Excavator hire can be straightforward if you know what you are looking for but it can be daunting if you are new to the game. You want to get it right. What machine should you choose and do you need any attachments? How many tons of machinery would be best for your project?

When it comes to choosing the right excavator to get your project done it can be important you select something that will fit into your location, that can handle the work you need to get done, and that won’t be too big or too small for the job.

At Aussie Excavator, we provide Brisbane excavator and equipment hire with operator. This is also known as wet hire. We deliver our machine to your site and provide you with a driver to get the work done. This ensures your work is completed efficiently and effectively, and that you limit the potential for safety accidents taking place on your site.

What factors should you consider when hiring an excavator? Here are a few of our top tips.

Identify Your Project Needs and Budget
 Excavators, like projects, come in a wide variety of sizes. You don’t want to choose a piece of machinery that really doesn’t suit what you need to get done. Are you demolishing a multi-storey building, or digging a hole for that long-awaited backyard pool? As a leading provider of earthmoving machinery in Brisbane for decades, our team can help you with your hiring decisions. We have eight types of excavators available for use. These include 1.5T, 3T, 6T, 8T, 10T, 14-16T, 20T, and 30T excavators.

What’s the difference? A 6-ton excavator can be perfect for digging a pool whereas a 20-ton excavator is a good choice for bulk excavation, grading land, excavating dam sites, and much more.

Consider Your Location
If you have tight spaces, or you’re working indoors, a smaller excavator like our 1.5 ton excavator can be ideal. This is the smallest model at Aussie Excavator and can more easily be manoeuvred in areas with little wiggle room.

In contrast, our 30 ton excavator delivers a large amount of power and can be best for more comprehensive jobs that require clearing bigger sections of land. This is our largest excavator available for wet hire. The dimensions of the location in which you plan really do to work matter, as you want to ensure your excavator can get in and out without any problems. Are there bushes or trees that may impede your entrance? Are their wires hanging low overhead? Examining your site and choosing the right size excavator to suit it can put you one step ahead.

Choose Your Attachments
Excavators come with an assortment of attachments to help you complete your project. You want to make sure you choose the best tool to meet your project needs. In general, attachments can be used to auger for post holes, drill, demolish, grade, lift, clear, and more.

Our attachments include rock breakers, rock grabs and rippers, blade and tooth buckets, brooms, and spreader bars. You can order your attachments with your machinery and have it all delivered to your site at once, or you can pay extra to have an attachment delivered separately. If you aren’t sure exactly what you might need, our team can help point you in the right direction.

From roadwork to landscaping, cleanup, trenching, excavating, and more, our Redlands excavator hire is ready for work.
