  • 1.5T Mini Digger

    Superior compact excavators

    Our 1.5T mini diggers offer a powerful digging force for excavating, landscaping, construction, and demolition. As they are compact, they allow for a wide working range, and they are suitable for domestic applications, roadside work, construction sites, and more.

    These mini diggers have a balanced arm and bucket, which allow you to dig quickly and efficiently, even in the most demanding conditions. They allow for a 2250mm digging depth, making them ideal for various tasks, such as excavating earth to moving material loads. These diggers have a boom swing angle of 75 degrees left and 60 degrees right, allowing you to dig and dump materials into excavations, dumpers, lorries, and more with ease. The boom cylinders are positioned topside and all pipes are integrated to avoid damage in the work field.

    These machines have a compact and convenient design that allows you to work almost anywhere, even in areas with limited amounts of access. The adjustable rubber tracks can be extended and retracted in seconds, allowing for widths of 1240mm for improved stability and 990mm when navigating through more confined spaces.

    Versatile Excavators

    User-friendly, intuitive & comfortable

    Our 1.5T mini diggers feature intuitive and straightforward levers and pedal controls. The controls, along with enhanced manoeuvrability, and a small working footprint, make the diggers easy to operate, even for users without experience. These mini diggers have spacious cabins designed to provide comfort to prevent fatigue. They offer plenty of legroom, with adjustable seats and heaters for defrosting and air ventilation for demisting. These cabins are also extremely safe, with a roll-over protective structure, tip-over protective structure, operator protective guard, and a seatbelt.

    A digital panel is installed in the cab for excellent visibility, one-touch button operation, time, hour meter, and tachometer displays. Warning lamps with code numbers alert you in case of any emergencies. The engine is reliable and also reduces exhaust emissions, noise, and vibration. These diggers have 21-litre fuel tanks and two speed travel, and the rugged tracks offer excellent traction across challenging and uneven surfaces, such as concrete, grass, soil, rocks, and gravel.

    Book Online - Available Nationwide

    Insurance is supplied

    Our 1.5T mini digger is bookable online. We follow up all online bookings with a call back to confirm documentation, complete a secure check of two forms of ID, and take a deposit of £500. A charge for diesel fuel is not included. We do supply the machine with a full tank, and we will charge you for the amount you have used at the end of the hire, which will be deducted from your deposit. If you refuel the tank, there will be no additional costs. We also provide suitable insurance to make sure you are covered when operating the digger. Insurance is included at the cost of £55, added to your booking at checkout.

    If you hold your own hired-in plant insurance, please contact our hire team to arrange your booking.

Saturday Same-Day Hire is only available as Click & Collect. If you require delivery/collection by us, please select Friday as the start date and Saturday as the end date (for no extra cost).



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.
