How To Operate A Mini Excavator
Do you have a tight access earthmoving job? If so, often times you will need an excavator or a bobcat nimble enough to fit down the side gate, yet robust enough to get the job done efficiently. This is where Little Diggers steps in. All of our machines are designed specifically for, but not limited to these types of projects. Our machines tackle the big jobs, too.
You may need a mini-excavator to do things such as dig a trench, load soil onto one of our tipper trailers for hire, rip up old garden beds, dig a soak well or dig footings. It’s all made easy by Little Diggers
You may also find that you need a rock breaker smash up concrete, an auger to dig post holes or a limestone block-lifter to help build a retaining wall. We supply all of this equipment at some of the cheapest rates in Perth
