Below, we highlight seven key pieces of equipment from our extensive selection, each accompanied by insights into their versatile uses and applications.

  1. Mini Excavators: Our mini excavators are a powerhouse in a compact form, perfect for residential landscaping, small construction projects, and utility work. They’re easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces and ideal for digging pools, trenching for pipes, and excavating patios. With a variety of different options, you’ll easily find the best excavator for your job.
  2. Skid Steer Loaders: A versatile tool in any construction arsenal, skid steer loaders or bobcats are excellent for earth moving, landscaping, and roadwork. They’re adept at clearing debris, grading land, and moving construction materials, making them indispensable on varied job sites. Some of our most popular excavation & equipment hires in Melbourne are bobcats – Check out our mini bobcat and midsize bobcat.
  3. Trenchers: Trenchers are essential for digging trenches quickly and precisely. They’re ideal for laying pipes, installing drainage, and preparing for electrical lines. Their precision and speed make them a go-to for irrigation installations and utility work in both urban and rural settings. Our chain trencher is a dedicated machine for heavy-duty trenching tasks, whilst our Dingo with a trencher attachment is more versatile and suitable for lighter, smaller-scale trenching needs (along with other various tasks facilitated by different attachments).
  4. Post Hole Diggers: These diggers are vital for fence building, landscaping, and constructing decks. They dramatically reduce the effort and time required for digging holes for posts, tree planting, and creating foundations for small structures like mailboxes or signs. We have plenty of options, from a Dingo with an auger attachment, an excavator with an auger attachment, a mini one-man auger, a two-man auger, a one-man auger with hydraulic drive, a manual auger and a manual post hole cleaner.
  5. Wheelbarrows: Essential for material transport, these are perfect for moving soil, gravel, and garden waste. They’re indispensable in landscaping, gardening, and during the initial phases of construction projects, providing an efficient means of moving materials across the worksite. Check out our motorised wheelbarrow or our tracked motorised wheelbarrow. These are the perfect earth moving equipment hires for small job sites in Melbourne.
  6. Rock Breakers: Designed for breaking through rock, concrete, and asphalt, rock breakers are essential for demolition, site preparation, and excavation. They’re also used in mining and quarrying, efficiently tackling hard materials to clear the way for construction and landscaping tasks. Check out our excavator with a rock breaker attachment (available with other attachments) or our excavator attachment with rock breaker that’s compatible with our range of 3.5 ton excavators.
  7. Loaders: Ideal for earth moving, landscaping, and construction, these machines excel in transporting heavy materials, clearing construction sites, and aiding in bulk earth removal. They are indispensable in landscaping, small infrastructure projects, and commercial construction sites. Check out our lightweight mini loader, narrow access tracked mini loader or our tracked mini loader.
