Revolutionary Attachments.

We have invested in what we believe is the best thing since the creation of the Mini Excavator, we are literally one of a handful of company in the U.K. who run this type of equipment on Mini and Midi Diggers.

Introducing the Engcon Tiltrotator Attachment 360 degrees rotation and tilts in all axises enabling our machines to reach the difficult to reach parts that you normally have to dig by hand.

“Imagine the flexiblity this adds to a machine, the machine now has the ability to move it’s buckets and attachments in the same way as a Human moves there wrists”.

Add into the mix the ability to run attachments such as Grapples, Hedge Trimmers, Brushcutters, Grading Beams, Compactor Wheels (Sheeps Foot) and Compaction Plates etc etc the list is endless.

Mini digger and CPCS driver excavating foundations.

The local builder used our services as we had been recommended as being “the best in our industry”, partly due to the fact of substantial investment in the latest mini diggers and the revolutionary Engcon Tiltrotating Equipment and attachments. Not forgetting our enthusiastic hard working time served Blue Card CPCS Mini Digger Operators.

It’s clear to see from the video the time savings that can be made with our equipment.

We was contracted by Adam a proprietor of a local reputable building company (A J CONSTRUCTION & MAINTENANCE) based in the West Midlands to grade off two driveways prior to his guys attending site to screed and lay two block paved driveways.
We have worked for Adam for quite a number of years on 100’s of jobs in and around the Midlands including Birmingham, Burton, Cannock, Hinckley, Lichfield , Walsall, Wolverhampton.

Driveway excavation.

Mini Digger and Driver Hire equipped with a Engcon Tiltrotating Attachment excavating a driveway for a local driveway paving company in the Midlands.

It is easy to see from the video how heavy lifting of the large stones was easily managed by the mini digger and therefore limiting the unnecessary risk of injury to persons on site.

"The Engcon concept makes our excavator's more efficient".

Engcon products have turned our excavator’s into a flexible tool carrying machine which has opened up capability that was once unimaginable.

They are all centred around the innovative tiltrotator – “our excavator’s wrist”. A flexible tool that provides our excavator’s with entirely new capabilities.

Our Mini and Midi Diggers with  tiltrotators can be equipped with all kinds of accessories and tools to optimise our services.

Add into the mix the ability to run attachments such as Grapples, Hedge Trimmers, Brush cutters, Grading Beams, Compactor Wheels (Sheeps Foot) and Compaction Plates etc etc the list is endless.

Changing between different buckets and attachments is so simple, efficient and quick and all without having to leave machine.

Time saving – Tiltrotator machine is on average 40% – 60% faster over a standard mini digger.

Labour saving – no more hand digging those awkward to get at areas.

Health and safety – no need to get in the trench to hand dig.

No more heavy lifting – with our Tiltrotator and Grapple combination.

Micro Digger & Operator Hire.

Micro digger hire for those jobs that have restricted access.

Our micro diggers are able to gain access through a standard doorway and have the ability to expand their tracks once past the obstruction.

We operate Bobcat E10z micro diggers, these weigh in at 1.2t as opposed to most micro diggers at 800kg, this makes a huge difference when it comes to power and the ability to progress the excavation at a considerably faster rate.

Available with a selection of buckets and a concrete breaker attachment.

Mini Tracked Dumper & Operator Hire.


Mini Tracked Dumper hire for those jobs that have restricted access.

Our mini tracked dumpers are able to gain access through a standard doorway / garden gate and are ideal to work with both our mini and micro diggers.

We operate the Yamaguchi WB06 Dumpers, these machines have the ability to lift the load straight into a skip so alleviating all the heavy lifting and/or running wheelbarrows up ramps into skips.

Our mini tracked dumpers have a carrying capacity of 600kg and can track at a rate of over 3mph.

Being tracked as opposed to having wheels means our dumpers have an incredible light footprint, these means we can track over wet ground without making ruts. This in turn reduces the amount of remedial / reinstatement work needed once the work is complete.


If you would like to speed your excavation works up, reduce the amount of labour onsite and reduce the damage a conventional wheeled dumper can cause then please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Mini Digger & Screening Bucket.

Mini Digger & Screening Bucket For Hire.

Saving £££s and the environment with our onsite screening solution.

Why pay for muckaway / grab hire and buy topsoil in when we can screen your very own soil on-site saving £££s and most importantly the environment.

We are striving to lower our carbon footprint every step of the way, look out for our mini concrete crusher appearing soon here.

  • Highly skilled, certified, time severed operators who will be able to complete the task in a fraction of the time it would take an unskilled operator.
  • Local knowledge, there is not an area within the Midlands we haven’t excavated in, local knowledge is very important when excavating foundations for example, as a lot of time and money can be saved if the ground conditions are known in advance.
  • Our operators have vast knowledge of drainage, footings, foundations, soak-aways, sewage treatment plants, ground reduction and retention, under pinning, propping and shoring, demolition, driveway construction and a whole lot more. Our operators will always be happy to give advice (“without prejudice”) when asked and help wherever they can.
  • Laser levering to +or- just a few millimetres with the aid of our top of the range Topcon laser level, machine receiver and grading beam, saving literally hours upon hours of hand raking and levelling.
  • Tool hire, our vans are generally loaded with all the tools you could possible need to complete your task, trench rammers, compactor plates, hydraulic breakers, petrol cut off saws, wheel barrows, post hole shovels, spades, brushes and so on.
  • Liability, when hiring mini digger and operator “we” take full liability for theft of our equipment saving you the customer the need to take out expensive third party insurance.
  • Mini diggers are not toys and the possibility of damage to the machine, property, yourself or people working around you is always a risk when inexperienced operators take to the controls of a mini digger.  
  • Liability, under most circumstances hire companies make you liable for damage and/or theft, they don’t always advise of this and you will only realise once you have a problem and the hire company draws your attention to the hire document you signed upon delivery stating the aforementioned. It is definitely advisable to clarify the situation regarding liability and insurance with your plant hire company before the hire commences as a 3t mini digger would cost over £30,000 + to replace.
  • Liability insurance is therefore advisable, this can sometimes be purchased through the larger hire companies as a bolt on, some home insurance companies will cover hired in plant but not so many do nowadays due to the increase in thefts or alternately a quick internet search will pull up some results where insurance can be purchased.
  • The majority of hire companies state on their terms and conditions that liability is not passed back to them until the machine has been collected. This means you could “off hire” a machine on a Friday but the hire company may not collect until Monday, you would still be liable for that machine until it was collected on the Monday.

I got Simply Recycling to dig out our front and rear gardens ready for paving. The mini digger driver was fantastic and cleared so much more in 1 day than I could have. It was my first grab lorry too, so i wasn't sure how much soil it'd hold, but after seeing it I'd never use a skip for this type of job again. Great honest, hard working lads and all for a good price. A good find. Thanks. .

Lucie C
We've just had a full lorry load of soil and rubble collected. SRL were on site within an hour of calling them for a quote. The site was left clear enough for the drive to be re-used without even needing to sweep it. Very helpful and diligent and as noted in other comments, the vehicles are well maintained. Would definitely 100% recommend this company to anyone, Joe and his son are spot on.
