    The type of excavation that you embark on will depend on the type of building and construction. In some cases, you need to dig deep and also relocate large amounts of soil as well as rocks, in other instances, like when excavating a trench, the excavation task is only a little task.

    The very same can be claimed when working on your landscaping, particularly if you are working on flat surface. The equipment you need to move, and also the deepness of the excavation will direct you in determining the type of excavation required. For the most part, excavation is classified based on the sort of material being removed from the earth. We provide excavator hire Humpty Doo in the entire city area as well as South-west.


    This sort of excavation includes the removal of the top layer of the earth's surface. This layer includes soil, plants, and also other debris. This kind of excavation can be finished either using a mini excavator which is generally used for smaller jobs or limited access sites. If the ground is too compact then our 8-ton excavator or 21-ton Excavator will defiantly get the job done. Either of these Excavators can dig trenches as well as lay pipelines, it simply depends upon the dimension as well as weight of the pipes.

    Stripping excavation Humpty Doo

    This kind of excavation is also referred to as cut and fill. This excavation is common when working on a large location where an excavator removes layers of dirt, sand, rocks, and also various other debris, and relocates it to another area with the possibility of it being used as backfilling. When all the job has been completed, the land may also be graded.


    This is done by specialist excavation contractors Humpty Doo like Dobson Excavations. It calls for the combination of a rock hammer attachment, for the excavator. This is because the excavator alone may not have the power to cut through the rock as trying to do this will ruin the excavator. Instead, we utilise the rock hammer attachment which will break the rocks into smaller pieces.


    This sort of excavation gets its name from the kind of material being removed. It is a mix of soil as well as water, which is a difficulty during construction. Rather than allowing the soil and water to restrain construction, it is usually best to remove it and spread it to dry. Conversely, this material is relocated to another area.

    Earth Excavation Humpty Doo

    This is the main kind of excavation done before the construction of structures, bridges, and drainage channels. Earth excavation entails the removal of topsoil and also the rock layer below.

    Excavator hire Humpty Doo based upon a clear Objective

    What type of excavation you need determines the kind of excavator that is most appropriate for the project.

Our auger attachments are 200mm, 300mm, 400mm and 600mm. For ripping through tough ground, the ripper attachment will tear through just about any ground. The 2 Ton Excavator is excellent for making it through tight access gate fences as well as through garages and carports.

    Basement excavator

    This excavation can be rather challenging because it is based on the design of the structure, and also just how deep the excavation specialist expects the building to go. This type of excavation involves using some of the most effective excavators on the market.

    Road excavator

    All road construction require excavation, typically of the topsoil, before any kind of grading or scraping is done. Sometimes the physical properties of the fill material may not be optimal so the excavator may be needed to relocate the material to vehicles which will transfer it somewhere else.
