Would expect to pay around 15 an hour dug by hand, 30 with mini digger and 50 by bigger digger.

Obviously more expensive if its only few hours work because of cost of transporting equipment.

Price per metre though?


I have about 250m of very wet land to dig....so would need a bigger digger just cos the ground is so unstable/boggy.

Our drainage board charged us 30 an hour for a 15t digger to clear our ditches.
