Narrung Road, Meningie Upgrade

Here’s a shout out to the team that kept the rubble moving over a big long weekend 👏

Cheers to Scotty, JB and Swanny for carting material ex Chapman’s Pit, so that we are ready for the Narrung Road upgrade later this month 🙌

And, yep that’s water in the Pit @ Chapman’s ⛈

Ag Lime Now Available

During the winter we have been perfecting the production of our new product Coorong Lime, an agricultural lime, made from triple crushed limestone and sieved for consistent spreading product quality.

With lime spreading season just around the corner, now is a good time to talk with us direct, or with our local Agents Platinum Ag – Coorong about how we can add value to your crop next year through the application of agricultural lime.

Dust monitoring at Chapmans Pit

It’s been a big short week with lots happening right across the team.

Up at Chapman’s, with the pit in full production, we have been testing the noise + dust exposure levels to our team.

Brad Jeffery and Jackson Bill Kluske were looking the goods, modelling the test units

Special Projects

Meningie Football Club

At Swan Earthmovers, we are all proud supporters of the Meningie Football Club. 

But none are prouder supporters than Bob + Brad who organised a refresh of the track back in August prior to the last home game for the season.

The boys demonstrated just how versatile our Belly Dumpers are when they perfectly placed new product on the track.

Bob then made easy work of the grading job and delivered a silky smooth finish.

Parkin Hall Pit, Coomandook

During November, the boys set up our Kerley Impact Closed Circuit – featuring our favourite impact crusher, the Metso Lokotrak, at Parkin Hall Road, Coomandook.
The Kerley Impact Circuit involves five of our machines L-R: the Ezystak TR8048 Conveyor, the Metso Impact Crusher (rear of image), the McCloskey R155 Screener, the Cat 336D Excavator, and the Komatsu PC450LC Excavator. 
Destined for re-sheeting on Council Roads, the Parkin Hall Pit at Coomandook is producing consistent PM3-40MM.

Willoway Farming – Mt Charles, Kingston SE

Back in September, the boys started our spring crushing program at Willoway Farming.
This photo, taken from the air was when the pit was about approximately 4-5 weeks old – look closely and you’ll see Bob amongst the piles of freshly crushed rock.

Trackmaking at Crawford’s

Throwback to August, Bob and the boys were busy at Crawford’s out at Field, constructing a new 1.6 kilometre farm track.

Using local rubble, a great outcome was attained, albeit in wet and sticky conditions. Images below.

New yards and tracks at Courtlands and Condooroo

Courtlands, east of Meningie, is owned by Gavin and David Neumann of Kangarilla.

During September, 400T of 40mm road base was used for the track into the cattle yards, with the road-building being carried out by Glen Jackson of GTJ Earthmovers in Meningie.

Cattle yards on sister-farm ‘Condooroo’, took 550T for upgrading of a track, as well as the base for shiny new cattle yards – a great job again – GTJ Earthmovers, Meningie.

Trackmaking at Jeffield

Back in late August, Bob got busy over at Jeffield.  Using product from an adjoining paddock, Bob laid the foundations for perhaps the smoothest track this winter.

Bob utilised our Excavator, 40T Dump Truck and Grader on this new 1.5km track and roundabout.  Being an expert grader operator, Bob developed a finish so smooth, that you could play 8-ball on it…seriously!!

Owner of ‘Jeffield’, Ben Crawford from Kangarilla, with help from his Uncle, Craig Crawford, provided support with their Telehandler, as part of the earthworks.
