What we do


Narrabri Plant Hire fleet is now made up of 3 x  637 Caterpillar scrapers and 1 x 631 Caterpillar Scraper. We are a local business based in Narrabri and operating in both NSW and Qld. We have over 25 years behind-the-wheel experience and are highly specialised in the agricultural, mining, dairying and natural gas industries. Whether delivering landmark projects or providing specialised services, we are client focused, experienced, highly skilled and dependable.

Our experience and “can do” culture ensures we are able to adapt to individual client requirements, market changes and industry cycles. Our approach is always tailored to the needs of our clients with experience and expertise they can rely on. From 250,000 cubic metres of dirt moved at Bankstown Airport to one million cubic metres required to construct a cotton farm reservoir, we have the right people, the necessary skills and we always deliver.

During 2010, we sub-contracted to Champion Plant Hire Pty Ltd at the BMA-owned Peak Downs Mine, Goonyella-Riverside and Saraji Mine near Moranbah, Qld and the Jilenbar Resources-owned mine at Lake Vermont near Dysart, Qld. We have previously sub-contracted to major contractors, for example, Leighton Contractors and Thiess.

Safety is our number one priority. We vigorously protect the safety and well-being of our workers. We have never had a claim under the OH&S laws and actively participate to improve the safety of our workers.
