What else do you need?

When booking the hire of your 3 tonne mini digger, don’t forget to include those few extras you may need that we also stock and hire:

Breaker Attachment
Extra gas oil
Auger Attachment – this drills 6 to 42 in. diameter holes quickly and accurately and is ideal for installing fence posts, planting trees or digging footings.
Lifting Hitch Attachment
A Skip Loading dumper – see our page for more information on skip loading dumpers.
A 3 tonne dumper – perhaps you will be needing a larger dumper for your job – we have the 3 tonne dumper or swivel skip dumper.
Road Plates – for during and after digging, to ensure continued site access whilst excavations are still open.
Roller or Vibrating/Compactor plate – to level and compact any backfilling & reinstatement after the work has finished. Please choose from our rollers for hire.
