DIYers and Expert Operators use our Mini Excavators
The machine is available for commercial operations and service logs can be supplied. But if you’re a first time operator, don’t worry because we can always help out. We provide instructions on how to operate the machine upon pick up. Added to that, we have helpful instructional videos on our website on the controls of the Mini Excavator.

Pick up and drop off times are extremely convenient. A mini excavator’s standard pick up time is at 6:30 am with drop off in the afternoon at 6 pm. The daily hire rates are extremely competitive as well. Full day hire starts at just $195 per day. Also, you may choose to hire for multiple days and keep the machine overnight at your own secure location.
2. Towing Requirements
The Mini Excavator comes on a trailer ready to tow away. If you prefer to pick up the machine, you need a vehicle with a braked towing capacity of 2 tonnes. More so, your vehicle won’t need an electric brake controller as our aluminium trailers have a mechanical braking system already installed.
You’re also required to have a flat seven-pin trailer plug for your lights. In addition, you can bring an adaptor to go from the flat trailer plug to your vehicle plug.
Otherwise, if you don’t have a vehicle with the towing requirements, you may choose to have the machine delivered. The standard rate is $45 for a radius of twenty-five kilometres from Karana Downs. We can deliver the machine further and these rates can be negotiated with our team.
