What is the right excavator for your job?

Deciding which is the right excavator to hire for the job is often the hardest part of the hire process. Excavators come in all shapes and sizes with a range of purposes to make your life on site easier. From long reach excavators to compact excavators we can help you decide which excavator you need to hire. Excavators are one of the most prevalent construction machines in the industry, so finding and hiring the one you need isn’t a difficult process. The main problem you will find is availability, one day you may be able to get an excavator to site in an hour and another day all excavators may be booked out for a week. If you need to hire an excavator with an operator, which is called ‘wet hire’ in the industry, availability can vary even more.

We have come up with a few key questions you need to answer that will help you decide which is the right excavator for your job.
