Drum rollers

We have a vast roller hire range available for you to choose from here at Smiths Hire – this includes ride-on rollers, which are the ideal choice for levelling and compacting projects. Alongside the machines themselves, we can also provide a selection of accessories that complement our various rollers (including single-drum, ride-on and vibrating variants), so you can be sure you’ll have everything required to get the job done. We provide everything from twin-drum rollers (designed to provide perfect results on driveways, highway and utility work), to single-drum rollers, which are capable of carrying out tasks in smaller, hard-to-reach areas that bigger machines will struggle with.

Trench rammers

Our Trench Rammer hire service offers you access to the perfect tools for compacting materials like sand, loose ground, and gravel. Sometimes referred to as earth rammers, our trench rammers feature various usability options for you to choose from, with a choice of foot sizes from 100mm to 300mm, making them the perfect choice for those smaller compaction jobs where a drum roller won’t fit. Each of our trench rammers feature state-of-the-art engines and safety features such as oil level warning lights, so you can rest assured that the one you hire will allow you to get the job done safely and efficiently.

So, if you think that any of our ground compaction machines would benefit your project, you’re more than welcome to hire some!
