Mini diggers or mini excavators, play a major part in many construction projects in places like Stratford, Essex. They are powerful, versatile and can perform a number of important tasks such as digging, boring and breaking. These days they are technically advanced and designed to the highest standards, which makes them a little pricey to buy. This is why many people choose the more preferable option of hiring this heavy plant machinery.
Although extremely powerful and functional, mini diggers are renowned for causing less damage to the ground. Their lighter weight is the reason for this and their compact size means they can be used in areas that would not be accessible for larger machines. The more compact versions of mini excavator may even be transported through standard front doors and hallways to the garden.
Standard excavators are simply not suitable for some jobs, and can even be detrimental to the project. Mini diggers are ideal for builders carrying out work on a smaller scale, and will get the job done in no time. They are also less expensive to hire, meaning cost savings to pass on to the customer. These compact machines can be operated and manoeuvred more easily too, and will fit onto the back of a pick up truck.
There are a range of attachments available for mini diggers, making them versatile and functional for a variety of tasks. They make less noise than bigger machines, which is an advantage when working in residential parts of Stratford. Projects which involve substantial amounts of digging would take much longer if embarked on manually. These vehicles are exceptionally efficient, and offer reduced risk of injury, as thy take the brunt of the hard work.
Mini diggers from major manufacturers like Kubota and Hyundai are excellent for a number of jobs on construction sites or around the home and garden. They can handle all kinds of tasks such as digging holes, creating trenches, removing tree stumps, demolishing, excavating for garden ponds and ploughing snow. Of course any work that needs to dig down into the ground should not be undertaken until certain checks have been performed.
These include finding out whether or not there are any gas pipes, water pipes, fibre optic cables or power cables present. Mistakes here can be costly and dangerous, so it pays to be sure. It’s also best to ascertain the width and depth measurements of your intended digging area. Building a basement extension and levelling a garden are dissimilar to each other and require different equipment items.
You might want to question the ground conditions where your project is located, as this can affect the depth you need to dig. Hard ground for instance may call for a more powerful digger. If you want to break up concrete or tarmac, a hydraulic hammer attachment will probably be needed. Does the work site have enough space to accommodate your chosen digger? Are there any restrictions such as special permits if working on a busy road?
