General Plant

Highway Plant offers general plant machinery hire across Cornwall. 

We have an extensive range of mini and midi diggers in our fleet to suit your requirements for trenching and excavating. Our current range includes the latest in Hitachi and Kubota rubber tracked diggers, ranging from 1 tonne (t) to 13t (steel tracks). We understand and appreciate that working space is sometimes limited, with this in mind we have a line up of 'Zero Swing' diggers which are available for hire.

If you need something extra, we are stockists of hydraulic hammers which can be fitted to all our diggers as well as augers, which are able to fit our 1.7t to 3t diggers. Hydraulic quick fit hitches are fitted as standard on our machines that are 3t and larger. In addition all diggers are also fitted with the latest double lock hitches, which are required in accordance to Health and Safety on site by many contractors.

We also offer roller and dumper truck hire in Redruth and all of Cornwall. Our large variety of dumpers range from 1t to 10t as well as power swivels from 2.3t to 6t.. Features of our dumpers include:

  • Large Heaped Skip Capacities
  • Touch Designs and Fabrications to Ensure Reliability
  • Low Centre of Gravity for Superb Stability and Site Accessibility
  • High Ground Clearance
  • Power Swivels - enabling effective and efficient placements of loads to either side

There are optional trailers available for hire for most models of roller.
