Hunter Plant Mechanics was established in 2006 but we have 25 years experience working in the mining, construction and agriculture industries in the Upper Hunter region. This includes OEM experience and sound knowledge with Liebherr 400T and 660T excavators and 300T trucks, Hitachi 360T and 550T Excavators as well as caterpillar mining equipment including D10,d11 Dozers, 190T and 240T trucks, 16 and 24 series graders, 992 and 994 loaders and push cats as well as a large range of other mining equipment.

We have extensive experience and knowledge in hydraulic diagnostics with a focus on root cause problem solving, component overhaul and replacement as well as general service and repairs. This hydraulic and mechanical experience extends to construction equipment and agricultural equipment dealing with a vast range of OEM’s.

We also provide a plant auto electrical service including fitment of mine spec modifications, diagnostics and general repairs.

We have proven experience in delivering excavator reliability, through day to day event monitoring and problem solving along with providing extensive pre-service inspections, working with onsite planners to provide an appropriate service pack, service eve set up and service day supervision, providing high planned to completed work rates, on time, under budget, with no lost time injuries.

Hydraulic Repairs
Providing a root cause analysis is crucial to solving the problem and not addressing the symptoms, allowing accurate component change out first time and moving away from replacing components until the problem is solved. We are also familiar with MDG 41 and can assist in meeting compliance and utilising it to improve reliability and availability of your equipment. We also have experience in identifying excessive heat generating issues and providing solutions to keep your machine at ideal operating temperature.

We provide complete maintenance packages and solutions for your entire fleet to increase your availability and reliability, such as our client Complete Ground Maintenance who has a diverse range of machinery to service the mining Industry.

Hunter Plant Mechanics have been completing mechanical work for Complete Ground Maintenance for the past five years. Phil undertakes various types of work for me, such as small engine repairs, large ride on mowers, tractors, spray units and multiple vehicles. He has excellent welding abilities. I contract to mining companies and Hunter Plant Mechanics has complete understanding of what is required to have machinery and vehicles up to mine specifications. Phil is prompt with his servicing of vehicles and machinery as he is aware that they are essential for our business to run smoothly. He will discuss repairs that are required and keep you updated on progress.
