If you’re looking to renovate your garden, there are a variety of tasks that may require some digging work such as levelling ground, removing debris, or digging over and filtering soil. These tasks can be back-breaking, time-consuming, and expensive if done by hand. That’s why hiring a mini digger and driver for a day is a cost-effective solution to get the job done efficiently and quickly. Here are some reasons why:
1. Speed and efficiency
With a mini digger, you can get your garden project completed quickly and efficiently. Mini diggers can easily move soil, rocks, and debris from one area to another in a matter of minutes. They are powerful and can complete tasks that may take several days or even weeks to complete by hand. This means that you can save time and money by getting the job done faster.
2. Reduced labour costs
Hiring a mini digger and driver for a day is a cost-effective solution compared to hiring a team of labourers to do the job by hand. When you hire me and my mini digger, you’re only paying one rate for all the digging work – and a mini digger can do the work of several labourers in far less time. If you need the spoil moved – e.g. in wheelbarrows to a skip or a pile for a grab lorry to collect – you can either work with me to do that or I can provide an extra labourer.
Either way, me and my mini digger will get far more work done in one day than someone digging by hand could in weeks – and works out much more cost-effective as a result.
Mini diggers aren’t just for digging! Using my riddle and rake bucket, I can effectively filter/sieve the soil of roots, rocks, and other debris, so you’re left with lovely topsoil. Digging by hand will never achieve the level of filtering possible with a mini digger, so if your ground is full of stones and roots, a mini digger is the best choice for making it usable.
4. Better results
Hand digging can be a tedious and time-consuming task, and there is always the risk of uneven ground or lumps in the soil. With a mini digger, you can achieve a level, smooth finish that would be impossible to achieve by hand. This means that you will have a better-looking garden that is easier to maintain in the long run.
Using a mini digger is clearly more efficient than digging by hand, but perhaps you’ve considered hiring just the mini digger and doing it yourself?
While the day rate for just a mini digger will clearly be less than hiring a mini digger and operator, it’ll be far less cost-effective (unless you’re an experienced mini digger driver, of course).
The controls might look simple, but using a mini digger effectively and efficiently takes a lot of skill – and ultimately, they’re dangerous pieces of plant equipment, weighing nearly a tonne. Unless you’re experienced with driving diggers, you’ll end up paying more in the long run by needing to hire it for longer or getting a digger driver in to finish the job afterwards.
Save your time and money, and get the best job possible
In conclusion, hiring a mini digger and driver for a day is a cost-effective solution for all your garden excavation needs. With the speed, efficiency, versatility, and better results that a mini digger can provide, you can achieve your desired results in less time and at a lower cost than hand digging. So why not consider hiring a mini digger for your next garden project?
