Plant Specs Australia Website Launched !

Australia’s only comprehensive annual listing of earthmoving and road construction equipment has relaunched its website ( with a range of improvements that its publisher says delivers enhanced information to its subscribers.

Formerly a part of the Earthmover and Civil Contractor package and published since the mid-1980s, Plant Specs also lives on in hard copy format as a stand-alone annual publication after being purchased by its national advertising manager, Michelle McDougall and production supervisor Greg Dickins.

Plant Specs has been a bible for the industry for over 30 years and is a prime resource for all players from local civil contractors to global leaders in equipment manufacture.

All the specs are painstakingly collected and checked from Australian sources. Brands and agents are cross-referenced in Plant Specs Australia’s comprehensive contact directories.

The exclusive Plant Specs Australia Classifications are especially valued in tendering processes because essential requirements can be specified in a data format that all parties can easily access.

Now the Plant Specs Australia Online website has been completely rebuilt and offers significantly improved interface with new features including:

  • Updates to new and existing machine specs in real time.
  • Plant Specs Classifications can be searched with other equipment specifications and the results downloaded for immediate and future use.
  • Specs data dating back to 1986 available faster in user-friendly, downloadable tables.
  • Timely details of how to contact manufacturers and their agents nationally, by state, and locally.
  • Subscription payments can be made securely online via credit card in check-out format.
  • Improved ability for advertisers to target buyers and users of equipment related to specs searches.

With the relaunch, existing subscribers will be issued with new passwords and receive regular and more timely advice of renewals.

Many established users of Plant Specs Australia will be pleased to know the hard copy edition will continue to be published in January each year.
