About Us

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 and hydraulic man cages.

Diack Bros. Ltd have six crane-mounted (Hiab) trucks all equipped with 14 meter booms. Five of the trucks are the largest in Hawke’s Bay. 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 meters. Most loads can be handled directly from the truck deck to be placed up to the second-storey level of buildings.

When a crane is required there are six cranes available ranging in capacity from 16 tonnes up to 80 tonnes payload with a boom length up to 68 meters. Lifting equipment includes spreader beams and specialist strops.

The fleet of 2.5 and three tonne capacity fork lifts is available for local hireage and can be supplied with options such as long tines and specialist lifting apparatus, including personnel cages. Scissor lifts are available for hire and can lift personnel and equipment up to 15 meters high.

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 transportation requirements. The company is fully OSH accredited.

Other facilities offered are traffic control and pilot duties if necessary.
