Trencher Hire and Services

As a leader in the installation of pipeline, cable, drainage and other utilities / infrastructure, Cape has one of the largest fleets of heavy duty trenching equipment across Australia.

Our extensive experience in the mining and civil construction industries has given us the skills and knowledge to deliver flexible, reliable and cost effective alternatives to traditional methods of trenching.

Our trenching machines range from the Vermeer T1055 Commander 3 to the Trencor 1260 HDE; they outperform hydraulic excavators, delivering a profile cut through hard rock, clay or sand.

The benefits of using one of Cape’s trenchers for your project include:

  • Greater trench depth and width accuracy;
  • Trenches can be opened faster when you compare it to an excavator;
  • Spoil removal via either ground level exit or an above ground conveyor belt system to the rear of the unit
  • Being able to reuse the excavated material, and
  • A safer trench edge free from jagged rock edge.

Cape’s fleet has the capacity to cut trenches from 200mm to 1080mm wide and up to depths of 6500mm in a single pass. And of course, as you would expect, all of Cape’s trenchers are mine site compliant, quality assured and maintained in accordance with mining and civil standards of Australia.

Cape prides itself on being able to offer the following models of trenching machines for hire:

  • Astec 560
  • Vermeer T755
  • Vermeer T955 III
  • Vermeer T1055 III
  • Trencor 1260 HD

We utilise our Terrain Leveler surface extraction equipment to offer precision rock excavation whilst managing noise level, vibration and air quality. Adaptable to a variety of applications including, surface mining, road maintenance and site leveling the Terrain Leveler ensures less reliance on rock breakers, consistently sized spoil and faster excavation rates.
