R&R McClure adds GRUNDODRILL28Nplus to their fleet

16.01.19 - It’s no exaggeration to call Tim McClure, owner of R&R McClure Excavation Ltd Pty in Castlemaine, a dedicated HDD enthusiast and a pioneer in applying this versatile trenchless method in the south-eastern Australian state of Victoria. In order to successfully do so, he relies on the GRUNDODRILL rigs by TRACTO-TECHNIK. Recently R&R
McClure added a GRUNDODRILL28Nplus to the exis-ting fleet, which was officially handed over by TRACTO-TECHNIK Australia’s sales manager Daniel Toms at the R&R McClure headquarters. The HDD gene runs in the family. Robert and Ruth commenced business in 1988 with a bed borer and backhoe. By early 1990 they had completed thousands of meters of boring that included gas, water, electric and later in 1993 optic fibre from Melbourne to Sydney and Melbourne to Adelaide. From the early beginning Tim McClure has steadily expanded the HDD division of the civil engineering company. That way R & R McClure have developed from a two-person firm to a trenchless technologies specialist renowned beyond the region of Victoria currently having a staff of more than 45 members.

Already owning eight HDD systems by TRACTO-TECHNIK including two GRUNDODRILLL18ACS rigs they are applying for sophisticated bores through grade 5 - 4 soils and rock, R &R McClure are planning and performing all kinds of sophisticated HDD projects for clients ranging from government authorities and multi-national enterprises to private local companies. Providing a thrust and pullback of 280 kN, the GRUNDODRILL28Nplus is the first HDD from TRACTO-TECHNIK of this size in the region and will enable R&R McClure to achieve even longer bores up to 710 mm diameter.

In addition to the new GRUNDODRILL28Nplus, R&R McClure also acquired the fourth compact GRUNDODRILL4X HDD rig as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to keep their equipment as up to date as possible. While the 28Nplus was purchased for the larger jobs, the 4X is perfectly suitable for small-diameter undercrossings and parallel bores as well as for installing all kinds of property service connections on a near-surface level.

Company owner Tim McClure was delighted at the delivery of the GRUNDODRILL28Nplus saying: “We can always rely on our GRUNDODRILL rigs and on TRACTO-TECHNIK. This goes for their efficient and effective machine technology as well as for the fantastic support provided by the staff in Brisbane and Germany. The GRUNDODRILL28Nplus will enable us to further expand our performance spectrum by the even larger and longer profitable bores in the complex and varying Australian soils.”

TRACTO-TECHNIK would like to thank R&R McClure for their longstanding loyalty and continuous effort in proving what the GRUNDODRILL rigs are able to achieve. With Tim’s wife Kelly and even their children sharing his passion for HHD, the company’s future looks bright. As said, the HDD gene runs in the family
