About Mini Machines Direct

Hi, my name is Craig Emerson, the owner of Mini Machines Direct.

I enjoy getting out on the water doing fishing and scuba diving. I also love being outdoors and travelling around with my family and our twin baby daughters.

With 20 years of experience in heavy construction and mining machinery maintenance, I have the know-how in dealing with heavy duty machinery doing diagnosing, repairs, and rebuilding as a diesel fitter.

Over those years I have worked at dealerships, quarries, mines and construction sites. With the help of my wife and twin daughters, I decided that after many years it was time to step out of the technician role and share my knowledge via being a business owner, which is why I started Mini Machines Direct Pty Ltd.

I know and understand first hand that when quality components and parts are used, longevity can be achieved out of the machinery, and that reliable machinery can be the backbone of any earth moving business.

Manouverable and perfect for small spaces

Our Machines are designed to go where other larger machines can’t. With outstanding maneuverability in confined spaces due to their zero-turn-capacity, they’re perfect for levelling, digging, and other tasks and projects in tight areas.

Confined areas and narrow gates are becoming more and more common in heavy duty working environments restricting the amount of room available. Our Taskmaster range can get in and do work that under common conditions would rely on costly manual labour.

Return on investment

Labour costs can be set aside for an efficient machine, easy to maintain and with long lasting service, which means you’ll be turning a profit with your new Taskmaster skid steer loader in no time. Speaking of time, the amount you’ll save by sending in the mini skid steer to do the job in a precise, efficient manner is also going to help you to maximise returns in the long run.
