Micro diggers are small excavators ideal for working in tight and compact spaces.
These mini machines are perfect for DIY enthusiasts new to operating equipment and want to replace the strenuous work of using a spade and wheelbarrow with a faster and less physically demanding option.
Additionally, they can go through doorways and other narrow spaces due to their small size. Micro diggers are helpful for landscaping, construction, and other outdoor projects that require digging or excavation in confined spaces with height and width restrictions.
You can hire micro diggers for one day, two days, over a weekend, and weekly.
Transport options for micro digger hire may vary depending on your chosen plant hire company.
The maximum distance for delivery and collection of micro diggers may vary depending on your rental company. As a rule of thumb, plant hire companies will deliver within a 35-mile radius of the depot, and delivery costs range from around £30.00 to £50.00 each way.
Most plant hire companies offer trailer hire for their micro diggers, which is often a more convenient and cost-effective option for the plant hirer.
