Mining Service Trucks Designed For Durability And Reliability

When you need mining service trucks for rugged terrain, look no further than Plantman. Our trucks are built tough because we understand the pressures of working in Australian mining conditions. Our vehicles are designed with safety, durability and usability in mind. We’re often considered the benchmark for mining service vehicles in Australia. It’s because we were the first to market with our signature service truck range and people know they can trust a Plantman truck to do the job it was built for, even in some of the toughest conditions.

We’ve been putting our trucks through some of the toughest mining conditions in the world since 1992, and we’re continually making improvements to ensure our vehicles meet your needs. If you need mining service trucks for hire or you’d like to purchase one, we can make it happen.

When you need a range of vehicles added to your fleet, our experts can put together a fleet of fit-for-purpose vehicles that you can rely on. We can also customise all vehicles to your specifications, that can be regularly adjusted to suit your requirements as they change.

This flexibility includes the ability to:

  • Mount the service module onto a range of cab chassis’ allowing greater fleet consistency
  • Adjust the arrangement and quantities of tanks (diesel, oil, water, coolant and evacuation fluids)
  • Adjust the features to meet specific site & safety requirements

Where can our service trucks be used?

Built for tough terrains, our mining service trucks can be used in a range of different applications. You can use them for re-fuelling, oiling, crane operation, removing waste and other materials, and even water trucks for dust suppression and road construction – we’ve got you covered.

Our durable and reliable trucks can also be used in:

  • Deep pit mining
  • Underground mining
  • Mining
  • Civil construction

From general service vehicles and water trucks to drill support trucks, we can assemble a fleet to your exact specifications, making Plantman a one-stop-shop for all your equipment needs.

  • Zero spillage concept
  • Durability in tough conditions
  • Ergonomic operator cabins
  • Low running costs
  • Variety of size and capacity
  • Hazard reduction design

Whether you need small-capacity fuel and lubrication trailers or a fully customised, heavy-duty 18,000L mine spec service truck, we’ve got them. With usability and safety always a priority, our vehicles are easy to operate while maintaining high safety standards.

Types of mining service trucks available

You can access a vast range of mining service vehicles to support any scale operation. There’s no job too big or too small, and we’ve got a great variety to support all types of operations. Here are some mining service vehicles available for hire or purchase through Plantman.

Service Trucks

Built tough and packed with safety features, our service trucks allow you to keep your machinery and equipment fuelled, oiled and in excellent working order. Best of all, they are fully flexible, and we can customise everything to suit site specifications, including tank configuration and service module positioning.

Water Trucks

Much like service trucks, water trucks are invaluable in mining operations. Often used to wet the ground in dry conditions and suppress dust, our water trucks are customisable, flexible and designed to operate in harsh conditions. They are also extremely useful in road construction around mine sites.

Crane Trucks

We have an expansive selection of crane trucks, offering crane capacity from 2 – 10 tons in all-steel flat or tilt trays, available to suit all mining applications. Like all Plantman vehicles, safety features are in abundance, plus the ability to customise vehicles to suit your needs.

Diesel Tankers

Diesel trucks ensure you keep your machinery, heavy-duty vehicles, earthmoving equipment and power generators fuelled adequately at all times. This reduces the risk of downtime and increases overall mine productivity. With various configurations available, you can access a diesel tanker truck to suit any application.

Tipper Trucks

Our tipper trucks feature robust construction and premium safety features to protect drivers and other workers alike. Ranging from 4.5m3 to 11.3m3, we also offer a 6.2m3 side-tip truck for more complex applications. Large tipper trucks help reduce operating costs by decreasing the number of trips required to remove materials.

Flat Bed Tray Trucks

Our flat bed tray trucks are all fitted with automatic transmission and packed with safety features. You can configure them to your specifications, serving several important purposes in large-scale mining operations.

Mine Buses

Large-scale mining operations need a way to safely transport workers across site. Our mine buses are designed with strength and durability in mind, able to operate in harsh conditions where people’s comfort and safety is paramount.

Light Vehicles

For smaller operations, we’ve also got light vehicles available for hire. They’re flexible and able to be configured for a range of uses, with a 990kg crane capacity, an all-steel toolbox and automatic transmission. Aside from being highly cost-effective, these light vehicles are sturdy and reliable in harsh terrain.

The benefits of hiring mining service trucks from Plantman

When running a mining operation, you already know what type of trucks and heavy machinery you need. But how you get them is another question. Do you buy or look for mining service trucks for hire? There are benefits to both, but we believe hiring your mining service trucks is a smart option for many reasons.

Here are some benefits of hiring your mining service trucks from Plantman.

Quality late-model vehicles

One of the issues with buying mining vehicles is that they age, some way too fast. That’s unavoidable, and no matter how well you look after a vehicle, ageing is inevitable. As time passes, new technology becomes available and is installed on newer models. If you own a truck and want that technology, you’ll have to get it retrofitted (if that’s even possible), which can be costly.

Instead, with mine truck rental, you get a newer model service vehicle that should have all the bells and whistles. The beauty of renting is that you can choose your lease terms. So, even if you’ve got a long-term mining operation, you can potentially switch to a newer vehicle after a certain period of time. This way, you’re always getting the best mining vehicles.

Reliable maintenance plans

With Plantman, you can choose to include a maintenance plan in your rental agreement. This is important for long-term rentals because you obviously want your mine service truck to perform optimally throughout the lease period.

We have technicians who can conduct regular maintenance on your trucks as required to keep them running at their best. Rather than wasting precious energy worrying about truck maintenance, you can let the Plantman team take care of it for you.

Equipment training

While you probably have plenty of employees who know how to use service trucks, we still offer an expert training service to ensure your operators have specific knowledge about our trucks. Our training is the most up-to-date and comprehensive that you’ll find. You can be assured that all your operators, regardless of their experience levels, will be well trained to operate our vehicles.

This training is invaluable because, as you would know, all mining service trucks are a bit different. We offer quality, late-model vehicles, so some of your more experienced operators may not be familiar with some of the modern features. We’ll ensure all operators can operate the trucks effectively, and safety is always the number one priority.

Truck delivery

We can organise the delivery of your mining service trucks to practically anywhere in Australia. So, if you’re in a remote location and can’t afford the downtime to come and collect the vehicle, we’ll bring it to you. All of our delivery services are fast and safe, ensuring you get your vehicle quickly and in perfect working order to minimise disruptions to your operation.


The great thing about mine truck rental is the flexibility you have. Naturally, all rental agreements are for a specified period, but they’re not without flexibility. If you’re part of the way through a lease period and you know that you’ll need the vehicle for longer, just give us a call. We’ll extend your contract and keep it affordable.

We’ve worked with the mining industry for years, so we understand the environments you work in. Our team understands that your needs can change frequently based on various factors. Delays can be caused by almost anything in the mining industry, and that’s why we stay as flexible as possible with our rental trucks.
