Earthmoving equipment is the most commonly used type of equipment in the construction industry, with excavators, bulldozers and backhoes leading the charge. These titans of heavy machinery do the all-important work of shifting soil to where it needs to be, digging holes, removing debris and moving materials.
The construction industry is booming. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, it grew to nearly 12 trillion U.S dollars worldwide, with the Asia Pacific at the forefront. Yet, for many contractors, entrepreneurs and small business owners, getting into the industry can seem too expensive to consider. How do you pay for all that heavy equipment and the skilled workers to operate it?
That’s where dry hire comes into the picture.
With dry hire, you simply hire all the necessary equipment and operate it yourself. You think you can’t? Well, we think you can.
Ryno Hire is a family-owned and operated business with more than a decade’s worth of experience in the earthmoving equipment industry. Whether you need a machine for a day or a year, we can help you.
Need more information before getting started? Check out our list of some of the most commonly used earthmoving equipment and the lowdown on when to use them – and when not to.
This widely used piece of earthmoving equipment is easily recognised by its boom, dipper, bucket and (usually) a bright yellow or orange colour. It’s used in mining, landscaping, river dredging and countless other projects. While buying an excavator is expensive, dry hiring an excavator doesn’t have to be.
An excavator is the go-to piece of equipment for earthmoving projects is useful for multiple purposes and comes in different sizes for different tasks. We offer some of the best and most versatile dry hire excavators currently available.
An excavator wasn’t meant to be used as a crane. Only a well-qualified person who truly knows what they’re doing should attempt to use it for heavy lifting.
Take your pick! If you’re on a construction site, chances are you’ll find an excavator. It’s used to dig trenches to install wiring and foundations in, lift away debris, both natural and artificial, and demolish buildings, to name a few.
More compact than the excavator, the loader has a tractor-like shape and a big bucket attached to the front. It’s used in landscaping, construction, mining etc., to transport materials into trenches or onto trucks and comes in different models for varying degrees of power, speed and agility.
A loader is usually smaller, more manoeuvrable than other types of equipment, and can fit into tighter spaces.
It can also be more limited in its range of movement than other pieces of machinery.
Levelling grounds and moving materials and debris around farms, mines, construction sites and other common work locations.
Despite its small size, the mini loader still packs a powerful lift. Our range of mini loaders combines the grunt that you’d expect to get the job done with an easy-to-handle level of agility.
A mini loader offers value for money. It’s agile, lets you stand up while you steer it and is easy to move between work sites. You can make tighter turns in it than some other vehicles will let you get away with, and it can fit into most tight-access job sites.
If you have a large-scale excavation or construction project needing to be completed in a hurry, it will take longer in a mini loader than in a larger machine.
A mini loader is appropriate for all smaller earthmoving activities, from shifting soil to sand and more.
Also known as the “dump truck”, the tipper truck lets you move material such as sand and soil around your worksite, take loads to the tip or another site and beyond. These trucks work hand in hand with other equipment like excavators and can quickly transport large quantities of materials. We have tipper trucks for dry hire for jobs both large and small.
A tipper truck offers value for money and can transport a wide variety of materials in its spacious tray.
You need to hold at least a manual driver’s licence to operate one.
Carrying large loads of materials both around worksites and on public roads.
Our mini dumper is the perfect companion for any piece of equipment you could hire. It’s smaller than a regular dumper but easier than pushing a wheelbarrow around.
It’s versatile, easy to transport, and easy to manoeuvre
Limited by their size, a mini dumper is not the best choice for larger job sites where a loader can get the job done quicker.
Hauling materials around on construction, roadworks or landscaping sites.
Benefits of Dry Hire
With dry hire, you get the benefit of using earthmoving equipment without stumping up the sometimes tens of thousands of dollars required to purchase the equipment yourself. You also don’t need to hire skilled workers and pay them to do the job for you, saving you even more cash.
Another benefit of dry hire is its flexibility. Ryno Hire lets you borrow equipment for a short of a timeframe as a day or as long as a year, making it an option you can turn to complete projects big and small.
Apart from having some of the best rates around, we also have no additional charges for insurance on any of our hireable machines.
And if you try to complete a DIY project and get stuck, we’re only a phone call away.
