We as Ellesmere Sugar Estates CC, have been using LT Earth Movers since 2004 doing various jobs associated with the farming industry.


We have to date de-stumped ±100 ha of timber that has been planted to sugarcane.


We have used bulldozers and graders to build and fix roads.


We have had a road completely rebuilt using excavators, graders, bulldozers, rollers, and dump trucks.


All equipment is well maintained with very little downtime due to break downs, with operators that are proficient in their jobs.


Most importantly we have found LT Earth Movers to be professional, reliable and efficient at what they do, and at a reasonable price.

We are Diary, Beef and Maize Farmers in the Kamberg Valley of the Natal Mildlands, Farming on some 3000 HA.


As with all Farmers we requre the services of reliable, reasonably priced contractors who will deliver a quality service in the shortest possible time.


We have found all the above qualities in Lance Trethewey's Earth Moving Company "LT Earth Movers".


We have been using Lance's company since 2004 for road building and the hire of excavators, at all times Lance and his company have delivered above and beyond expectations with well trained staff who know and can operate the machinery to best effect.


We had a situation in October this year where we required an excavator at very short notice. Within 24 hours of contacting Lance we had an excavator on the farm!


We have no hesitation in recommending Lance and his company to prospective clients.

When tasked to execute a large scale earthworks contract in a remote location such as the Lesotho highlands, and when the fight against the extreme natural elements is deemed a daily occurrence; an earthworks contractor cannot ask for much more than a plant hire company who believe in teamwork and understand that without working together the contract is headed for failure.


In addition to the extremely high level of plant which arrived on site, clean, professional and evidently very well maintained, LT Earth Movers portrayed a very professional level of business etiquette throughout the contract duration which made the relationship and contract a resounding success.


In the future I would not hesitate in contacting LT Earth Movers for the hire of plant anywhere in South Africa.

At the beginning of 2013 Holley Brothers hired LT’s equipment to do the earthworks for a broiler farm.


We hired the equipment instead of paying a contractor to do the work in order to try and save on costs. The service we received on hiring equipment was good as giving Lance and his team the job. Lance and his guys guided us almost daily in the beginning. We received honest advice and support as though we were their biggest client.


The equipment is well looked after and the downtime due to breakdowns, tyre changes...etc very limited.


Going forward we look forward to doing any work with them, it is a professional outfit with a wonderful attitude to clients and business. I will always be grateful for the support we received.


Lance is tall, good looking, well groomed and so are his machines.
