Plant Hire

Mainline are market leaders in plant equipment hire. Thanks to continual investment and our aggressive replenishment strategy we are able to provide a highly specialised selection of machinery as well as a full range of accessories.

In response to current environmental and Clean Air Zone requirements, we regularly update our stock and are able to offer low emission machines as well as particulate filters for low emission compliance.

Our plant hire inventory includes excavators, rollers, dumpers, telehandlers, rammers, vibrator plates, pressure washers, bowsers, compressors, lighting towers and power generators.


Our range of diggers spans from 0.8 Tonne to 8 Tonne and includes a variety of features and accessories.

Popular models include the BOBCAT E-80 compact excavator with its “auto idle” feature designed to reduce noise and fuel consumption. Smaller machines include the versatile 0.80 T Kubota K008-3 and the 1.5 T Kubota KX016-4 Mini Excavator, which feature a comprehensive range of breakers.
