REMOTE CONTROLLED MACHINERY
Our commitment to innovation led us to develop the first remote controlled excavators that were used for carrying out complex demolitions in the Port Hills Residential Red Zone.
In a world first, Protranz have created the remote controlled excavator, whose sole purpose was to minimise risk to operatives undertaking works on cliff tops or at the base of cliffs.
This technology was also used to great effect in clearing slips following the Kaikoura 2017 earthquake and in the Deans Head land clearance works. Click the photo to get further details.
5 AXLE TIPPER
Protranz Earthmoving Limited converted a concrete truck into a 5 Axle tipper to increase productivity on sites with access constraints. The 5 Axle tipper can hold the same volume as a semi articulated truck. This was a NZ first.

To be the industry leaders in all facets of the health and safety surrounding the transportation of asbestos (Land Transport Act and the Health and Safety in Employment Asbestos Regulations 1998) Protranz designed and built specialist asbestos carrying bins to minimise our clients’ legal exposure within the NZTA Chain of Responsibility and to the hazards of the transportation of asbestos.

8 X 6 HOOK TRUCK EX BRITISH ARMY

LEGGETT ROAD LIMITED
In September 2018 Protranz made the decision to purchase its own waste disposal as an attempt to decrease waste levels at public waste facilities such as Kate Valley and to streamline waste distribution to their appropriate recycling facilities.
Recyclable materials such as steel from small residential demolitions have been stockpiled onsite and transported to sims recycling, as well as utilizing storage space for potentially valuable resources to be gifted or sold to benefiting parties. Leggett Road has also provided an alternative disposal for contaminated material closer to the CBD reducing truck travel times and the resulting impact on the environment.
