Reach New Highs and Lows

October 15, 2019

Are you reaching to finish your projects? It might be time to look into some new equipment and what better machine to help than a long reach excavator? 

What’s The Point? 

A long reach excavator is a form of excavator where the arm of the machine is extended in order to reach much further than a normal excavator’s arm. Some applications of the long reach include ditching, silt removal and earthmoving. 

Long reach machines are also used for dredging purposes. We have quite a few amphibious machines available if your next project will be on or near the water. 

Whether you’re working on water or on land we have what you need. 

What’s The Cost? 

That depends on what you’re looking for. If you’re in the market for a newer machine you’re going to pay for it but you get what you pay for, as they say. Machines with fewer hours worked will lead to a longer lifespan as well as fewer service calls. 

Can I Rent or Should I Buy? 

We mostly rent and sell CAT construction machinery and we specialize in long reach and amphibious excavators. We also carry other brands, such as John Deere and Komatsu. The best part about browsing our fleet is that we aren’t focused on selling you. We want what’s best for you. We will take the time to hear what you’re looking for and work to evaluate your budget so you get the biggest bang for your buck.
