Mini Excavator Dry Hire Price Breakdown
If you’re looking to hire a mini excavator, then you are usually in the market to hire an excavator that is between 1.7 to 5 tonnes in overall tare weight. Mini diggers are used across many construction sites - but are most commonly found in residential projects and landscaping because of their tight-access abilities. Most residential jobs around an established home can be done sufficiently with a mini excavator. Mini excavators can be hired very affordably on dry hire. Even in residential jobs, it's rare that a plant hire company will hire you a machine on a dry hire basis for less than a day, because of the time and effort it takes to mobilise that machine to site.
Other possible costs involved in hiring a mini excavator:
- Extra attachments such as augers or hammers
- Ground Engaging Tools - Wear & Tear
