Working on a sizeable subdivision park project for Mckenzie and Parma, Lintonbon Civil's operator Jesse is just the right person with the right machine for the job.

Moving a lot of sticky peat in what was once an old swamp in Takanini for a new park project for the booming housing development going on in the area. Although a construction site in its early stages, the water reticulation is well underway, and the job of shaping and creating the park is what Lintonbon Civil is there to help complete.


Jesse mentions that one of the key challenges of this site is the sticky nature of peat that resembles a thick clay. A competent Wide Bucket that enables easy unloading is a must, and with close to 10, 18-tonne trucks to load between the two diggers on-site, it's imperative to get it done quickly.

With the trucks on their way and the return trip taking nearly 2 hours thanks to Auckland's infamous traffic, Jesse gets back to developing the shape and contour of the park's future banks. With a fully synced GPS grading system tied into the A2 Twin Ram Coupler and Wide Bucket, work can be carried out to spec with millimetre precision, often what's demanded on these sites.

Having used Attach2 quick couplers since they first came to market Jesse comments on the improvements he's seen in them as the man behind the controls. In particular features like a quicker and simpler coupling and decoupling process, lower profile and a place for GPS tilt sensors to be mounted for precision earthworks.

"So, all in all an improvement since the first time I tried them and that [coupler] I can't fault it whatsoever. It does me good and an all-around good job." – Jesse Nicholls, Lintonbon Civil
