Rock Saw

When it comes to rock sawing, our state of the art equipment means we can deliver clean cut ducts for power, water, telecommunication and irrigation systems, every time.

Our team are highly trained in rock sawing procedures, and understand and work to industry best practice codes.

In starting on a project, the team will evaluate the land, duct requirements and land gradient, before setting out to cut through the rock, leaving a crevice 125mm wide and 900mm deep.

Rock sawing is useful in installing water pipes, sewage and stormwater mains, cables for data, communications, fibre optic internet and power industries. We can work on a wide range of terrains and gradients. The Don Griffiths techniques are cost effective, high quality and demonstrate industry thought leadership.

The system works by adding an excavator to a carriage, making it movable and useful for excavating a rail-side

Drainage Under

Orchard Vines

We have a uniquely designed under-vine drainage excavator. This machine is laser operated and works remotely.

We have used this on a range of orchards and vineyards to easily excavate new drainage.

We also have a more time efficient option for excavation prior to planting if required.
