Excavation Services

CAT 304 Excavator & 308 Coming


At Blackthorn Contractors, over the years we have experienced the need to expand into having our own excavators and other related equipment.  Due to some of the locations that we build, some local contractors are too long of a wait, too busy, or they just were plain "Not Interested"  We are interested in your excavation needs.  We are a progressive company with the skills to take care of you.

The CAT 304 is one of our machines able to cut driveways, remove trees and their stumps, dig foundations and landscape.  We are looking at purchasing a Cat 308 shortly, larger capacity.

Skid Steers and Other Equipment


We use GWG Rentals for all our other equipment needs.

We have experience running skid steers, loaders, tele-handlers, forklifts, excavators for both digging and breaking concrete and rock, packers and man lifts.

Dont sub-contract out the work, we can do most work at a lower competitive price
