Specialist Equipment

EWP (Bucket) Trucks

These trucks are used in our operations of power line construction and maintenance. They can also be hired by the hour, or on project basis with one of our experienced operators. NT Electrical Group has trained competent certified EWP (HIGH RISK WORK) operators in accordance with WHS regulatory requirements. A Job Safety Analysis (JSA) is undertaken prior to the commencement of all EWP work.

Crane/Borer Truck & Pole Trailer

Designed and built specifically for the power distribution industry. NT Electrical Group crane/borer truck and pole trailer are invaluable assets to the Group. The truck (with its mounted crane/ borer) can park on the roadway or manoeuvre into position on rough terrain. The crane borer is able to bore holes of varying sizes. and the Pole trailer is also available for transporting poles to the work site.

With a Crane Borer, NT Electrical Group can bore a hole and dump the earth around the hole, away from the hole, or lift onto a truck for removal if required.

This allows easy access to work around the hole. Following the rag-bolt instalment we can return and dress & lift light poles into place. NT Electrical Group can also replace light poles and towers as required.

8 Tonne Excavator with Trailer and Tipper Truck

The Kubota 8 Tonne excavator has been designed to be able to manoeuvre and excavate in tight spaces. This excavator is fitted with rubber tracks ensuring minimal environmental damage when moving, while also allowing the excavator to travel on roads and driveways, etc.

The excavator has a number of attachments such as a hammer and various sized buckets. When used in combination with our 5 tonne tipper truck to remove all the spoil, it allows NT Electrical Group to undertake and complete a variety of projects.

Backhoes

NT Electrical Group has two John Deere Backhoes — including the latest SK 315 model — for those situations where it is impracticable to use an excavator.

The backhoes can be employed in those extra-tight spots, working next to walls, buildings and more (by offsetting their booms), providing NT Electrical Group with a complete range of spoil removal and trenching machinery. Through a combination of attachments for boring pole holes; compaction wheels; and a variety of buckets and widths, NT Electrical Group is able to undertake all of their client's trenching requirements.

Dingo Trencher

The Dingo trenching system easily outperforms all pedestrian trenchers. Its hydraulic system ensures power is transferred to the digging chain. Combine this with the correct number of cutting teeth and the correct chain speed, and you will have the best possible cut. The Dingo Trencher gives the operator the ability to see what they are doing at all times, enabling visibility and manoeuvrability.

Scissor Lift

NT Electrical Group has both electric and rough terrain scissor lifts offering unmatched performance and versatility - boosting work site productivity. Our Genie® electric scissor lifts are exceptionally mobile, letting us manoeuvre in tight worksites. while allowing maximum workspace for larger loads and more workers. The NT Electrical Group 4 WD rough terrain scissor lifts also enhances productivity by providing exceptional traction, speed and grade-ability. The perfect machines for big outdoor jobs where platform workspace is critical.

Trailer Mounted Cable Winch

NT Electrical Group have two trailer mounted cable winches, which both provide real time monitoring and readout of distance, time and pull tension. The distance, time and line pull tension information is displayed in real time, recorded and can be transferred onto a memory device. The recorded data can then be exported into Excel to produce a wide variety of statistical information, graphs and reports of the job being undertaken.

The technology involved allows NT Electrical Group to not only monitor and produce accurate reports on a cable pull, but it also ensures that vitally important specifications such as the cable manufacturers cable tension limits are never exceeded during a cable pull.
