Excavator hire and attachments from leading brand names

At Selwood, we have one of the most comprehensive excavator fleets for hire, from leading brand names such as CAT, Takeuchi, Yanmar and Hyundai.

Our excavators range from 1.5 tonne compact machinery that can operate in smaller spaces to 14.5 tonne machines, offering adaptability and optimum performance.

A full range of excavator attachments hire is also available, including breakers and augers.

All Selwood machinery hire excavators are fitted with a keypad immobiliser, Trackunit - a management tool which creates a new 4-digit code each time a machine is hired out for increased security. They also benefit from a number of technology improvements including the use of a tablet system for servicing and deliveries and QR codes on all machines to reduce on site paperwork.


Other benefits of excavator hire from Selwood include:

Travel Alarms

We are committed to supplying equipment above and beyond the latest health and safety standards. New excavators into the fleet are supplied with travel alarms fitted as a standard. This alarm gives an audible warning that the operator in the machine is tracking backwards or forwards so that anyone in the vicinity is aware of that movement and can take appropriate action to maintain safety.


Proximity Sensors

The Proximity Warning System is an audible and visual warning system designed to reduce the risk of vehicle-personnel collisions and can be used anywhere the proximity of people and vehicles working together is of concern.


Hammer / Shear / Rotate Circuits

Our latest investment in our excavator hire fleet includes 4-way flow hydraulics fitted as standard, enabling customers to use attachments such as rotating grabs, pulverisers and log grapples. Please ask your local representative on prices and accessories available outside of our core items.
