“Having grown from 12 to 200 machines on hire, we count on OZ Excavator Buckets’ attachments to perform!”
For 12 years, OZ Excavator Buckets has remained Gerard O’Brien’s favourite excavator and earthmoving attachments supplier.
Gerard, from Pipeline Plant Hire, is happy to say that Pete and his team at OZ Excavator Buckets have never let him down, even as his demands change with his move into the Coal Seam Gas (CSG) industry.
Excavator Attachments for Coal Seam Gas projects
“Six years ago we only had 12 Hitachi machines for hire, and 12 months ago that number had grown to 64. Now we have around 200 machines!” says Gerard.
“Our machines are on hire throughout Australia — and 99% of these are being used in the coal seam gas industry.”
Changing demand for excavator attachments
“We have always ordered a mix of attachments, but with the increased demands of the CSG industry we are ordering mainly buckets, rippers and compaction wheels from OZ Excavator Buckets,” says Gerard.
Prompt delivery, no matter the location
“OZ Excavator Buckets’ service is prompt and very good.”
“Having around 200 machines out on hire means a lot of customers, a lot of jobs, and a lot of deadlines to meet. When one of our customers requires an attachment, we need to be able to get it to him as soon as possible.
“Our machines are located in different parts of Australia, and Pete will ship excavator attachments direct to the different locations, with the fastest turnaround of any manufacturer!
“That’s one of the reasons I use OZ Excavator Buckets,” Gerard explains. “Pete understands our industry and the pressures we work under, and the team at OZ Excavator Buckets really do everything they can to help us out.”
A very happy customer
“I’ve never had any dramas whatsoever with OZ Excavator Buckets,” says Gerard.
“Their service is prompt and their products are of exceptional quality. I’m happy to recommend them.”

When your job demands breaking through though surfaces (such as rock, tarmac, or paving), you need a strong, reliable and durable excavator tyne.
With careful selection, a quality excavator shank will help you get your work done quicker, so you can be more productive.
Here are a few things to look out for when selecting an excavator ripper:
- Advanced shank geometry
The shank should be designed to break through and rake the toughest surfaces with ease allowing for efficient ripping under a variety of conditions.Choose a ripper with a streamline design. This will ensure your shank rips the material rather than ploughing it.Ripper shape should promote efficient ripping. This means you’ll make easier, deeper rips without putting too much of a load on the machine.
- Proper tyne construction
Heavy duty robust construction will ensure your excavator ripper has the increased strength and durability to last for years to come.Tyne cheeks should be reinforced for added durability.
- Manufactured from high strength steel
Be sure to select an excavator ripper that is manufactured from high strength steel for a longer lifespan.
- OH&S compliant
Naturally, all excavator tynes used on your earthmoving equipment should be manufactured to comply with OH&S requirements.
- Heavy-duty base plate
The ripper base plate provides strength through the ripper from the ears with strengthening gussets for maximum ripping power.When selecting shanks for your excavator, it is important to go for a ripper with a heavy-duty base plate. This provides added strength and durability to the ripper attachment so that you get years of useful work from it.
- Ripper tyne length
A good supplier should carry a range of excavator rippers of various lengths. Be sure to get advice where necessary on what is best for your application.
- Wear protection on the tyne shin
Ripper blade shin guards offer further protection and longevity in rock and abrasive applications.
- Ground engaging tools
Most suppliers include the boot and nose with their rippers.
