Operator For Hire

Excavator, Dumper, Tele-handler & Forklift Operators For Hire

Tiger Plant offer our customers the option to rent a machine with an operator on as short a time frame as a daily basis. Giving our customers peace of mind, Tiger Plant have trained C.P.C.S qualified excavator, dumper truck and forklift operators available to undertake works on a variety of building sites. This ensures the job will be completed safely, and by a competent person. We are currently involved in projects ranging from pulling footings for small house building companies, such as Heritage Building in Swindon, to residential customers all the way to environmental companies digging trial pits, soil sample pits and have even excavated ground for a 20,000L fuel storage tank.

Whether you require footings for a small extension, or require longer term contract works undertaken, contact us today and we'll talk you through how we can help.

Trial Pits For Soil Condition Analysis

One of our most popular services is used by Environmental companies, soil testing companies, Geotechnical Testing services and site service companies. Very often their customers require newly acquired sites or potential sites to have soil analysis undertaken on them to understand the soil structure and condition. Using one of our excavators with an operator driving the machine, we can dig trial holes in the soil for engineers and geotechnicians to remove required samples. The ground can then be made good and handed back to vendors/clients.

Benefits to our customers

This operated hire service is a hassle free solution to our customers in that they only need to make one call to organise undertaking the project. Simply provide us with access restrictions, machine require and site location & we can do the rest! Tiger Plant are in the supply chains of a number of companies & we continue to undertake this work due to our efficiency and professionalism.

We also undertake projects for retail customers, so whether you need your garden grading, footings pulled for an extension or a base dug out for your patio, we can help.

Percolation testing

Percolation testing allows us to identify how well a particular soil/sub soil drains water. Usually this is a measurement over time of a fixed amount of water, which will allow a drainage designer to establish the optimum solution of a sites drainage needs. We undertake these almost on a daily basis for our customers. This avoids the need to call multiple contractors out to site, as we offer a complete turn key solution for a perc test.
