Mini Excavators/Diggers

Hire mini excavators at your local Hirepool branch. We’ve got a range of mini excavators depending on the requirements of your DIY or commercial job.

Hire a mini excavator

Mini excavators are handy to efficiently and safely work, especially on narrow job sites. Make your next project more time efficient and cost-effective. With 4 compact options to hire from, our mini excavators work best on even or level ground and come with a variety of digging and cleaning buckets. Make sure that you speak to us about the specific details of your landscaping or gardening project so our team can offer the best advice.

Perfectly suited to urban areas, these excavators are ideal for digging trenches, foundations or holes on your property or job site.

Our mini excavators are easy to transport, with trailer options available. Sizes range from 0.9 to 1.8 tonne excavators to help manage site access and different landscaping jobs. Unsure if your vehicle can tow it? Give our team a call to discuss.

Depending on your worksite, we offer standard and limited tail swing options, so you’ll be able to fit it in narrow spaces.

If you’re working on a smaller site with limited room for movement, you should check out our 1.5 to 1.7 tonne, limited tail swing excavator. Limited tail swing refers to the position of the cab, reducing the chances of hitting obstacles with the back end of the excavator when slewing the boom around.

For larger sites, take a look at our 1.8 tonne standard tail swing, towable excavator. While still compact, it provides a deeper digging depth and digging force.


Operating a mini excavator

All of our equipment comes with safety and operating instructions. This can be given to a site supervisor and viewed by the intended operator, or if doing the job yourself, our instructions are clear and simple to follow. If you have further questions, ask at your local Hirepool branch.

What excavator do you need for your job?

Excavators or diggers are a common piece of equipment that’s used in construction on a day-to-day basis. They’re built for heavy duty digging and hauling - whether it’s gravel or debris you’re trying to move, an excavator will be able to move it quickly and without too much effort. An excavator isn’t just used on construction sites though, and can be helpful in achieving your more ambitious DIY projects on your property too.
