Good national plant hire service

I rented the mini digger near Ongar. Everything was really easy to arrange and the prices were great.

  • 0.8T Micro Digger Hire

    For excavation & landscaping jobs where space is limited

    Our 0.8T micro diggers are for ditching, grading, and trenching in areas where space is limited or access is restricted. They are ideal for domestic landscaping and construction and small to medium commercial applications. The micro diggers have an adjustable track gauge, which you control hydraulically with a single-lever operation. The track closes from 860mm to 700mm in seconds, and the machine is still operatable so that you can navigate it in confined spaces. With the tracks retracted, the digger can easily fit through standard doorways, gates, and corridors, allowing you to access buildings, plots, and gardens. When the tracks are fully extended, they offer 15% more stability, ideal for even surfaces or excavating tough materials.

    The front blade is also adjustable, and removing just one pin will enable you to instantly fold it down in size. The rollover protective structure (ROPS) also folds down, allowing you to pass through areas his lower overhead areas or transporting it on a lorry. For extra convenience, three lifting points enable a crane to lift the digger safely and securely.

    Powerful & User-Friendly

    An efficient & intuitive micro excavator

    These micro diggers feature a powerful and efficient diesel combustion engine. The engine is reliable and also reduces exhaust emissions, noise, and vibration. Its layout also puts most components within easy reach for faster maintenance. These diggers have 12-litre fuel tanks and a maximum travelling speed of 2km/h. They offer a digging depth of 1720mm and a boom swing angle of 55 degrees left and 60 degrees right. The versatile boom allows you to dig and dump materials into excavations, dumpers, lorries, and more efficiently. The boom cylinders and pipes are strategically placed and integrated to avoid damage in the work field.

    These micro diggers are easy to handle, featuring intuitive lever controls, foot pedals, enhanced manoeuvrability and a small working footprint. They are even suitable for operators with little experience. The driver has complete control of the unit to work safely and the robust tracks which allow them to operate effectively on challenging and uneven surfaces, including concrete, grass, soil, rocks, and gravel.

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.


An insurance charge will be calculated at checkout. If you have proof of your own Hired-In Plant Insurance (HIPI) and wish to opt-out of the insurance charge, you can do so by booking via Live Chat.

PayPal Pay-in-3


Spread the cost of essential tool hire

When an unexpected expense crops up and you need to get hold of different equipment, the costs involved can become a struggle. National Tool Hire don't think that anyone should have to wait when essential work and building improvements are needed, or when there's a passion project that needs indulgence.

To help our customers and make tool hire even easier, we've worked with PayPal to provide a way to spread the cost with PayPal Pay in 3. You can use Pay in 3 for eligible shopping cart amounts between £30.00 to £2,000.00. Terms apply.
