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.

Our Fleet

As you may have already read on areas of our website, we operate a range of modern Doosan excavators which have multiple benefits to the end user - the customer.

Unlike some hire companies, we don't and never will send out on hire, plant machinery that's going to be unreliable, expensive to operate or unable to perform efficiently. Ultimately, this is an inconvenience to us never mind downtime to the customer in holding up the task in hand which will in some way, cost money.

There are 3 main divisions to the company, namely;-

  • Specialist Excavations Division
  • Earth Moving and Groundworks Division
  • Agricultural Services Division

Having started and founded the business with a 15 year old Pel Job, we since have grown to operate a modern and new fleet of Doosan Excavators with our Earth Moving and Groundworks division using Komatsu excavators. We also have at our disposal, JCB excavators, Terex Site Dumpers and Bomag Rollers.
