2.7 ton Mini Digger Hire Pembrokeshire - Ideal for home projects

We're always pleased to be able to serve our customers on our doorstep in Pembrokeshire. As a family run business, although we've been involved in many large commercial projects around Wales and the UK. We always like to be able to serve the clients that got us to where we are today. 

Solar Park Reclamation Contract in Cardiff

We recently won a new land reclamation and remediation contract taking us away from our base in Pembrokeshire to the welsh capital of Cardiff. As a specialist excavation company that pride ourselves in the land and groundwork we carry out, to win another solar farm contract was great news to us.

Flail Mowing and Hedge Cutting Contract

We recently undertook a new contract at the end of the Summer 2017 for new clients at the Puma Energy refinery in Milford Haven. This new contract saw us undertake flail mowing and hedge cutting on the fuel refinery site plus using a 6 tonne excavator on hire from ourselves.


A Harden & Sons supply their range of excavators on a wet hire basis meaning each machine comes complete with a trained - experienced driver who can save both time and money on excavating your project. Our modern fleet of Doosan Excavators include both mini diggers together with mid to large excavator ranging up to 30 tonne.

As a company that's based in the great county of Pembrokeshire, we have undertaken a range of project for clients that have included both commercial customers for refinery work and highways projects including the building of new footpaths, roadways and kerbing and pedestrian access in and around the centre of Haverfordwest.

Other projects have seen our mini diggers being used on the expansion of Withybush hospital where we excavated areas for the laying of utilities including telephone, electrical and other communication cables for utility companies.

Another reason to choose our Plant Hire service is that all machinery is very new and in some cases, brand new, which saves customers down time on old machinery.

Why are your diggers supplied with a driver?

Our modern and unique fleet of Doosan diggers are fitted with Steelwrist tiltrotators which have to be supplied with a driver who is trained to use these extra pieces of machinery. The fundamental benefits of having our mini diggers over a standard digger are that with the operator being able to dig and tip from any angle, countless hours are saved in avoiding the necessity of moving and repositioning the machine to effectively and safely dig or grade whatever is required.

Does this mean you are more expensive?.

In short, yes but only slightly and this due to the specialist attachments on our machines. However, over the course of a self drive mini digger hire from any leading hire centre, our drivers and machines can excavate, reinstate or landscape areas at double the speed of a standard excavator, thus in the long run you do save money by reducing time and labour costs.

We cover all areas of Pembrokeshire from Fishguard to Pembroke and Tenby to St Davids; so where ever you are based, no matter how remote - we can undertake any project you have in mind from the foundations of a new conservatory or extending a new driveway all the way through to farming and agricultural work including cow tracks and milking parlor construction. Our Plant Hire services are also available for any period of time so contact us to discuss your needs.
