Sizes of Excavator

We have a wide range of plant equipment in our fleet, available to be hired at any time. Different machines are available at different prices, so you can choose the equipment most suitable for your hire needs at any time. Do you want to prioritise all-round visibility? Complete weight load? A small footprint? Demolition power? We have got the tools for the job available for hire, and you will not have to pay above the odds for it.

Our fleet includes demolition and excavator machine options for hire at sizes between 1 tonne and 14 tonnes, all available for delivery to your site with ease.

If your site is small or full of tight corners, a smaller tool might be ideal for your demolition or construction project. The smaller models in our company fleet are ideally suited for manoeuvrability around small areas and are often hired for small projects that we can deliver quickly.

Larger machine equipment can be overkill for a small location, and our plant hire service would recommend using these instead for really heavy-duty construction sites. 14-tonne excavators are usually hired for agricultural groundwork or major civil engineering projects!

Our excavator hire services are flexible, however, so if you are not sure what size plant you need to hire for your project, get in touch, and we will help you work out which excavators are right for your particular needs.


How Much Does It Cost to Hire an Excavator?

The costs of excavator hire vary significantly depending on the size of machines you are looking to hire and how long you need to hire them for. In general, though, plant hire might not be as expensive as you may be expecting.

Smaller excavators of around 1-ton capacity start from around £165 per week to hire, or £85 per day. In addition to the basic costs of plant hire, you will also need to factor in about £75 for delivery and the same again for pick up at the end, unless you want to go and pick up the machines yourself.

Excavator hire for larger machines, such as a 14-tonne excavator, will cost you more like £300 per day or £500 per week, plus £130-150 delivery and the same again for pick up. In general, excavator hire is much more expensive for larger machines, so it makes sense to hire the smallest model you can for your needs.
