With equipment ranging from skid steers through to large mining excavators, we have the capability to meet all your earthmoving needs.
While we specialise in dry hire (without operator), we also have a team of highly skilled operators available for all our equipment on a wet hire basis.
We have a full range of attachments for our Excavators, including Rockbreakers, Grabs, Shears, Pulverisers, Augers, Compaction Plates and Posthole Diggers. All equipment in the Markwell Plant Hire Fleet is maintained to the highest standards of safety and performance using our own, in house service team. This assures you of maximum productivity and minimal downtime on your projects, and in the event of a breakdown, we can usually provide a replacement machine in minimum time.
Hiring equipment for your earthmoving and civil construction needs from Markwell Plant Hire makes good business sense. All our equipment is available for hire on a short term, or long-term basis. We complete all repair and maintenance requirements, thus freeing you from the headaches of owning equipment and allowing your valuable time to concentrate on the strengths of your business.
Constant attention to preventative maintenance is a key element of our business. All operators are instructed in pre-start and shutdown checks to ensure equipment is in optimum condition and safe to operate. Again, training is an important element of our workshop operations, with specialised equipment training provided by dealer training personnel.
Our maintenance facilities include an 800sqm fully equipped workshop, capable of carrying out all types of repairs, and mobile service vehicles are available for field repairs and maintenance.
Superior Safety Standards
All Markwell Group equipment is carefully checked before being delivered to a customer to ensure it is in a safe operating condition and meets all statutory safety requirements.
On delivery of a dry hire machine to a site, we provide a full machine induction and additional training for operators who may be unfamiliar with the type or model supplied.
All Markwell Group employees, whether they are maintenance crews, operators or truck drivers undergo full safety inductions. Our in-house documentation includes defect-reporting procedures, while meeting all statutory reporting requirements such as a logbook completion and accident notification.
Safety is of paramount importance to our business and we conduct a full review of all accidents and incidents as part of our aim to constantly improve safety standards.
While a large part of our plant hire is on a dry hire basis, fully experienced operators are available if required.
As part of our on-going commitment to employing the most competent staff at Markwell Plant Hire, our in-house quality system includes instructions on staff selection and on-going training with induction, safety and systems operating procedures in place. In addition, job-specific induction procedures are in place to meet the requirements of individual projects. As a result of these procedures, only fully trained operators are sent to your projects.
