Our Diggers

Watershed Excavations currently has two diggers; a 1.5 and 5.5 Tonne, as well as an 11 Tonne tipper truck.

Our 1.5 Tonne Kubota digger, affectionately known as Dougless, is perfect for sneaking between your house and fence, or tidying up in tight areas. A range of bucket sizes mean we can deal with any issue or need in a tight spot.

Our bigger digger, Doug, is a 5.5 Tonne Komatsu with zero swing. It works a tilt head, mulcher, grab bucket and a range of extensions and bucket sizes, as well as augers capable of drilling holes up to 5m  deep and up to 600mm diameter. With all that variety, we can handle just about anything thrown at us.
