Earthmoving Events, Earthmoving News


The most pioneering attachments will be on show at ACE EXPO between 12 – 14 November 2015 at Melbourne Showgrounds. With over 100 exhibitors showcasing the most innovative products the industry has to offer, there is no better time then now to start planning your visit to Australia’s premier expo for the civil contracting and earthmoving industries.

Many exhibitors will be launching and showcasing new and innovative solutions including ShoulderMaster, a Victorian first, which has been commended by Local and State Government representatives and Trenchers and Earth Drills by Auger Torque, one of the major attachment manufacturers in Australia and around the globe.

The ShoulderMaster ACE’s it

Receiving a Special Commendation for Innovation Award by IPWEA, the ShoulderMaster is set to revolutionise the way roads in Australia are repaired and guarantees to be the quickest and most cost effective solution to road repair. Designed and developed by NSW civil construction company Stabilcorp, the ShoulderMaster is the latest innovative answer for local government and contractors when it comes to road maintenance for less outlay.

ShoulderMaster is easily attached to a skid steer loader within minutes and offers hydraulic tilt functions. Peta Pinson, Managing Director, explains “ShoulderMaster allows for construction materials to be placed on grades ranging from 0% to +/- 5%. The attachment can lay either gravel or asphalt materials and has a heated screed plate specifically for asphalt use. The ShoulderMaster can lay widths between 0.5m up to 1.5m in one pass and is remotely controlled outside of the skid steer, giving the worker on foot a greater degree of safety whilst reducing the risk of injury when working with moving plant”. ShoulderMaster, the first Australian designed and manufactured skid steer paver attachment will be released to the Victorian market for the first time at ACE EXPO on stand B28.

European innovator brings you Trenchers and Earth Drills to suit your needs

The laborious task of digging a trench has been transformed since the advent of the Trencher Attachment. Auger Torque’s range of Trenchers cover depths up to 1.5 meters and widths up to 350mm, whilst spoil is piled neatly to the side of the trench by the integral auger. Auger Torque’s Stefan Knoeckle explains, “Our Trenchers are quickly gaining a reputation of being the toughest most versatile units on the market today and are available for a wide range of skid steers, mini loaders, backhoes and excavators up to 10 tonnes in weight”.

“Auger Torque’s Earth Drills are built to the most exacting standards using only high quality materials and the latest manufacturing techniques available. Our reputation of being a world leader in Auger research and development shows in the number of customers now using our products as their preferred tools of choice”.  See the range of innovative accessories that compliment Auger Torque’s Earth Drills range on Stand B36.
