At S&J Essex plant hire, we have a extensive range of diggers and dumper trucks in our plant hire stock that can be hired out with a trained operator, who will have years of experience of operating heavy machinery on building sites. We have diggers that are small enough to manoeuvre through a standard doorway yet still powerful enough to carry out all the tasks you need it to. Plus, we also have a wide range of dumper trucks available for hire too, which are essential for carrying and dumping large loads of rubble and soil from the digger.


Why You Need a Driver for Operating Plant Equipment

Self drive digger hire without a driver is not something that we would recommend. The name ‘mini digger or micro diggers’ can be somewhat misleading, as mini diggers are far from small. The smallest digger we have weighs about the same as a large dairy cow and can be very dangerous piece of plant hire in inexperienced hands. By having an experienced driver to control the digger, you will also save yourself the time it would take to learn the controls of the digger. Our drivers will know exactly how to operate the plant machinery and won’t have wasted any time, which can impact on how much work you get done! Our Essex plant hire operators know exactly how much space the digger hire needs to operate and will be able to fit the digger through the narrowest gaps and work in the smallest spaces possible for that digger.

What Size Mini Digger Do You Require?

Our most popular Essex plant hire models of digger are the 0.75 tonnes and the 1.5 tonnes diggers. The 0.75-tonne micro diggers are so small that they can fit through a standard sized doorway or gate, negating the need to remove any walls or fence panels to get the digger on to a site. Despite its small size, it can still excavate up to 1.5 metres and only needs a limited amount of space to do it, so no need for other plant machinery. This size of plant machinery is perfect for any site that has hard to reach areas, although the smaller size of the 0.75-tonne digger may mean that digging and the removal of the waste produced may take a little longer.

Plant Hire For Bigger Jobs

For plant hire jobs that are slightly larger, the 1.5-tonne digger may be more appropriate. It cannot access spaces quite as hard to reach, but it only needs a 40-inch gap to fit through. It can excavate up to 2.3 metres in depth making it a great choice of plant machinery for any utility works or for the removal of old tree trunks and roots for your project. Both the 0.75 tonnes and the 1.5 tonnes diggers can be used with breaker attachments. Digger hire can be used to break up concrete paving, making them indispensable for jobs involving the removal of old driveways or unwanted swimming pools.

It is essential for your budget that you hire the right size of plant machinery for your particular site. If your digger is too small, it won’t do the job effectively. Don’t be tempted to save money by hiring a small digger because the job will take longer and will cost you more in the long term. By using a digger that is too small, you could put any workers on your construction site in danger and the mini digger may be unstable.

Equally, it is important that you don’t hire a digger that is too big because it may not have enough room to manoeuvre and could cause damage to your site and neighbouring properties, which could be incredibly expensive to repair and would cause a major dent in your budget. A reputable plant hire company like us will advise you on the right type of mini digger hire Essex for your project.
