Hiring a 4WD Mine Spec Vehicle

Hiring a 4WD Mine Spec Vehicle is the ideal solution for those working on mine sites. Here, the terrain can often be very muddy, rocky, and uneven. With all the different customisations, accessories and various vehicles to select from, the process of choosing the best mine spec hire vehicle can sometimes appear to be quite complicated. However, at Fleetcrew, you can rely on us to point you in the right direction — each and every time!

Best 4WD vehicle hire types

For those companies selecting a mine spec vehicle to hire, there is always a major factor at play. This being, having the assurance that any vehicle used on a mine site (and for mine-related work), is one that has a strong and durable base model. This is the practical guarantee that the hire vehicle will indeed be capable of performing the tough tasks required in mines. 

This base model, with the added accessories and customisation, will need to be able to withstand extended periods of use, and function without breakdowns or other major issues.

When hiring a mine spec vehicle, a 4WD vehicle is simply the way to go. The 4WD functionality has the capacity to handle the rugged off-road terrain and stand up to any rough-and-ready task a mine-site.

At Fleetcrew, we use Toyota as the base model.  With further mine spec customisation applied, our Toyotas are some of the most reliable vehicles anywhere.

Safety features and accessories for mine spec vehicle hires

Upgrading and adding accessories to your base vehicle will not only provide extra safety, but will also meet the requirements for certain accessories enforced by some mine sites. Such as mine spec vehicle safety requirements for BHP mines.

There are key mine spec accessories you should prioritise to ensure any suitable vehicle is ready for the mines. These include:

  • IVMS (In-vehicle monitoring system)
  • Visibility accessories – spotlights, mine light bars, reverse beepers, reflective tapes, high visibility flags, and safety triangle
  • VHF and UHF radio communication
  • ROPS (Roll-Over protection systems)
