Shady Hire


Shady Characters doesn’t just lead the market in affordable shade, shelter and shed solutions. We also hire out two fully serviced Kubota U17-3 Excavators. With Zero Tail swing and full 360-degree rotation, the Shady Hire excavators are great for a small weekend fencing project, a week-long landscaping gig or to pull out those old tree stumps in your yard. It’s small width and shorter boom allow it to work in the smallest of areas whilst remaining fully manoeuvrable and in control. It comes with a Ripper, 300mm, 450mm and 1000mm buckets included in the daily hire price with additional auger drivers available for a small hire fee (see prices below).
