There are no traffic jams on the extra mile.

Going the extra mile is what has kept Aqualine 

customers coming back for over 50 years

OUr history

Aqualine Contractors, also known as Aqualine Trenchers, is a family owned and operated 3rd generation business, with more than 50 years’ experience. We are a vibrant and growing business that has built up a strong following (with many repeat customers) throughout the greater Hawkes Bay region, servicing the farming, horticultural, agricultural , viticultural,  construction and residential/lifestyle block communities. 



  • Founder R J Bishop brought the first pneumatic rubber-tyred tractor into  the Hawkes Bay for use on horticultural and agricultural fields

  • In the 1970’s, the company took on the first laser-equipped field drainage trenching equipment, which proved to be hugely successful for installing plastic instead of clay piping 

  • In the early 2000’s, we developed our own vibrating ploughing equipment, which enables us to minimise ground disturbance. Customers have been blown away by what this equipment can do!
