Wheely Great Plant Hire

One of the main uses of wheeled diggers is to be able to travel from site to site without the need to be loaded on a lorry, the councils often use them to clear roadside drainage for example. The other benefits of Wheeled Diggers is that with the backhoe they can act as a digger and a dumper with the large buckets on the front, but also come with a set of forks so they can move pallets around on site, the only negative is that they are heavy and the wheel can churn up a site and make a mess.

Our Wheel Diggers and Backhoe Loaders for hire will not leave you disappointed. Wheeled Diggers are great for getting more lift due to the stabilizers. Our Backhoe Loaders and Wheeled Diggers provide limitless manoeuvre across your site.

A Backhoe Loader is a Digger which features a bucket on the front and a backhoe on the back offering great stability whilst carrying out various tasks. Backhoes are great for construction sites, archaeological digs and more.

Backhoe Loaders can be used for varying tasks around any site. The backhoe bucket can be replaced with powered attachments serving limitless functionality.

Wheeled Diggers offer great versatility, matching the digging power of a tracked excavator whilst able to move the wheeled unit around your site with ease. You might not need that truck and trailer afterall.

We just know you’ll dig our excavators and we always aim to provide the best service possible when it comes to plant hire. All of our diggers conform to safety standards and are designed for ease of use and comfort whilst operating.
