Operated plant hire in Sussex

Sussex Oak & Restoration are pleased to announce that we are now operating a range of diggers and dumpers, all available for hire complete with an experienced operator.

Why hire a digger with a driver?

This is probably the most common question people have about plant hire. If you are looking to do a small project in your garden, then why would you hire a driver instead of having a machine on its own?

In our opinion there are 3 main reasons for this:

  1. Speed

    If you have never operated a mini digger before then there is quite a steep learning curve before you are capable of using the machine to anywhere close to its full capability. By hiring in a machine complete with an experienced operator this is no longer an issue. In our experience our operated machines will do in one day what it would take an inexperienced operator 2/3 days to do. So overall it could work out more expensive to do it yourself.

  2. Accuracy-Being able to dig a trench with a flat bottom, or grade topsoil to a consistent level is a skill, and one that it is not quick or easy to acquire. By using an operator you don’t have to worry about this, they will have the skills to do this for you, leaving a good, consistent finish for you to work off.
  3. Safety-This is the most important element of all. Mini and micro diggers are inherently unstable, it does not take much to flip one over with potentially lethal consequences. Our operators know how to place the machine for maximum stability and they will also know the capabilities of the machine and be sure not to exceed them. This means a safer environment for all involved.
