L&D Earthmoving hire these combos for sub-divisions, road works, commercial properties, councils and developers on a regular basis..

The 8t combos are the largest we supply as a combo. The excavators are a step up in size and required a truck and trailer for transporting throughout Brisbane, Gold Coast, Ipswich and the Sunshine Coast areas.

The 8t combos for hire are also used for lifting various materials including box culverts and more. With the additional option of height limiters on some excavators, a wet hired 8 tonne combo has the safety needed to work under power lines, in rail corridors and under bridges.
