Wet and Dry Hire Excavator and Truck Combo Rates

Rates for Excavator & Truck Combos

Excavator and Truck combos can be procured on both wet hire terms (inclusive of operator and fuel) and dry hire (exclusive of operator and fuel) and as mentioned, often include a bobcat or skid steer loader in a set of 3 powerful earthmoving rigs. Wet hire - which is where a qualified operator manages both the truck and the excavator (and the skid steer) - is more prevalent in the combo hire space. Dry hire is less frequent, but some providers offer this option provided you can demonstrate some past experience with operating machinery yourself or some assurances that you have a trained operator on site already.

Here are the standard hire rates (please note, these are estimations, regional variations apply, and GST is excluded):

Combo TypeAvg. Dry Hire Rates (per hour)Min. Dry Hire HoursAvg. Wet Hire Rates (per hour)Min. Wet Hire Hours
