McManaway Earthmoving

Hitachi ticks all the boxes for one of Brisbane’s biggest Earth Moving & Plant Hire Companies.

McManaway Earthmoving

Established in 2012, family owned and operated McManaway Earthmoving are quickly becoming one of Queensland’s most sought after companies for services in Plant Hire, Bulk Earthworks, Demolition and Basement Excavations throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Owner and Director, James McManaway, believes its rapid growth is due to the combined family experience in earthmoving going back three generations. The family have run Hitachi equipment, with never having any issues whilst always receiving ongoing support from the team. 

McManaway now own a fleet of 10 Hitachi excavators driving productivity across several worksites, ranging from 5.5 tonne to 47 tonne: ZX55U-5, ZX75US-5, 2 x ZX135US-5, ZX225US-5, ZX260LC-5, ZX350-5 and a ZX490LCH-5. 

With no time to waste, the machines are already out on site working across numerous projects within Queensland. 

“We have them currently working on a few big key projects including the Ipswich Motorway Upgrade, multiple large basement digs located in South East Queensland and a very large sea wall under construction on the Gold Coast,” said James. 

As a company who will not compromise on quality, James believes the Hitachi equipment help compliment this commitment to customers. “We pride ourselves on customer service, time efficiency and providing work at the highest standards possible and with our Hitachi excavators on board, we have the ability to deliver a smooth operation which is a key to a good outcome all round,” said James.

McManaway also credit their team of highly trained and experienced operators, “I would be lying if I didn’t consider them when choosing equipment that is not only comfortable but enjoyable for our guys to operate,” he said.  

“Our operators like working with the modern comforts when operating to get the best result, the heated seats for winter and freezing air conditioning for summer are key highlights of the Hitachi excavators.

“The gear we have is always a stand out at any jobsite. The uniform equipment has a constant effect on the face of our business, we endeavour to only have the cleanest look and tidiest machines around,” said James.

The McManaway Earthmoving team continues to be impressed by the performance of their Hitachi fleet and the support from Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia Pty Ltd.

“Performance is key to our business, having machines that don’t have issues is what we strive for, and Hitachi can supply this.

“Our Hitachi equipment is being used for every aspect of earthmoving; we use smaller gear for final trimming through to the big machines on basement digs.

“Our Sales Representative Ross Anderson is outstanding and always the first port of call. A fantastic sales rep who only offers the best and delivers everything we require in this industry to be successful.”
