Keeping noise on the down-low

Our engineers have invested a great deal of effort developing and fitting modifications to the excavators and trucks we use to reduce the noise they produce as much as possible.  We have reduced the noise on our large 100 tonne dump trucks by 17dBA (decibels adjusted).  A 10dBA reduction has essentially “halved the loudness.”


In recent years measures to reduce noise have included sound deadening blankets (like huge duvets - pictured above) being fitted to all dump trucks.
