Wheeled Excavators

Plantforce offers a wide range of operated and self-drive wheeled excavator hire options. Our wheeled excavator hire (Rubber Duck) fleet includes 14 tonne up to 22-tonne machines.

About our Wheeled Digger hire fleet

Wheeled excavators are fitted with rubber tyres, making them perfect for work on streets and roads to prevent damage from the steel tracks of regular excavators.

Wheeled excavators are ideal for urban environments, offering smooth operation on concrete and other hard surfaces. Some of the benefits of choosing to hire a wheeled excavator rather than a crawler excavator are:

  • Cost-effective: Wheeled excavators reach speeds of around 22 mph and can travel on public highways. It allows a wheeled excavator to travel between nearby sites, potentially reducing transport costs significantly.
  • Stability: Wheeled excavators include outriggers for improved balance. Using outriggers in tandem with the dozer blade allows for even better stability.
  • Versatile: These machines perform well on hard surfaces without causing cracks or other damage. Wheeled excavators are also compatible with various interchangeable attachments to handle different jobs.

We help you manage the equipment you hire from us with our Hire Insights package. Here you can view a single dashboard to quickly assess the performance of the machinery on your project thanks to insights into their utilisation, fuel consumption, CO2 output and much more.

All our wheeled excavators have a GPS solution to suit your business. We can either provide a complete machine and GPS set-up or just a machine that is GPS-ready, so you can fit your existing kit to one of our hire wheeled excavators. All supported by the experts at Plantforce Digital, we have the knowledge and equipment to support you every step of the way with a full range of GPS and machine control hire solutions.

If your application could benefit from a specialist attachment to complete the task more efficiently, you can also hire a range of hydraulic and mechanical attachments from our dedicated attachment specialists at Plantforce Attachments. From tilt rotator hire to breaker or crushing bucket, we have arguably the largest excavator attachment fleet in the UK for you to hire.

Our wheeled excavator hire allows you to get the work done for one or two projects without buying one you might not have to use again. Hire a wheeled excavator that is versatile and powerful to take on your project and keep your costs low.
