Although most plant hire equipment is used on construction sites, it can be just as useful to have when a raging storm has passed through your area and left loads of debris in its wake. As we enter the summer storm season, you might find that you need heavy equipment to move broken branches and trees out of the way.

Cleaning up areas is not limited to debris that has accumulated as a result of a storm. Sometimes, when you are preparing a job site you need machinery that is capable of moving big, heavy things out of the way, so that your construction site has no obstacles. A clean job site is a must no matter what it is that you are building. Moving heavy rocks, big trees, and all sorts of plants is really made so much easier when you have the right equipment for the job.

Each clearing project is going to be very much different from the next, as no two sites are going to be identical. For this reason, choosing the right kinds of machinery is so important. If you are not sure about what it is that you really need, you can always contact us and we can assist you.


When you are moving debris around, you need to consider a few things:

  1. Density

Debris, whether it is after a storm or if you are clearing a construction site, comes in different types of densities. The more dense the debris is, the harder it will be to move, so you might want to opt for machinery that is up to the task of moving whatever it is that will be moved.

  1. Law

This one has nothing to do with storm debris but rather with moving top soil. If you are clearing an area on which to build, there are certain laws in place that will determine exactly how much top soil can be moved. Remember, top soil is vitally important and it takes up to 100 years to make just 1 cm of it!

  1. Location

With this you will need to consider exactly where you intend to move the debris to. You will need to make sure that you have a plan in place for where the debris will be taken as you are unlikely to be using your plant hire equipment to move it around.
