Mini Digger Hire

1.5 tonne Mini Digger Rental

Kelsey Plant Hire’s versatile 1.5 tonne mini diggers will provide you with top digging performance and breakout force. You can work them in all kinds of grounds in the toughest conditions and you will quickly get your job done with ease.

You can enjoy extra stability and safety with our 1.5 tonne mini diggers with their expandable undercarriage design. When you choose to hire our little machine you will notice that you do not have to reposition as often whilst digging due to their impressive reach at ground level and their ability to dig close to their undercarriage.  This means you will benefit from greater productivity even in the tightest of spaces. A brilliant little powerhouse!

Additional features of our 1.5 tonne mini excavators:

  • Safe lifting capacity of 130kg (useful for site materials handling)
  • Excellent cost-effective fuel consumption
  • Cylinder-over-boom design (reduces risks of machine damage particularly when loading trucks)
