Man and digger
« on: August 02, 2012, 09:43:13 AM »
Can anyone recommend a “man and digger” service in Marple, I need a mini digger with a skilled person to operate it. – a skip loader would also be great.

No I don't but I bet Paul Jones of the Marple Business Forum does. E mail him he always gets back.

A few years ago we used a great guy called Mark Barton from over New Mills way trading as "Mark's Mini Diggers", but I dunno if he's still around. These days we hire our own digger!! Cheaper and more fun, especially if you get friends around. Everyone secretly wants a go!!

There is a company called Josh Robinson Excavations down near Marple Tip at Rose Hill - just at the entrance to Rose Hill Station - good reports I hear.

Update.

I talk to some of Josh Robinson staff that was putting up a new fence at their site using 3 diggers!   They said a “man and digger” was about £350 + vat for a day.

I found someone on ebay that did a very good job for a lot less, he is based in Ashton under Lyne, his details are 0161 330 3649 or 07979 530095.

Mark Barton is no longer around, last seen he was heading off in a boat around the world!
