Earthmoving Contractors Queensland

Contract Earthmoving

Huntlys Heavy Equipment have been involved in numerous civil projects in both the Rockhampton region and Central Queensland.

Huntlys Heavy Equipment have a wide range of equipment and qualified operators readily available to perform earthmoving scope of works. With an average of 15 employees in both full time and casual roles we have the ability to easily upscale or downscale on any project in a reasonably short period of time, this allows us greater flexibility to work with our customers and reduce costs.

We have a close relationship with a number of other businesses including plant hire companies and other earthmoving companies (competitors) which allows us access to additional plant and qualified workers if required. We have worked successfully with these businesses on numerous occasions in the past when we required additional resources on a tight deadline.
