Micro Diggers


We rise above the competetion with the Bobcat E10 Microdigger. This tiny 1200kg machine still at only 710mm wide is narrow enough to pass through openings such as garden gates yet has a massive weight advantage of around 400kg over the competition such as the JCB microdigger meaning it is more stable and it can dig with more power. The Bobcat E10 also features servo controls so you can feel as at home on this micro as you would on any 1.5t mini digger or 3t digger, a quick hitch to save manually handling the buckets, auxillary piping to run breakers and post hole augers, expanding tracks, 2 speed travel and folding roll over protection.


1.5 Ton Mini Diggers


Again we outweigh the competition with the Bobcat E19 Mini Digger. Even though they are classed as 1.5 tonners this machine is 1900kg so already we are around half a ton heavier than the common tool hire diggers such as the JCB 8014 which is only 1400kg. This heavier machine lets you work harder and faster getting the job done quicker. Again all of our mini diggers are fitted with extras such as a long reach dipper for extra digging depth, a quick hitch to save lifting and dragging buckets, auxilary piping for hydraulic breakers or augers for fence posts, sign posts or trees, 2 speed travel, expanding tracks for greater stability and expanding dozer blades.


3 Ton Excavators


Our Bobcat E26 3 ton Diggers are an end user spec of 3 ton excavator so you will get the extras that make the job easier when you hire a digger such as a fully glazed heated cab, wider tracks for greater stability, self levelling dozer blade, twin speed travel, auxillary piping for hydraulic breakers and augers from 6" upto 36", an in cab radio and most importantly a quick hitch as no one wants to be lifting 3 ton buckets on site


Hi Tip Tracked Barrows


The JCB HTD5 Dumpster is only 690mm wide yet it can carry half a ton of muck and tip 1450mm high into a skip. This small skip loading dumper is the ideal partner for the micro excavator on the smaller job or where access is limited.


1 Tonne Skip Loaders


A 1 tonne High tip skip loading dumper takes all the hard work out of loading skips. Skip loaders are narrow and have folding roll over protection so that they can access those tighter spaces. All of our dumpers for hire have hydrostatic drives meaning that you dont have any problematic awkward clutches, gear systems and nasty levers to contend with, just select forwards or reverse on the control panel near the steering wheel and the the dumper do the rest. For safety our machines have electronic handbrakes and come to a stop when you release the throttle pedal.


3 Tonne Dumpers


Our 3 Tonne power swivel dumpers are the general building site workhorse. Just like our skip loading dumpers the 3 tonne dumpers are all hydrostatic drive with just a forwards/reverse switch, electronic braking systems and they also have the extra power swivel option to make discharging the waste easier and safer.


Twin Drum Rollers


We run the Bomag BW80 ride on roller and Bomag BW120 Tandem Ride on rollers. Our rollers are late models with the latest electronic control systems to allow you full control over the rollers performance. They are all equipped with water spray systems and joystick controls.


Excavator attachments


We have hydraulic breakers suitable for all sizes of excavator on our fleet and also a range of hydraulic augers from 6" right uoto 36" which have the capacity to drill upto 4m deep if required.
