8T Excavator Dry Hire

8 Tonne Overview

More power and lower running costs are just some of the advantages of Solution Plant Hire’s 8 tonne excavators for dry hire. They have all the strength you need for bigger excavation jobs and the versatility to operate in compact spaces. Our 8 tonne machines have a longer blade for increased stability on slopes and piles, a boom type for every need, a short tail and front swing radius for working in confined spaces and a fuel saving auto-idle system that reduces engine speed after a period of inactivity.

They come with a certified ROPS/FOPS air conditioned cabin, a choice of 300mm, 450mm and 600mm digging buckets with teeth, a 1200mm batter bucket with bolt on edge, plus all the safety features including emergency stop buttons, working lights, rear view camera, travel alarm and all safety decals and equipment. They also have the same cab as larger excavators, meaning more room and comfort for the operator.

Why Dry Hire?

Earthmoving equipment isn’t cheap, so if you only need a machine temporarily or occasionally, hiring from us makes great business sense. We also look after all the running costs including service, maintenance, upgrades and compliance, so all you have to do is get in the driver’s seat and get the job done.

At Solution Plant Hire we take care of all paperwork before we deliver, including SWMS documents, risk assessments, inspection reports and service records. That means you’re fully compliant for whatever site you’re working on and backed by an expert team if you need us.
