Canberra's Confined Space Experts

Excavations Canberra

Tight Spot Mini Diggers offer a complete range of services. This family owned and operated business has mini diggers (sometimes called Dingo mini digger or Kanga mini digger) with skilled and experienced operators available to hire, as well as a two tonne tip truck, a Bobcat E20 1.5 tonne Excavator, and a Bobcat S130.

Excavation works are our specialty, and whether you want contour grading, cut and fill, site preparation for paving, turf, concreting or building, Tight Spot Mini Diggers have all the right equipment and the skilled operators you need for this work. Experienced and qualified, excavation can be carried out efficiently and safely. Depending on the size of the job and the accessibility of the site, Tight Spot Mini Diggers have a range of machines to ensure that you can use the right equipment for the job. Naturally, where access is tight, the mini diggers provide a great solution. The bigger Bobcats can do a lot of work on sites with better access.

Our operator is licensed and fully insured, and has additional qualifications in earthmoving. Hiring an earthmoving professional mitigates the risks associated with excavations such as hitting service pipes and cables, or damaging property. Also, our experienced operator can work with speed and accuracy to give you an efficient, effective and timely solution.


In getting the site levelled, graded or contoured in preparation for landscaping, laying turf or paving, Tight Spot Mini Diggers has the right equipment for you, and with special expertise in landscaping. Our mini diggers with experienced operators offer small space solutions. The mini digger has a multipurpose four in one bucket with the ability to open as jaws and this is great for grabbing rocks and tree stumps if needed. On the mini digger there is also a ripper attachment perfect for breaking up the ground or aerating.

Our 1.5 and 2.0 tonne machines for bigger jobs will make light work of the job as needed. Auger attachments for our machinery can make digging holes easy work for tree planting and fencing.

Building Site preparation

Tight Spot Mini Diggers have the machinery and know-how to prepare for building and concreting work, for jobs small and large, private and commercial. For cut and fill excavation or precision levelling, depending on your job, we have the right equipment. 

Tight Spot Mini Diggers can also provide trenching equipment for sewerage or plumbing trench work. Precision hole drilling is also possible with auger attachments.

Moving materials

Whether it's delivering materials to site or site cleanup after the job, Tight Spot Mini Diggers can also provide a two tonne tip truck to make the job easier. When bringing materials to site, our tipper is able to carry sands, clean/unclean fill, soil, mulch, pebbles and rocks as needed. This truck has a custom built tray with high sides that fold down, allowing the quick and efficient removal of materials from site including soil, rubble, green waste and rubbish.

With various larger Bobcats also available, Tight Spot Mini Diggers can be used safely and effectively for hauling jobs.


We have fully licensed operators with appropriate insurances, plus extensive knowledge and experience. All equipment is compliant with Australian Standards and safety requirements. Our machines are kept in top condition with regular servicing and safety checks. The safety of customers and clients will always come first and we guarantee to clean up after the job is complete!
