    Compact diggers with 2490mm dig depth & 3060mm dump height

    These compact 3-tonne diggers have the longest reach of any digger in their class. The small footprint and powerful performance make them ideal for small to medium digging jobs, such as underground installations, landscaping, moving and loading materials, and more. These 45-litre diggers are high quality, economical, and efficient. They offer a 2490mm dig depth and a 3060mm dump height, ideal for extensive excavations and unloading into skips or lorries.

    These 3T conventional style excavators are easy to run, using an intelligent control system. This system includes a digital display monitor that updates you with vital information concerning safe and effective operation. They are also equipped with warning indicators for engine, fuel, temperature, and oil faults, a service mode that enables accurate troubleshooting, standard engine rpm indicators, hours used, and more.

    The efficient design incorporates a compact size with a large operator cab and all-round visibility. These diggers are ideal for digging in tight spaces and have a minimal tail swing. The cab is comfortable, secure, and safe. It features adjustable suspension seats with more legroom, seatbelts, wrist rests, ROPS, and FOPS. They have 18% reduced overhang while maintaining stability, ensuring that you can see more of the work field in confined areas.

It looks like some of the fields are invalid. Please check them and try again.

From 1st April 2022, our suppliers will only fuel machines with white diesel. This is due to new government guidelines.

If you, as the hirer, refuel any equipment while it is in your possession, it must be with WHITE DIESEL.


If you return a machine refuelled with rebated diesel, suppliers will have to remove and dispose of the fuel. They must also flush the tank and supply lines before they can refuel them. The process is chargeable, with no exceptions.
