What We do

Our Services

Menzi Solutions

The Menzi Spider is a walking excavator with special features built on a sophisticated high-tech chassis. It has various cylinders enabling the all - rounder to adapt its wheels and supports to any terrain. Mountain stabilizers provide increased support on steep slopes assisting with gaining access in hard to reach areas.  


Our Menzi Spider excavator provides a unique advantage over standard rail based equipment given its' ability to independently de-rail and re-rail on an open section of track. Transformations from rail excavator to mobile walking excavator are completed quickly, allowing work to be done on and off the rail more effectively and efficiently.


The Menzi Spider uses only biologically degradable hydraulic oil to help protect environmentally sensitive areas including streams, forests, the surrounding landscape and wildlife. With the adjustable legs in addition to the environmentally safe oil, the result is the ability to safely work in water depth up to two meters.


Our Menzi has the following attachments:


  • Grapple

  • Mulcher

  • Winch

  • Climbing Claws

  • 360 degree tilt rotator provides increased functionality and versatility of attachments

  • Air Compressor

  • Power line for extra auxiliary hydraulic output


The Menzi Spider specializes in:


  • Rail Services

  • Municipality Services

  • Construction

  • Forestry
