With a significant amount of infill housing being carried out in many suburbs around the country and thanks to changes in building regulations in Auckland, there has been a spike in developments where units are being shoehorned onto many sites, once the old double-garage and fruit trees have been removed.
Plumbing and drainage contractors are working in awkward spots like this every day and it’s on sites like these that the latest nine-tonne Sunward SWE90UF is in its ideal environment. Sitting mid-range in the Sunward size offerings (up to 36 tonnes) available from Endraulic, the SWE90UF is powered by a four cylinder Yanmar 4TNV98C engine rated 46.2kW@2200rpm. The short-tailed SWE90UF looks totally urban-esque surrounded by the numerous open footings, with tradies busily going about their business. “One of the main reasons we decided to bring this sized-excavator into the country was exactly for jobs like this,” says Blair Sargison, Sales Manager at Endraulic Equipment.
One such company that has chosen Sunward mini excavators is Supreme Plumbing Ltd. Based out of West Auckland and servicing the entire Auckland region, the business undertakes a wide scope of work from the initial drainage works through to the finished fittings on new builds, as well as a wide range of custom work in some of the more affluent Auckland suburbs. Supreme purchased their first two-tonne machine (SWE20F) from Endraulic Equipment in 2018 and have since added a 1.8-tonne (SWE18UF) and 5.6-tonne (SWE60UF) mini excavator to the fleet. “The reason we decided to get our own mini excavators was that with our wide scope of works, we felt the need to ensure we had machines available when we needed them and to do that it was necessary to purchase,” says company owner Rob Teina.
