In celebration of our 10 year anniversary we are highlighting one of our longest running machines the 6 Tonne Tipper Truck that has been with Dig It Civil since we began in 1997. 

This machine has never let us down with over 300,000 kilometres under its belt, It
has been the backbone of the company for many years.
