Creating trenches or digging out footings are some of the less popular and least glamorous jobs in the construction process. These jobs are critical though, as preparation is the key to most projects, and can’t be skipped or rushed. When it comes to footings, ground which is solid and stable is required, and the footings also need precise placement. This sort of job is made easier by the use of diggers, and many professional companies use the services of Rhino Plant Hire. Mini diggers are a small example of what we offer as our choice of heavy and small plant is extensive.
As well as our heavy plant, we also have a vast range of small plant, tools and equipment for every need. Portable post hole borers are popular within landscaping or gardening projects in Colchester. They save time and effort and achieve neat and tidy results, even where the soil is not completely compacted.
The importance of hiring equipment and machinery from a reputable source should not be underestimated. Online reviews can be found which tell horror stories about components being held together with duct tape, and faulty equipment leaking oil into the boot of the customer’s car. This comes with a lax attitude to maintenance of tools and equipment, and can cause more serious issues than an oily boot!
Small tools underpin each building job and high quality is essential for the best outcome. Our properly serviced and maintained tools and equipment come from some of the biggest names in the business. These include drills, cutters, sanders and other precision tools from brands like Makita, Belle, Hilti and Bosch.
We offer a comprehensive selection of tools such as single lever control forward/reverse compactors for compaction of paving stones and trenches. Light duty impactors work by repetitively pummelling soil to leave a strong firm surface. Trench compactors are ideal for work involving sewer line and trench construction, earthworks and backfills and foundations. These tools take the tedium out of the job even in demanding situations, and faster results mean targets and budgets are adhered to. You might need a high frequency vibrating mechanical poker to deliver a smooth concrete mix, if so you will find it at Rhino’s
Our regular client base includes professionals carrying out local authority work, as well as builders and DIY enthusiasts
We have a range of tools for all kinds of gardening jobs, like rotavators, which may be adjusted depending on how rough or fine the soil is. They can perfectly mix manure and vegetable residue for vegetable gardening. Large clods of earth can be broken up easily, producing smooth beds for seed planting. This type of soil agitation and cultivation increases filtration and achieves a more fertile growing medium.
One Man or Two Man Post Hole Borers come in very handy when a powerful solution is needed for drilling holes in dense soil or clay. Fully portable they have reduced vibration handles, and will get the job done in no time. A variety of other gardening tools are available such as lawn scarifiers, stump grinders, hedge trimmers, turf cutters and lifters and shove holders.
