Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project and this multi-billion dollar investment in Australia is benefiting from the flexibility and ease of use of the state-of-the-art PowerLatch Tilt hitch from earthmoving attachments specialist, Miller UK. The PowerLatch Tilt hitch is the attachment of choice for East to West Plant Services in Australia, who have been involved in this strategic construction project.
East to West are Australia’s fastest growing civil construction and formwork contractor servicing the Western Australia and New South Wales civil, private and construction sectors. The company was formed by Richard McNamara and Shane Finnerty who have a combined 40 years’ experience in the construction and earthmoving industry.
This new standalone railway will deliver 31 metro stations and more than 66 kilometres of new metro rail, revolutionising the way Australia’s biggest city travels. East to West Plant Services has supplied supervision for utilities in the Barangaroo and Blues Point Site as well as supplying, skilled operators, formworkers and planthire.
“When this project came up, I knew that the PowerLatch Tilt would be ideal for performing multi-purpose operations as it’s so precise and versatile. The fact that it’s so compact means that the operators can get the machine into narrow spaces with ease, something which has saved them a lot of time during this project”, said Richard. “In Europe, Miller is a very well-known and trusted brand, and myself coming from Ireland and using the product before it was an easy choice to make,” he added.
Norm Walsh, Sales and Support Manager from Miller Australia commented, “Tilt hitches, like the Miller PowerLatch hitch allows current attachments, whether that’s a bucket, breaker or grapple, to be tilted up to 90 degrees either way (a total of 180 degrees), giving operators much greater power and versatility on site than ever before without having to invest in costly new attachments.” He also added, “Miller have managed to deliver the lightest tilt frame in the marketplace with the lowest profile to offer optimised breakout force whilst increasing strength in traditionally highly stressed areas. Furthermore, the top bolted attachment method removes a notoriously troublesome welded connection seen in a number of other tilt hitches available on the market, which makes it the ideal choice for East to West Plant Services.”
