5 Tonne Excavators

Date: 18/04/17

Sometimes you need that balance between the compactness and flexibility of a mini digger, and the power of a larger excavator. Our range of 5 tonne diggers offers just that, and here we’ll take a look at a few of the reasons why they are the perfect fit for any construction site or project.

Work in Confined Spaces – If you are working on a project where space is tight and there isn’t much room to move your machinery and equipment, a 5 tonne digger is the perfect choice. It has the power of a larger machine, but can work within narrow and tight spaces with ease.

Variety of Attachments – The standard bucket will be attached to all 5 tonne excavators but depending on your specific requirement there are a wide range of attachments suitable for a variety of purposes. Breakers, compactors and grapples can all be used depending on the phase of the construction project, boosting productivity and efficiency on site.

Comfort of Control - We keep our fleet up to date, with new technologies leveraged to promote a rising standard in all aspects of our plant hire. For 5 tonne diggers one of the biggest leaps in advancement has come for the operator. Cabins are climate controlled with LCD monitors showing a wide range of important stats and figures. It’s a more comfortable position to be in that it used to be!

If you are looking for a mini digger for your project, contact Ardent Hire today. We have a wide range of plant hire available right across the country, and our 5 tonne excavators offer great manoeuverability and flexibility for any environment, location and terrain.
