Customer in Focus: Schwarz Excavations

Each month, we focus in on one of our valued customers who have taken a recent delivery from The Drake Group. Our Customer is Focus for August is Schwarz Excavations, who is a well-respected rail maintenance and civil construction company based in Central Queensland.

About Schwarz Excavations

From humble beginnings, Schwarz Excavations was established by husband and wife team, Noel and Patricia Schwarz. They began with a mini excavator and a single truck, working on a contract with local builders and plumbers in Queensland. Within five years, they had steadily expanded their business, adding more modern machinery to their fleet including bobcats, excavators and trucks.

Now in their second generation, their son Jeffrey Schwarz has taken over the reigns as a director as the demand for rail maintenance projects increased. They’ve recently been working on some large projects including the repair of train rail lines in the wake of Cyclone Debbie, which hit our shores in late March this year, leaving a trail of destruction across Queensland and New South Wales.

They had a little help in their clean up project, thanks to their recent delivery of a drop deck low boy trailer, designed and manufactured by Drake Trailers.

An instant workhorse

Our Low Boy trailer is an innovative market leader, featuring a heavy duty drop deck and high tensile frame. Weighing in at only 10.68 tonnes, the low tare weight of our low boy trailer is an ideal economical solution for transporting even the heaviest of equipment.

This lowboy, in particular, has been put straight to work, assisting in the repair of the Queensland rail network. Using the drop deck low boy, Schwarz Excavations and our other valued customers will benefit from:

  • A durable, solid high tensile frame, built with Australian, Swedish and Japanese steel
  • Low tare weight of 10.5 tonnes
  • Trailer lengths from 40 to 48 feet
  • Variable ramp lengths from 3 metres to 4.8m bi-folds. Optional Lay Flat for increased fuel economy
  • 35-tonne capacity
  • 3X4 and 4X4 configurations available
  • Optional pull-out, flip-over or hydraulic mid-tilting ramps to the top deck

Schwarz Excavations are a leading company who knows quality when they see it. Their investment in a Low Boy Trailer from The Drake Group, will offer long-term efficiency with great resale value. We thank Schwarz Excavations for their continued business and we look forward to collaborating with them in the near future.
