With a half a metre lift front and back the Highlift is ideal for working in different ground conditions from sands to heavy loams and for projects from dams or bank construction or flood irrigation layouts

Company founder Colin O’Bryan says that the back lift is best for working in sandy ground and for trim work or where the material has poor flotation characteristics.

While the front lift is best for road formation work, dam or bank construction, another new feature are the side cutting edges on the front that make it easier to cut into the surface and to progressively deepen the excavation.

A O’Bryan HD Highlift scraper with a 4.5 metre working width was demonstrated to 30 farmers and contractors at a preview day at Swan Hill, Victoria.

Moulamein NSW irrigation rice farmer Matthew Russ has purchased the first machine out of the Swan Hill site of Murray Valley Lasers.
