Diack Bros. Ltd was established in 1962 when it was identified that there were insufficient numbers of lifting machines available in Hawke’s Bay to efficiently operate the contract building business. From an initial purchase of one mobile crane, the present day fleet has expanded to include a variety of mobile and truck-mounted cranes. Other equipment includes forklifts, scissor lifts, load skates, jacks and more.

Diack Bros. Ltd have several crane-mounted (Hiab) trucks equiped with booms up to 18.5m. These vehicles are primarily employed in the building industry carting loads including framing, roof trusses, long run iron, palletised blocks and board and steel fittings all up to a total length of 19 metres. Most loads can be handled directly from the truck deck to be placed up to the second-storey level of buildings. Empty containers can be handled and some full containers up to 10 tonne, provided close lifting proximity can be arranged. Heavier containers can be handled by special arrangement.

When a crane is required, there are eight cranes available ranging in capacity from 13 tonnes up to 100 tonnes, with a boom length up to 68 metres. Lifting equipment includes spreader beams, specialist strops, man cages, fixed cages, lifting beams and rolling blocks.

The forklift fleet comprises 2.5 tonne, 3 tonne (including All-Terrain 4WD), 3.5 tonne and 7 tonne capacity fork lifts. They are available for local hire-age and can be supplied with options such as long forks and specialist lifting apparatus, including personnel cages. Scissor lifts are available for hire and can lift personnel and equipment up to 13 metres platform height.

Diack Bros. Ltd have established a reputation as being market leaders in their field and our highly trained operators offer a high degree of professionalism for all your lifting and transportation requirements. The company is fully OSH certified and accredited.

Areas of operation include Napier, Hastings, Havelock North, and by special arrangement to Wairoa and Gisborne, as well as Waipawa, Waipukurau and Dannevirke.
