New Erkat ER 1200 Rock Wheel for Specialist WA Excavation Works


--- Excavator Operator Bruce Cockburn utilising the Erkat ER 1200 rock wheel with Hitachi 33t excavator on site in Perth, WA.As one of Perth’s leading civil contractors our company prides itself on the use of quality equipment, highly experienced and innovative staff, and use of the most efficient excavation techniques. 

Over recent years Reilly Contractors have invested significantly in quality excavation machinery to suit ground conditions for civil works projects all over Perth and Western Australia. It gives our clients great peace of mind to know that our site-works equipment is not dated, is serviced meticulously and is fully covered by service level agreements to minimise any on-site downtime. In addition to this our team of excavator operators are picked specifically for their experience, qualifications and ingenuity.

Our project teams are experts in the assessment of on-site ground conditions and work pro-actively to select the very best equipment to suit each client project for continuity and efficiency of work. Reilly Contractors staff consistently aim to exceed client expectation, by delivering projects safely, on budget and ahead of programme. Our project expertise covers subdivision works including groundworks, sewerage, stormwater drainage and utilities installations. We also cover specialist projects such as pump stations and main roads works.No earth

works challenge is too great for Reilly Contractors. Our machinery and attachments can power through the toughest of ground conditions to keep projects on track. Where traditional methods of excavation and trenching prove inefficient, which may include limestone areas featuring cap rock, we utilise the industry respected Erkat ER 1200 rock wheel with one of our 33t Hitachi excavators. Use of an Erkat rock wheel achieves exceptional compressive strength, which allows us to increase our excavation rate through harder rock types, and in many cases we can also use the by-product as backfill material.  

Reilly Contractors offer hire arrangements in and around Perth and across Western Australia for excavators, which can include an Erkat ER 1200 rock wheel, tilting excavator buckets and highly skilled loaders and machine operators. Excavation using the Erkat rock wheel instead of a breaker is well suited to works where noise and vibration reduction is required, particularly in sensitive areas such as the Perth CBD. The rock wheel is also particularly suited to sensitive heritage works. Tilting excavator buckets are particularly efficient for V drains and batter works.
