AJH Mini Digger Hire & Building Services Devon Call 07919 336000

Peace of Mind - For residential customers we know that it can be concerning to have excavation works carried out on your property. Once the digger is brought to site on the back of the trailer, it will be unloaded and positioned on site with every effort made to cause minimum damage to any lawns or gardens with the use of ground sheets where possible.
If you would like Andy to discuss the process and timetable of excavation works with you and/or your neighbours, then he would be happy to do so. As Andy will be operating the digger himself, and not sub-contracting out the work, then he will be on site to answer all of your questions step-by-step and put your mind at rest.


Our quotes specify all works in detail, no hidden extras, and no surprises.

The siting and construction of your pond depends on many factors, soil type being one of them. Andy can advise on the excavation and construction of your pond including liners and pumps.
This includes levelling of land, building walls and retaining walls, building steps, laying concrete bases, paths, driveways......the list is virtually endless. Andy can advise and source materials, either new or reclaimed depending on the look and style you are aiming to achieve.
Often used to provide drainage, the ditch can be cleared to ensure an unobstructed flow of water or newly dug to enhance drainage requirements.
The expanding tracks on the mini digger can cope with an increase in gradient aswell as being able to straddle the trench providing for easier access to keep the job moving forward.
Installation of manholes, pipework, traps, septic tanks.
Cable and pipe laying
Cable and pipe laying for either residential home owners, commercial contractors or the building trade in Devon. All excavation work is carried out to an efficient and high standard with minimum fuss using our 1.6 tonne mini digger/ excavator with expanding tracks. This means that the tracks will widen to either side of the trench in most cases, allowing the job to move forward more efficiently.
Stump removal
Stump removal consists of the complete removal of the stump.
Site clearance
This includes debris, bricks, rubble, hedges and trees and as Andy has extensive knowledge and contacts he can arrange for skips or rubble sack removal using local hauliers.
From digging house footings and foundations for extensions to new builds,
garages, outbuildings, stables and concrete bases. If the job isn't listed please ask!
