Plant Attachments in Watford, Hemel Hempstead and across the wider Hertfordshire & Buckinghamshire region

Grab lorries, diggers, and other large pieces of plant and machinery are highly versatile tools, capable of working a huge range of jobs on site. Already equipped with powerful booms, grab arms, and other apparatus for lifting, excavating, and demolishing, they can be made even more useful with the right plant attachments. These are specialist tools that connect to your plant to provide improved functionality to tackle specific tasks. Here at Watford Plant Hire and Grab Hire, we can provide you with the right plant attachments for the job as part of your tailored plant hire package.


These are just some of our most popular plant attachments:

Breakers, Hammers, and Peckers

Whatever name you choose to give them, these plant attachments do the same job – breaking up concrete and paving slabs with a powerful percussive motion. More efficient and safer to use than a manual jackhammer, they can be attached to a range of machines, allowing easy access to any site.

Demolition Grapples

Demolition grapples are hydraulically operated attachments used to demolish and move non-concrete structures and materials. More efficient than a traditional bucket, a grapple has jaws which meet as they close. This allows them to pick up heavy objects with accuracy and precision, and to establish a safe and firm grip before moving materials across site.
Easy to use and versatile, grapples make light work of small demolition jobs and help to keep waste materials separated.

Trained Machinery Operators

Plant attachments give even greater versatility to our grab lorries and diggers. If you are hiring them as part of a package, you can rest easy knowing that our operators are well-versed in using all of these attachments. Whatever task you have in mind, they will be able to assist you, providing a professional service to ensure a job well done and to maintain the safety of your team.

Riddle Buckets

These attachments complement our digger and mini digger hire service. A riddle bucket is similar in design to a traditional bucket but because it has holes at the back, it works like a sieve and can separate stone from soil. Also known as a shaker bucket, because of the motion it uses, this attachment fits onto a digger to help separate aggregates and topsoil.
We can deliver riddle buckets attached to a digger as part of our comprehensive plant hire and machine hire service, or we can supply them separately with clear instructions on fitting.

Trench Rammers

A trench rammer is a small compactor used to apply direct force over a more concentrated area. This makes our plant ideal for compacting soil to a specific depth. Most commonly used to compact trenches when digging footings, a trench rammer works particularly well with cohesive soil types. This machinery gets into areas that a standard compactor can’t.
When a job needs deeper compaction for firmer soil layers, trench rammers make filling faster and more targeted.

Earth Drills

Also referred to as earth augers or post-hole augers, earth drills are tools used to make holes in the ground. They have a vertical metal rod which rotates or a pipe with blades which can be used as an attachment to cut or scrape soil.
