Can anyone recommend a good bobcat operator?

By Brem - 25 October 2010 10

Hi All,

I am going to do some extensive levelling of my block and need some pole holes dug as well.

Having had the experience of some terrible bobcat operators in the past I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good operator to me?

Thanks

What’s Your opinion?

About 8 years ago I used AAA Bobcat & Truck Hire because they were first in the yellow pages. A bloke called Jason did a great job. He had a good eye and knew when to stop – my complicated system of levels and string was way out and he could tell just by looking at it! Phone 62350560.

A couple of months ago a bloke called Craig came and did some excavating and bobcatting stuff at our place. We asked him to make it kind of round and nice and to stop when he thought it looked about right. That’s what he did and it looks great, so I think he’s got good taste (which might not be your taste but anyway). Phone 0428 751 023.

Just one piece of advice – if you’ve got a reasonable amount of dirt to get rid of, make sure you get an operator with a decent sized truck. When I had some of the back yard levelled a while back, the truck was a 2-tonner (or something like that), and the only place to dump clean fill in Canberra was near Pialligo…from my place, that was an hour round trip, and it’s all on the clock. You’ll save money by getting someone with a larger truck, who has to make fewer trips to offload.

Cost to do what? Quotes are usually for a job, not by the hour, and depend on how much of what kind fo stuff you need shifted / disposed of. Filling the truck with light but bulky and free-to-dump green waste isn’t going to be anything like shifting old chunks of concrete or builders rubble.

I’ve tried driving a bobcat, and while the basic principles in moving ’round and shifting dirt are doable, I’m all the more impressed with what a good operator can do.

Good luck in your search.
