OUR EQUIPMENT
SMALL IN SIZE, BIG ON POWER

Introducing the Hitachi ZAXIS 17U digger. She’s simple to use, flexible
and reliable. We provide the digger on an easy to tow trailer, provide
a selection of buckets, and a water blaster to clean all equipment
before it's returned.


SAFETY COMES FIRST

While the digger is small, its hydraulic force is significant and can cause harm to people and property if not operated responsibly.

Before operating the digger, reading the safety instructions is a requirement of our hire agreement.

We also provide:

  • Two high visibility vests
  • One hard hat
  • Ear muffs
  • Eye protection

REMEMBER: IF YOU AREN'T COMFORTABLE WITH USING THE LITTLE DIGGER OR WANT ADVICE, WE'RE HERE TO HELP.


INSTRUCTIONS

The controls can look daunting at first, but after following some simple instructions to disembark the trailer, we encourage operators to see what each lever and control does. The diagrams below will help.
