With Bunbury being an important industrial, mining and army hub in Western Australia, 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 Bunbury 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 Western Australia.
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.
People used to use phone books to find suppliers of excavator hire in Bunbury before iSeekplant came around. The big important difference is that iSeekplant has more than just business contact information for each supplier in the local area. You can view every excavator in the suppliers fleet, right down to the make, model & attachments - then where the supplier is located and service region. Then hit the phones and start talking turkey. It's a far more useful tool than anything that has ever existed before it.
Don't end up in the weeds - you can call us and we'll tell you the excavator you need and who to hire it from, then we'll get you multiple quotes to guarantee you get the right price. Call iSeekplant today and have a yarn to our plant experts - they'll point you in the right direction around Bunbury.

The Federal and Western Australian Governments have shortlisted three consortia to submit detailed design and construction proposals for the rollout of Smart Freeways technology along the Mitchell Freeway southbound. The three consortia shortlisted are: CPB, GHD, UGL and SAGE Intelligent Freeways Alliance (NRW, Lendlease Services, WSP) SmartWays Alliance (BMD, Ventia, Arup) This stage of the project will deliver coordinated ramp signals at seven freeway entry ramps from Reid Highway to Vincent Street, ensuring vehicles enter the freeway safely and efficiently while avoiding stop-start conditions at known pinch points.Closer to the city, Smart Freeway infrastructure will be installed with lane use management technology to display open and closed traffic lanes for incident management, unlocking additional freeway capacity and allowing traffic to be managed in real-time.Variable speed limits will improve traffic flow and safety by making adjustments based on traffic volumes and conditions, while dynamic message signs over the freeway lanes will display information about the road conditions ahead.The project will also install other smart technology such as CCTV, Vehicle Detectors, Automatic Incident Detection, and Stopped Vehicle Detection at emergency stopping bays, as well as upgrade the existing Traffic Control Systems Network to the future-proof smart operation of the road network.Smart Freeway technology is also being delivered as part of the Mitchell Freeway Southbound Upgrade: Hodges to Hepburn project, with nine entry ramps from Hester Avenue to Warwick Road to receive coordinated ramp signals.Combined, the upgrade and roll out of Smart Freeways on Mitchell Freeway southbound will result in average travel time savings of up to seven minutes from Hodges Drive to Vincent Street for over 28,000 vehicles that use this section of the freeway during the morning peak period.More than 1,000 direct and indirect jobs will be supported during the life of the project.The $140 million Smart Freeway Mitchell Southbound program is jointly funded on a 50:50 basis by the Federal and Western Australian governments.Federal Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, said, “The Mitchell Freeway upgrades are part of the Australian Government’s multibillion-dollar investment in infrastructure in Perth that is creating jobs and economic stimulus while improving critical transport networks.“This $140 million Smart Freeway program will address congestion and bottlenecks to improve journey reliability and provide congestion relief to more than 50,000 southbound motorists each day.“As Perth continues to develop and grow, this innovative technology is the most efficient solution to manage the resulting congestion without continually widening the road – meaning we will get drivers home sooner and safer with the least disruption to communities in the area.”WA Transport Minister, Rita Saffioti, “The Smart Freeways technology proved popular along the Kwinana Freeway, with morning drivers saving up to ten minutes on their daily commute.“We’re now rolling this technology out along the Mitchell Freeway Southbound, which when complete, will save 28,000 drivers up to seven minutes on their daily morning commute.“This forms part of a suite of transport improvements for our rapidly growing northern suburbs, enabling more jobs for local workers and businesses, with 1,000 direct and indirect jobs expected to be created over the life of the Smart Freeway Mitchell southbound projects.“Work is also underway on other major northern suburbs projects including the Mitchell Freeway Extension, widening the Mitchell Freeway from Hodges Drive to Hepburn Avenue and the long awaited Yanchep Rail Extension.”Read more here
