About Us

Canberra Construction equipment engines

CANBERRA DIAMOND BLADE SUPPLIERS (CDBS CONSTRUCTION CENTRE) sells quality tradesmen tools and machinery, conducts service and repairs on construction machinery, and hires out construction machinery.

We have survived the test of time and have been providing great service, advice and products to tradesmen since 1993.



CDBS Construction Centre was born as a small stand of diamond blades alongside a concrete cutting business. It quickly grew as local tradesmen told us what they need, and what was hard to get. Canberra needed a place to get specialist items that are not available from generalist tool shops, and that is where we came from!

We have developed into the CDBS Construction Centre with a large showroom, onsite mechanics, and hire machinery.

CDBS Construction Centre’s onsite mechanics rarely send anything away. Our quality work and reputation among suppliers, means that we are the warranty repair agent for most machinery that we sell. We also fix brands we don’t stock, so if your construction equipment needs some love and care, we can help you out.

Our customers keep coming back as they know that CDBS Construction Centre are experts in what we sell. If you are unsure of what you need, or have a question about your equipment, we can guide you and offer advice.

When you buy machinery from us in store, we unpack it, set it up, and show you how to use it.

We sell what has been proven to be good. We listen to what our customers say and we repair machinery of all brands, so we know what machinery is better than others.

CDBS Construction Centre do special orders, so if you can’t find what you need call us! We can let you know when it will arrive, and it is usually pretty quick.
