Our Attachment

OUR ATTACHMENTS AND BUCKETS WE HAVE FOR HIRE


ATTACHMENTS THAT COME AS STANDARD WITH OUR MINI EXCAVATOR HIRE

1100MM MUD BUCKET

The 1100mm mud bucket is mostly used for moving loose material in bulk. After material is excavated this bucket is great for loading the material or moving it faster due to its large load capacity. The mud bucket does not have any teeth so it can also be used to level areas. It will dig but the material does need to be loose. This bucket comes standard with all of our mini excavators and is included in the hire price.


450MM GP BUCKET

The 450mm GP (general purpose) bucket is an all-rounder, toothed, digging bucket. This bucket is great for general excavation where you have material that is compacted and hard and you need to dig out as much material as possible as fast as possible. This bucket comes standard with all of our mini excavators and is included in the hire price.


300MM GP BUCKET

The 300mm GP (general purpose) bucket is an all-rounder, toothed, digging bucket just like its bigger brother. This bucket is great for general excavation where you have material that is compacted and hard but you don’t want to remove more material than necessary, say for instance when digging a trench. This bucket comes standard with all of our mini excavators and is included in the hire price.


ONE TOOTHED RIPPER

The ripper (or tyne and shank) comes into its own with jobs such as tearing apart broken up concrete and removing tree stumps or loosening ground where toothed buckets struggle to penetrate. All of the mini excavator’s power is transferred into this single tooth making this attachment a very powerful tool. The ripper comes standard with all of our mini excavators and is included in the hire price.


ATTACHMENTS THAT ARE OPTIONAL EXTRAS WITH OUR MINI EXCAVATOR HIRE

HAMMER OR ROCK BREAKER

The hammer is used for tasks such as breaking up unwanted concrete and or rock. Note that for transport the hammer must not placed on our trailer as it will put the trailer over weight so it must be carried in the towing vehicle. We only allow the use of any hydraulic attachment on our machines that is supplied by us as we don’t know the condition of the fluid inside a third parties attachment. The hammer hire cost is $180 p/d ex GST.


AUGERS

Augers are used for drilling post holes, piers and the like. We have 300mm and 450mm augers. Note that for transport the auger driver and auger bits must not placed on our trailer as it will put the trailer over weight. We only allow the use of any hydraulic attachment on our machines that is supplied by us as we don’t know the condition of the fluid inside a third parties attachment. The auger driver and one auger bit hire cost is $75 p/d ex GST. If you want both auger bits add $25 ex GST p/d.


1000MM SIFTER BUCKET

These excavator buckets are known as either sieve buckets, sorting buckets, screening buckets, shaker buckets or skeleton buckets, these excavator sorting buckets are ideal for rock, bricks and rubble from soil and can reduce the amount of spoil needed to be taken off site. The 1000mm sifter bucket hire cost is $45 p/d ex GST.


150MM GUMMY BUCKET

Gummy buckets are used for digging near services such as water and or gas pipes. The lack of teeth make them safer to dig near services and less destructive.

The 150mm sifter bucket hire cost is $25 p/d ex GST.
