How it works

A dingo hire is the easiest way to complete all your landscaping, digging, earthmoving, trenching, and soil levelling projects. A dingo is essentially a mini-excavator that can be easily manoeuvred and used for excavation work around any work site. They are also very economical when it comes to home excavating. They are also referred to as a mini loader, little bobcat, or a Kanga. Mini loaders and little bobcats are apt descriptions for the dingo because that is what it is, it is a small excavator that can be attached with drillers, trenchers, blades, etc. depending on the job.

A dingo normally has wheels but, in many cases, a dingo might have to work on uneven terrain. Therefore, a dingo with wide wheels, similar to the ones used on tractors, will do the job. There are also dingos with turf wheels or sand wheels which can be used for various purposes. Dingos also come with a platform on its back which allows the operator to stand on.

A dingo is considered to be multi-purpose because of its ability to have attachments. Some of the dingo’s most popular attachments are a blade that can be used for soil-levelling, bucket scoops for transportation of soil, a mini-forklift that can move various objects, and an irrigation tool to dig small trenches for laying irrigation lines. There also other attachments like rotary hoes, post hole drillers, jackhammers etc.

One of the advantages of a dingo hire is its size. Due to its small size, it is easy to transport a dingo on a trailer. It can also gain access to small and tight spaces which bigger machines cannot. Dingos work great with pushing dirt or other loose soils, but when it comes to medium-sized rocks or clay, then you might consider going for bobcat hire or excavator hire. Additionally, because of its small size, there is also a limit on the maximum weight that it could carry at a time. If you are dealing with tonnes of construction aggregate, sand or snow then rather than a dingo hire it might be faster if you choose to go with a tipper truck hire or another truck hire as they are built for such scenarios.

If you are a contractor and are looking for a dingo hire or a kanga hire, you can find many online and offline suppliers. But there are a lot of pros and cons you should consider before hiring a supplier. Factors to consider include your ability to trust the contractor, the going daily rate to hire the machine and the timely delivery of the dingos etc. Hence it can be a tiring process. But it is not. With iSeekplant, a dingo hire is just a few clicks away.

Why should you use iSeekplant?

Plant hire can be a costly process. It generally costs around 20% to 30% of the total project spend, resulting in lesser profits. Apart from this, onsite plant requirements can be urgent, and any delay in acquiring the necessary equipment will lead to a delay in the project, which again affects the net profits. With iSeekplant’s vast supplier network, affordable options and 30 minutes response times, you can not only optimise the process but also end up saving a lot of time and money. We have over 8,000+ listed suppliers with over 180,000+ machines and construction plant listed.

Dingo Loader FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right dingo loader for your job

1. What is a dingo loader?

Dingo loaders are mini diggers that come in a variety of models and a wide range of attachments. Dingo loaders are well-equipped to service earthmoving and digging projects. Primed with narrow access ability, dingo loaders are compact hydraulic powerhouses that can successfully accomplish a variety of tasks. This comfortable and astute machine could be the option for you.


2. What is a dingo loader used for?

Dingo loaders are ideal for those intricate and time-sensitive projects, or those with access restraints that prohibit the effectiveness of traditional loaders. Be it earthmoving, landscaping, soil levelling, trenching or post hole digging, dingo loaders can complete the work on a variety of terrains with their wheel and tracked options. These loaders are trusted machines in mines, factories and smelters.


3. How much does dingo loader hire cost?

Depending on your needs, the cost of dingo hire varies. For example, a smaller dingo conducting soil levelling may cost between $90 and $125 per day. The price changing features include the dingo’s size, time of hire (i.e. weekday or weekend) and wet or dry hire. Likewise, attachment costs vary too with blade attachments costing approximately $40 and post hole diggers costing approximately $90.


4. Do I need a licence to operate a dingo?

The answer is not overly straight forward. No certification or licence is needed if you are hiring a dingo loader for use in a non-commercial DIY project on private property, although a machine supplier will brief you on safety and general operational use.

On the other hand, typical commercial jobs require you to demonstrate that you have the adequate skills and experience to operate a dingo loader at the time of hire. The dingo loader hire companies are responsible for providing operators with the adequate information, training, instruction and supervision. It is essential that dingo loaders are appropriately used to minimise safety risks.

The only time you will require a licence for dingo loader operation is during dangerous projects such as demolition and asbestos removal. In this case, a High-Risk Work Licence is required.


5. Is a dingo easy to operate?

Dingo loaders are user friendly with great visibility and simplistic controls. There are only four controls in most cases - two controls to steer and two controls to adjust the attachment. The most important thing to be aware of is the requirement of wearing the appropriate safety gear, plugs, specs and gloves. Attachments are also quite easy to change over should you require multiple for your project.
