Grooming and Chipping

Melbourne and Regional Victoria


Grooming and chipping are processes used by Platypus to dispose of organic waste.

Our excavator mounted grooming attachment, enables our specialists to mulch branches and woody weeds of up to 6 inches in diameter. Woody weeds include species such as boxthorn, blackberry, gauze and hawthorn, which can colonise steep slopes. Our excavator is equipped with a blade to enable safe work on such inclines.

In circumstances where the removal of large trees is necessary, such as willow removal, our team has the facilities to chip whole trees up to a diameter of 18 inches with the use of our industrial chipper. Utilising our 10 cubic meter tipper truck, we are also able to remove and transport the organic waste from the job site or spread the material as mulch in-situ.
