You may be wondering whether to hire a Mini Digger or Compact Excavator for your next construction project in Dunmow. These machines are versatile and ideal for a range of domestic or commercial tasks large or small. Mini Diggers are not as damaging to surfaces and surroundings, as some larger industrial machines. They can also be transported more easily by road, without the need for permits. The smallest versions may even be taken through the home to carry out work on the garden.
At Rhinos, we are committed to ensuring you get exactly what you need for your job. Our range of hire machinery, tools and equipment is available with a selection of handy accessories.
Mini Diggers are used for a wide variety of tasks such as creating trenches, digging holes, clearing waste, demolishing small structures, removing tree stumps and even ploughing snow. These jobs would be back breaking and time consuming were they to be undertaken manually. Companies would also possibly need to employ additional staff to get the work done. Of course certain bodies of work will require larger machines, but for most, a Mini Digger packs a sufficient punch.
We have a selection of Mini Excavator sizes and specifications ranging from 0.8 tonnes up to 14 tonnes. The manufacturers we favour are some of the most reputable international producers of high performance plant machinery. Kubota are a market leading name in Mini Digger design and technology. Our Kubota Mini Diggers have been used on major projects like the recent upgrades to Westminster Abbey.
Before embarking on any digging work, ascertain whether or not there are any cables, gas or water pipes located underground in the area. Any relevant providers should be contacted to get more information about this. You need to determine the depth you need to dig also, as building an extension or levelling a garden are completely different. Both may require different equipment for the best results, so it pays to hire the correct machinery.
Check the condition of the ground when hiring a digger, as soft ground may need to be dug deeper than firm ground. Extremely hard or heavy soil may require a higher digging force, and a hydraulic hammer attachment will break up or remove tarmac or concrete.
Find out also if there are any restrictions where you are planning to work, especially regarding using a mini digger. Check there is enough space to manoeuvre the machine comfortably. Most Mini diggers are perfect for use in areas that have limited space so there shouldn’t be any problems. Busy roads may need a permit though, so it would be wise to check.
Consider where the displaced soil will go as you work, maybe it could be placed nearby to create a rockery or similar. A dumper may help, and you can hire these also from Rhinos at reasonable prices. Rhinos are happy to advise our customers on any aspect of their hire, whether it be heavy plant machinery, tools or equipment. Just call our friendly team on 01277 372 626
