This week Platypus Environmental Services took delivery of our new HG6000tx Vermeer Horizontal Grinder. It makes light work of our large willow stockpiles removed from the Yarra River in Woori Yallock for Melbourne Water. These environmental works are part of a larger river health project targeting the Yarra River and includes fencing, revegetation and woody weed control. Capable of processing up to 300m3/hour and with a 1524mmx813mm infeed this 755Hp beast has also made the worksite safer being fully remotely operated from the excavator. We would like to take the opportunity to thank Vermeer Australia for their exceptional service and Vic Low Loaders fo picking it up from Brisbane @vermeeraustralia @rdoequipmentau @melbournewater #vermeer #hg6000tx #riverrestoration #riverhealth #volvoce #ec140 #melbournewater #healthywaterways #yarravalley #yarrariver #willowremoval #treeremoval #stihl #husqvarna

This week we began large scale willow removal works along the Yarra River, up in the Yarra Valley. Looking forward to follow up revegetation of indigenous species and hoping to see plenty more Platypus in this section of the river in the future πŸ™‚ #yarrariver #riverhealth #woodyweedremoval #riverrestoration #healthywaterways #environmental #platypusenvironmental #volvoexcavator #conservation
