Heavy Equipment Rentals & Contracting

Heavy Equipment Rentals & Contracting

Whissell Contracting has a continuously expanding fleet of over 200 pieces of heavy equipment, highway trucks and trailers. Our fleet includes construction equipment, tractors and trailers. Recent acquisitions in 2014 include two Caterpillar 657G Scrapers, Caterpillar 14M Grader, Caterpillar 815F Compactor, two Volvo A40F Articulated Trucks, Caterpillar 349E Excavator and Caterpillar 328LDRC Excavator.

The core of our heavy equipment rentals and contracting program is our philosophy on maintenance. We invest heavily in properly maintaining and repairing equipment in order to minimize downtime and provide maximum service to our clients. Our heavy equipment fleet is managed by our well trained mechanical staff from our shops in Calgary and Lethbridge. We also operate a fleet of Lube/Fuel Trucks and Mechanic Trucks for fueling, servicing and repairing equipment in the field. As a result, we have developed a reputation of having one the best maintained fleets in Alberta. Our Highway Tractors are the ‘jewels’ of the fleet, decked out in “Whissell” Orange paint and chrome; we get many compliments on our fleet.

We have the capacity to meet even the most stringent project timelines.
