    The exact same can be stated when working on your landscape design, especially if you are working on flat surface. The equipment you require to relocate, and the depth of the excavation will assist you in establishing the type of excavation required. In many cases, excavation is classified based upon the type of material being removed from the earth. We offer excavator hire Whitby in the entire city area and South-west.


    This type of excavation entails the removal of the top layer of the earth's surface. This layer consists of dirt, plants, and other debris. This type of excavation can be finished either using a mini excavator which is normally made use of for smaller sized tasks or limited access sites. When the ground is too compact then our 8-ton excavator or 21-ton Excavator will certainly finish the job. Either of these Excavators can dig trenches and lay pipes, it simply depends upon the dimension and weight of the pipes.

    Stripping excavation Whitby

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


    This is done by specialist excavation contractors Whitby like Dobson Excavations. It requires the combination of a rock hammer accessory, for the excavator. This is because the excavator alone may not have the power to puncture the rock as attempting to do this will wreck the excavator. Instead, we use the rock hammer accessory which will break the rocks into smaller pieces.


    This type of excavation gets its name from the type of material being removed. It is a mix of dirt and water, which is a difficulty throughout construction. As opposed to permitting the dirt and water to restrain construction, it is normally best to remove it and spread it to completely dry. Conversely, this material is transferred to another area.

The 2 Ton Excavator is outstanding for making it through limited access gate fences and through garages and carports.

    Basement excavator

    This excavation can be rather complex because it is based on the design of the building, and exactly how deep the excavation contractor expects the building to go. This type of excavation involves making use of one of the most powerful excavators in the market.

    Road excavator

    All road construction call for excavation, normally of the topsoil, before any type of grading or scraping is done.
