The difference between operated and non-operated self-drive plant hire is that an operated plant comes with an experienced operator, and a self-drive machine requires you to operate the machinery.
The plant hire company usually provides an experienced operator responsible for operating the machinery or equipment.
On the other hand, non-operated or self-drive plant hire refers to the rental of machinery or equipment without an operator. In this case, the renter is responsible for operating the machinery or equipment or hiring an operator separately.
The main difference between the two is that operated plant hire provides the convenience of having an experienced operator. In contrast, non-operated plant hire requires the renter to have the necessary skills and experience to operate the machinery or equipment.
To ensure that operated plant drivers are qualified and competent to operate the machinery or equipment safely, they should have the appropriate tickets and qualifications.
The type of machinery or equipment you operate and the country or region may determine the required operator tickets.
