Being dedicated to the specialised product lines of its five brands enables Wirtgen to focus on providing end to end solutions to suit individual customer’s requirements. We do this by having local and factory trained service technicians operating from bases in five states who understand the machines and models sold in Australia to you, our Customers.

Finally these local specialists have direct contact with their counterparts in each of the German factories.
Mine operators for some time now have been increasingly turning to an alternative to conventional rip-and-stack or drill-and-blast coal mining: the use of surface miners. Diverse studies and tests show that surface miners offer considerable advantages in terms of both economic efficiency and the final product.
The main advantages of Wirtgen surface mining technology include the following:
• Selective mining
• Avoidance of blasting
• Cutting, crushing and loading in a single operation
• Maximum exploitation of deposits
• Reduced transport costs
Wirtgen supplies surface miners in a variety of performance classes for the selective mining of commodities, such as coal, limestone, bauxite, gypsum, salt and phosphate. In addition to mining, these machines can also carry out routing operations for constructing roads and railway tracks, rehabilitating roadways and installing tunnel floors. The range of applications further includes the precision cutting of ditches and channels as well as surface leveling.
