Digger Hire – The Most Common Mistakes

Selecting a digger hire can be complicated because you must choose the best digger model for your particular construction project.


Unfortunately, many newbies believe all digger hires are the same and perform the same tasks, so they don’t focus on what they’re hiring. You don’t have to make these mistakes too.


Below are the top three most common mistakes to avoid when hiring a digger.


1) Oversized Digger Hires


People don’t always consider whether a particular digger hire will fit onto their worksite. For instance, if you hire a 10-tonne digger to help create a small in-ground swimming pool in your backyard, you may not have enough room on the site for the massive digger. You’d be better off hiring a mini excavator to accommodate your smaller project.


2) No Qualifications to Operate the Digger Hire


Some plant hire companies won’t include a complimentary digger operator with the proper licenses and qualifications. So if you don’t know how to operate a digger machine, you better find a plant hire company that provides a qualified digger operator with every hire. Bison Plant Hire is one company that does.


3) Not Enough Machinery


Diggers are valuable machines on a construction site, but they cannot do everything alone. You may need to hire additional machinery to assist the digger in its duties, such as a dumper, roller, or telescopic handler.
