Specialised Solutions To Complicated Site Problems

Our vegetation mulching services are accomplished with the use of the following equipment.

Spider Excavator fitted with a forest mower. Clearing a power line easement in the Blue Mountains NSW.

Menzi Muck 4x4 All Terrain Excavator

Spider Contracting was the first company to import a new Menzi Muck all terrain excavator into Australia in 2003. These world class excavators are developed and manufactured in Switzerland.

This excavator is able to access areas where most conventional excavators are unable to go.

Fitted with a tilt-rotator means each attachment can rotate 360 º continuously, and tilt by 40º each way side to side. Each “leg” of the excavator is individually capable of adjusting up and down by 1.2m, and the legs can extend sideways so that the total width of the wheels can be up to 5m for stability and difficult access in uneven and rocky sites. The excavator boom has a reach of 7meters. We have the engine and hydraulic horsepower to match a normal 20 tonne excavator for mowing. 
With a variety of mulching attachments, we can mulch vegetation from grass to trees up to 20cm diameter. 
Using the grab attachment, we are able to take down trees or parts thereof up to 1 tonne in weight, in a controlled manner, as well as easily lifting and moving material to be processed into mulch. 
The sieve bucket is ideal for removal of water weeds and other work in water.

Words From Our Happy Customers

“We are writing in relation to the services provided to our company by yourselves. You have been providing Spider Excavation Works and Tree Clearing for us on our major contracts since 2009. We gladly recommend other companies utilise you for the services they currently provided to us.”

Scott Galvin, NSW Contract Manager
GLG GreenLife Group

“I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Spider Contracting to anyone considering underscrubbing or fire-hazard-reducing their property. Phil and his special machine did a first class job at our property in a relatively short time and with much consideration for the already landscaped sections. It should now be easier for us to maintain the northeastern section of our property and keep it as an effective barrier to an approaching fire. However, if we do become delinquent in our maintenance, we will certainly call on you again for another clean-up. We wish you much success with your business.”

“I have used Phil Heaton from Spider Contracting twice now to do substantial fire preventative clearing of my property.

On both occasions I couldn’t believe the difference one day could make in the overall look of my property, I am now feeling far less anxious about the upcoming hot summer weather and the fire risk to my property and business”
