After more than 20 years of service to the Horowhenua region, Paul Ireland Digger Hire knows the community well. With the new highways being developed, our region is set to expand. Our team has been doing projects for land development and maintenance, a reflection of the new highways creating long-term work for civil construction. We are excited to watch the town grow. To keep up with demand, we have acquired new excavators and trucks capable of carrying out a multitude of tasks including root cutting, section clearing, foundations and driveways, all at competitive pricing with workmanship guaranteed.

We also have a stump grinder, which has been busy. There are also loaders and grabs, rollers, compactors and graders available. We also provide a wide range of concrete services, including concrete cutting and core boring. We have designed a hotbox for hot mixing jobs to help with utility reinstatement jobs. Underground thrusting is another specialised service. If you need topsoil, metal, sand or raceway lime supplies it’s no problem.
