Vin Richardson

Owner of Adavale
Plant Hire

With 35 years experience in the earthmoving and construction industry, Vin and his wife Jenny Richardson are third generation Leopardwood Park cattle station owners.

Adavale Plant Hire owns approximately 40 pieces of civil plant and specialises in road works, dams and civil works around Quilpie. And when they’re not cheering on their daughter Daisy (a fan favourite contestant on ‘Survivor Australia: Champions and Contenders’ and ‘Survivor All-Stars’), Vin and Jenny also run the local sand quarry.

A large, white truck is being loaded with red dirt by an orange excavator on a construction site. The excavator, operated by Vin Richardson, is perched on a mound of dirt, and the sky in the background is clear and blue.

When Vin’s trusty roller ‘Bam Bam’ was on the verge of retirement, he picked up the phone and got in touch with Conplant to add the new and improved ‘Bam Bam 2’ to his workforce.

And if the name sounds familiar that’s because Vin is an avid Flintstones fan, naming all of his machinery after iconic Flintstones characters.

“Conplant is my number one choice for compaction equipment, they are the best to work with for parts and service.”

“There is always someone available on the phone to speak to for service, parts or even machine advice and technical support,” said Vin.

Thanks for your support Vin and Jenny we look forward to working with you well into the future.
