Right Tool for the Job

A particular challenge of wilderness projects is "tooling up". It's one thing to rent or hire an excavator in town, but quite another to mobilize one to the top of a remote mountain. Our vast collection of powerful tooling is designed for maximum effectiveness while being easy to transport.

One instance is our fleet of proprietary flyable excavators that can be delivered by helicopter, operate in difficult or constricted terrain, and out-dig ten men with shovels. This mechanical advantage is not only safer, it protects your bottom line. Furthermore, all of our tools and equipment are thoroughly and meticulously maintained, ensuring you don't have a defunct tool or piece of equipment show up at your project site.
