Mini excavators are a common sight on building sites, civil engineering locations and even at domestic sites undergoing DIY work. But we know that finding the right mini excavator can sometimes be tough, especially if you’re on a job which requires lots of different excavation tasks. That’s why we stock various types of digger, so that you can get the specific functions you need. Take our smaller diggers, which range from 0.8 tonnes to 3 tonnes in size. Or look at some of our larger excavators, which start at 3.5 tonnes in size and go as large as 8 tonnes.
Some of our diggers have handy additional functions, like Common Rail Systems (CRS) or Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) mufflers. We also have a range of attachments for you to hire. Hydraulic breakers from Atlas Copco are known for being tough, while grapples are handy if you come into contact with materials such as timber while working on your Chelmsford building site. And with other accessories such as buckets, augers and more all available, you’ll be able to get those particular jobs completed with ease.
Amongst our range of high performance, heavy plant you will find the Manitou Buggiescopic, which ticks a large number of boxes! These machines are excellent for getting into tight or restricted spaces and can turn quickly and easily. This means they are great for use in rough terrain, urban or congested construction sites, doorways, narrow aisles and material depots. Areas with low ceilings or limited access are also no problem for this vehicle, as their overall height is 2m. This allows work in underground car parks, agricultural buildings and basements in Chelmsford.
Its telescopic boom gives it an edge over similar trucks with a maximum forward reach of 2.70 m, ideal for loading bulk materials into a lorry or receptacle while avoiding obstacles. This is a handy function when manoeuvring stacked pallets too, providing functionality and versatility. The ‘switch and move’ one hand joystick brings simplicity of handling, letting you get the job done in no time. Our reasonable hire rates are competitive too, and wont break the bank.
