Looking for a reliable and affordable service with a personal touch?

Welcome to my website, my name is Gavin Day.  I am an owner/operator with 2 mini diggers - both diggers have a range of specialist attachments to get the job done quicker and easier.  I have a micro digger which will fit through a standard doorway and I have a 3 ton mini digger that will fit in between 2 concrete fence posts if the gravel board is removed.  I work with BUILDERS, LANDSCAPERS and DIY-ers and anybody who needs my services.  I can carefully dig footings for extensions.  I can dig up driveways, breaking up concrete with my concrete breaker, dig out tree stumps with a ripper tooth attachment, level gardens ready for turf with my rake bucket, dig out banks, prepare ground for patios and terraces.  Basically anything that can be done with a digger and is too back-breaking to be done by hand.   I am literally a one-stop-shop to get you out of the ground!   A real specialist in what I do.

What our clients say...



First and foremost Gavin is a really genuine guy who will work with you to achieve your goal. His work is immaculate and his approach is methodical ensuring there are no surprises when digging. Having said that he is also very fast. He completed some back filling and new trench work, for our Edwardian property where no one really know where all the pipes, electric are and Gavin was excellent at ensuring the work was completed without any damage what so ever. I have had incidents in the past where old drains have been smashed etc so the careful approach is worth its weight in gold. His day rate is very good value for the service and quality of work he achieves. I will definitely work with Gavin again on future projects and will be sure to recommend him to family and friends.

Gavin is a very experienced operator. Very clean and tidy and his machines are new and reliable. Turned up on time every day and got straight to work. He also saved me a lot of money due to knowing the right people to use for grab lorries and working directly with suppliers for materials. A very enjoyable experience and great value.
