Hire our mini excavator for self drive, or have one of our expert operators drive. Two great options.

Our most popular excavator for hire is the Kubota 1.7 tonne mini excavator. For the best rate, a company you can trust, and to be fully insured, Excavating solutions is your best partner in the South East of Melbourne.

If you feel confident, you can just hire the machine and drive yourself. Otherwise, we have skilled and experienced operators you can direct.
