With Townsville being an important industrial, mining and army hub in Queensland, there are many high quality suppliers of machinery based locally with large fleets and competent operators. You can get hold of an excavator on hire from the smaller mini-excavators to large mine-spec hundred tonners. There is plenty of choice.
A lack of investment into the local area in Townsville has meant there are plenty of machines available at competitive rates, and you could likely get your excavation project or earthworks job done more affordably than you could in other places in Queensland.
Suppliers in the area have skills in mining earthmoving, civil infrastructure and residential - and would jump at the chance to have you as a new customer.
