Loaders Wanganui

Services and Equipment

We have broad range of heavy equipment and plant available to get your project done right. We also have a number of specialist services on offer that make us the go-to company for some of the trickier works that cannot be completed by other firms. Take a look below at some of the things we have on offer and be sure to contact us if you require further information.


We have an 8 wheeler hydroexcavation unit. It is a self contained unit offering traffic management signage. It has a 100mm diameter suction hose, water blaster rating of 3000psi 21 litres per minute, spoil tank volume of 4m3.

Material Resources

We have our own shellrock quarry located 30km north west of Wanganui inland from Maxwell. We currently produce large uncrushed rock. We also utilise several small quarries around the district from time to time.

Metal Crushing

We have a mobile crushing plant and can produce metal down to AP40.

Kerbing Machine

We have had our kerbing machine since 2010 and in that short amount of time have produced excellent results. We have several different moulds including NZTA and local council approved.

Paving Installation

Loaders offers paving installation. We can undertake both domestic and commercial paving. Our certified paving installer has over 15 years experience and has worked all over the north island. We are also an approved installer for the Whanganui District Council.

Pipe Bursting

The pipe burster is used in Christchurch for bursting sewer laterals. We have found it a very valuable piece of equipment as it provides a very efficient and simple solution.

Temporary Traffic Management

Temporary traffic management is a critical element to consider when working on or near roads. We have a dedicated traffic management truck kitted out with a full range of traffic management signage and cones. Mounted on the rear of the truck is a remotely operated directional arrow and a remotely operated light board. We also have a number of STMS and TC qualified staff.


We own two tractor units – a 2014 Kenworth and a 2006 Hino 700 series. We have 3 transporting trailers; one 3 rows of 4 that can cart up to 28 tonne, one 3 rows of 4 low loader, widener and can cart up to 28 tonne, and one 3 rows of 8 low loader, widener that can cart up to 42 tonne. The bigger trailer has a clip on 4th axle to take its carting load up to 58 tonne if required. We also have 3 BESS accredited drivers, six class 2 pilots and two class 1 pilots.

Trimble 3D GPS System

In 2010 we purchased a Trimble GPS system, rover and 120M CAT grader complete with Trimble Business Centre and CAT 3D accugrade software. This is a state of the art system allowing never before seen accuracy and speed in road construction. Because the accugrade system is driven from the computer in the grader there is no need for lift pegs or stringing. The plan is simply loaded into the computer which is connected to the blade hydraulics and the machine almost does it itself. The rover gives us a very powerful tool and can be used for multiple set out and measurement functions.
