Hiring rates for Dingos can vary greatly depending on the model, location, and hire duration. The most common contract tenure is dry hire and usually, a full day is the minimum due to the overall hire charge being quite low. Dingos don’t really require a license to operate and are most frequently hired by weekend warriors on residential projects. Dingos can be operated by the general public with only a small amount of instruction.
You can still hire a Dingo on a wet hire agreement, and have someone come over and complete an earthmoving task at your instruction, it’s just less common. That said, don’t fear, with thousands of Dingos on our site, you shouldn’t have any problem finding one on wet hire. Here are some average rates based on market research in Australia:

So let’s get one thing straight: A Dingo is a mini loader. Dingo is a colloquial term for a mini loader, because Dingo is the most prolific brand of mini loader in Australia. That happens quite a bit in earthmoving, often machines get called by their brand rather than their technical name. We also have another category for Kanga Loaders - which are also mini loaders, and are the second most popular brand in Australia.
A mini loader is a very small wheel-mounted skid steer that you can stand on the back of, rather than sit inside the chassis. They are perfect for small to medium-sized tasks where space might be limited.
Just to confuse the issue, many of the earthmoving tasks that can be done with a Dingo can also be done with an excavator with an attachment or a skid steer loader, so think outside the box to get your job done, or reach out to our projects team on [email protected] or 1300 691 912 if you need help or your questions answered.
In Australia, several mini loader brands have earned their reputation for quality, reliability, and performance in the local market. At iseekplant, we are proud to offer a diverse range of top-quality brands that cater to various project requirements. From the renowned Dingo brand with its compact design to the sturdy mini loaders from Kanga, we have a wide variety of choices available to suit your needs. In addition to Dingo and Kanga, we also feature other notable brands like Toro and Vermeer, each offering a range of models with unique specifications.
