Final Trim Grader Hire — for any project

About us

Adept Plant Hire is a premier grader-hire equipment company that specialises in providing final trim graders and skilled operators up and down the East Coast and on some of the biggest major projects in the country.

With over two decades of experience, we have successfully contributed to major projects across Australia. Our fleet comprises late model John Deere Graders equipped with Trimble UTS systems, which are meticulously maintained to the highest standards. Our operators receive continuous training to stay updated with evolving technology.

Specialising in highway upgrades, rail works and major projects, our operators excel in bulk earthworks and pavement works. We’ve handled over 3000t of material, meeting deadlines and tolerances. Our operators are proficient in setting up total stations and performing full calibrations; and now most of our graders are using the newest Trimble Earthworks technology.


Delivering accuracy to your next civil project.



Quality Equipment

When it comes to civil construction, precision is key. That’s why we choose John Deere graders, the best in the industry. Our graders are top-of-the-line, providing accuracy and consistency in every stage of the construction process. Our expert drivers utilise the 670GP, 672GP and 770GP models because both are known for their outstanding maximum performance.

From local road and sub-divisions to highway and rail projects, our commitment to precision and accuracy with the latest equipment allows us to deliver our work to the highest standards possible which enables us to give you quality results on your project.

Skilled Operators

We believe that skilled operators are critical to the success of any civil construction project. Our team of expert operators is the best in the business, chosen for their skills in the seat and their ability to work collaboratively with contractors to ensure the smooth execution of even the most complex projects.

When you hire our team, you can be confident that we’ll assign the right operator to your site, one who will deliver exceptional performance and the highest level of professionalism. With years of experience and a commitment to excellence, our drivers are equipped to handle any challenge that comes their way.



To ensure that we provide our clients with the best equipment for their projects, we are continuously upgrading our fleet. In fact, we just added the latest John Deere grader to our fleet, because of its advanced three-axle system and all-wheel-drive capabilities.

This is important because we understand that the Australian landscape can be challenging and we don’t want encumbered equipment to hinder the progress of your next project. By investing in top-of-the-line equipment, 
we can guarantee that our team will have the tools they need to deliver exceptional results, on time and within budget.

Our attention to detail and ability to get the job done correctly maximise your results and reduces your costs.

We understand the extra costs involved in placing asphalt and concrete so getting the base right is what we do.




The Project

Downer, the prime contractor working for the Australian Defence Force, needed to improve the airstrips at the RAAF Base in Williamtown, Newcastle to accommodate the new fleet of F-35 Lightning II fighter jets. The project budget was $165m and included funding for a new runway and improvements to the existing runway systems.

Our Solution

We dispatched an Adept Final Trim Grader and our best operator to complete the project. He prepared and trimmed each section of the subgrade and placed the cement-treated-gravel all within tolerance, required time frames and budget for the new runway. The job was complicated because it was staged: every section had to be finished before we could move on to the next portion.

Complicating things was the fact that the military base was fully operational and the runways were still being used. That fact created small windows for gravel placement and finishing.

Despite the many challenges, we finished the project on schedule. After 12 months on the project, the client was happy enough with our work to contract us for another project.
