Look around any of the many exciting construction sites in the Colchester area and you’re sure to find a variety of mini diggers dotted around here and there. That’s because mini diggers are so versatile and helpful: from clearing out earth to laying foundations, they’ll come in handy for all sorts of tasks.
At Rhinos, we’ve purposely designed our mini excavator fleet to suit any Colchester construction job whether large or small. Our tiny 0.8 ton diggers from Kubota are known for their strong torque, so they’ll be useful for all kinds of work. They come with a decent width of 700mm, and an excellent digging depth of 1720mm.
If you need something with a mid-range level of firepower, why not check out the 3.5 ton model? This one is well-regarded thanks to its productivity, and with a digging depth of 3,350mm, it’s hardly a surprise. For very large jobs, meanwhile, the Kubota KX080-4 with its height of 2,540mm is perfect for getting difficult tasks completed.
We recognise that the answers to the question of what kit to buy for your Colchester construction job might not have an easy answer, and that’s why we’ve trained our customer team to help answer any questions you might have. Just give them a call and they’ll be on hand to help you.
No digger is complete without a decent set of attachments. At Rhinos, we have all kinds of add-ons in stock designed to help you get maximum value for money from your mini excavator – so you’re sure to find what you need.
First off, our hydraulic breakers are highly popular. They come from Atlas Copco, so you’ll always be able to rely on them. They’re extremely tough, so they won’t let you down – and they can be used alongside most of the mini excavators in our fleet. Pulverisors are also great options, and are chosen by lots of Rhinos clients for their demolition and processing skills. If you’re dealing with reinforced concrete, this add-on for your digger is one of the best possible options out there. And if you’re working with timber, why not ask to hire one of our grapples?
It’s all systems go at the University of Essex’s campus in Colchester at the moment. Building works are happening across the area, which is located near Wivenhoe Park.
In August and September, for example, the university will be adding PV – or photovoltaic solar – panels to buildings across the campus, so there’ll be some new sights for students returning after the summer break. Concrete cleaning will be going on across Squares 3 and 4 at the university between August and September, meanwhile.
Three accommodation blocks will be getting their outdoor areas improved in the summer, too. The Walton, Frinton and Brightlingsea accommodation blocks will see new plants and paved areas, which will in turn enhance the look of the area. And there’ll be new double glazing in one of the reading rooms at the university’s iconic Albert Sloman Library – which will in turn help keep out noise once students are back.
