At Ryno Hire, we’re committed to giving you the right knowledge and tools to get the job done yourself – no training or professional experience necessary. That’s why today we’re going to focus on one of the most versatile pieces of equipment at our facility: the excavator. Why is this machine so useful? Well, not only does it dig and excavate earth, but with the simple change of an attachment, it can be used to dig post holes, transport concrete sleepers, break up hard surface rocks, and much more. On top of that, it comes in a range of sizes, so that you can get the right one for your project, whatever the scale. Excavators are an absolute must have on many work sites, especially if you’re digging foundations, driveways, swimming pools, or just landscaping. So, how do you pick the right one? And how do they work?
