! They will be at Stand 1A and will have some fun things to keep the kids busy while you talk shop!
