Palmer Earthmoving currently employs 26 employees in various positions and retains the service of extra specialised consultants and part time operators.

Dave Palmer started working life in 1984 as an apprentice mechanic in Denmark and his strong interest in earthmoving services meant that he was operating earthmoving and excavation machinery shortly afterwards. He purchased his first excavator in 1986 and has continued to provide contracting services ever since. He has built his reputation by never compromising on quality and has brought his philosophies of honesty and value for money into the business. He does not believe in price-cutting simply to win the work and then providing a substandard service or finish. He, along with the rest of our staff always delivers what his promises.
