Diggermate welcomes first time users of our equipment. If that’s you, once you have booked on this page we recommend you watch our video tutorials prior to your day on the machine. If you have a job that is bigger than you want to do yourself we have several operators in each location so either one of our Diggermate team can come and do the job or we can find someone to do it for you. No job is too big or too small.
