Three years ago, well known Seattle contractor City Transfer purchased their first teledipper, a 30m Kocurek unit to mount on their John Deere 470 carrier
After loading many tens of thousands of truckloads without incident or breakdowns and getting repeat custom from their clients, they have decided that one unit in the fleet is not enough, and are purchasing an extra unit of same spec, this time to mount on a Hitachi ZX470
Delivery to site and install is planned for April 2020, so watch this space for photos of its first outing digging the basement for Google Global Head Office in summer 2020
The above photos show the first unit working on a variety of projects in the greater Seattle area
The first unit of 30m teledipper from Specialist Tunnel Excavations (STE) fleet, has just finished its first weeks work on site at Sydney Central Station - working in mixed material at a depth of 11m, production was achieved of 85-90 truck & trailer combo's in a 12 hour shift - will keep you updated as the hole gets deeper !!
The second 30m will be working on the same site shortly (so the first doesn't get lonely !!)
We are pleased to be supplying a good used Hitachi teledipper to a customer in Canada - he will use a John Deere 245 for base machine and go straight to work on various utility projects in the greater Toronto area
From initial enquiry to sailing on container ship was less than 10 days, with only 10 day transit to Canadian port, this was a very quick supply

First Square Equipment have supplied a stick extension and hammer bracket to Dawson Wam, specified to take a large auger attachment. The stick was needed to overcome issues with a specific job where a vertical a wall under a ledge which needed stabilising, this required an auger to drill holes to allow grouting. Essentially the excavator was drilling holes under itself.
The picture above shows a CAT 335F zero tail swing with First Square Equipment's stick extension fitted ready to work, painted in red by the client.
The stick has modifications engineered in to absorb the torsion of the large auger attachment, and was heavily modified by FSE to suit the clients application.
The job has now been successfully completed and the client commented that "the stick worked well for us".
First Square Equipment have been provide both standard and bespoke stick extensions and long reach fronts to many differing industries.
Thanks to Lee McCourt the owner of Specialist Tunnel Excavations (STE) in Sydney Australia, for his order of two 30m teledippers
He visited the factory and inspected the finished units in person before container loading
Both units will be fitted to slide cab Liebherr excavators, and on arrival go immediately to work on the high profile Central Station site where reliability and safety are key factors - the fact that the Kocurek teledipper is seen in the market as the most reliable and safest, were key factors in STE buying decision
