If you're an enterprising plant hire company, you'd want to be mobilising your dozers that aren't on hire right now and parking them in a yard in Newcastle - with billions being invested between Ballina and Sydney on the largest highway upgrade project in Australia's history. A booming and growing city in it's own right, there is plenty of construction opportunities for suppliers to the civil & residential construction industries and high demand for certain machines, as the projects move from establishment to finishing over the next 5 years.
Of the 92 machine categories on iSeekplant - our most popular categories are still the bulk earthworks categories such as dozer hire and excavator hire - because there are the categories we started with on the site over 5 years ago. Our most requested dozers in Newcastle, tend to be D8s, for typical bulk earthworks activities, but D6s are rising in popularity and now increasingly used in detailed earthworks tasks. We also have the most number of machines listed in these sizes. We have categorised the dozer category using the Caterpillar model sizes because this is the most commonly used vernacular amongst engineers and people from the civil construction industry.
Demand in this area of New South Wales at the moment is at a peak - with many engineers working on projects close to the Woolgoolga to Ballina Project driving machine availability down and rates up. So - if you want a great dozer to hire for an affordable rate, there might be one available in a nearby town or from an interstate supplier that might be more competitive. Give us a call and we'll find you whatever you need - for free - get back to you with rates and you make the call. So make the first call and call iSeekplant on 1300 691 912 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
