Hiring Heavy Construction Gear If you are an amateur house builder like me, sometimes you need to call in the big guns to help you with your construction project. If you need to excavate a large hole, dig a trench or to drill boreholes on your property, you will probably need to hire some heavy equipment. I will be posting lots of useful tips on this blog which I hope will help you to get the best deal when it comes to hiring heavy construction gear. I will review the best types of kit for different jobs, transporting the gear to your site, and providing you with information which will help you to keep your workforce safe.



If you've got a sizeable construction project ahead but have to clear the existing ground before you can proceed, you need to make sure that you hire in the right equipment from an efficiency and productivity point of view. Yet, you may not have a great deal of room to work with if the job site is quite restricted and there is a great deal of debris to clear before you can begin. In this case, you may need several different types of equipment and should certainly focus your attention on a posi-track machine. What do you need to think about as you talk with hire companies?

Machine Variety

Posi-track machinery is purpose-made for your type of job site. It'll be as surefooted as they come due to the wheel tracking equipment, and you can find different categories of the machine, based on the scale of the work ahead. Generally speaking, they are classified according to the power of the engine.

Wet or Dry

To begin with, you must figure out exactly what you need and hire the equipment either on a wet or dry basis. If you're not sure what this means, then you can hire the machinery on a dry contract if you have an operator on-site and have the fuel needed to do the job. Alternatively, if you need everything else, then you will need to specify a wet hire.

Relevant Attachments

You will also need to figure out what attachments you need, and there is a variety to choose from, based on exactly what type of work you need to perform. For example, if you have to agitate some of the rubble before you can move it from one point to another, then you may need to rent a rake. If you need to pick up unstable or unpredictable loads, then you may need a grapple bucket. You may also need a broom attachment to help to clear up after the work is all done.

Perfect Choice

Above all else, you should remember that this type of machinery is known for its predictable nature and it can work very well in rough or wet conditions.

Making Your Selection

Talk with your equipment hire specialist to see what machines they have available and to order your attachments. You can then figure out whether you want to hire on a wet or dry basis and take advantage of their expert operators if you don't have those staff on site.
