Excavator applications: how they’re used

Excavation equipment has applications in a variety of industries, including construction, mining and agriculture. In residential settings, Coates excavators can be used to dig foundations, handle materials and remodel yards. In larger commercial projects, these machines are suitable for earthmoving and land clearing of worksites.

Our excavator hire safety & compliance steps

Coates aims to ensure safe working practices are followed when using our equipment. In addition to the safety features included with our scissor lifts, such as secondary guarding systems, safety rails, emergency stop buttons and tilt sensors, we provide detailed safety manuals to help you operate our equipment as safely as possible.

In order to operate a scissor lift with a maximum extended height of over 11 metres, you need to have a valid Elevating Work Platform (EWP) licence. This regulation impacts a number of diesel and electric scissor lifts in the Coates lineup. An EWP licence must be provided when renting these machines.

For more information, and to rent a scissor lift, please contact Coates today to arrange a quote.
