One of the biggest challenges in construction and in design is how equipment, especially the type of equipment performing initial and succeeding excavations will be able to penetrate project sites with very few or narrow passageways. This is a growing concern for contractors and engineers alike, since the growing population, especially in urban areas, has allowed land and building owners to construct extensions and improvements within their perimeter; therefore, making worksite more tight accessible.
Structures that are located inwards or rather in the middlemost part of the city block or street have the difficult test of going through a lot of obstacles before the commencement of a construction project becomes possible. Smaller, compact and equally efficient is the answer. That is where equipment such as mini-excavators and mini-dumpers come into play.
Cormidi mini-tracked dumpers
Makinex has been the exclusive distributor of the market-leading Italian-manufactured Cormidi mini-tracked dumpers for over 14 years now.
Makinex understands you need a small compact dumper that allows you to access narrow and tight work sites, and that being able to manoeuvre on rough terrain makes your job easier and faster, and ultimately allows you to give a better service to your customers.
Phil Gredig from Intelligent Construction Solutions and his sons use machinery that adds value to their business and allows them to quote on jobs other builders would have to pass on due to hard working and access conditions.
Their most recent job in Beecroft Sydney has a small access point with a 20-degree ramp to the worksite. With 400 tonnes of bricks to move, working without their Cormidi 50 named “Sampson” would be almost impossible.
Phil explained that “Sampson” has now become an integral member of the team, allowing them to move 8 tonnes per hour.
“Intelligent Construction Solutions couldn’t function as a business without the Cormidi 50. It is the most valuable piece of equipment they have and is used on 99 per cent of jobs.”
says Phil Gredig from Intelligent Construction Solutions.
All Cormidi Dumpers are hydrostatic, offering a low cost of ownership for customers, meaning no belts, chains or pulleys to repair.
Makinex stocks a complete range from 400kg to 1200kg in high or low tip and petrol or diesel versions.
